Yea, not to mention all the extra crap you gotta pay if you want to have a broad base of sw.   These mobile devices are turning into platforms where software fees for dinky little apps are to be the primary source of income for the hardware mfgr, much like game consoles.

It is always funny to see how the bad marketing works.
Still many people out there haven't noticed, that the iPhone doesn't cost 399$.
In fact it cost's 399$ + 24 monthly fees hidden behind some included minutes and so on.
