(Mobile) Software Is Eating the World

Mobile Is Eating the World | Andreessen Horowitz

"There is no point in drawing a distinction between the future of technology and the future of mobile. They are the same. In other words, (mobile) technology is now outgrowing the tech industry."
A funny thing is that main feature of such device is the screen, not the phone. 
It is really a "communicator" device and smart assistant. 

But "phone" part was critical for adoption, since it is a familiar metaphor, 
and it enabled easy financing: purchasing $700 phone is easy $100 down payment,  
and purchasing $700 PC (or laptop) is usually "real" purchase. 

Could screen (and large battery) decouple from this personal communicator device?
Even more, could "personal" data and apps become a container that can swap shell device?
