This is true, but I would not have a phone with everything. It would
drain too much power. I think as someone here suggested, optional
modules would be great. What if we had a WiFi module and a WiMax or 3G
module? This could be a SDIO card.

I think it is much to ask about, but it is a cool idea.

Optionally, they could make a GTA03w similar to GTA02 (with wifi),
except with quad band GSM, and make a GTA03g with 3G (and quad band
GSM) and without wifi.
There is so many options. We should not expect everything in one
phone, as this phone would be so difficult to make, drain so much
power, and be so expensive that we would never get it.

Just my thoughts
