Continuum for phones is good idea, but turning your Windows phone into a desktop seems somewhat archaic when we are becoming increasingly mobile.
What is really needed is a clam shell with a good screen and keyboard which supports Continuum for phones, allowing us to easily upgrade our small screens to a more productive form factor.
Such a device does not exist yet, at least not for Windows phones, but Asus’s USB-C powered MB169C+ 15.6 inch 800 g screen brings us half way there. The portable screen, which is designed to allow laptop users to easily extend their screen for work or presentations, is only 8.5mm thick and features a 1080P resolution.
The screen is expected to cost only between $200 and $300, which is pretty affordable for such a versatile device.
Unfortunately given that the monitor gets its power over USB-C I suspect our phones may not quite be ready for this model, but I think it shows us a vision of the future where we only have one device and multiple sized screens to fit our needs all around us.
