Do you remember the good old days when a mobile phone was just that, a mobile phone?My GE-1000 that was in my car back in 87, had nothing else but a handset attached to a speaker which was my handsfree as well. You couldn't buy a car phone unless you had handsfree.
That was $1300 installed. For a $150 more, I could get the GE-1500 that displayed, you won't believe this, the time on the handset .
With all these new gadgets ie: browser, camera,now video on demand and much more, these are nothing more than distractions. Gosh I can just imagine someone watching southpark while driving...
I think we are going too far with this technology. By doing so, we are slowly become dangerous to ourselves.
My 2 cents.

Meh... all I need in a cell phone is the ability to talk, text and browse the web.
