With the new Ubuntu touch for all devices i have some questions. When you dock the fone will the dock be able to hold a graphic card or HDD and will you be able to use 2 monitors. If a graphic card cant be added you will not be able to use graphic intensive software and games, and sort of same with storage. It will then be better to still have your fast desk top or lap top. I would still buy a Ubuntu fone.

I doubt it, as X can't hotplug graphics cards and I don't even think it can hotplug monitors. Maybe eventually Mir or Wayland might support it.

Mobile GPUs aren't bad, you would still be able to play games. You wouldn't be able to play AAA games, but then they wouldn't be compiled for ARM anyway.
