Smartphones have become perhaps “too smart” for many consumers. I don’t know about you, but I guess ,on the average, I only get to use less than half the functions on my phone.

I suspect I am not the only one with the experience.

With the news that Apple is planning to come up with a cheaper  phone about half the price of the current model, I can’t help thinking this maybe the direction smartphones go in the future.

Hopefully, soon we’ll be able to just pay for the functions we use.


The Magical 199

Many popular smartphones are priced at USD 199. And now, same price is being charged for an increasing number of Tablets as well, such as the Kindle Fire, Nexus 7 and possibly the upcoming Microsoft Space.

Apparently,the 199 price tag does great wonder in prompting consumers to buy such products without much hesitation.

Perhaps, any price ending in 9 cannot be wrong?
