There ^^, fixed it for you. If you've seen/used the Nokia N900 you'd know that
whatever Mayuresh asked for is already available on that phone. There used to be
a whole bunch of promising projects (besides maemo/meego) that were built around
that usage pattern but were way ahead of their time and since phones at time
were not as powerful as they are now, those were centred around PDAs and
handhelds which got replaced by either phones or netbooks.
It is quite sad actually.

Anyways, I am excited at the /possibility/ of Jolla and firefox OS
bringing back the market of hackable handhelds ...which can also make calls.
