Continuum for Phones: Windows Smartphone as a PC Replacement

Microsoft has shown a demo on the build as a Smartphone with Windows 10 replaces a PC. It is connected to a HDMI monitor and mouse and keyboard, and thanks to universal apps appear then the desktop applications on the monitor.

Microsoft has shown a demo at conference on how to build continuum on smartphones, which is a technique for dynamic switching of the user interface. The demo ran on a Smartphone with attached monitor then the desktop versions of the apps. So far was only with hybrid notebook to see continuum and there switch between desktop and Tablet-mode of the apps.
In the demo switched the Smartphone between the phone and the desktop view. This works only for apps that bring a desktop – or at least Tablet-layout. Only the apps as universal binary really bring your complete desktop version, offering all functions. Even they not run then of course with the speed of the desktop computer, the Smartphone hardware is less powerful.
Microsoft showed that with PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook, as universal apps exist. The Smartphone worked here as a second display, it still showed the tile surface and Smartphone apps. Copy & paste work between all app types. Microsoft emphasized that new hardware is necessary for continuum for phones, which displays different content on two displays instead of reflect externally only the Smartphone display.
Also the Tablet/desktop switching by continuum got an update. The running apps in tablet mode in the fullscreen distributed at the onset of tablets in his cradle as overlapping Windows on the desktop. Microsoft, which joined with the arrival and docking a keyboard of your user face showed also a Win32 application – continuum is so reserved not the tile applications.
Android, iOS and Ubuntu
Similar approaches for apps that run on multiple devices, there are also from the competition. Android and iOS know universal apps for tablets and Smartphones that can dynamically adjust their layout on the screen size-but no support is provided for desktops, notebooks or even tablets with docked keyboard. You said for some desktop skills Ubuntu, but manufacturer canonical no longer mentioned in the current version.
In the self test in c’t 8/15 did a rather poor Android, when running it with the mouse, keyboard, and an HDMI display – especially the bad multi-tasking and the missing scaling on the large display area disrupted. The startup Jide wants to bring out remix OS an Android Tablet and the Android version which solves some of these problems.
