I'm searching for my dream mobile device. Ideas?

Posted 24 May 2012 - 10:01 AM

Hello, I'm in search of a mobile device that can assist me with a few tasks. Perhaps you might know of such a device. Here are my minimum requirements.

1. OLED or AMOLED screen. I might be using this in full sunlight and
I don't want TFT washout.

2. 5 megapixel rearward facing camera. I don't care about front facing cameras.

3. Stylus compatible resistive touch screen. I don't care about multi-touch.

4. Bluetooth. I'd like to interface a bluetooth keyboard with this device.

5. Internal mic for VOIP calls.

6. Screen size from 4 to 5"

It must not be a phone, and also not an Apple product.

The Samsung Galaxy 4.0 was looking pretty good to me. Samsung's webpage didn't list stats for its screen type, touch screen type, camera resolution, mic arrangement or bluetooth capabilities. I suspect the screen is TFT. Regardless due to lack of information, that is a potential sale lost.

Does such a device exist?

(this is my first post by the way, hello everyone!)

But in a few years you'll be able to breed one. You're looking for the labrashepadoodle of the mobile world.

My dream device must have facial detection so when it see's me walk into range it start making me pancakes :)

But honestly why can it not be a phone? Nor apple product? Just preference? Cause well you could always buy the phone and just not use the phone section of it, or get a tablet in that case thats not 3g...

Sorry about the specs thing. I didn't see the tiny "specs" text at the top right (at first). It seems like the Galaxy Note is the closest device to my requirements. But its a phone. XD

The components that enable a device to connect to the phone network increase the price of the device. A "mobile device" goes for around 200, but an equivalent phone seems to go for 450. A tablet is not an option because it needs to fit in my pocket.

Solution #1: Sew yourself a bigger pocket (That's realistic right?)

umm not to sure what to suggest to ya, they don't make too many smart devices unless it has a phone with it, bit ridiculous but I don't know if there would be a market for it right?

Maybe a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE for Verizon... but that's only after a cursory glance through the bing-verse...

you want a thing that does not exist. and the radio components that make it a 'phone' are NOT what makes it expensive.

Hmm.. you could make your own tablet carrying purse.

Or invest in a scotte vest.

It looks like an unlocked Galaxy Note is the closest I'm going to get. Thank you for all of the help and replies. :)
