The main appealing feature the Ubuntu phone had that made me pledge during the indiegogo campaign, was the possibility to use the phone as a desktop (with a docking station). I haven't followed the latest developments, will this be a feature they are going to implement or is it already possible?

It fast is becoming a reality - there are multiple videos on google+ of convergence on the nexus4 using what is known as the rc-proposed channel.The nexus4 device is MHL enabled and connectable to a monitor, thus it is best at showing where things are at. The more capable Mx4 lacks MHL 😞

Bq has announced a convergence 10" tablet for later this year.

Yup, this too is a convergence capable device, with video out....

This can be the device that puts UT in the spotlights of the hands of real users, not only fanboys and devs. Competitive specs, great screen size that can compete with androidsiOS. Probobly OK price and above all shipment world wide.

Interesting!

Edit...seems that the first report was false not world wide.

That is really a very impressive spec, especially for something not running a heavy Android VM. It doesn't look like it has any video out though, so I assume it won't be able to do the desktop-transformation thing.
