The Perfect Cell Phone by Dvorak
Ever since I first heard about the cell phone being “the” device we’ll all use, I’ve always been sceptical. I’m not comfortable with the form factor for doing things other than making phone calls and, although I use it for Internet and texting, it isn’t easy. John Dvorak has ideas of what it would take to make a cell phone “the” device in an article in PC Mag.
I’d add one more thing — e-ink for the screen. As much as a cell phone could do, if you can’t see it, it’s useless.
