you see that handheld, i had the EXACT SAME IDEA for ipod touch gen 1
FINALLY someone used it and possibly we see a real viable games on android, and not just throw away games.
come on, be such a great success that it forces apple to tip their hat and offer similar.
and in all honesty, this would be perfect for gaming.
it allows portable gaming with the base device, and the handheld
allows bigger gaming screen with the tablet
and allows for more complete controls with the laptop.
this could make android the be all end all of mobile gaming soon.
i honestly never thought that they would make nearly exactly what the need to compete with actual gaming platforms.
There were adaptors for the iOS devices, as early as 2008-2009 or so, so it's nothing new. In fact, if you think about it, the earliest "controller-screen" combo was the SEGA Dreamcast controller add-on. So it's nothing new there either.
They should've added the tablet as part of the laptop, like the Asus Transformer.
The laptop like addon will have to well below $100, the tablet will also have to be well below $100
and the controller will have too be around $20 or less.
Other companies that have tried making a laptop like add on for a smartphone have failed because for the price, you can easily get a much faster netbook running a full OS that can be dual booted and work standalone.
