Too Late For Disposable Phones

Hop-on recently got approval for their disposable phone, but is it too little too late (never mind all the little corporate problems they have)? Some analysts seems to think disposable phones will never be more than a niche market. I tend to agree, especially with US carriers getting more aggresive with prepaid. Once the costs come down significantly (less than $5-10) I can maybe see disposable phones given away as promotional items like phone cards today.
