Mirabook presents a laptop dock for Continuum-capable phones
The Indiegogo campaign to start this Spring
Since Microsoft is going to improve the Continuum feature in Windows 10 Mobile, and we may see much more capable hardware this year, ideas like HP’s Lap Dock – a notebook without innards, except ports, keyboard, display and battery – should be able to provide an effective solution for productivity on the go.
The French company Miraxess has just demonstrated at CES in Las Vegas its laptop dock designed to work not only with Microsoft’s Continuum, but also with Andromium for Android. The notebook-like device features a 13.3-inch Full HD screen, a keyboard with touch-pad, and a battery that lasts up to 24 hours on a single charge. Mirabook also includes an SD slot for storage, 2 x USB-C ports, HDMI and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Mirabook will be launched on the Indiegogo website for crowd-funding, for a price of $299, which is twice less than the price of the similar HP Lap Dock for Continuum.
In the Creators Update planned for this Spring, Microsoft is planning to introduce some new features for Continuum, such as the ability to resize app windows, multitasking, and more. Eventually, an emulation of Win32 apps in Continuum mode could also arrive in the near future, which means a Windows phone could effectively replace your standard PC and laptop.
