First, people need to stop citing Nokia's "features" when they count by numbers only because THEY ARE GIVING THE PHONE AWAY ... they have 50 million phones with their jukebox software - what's their market share of online music? When the feature is "free," as part of a subsidized phone, sure, I'll take GPS, I'll take a music player but the ONLY true test is whether people will pay FULL price for that feature. Otherwise, some carpet company can claim they help sell BMW's ... because they cover the interior of your new car ... they only numbers Nokia cna cite are FULL PRICESD phones - the rest is just marleting blather to help a consumer choose between a $49 blue phone or a $9 black phone.
