    I see this as becoming really handy and the way that technology is moving forward. With a high internet speed, there’s no reason to do the “heavy-lifting” of processing power on the device itself. Rather, you can use the mobile device as a sort of remote for the desktop. This is already shown in programs such as LogMeIn and Teamviewer which allow people to remotely access their desktop on their phone. I’m just glad that Microsoft is bringing it’s own spin on it into the market. More options for the consumer is always a good thing.

      I think this is a fabulous idea but like Serdar has mention in the article it will only work with the newer technology. Which means phone upgrade again. I’m not one of those people that has hundred or dollar to spare and upgrade my phone whenever a new one come out. Which mean window’s next project should be to make sure that older phone version can also get access to this new amazing feature. They will make a lot more money that way. (Your welcome Window!)

        I’m afraid that’s not how it works. There’s the issue of processing power, and the necessary hardware for it that doen’t exist on older phones. Continuum isn’t something that is necessary for a person so one can live without Microsoft’s newest feature.

    This is very cool and handy for Windows users that want to be able to do business and work while not at home. I think Microsoft is having a very good time this year with all they’re bringing with Windows 10 and everything they are bringing with the Xbox one. Microsoft has been killer in their own regards with all they’ve recently done.

    Continuum sounds so promising. I have always wanted to use my smartphone as a desktop computer. It would be convenient considering the fact that I carry my phone with me every where I go. I was recently looking in Google Play for apps that had some type of Microsoft Word or something similar to it. I can imagine Continuum will be a huge success for Microsoft.

    I have yet to use Continuum. Thus far, my favorite Windows 10 feature would have to be the ability to record your desktop natively from within the OS. It’s very convenient, and pretty much eliminates the need for third-party desktop recording software, unless you’re intending to record something that is over an hour long. I have to say, Microsoft kind of hit it out of the park with Windows 10.

    This is interesting. A phone that has HDMI, Bluetooth, mouse/keyboard support is really a neat idea. This is a similar concept to Android PCs, except the Android ones have no screen of their own, and can only be used as an HDMI connected device (with wireless mouse and keyboard).

    I really like this multi function in a phone. Seems like a smart move. Still a little hesitant to buy a high end Windows phone though…

    Continuum is one of many incredible features that Microsoft is baking into Windows 10, and it helps achieve the company’s goal of a seamless experience between smartphone, tablet, and PC. It makes sense that Windows 10 would bring a feature like this into the mix, and Microsoft will continue to benefit with higher sales and higher adoption rates if it can combine phones, tablets, and PCs into one big ecosystem!

    As many of you agree, Continuum sounds really promising. But let’s not forget: the phone is still using a mobile version of W10. So don’t expect to use the full desktop version of Adobe Photoshop. Still, there’s a niche that will enjoy this because it will satisy their needs.

    Personally, I’m waiting the day when Microsoft announces a smartphone will full-desktop Windows 10 and Continuum. There are mobile processors that already support desktop Windows 10, but no phone (Google “Intel Atom Z3580” and check some videos).

    This certainly sounds like a real effort on Microsoft’s part to engage with the modern business user. We work in so many different ways and so many different environments these days that a new approach is really needed. So many people no longer have a set office, but work in coffee shops, libraries or just plain 0n-the-go that the option to create a desk-like environment based around one’s phone has to be a plus point. I’ll be interested to see how this new initiative progresses.
