As part of yesterday’s publication of the news that Etisalat is now offering a Galaxy Tab bundle, I said the following:
This humongous device – the Galaxy Tab – is what I need for my mobile office and entertainment needs. For telephony, I’ll get a non-smartphone with stellar voice/SMS capabilities (perhaps a Nokia C3?).
Before this, I had also written an article titled If you get a tablet, what would you need a smartphone for?.
The interesting thing at my end is that some time ago, I got tired of carrying two or more phones around. I simply decided that I would be a one-device person. I have since always “travelled light” – having only one device on me for all my voice/SMS/mobile office needs.
This morning, I got to thinking about it again and wondered whether or not I could become comfortable with having two devices on me at all times – which is what I would have to do if I picked up a Galaxy Tab.
I am still thinking about it.
How about you? Do you carry more than one phone around or are you an old-school dude like me who insists on one converged device?
