Earlier this morning, our full review of the Microsoft Lumia 950 became available just as AT&T sales were slated to begin.
One of the more interesting areas of the Lumia 950 is its ability to 'become a PC' through the optional $99 Display Dock for Continuum. As our review and video were already rather lengthy, we broke out a segment just on Continuum to go a little more in-depth. Of course, due to the new nature of such a technology we'll also likely follow up on this article with more depending on your feedback, questions and various usage scenarios you propose.
I do think Continuum is part of Microsoft's vision for mobile computing even if this is the early stages of it. As I have mentioned before, it is easy to sit and point out the flaws with the Display Dock + Lumia 950 setup including limitations. However, if you see the long-term implications of such a technology and what it could mean in even a year or two, you should be impressed.
While you're watching the video look out for an Easter egg towards the end. It's coming soon™ I promise!
