So if you can get a new smartphone when you upgrade for FREE or for $50 it's a bit more feasible, not to mention computers (though there are constant upgrades) last for a few years. Along with that, in todays society having a cell phone is almost a necessity, business revolve around communication over cell phones, and families communicate through cell phones. So many different variables that would point towards Smartphone sales being dominant.
All true, but it's the $30 data plan most can't afford. That, of course, doesn't stop the almighty US consumer with a credit card.
