Stacey of GigaOm has written what I wanted to say when I wrote the last SXSW mobile experience. (Not having a much of experience.) But I too noticed many people gathered around mobile phones and watching what ever they were being demoed, while I struggle to get my email.
"The folks attending this show are generally ahead of the computing trends in the general population, so while I don’t foresee folks dumping their notebooks in favor of smartphones, I do think people are more comfortable with letting their smartphone be their computer for a longer amount of time."
Well said Stacey, provided that AT&T let me.
