Asus made this Tegra2 Powered Laptop and Tablet combo device, where the tablet part can slide out of the bottom keyboard part. This prototype feels heavy though, perhaps it’s just because it’s a very metallic design.

Moimstone is one of the leaders in VOIP phones for home or office use, they are now showing one that can dock an Android Tablet, for large screen overview of contacts and video conferencing.
The concept is pretty awesome, this small touch screen bluetooth screen that can be worn as a watch can interact with any of your Bluetooth enabled Android devices, it’s got an SDK for app developers to add Bluetooth remote functionality for their apps. I’m hoping someone make remote controlling for VOIP apps, calling contacts, and other useful Android apps on your smartphone or tablet.
