[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.

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.
