In Less Than Two Years, a Smartphone Could Be Your Only Computer

With each passing season, another wave of mobile devices is released that’s more capable and more powerful than the generation preceding it. We’re at the point where anyone armed with a current model smartphone or tablet is able to handle almost all of their at-home—and even at-work—tasks without needing anything else. We’re living proof: for the last two years, WIRED has been able to cover events like CES almost exclusively using our smartphones.

Overblown. Screen size isn't going to be more acceptable in the next 2 years. I need at least 13 inches to get actual hard core productivity

The only way t would work is if you docked your mobile and it then came onto a monitor.

There is other issues, the versatility is not there yet. Heck, theres some things i can't even do on a full fledged laptop.

I can see it happens.. even if a small screen smartphone, plugged in or wirelessly your mini HDMI to a big screen TV or monitor. Kaboom, here we go.

No thanks. I like a nice cheap smartphone since I'm carrying it around and risking dropping it, losing it, getting it stolen if I put it down in the wrong place, etc and not willing to pay anyone $700 to replace it (like a contract company would want...which is why I go prepay. $35/mo unlimited everything, great service).
