    We have a marketing study bonanza for you guys this morning. One analysis, from IDC, predicts that smartphones will finally outsell feature phones this year.

    Well when the selection is 50 smartphones to choose from and 1 jitterbug type of feature phone to choose from the numbers take care of themselves
    Anyone remember back when you could buy a smartphone WITHOUT a data plan?
