Word on the streets says Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S8 could also be used as a full on Android-based PC with a dock, display, mouse, and keyboard. That’s a good idea. Michael Andronico:
A special dock called DeX will allow you to use your S8 as a full-on Android computer with a monitor, mouse and keyboard.
This isn’t a new idea, either.
This all sounds quite similar to Microsoft’s Continuum feature, which allows you to connect Windows phones such as the Lumia 950 to a dock and get a full Windows 10 experience.
Imagine your iPhone as the only device you need. Dock it in front of a display, keyboard, and mouse, and you’ve got a very inexpensive Mac. Apple could do this in a heartbeat. Apple won’t do this because Apple is a hardware company.
