JayT, I think the new Nokia Windows Mobile device has a rockered screen. You should check it out. Of course, like I've said, we all need devices with "float" so they won't sink in the snow and get ruined.
I keep a clip-on watch, along with my pass and a whistle tethered to my pants on a retractable leash. Let's me check the time without waiting until I hit the lift or pulling out my phone, plus the whistle may come in handy if I need to get some girl's attention.
