well i guess we are coming from different points of view ... i feel that the internet is not just a visual experince, and in situations where it is non visual (as in large pictures, video etc) then mobile devices are fine.
i agree that devices are beign forced onto people, every kid wants an ipad/tablet whatever ... and what do they use it for, basically messaging their mates and facebook updating ... things they hardly need a high end tablet for, but try and tell them that!
however the good news is that i imagine that the television and home computer will merge in many ways .... so many homes (not mine!) have a tv in every room, how long until it is mainstream that your mobile device connects wirelessly to the tv and you use that screen and with a slight hand gesture you can switch between tv and internet, additionally the home computer/entertainment system/broadcast tv is all merging ... so before long the internet will be commonly available in homes on 40-50+ screens
