When you mean "standard", I presume you mean "available as an official accessory", or does that multimedia hub use a standard connector to the phone?
It's kind-of-in-the-middle right now. Somewhat similar to early laptops where you often had non-standard connector which you used to connect to dongle with standard LPT/COM/etc ports.
But even if dedicated desktops become extinct, the practice of desktop computing will survive: it's just a way of working, after all.
I'm not so sure. I know of many, many office workers who don't have desktop computers at all. Only laptops. Sure, they are similar to desktop, but as a way of working they are different. Mobile phone which is connected to projector to show presentation or to monitor and keyboard to type large text will be even more different. There will be some users who will use them as today's desktops (after all 1-2% of PC users use them as if they were minicomputers - with X Window system and everything), but this will be small niche, not a mainstream.
