If you're never out of range of wifi, grab a color Nook and root it.
Much nicer and cheaper ($250) than a smartphone.  Android runs great on
it, you can watch movies on it, play angry birds, whatever you might use
a smartphone for (except making calls).

I saw one (a rooted color nook) recently and wanted one even though I
have no use for it (I already have an android smartphone).
