The argument that an iPhone "is a toy for the rich instead of a tool for the masses" ignores the historical trends of most new technology, and especially the cell phone phenomenon. "Car phones" in the early to mid 1980s were very expensive, but within 15 years the price dropped dramatically so that they became very popular among all (but the lowest) classes of the US. Similar innovations begun by the iPhone have influenced both the development of competing products as well as reduced the cost of the Apple brand device besides its cheaper, similar competitors.

I agree that if you give it some time the price on any given new electronic device will come down to a more manigable price. Unfortunately with the iPhone it is not the price of the device that is a deterant for most people - myself included - it is the price of the phone and data packages that must be purchased to make the device useful.

Using one cellular service provider (AT*T) instead of any compatible provider smacks of monopolistic tendencies.

It is way too expensive. You are locked into a data plan and one of the most useful tools, the gps, comes at a fee. This is a toy for the rich instead of a tool for the masses.
