Asus Plans Netbook With Slot-in Mobile Phone, Gives New Meaning to ‘Phonebook’

by Lambert Varias

After what I imagine must have been a booze-riddled, yet awesome brainstorming session, the folks at ASUS came up with the idea of a netbook with a slot for a specially-made mobile phone, giving users “an easy way to use the same SIM card and data account for both a phone and a portable computer.” Amazingly enough, the phone already exists – it’s made by a company called Modu, and their “ecosystem” already revolves around that gimmick, a phone that slots into different cases and devices.

Of course this concept could be so much more awesome if it offered more than just an easy way to use one SIM card and one account. For example if you were surfing the web on the phone, when you insert it into the netbook your browser will start up and you can resume browsing. Or if you could use the phone’s screen as the netbook’s touchpad. Or if you could easily drag-and-drop data between the two devices. What do you guys think?
