First NexDock lapdock units have started shipping to Indiegogo backers

The first units of the NexDock lapdock accessory that work with Continuum-supported Windows 10 Mobile phones have begun shipping to their first backers.

Windows Central reader "dalydose" sent over a tip informing us that his NexDock unit has shipped, and is expected to be in his hands on Tuesday or Wednesday. The NexDock Indiegogo page also posted an update today confirming the first batch of units will begin shipment this week:

Please note that the NexDocks will be shipped in the order the contributions were received. Keep in mind that some of you contributed to our '2 NexDocks' perk, so if you are among the first 700-800 backers, you should expect to receive an email with your tracking number later this week.

Two more shipments for the rest of the backers are in the works. One should begin by the week of August 22 at the latest, according to the company, and the final batch will start shipping the week of August 31. The lapdock has a 14-inch display with a built-in battery and Bluetooth keyboard. It can connect to a Windows 10 Mobile phone with Continuum support, allowing that phone to be used like a Windows 10 notebook. It also works with Windows 10 PC sticks, Android-based smartphones and tablets and Apple's iPhone.

People who backed the project early got the NexDock for $79, and the rest were able to buy it for $119. So far, the company behind the accessory has not indicated plans to start up production again after these units have shipped

Thanks again to "dalydose" for the tip!
