Girls Just Wanna Have Phones

6:00 PM -- So, this weekend I was hanging out with my friend Gina in Brooklyn, and we were talking about -- you guessed it -- the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPhone. (It's really the first product that non-geeky types have asked me if I know about in a long while, but that's another story.)

Like everyone else, she was impressed by the cool-factor and unimpressed by the price. Unlike some of my other friends, she's not going to rush out and buy it for the all-in-one phone/MP3 player/PDA capabilities.

"I don't need it, because I have a purse," she claimed.

At first I thought that was pretty funny, but maybe there's some interesting sociological research to be done here. What percentage of smartphone buyers are men and how many are women? And how many men buy smartphones simply because they can't fit all their devices into limited pocket space?

I don't know the answers for now. but it did make me wonder if a stylish "manbag" to carry all of my gizmos in could be the answer to my device problems...

Probably not -- it wouldn't go with any of my clothes.

re: Girls Just Wanna Have Phones I agree.
It goes the same as for cars, girls like them small, boys love them big.
