Key features: 

- In one package I get headset, watch, phone, e-reader, digital photo frame, HTPC keyboard, tablet, netbook, docking station and case while all devices cooperate with and complement each other and every powered device can work in a standalone mode too 

- low price: you buy just one camera, one GSM module, one 3G module, one Wi-Fi module, single set of speakers, one jack socket, one high-performance device, one earphones, single set of cables, one microphone, one light sensor, one light diode, one dock, one case, ... while you buy a phone and tablet independently, you buy all of these components twice 

- you get more visual outputs than ordinary tablet or netbook can offer 

- power efficient: there is no need to use large screen all the time; you can choose which display you will use
