    That's the first time I've seen that keyboard pictured. Looks good.

    As I commented on another site, 10" tablets dropping below 400g might make me consider them next time I buy a tablet. I was more of a 7" guy before, but I find my current 8.4" Galaxy Tab S quite comfortable to use (it weighs under 300g), so I'm less resistant to larger form factors. I'd still prefer a 10" tablet with smaller bezels.

    I'm a sucker for 2-in-1 devices like this and that is looking very good... depends on the price. I wouldn't be surprised with it being over £500 with the dock and at that price I would rather get a full 2in1 windows baytrail device that Asus are working on.

    The mid level phone @ £220 sounds interesting, if the camera is any good I'll end up recommending it to the GF as she is currently in market for something at that price point.

    Why do they advertise a 2 day battery life as if that's a good thing? I can't be the only person who'd happily accept a phone being 15-20mm thick if it meant it had a battery capable of lasting a week.

    Because you'll get folks from Engadget, Wired, etc bitching that "it's a great device, but sooo thick, it's like a cinderblock" or somesuch. I'm not disagreeing with you by the way, especially as a thicker device might actually be easier or more comfortable to hold.

    I like the way that Sony is thinking, adding a proper keyboard is one step towards doing a proper content creation device. Downsides are that I think you really need a USB port (preferably "ports") and docking via Bluetooth seems unnecessary. I'm still going to insist that the way Asus' product lines do this is the best way.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
