Didn't we already see this?

Palm, makers of the eponymous "pilot", have a new product, the "folio" which they're describing as "the worlds first mobile companion", which may be factually incorrect.
If we cast our hindsight over the 1990's we'll spot Psion (inventors of the eponymous organiserII) and the Revo. I had a Revo, its still in a cupboard somewhere, and it really was a phone companion, it let me manage my contacts and do my email with a qwerty keyboard. Before ssh was so widespread I even used it as a telnet terminal and re-started more than one server from the pub, though to be honest that was as much because I could as because I needed to.

I know nothing, I'm not a fortune teller, and you'd be insane to think that I am. This disclaimer was cribbed from an email footer I once received. It is so ridiculous I had to have it for myself.
