I think there's incentive every time a user becomes as frustrated by the limitations of a device as they were originally attracted to the functionality, design and cost. I don't view consumers as static or stratified by intelligence according to a strict hierarchy of choices.
We all change our minds about the worth of our relative purchases. The device we've bought isn't confined to being the same device we were sold -- even if, at the time of purchase, we assumed we'd never bother to customize the experience it offered.
