i haven't asked anyone yet, but since i haven't read my own idea here
yet, i present it now:

I would like to have some modular aproach. The phone should be of two
parts, the wwan-link and the handset.

The wwan-link should be really small and have long standby-time. It wold
be not much more than the modem, a really small screen, minimal input
capacities (may it be something around 3 buttons, or/and the little
screen be touchable), an loud speaker(noise generator) for call
indication, microphone and an usb-port and bluetooth-chip for
connectivity to handset.
The Handset has a nice display with computing power behind it, nice
Speakers, gps, wlan, various sensors (proximity, ambient light, rotation
and acceleration, magnetic compass, pressure and humidity,...) and a camera.

Usage: The small uplink can be used to have some kind of emergency phone
for occasions, where you don't want to bring such a big smartphone with
you. You can make a (bad) call with the  call-indication speaker, maybe
you have a bluetooth-headset with you, the phone shows incomming sms,
maybe even emails and such, is able to remind you and show you your
calendar. So if something important happens, you are informed, and
(only) able to call back.
If you have some kind of bag with you, you can pull out the handset and
make comfortably calls, input new contacts, appointments and so on, surf
the net and do all a modern smartphone can.
Maybe the uplink should be able to be coupled nicely with the handset,
if you decide to take that in your pockets...

Just some kind of vision from me, but i fear something like that is not
so easy to get to a reasonable price?
further plus would be that you can easily do different modems for
different regions and technologies, so this aproach would be exportable
to the whole world...
The handset-part may be replaced by some kind of pda/tablett/computer
with bluetooth and a bluetooth headset, as low budget-solution for
people that have already some mobile bluetooth-capable device

kind regards,
