One of the points I made in recent desktop discussions was that computer
platforms in the near future may emphasize portability over performance
-- my ideal platform would fit in my pocket, yet support a display and
keyboard when at a workstation.
Turn a Handheld into a Desktop with Blue Dock
By Ed Hardy | Editor-in-Chief

Synosphere is currently developing the Blue Dock, a docking station
to allow a handheld to function as a desktop computer.
Blue Dock Once a handheld has been placed in the Blue Dock, the user
will be able to create, modify, and edit data on a full sized
monitor using a full size keyboard and mouse. Users will have access
to email, the Web, and network resources -- including file servers,
printers, and other shared workstations.
Current model iPaqs pack more punch than the system currently serving as
a footrest (and nameserver) under my desk.
