Geared towards those who use their phone on the move

I'm struggling to get my head around this.

A mobile phone geared towards those who use their phone on the move. Not geared towards crash victims in traction, or galactic heroes encased in carbonite. Not sat on a desk, and tethered by a wire.

Nope, it's pocket sized, battery powered, and wireless.

What will they think of next?

Re: Geared towards those who use their phone on the move

As the article implies, the Marketing Department are seriously at a loss.

"Look guys, there must be *something* this phone is particularly good at?"

"Well, er, it has a camera..."

"A crap camera"

"OK, fine, well it's got expandable SD memory"

"Like every other Android phone! Well, apart from those new Nexuses"

"Um, it has a small screen"

"A small *low-resolution* screen. But you do have a point with small"

"Small it is then. So who wants small things?"

"I dunno. Children? Backpackers? Pixies?"

"Ah I give up - just say "people on the move will love the pocketability". Now, what can we say about the Galaxy SIII..."

Re: WHY?

I think you've accidentally explained "Y":

The specs of this phone match the Galaxy Y - which stands for "Young". Yet da yoot likely want Blackberries, iPhones or the ilk, imho, and yet those who might want such a phone - those migrating from a non-smartphone, are alienated by the marketing. Just a guess.

It will have to be cheap

It's already possible to get PAYG phones with 800x480 screens for less than £100 (e.g. ZTE Blade / Crescent). I would hope that this phone which is pretty weedy spec wise would sit around £70 or less PAYG.
