The Cell Phone of Tomorrow (Literally)

Cell phones - I really don't care about what they do aside from voice and text messaging.

All those other "features" we find on our cell phones suck, or are really average. I'll be impressed when I can take great pictures and video on my decent form factor phone, use it as a GPS, and a portable media player. Right now, the picture quality isn't that good, and the video is terrible. Features like these make phones bigger, uglier, and more expensive. The last time I went into a Cingular store, it was impossible to get a phone that was just a phone. So, in lieu of that, I purchased a phone that was a lot more than a phone, and I don't use any of the other features. This phone was $400.

Oh, and does anyone who isn't making 100k a year ever use the internet on their phones?

My next cell phone is going to be a phone. It's going to have excellent battery life and it's going to be slim as hell. It's going to have great voice quality. It's not going to take pictures or video, and I won't be able to listen to my favorite songs on it. But it's going to be cheap.

It's called the MOTOFONE. Last I heard, it's being deployed in developing countries right now, and hopefully we'll be able to get them here in the states this year.
