    Ok.. I understand.

    @ Jimbo! You hit the nail right on the head. A telephone is for making telephone calls *PERIOD*
    I find it non-sensible that one would want it for anything other than that.

    But when I take my kids to the park, and they are playing on the playground equipment and I don't have a book to read, or a person to talk to, it sure is nice to pull out my phone and check my email, read facebook, or fire up a news app to see what is going on in the world. In addition, on the way back home, I can utilize the GPS functionality in the event that I am going somewhere I previously have not been.

    And WHAT'S so difficult in taking a magazine, or book with you?

    This, I think because I normally miss the loading screen( so fast but I like windows 8 for it's performance, very fast. IE10 is much better than IE9 IMO.

    It's not difficult to take either with me. It's just I don't always have those things with me. For example, lets say I am out with the family and my wife wants to get her haircut. Well, I might drop her off and then take the kids to play. While they are playing, I could be reading. Of course, I didn't realize that I would be doing this when I left the house, so I didn't bring a magazine or book. So, my phone provides that little bit of entertainment while I sit and wait.

    I don't see how any of that is "ugly." Quite functional, I think.
