Now with news about a color screen photo iPod and also countless other mobile technologies merging onto all sorts of devices I'd like opinions about the ultimate all in one device. 1st of all, as of our technology right now, I personally despise when companies put things in other things that don't belong. I don't want a crappy camera on a phone, I don't want to play 32-128 megabits of mp3s on my PDA, nor do i want to view calendar dates on my iPod. Obviously there are differing opinions of my statements... and one negative side to all this is that if i want all these things done well i'd need a camera, an iPod, a PDA and a phone. If you get any of those individual devices, they do there job very well, however now you can pretty much mix and match any 2 of those devices, and something like that exists but it doesn't do the job very well. 2nd topic is THE FUTURE... Now if we have the technology to combine all of these devices very very effectively without making them all crappy then I think that would be one of the largest technology revolutions in history. The next paragraphs are speculation using imaginative technology: Now must people alive today carry around there phone wherever the go, so lets start with that. Now, i think some phones can play music, but if they could store 4 gigs of it while retaining its size how amazing would that be? Then i wouldn't have to carry my phone and ipod all around with me. Now throw in pda functions... it gets a little fishy... obviously a color and larger screen is a must now. Also, touch screen capabilities. i also don't think a keyboard is needed personally... if anyone has written with some of the current PDA's it recognizes pretty well, at least my handwriting Now..one of my most despised add-ons... a camera. I personally would not use a camera on a multimedia device unless it took really really nice pictures. I suppose i'd draw the line at about the quality of the 2 mp canon elphs. To wrap things up. If we do get the technology to make a product such as this would you buy it? How big would it have to be? would it need input devices on both sides? ie: screen, scroll wheel and number pad. My guess is eventually, some day we will have all the technology out there to do all this in a small device, i mean we could now but the device would probably be hideous. My question is: Where do you draw the line on?
