The functionality I want is "being able to carry Wikipedia and Google Maps in my trouser pocket". Your ultrabook doesn't even appear on the radar.

On the radar

I knew ultrabooks were supposed to be thin, but I didn't know they had stealth capabilities!

For wikipedia and maps one does not need a smart phone. I have relatively dumb phone with a tiny (less than 2 inch), but readable screen. It runs Java and Google has good clients for Mail and Maps. Opera Mini provides the rest. The phone lasts one week on a single charge with occasional mail/web usage and bluetooth data connections. The phone is lighter than most smart phones and does work when it is -20C (-4F) outside.

As a big bonus the complexity of software on the phone is much less than what is available on a typical smartphone so I can trust it more.

Also a smartphone

In case you did not notice: what you are carrying around is called a smartphone. Yes, even primitive Symbian devices were smartphones. They are not defined by the big screens or the short battery life, but by having a general purpose OS with the ability to load user programs.

This[1] could become a reality. It also looks like some have tried[2] (not that I'd trust any of those as-is).
