I've been writing this blog article in my head for a while now so I thought I'd actually publish it!
When I ask people what their perfect device would be I always get the typical answer of something impossibly thin with near infinity battery life and every capability under the sun....
Obviously there are a lot of engineering challenges that prevent that device from being built. Instead I thought it would be fascinating to take the best bits from various devices and create your own ultimate device.
Essentially some pick 'n' mix engineering 🙂
So to kick things off here is my perfect device:
|Keyboard||QWERTY - The Treo 750 keyboard - still for me the benchmark on QWERTY keyboarded devices.|
|Screen||The Motorola Q9h screen - IMHO the best screen for use in daylight/sunny places|
|Memory||128MB (or more)|
|Processor||HTC TyTN 2|
|GPS||AGPS from the HTC Touch Cruise|
|Hardware Buttons||Mute Switch from the Treo 750 |
Dedicated Camera Button
An OK Button
A Start Key
Scroll wheel from the Samsung Blackjack (or i600)
|Speakerphone||Motorola Q9h - An often forgotten feature but one I use a lot for conference calls|
|Camera||3 megapixel - from the HTC Touch Cruise|
|Form Factor||HTC Excalibur|
|Data capability||3G HSDPA 7.2 - WiFi a must|
My perfect device would be a mix of the Treo 750, Motorola Q9h, TyTn 2, HTC Touch Cruise, Samsung i600 in the form factor of the HTC Excalibur.
Of course if some kind manufacturer wants to build this I'd be very happy 🙂
What is your ultimate pick 'n' mix device ?
