Calculators nowadays

Hello guys.

I would like to know your opinions about the use of calculators in today's world. Nowadays, from my perspective, any average Tablet can emulate a calculator with a good level of efficiency (there might be some delays, as their architecture wasn't made for that) and they are far more cheap than many common programmable calculators out there (like HP 50G)! there are quite a number of free softwares that can run most functions from the scientific calculators (how we call them in my country). Seeing that the technology is developing at large steps, i think calculators will lose their place in the future.

Of course, there's always the teachers: will they allow it, seeing that Tablets can connect to internet, which would allow for cheating in exams? still, for home use, Tablets can do the job fine.

So, what do you guys think?
