Many of us would already contend that the Galaxy Note II is more of a pocketable computer than a smartphone, so why not take the definition at face value? Samsung certainly is, as it just began selling a Smart Dock that transforms its phablet into a makeshift desktop. A trio of USB ports give the Note II options for a mouse, keyboard and even external storage — and if the phone’s 5.5-inch screen isn’t already a large enough canvas, HDMI video (plus stereo audio out) should fill the gap. While there’s no question that the Smart Dock’s $ 100 price is relatively steep, it might be worthwhile for those still mourning the loss of Webtop.
