A desktop phone with the heart of a cellphone

Cloud Telecomputers' Android Glass phone is a desktop phone that has a corded handset and is meant to stay put on a desk. But it also is loaded with Android, Google cellphone OS. Wha?

The phone, which sports an 8-inch touchscreen, brings the many features of smartphones to the desktop. You get apps like visual voicemail, calendars, SMS and email. You know, stuff that you can get on your computer. I'm sure there are some people out there who want this, but to me it seems like the inconvenience of a cripple mobile OS coupled with the inconvenience of an immobile and bulky computer. All this for between $600 and $700! What a deal!
