Made by InFocus Corporation, the world’s smartest and smallest Windows 10 Mobile DesktopTM Kangaroo, is debuting at $99. This is a new device that can give you complete access to all your Windows 10 desktop files and programs once you connect it to a mouse, keyboard, and monitor or even iPad.

With Kangaroo, you enjoy the fullness of a desktop computer and the smallness of a normal cell phone. Kangaroo uses the Intel Cherrytrail™ (Z8500) SOC and can be used with a dock that can be accessed through ports by USB and HDMI. You only need to pair a Kangaroo Dock to PC monitors or large, flat TVs and even projectors to enjoy complete access to Windows 10, Microsoft Office, and other private files.
“Consumers own many different devices including tablets, laptops and desktop PCs. Each device is used in different locations for different purposes. Kangaroo is the first product to allow you to use the same PC for all applications, in any environment,” said Lawrence Yen, director of Kangaroo product marketing. “Unlike stick PCs and other pocket PCs, Kangaroo works with all of your existing devices and can be docked at home or tossed in your bag to use anywhere, powering and providing Windows 10 access on the go.”
Peter Han, Vice President of Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp. has more to add: “Innovative solutions such as the InFocus Kangaroo built on Windows 10 delivers great flexibility at a reasonable price, helping customers to be even more productive while on the go.”
You can stream live media on Kangaroo by connecting it to a TV or HDMI in order to enjoy the best of digital entertainment, and the newly integrated Windows Hello makes it easy to use embedded fingerprint reader to access login pages without the need to input passwords every time.
With 32GB storage that can be upgraded, Kangaroo comes in a black aluminum color case. The device will be great to extend the features of existing devices, screens, and hardware or apps, and its battery can last four hours without charging. Meanwhile, it is also possible to enjoy remote access with the Kangaroo by using the hardware Action Switch, enabling users to access Windows 10 desktop with no WIFI.
“We wanted to create something that is incredibly affordable, portable and allows you to access Windows 10 and all of your files – from work to media – on any device,” Yen said. “You can access any file, any time without worrying about access to a network, upload and download times or file corruption. With its power, capacity and features, Kangaroo will change the definition of mobile computing.”
Experts are still working to make a Kangaroo Monitor available at a future time, and this will include a dedicated storage and expanded port docks. You can obtain your Kangaroo at Newegg.com but by mid-November, it will be available everywhere and on Microsoft Store Online. Yes, for only $99.
