Science Week: Next gadget purchase

Today’s Science Week Question is “What’s the next gadget that you want to buy?

The next gadget I buy hasn’t been created yet. It’ll be when Nokia take the N95 and the N810 and merge them into one product.

This:

Nokia_N95

plus this:

nokia_n810

It will have:

  • Quad Band Phone
  • 5MP Camera with xenon flash
  • HSDPA 3G Data
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth
  • Stereo Bluetooth Audio
  • GPS
  • Touch Screen
  • Slide Out Keyboard
  • Run a variant of Linux
  • TV Out
  • Accelerometer
  • Massive Battery
  • Take massive memory cards
  • Offer full PDA functionality and sync with both desktop apps like Outlook and online apps like Goog Calendar
  • A music player designed for podcasts (remember last spot, bookmark, speedy seek within track)
  • VOIP
  • SIP
  • the same dimensions as the N810
  • A price tag of less than €400

I don’t ask for much really, do I? Actually, this device would make me the ultimate “mobile warrior”. The need for a laptop would almost disappear for a lot of my travel and I would have a swiss-army penknife of gadget functionality.
