My Smartphone/PDA Uses

My primary need is a mobile office device, not a “gaming device,” a “social networking device,” or a “media consumption device.”

  • Address book, contact info.
  • Word processing to display and edit my To-Do list.
  • Secure app to hold passwords.
  • Other word processing docs and Notes.
  • Tethered modem support for notebook/desktop computers.
  • Text and picture messaging.
  • Read and edit reference docs.
  • Web surfing if screen is large enough.
