    I saw similar thing on a kickstarter project before, the product is called Superbook. But this is a way to use the power razer phone holds, and game at the same time. I wonder if any pc game will run fine there.

    Zero point to this whatsoever.

    No one wants to run a larger Android OS, what most people want is the ability to play non-Android games, and to use full powered PC products such as Office/Photoshop/CAD etc.

    It’s a nice concept, but been done several times before. Kickstarter and Indiegogo are littered with examples of these already.

    Ideally, this would run Windows games but the Windows phone is dead. Nice try, Razer, but this won’t make any headway.

    Yea thats true, also Linus' video made me thinking, that it potentially could be a very good solution for example mid sized companies with an open office, where you dont necerrarly have your own desk, that seems like a trend nowadays.
    In that case the longevity is a really good question, because okay you bought these extentions, 10 or 20 or so for your office but realisticly this phone will be obsolete in about 2 years. So then this all only makes sense if Razer stays at the same or sameish form factor.
    If that's something we can count on and let's say I make a startup I might even consider investing money, but I doubt we would get this kind of ensurance unfortunatelly. Longevity is not something that any major tech company is strong in.
    Except for the ThinkPad series, There you can be almost sure that if you buy the dock for example it will last you.

    What goes in the smartphone slot when your phone is not in it? Can you drop something else like maybe a touchpad in there?

    I think it only works with the phone in it from what I can tell from looking at articles and such on it so far, so I think when the phone is not there it is meant to be closed and its just kind of an empty spot for the phone to go.

    I haven't seen the concept tried by a phone manufacturer (if it's been done I've missed it), which in my mind makes it more credible (or maybe, more accurately, more realistically available someday in the future down the road?) than the crowdfunded efforts.

    Everything else you said is spot on. It doesn't really do anything extra for the gaming community since it doesn't open up any additional gaming opportunities besides those already available on the Android OS (I guess you can count playing a mobile game on a quasi-laptop as...I dunno kinda cool?).

    My thought concerning enterprise use, something I think Linus mentions offhandedly in his video, was that if Google does eventually merge its Android OS and Chrome OS then that opens the door to some additional possibilities - Google Drive's office suite at the very least, but can't you use Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc. on the Android OS? (Serious question; I've never owned, nor spent any significant time with, an Android phone) But unless people can have access to - at a minimum - MS Office programs then the appeal for business users will be limited.

    The more I think about it the more I think that it might be something that's like 3-5 years too soon. Or too late if you really want a Windows phone. Still dig the concept though.

    Nothing, it's not a laptop. It's an attachment that allows you to use your Razer Phone in a laptop form factor which is interesting, but I agree with others, it's pointless because of the Android OS.

    Now if they could release a line of Razer Blade's that run Windows and allow me to dock my Razer Phone in it and use it as a secondary screen/trackpad but not be stuck in the Android environment would be great. I would use the hell of it just for multitasking since I always have both devices on me anyway.

    The constantly evolving form-factor in mobile phones is a good point. Someone else mentioned the hassle of dealing with phone cases, which I can see being an issue for some. I refuse to use cases ever (if I have my phones in cases I'll drop them more often) so something else I didn't think about.

    Nice, now to see how long it may take for this to be considered standard equipment for higher education.

    Honestly I think this is a bit stupid. That means razer phone has to stay the same design and size forever or the project Linda is useless when I upgrade to new phone.
