Totally agree with you. Smartphone is becoming a necessity for the people because of its number applications that make life too easy.

I can tell the people above me use smartphones quite a bit... if you know what I mean.

this article should really be titled:

see, i have a smartphone, but im not interested at all in social networking. im not saying i don't do it, i have a facebook account with the primary objective being keeping in touch with family and friends overseas.

i don't log in everyday to see what they up to, nor do i log in every 5 mins to see whose up to what. i also prefer talking to people face to face, not sitting next to someone texting someone else million miles away.

i talk to my friends regularly, hell, i see them daily. i do not care much for their status updates.

sorry for straying....staying on topic, i use my phone as my personal business assistant. i need a smartphone. its handy. keeping appointments, checking shedules is so much more convenient. with the integrated web access i am able to keep my pc and phone calendars fully synced 100% of the time. life would be fine without smartphones, but smartphones just make life easier.

i picked up Xperia Play not because i wanted a smart phone but because i needed to "upgrade". i was tired with my old phone which i was using for 5 years. i never felt the need to buy a smart phone because my old phone could practically everything i wanted - call, sms, take pictures, browse internet, play games... albiet the small screen.

i upgraded because this (the gamepad) was the only unique thing about it.

Real smartphone user will require a physical qwerty keyboard.
Rest of the user -- it should be called a multimedia/entertainment phone

Why? Sounds like outdated tech if you ask me.

so by your definition a blackberry 8520 is a smartphone and a samsung galaxy s2 is an entertainment/multimedia device........something seems wrong with that logic, im sure you can figure it out.
