GREAT idea... work for ios or just android?

as feeble as some of the specs on chromebooks are i was thinking some phones would be more powerful.

Reading the FAQ - it looks like Apple keeps things too locked up.

"We'd love to do this for iOS and we've even had conversations with the folks at Apple, but Apple is really strict about keeping their software ecosystem tight for security/branding reasons. They're also not a fan of reducing the number of devices that you need - which is the core of our mission. If people stopped going for the $2000 + $700 MacBook/iPhone combo and instead went for just the iPhone combined with a laptop shell for $150-300, then they'd lose a lot!"

"We hope they'll change their mind in the future but for now, we're Android only :)"

odd statement, the market for people buying this $200 shell and the market of people buying $2,000 macbooks does not overlap at all..  i would like to have the shell for travel purposes keep it in my car maybe, just something to have just in case. to say that the shell would be tapping into their high end notebook sales is "silly".
