Pretty much the same, although I do wear a watch some of the time and use a better digital camera when I'm out hiking or something along those lines.

It's definitely replaced my old Zune MP3 player.
I use it to complement my Kindle (Amazon syncs the last page read between the Kindle and Android app).
It's definitely starting to replace my Sirius radio
It's starting to replace paper time sheets
I now leave my handheld GPS at home while hiking. My phone is capable of downloading offline topo & aerial maps, which makes it a better GPS unit than the handheld.

I can't fathom not wearing watch. So much easier than a phone. And when you're bored you can press the button on its side and pretend it's a laser like in Goldeneye.

Watch and that's the only this its ever going to replace. I don't like the idea of putting all my eggs in one basket when it comes to devices.

I took a trip down to the Keys since I got my Android phone and took my laptop as usual for such outings. Never once used it.
I have a torrent client, Winamp, and another media player app that got me the couple TV shows I wanted to see and I was able to grab the O&A shows too.

Not that it replaces a laptop, but for those low-use times like a vacation, it did everything I needed and more.

I definitely agree with you there (although I do occasionally wear a watch, depending on where I'm going)

My cell phone has replaced my ability to get away from my phone and get any fucking work done. Fuck these god damned things.

Phone has replaced: home phone, gps, camera, storage for pictures, mp3 player and the combination of all these has replaced having to awkwardly reject the dick bag kiosk salesman at the mall.

Tablet has replaced: laptop, books, magazines, mp3 player, digital frame, bedside clock, calendar for work, Rolodex for work, to do lists for work, memopad, speakers for presos.

Basically just my home phone and watches.

I still like my Zen Vision MP3 player. We have a GPS for the cars
so I don't use the phone since I'm texting and web surfing whilst
driving. I take a bunch of pics but the wife has a better camera
so I use that as much as possible for the quality zoom pics.

Phone has replaced phone book, encyclopedia, watch (I've lost 60 lbs and my old watch didn't fit anymore), MP3 player, wallet photos (I scanned some of my ID cards into PDF files and keep them in my phone, like my CPR card, OSHA training card and NAUI dive card) and internet router (when traveling)

Ipad has replaced books, portable dvd player, travel computer and alarm clock.

Didn't realize people asked for that before you start pounding on their chest...
In my line of work, we get rewarded with a card for every little thing we accomplish. Rather than having a George-wallet to carry everything, I've scanned them in so I have them readily available when someone asks me if I'm certified in so-and-so. If I can't prove it, I'm usually stuck taking a class so I can get another little card.

My phone, when not charging, probably spends more time in my bathroom than my bedroom. Left on the sink in post-shit disinterest.

I myself have never rented a place and gotten a land line put in, always used my cellphone.
