The Mobile Phone Deals Man

Hum… I still have to try out the iPhone in a real world situation. It sure looks good both as a phone and a PDA… but then again, how much of that is due to the Steve Distortion Effect?

Why can’t I get an AT&T Tilt with an
iPhone-size and resolution display?

I stopped toting my PDA. It has hand writing recognition, by I found it nearly impossible to take note quickly. Getting a tablet pc for Christmas. “SHOULD” be easier to take notes on, but the weight just bites.

I’m a computer technician, and I’ve been looking for a smartphone that I can enter notes into quickly and be able to sync up to the PC. So far I haven’t found any ‘good’ alternative to the Zire72 Silver that I’ve been using since forever. I now use graffiti faster than anyone I know typing on their smartphones.

For a cell phone I use a Motorola c139 GoPhone with a custom headset. Yeah I know.. gophone - woopie. But I get 10 hours of talk time on a charge and excellent reception (plus if it breaks - I take the sim chip out, throw the phone away, and grab another one off the shelf for $15.

Primitive for a comp tech I know, but it works well for me so far. If the Iphone has a factory stylus, double the battery life and decent note taking apps, I would convert…

Very good points. Another issue with these all-in-one tools is why pay for everything when you might only need a couple of its tools? Some company should have a Dell-like service in which you can customize the “phone", only containing the features you want.

No matter how many gadgets PDA’s can have, I still stay with my beloved smartphone. It’s quite small in size and functional enough to be perfect for me. What about the price? Oh well comfort is priceless ;)

I am not sure….I agree with the Author I think you need more then just a smart phone.

Wow! I felt like I was in back in a 1950s show where they talk about homes and cars of the future! You were so very wrong! We are talking less than a decade! Things change so fast and capabilities as we know are changing at amazing speeds. It is almost impossible to make accurate predictions for even 1 year in advance! Especially, when talking about what consumers will want/need! I do have to say though, your thoughts were sound for the time and I had similar ideals about phones and pda’s too. At the moment I would like a nice tablet/smartphone hybrid about 7 inches would suffice and would like two bluetooth headsets, one for stereo sound on the slopes that easily toggles between my phone and and my ski patrol FCC radio and one for daily use that has a simple screen to screen calls and possibly even send voice texts that is always in my pocket and/or can pop in/out of my tablet/smartphone. Am I asking for too much??? Let’s revisit this one next year! LOL When are screens can be rolled up and unfolded to big sizes!!! They will be here soon! But then again who knows!

I take it you have been either living under a rock, or this post is mega old (e.g. at least 5 years old).

I have not heard a T9 rant nor ’stylus’ rant in over 4 years because they are dead / dying now, capacitive touch screens have destroyed the resistive and the QWERTY the T9.

I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that very useful.
