    I'm curious, with the legion of Android tablet computers that will be releasing throughout 2010, how many people here would keep an android phone AND and android tablet? And how many would go back to a regular flip phone and just use the tablet?

    Or, even better, if a working version of skype comes out for android, how many would forgo the use of a phone at all and just use the android tablet?

    I'll keep my phone. No need for a tablet IMO.

    My Android's primary purpose is, and will be as a phone. I have no need to be more connected than I can be with an Android phone, and I could even live without that.

    With my Centro I crossed the line from carrying 2 devices (PDA and phone) to carrying 1 for personal use. I won't go back. ;)

    I do carry 2 phones, but one is a Blackberry for work.

    actually with google voice and an android phone all you need is wifi. My hero gets most of my time now, but I still have my rooted Behold 2 with no sim in it and I use it on wifi at home with no problems. Mostly let the kids play games on it and such, but I would imagine an android tablet could do this just as well. If you had wifi mostly wherever you go you could do away with a wireless carrier.

    The phone is enough for me, and this is coming from a guy who likes to be constantly connected to my email, internet, forums, usenet, etc. I get all that with my phone. A tablet would simply make the view a bit larger and the keyboard a bit simpler.

    My Dad just bought an iPad and my first question was "why?"

    Lol, is your dad one of those people with an apple logo branded on their leg or arm, and who won't be caught dead without their iWhatever strapped to their arm with an apple branded arm band in the gym?

    Phone is more convenient than a tablet.

    Dunno. He hasn't emailed me back, and it's not a big enough deal to pick up the phone :rolleyes:

    Nope my last 3 phones have been smart phones because I like being able to connect while on the move. If I need a computer to do something I will use that. The phone does everything I need it to when I'm out or just need a quick wiki answer and don't want to leave and run in on the computer.

    Could I strap said pad computer onto my hip? If so, I might consider it, but they don't look any more portable than a laptop.
