I'm sure many of you have already heard about Ubuntu Edge. It is an idea to bring the power of a PC and mobility of a smartphone together in one device. The user would carry the device around like a phone in their pocket and use it as a phone. When at home or office desk they can dock it and turn it into a PC. They are crowd funding the idea with the vision that the future belongs to this revolutionary hybrid idea. Obviously the technical challenges of compacting the computing power of a PC into a pocket device abound. It's yet to be seen how it will work out.

 

What do you think? Do you see the consumer market move in that direction in the years to come? How about business devices?
