A cell phone is not a console. Cell phones are seen as status symbol by a lot of people. In that case their price tag is not that important. Motorola sold boatloads of the original RAZR when it was released (as a Cingular exclusive as well), and the phone wasn't cheap and not nearly as capable as the iPhone. Apparently, the coolness factor was enough.

For my personal case, I'd certainly like to get an iPhone to replace my cell phone AND my iPod. However, $600 is a bit too much. Maybe later down the road when the price drops and the capacity increases.

i agree with what your saying about cell phones being status symbols, most people have amazing phones and dont use half the features.. but there has to be a line where people will chose a cheaper or free phone with a 2 year contract over an expensive phone.. and i think 600 dollars is over that line (unless you rich of course, then price is not an issue)

Which is why Apple has a $500 phone too :)
