Following its successful crowdfunding campaign in 2016, NexDock is kicking things up a notch for its next project. In the same vein as the original NexDock, the new version will be a laptop dock that you can take on the go. However, rather than simply being a dummy dock for PC sticks, mini PCs and Windows 10 Mobile phones, the new NexDock will be made specifically with Intel's Compute Cards in mind.
From the looks of things, the new NexDock will host a dedicated slot for Intel's tiny Compute Cards on the side of the display. The device will also be the first 2-in-1 docking unit to support Compute Cards, NexDock says. Of course, there are other goodies that will be included as well, including "interchangeable USB Type-C modules" that can pack extra battery life, additional ports, and more. Alongside support for Compute Cards, the new NexDock can still be used with other devices like PC sticks, mini PCs and Windows 10 Mobile phones over Continuum.
The new NexDock is expected to be available at some point in mid-2017, but there's no word on pricing just yet. Still, Intel's insanely small Compute Cards seem like a perfect fit with what NexDock is trying to do, and it will be cool to see where this goes. In the meantime, you can check out more at NexDock's website.
