I think its more of the apple users just because calling it iOS doesnt give it a name but more of a code name

I like surfing on my S3 far more than on my Acer laptop..just feels more..organic?
More up close, more convenient and easier.
And flicking through verything within the grasp on the palm is kind of addictive

I love to have all-in-one cell phone, but I still need to have everything else.
I can't imagine having tablet instead of laptop, I still have digital camera for sightseeing, and recently bought GPS for sailing. I must admit, that I resigned from using MP3, but I've already missed it once. I think it's like that: All in one devices are great, when it's not crucial for them to work. When You absolutely have to know your position, or need to make great photos, or have to write important article, You will want to use dedicated device. The fact that many devices sales are dropping means, that people haven't really needed them, just wanted.
