    Great vid! I would buy that in a heart beat, if I had the money. This is what I thought the Galaxy Nexus would be (back when no one knew any better) :happy3:

    That would be nice if the next nexus would have that ability. Can you imagine what the development would be for that device. Imaging 4.65 inches of goodness in a cell phone transforming (pun intended) into an asus tablet. :biggrin:

    I have a feeling that the carriers will force users onto a tethering plan for something like this, like what AT&T did when the first Atrix dropped. Although Verizon hasn't forced this with their Moto phones and the docking station, and I believe AT&T has moved away from this.

    All in all I think it's a great concept but it's just a little too much money for all the bells and whistles. With over $900, you can get yourself a nice phone and tablet and use Wifi tether and call it a day. Or you could get a Galaxy Note and forgo carrying around the clunky hardware that comes along with it.

    I hope Asus succeeds, but I won't be surprised if it's a flop. I doubt Verizon even gets this anyway. I don't see a reason to get this phone over the GS3.

    I see your point but I do what you say right now...I have a Galaxy Nexus, Acer Iconia A500 & an iPad 2...I use tethering as well. Problem is that files are saved on individual devices so if I forget one device I won't have the files I need. YES I could put files in the cloud but it's nice to have everything all on one device. I have the Bionic & the lapdock and it was nice but VERY slow & clunky. Based on the video this device seems just as fast as any tablet or phone.

    Current Phone Model:
    NEXUS 6
    I love what they've done with it. Essentially, you have a phone, tablet, and netbook all in one.
