    ust like the title suggests, I am a consumer, and I'm ready to buy a cellphone, gps, pda. But because of the overlap between all 3 devices I'm not sure what to get. I also relies not all products are created equal. Some gps units, even at 1000 dollars, can have horrible performance. Some phone have horrible reception. I could get a pda with gps built-in. But for about the same price I could get a tungsten, and use a 100 gps unit with a hack cord to use the devices together. That not considering gps / cell phones. Or those odd cellphone / pda.

    I have a few goals.
    * Very good signal (gsm?)
    * Low Profile
    * Flip Phone
    * Blue tooth (if possible)
    * long battery life
    * What cellnetwork should I use? Who has a good servos deal, and what about cheap internet access through bluetooth and or cellphone browsing.

    * fast
    *easy to use
    * feature rich
    * decent size display
    * accurate
    * details maps, side streets, extra
    * not dependent on home pc. (I have a mac)

    * blue tooth
    * mac compatible

    Any suggestions, recommendations, warnings would be appreciated.

    Anything Sony Ericsson as far as cell phones go.

    Tell us a budget?

    A P910 would loop the phone and PDA together nicely

    oh, TMobile for coverage, it varies where you are though.
