Can a mobile phone replace your PC?

One user seems to think so.

With mobile phones becoming more and more powerful, it’s an easy enough question to ask – will our phones be one day powerful enough to act as a full-fledged PC? It’s not a new idea; Ubuntu has been toying with this for a while now.

So an inspiring YouTuber named coldfustion has decided to answer that very question, by taking the newly launched Samsung Galaxy II through a variety of everyday tasks that would otherwise be run on a PC. Now as he states in the video the setup isn’t 100% ideal for some users, but for many of us just combing through emails and websites is something we can do on our phones with ease.

Check out the video below and decide for yourself – could you work off of your mobile phone?
