I'm all about how many features a product has when it comes to consumer products. I want the most out of anything.So what this topic is going to be about is showing what your best gadget can do. Show a picture of the gadget and list it's every feature. When I say gadget, I mean MP3 players, PMPs, PDA's, phones, whatever. Just no dildos please.

Ok let me introduced what lead me to make this thread:

My Samsung P2

Posted Image


-MP3 player
-Create many custom playlist on player, in depth custom EQ
-Picture viewer
-Can crop, zoom and display photos as a background
-Video
-Add a bookmark, change the EQ, change play speed, change video size (zoom)
-FM radio
- You can record and save as MP3
-Datacasts
-Bluetooth
-Stereo headset
-File transfer
-Mobile Phone, you can connect with your phone and can make and recieve calls through the player via the mic on the player and the headphones
-Custom Main menu styles
-Change the icons and font
-Lock (password protected)
-Text reader (With multiple reading paper themes)
-Dictionary
-Games
-Calender
-Calculator
-address Book
-World Clock
- Voice Recorder


The P2 is an alternative to the ITouch. The only feature the ITouch has the P2 doesnt is the WiFi browser.
I love this thing.

No need to repost, but I have to agree with the awesomeness of the PSP. It can do pretty much anything, as long as you know how to get it to do such things. I have been out of that loop for a while, but even then it had the emulators, firmware emulation and pirate-able games.

My favorite gadget I have is probably my iPhone. :D You guys all know what an iPhone is unless you've been locked in a closet with nothing but food and a crapper. It rules and I will soon be upgrading to the iPhone 3G, my friend has the 3G and it beats the shit out of my old one! :wacko:

Haha! ::points at Tornado13 and laughs:: The NSA can listen in on your phone calls. In all seriousness, though. I would never get an AT&T phone for the simple fact that they are in bed with the NSA (which is a useless entity). I personally hate Apple, but the iPhone is a neat device.

You do realize that this was pretty much all cell phone users, not just AT&T, right? We probably shouldn't get into that, though.

Archos 605 WiFi -

800x480 Touchscreen - this is honestly the best touch screen I've ever used
4gb of memory - May not seem like much, but it has an SD/micro SD slot, can interface with any USB storage device
WiFi ( 802.11g ) - I don't use it, but it's pretty much a full featured Internet, as far as I know.
DVR - the device can act as a DVR
Built in speaker - better than the iPhone speakers I've heard
Kickstand for when you're watching videos
Supports more media formats than any (?) other device.

I don't want this to start any argument or anything, but AT&T is the worst company about allowing the NSA to listen in. My friend got into a fight on the phone, and the next day, AT&T called and asked him if he wanted to press charges against the other guy...that isn't right. I am not basing my knowledge on that occurence, though. I did a 10 page research paper on "questioning technology" for my English 102 class, and much of it was centered around cell phones and the NSA.

So as to not have a useless post: I have a Motorola Q9c:
Phone
GPS
Internet
Ability to run emulators
Music
Videos
Bluetooth
Etc...I really don't feel like listing anymore haha

I dont see why companies who make PMP's dont included a camera in there products. So far the only two player's I've seen to have a camera is the Archos and some Olympics.

Am I the only person left in the world that wants their phone to just be a phone?
I have a crappy Nokia 1100, and the calculator, text messaging, and LED flashlight are the only extra features it has aside from being a phone.

I'm perfectly fine with having a device that does one thing, and does it well. You end up with a much more affordable device with greater battery life.

I also have the cruddy Nokia 1100. And its only features are a working phone , texting , and a calculator. But it does have a pretty good call reception, mic, and speaker so that's a plus.

You do have a point there Slug,
but for arguement's sake, I'm going to say the other side.

Although simple maybe better, it becomes boring quick. And you know, I would probably wouldnt get bored with my device if I had a life. Meaning that because I dont work and I have alot of time on my hands, I would see why someone who works would go with just the essencials.

Either way, I love having a device in my pocket that can do many things. The thing's only a centimeter thick and it has a dictionary, naming just one of the features.

I'm betting that you either a) don't have the whole story :D misinterpreted something that was said and/or c) are lying. The other guy probably wanted to press charges or some shit and AT&T got wind of it that way. I'm not saying that they don't monitor it, but I seriously doubt that they analyzed it that fast.

Probably, but 3G support is not available on the 605. Pricing is varied depending on which model you want.

I also have a PSP, and it can do all these things, except the hacked features, and I am quite pleased. I am now going to sell my iPod nano, because my PSP does everything the iPod does. I don't see why people would rather go out, spend three or four hundred dollars on an iPod Touch, (I think that's how much they are) when you can buy a PSP for about 150 dollars, spend about 80-100 dollars on the software to make it hold music and everthing, and a memory stick. You save about 100 dollars depending on how much you bought the iPod for, and it does everything the iPod does. Plus, you can buy kick-ass games, and movies that you don't have to waste memory space for.

A) you could be right, I only know what he told me B) there was nothing to misinterpret C) What would I have to gain from lying about it? He didn't go into any detail about the story other than what I already stated. That doesn't really matter, though, in the overall picture. If you do the research, you will find that AT&T is the biggest cellphone cohort of the NSA. If you want to continue to question everything I have to say, feel free to pm me. I am not here to argue. I jokingly pointed out a simple truth, and it should have never gone past that point.

I do have to side with you on this one. The old Nokia 3310 I have is 8 years old now, but still works without a hint of errors or any other problems. Personally it's the hardest substance I know, right after the Original Gameboy. It fell down numerous of stairs, flew 8 meters down to the ground, and it still works as on day one.
