This summons up the situation quite good right now I think. 

"In any case I and about everybody I know would really love to buy a new cellphone but nobody does because we are all waiting for the Omnia, the SE experia , the Renoir, the BB Storm, the new LGs, the HTC HD, and all the other touch phones that all makers keep on presenting but never deliver.
If it's a maketing ploy to sell their cheaper models is failing miserably, all they have done is paralized the smart phone market. Nobody buy anything anymore because all these wonders are supposed to be always behind the corner."
