GeneralShould I buy my wife a smart phone? Pin

My wife desperately needs a new phone. Her phone was donated to her by father after hers died. She's up for a new phone from Verizon, but most of the non-smart phones they sell have ratings of 3 out of 5 or less. I like my Droid Incredible, so I thought about buying her a Droid or a WinPhone 7.

Pros: Up to date GPS without lugging around our out-of-date Garmin
She can check her e-mail for anything important without having to be at home.
She can stay occupied in the car when I'm driving and look up stuff for me (like when traveling out of town).*
The phones all have higher ratings than non-smart phones.

Cons: It's $30/month extra.
It's something else to distract her from other things she would rather do.

Anyone ventured in this direction before?

*Of course she could do this on my Android phone, but she doesn't use it enough to get used to it.
