"Smart" phones are usually most popular with dumb people. OK, there are some exceptions...but not many.

re: Men Are From Mars, Women Love Smartphones
I use a dumb phone, because I rarely need make calls when on the road and with the prepaid minutes plan it just does all what I need for a very affordable plan. I don't need to play Angry Birds while stopped at a red light and I don't need Siri to figure out if it is raining. I got a nice speedy desktop PC at home that is very reliable and flexible in its use. And compared to a smartphone with data plan it is dirt cheap.

re: Men Are From Mars, Women Love Smartphones
I am in that white male category. The reason I am still using an original Motorola RAZR is because it is still one of the slimmest phones available and it fits comfortably in my front pants pocket. When I sit down it is comfortable. I have yet to find a smart phone with a thin profile that fits comfortably in my pocket. The new RAZR is close, but it is a bit large when sitting down. I am a professional software developer so I am not a technophobe. I just do not like the size and shape of the current offerings. I am unlikely to switch to something newer until phone manufactures make a phone designed for an adult male.
