They're targeting the low end here. Not the high end. For the budget conscious and emerging markets, these are decent phones.

Personally I'm done with the expensive smart phones.. they go obsolete way too fast whether it's top of the line or free with contract. Just give me a free "it works just fine" phone every 2 years.

Luckily I get my phone through work and we get up to a $200 allowance every 2 years. So I'm hoping the GS4 will be $200 in April.

IMHO it's got the right pricepoint for emerging markets (ie: India/China) which is historically where Nokia has done very well. Those markets are the only reason why Nokia's GLOBAL marketshare is still as large as it is ( somewhere around 15% as I recall). Those markets are not going to see big volume purchases of their top tier phones.
