[LIVE] Casetop May Transform Your Mobile Device into a Productivity Device – XDA Roundtables

It has long been the dream of many technology enthusiasts and road warriors to have to carry only one piece of electronic equipment and still be able to stay in touch. The smaller the electronic equipment, the better. As it stands now, many people carry a phone and a laptop.

There have been many attempts to remedy this situation, such as the Motorola Atrix and its laptop dock. However, this only worked with Atrix handsets. Many tablets have tried as well. The ASUS Transformer line allows users to attach a keyboard, but that doesn’t function as a mobile phone so you are still carrying two devices. And not everyone’s a fan of the Padfone. Well, XDA Senior Member andjohn has begun a KickStarter project called Casetop. The Casetop device promises to turn any phone into a laptop.

We wanted to know how it works, so XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan set up a live interview with the developer of this project. Jordan will ask all about the device, and some questions about what it takes to build something like this.

So check below for a link to the live broadcast when it begins at 8pm Eastern(GMT-4) or check out and subscribe to the XDA Roundtable YouTube Channel.

Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
