Using a Mobile Device as a Desktop Computer

19 Feb 2012  No Comments

This is what using a capable modern mobile device (in this case the Galaxy Nexus) as a desktop PC. Connection that are used are:

  • Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter (supports audio)
  • 3.5mm Audio caple (optional. as HDMI has audio)
  • Bluetooth Mouse/Keyboard/Apple Magic Trackpad

With mobile devices getting more  powerful with each release, and HTC already rumored to release the first quad-core phone. The days of having a separate desktop PC are numbered except for hardcore gamers and professionals. Phones like the Motorola Atrix tried to harness the power of current generation mobile devices by releasing a “lapdock” for their phone.

Even Asus think that phones are pretty capable devices. They showed-off  the “Padphone” concept phone last year where you slide the phone in a tablet casing making it a full fledged tablet.

What I think this needs is induction charging and a wireless display technology to get rid of all the wires. This might not get me hooked, but I know a few users that like the extra real-estate that a desktop PC gives them, and this might be the answer.
