I think the problem is that when people think of cellphone/pda combos,
they start thinking of form factor. Look at the Qualcomm PDQ -- Palm
III built in, nice integration with phone stuff, etc. Problem is, it's
a 1980's sized device because they tried to make it fit into a
"standard" phone form factor.

Give me a Palm V (or a RIM 957) with a headphone jack and some speed
dial buttons and I'd be happy.
