An environment that converts your smartphone into your personal computer

Everybody owns a smartphone. Most of us work at a computer some part of or almost the entire day. Instead of carrying a laptop to work every day, what if we could have work stations (just like computers) that could be converted into "your" work stations when you connect them to your smartphone?
What does this exactly mean? Imagine the scenario:
- You carry everything that is on your laptop on your smartphone. Smartphone storage is increasing by the day and will soon catch up with that of the laptop.
- Your office has work stations that simply provide the environment (the apps and programs that you require) for you to work. You cannot perform all your work on your smartphone because, currently, it does not have the working capacity to run complex programs, and due to the small screen.
- You attach your smartphone to the work station. The work station then resembles your PC. It has everything - your photos, your passwords, the presentation that you made last night at home. You just bring up the presentation and make the last minute changes. When you disconnect your smartphone, the work station goes back to universal mode. You have a similar station at home.
- The work stations are like ATMs. You work on them for a while. After you disconnect, anybody else can use it.
Why do we need such work stations?
- Smartphones are lighter and easier to carry than a laptop.
- Work stations do not save any data. They help you perform your tasks. All the data are saved in your smartphone, which you carry everywhere.
- These work stations act like projectors for smartphones. Your smartphone screen is smaller to work on. Also, it may not contain the environment to open/ modify/ create specific files.
- Such work stations can be installed in all public places.
Any critical comments and improvements are welcome.
