Too bad "Project Linda" will never be mass made or sold.

I wish the laptop had Windows 10 installed and just used the hardware from the phone. 😫

Love concept, finger crossed it came out... and other manufacturers pick up similar form factor for example: Microsoft and mobile Windows S (they trying docking systems for a while and with new processors would work), Apple and iPhone line (form factor of their phones don't change through generations, and fanboys would buy even if overpriced), Samsung and Galaxy line (great phones and big supply base of screens and additional memory), Huawei & Xiaomi & Oppo (cheaper Chinese form factor is an advantage, also they are innovative)... Remember Motorola Atrix dock? they used to be the way to make a raspberry pi laptops until used ones become out of stock or to expensive on eBay... Now imagine small Rasberry Pi ZERO in this not beast but can work (but only if shell cost around $100-150 ish) Chinese manufactures I'm talking to you 😁 If I would buy this type of device? Yeap... only if Apple would consider additional storage/SD expansion... 128GB it's not so much if you don't like cloud services or you are out in "wild life" were internet conection is shity

the first thing you buy after laptop is a mouse, having option to use phone instead will not change that :D
Alex Genti karamuca (4 months ago)
They must develop it ASAP. Phones in one decade have already become equal to PC so with some enhancements from the case this project can cover much more things than the every day business use.
Lord Corporal (4 months ago)
This is a useful thing for techies that have multiple devices for different things. Sure you could buy a laptop with same specs at same price (not with Razer build halitosis) but sometimes tech guys who have multiple devices use an. iPad, some use phones, laptops etc

Epic. Hope it hits the market.

I hope Samsung use this idea coz it will be used all phones nd it will be cheaper too

I think it'd be better to put a regular track pad in and just make the phone attach through a usbc cable on the side. That way this device wont become obsolete when the Razer Phone 2 comes out.

Asus Padfone ... reloaded :) and Motorola Razr Dock it's not something new... I am still waiting for the cradle made by JIDE
Remus Vitan (5 months ago)
Yep, I also think that you did. I just wanted to emphasize the "old idea" and by this to show that I think that it will not appeal to the public (the same success as the old ones)... even though personally I am quite a big fan of this idea ! just waiting for the one that really fits my need
TechnoBuffalo (5 months ago)
Pretty sure I said it was a new take on an old idea.
Dedly Gunns (5 months ago)
reminds me of the dex from Samsung, kinda interesting but practically pointless.

Max Chan (5 months ago)
That's not a bad idea but individual people have different cases on their phone. Would be annoying to take it on and off for to use a laptop. What happens if someone going to call you, do you answer on the laptop?
life track (5 months ago)
Max Chan it's a prototype probably going to get fixed =)

Microsoft should make a phone that runs android , but runs windows 10 on ARM when docked. One device to rule them all.

Pretty Cool!! It will probably cost an arm and 3 legs though...))

Tomas Prevendar (5 months ago)
WOU!!! NOW I KNOW WHY THERE IS THAT MUCH RAM ON THE PHONE!!! AM IN LOVE!!! I NEED THIS! but seriously if they do this and it seems it dont need Soooo mich more polish at all, i would consider my next phone Razer phone no fucks given about the price if i knew i could do this with it ! Its like you can save so much money and not to worry about having a real heavy expensive notebook with you just if you want the basics and face it 85-90% of the majority of people ARE the basics on PC like web/eshops/video/netflix etc/casual games etc some basic word etc , and for real stuff like GAMING and vid.enc. you have to have REAL PC anyway not some overpriced 3500 macbook "pro" lol ...
Philip Philadelfic (5 months ago)
This thing is way more handy than Samsung’s dex. Just my opinion.
Oo2k10 (5 months ago)
Didnt Asus already done this?
Braxator (5 months ago)
I'd love this with a iPhone X and when you dock it get MacOS.
Andrew Hoffman (5 months ago)
Interesting. ASUS have released this exact same device in the past. Very good but never quite realised its full potential. ASUS didn’t continue development and it just seemed to drop away.
Adrian Riley (5 months ago)
Definitley a good idea/concept. You guys should check out the new Dell XPS 15 2-in-1! I keep hearing great things but there's hardly any good videos on it.
Marc Di Pinto (5 months ago)
If this actually comes out. I'll actually buy both. That's what I been wanting for ever now
Henry Murr (5 months ago)
I’m crying because I have an iPhone and there is zero chance that Apple will ever do this
Alexander Ho (5 months ago)
Henry Murr apple own the patent and Razer may get sued.
Collin D (5 months ago)
Henry Murr then switch lmao

That’s kinda useless.

Tablet is far better to buy rather than a over priced Razer dockable tablet, pretty useless

Its a cool concept but I don't know who could be the user it's aimmed for
Alex Rodgers (5 months ago)
Yeah but a bad camera = a no buy. Won't buy a phone that can do everything if it can't take photos.
Monica Ervin (5 months ago)
They fixed the camera
TopStyleX (5 months ago)
I would insta buy that!
SikSlayer (5 months ago)
This is a far better idea than it seemed when I first read the headline.
QuadrupleDodrio (5 months ago)
Anyone else notice these concepts never come to fruition? Pretty sure Razer announces these as a marketing tactic to garner attention.
nick de jong (5 months ago)
Well they are concepts kind of the idea and they can see how the public reacts to it and see if there is any demand for it.some of the concepts they showed before like the modular pc and the 3 screens laptop are just not possible yet.
Damian Allen (5 months ago)
This would have to mean that Razer would have to be married to the design of the phone -- at least for a few years. I don't see anyone going out and replacing the laptop portion just because Razer decided to change the design of the phone that will no longer fit in the chassis of this laptop. Other than that, I'm pretty impressed and would definitely have to think hard about getting one.
Branden Schuler (5 months ago)
I would buy this in a heartbeat. Thumbs this up so Razer sees it on all of these videos.
Luis Ocampo (5 months ago)
You know what? I would so buy this if it was below $400 price range. Perfect for my daily lunch break movie time.
Tyler Eberhardt (5 months ago)
I want one. Wish Samsung would make something like this.
Monica Ervin (5 months ago)
they kind of do with the DEX
BulletsBacon Beer (5 months ago)
I want it. I will buy the phone and dock if priced right.
Krystian Matuszewski (5 months ago)
So it's gonna cost a lot of money and break almost instantly...
John M Flores (5 months ago)
Pretty neat idea. It would have to be cheaper than a laptop, obviously, and cheaper than a Chromebook too to make sense. And the idea would really sing with a Windows phone. Oh the ironing!
srouvalis (5 months ago)
Motorola already tried this with the Atrix. Didn't work for them.
robhimself79 (5 months ago)
Yup, its super cool but super impractical, especially if you're refreshing your phone every year or two... Motorola learned that already.

