Lol, It is weird but livable. I think the production units will be fixed though.

it's not in the final stage. They may be using a model that used to run on GB but now that ICS is available the polished version I doubt will have them.

The current ics still does not support capacitive buttons thats why...and for this model i can't seem to find any hinge to support the phone with the tablet. I'm guessing that since it does not make sense if the phone needs to connect with the tablet through a wire, it should be using dlna or other technology to make the tablet?

Ics on the Nexus S uses its capacitive buttons.

there was a sneak peek at this thing last year at MWC and it has a door for the phone in the back. i'm not sure i agree with the door approach myself... ICS does support Capacitive buttons for your information.

Yeah it supports the cap buttons. The phone goes into....a small pocket so the phone doesn't fall out.

Apple probably owns the word "Pad" making this another delay due to the Cupertino Coward's egos..........
