I have never been able to justify getting a smartphone because I simply don't have a need to check my emails every 12 minutes. So paying for that plus internet service for the computer doesn't make sense. I don't want to be doing all my internet stuff exclusively on a phone either, so cancelling the computer internet doesn't make sense. But on the other hand in addition to a regular cell phone, I carry around a palm pilot that has medical software/textbooks on it that I use for work. So having smart phone would allow me to downsize the number of devices I am carrying around. If there was some way I could stream the internet through my phone onto my computer (its a laptop) then it would make economic sense to have a smartphone. Is there anyway this can be done (without having to have a degree in computer science)?
