Google phone/iPhone/et. al.

I just read about the release of the Google phone, which apparently is intended to get more people doing web searches, and therefore drive more ad sales for Google. I presume this means that these smart phones are becoming good enough to provide a reasonably satisfying browsing experience.

So, I'm going to try to reignite a discussion from some time back. Most PC users limit their usage to email, Web browsing and a few simple games and apps. With text messaging and the ability to browse, amongst other things - how soon will we see smart phones start to replace PCs for most frequently performed tasks, with the PC really being more of a 'central storage' for their data, along with a few critical applications (think of the way mainframes are used for large corporations vs. the 'distributed' systems that do most of the... er... lightweight... work).
