Gotta say, I'm a big fan of the philosophy: little jobs for little processors, big jobs for big processors.

Well-designed task-specific gadgets are always going to be better than multi-function ones. I still use an iPod for music. A wristwatch to tell time. I want my cameras to shoot RAW, and I'll process on a desktop. Likewise I want my GPS to tell me where I am, and where I want to go. I'll create routes and adventures and write ride reports and geotag photos, etc. on the big computer.

I'd have less of an issue with the Montana trying to be a camera and cell phone and fax machine and whatever other functions they're trying to stuff in there if they could just get the basics down cold; no crashes, no bugs.
