Why wouldn't it be?

Because it's a dock, the OS is on the phone, Ross.

I think a good way to describe the 'tablet' would be to call it an external display for the PadFone.  The fact that's all it is may explain why the whole combo is so light.

Did read that Ubuntu Mobile OS will allow you to dock the phone and use it for a tablet/computer ... as phones get more powerful, why not. We will get to the point where all your computing needs will be in your pocket, it's only a matter of time.

Exactly. The whole thing combined weighs less than the new ipad.

That's actually a good idea. I thought the two might be independent. As for Apple...I think their granny is showing.

Nice setup Taz. MS looks at that and thinks....................oh no! Linux will get together with Ubuntu (I know...same company) and Buntu them into the middle of the next century.

2of3 wonders if he should save money for this rather than the HTC One.

This is likely the future for general computing in quite a few households.

I've been eying off a Gigabyte tablet with Win 8 full OS for $665 AUD.  This model has a 64gb SSD, but there is another for $640 with a 500gb HDD, and another for $713 with more RAM, a 64gb SSD and a HDD. 

It'll be a while before I look to actually buy one, though, given I've just purchased a new 27" monitor and a 4 bay HDD enclosure to upgrade my desktop setup.
