> People keep saying this. I'd need a lot of convincing to believe that Android and ios and WebOS can realistically take the place of a desktop OS
with something like the Ubuntu/android combination, I see a good possibility of this happening for many people (not everyone by any means)
the PC didn't do everything that a minicomputer could do, let alone do it as fast, but it was easier to get going, and far cheaper (again making it far easier to get going with)
With the ability to use a keyboard with your phone, and use a random TV as a display, it becomes very convenient to use your phone for many of the things that a laptop can do. think of it as the next step from a netbook, but you don't sacrifice screen size when doing real work.
