Will touchscreen/smart phones start replacing PC?

I'm supposed to be getting the kyocera zio in the next couple of weeks and I was looking at the features of it and some other touch screens and made me wonder, with all the kinds of apps and things that can be done on smartphones will they soon replace laptops and possibly desktops amongst some people? A few friends of mine who used to have laptops with them all the time now leave them at home and instead do a lot of their daily things on their phones instead. Smartphones won't replace pcs for obvious reasons (such as gaming), but for other "daily" uses that we would usually use pcs for you think it's possible?

fuck no, cause there will be something to replace them! and since PC will last longer cause of that, it's safe!

I hate smart phones with a passion, they maybe smart, but you're not for buying one and the phone rates for them make you poorer than shit! As soon as they started making people pay for sending texts and nobody said shit and just accepted it, that's when you became the slaves to the phone! their bullshit on bandwidth, 1 byte is a character! are they trying to tell me that people text more than they do msging people though things like MSN and downloading movies and whatever! I FUCKING DOUBT IT!

All they saw was it was being used for free instead of using minutes on the phone and raking up the bill and had to find someway to make money off of it!

I don't hate the phones, I think they're neat, but it's just the damn companies!
I'm cheap and there is no way I'm paying 50 dollars a month at least for a smart phone and I'm not buying one without a plan at their stupid outrageous prices! 800 bucks my ass! If it had a bluray player than maybe! You pay less for a computer!

I have more ranting, but I'm going to stop! I might give myself a heart attack!

and I got a iphone 3GS for free! no way I'm signing up with anybody, since the only neat thing about this thing is the apps, I just hook it up to my wifi and pay 10000 dollars for shitty apps that NOBODY will use after 1 hour.

I love when people point to me and say UBER NERD because I'm on my pc at home. But when I point out that they actually carry their phone everywhere with them and are on facebook and the internet all the time on the phone, you know, as opposed to me only being on the net WHEN HOME, they get confused.

Also I thought it was well established that PC was dead long ago. You cant buy them. Everyones playing Halo on their on their phones.

I'd never get a phone like that. A phone is for ringing people, and for taking pictures of yourself in the mirror. I've had my phone for about 4 years and it works just as fine as ever. If I need to work, I stay inside and do it on the computer.
