There are other players too in market who have tried there hand in increasing the capabilities of Android smartphone by giving it PC form factor. Motorola became first manufacturer in leveraging the smartphone’s features by providing external peripheral and launched Atrix 4G smartphone. In one more attempt, California based startup announced a budget system that can give any Windows 10 mobile a laptop form-factor. The crowfunding campaign for the said device NexDock had already hit the target but yet to hit market for sale. There is one more device that had been one of the most famous a ‘without limitation’ device named Symetium which will be the first device with a customized Android operating system, that can run on both PC and smartphone.
Andromium also tried before in 2014 to design a workstation that worked on mobile operating system but needed all extra external peripherals including keyboard, monitor, and mouse.

When user plugs in an Android device, it launches an app to interface smartphone with PC, so he can experience seamless performance.
