Microsoft’s bet for extended applications on its Windows platform is rather important. For a minute there we though this was just about making the life of a developer easier, but that was until we learned that Microsoft Continuum was designed to allow you to use your smartphone as a CPU. The only problem is that you need to have the extra €75 that the company is selling the required Display Dock for in Europe, but that seems to depend on the country.
Microsoft has already begun pre-orders for the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the company’s first devices running Windows 10. We do know that even though both devices are capable of handling Microsoft Continuum, the Lumia 950 XL is the most fit to handle it through the special mods found in the cooling system of its processor. If you’re willing to go for the more premium model, Microsoft has just decided to bundle the Display Dock, though currently that only applies if you live in either the UK or Germany.
The kick off for both devices is still far on November 28, so let’s just hope this isn’t just another limited time offer.
