    I may use my pc a little less for browsing the internet after I purchased a smartphone... But my time browsing the internet on my smartphone doesn't even come close to my browsing time on my PC. We are still a few years off from where a smartphone can take the place of a computer.

    When I first got my iphone I use to use the internet on my iphone like Crazy!!!

    But eventually the cool feeling of being an iphone owner war off and I came back to reality and realize that this iphone will never replace me using my computer to go on the internet.

    While having internet on my iphone has been very convenient for me espcially in times when wifi is not available, it still has a small screen and cannot do things as smoothly as my pc can. I especially miss having flash on my phone ;(

    But yeah I could spend hours and hours without break, maybe even days doing something on a computer especially now that webcams are a standard in most computers.

    But with an iphone you can only spend about an 30 minutes to 1 hour and a half before you start getting bored out of your mine staring at a small screen.

    But with the way technology is evolving so fast I would give it 5-10 more years before phones start really competing to take the place of actual computers to browse the internet. The reason it might take longer for it to replace our regular computers is because the way these cell phone carriers are acting with their smartpone data plan packages. Trying to limit how much data a person can use while all this nice technology is out there should be considered outrage.

    The more technology evolves the more data people will use. Why build great phones only to limit their potential over greed?

    But
    Girls are like phones. They like to be held, and talked too but if you press the wrong button you'll get disconnected!!!

    Mostly from my laptop. I use my phone to browse when I don't have access to my laptop or if it's just something quick.

    I use my PC about 90% of the time. I only use my PRE if I need to get online for something.
