Phone Computer

It doesn't exist yet but it has to come at some point.  A computer with the look and feel of a phone. The advantage is all you need is a hotspot or a wireless module and then with IM you can call anyone, anywhere without any additional charges, plus you can do every thing else -- built in camera, gps, play music, play videos/movies, plus browsing capability...it's a computer after all.   

Current phone technologies would be great if they didn't charge you for phone calls but every month that bill keeps climbing.  They charge you $20 for the wireless service, $20 if you want voicemail and call display, $20 for the internet access, $20 to access email, plus charges for being over your minutes, charges for long distance...all that should be simplified.

It's gotta come though, with computers becoming smaller and smaller, it's just a matter of time until I can have my list of IM contacts that I can "message" by text, voice or video no matter where they are in the world and no matter where I am.
