Forget Mini PCs, Microsoft's upcoming new feature known as Continuum will transform your mobile device into a full desktop PC. Just connect your Windows Phone to a monitor or TV, connect a USB mouse and keyboard to your phone and start using your PC. On the monitor you can use your phone like a normal laptop. This means that Windows 10 running on the phone will expand to full view like a regular Windows 10 laptop. Now that means something for phone users. Although it is possible to use almost all software and functions of a PC on a phone, but in a stripped down version. But what if you can keep typing your email after plugging your phone into a monitor when you get home? Now you no longer need to connect your phone to a regular PC to transfer files. Your phone is your new PC.



Another nice thing about this feature is that when the phone is connected, the incoming calls to the phone do not interrupt the PC screen. You can answer a call and end it and your desktop experience will go on without interruption.

Microsoft will likely launch the continuum first on these high-end phones
