PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You may not have noticed it, but in the past six months, we've been experiencing a true massacre. Not one written in blood, but one written in microchips and touchscreen displays. The scene of the crime? The United States. The perpetrator? Google's Android. The victims? Everybody else.

Currently we are still seeing phones that are just phones.

Android devices have already been modified to prove the can run equal to a thin terminal desktop. This was done with the Nexus One(Not that powerful really).

Basically the day you can dock your phone on your desk and it has Screen, keyboard and mouse connected and you are just able to surf the internet. Is the day the big change to market is here. Also as soon as you pick up phone from dock everything you were working on could have been saved in the phone until the next time you dock.

USB 3 is more than fast enough. The muli-core arm chips will also be more than fast enough to pull this off as well. Its not liking doing work for most people requires 3d graphics.
