    I want your opinions DF members
    so here's something I've been thinking about... we've said we would like a webtop style feature... but how about we go one step further... if we make the device powerful enough why not have a full ubuntu install for anyone that wants to use the lapdock feature, thereby making this phone into a true laptop.

    if it's powerful enough it would be possible.

    just think of the possibilities... you could run ubuntu with a wine environment and be able to play older PC games... hell you could probably run a win98 virtual machine and play older games... you'd have full laptop functionality word-processing etc etc I've seen the webtop hacks so it's possible and with enough ram and drive space it would be conceivable.

    so what do Droidforums members think of this idea?

    ---If you seriously want to help with this then please PM me, I'm going to start tabulating a list of people who are interested---



    Our Team of people (titles will be decided later)

    Liftedplane
    FoxKat
    Drew96dawg

    KoolBradeR

    here is a list of possible specs... give your opinion on what you think would be good and why

    Code:
    [SIZE=3][FONT=Arial][B]Display[/B]: 
    - size: 4.5" | 4.6" | 4.7 | 4.8"
    - type: HD Super AMOLED Plus | LCD
    - with scratch resistant and water proof coating
    [B]Memory[/B]:
    - RAM: 2GB - 4GB
    - storage: 32 GB | 64 GB
    [B]Camera[/B]:
    - type: carl zeiss | nikon
    - MPs: 13MP to 41MP
    - Secondary front facing: yes
    [B]Chipset[/B]:
    - type: intel | Qualcomm | Nvidia
    - frequency: 1.5 GHz to 2.0 GHz (dual core | quad core)
    - GPU: Adreno | intel | Nvidia
    [B]OS[/B]:
    - Pure Google Android 4.1
    [B]Battery[/B]:
    - Size: 3000mAH+
    [B]Body[/B]: Full Kevlar back[/FONT][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=3][FONT=Arial][B]Additional: [/B]NFC chip?[/FONT][/SIZE]
    here is my personal list of what I like

    While in the RAZR HD hangout thread I had an idea... How about instead of complaining about why the RAZR HD won't have enough ram out how the s3 isn't pretty enough. Why not get a team together and pull an ouya, get on kickstarter and build a seriously powerful Android phone using the Droid forums community.

    However its best to test the waters on the in the forums.

    Do who is interested in this i mean seriously interested.

    Funny, I was just thinking yesterday about how if we got Google, Motorola, Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, Nvidia, and a host of others together to make The "1PHONE" (a little play on words there...), taking all the best from each, radios - Motorola, screen - Samsung and/or LG, GUI - Motorola and HTC - MotoSense or SenseBlur, Sony - Music Player, Apple/Nvidia - Graphic Engine (yeah, I know...Apple=traitor!), Intel/Qualcomm/Texas Instruments/Apple - Processor, and Google for the Android OS, what a phone it would be!

    Yeah, but then Apple will sue all the others for being on the same project. They have a patent for using multiple manufacturers on the same device.

    God that's funny but true

    I personally like Nikon, or anything with the proper Carl Zeiss optics.

    What about for the screen? 4.8 seems to be a good size if done right.

    I'd say 4.5 to 4.8 would be perfect.
