    i backed something on Kickstarter called the Superbook by Sentio over a year ago (maybe close to two), and have yet to receive it till now. And then... next thing i know.. Razer goes and creates its own! should've waited and saved my money for Razer instead Grrrrr

    I just tried docking with hp lapdock no joy
    Keyboard works, display out from razer phone does not
    Try installing sentio on razer phone, it looks nice better than my old phone even has really cool splash screen .. I loaded latest version from play store.
    I'll have to sell hp lapdock to fund something else.

    Bit disappointed I only just got razer phone this week
    And already razer phone 2 has been announced
    Project Linda now being muted for that
    I don't mind as long as form factor remains
    I love this phone and am excited to see lapdock come out
    It was a big plus to buy phone

    It must be coming out on razer phone 1

    Just download sentio desktop, launch it

    Pretty obvious

    It launches with unique razer slash screen and start button. On other phones nothing near as flashy

    Hopefully, fingers crossed, soon

    That looks cool since you can use project linda to project your razer phone to the laptop screen

    what a cool design! I wonder how much it'll be...

    Depends on touchscreen
    Which it really don't need as you have phone as touchpad
    Touchscreen will add weight, cost and battery drain

    The model shown at CES without touchscreen ticks all boxes
    Just hope they don't price as crazy as my hp elite lapdock, they were 700 dollars at launch, large companies could only afford them, hence when hp stopped making phones to work with them (elite X3) price bombed.

    Price for normal non-touch cannot exceed 500 pounds people will just buy a laptop instead.

    For a touchscreen assume at least 100-150 more.

    Price at 450 will attract more people

    Just don't wait for razer phone 2, sell now to build market and generate demand for updated phone later.

    Selling later with new phone, is a kick in the nuts, for those that paid for phone outright.

    I got lucky and got mine from states for 100 liquidation stock,. I was sent 2, sold one to pay for razer

    Good NEWS!!!

    I was messing around with my Razer phone and my HP Elite Lapdock

    I can output from razer phone as follows:
    1. Power on HP lapdock with usb-c cable in phone connection socket.
    2. Once powered up, connect usb-c to Razer phone.
    3. Voila, phone outputs to HP lapdock.
    4. I launched sentio to see what it's like.
    5. Sentio launches fine!!
    6. Keyboard letters work, some launch need work via a keymapper.
    7. Sound and video work good
    8. Can't get rid of android buttons on side
    9. Mouse pad is a miss it works no double click, will use a Bluetooth one.
    10. So you get a semi working lapdock from HP elite lapdock.
    11. It does charge phone as well.
    12. Ok so a little annoying to have phone and usb-c cable out, but hey it is ok till real device comes.
    13. Only annoying thing in disconnecting from lapdock needs the lapdock to be switched off and on and repeat from step 1.

    If razer focus their phone more towards camera then linda will bloom, thats just one scenario out of many.
  16. Request Razer bring this to market. Though not the first to use a dock for a phone, this is undoubtably the best implementation which could see a variety of use cases. Understanding Razer markets to gamers, but the Razer phone and Linda would also be great for business travelers for cutting size and weight while maintaining productivity. Should Razer deliver the promised software and firmware upgrades to the phone camera, artists could edit on the road.

    Many of the CES journalists reviewing Linda brought up the point that most, if not all, Razer concepts don't release. This is one they should and sooner rather than latter. Latest rumors of an actual launch are for Sep 18. Eight months is a long time in the tech industry. Rather than wait, I would like to see an immediate preorder for a version 1 of the product to be delivered in March. This product is for hard core fans and would reward early adopters of the first Razer phone. It would not need to include all the trimmings aside from what was shown at CES. Razer could forgo the touch screen and additional memory, and the higher resolution screen might even drop off to get the Linda to market quickly. Those cost cutting measures could keep price reasonable for a first gen product and I would purchase as shown at CES.

    Looking forward to the possibilities and wishing against a long wait.

    The biggest costs normally CPU, storage, ram, graphics card, which in this case are the razer phone.
    Leaving battery, screen, laptop shell (which should be mainly the same as they have)
    Anything over 500 would kill it dead
    400 would fly off shelves
