just a note to consider when talking about price. the nexus one (as I use
it) is my mp3 player that can sync podcasts etc automatically. so any mp3
player that would do this I would value > €100.
Its a decent ereader for a dart journey (I recently re-read down and out in
paris & london and it was perfect), again ebooks can be synced at
home/office over wifi and I would easily value this @ >€100.
Its camera is decent and has a built in flash. Lets call that €50.
Finally its a smart phone with mobile browsing/web/GPS/phone calls etc.
Easily >150. So if you take it that you have at least 4 separate devices
that are easily portable and infinitely useful, I think the €400 (for anyone
that knows someone that will travel over to the US, ie everyone in Ireland)
its reasonable. It is not €400 just for a phone.
