    Ahh, so that is what I missed. Thought it still ran on trusty old micro-USB. Yes, DeX in combination with a Tab S3 does seem to come close to @Bronsky unicorn. But can you run Lexis/Nexis on Android?

    Well, I just realized that Android has one difficult hurdle to overcome for lawyers, no WordPerfect.

    Not ALL lawyers are that backwards...and Lexis/Nexis, as well as Westlaw, run just fine on Android.

    It has been a while but I believe he mentioned that it was some court that only accepted WordPerfect documents to be filed electronically. I wasn't implying that lawyers were backwards, but rather that some courts might drag their feet.

    Samsung Dex (Link)

    Two questions:

    1. Strictly docked? No Miracast?
    2. You lost the desktop when answering a call? Check out last couple minutes of the demo.

    Qualifier: I am a heavy Continuum user.

    Note: The G8 is a beauty!

    @djas The GS8 is indeed a great looking device - more than an INCH bigger screen in a near iPhone 7 size frame...and same camera as big brother (although, I have to admit, the dual camera system in my iP7+ is clearly better than the single camera in the iP7 - maybe Samsung missed an opportunity here, or they are reserving it for Galaxy Not 8).

    That was quite some time ago that the Court's required copies of documents to be filed electronically in Word Perfect format. The lingua franca of the Court is now Word .doc files. We're catching up. Slowly.
