but they should be on the NHS and probably better made than the average smartphone.
Nice soundbite .. but plainly not true .. in the VAST majority of cases they've made people LESS productive (spending more time telling people what tey had for breakfast on twitter) .. I'm assuming you were alive when you bought one .. and I still think they are (currently) creating nothing more than a "perceived" need, and more work.
if( "lack of smart phone" == "inability to work") (smartphone+1) != "make life easier";
What you seem to be implying is that the app store should somehow be regulated and there should be a Judge somewhere who approves the quality of a given application to determine whether it's "good enough" to go on the store .. however, I'm not sure this is where you were wanting to take your argument?
Incidentally I have a very small (and high spec'd multi-core) Atom netbook .. gets used for reading Windows CD's and that's about it.
show me the killer app

They are still making netbooks .. though they seem to be turning more into mini laptops
Android Tablets (oddly, more what I had in mind when starting to play devils advocate than smartphones), are IMHO completely worthless junk.
Mmm, without wishing to state the obvious, that would make them "mini laptops", not "netbooks" (!)
