Microsoft Announces Windows 10 Phone Integration With Desktop Peripherals

Pretty neat.
Quote:Continuum for phones, that is coming with Windows 10, is Microsoft's ace up the sleeve. The feature, which requires new hardware and will be arriving in new devices this summer, is the 'killer' feature that you can only get on Windows 10 for phones and it will not be easily replicated by any other player in the market.

What this feature allows you to do is take your phone, connect it to a keyboard, mouse and monitor and use the device like a desktop PC. This isn't a watered down experience either, because of how Universal apps are designed, you can run all of the Office apps just like you would on the desktop with most of the features being present as well. While we know this may not be a feature everyone will use on day one, it's easy to see how this functionality will one day replace your laptop.

Looking at how quickly smartphones have progressed over the past 10 years, it's fair to say that the devices of today are at least as powerful, if not more so, than the laptops of ten, maybe even five years ago. If you think about where the smartphone is headed in the next five years or so, you can only imagine how much horsepower will be under the glass in future devices.

Phone continuum will likely never replace developer machines or those used for video/photo editing but for some users who only need email, chat and web browsing, this scenario is a very real solution to consolidating their technology.
