\"...being limited to the concept\'s constituent devices, which would clearly be a bit limiting for the consumer\" However this concept opens up the option of having snap-on bezels around the devices and standardized charging implements, if standard form factors emerge for tablets, is this really that far fetched?
Almost there! This is very close to what I think would be the perfect mobile system. However, there are some serious redundancies and performance killing design choices. 1) The phone concept is what I have been writing about for at least 1 1/2 years. Perfect! However, I don\'t think the camera and phone need to be different. There is now a very nice camera that runs the Android OS so all they have to do is include the communication chips and finally the lone camera no longer has to be bought and carried around. The placement of the camera on the system is great! That camera now acts as the laptop\'s rear facing camera. When the user wants to go out on a date, for example, he / she simply clicks out the phone (has the camera and communication chips) drops it in a pocket and is ready to go. 2) There is no need for the other tablet and nobody is going to use that electronic keyboard. It must be physical with a click. Additionally, there is no need for that extra tablet. The technology already exists to just use the tablet as the main screen and CPU and click it to the keyboard section. Just look at the Transformer Prime. Now add the phone / camera to the Transformer Prime and things are getting very close to ideal. 3) Just one final need is a place on the phone to store the ear / mic. While in you just use the phone as usual. When you click out the ear / mic, it automatically sends the voice / audio signals to the ear / mic. This way we can have a hands-off video conference with just a lift and a click. You lift the lid of the laptop, click out the ear / mic and the system knows a video call is very likely and asks if you would like to set that up. Say \"yes\" or touch the screen to confirm and within seconds the video call is connected and running. Finally, the final mobile package size should be very close to the Ultrabook reference design or the Mac Air. Any bigger and it is too difficult to carry around for too long. My wallet awaits this device!

I\'ll be really surprised if this weirdo makes it beyong the \'concept\' stage!

I will stick with my palm preIII HP tablet and olympus stylus 7040 14. mp, thanks, happy with what I have, and I have a 7 lb Pomeranian sitting next to me that belongs to my son's girlfriend that will rip your throat out if you disagree

Makes sense, and the fact that its not a new idea suggests that something similar may actually happen soon.
A great GI-Joe multi-weapon and value add for the mfg but, let\'s be\'ll never sell except as a corporate mobile office or gift for the man or woman who has everything. Maybe there is a market there but a manual KB will be the first accessory to purchase as a glass tablet KB is, at best, a sometimes-useable feature.
Sign me up for one. How would the cell phone work? Do you buy it from a carrier or straight from Fujitsu? Either way I like where this is going. Make that Tablet maybe a little bit bigger. Do love the idea that all would be synced in a snap. Keep all my websites and passwords all together.

I would totally buy this! I am planning a hiking trip which is over 2,000 miles the AT. In the trip I am planing I will be hosting a web page and getting sponsors to pay for miles towards cancer and multiple sclerosis. having a way to pack all of the electronics I would need to keep my sponsors up to date over a six month hike will be invaluable. In fact I have been looking for a way to keep in touch and edit my online content with the high standards of my photographic schooling. having everything in one could lighten my load and also minimize my dependency on recharging. If I could recharge the entire unit and decide on which device had priority It would cut down on the solar charger unit I was planing on taking on the trip.
