    And $600-700 for the iphone is real? Or what about $580-600 for the Nexus One?

    My view is that:
    1.) smartphones have become portable computers
    2.) manufacturers are using that and their actual cost to crank up the cost to just about the cost of a laptop.

    Looking at the specs, and considering all the bugs it will have from running a new OS, nope!

    rdills -- say it was absolutely perfect. Would you still buy it?

    I bought the nexus one after doing research for a month+, and I bought it with the thought that I will return it. I just wanted to spend a week and play with it to see what it had improved over the previous 2 android phones and 3 iPhones I had owned. At the end of the day, it was nice, it had it's faults (quite a few), and it simply wasn't worth more than $200 or so.

    My view is that for a smartphone, $150-$250 ($250 being a lot) is acceptable. Not cheap, but acceptable. But anything more is simply robbery.

    No, I still wouldn't buy it because the specs just aren't ground breaking. At the time when the N1 was released, its specs was off the charts, so dropping $500+ could be justified. And its Android!
    But I agree, $200 to $250 is what they're worth, but sadly we always pay more for our hobby. I just keep a little savings fund on the side for it.
