David Pogue looks at the latest batch of convergent devices (PDA/phones): Cellphones, and Then Some: The Latest High-Tech Mergers

My wireless service contract with AT&T is up and I'd like to get a new phone/pda hybrid, but nothing seems all that great. The Sidekick is close, but the voice part of the plan is pathetic and it doesn't sync with the computer, one has to upload data to a website to make it available on the Sidekick. Close, but not quite. All the other devices are too big and more expensive than I'm willing to spend. Except for the Sony Ericsson T68i, which works with iSync. But that would mean switching to T-Mobile (the company formerly known as Voicestream), getting a new phone number and a plan that isn't as good as what AT&T is currently offering.
