Phones versus tablets

I don’t know about you, but my smart phone was the love of my life. I used it for everything, checking in on four square, uploading photos to Facebook, tweeting and occasionally even making a call.

Recently however I fell a little out of love with my phone.

I invested in the latest iPad with all the add ons, and since then it has pretty much replaced both my phone AND my laptop.

My iPad is quicker, the keyboard is bigger and I have no idea how people struggle to type in the normal way, I find it really easy…It has enough space for all my apps and some, and I love it.

So, now I only use my phone for three things:

* phone calls
* texting
* tethering my iPad

When I look back at my mobile phone contract I am not surprised to see that I am not using all that I pay for within my contract package. The only thing I would really say I get close to is the data part of the deal, but even then I generally only hit half the allowance now!

So, if I were a mobile phone company, I might have to look at what I was offering and see how I can adapt to suit my customers needs. I am seriously considering going back to PAYG to save on the monthly bill, certainly I will be doing that for my teenage kids who never use the calls, just use text and twitter, and jump onto to the wifi when they are at home, so twitter DM to their friends is free.

iPads for Christmas with the money I save and I reckon we will all be happy.

As I ask around, it appears I am not alone in this thought process. My friends are all considering the same… They take advantage of free evening calls, use the office landline during the day and the office wifi to tweet and mobile phones are just for emergencies once again.

Hmmm.

Let me know your thoughts on this one, the debate is well and truly open… I Could discover it is just me!

Thanks.
