Galaxy Note 2 As Desktop PC

This is interesting:

What’s missing? A touchscreen monitor.

(I see ViewSonic is selling one, but it doesn’t seem to tilt or lie flat.)

The Nexus 7.7 is the next mid-range Google tablet, going to offer a 7.7-inch WUXGA display (1920×1200, 294 ppi). It will offer a 720p HD rear and front cameras and will be powered by the same NVidia Tegra 4 chip, along with 2GB of RAM and 8/16GB of internal storage. The price will be of $299 for the 8GB model – while both devices are expected to come with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie. An announcement is expected during this year’s Google I/O event.

Google’s I/O event takes place May 15-17.
