I'll have to throw my two cents in here, but my back-of-the-napkin calculation of my personal iPhone usage breaks down kind of like this:

phone calls: 5%
text messaging: 5%
skype calls and messaging: 5%
RSS reading: 35%
Facebook/Twitter: 15%
Web browsing: 15%
Google maps: 5%
Other apps: 10%
Movies, music, audiobooks: 5%

Looks like a computer to me.
