    What makes a phone a phone, software or hardware?... or magic?!

    Would love to replace my Hero&iPad with a 7-9" smartphone; seems the only realistic option is the Samsung Galaxy Tab7", but why?

    What stops the SGT8.9 or HTC Flyer doing phone calls & SMS? Surely it's not hardware, as both use the 3G network. And if it's software couldn't the 'phone' app not be carried over from other products in either manufacturers range that run the same OS versions(or 'lesser') on similar hardware, albeit littler screens?

    Would love, and would pay
