    The App catalog is just another version of thin Clients. In some cases is just a simplified method to connect to a web server (clearly not with stand alone apps like games) to get content or interact with your data. As long as it thin and the network and back end holds up, the end point hardware shouldn't matter. It's all moving that way.

    I couldn't tell ya, but the technology that Blackberry is using to accomplish is available on android devices. from what i know, the USB hosting and Miracast have been around for a bit.

    Like the OP stated, it would be great to have a docking station which eliminated the need to have so many things plugged into the device. If you see at the end of the video, the guy had to unplug three 3 different items.
    The problem I've seen is android is riddled with malware and OS inconsistencies. BlackBerry is more secure via BES as well as the OS IP in general...

    This isn't exactly a new concept. It's never taken off, for good reason.

    Yes. Which is why Tablet computers running iOS, Android and Windows 8 are proving to be very popular. Not docking mobile phones.

    I expect small, dockable Windows 8.1 tablets to lead the way in this...not Android or BB10 phones.

    Real mobile computing should have a real desktop interface when docked! What we see now is just a blown up mobile interface. It is not designed for desktop.

    Well it seems to me that people are talking about different interpretations of mobile computing alright.

    A likes a thin client with a good data connection, where all the heavy loading is done back-end. I know Dell and HP in Malaysia does this, with their servers linked to the ones in Singapore.

    B prefers everything crammed to a single device. Then again, from what I understood from a friend who works with Intel, the big picture seems to be looking at the "put a power of a PC into the size of a handheld device" as the holy grail of IT technology.

    C would want ultraportables, of every kind and bring it along.


    Me? I'll be happy if i can find a tablet windows that actually has discreet graphics to boot, therefore replacing my laptop and desktop for most use basis (i'm heavy on documentation side, but I'll prefer some real GPU horsepower in that portability as well)

    Agreed - we're looking at trialing the surface pro 2 - a possibly small step in the right direction..!?

    I suppose the Dell Venue Pro 11 may be a better choice, then again the Surface Pro 2 has a sexy chassis.

    Indeed ,good alternative to desktop but replacing it will be impractical as still very complex computing can be done only by desktop

    No mobile platform will ever replace a windows, Linux, or apple based computer. They can dream about that all they want.
    With cloud services some businesses are already moving away from the traditional desktop and notebook computers. Tablets and smartphones have been proving themselves viable in these situations.

    Different users have different wants. I, will never go for that kind of solution such as a chromebook being the interface, or when there is no connection or poor connection, it becomes a really expensive paperweight.

    In what way is Microsoft especially well situated to capitalize on this "inevitable" future, while Apple is incapable? Both have mobile OSs running the same kernel as their desktop versions.

    In fact, between in-house SoC design, decades of experience integrating hardware, and a massive and enthusiastic base of mobile users, I would think that Apple has the advantage here.

    I would like to give this a try... need to get a mini HDMI adapter and then get something to hook it up to. The Android Citrix Receiver sideload works nice on my Z10.

    Does the Z10 work with USB hubs to connect usb kb/mouse?

    Since you write documentation and want to use a tablet maybe you should consider the BlackBerry PlayBook and a cloud services called writeLaTeX.com. But I hear you in regards to needing a feature-rich graphics application as well.

    Personally I dislike laptops with cramped displays and poor keyboards, short battery times, weight etc etc. Thats why i like idea of using mobile phone as productivity tool (with tv/monitor, mouse and keyboard). Something like chrome books, for consuming and some editing. But this will never happen until they make desktop enviroment as comfortable as mobile.

    Friend has a Windows 8 computer, Windows 8 Surface Tablet and a Nokia Window 8 Phone

    He can install an app on one, and it installs on all (Windows Store Apps only). Change setting for email on one and they change all. Save a file via the built in SKYDRIVE and it open in recent documents on all. He can open a MS Office file on his desktop, and edit it on the others. If he loses one... and he still has the others.

    So, I'm not sure what you're saying. You'd like to carry around a tv/monitor, mouse, and keyboard, along with your phone?
