Well I would certainly miss my chromebook- which ties nicely in with my android phone.

Hmm that Galaxy tab looks a little outdated already with dual 1.0 ghz android 4.0 ICS and USB 2.0. And might not actually function as a cell phone despite its connectivity. I'd look at the phones.

I don't know what any of that first part means, but hopefully it will be powerful enough to run tapatalk and brewer's friend, maybe do attenuation calculations on occasion. 

I have a phone that I make about 8 calls a year on, so it's not vital if it won't make calls.

After looking at phablets, I've concluded that for me they're too big for a phone and too small for a tablet.

Could not agree more. I like to carry more than my phone in my pocket.

I saw one of these the other day.  I can't imagine where I'd put it.  I mean other than my purse. ;)

Just what I'd expect from a bunch of old farts. ;D

I'm saving up for google glass or maybe sixth sense. The only reason any piece of electronics has to be as big as it is today is the interface. Miniaturize that and you can carry effectively infinite information and processing power in your pocket and still have room for your keys, wallet, and a bottle of beer.
