Chip makers drive race to $20 cellphones by 2007
According to this Reuters article, prices of mobile phones will be dropping drastically over the coming years with $20 handsets available to consumers as early as 2007. It seems that mobiles phones may be even produced as cheaply as 10$. I doubt that these set will be very durable, but who cares? At that price, you just have to dump your unit in the garbage bin after a year and purchase another one.
