Continuum is a new feature Microsoft launched as part of the announcements for Windows 10. At least for now, we know that this feature transforms your phone into a desktop PC when connected to a big display. Here the phone adapts it’s interface to fit the bigger screen, depending on what you’re using it for.

In a recent conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, did a demonstration of the Continuum feature. This new technology lets you attach a monitor, mouse and keyboard, to your Windows 10 smartphone. Achieved through the use of accessories (wired) or through Bluetooth and Miracast (wireless).

Satya showed all these to work successfully. There’s also an upcoming Continuum dock that one can use (codenamed Munchkin). It is expected to be sold at $100 during launch.

Another good news is that the Continuum feature will be focused on emerging markets. Starting with high-end Windows phones before the feature is trickled down to cheaper phones. This would be a good move, considering the fact that the smartphone is the first – and only – computing device for the majority of us in this part of the world.

  1. lol, the last paragraph is amusing. it wouldn’t be so useful in emerging markets, the cheaper/lower end devices would lack the processing power to do any heavy lifting and the cost of the peripherals would be another barrier to entry

  2. It won’t take long for this feature to trickle down to cheaper phones. Give it a year or two and you’ll have budget phones with this.
