    Yo people, I'm asking for a suggestion.

    I was thinking to buy myself a NetPC. I spend a lot of time during the day out of house (because of uni) and I have lots of dead times that I could be using being online (through WI/FI), reading ebooks, watching videotutorials.

    I need something light to be carried around, yet powerful enough to have wi/fi connectivity, a decent way to access the internet (on a 2 inch screen of a cellphone it sucks), a decent battery and the capability to play multimedia files, like mp3, mp4, ebooks and stuff.

    My first option was a NetPC. Then I thought uhm... maybe with a few bucks more I can buy myself a fancy cellphone that does/has all I need.

    What do you think? Any cellphone good for me?

    THANKS

    pS:I'm from Europe (Italy).

    I'm getting an iPad to test it out. I have a netbook also, and it's not bad

    I would rather get a netbook. Though the screen on a netbook can be small, it beats looking at an even smaller smart phone screen... many netbooks are superlight weight too!

    The Ipad comes without the Flash Player that means you can't see the swf files embedded in webpages.

    if you ask me, I was really keen to get my hands on one because an Emarketer doesn't have to be seated in front of a desktop or carry around a bulky laptop if he's all about PPC and correspondence most of his day but now the absence of Flash player is a bad news and i'm double minded :D.
