|Here's one anecdotal case (mine):|
My main computing platform is a 7 year old Dell Latitude (plan to replace with a higher performance Ultrabook late 2012/2013).
I also have a Blackberry Curve, Asus Eee netbook and an iPad 2 Wi-Fi+3G). Oh yeah and a Kindle (monochrome) for reading.
When I take road trips in the motorhome I take the Blackberry, the netbook, the Kindle and the iPad 2. The Blackberry keeps me connected to phone & email all the time and can use it in a pinch to get addresses, phone numbers, etc. The netbook serves as a real computer (with USB ports and a keyboard). The iPad is a motoring device. Since I can connect via 3G, I can run campground, sewer dumps, weather, real time radar apps on the fly from the passenger seat. Oh yeah, I also have a Garmin GPS on the dash.
Will I ever replace the Blackberry with an iPhone or Android with a touch screen. Not sure. I know for now, I don't want to lose the physical keyboard
Don't know about market trends, but that's my story.
