Simple - iphones sell like "hotcakes", not like "can openers". They're consumables. They are used for many more purposes, and so more easily broken, so in that sense much more "consumable". But also new phones keep coming out with new features, making the old phone insufficient for your "needs". A dedicated e-reader already does everything it's expected to do. I wonder how many users with Wifi e-readers even use the wifi?
