Wireless in Europe and US
Instead of traveling with a 10 lb laptop computer (.8 stone) (4.2 kilos)- i was wondering if there is a smaller device that can receive email messages as well as send email messages as well as connect to the internet .

I've been a Nokia user all my life so not much of a learning curve was needed. It is mildly different though since it makes use of the "Symbian" operating system. The only drawback is the phone is not as "zippy" as the phones which don't have an OS. The good part is there are a lot of useful add-on programs available for download.
