Entelligence: Here’s what I want in my next phone
By my last count, I regularly carry as many as five different devices in my bag, with lots of overlapping functions. But I seldom want to carry more than two, and one of those is always going to be a phone. As good as today’s phones are, however, I’m still left wanting. I use of a lot of different phones in the course of my work and and while the perfect device still doesn’t exist for me, we’re getting very close. Here’s what I’d like to see in my next phone — and I’d like it this year, please.First, the table stakes. It’s got have a great voice capability — I want to make crystal clear calls and never drop them. It’s also go to have perfect contact and calendar features, a modern web browser, and an email client optimized for both Exchange and Gmail. Of course, a robust set of third party applications are a must, including a good RSS reader that syncs to Google Reader and a great version of Tetris.
