Email to go

A lot of people I know have Smartphones and constant, 24/7 email and web access. As much as I love the internet, these devices and services have no appeal to me. Just about everywhere I go has a computer with a broadband connection within easy access. I get up, turn on my computer, go to work, sit in front of a bunch of computers all day with a remote desktop connection open to my home computer, go home, and then spend another half the night on average in front of my home computer. Except when sleeping, there are just a few hours each day when I'm not in front of a computer. I don't see why I'd really want or need more email than that.

I don't think the email part of my smartphone is the best feature, mainly because of the reasons you just stated. However it is nice to have my schedule, address book, and access to online maps/yellow pages whenever I may need them.

Yeah, maps are the thing I'd really want on the go. That could potentially be very helpful.
