    To those who are or had been an entrepreneur is it necessary to have both cellphone and a computer? Or having any of the two is enough? Place yourself in the shoes of a startup where in every penny counts in your business.

    If I was forced to choose, I'd prefer a computer. You can still make calls via Skype after all. I cannot abide browsing the internet or attempting to work on documents through my phone. Data entry takes too long and the connection is unreliable.

    I agree with @missbishi, if I absolutely had to choose one, depending on how tech-intense my business was, I'd either go for a full computer or a high-end tablet that had lots of capabilities. A phone would be too small and limited to use for running a business. Most likely a computer would be the answer, but I really like the portability of a tablet, and that it enables me to complete tasks when I'm not sitting a the desk.

    As a web developer, I must choose the computer. It is extremely hard to code php on a smartphone.

    It defends on the type of business you have. If your business can run w/o computer well you go for mobile phone but if you work most of the time in front of the computer you have to buy for computer first.

    It will depends that you are running any kind of business or doing a job.Because if you are in job then computer is not necessary and if you are in a business then both are important.Because mobile is for business conversations and communication with customers and clients.

    These days because of the advancement in technology the smart phones are adept to perform almost all the tasks that can be done using a computer. But if you have a resource intense work like designing, coding or testing which requires long answers of concentration then a computer will be handier.

    Hard choice, especially considering what we can do with smartphones now, I'm still going to have to go with the computer.

    It is a time of advance technology and in smart phones you can find everything like you can do online shopping,pay all type of bills etc. But if you are developer then computer is necessary for you, because coding,programming can not be done on smartphone.

    I barely use my computer, so I'll choose my computer any day of the week. I pretty much live on it in my free time lol, so it's more beneficial to me. I actually hate browsing the web on my phone, or doing much of anything on it.

    Yeah for Professionals computer is necessary and they will prefer it over a smartphone. Because everything can be handled by the computer.

    I need both of it. Even I can't think my daily life with the above 2. So both computer and phone is my essential part of life.

    Both are essential part of life now days but if i have to make a choice between the two i would choose computer because it is the required professional tool and it can cover some parts of communication done through a cell phone.

    Definitely the both are needed nowadays, but if I had to choose one option I would choose a computer because without a computer I feel like my hands are tyed and I can't do my job. Also I can use Viber, Whatsapp, etc on the computer instead talking with the cell phone.
