I have a wish.
I would love to see a tether cable that we could plug into the station and the phone. We could wrap the phone up in Otterboxes run the cable from our bag or pocket or nightstand to the station in our hands! Doesn't that sound wonderful?
C'mon EE's and hardware hackers (maybe ASUS product dev too), is this possible?
To be blunt, this sounds like a fugly idea, if you make JUST a cable to connect the 2. How are you going to hold both? If there was some kind of weird contraption that mounts an otter box to the station, it would add way too much weight and bulk.
In short, the Padfone X is for people who are ok using their devices naked, because any other way is just too awkward for an already partially awkward device.
The only way your idea would be useful would if you had the keyboard and you kept it and the station sitting on your desk and you came in to home/work and docked your phone to it. But that seems like a waste for sure.
