Microsoft's Display Dock turns your Windows phone into a mini PC


When Microsoft talked about Windows 10's universal apps enabling experiences you couldn't get on other platforms, it wasn't joking around. The company has revealed a Display Dock that turns Windows 10 phones into makeshift computers -- shades of Motorola Atrix, anyone? The add-on lets you plug in a conventional 1080p monitor (DisplayPort or HDMI) and up to three USB peripherals to run universal apps at desktop sizes, alongside a desktop-like taskbar and task switching. There's no mention of pricing just yet, but it's bound to cost a lot less than the Lumia 950 and other compatible phones.
