I am also skeptical but I'd be more skeptical if people like us didn't pledge :)
 
I'm most skeptical of the 50 enterprise pledges at 80,000 ($4 million). Right now 0 out of 50.
 
I am happy to se 4 out of 50 one of a kind.

Well, I backed it.  'Cuz why not?  I'm pretty skeptical they'll make the $32M, but I think I'll be happy if they do, and if they do, I'll have a new toy to play with.  

Plus, I really, really want the whole dock-the-phone-to-become-a-desktop thing.
