    NexDock Touch enters mass production, pre-orders begin

    It is a refined NexDock 2 with a bigger screen (touch sensitive), and a larger battery.

    Considering its "dumb" - doesn't seem particularly cheap when you consider you could actually get a Chromebook for that price... I suppose it does have its uses though

    I just find this comical... Palm (and blackberry iirc) basically proposed companion devices for mobiles before they 'went bust' but pretty much every tech blog slated the idea and said it was stupid/pointless etc....

    Now here we are with essentially the same concept getting praised etc.

    Having said that I can kind of see a use for something like this in datacentres when you need to 'plug into a server'....

    This does make a certain amount of sense, especially (I suppose) for those that live their lives via a phone and don't really need a 'proper' computer, but occasionally would find proper screen and KB useful, like using online versions of desktop 'Office' apps for longeer/bigger tasks. It's not for me, though.
