Acer Jade Primo ‘pocket pc.’

Tags: , , , , ,


I didn’t get to see Acer’s ‘PC Phone’ launch at IFA as I was heading to their booth to check out the new Switch range, a new Chromebook and the Cloudbook. Since then I’ve tried to find out more details about the implementation and the dock and I’ve made some enquiries. The Acer Jade Primo – ‘your pocket PC’ – is the first real product we’ve seen demonstrating the new technologies that will enable your phone to be your desktop. Windows 10 Mobile, Continuum and USB-3.1.

Think about the Continuum Laptop.

Last week I wrote about the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and how it could drive adoption of the Windows 10 Mobile ‘smartphone’ as a core computing device for all consumer needs, whatever the screen-size or input method. The Lumia 950 rumor and that image of the USB-C dock brought back memories of the Continuum demo at BUILD 2015 and it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to see that extending into barebones laptops driven by Windows 10 Mobile devices. At IFA I saw another interesting accessory. It’s not a smartbook but could be a smartphone-book. A phab-book perhaps. OK, I’m still working on the name!
