I read that Ubuntu Touch in docking mode will share the phone usb port to transfer video and audio to an HDMI monitor, usb devices data like keyboards, mouse and maybe external hard drives and joysticks.

Can ubuntu phones or tablets be a full replacement of ubuntu desktops/laptops, with the only limitation of cpu and graphics power, and adding external hard drives? (i.e.: play perfectly HD movies, and 3d games if cpu/gpu supports it) or share the same usb port for everything will be a bottleneck?

Thank you !
