Smartphones have taken the world by storm.
But still their market share is only 30%.
Which is your take?

What is a smartphone?

Wikipedia says

A smartphone is a mobile phone that offers more advanced computing ability and connectivity than a contemporary basic 'feature phone'. Smartphones and feature phones may be thought of as handheld computers integrated within a mobile telephone, but while most feature phones are able to run applications based on platforms such as Java ME or BREW, a smartphone allows the user to install and run more advanced applications based on a specific platform. Smartphones run complete operating system software providing a platform for application developers.
i wont say a nokia 5800 is smartphone.

Smartphones invariably have a massive app, store.
Nokia doesnt.

I am defiantly, not just definitely not participating in this poll/thread. If my X6 ain't a Smartphone, it ain't a 'Dumbphone' either.

@ arkin: Chill arkin, thats what i asked in the second post! who would vote for a "dumb"phone?

@ AMG: its all up to us to decide that bro! there are no such set regulations that define a phone's category. now i feel most of nokia's phones, except the cheaper ones are premium phones. the E series can be said as a business phone, similar to blackberrys. this is what i feel... you decide what you want to term your phone!

make the poll as smartphones vs featured phones or something like that.

I use a iPhone which falls in smartphone category til I got this one I used a k810 which is not a smartphone nor a dump phone.
