Phone>laptop cause you can use a phone anywhere... laptops you need wifi, or a plan with your phone company...
You can use a 12" fanless netbook anywhere too. And you don't need wifi or a plan with your phone company. And it's more than just a browser, it can run apps and (if you know any basic stuff about linux) pretty much anything you want. It's even open source
So like not even iTunes or Microsoft Word or any other stuff like that isn't on there... Just...the internet. Thats Crap. I mean sure it's handy for my mum and sisters and girlfriend. But Me and my Dad, Nu uh.
Yeah... But internet on phones is shit... Unless you have an iphone or something.
Sorry... I get caught up in my webOS all the time... the webOS can do anything but run games, but you can get games from the app store so it's good... I can see any page I want to... (webOS is for Palm phones btw)
