I HATE CELLPHONES

At least, the current offerings.

I hate phones that want to be anything more than a phone, honestly. I need to get a new one, badly, and I'm absolutely hating the options. I want long battery life, light, easy to read screen, flip-phone, and a slim callerid/digital clock on the outside. And sure, one of my big hates is just the current user interface--crappy, crappy, crappy. But you're not going to make a cellphone with a better optical zoom than the camera I'm already carrying around, so I don't need that shit. And I don't have _any_ interest watching video. And I don't really want to listen to music on it. And...

I can see the bonus to having actual videophones, though that's still going to be a hellish culture shock when it hits mainstream... but I don't want to pay for it.
