Some devices, a multipurpose approach cannot be taken due to the complexity that would greatly increase cost. In those cases, those at the peak of the unlaundered despecialization curve will choose lowest cost. That is the primary reason why general purpose devices win out over specialized ones, because even if the general purpose device costs more, buying specialized ones that do the jobs of the general purpose one usually will end up being more money spent in the long run. $400 tablet, that replaces a $150 iPod, $150 eReader, $130 portable game system, etc.