Nathan Dias (5 months ago)
This seems so freaking cool. Would love this.

I guess you need not one, but two Lazer Phones?
@Brant_Moore (5 months ago)
Feel better Jon.
Sideways 740 (5 months ago)
Want bad! Need HDMI out support though! So you can then hook it up to a big screen or a projector for ultimate versatility.
Nate Mathis (5 months ago)
But what about when you get the razor phone 2..
Collin D (5 months ago)
Nate Mathis well this is just a proto type so maybe they'll make a way to work with more then one model of phone
Christopher Thomas (5 months ago)
I thought of this idea :(
Ed Tuomi (5 months ago)
I really want this!!! The only problem is that I don’t know why.
queenform (5 months ago)
did someone steal it yet?
jaypob (5 months ago)
Basically, if it's, say less than $200 then it's a great idea. Any more than that and you're getting close enough to just carrying a tablet or Chromebook with you.
Draz'Gul (5 months ago)
Am I the only one who thinks that this is..... useless?

Couldn’t think of a better way to describe it!
TheBcoolGuy (5 months ago)
It's a cool idea, and one that's been around since at least 2012, but in practice, I wouldn't want this. I like to keep my phone separate from my laptops and my desktops. To me, my phone is for more "normie" stuff. YouTube, Reddit, Gmail, as well as more phone specific uses, such as alarms, timers, and of course, the cameras. I don't want to mix that with the actual work and gaming I would do on a lapyop or desktop. If I want a laptop, I'll use either my own or my school laptop. If I want to do any sort of computer work, I'll get on my main rig. It's cool, but it's nothing new in concept, even if the tech has come forth a fair bit in basically 6 years. It just feels wasteful and cluttered to have the shell of a laptop lying around whenever you don't want to use your phone as a laptop. I did consider getting a Note 3 and doing something like this back in 2013, but in the end, it's not practical. Android isn't very practical for more than phone and tablet use. Laptops and desktops require more openness, and a different interface to get the most out of them.

IamMclov1n25 (5 months ago)
hopefully Razer in the coming years will begin to dominate more of the tech market. They are one of very very few who think outside the box and push boundaries
C. P. (5 months ago)
I wish someone would make a product like that to work with any USB C smartphone. I would love to plug my pixel 2XL into something like that. Just saying.
Echø (5 months ago)
Super cool, practical and usefull
Jorgensen Penus (5 months ago)
The best reason? You mention that it's a prototype and might never come out. How is that even close to the best reason?

Too bad they have bad customer support

This is useful & practical
wade keslering (5 months ago)
I'd buy!
GinsuSher (5 months ago)
Pretty cool concept
Rashad Jones (5 months ago)
Kinda pointless, but intriguing...
Rashad Jones (5 months ago)
lightning 457 I think they tried it with the Atrix. My issue is compatibility with newer phones. Also, it would suck if something happened to your phone (hardware or software related) and you had no computer too.
lightning 457 (5 months ago)
r jones it doesn't has to be used only by razor other companies will also get there hands on this idea, i hear it was Motorola's idea first nd then just used it against
Gianni Zuccala (5 months ago)
r jones I do and I think it's brilliant
Rashad Jones (5 months ago)
No Google, I don't want to use my real name. How many people own Razor phones?
How is it pointless? Chromebooks are selling well, and they do the exact same thing. These "shells" could EASILY be as cheap as 1 -150 dollars or so. That's very compelling for a snappy laptop-like experience.
TG (5 months ago)
This is the coolest looking laptop I have ever seen. So much innovation and refreshments, it takes laptops to a whole new level!!!
TG (5 months ago)
SmellsLikeNirvanna i know but the way Razor made the phone and laptop cooperate is just the way it is supposed to be

Weirdly Made (5 months ago)
I would rather have the laptop run windows but use an application with strong integrated features with the phone. I want a normal laptop with seemless access to my phone's ecosystem.
Giacomo (5 months ago)
So... an iPhone and a Mac
Weirdly Made (5 months ago)
Write anything of significant length in a text editor. Not sure if playing full games or decent photo editing would be considered average or not.
Name something your average person does on a windows laptop they couldn't do on a phone.
I like the concept, my brother had 2 generations of the asus padfone docking tablet phone. And that realy highlighted the drawback of having a large accessory that is entirely dependent on a phone, something that is highly likely to break during handling or go obsolete, leaving you with a laptop shaped paper weight, and these thing almost never have support across generations of phones. 5 out of 7 perfect score would buy.

They should revamp their customer support first before anything else

lol, changed it

y should the track pad be at that spot? can it be like a software only (kinda like a bluetooth mouse) track pad? that way theres no need to have a track pad anymore? crazy concepts again by them. great job.
