Questions for discussion:

  • What are the main selling features for each phone?
  • Do you think the marketplace is crowded with too many choices for buyers or that there is room for more competitors?
  • Why are the sales of these products tied to 2 and 3 years service plans?
  • Could they be successfully sold without phone service carriers affiliation?
  • Are there other affiliates that could co-market these devices?
