Word games? Well by that logic, Nokia has smartphones like the 5800 entirely for "free".
Would you like to do a deal? I give you £5, and you pay me back £30 a month for the next two years. Since you're carrying a phone with you anyway, that's a great deal for you - you've just got £5 for free, right?
Since the poster ALREADY stated he "would carry a phone anyway" that rendered the subsidy point moot, since he would BE PAYING FOR PHONE SERVICE ANYWAY.
Really? I carry a phone anyway, and don't pay any contract. My phone only cost £180 in total - that's actually in total, not your pretend "word games" in total. I only pay for services I want, as opposed to paying for the phone.
As for apps - Symbian and Android all have the apps that anyone needs as far as I've seen. What examples of killer must have apps are only available on the Iphones? (And even if there are some, the same can be said in reverse - e.g., Nokia Maps which gives decent offline mapping as standard; Google Sky Maps is a cool astronomy tool only available on Android; both of these are far better than 100,000 apps that just make a stupid noise or display a logo, usually with you having to pay for the privilege.)
