Anyway I heard something about this new Tegra cpu being the brains in Nintendo's next hand held gizmo. So I really do not need a phone to play some games.... These smart phones are cool and all but I have a less then $200 Samsung phone that slides open with a keyboard and can do the net and all that... I use it to download ringtones and occasionally check a movie time. I don't think a 600-800$ phone would be a good investment for me, about the only thing I would add to my phone is GPS for driving but if I have an address I can wing it with mapquest.
I guess what I am saying is that I refuse to spend more then $200 on a phone and it better work best as a phone first then if the other functions work good great, but if it cost more then that, my expectations jump up too. Can a laptop AND a cheaper Cell phone to do all the things this phone can do?
Might also add that my phone has no contract so I paid a bit more for it then if I had say a 2 year contract (probably would have been close to free)

Yeah, I thought about that too. But Apple owns PA Semi so I'm not quite sure what to think!
If this is a full blown pc tablet with a touch screen, that can run productivity apps, is multi-media capabilities, and has built in Wi-Fi as well as an unlocked 3G/4G phone, I would gladly pay $500.00 for such a device.

Not hot at all! and he is gesturing how big his nose will grow as he continues to spew his lies about how Macs have the "best" technology to massage Jobs ego and sell more of those 4 years old 9400 and 9600 graphics chips to them.
it'd need to be no more than 1cm thick with an 8"+ screen (preferably at greater than 480p resolution), and it'd need to have at least 32gb of space, 5hr hr active battery (non-wifi), 10hr+ screenless-battery, play h.264 and divx movies, and it'd need a full-featured browser that includes Flash support (Hulu, in other words). I'd also want bluetooth, Keyboard pairing (via bluetooth would be cool) and word processing applications.
GImme all three of those and I'd easily drop 299-399 on it. I'd pay 50 bucks extra if it had cordless charging, too. I'd pay another 50 dollars if it had docking (And I'd drop another 100 on a docking station) so that I could literally use it as a pick-up-and-go PC/Mobility crossover. drop it in my station at home with a 24" monitor and full setup, and then pick it up and go for when I'm on the move. And, bluetooth folding boards for when I'm at a coffee shop.
It's ambitious, but give me taht and you've literally got the device of the century.
