Just wondering. I don't keep up on the speeds of the new cellphones.

I haven't had a landline in 5 years because of my cellphone, but I can't see it replacing my broadband any time soon.

Won't replace my broadband. Speeds are getting great but latency is still an issue, of course.

Phones are phones. They're not close to replacing the computer quite yet. There's a difference between 3", 22" and 55".

i dont get 3g coverage inside the house at all. sucks. i guess i could PDAnet it for work/email/browsing if i was really strapped for cash. but i like to download lots of other stuff too and that would not work with it.

4g is supposed to be comparable to broadband speed, but even then you're still tethering your entire home network to a cell phone. I don't like that idea at all.
