Multifunction Mobile Devices: Prioritize Your Features
With multifunction mobile devices, you should prioritize the features you most want and need, then measure your list against the device under consideration. Typically, with multifunction mobile devices, you'll only get the basic features in each category (for example, as a cell phone the device will only make and receive calls and perhaps store a small phone list). If you want the advanced features sometimes found in a single-function device (for example, voice dialing in cell phones), you may need the single-function device.

If your wish list doesn't match the features of the multifunction mobile device you're considering, think about buying separate, single-function devices that better suit your needs.
