Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

"People want tablets because their phones are too small."

I think a good deal of iPad users bought one because it does everything they used their PC for but it's easier/safer/slicker (their perspective) and more sofa friendly... not saying many on here would consider it a replacement for a computer but it sure is for someone who only bought a Windows system to browse the web and check e-mail.
