A new Kickstarter project promises to turn your smartphone into a laptop.
Dubbed “The Superbook,” the device is a shell that turns your Android smartphone into a complete laptop. The Superbook provides a large screen, keyboard and multi-touch trackpad, 8+ hours of battery, and phone charging capabilities. When plugged into your Android smartphone, it launches an app to deliver the full laptop experience.
Tapping into the abilities of your smartphone, the Superbook can do everything you can do on a laptop—and more. With desktop-class browsing, access to office applications, games, and even programming, the opportunities are limitless.
The Superbook is compatible with all modern Android devices, including Samsung Galaxy / Note, LG, Nexus, HTC, Sony Xperia, Blu, Huawei, and many other smartphones. As long as your phone supports USB-OTG (which it most likely does), the device will work for you.
Some of the specifications include:
11.6″ HD Display – Great for productivity
Multi-Touch Trackpad & Keyboard – With Android Navigation Keys
Access all the files and applications on your smartphone
Always connected via your phone’s data, Wifi, and Bluetooth
How it works
So how exactly does The Superbook run? With your smartphone’s processing power and our Android app.
All it takes is these two steps:
1. Download the Andromium app from the Google Play store
2. Plug in your smartphone into the Superbook
That’s all it takes. Check out the video below!
