I've seen the thread for the USB2BGA connector (which also had a frame rate issue), but haven't seen anything on the Targus docking station. Any link or additional information you can send us?
Targus presumably has a USB connected dock with the same SIS chipset as, e.g., the StarTech USB2VGA2 I use. (StarTech has a 6-in-1 dock (which might even be the same under different badging).)

Kernel & userspace support is available from Chinook, thanks to Graham Cobb. Nokia's been shipping kernel-level support for these in Diablo (still works with GC's userland), and has some sort of internal productivity suite including full screen-mirroring support; it's what was used for projection (e.g. Qole's Easy Debian demo) at the Summit.

If you watch the video of my Maemo Summit presentation (recorded and posted by Jamie Bennet), you'll see what video-out on the tablet looks like. I used a Nokia-provided N810, installed Easy Debian on it, used my Debian partition with OpenOffice and presented a PowerPoint slideshow (with animations) using Impress.

And yes, framerates were very much an issue.

It's not just a niche device, It is a computer, if you use it as one.

Is that a penguin in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
You answered my question. The N810 IS a FULL computer. It's just size challenged and sacrifices comfort for portability.

I'm guessing the RX-51 will blur the lines further by fixing the USB2VGA (at some point), easier to use USB devices, more usable web-cam, etc.

This is a good article: Linux vs. Linux, tablet vs. Clamshell
Old, but a good surprise for me.
