MWC is without any doubt the most favorite event of all tech lovers because the event has certainly given a great platform where all has been revealed. Alcatel has given insight into its working "smartbook" prototypes and their idea of this has been close to the Lapdock by Motorola which was badly doomed or even the ASUS PadFone. The concept follows from these devices that a brainless laptop will be powered using an Android phone but Alcatel has come up with a different strategy though their platform is the same.
There would be no need to physically dock the phone somewhere instead you can easily hook it up wirelessly on the laptop. The video signals will b dealt with over the Wi-Fi connection and the keyboard plus trackpad input over Bluetooth. The best thing about the final product will be that you will be able to use the two screens independently. We still don’t know how independent your phone is going to be but one thing is for sure, you will at least see the caller ID on your phone’s screen.
Users might be intrigued with the pairing process which is quite different than what they would have seen previously. The laptop will allow use of the MediaTek Hotknot technology instead of the NFC coil. This setup is facilitated by the capacitive pad at the bottom right of the keyboard.
