I was thinking of something similar to this ever since I saw the Atrix. If they can get this into a compact laptop that is as light as the Macbook Air, I would buy it instantly. Then you laptop has instant internet access, although carriers would propably still require a tether fee for you phone even though it is just docked into a laptop.

I know its going to be expensive, but the way AT&T charges for data with stuff like this, it may in the mid to long term pay to buy this outside of the carrier and off the net. Seeing the big difference in cost is going to be for the phone, the netbook thingie will probably more or less cost the same either way.

Yes, this looks interesting, but, not sure the actual phone part is going to be on par with new offerings from Samsung , HTC and others.
