We're all walking around with these incredibly powerful devices in our pockets. Each device has mega-bytes upon mega-bytes of memory, lots of CPU power, beautiful screens, and the list just keeps going on. However, we always seem to find something that is missing or lacking in our beloved devices. I see a lot of posts where people are asking, why can't I get a device that does X or Y? Why are there no devices with Z built right in? So this is the question I bring to you today; I want to know what is the single biggest missing feature that you want to see added to your next Smartphone. It doesn't matter if your missing feature is hardware or software based, but it can only be one thing. Let us know what it is and why you want it. I'm interested in hearing what everyone thinks and wants in their future devices. Cool

My old Sony Dumbphone could transfer files with my Pocket PC over Bluetooth, and I could send SMS messages through it from the Pocket PC using third-party software, also over Bluetooth.

The Smartphone? Dial-up networking only.

Wait, these two devices have the same OS and they can't speak to each other? Stupid.

One thing I would like to see is for IE to support frames - so that I can access my corp webmail without having to use opera.

Frame support was added in AKU2 for Windows Mobile 5. Wink How's that for a wish come true! Laughing

Given that my phone CPU has a faster processor than my first desktop (by a factor of 10) I would expect it to work like a PC. All file types. Megabytes of storage??? Sorry, I expect Gigs by now. My next phone will have GPS in it, same with my wife and kids so I can be sure they are safe and I can locate them. They need to be thinner. It should fit into a pocket without causing me to change up to the next size pants. (I keep mine in a holster anyway.) They should come with some true access to push email. Paying $300 for a push license is absurd. I am beginning to expect them to have 3+ MP camera now.

I want it to look good. That is a feature I'm missing. I want it to be kewl and all shiny and really slim and sexy.

I have a 2125. It is awesome but it isn't KEWL. I don't long to look at it and I have no concern if it is scratched or not.



I'd like tweakability to be enhanced. Why do they put all those silly pictures that I don't use in ROM where I cant' delete them. What about all those CRAPPPY sounds...I'd like to be able to delete those and replace them with my own. Space is at such a premium and they fill the ROM up with CRAP.

Yes, I'd like the ROM crap factor to be lowered as a new feature and ability to delete crap ROM files.

How about bringing back Active Sync over IP. As I understand it, this feature was eliminated in AS 4.1.

What were they thinking? Mad Were they trying to force people onto push email?

I can"t believe we still don't have repeating reminders for missed calls and vmails.

The above would be followed closely be copy/paste functionality.

I want to have notes and tasks. I used to have a blackberry and found these features really useful. If i can add them to outlook, we should be able to sync them to our phones.
