A new piece of hardware will soon be available to do exactly that: a new docking station will convert a Samsung Galaxy Note II cell phone into a desktop computer.
By dropping the Galaxy Note II into the dock, users can connect various peripherals, such as external storage devices, a keyboard and mouse, via the three full-sized USB ports. A 3.5 mm line out port can be used to attach external speakers, while a full-sized HDMI port lets users output 1080p high-definition video to a TV or monitor when the Note II’s 5.5-inch display isn’t big enough. Data can be stored in the cell phone's internal storage or "in the cloud" where essentially infinite storage space is available.
The cost to transform your Galaxy Note II into a mini desktop is US$99.99. The docking station will be available in about a month.
Of course, the cell phone owner is not limited to one docking station. If funds are available, the owner could buy one docking station for use at home, another for use in the office, still another for the motor home, and so on. Yet the owner will have access to all the files and programs wherever he or she is at the moment. All that certainly will be cheaper than buying multiple computers.
