Not an answer to your query, but more a question of my own.
Isn't this hankering after one device that does everything misguided?
People have been talking of convergence for decades,
but as far as I can see it has got absolutely nowhere.
Will camera phones really take off?
The phone manufacturers are obviously desperate
to think of some reason why people should get new phones
but that doesn't mean it is a sensible option.
Whatever happened to Wap and GPRS?
It is interesting that the one undisputed success of the mobile phone
is the completely unheralded option of text messages.
Most inventions reach their ideal state after a relatively short time,
eg the bicycle, the car and even the computer.
Manufacturers have to pretend there is endless progress,
but it is mostly the equivalent of flashy car tail lights.
