@anz23mthings Time for Qs!
Q1. Are smartphones cheap enough to bridge the income divide or adequate as a PC substitute? #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:36:16 +1200)

@lewisr3 smartphone is not a substitute for a computer/laptop, can’t imagine writing an essay or job application on one #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:38:47 +1200)
@infoliterati @anz23mthings Karen also from Perth – lucky I’m having a flex day off so can join in! #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:39:17 +1200)
@mum2tjt It doesn’t matter how cheap the device is, education is a big contributor to the divide #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:39:23 +1200)
@anz23mthings @CorinneHinton Great answer πŸ™‚ Would you be able to add #anz23mthings to your tweets? Not everyone can see these ones :)(Wed, 29 May 2013 20:39:40 +1200)
@lewisr3 still plenty of demand for computers in public libraries in NZ e.g. @peepsnetwork #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:39:56 +1200)
@minimacx2 @lewisr3 agree just too small to be useful , too hard to read the font too LOL #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:01 +1200)
@anz23mthings @lewisr3 I agree! I find word processing hard enough on an iPad to select words and even get my cursor between words! #ItSucks #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:17 +1200)
@be_siriusnz Not a PC substitute but a useful tool all the same #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:20 +1200)
@ironshush @anz23mthings I believe they are cheap enough (but hey, I’m in the developed world have a job, so don’t really have a clue) #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:22 +1200)
@stokesrenee I’m using my pc less and less at home these days – I’m on the mobile a LOT more #anz23mthings but, it’s an iPhone, and they’re not cheap…(Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:26 +1200)
@minimacx2 @anz23mthings cheap ones are rubbish IMO so no #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:38 +1200)
@anz23mthings @mum2tjt agreed – digital divide is not just having access to the devices but knowing how to be information literate #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:40:48 +1200)
@Jaybeenzs Had a customer this arvo wanting to put photos from her smartphone onto her Facebook page, but did not want to use our WiFi #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:41:01 +1200)

@lewisr3 @stokesrenee i find my iphone screen too small for any serious web use #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:41:55 +1200)
@stokesrenee I think I could get by with a mobile for most things, and a public library PC for word processing jobs #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:41:56 +1200)
@anz23mthings @Jaybeenzs So how did she expect to do it? Just use her connection when she had free WiFi??? #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:42:17 +1200)

@melchivers @anz23mthings it depends what causes the divide – ability or money. #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:42:25 +1200)
@Jaybeenzs She wanted to use our Connect computers – screen too small #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:42:30 +1200)
@anz23mthings @minimacx2 I would agree with that πŸ™‚ but they are getting better… #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:42:32 +1200)
@ironshush Whether they can substitute for a computer: not wild about using them my tablet now, that has pretty much replaced my lappy #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:42:37 +1200)
@nataliee_1 @mum2tjt @anz23mthings So true. Education is the cornerstone #ANZ23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:43:23 +1200)
@anz23mthings Quick Q #curious how many of you use a smartphone? Either solo or in addition to a tablet or as substitute for tablet/PC? #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:43:33 +1200)

@anz23mthings BTW, I think this article http://t.co/7jLAHReF9z looks at US prices; NZ/Aus still pretty expensive 😦 #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:44:47 +1200)
@hmlamond @stokesrenee agree, I hardly use the pc at home anymore – tablet and smartphone do the trick for most things #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:44:51 +1200)
@robyncollins6 @anz23mthings #anz23mthings cheap enough to get them into more hands but not a PC sub otherwise why do people choose to have multi devices??(Wed, 29 May 2013 20:44:54 +1200)
@S_McCahon @mum2tjt @anz23mthings I agree, without the education, a smartphone is sometimes just a phone. #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:44:55 +1200)
@minimacx2 @anz23mthings hardly use my cheap one at all, it quits so often its pointless, saving for an iphone or ipad #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:45:06 +1200)

@hmlamond There is still the question of data cost on top of device… #anz23mthings (Wed, 29 May 2013 20:45:49 +1200)
