phone and tablet cameras are much easier to be there all the time.

I agree. Unless tablet cams and cell phone cams start taking pictures like a D800 with an F2.8 lens as well as replacing all the intellect of how a photographer would dial-in the camera I think we've seen the peak of this trend IMO.

I saw a guy walking around Times Square taking all his photos on an Ipad today....for quality photography's sake I hope people keep doing that kind of stuff.

Even if I gave a free D800 with a 70-200 and a copy of LR/PS to every person out there in the world there are only a handful who will truly learn how to use these tools properly as well as invest the necessary time.

Until all that experience and skill is completely replaced by technology then I really do see this as a trend of gadgetry rather than true photographers.
