Laptops going the way of the PC

Looks like the laptops days are numbered. From The Economist:

Sprint Nextel, America's third-biggest mobile-phone operator, unveiled an alliance with Clearwire, an internet service provider, to create a network based on WiMax, a technology that delivers fast wireless-internet access. Other companies, including Google, Intel and Time Warner, are investing in the venture. The deal may allow Spring Nextel to steal a march on AT&T and Verizon Wireless. Its larger rivals are backing a different wireless technology that will not be ready for two years.

It just makes me think, what is the point in carrying around a lunky laptop when your phone now has the capability to do everything that your laptop does?

The laptops days are numbered...
