You can't carry all of those items along with you, and still have the same convenience. You're not going to talk on your kindle, your not going to read on your iphone (well you can, but it's a very small screen for that), and you're not going to whip out your laptop as you stop at a traffic light or eat lunch at a diner between appointments. Well you can, but the convenience factor is gone in seconds.

You can talk on an iPad, using Google Voice and an earpiece. Basically obsoletes a phone when you carry it.

I'm going to guess you can do the same stuff on an android tablet, as well, but I can't speak from experience.

It's all in your point of view, really.

Watching videos not exactly the selling point of an iPad, or an iPhone. Sure they can do it, but it's a small screen.
Either way, it's possible. Hell, most everything I have is converted in one way or another to the format I need anyway, so I'm not sure what the complaint is?
I'm just glad I don't have to plug my $Anything into a Windows machine, on that note. Talk about limiting your choices.

To the systems programmer, users and applications serve only to provide a test load.
