Anyone know of a netbook that has cell phone capability? I mean something where I can hookup a headset of some sort and make phone calls over a cellular plan with a major network like TMobile.

I want to get a smartphone, but I am also wanting to get a netbook, but it seems silly to lug both around. It'd seem like a netbook that could make and receive cellular calls would be great, I guess the netbook would have to be on all the time though.

I just visualized a person holding a netbook up to their head like a phone :D. – Wuffers Jun 18 '10 at 19:45
Haha there is actually a video like that where a guy is walking around yelling into an IPad. I would find it for you but I'm at work. – AaronLS Jul 2 '10 at 14:11

Too be honest all you need is internet on your netbook and then have a service like Skype or Google Voice enabling you to make calls with it

I'm not sure if there are any netbooks with built-in 3G, but you could achieve the same effect with a dongle

Update: you could take the Nokia Booklet 3G, though a dongle gives you much more freedom in what model you want

+1 since Skype/GVoice + an aircard could give me this, although this isn't as flexible or reliable as something like the Samsung Galaxy since with Skype+aircard you would be completely reliant on having a dat connection through wifi or 3g available, instead of being able to fall back on a standard voice only cell network. – AaronLS Jul 26 '11 at 21:15

Samsung Galaxy is the closest thing I've found to this in one package.
