    The biggest drawbacks are probably text input and screen real-estate. Though, many of the functions we traditionally use a keyboard for, don't necessarily need a keyboard. With an adapted UI, some of these functions might even become easier on a handheld device.

    There are also some powerful features on iOS that design tools could leverage to make design faster, simpler and more rounded -- touch, voice input, Apple Pencil etc.

    In the near future, I think we will see things move in that direction to some significant degree, at least.

      with about 13 inch there is a hell lot of space. especially if you use the keyboard, then you have more space than on a 13"MBPr or 13"Air (Just thinking of the 1024points height)

      I think it would work. pretty good even.

        ... and then you work with your arms stretched over the keyboard, tapping and dragging on a screen with your fingers, where you actually need (pixel) precision? Cannot imagine doing this longer than 30 seconds.
