Apple Positioning iPhone and iPod touch... as Pocket Computers

Apple is finally using the PC word (no not that one) when referring to the iPod touch. Turns out even they think it, and the iPhone, are great pocket computer.

We've discussed before how, depending on needs, some folks here (and everywhere) are leaving their laptops and netbooks at home some days and getting buy just find triaging emails, reading docs, searching the webs, and using whatever percentage of those 75,000 apps are useful on-the-go tools.

Apple, for all their talk of gaming, isn't ignoring that segment either anymore. Right up on, they're promoting the pocket computing process of their mobile platform.

Of course, things won't get really interesting until we get built-in Bluetooth keyboard support, right Apple?
