NexPhone: All-In-One Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop, PC

With smartphones becoming more and more powerful each year, today's top devices are powerful enough to perform most of the tasks needed for everyday life. Hardcore gamers aside, most smartphones are enough for the general public's internet browsing, email collecting and document viewing/editing needs.

NexPhone Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop, PC

For somebody who only performs smartphone-capable tasks with their PC or laptop, having a number of different devices can be costly and unnecessary. The NexPhone concept hopes to remedy that situation with a one size fits all solution that becomes whichever device you need it to be. The versatile device comes with a collection of options ranging from a simple dock that allows you to connect your own peripherals to a tablet dock, laptop dock or pc dock.

The device is currently just a concept seeking funds from crowd-funding site IndieGoGo, but it certainly isn't the first to come up with such an idea. Asus's Padfone offers similar solutions with its docks, but the NexPhone aims for a more complete package with a keyboard and trackpad built into its docks.

    Not exactly a 'new' concept but one who's time is clearly coming.
    Smart phones are clearly getting to a point where they have the computing power for most everyday tasks. So docking them into a PC or Laptop shell could be interesting as long as the various docking hardware does not cost more or close to the device they are supposed to replace.

    make it x86 with windows so I can have more of a desktop expierence with some of my old applicaitons and I am sold.

    Even better would be a device that, instead of 'docking' to take over the use of a periphrial, would be to make the device bootable, so that my phone would have all of my data and applications, and be able to use the hardware (cpu, gpu, etc) of my laptop device, or my desktop device. The phone could be absolutely gutless, but with a big system drive/SSD, and let it leech the power of other devices instead. That is the phone or 'personal device' that I really want.
