Always on != has landline
There are many people (half of the world?) who are potentially always connected to the Internet but do not have a landline and do not use their connectivity because of cost or lack of cost transparency.
Everything has a place
I tend to use my Nokia E61 (eur 70 or so with subscription) for simple tasks such as looking up something on the Internet or checking the date or time (programmers don't wear watches :-) The screen and keyboard are usable, the battery lasts a few days and it fits comfortably in a jeans pocket.
A laptop is something that I use when I need a 1920 wide screen or proper keyboard or heavy applications. But it is never comfortable on a lap so it is almost always on a table and plugged into the mains to save the battery. Lugging a high-end laptop around an airport is no fun, and the battery will only last a short flight.
Just my opinion,
Why I use NetBeans instead
