Samurai that video is hilarious. man awesome.

I would have to go with wearability with samurai. I like smaller phones which can fit in the pocket easily and aren't too heavy.

I don't care much of features. It should have decent battery life as well.

My previous phones have been based on wearability. I had the nokia 3310, nokia 3100, now have the nokia 6230i which is again one of the smaller nokia handsets with all features and decent battery life.

Planning on the E-50 now as it's again slim and not too big.

My dream phone would be the nokia 8310 which is not available. I always wanted this.

I love the Nokia N91 and also Sony Erickkson 810- either of this phone will replace my one year old N6600 very shortly

Thats an interesting question.
Don't know wether such a phone exists, but I would like to have all these features for less than 20K
1. 8GB HDD
2. Video camera, Still camera 2MP with some manual controls and a low noise CCD
3. media player with functionality of amarok
4. GPS system with auto navigation capability
5. 300-500MHz processor with full OS like Linux running
6. Total openness. No locking nonsense. I should be able to run any third party application, like I can do for Nokia, though I wish it had a better OS and processor.
7. WiFI, bluetooth and standard USB cable connectivity, don't give me those custom cables.

Some of the possible contenders:
Linux hacked onto GPS-enabled PDA/phone
Dual-mode GPS/Bluetooth phone runs Linux
Samsung ships Linux smartphone in China

The more I use my current phone, the Nokia E61, the more I am pleased to having made the right decision. Important features to last me the next 3 years at least included

1. No Camera. (As a corporate user, camera phones created problems)
2. Wide screen (320x240 pixels).
3. Ability to browse non-wap sites (One of the best mobile browsers I have seen to date)
4. Good Battery life (2-3 days with regular use).
5. WiFi, 3G and quad-band support.
6. Third Party application support. (This runs the Symbian OS).
7. Good speaker phone.
8. Support for corporate mail. (blackberry client, exchange client, etc)


The bonus features that I didn't know about and make full use of was the voice recognition. No voice training required. It reads English :-)


I also find the phone fitting into my shirt pocket as well as my jean pocket without any issues.

However, what I anticipate in the future is a separation of SIM card from the phone device itself. So my dream phone will perhaps be embedded in my watch powered by fuel cells perhaps. It will be able to pair with any device with the telephony software to actually make a voice or data connection. So when I sit in front of my PC, I should be able to use the PC to make the calls. When I get into my car, I should be able to make the call using the car's communications system. There can be many more possibilities but I will restrict myself to these for the moment.


Cheers
Sharath

Nokia 8310, man that was one hot phone!

Ishan, a friend still uses the 6310i. And this is after going through the absolute latest from Samsung, Motorola, and Nokia.

Maybe one day in the future Nokia will re-launch a limited run of the "classic" phones... 3310, 8250, 8310, 6310 etc. There's certainly a small market for it right now, and methinks it'll grow. Or is it wishful thinking?

Though i hate clamshells personally, Samurai has the point. The mobile has to be compact enough but at the same time performing the smartphone deeds...
@Samurai, something like Nokia N76!? except for the dimensions and maybe looks(subjective)

For me, Nokia N80 was a turn-on but the weight factor put me off... i like sliders that are designed just the right way with smartphone feel...

My dream phone should have the following:
1) Slider format, 64K/256K doesnt matter in small screens
2) Quad-Band, EDGE, 3G
3) Wi-Fi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support
4) MP3 player
5) 2MP camera with auto-focus
6) preferably smartphone in Linux

And am still waiting for such a mobile..

2) Length: < 90mm | Width < 40mm | Height < 15mm
3) Should be a smartphone, have good camera.
4) HTML browsing, GPS, MP3 player, Outlook synced phonebook, MP3 ringtones.
5) Microsoft VPN, Microsoft Office (Outlook, Word), PDF reader, Gmail reader
6) WiFi, Bluetooth, Edge (also 3G when service becomes available)
7) Big screen, say 32x70mm screen, landscape mode for browsing, photos, etc. The external screen can be very small just showing essential info like incoming caller id.

As you see I am not too demanding, this will probably happen within couple of years. There are phones that already have all these features but not in the form factor I want. But in future I am going to continue picking phones that match my lifestyle rather than just features.

So, what would your dream mobile phone have and why?

Actually Viper even after using the latest from Nokia I would still like to go back to the 6310i, only if I could find a new one. No competition there the new phones simply don't match upto it.

Ahhhhh... memories! the 8250 ("walk on the blue side") is still my overall favorite. I still have it with me (5 years after I upgraded).
