This.

Word processor, spreadsheet, browser, email, and a few games probably
covers 99% of users.

On a phone, many want their facetwit applications, too.

My interest in a smart phone ends at navigation, camera, and caller ID.
Oh, and enough voice control to place calls.

I'd be tempted to switch to an android (I actually had the original
gphone), but the privacy, hacks, and whathaveyou stop me.

Security and privacy *are* what I'm buying when I pay extra for an iOS
device.
