The Perfect Mobile Device?

I often discuss with a colleague of mine what would be the PERFECT mobile device. He's a businessman and engineer and does a lot of travelling so I very much heed his thoughts on the subject. He just sent me a complete list of his required specs:

  • Quad band phone
  • Handsfree speakerphone
  • Touch screen
  • Long life battery and a light travel charger
  • Portrait and landscape capable screen
  • Windows Mobile Office
  • A keyboard that slides out from underneath
  • A keyboard of similar quality to a Blackberry
  • 1 GHz+ processor
  • 1 GB+ RAM
  • Plays MP3 files
  • Bluetooth and WiFi wireless capability
  • Infrared port
  • USB port
  • SD slot
  • 2 MegaPixel+ camera
  • Auto e-mail notification like a Blackberry
  • Unlimited data and no extra charge long distance package for a reasonable price (say $60 per month)
  • 120 grams or less in weight
  • All in a 10mm thick package with the screen the same size as the current Pocket PCs
