hmmm i think asus is on to something. phones now days are as powerful a computer (it'll kick some butts over p2/p3 and the first athlons).
can you imagine if you could carry your pc around in your pocket and just plug it in at any terminal with any phone where ever you need it? i basically see these base stations as the new payphones from the 50's til the 90's before cell phones were affordable and took off.
different IP&/different firewall because you're at a different location, different OS (if every phone can dock with this system), makes it even harder for uncle same and hackers to bother you (unless click something or you d/l something or get picked up by law enforcement of a country or a virus/trojan that has to report back when it can to expose your info)
eventually our pc's are going to be this size and even smaller some day. ridiculous you say, back in the 50's how big were computers? and 30 years later in the 80's? laptops in the 90's? 30 years later 2010's i think we are due for a pc shrink.
fyi don't ask if it'll play, cuz right now, no, it won't. in a few years, yes, yes it will play it, but you'll already be playing #3 or 1313
