At its Windows 10 hardware event today in New York City, Microsoft unveiled the Display Dock. This accessory extends your Windows 10 phone into a PC-like experience, though it reportedly will cost $99.
I love what Microsoft announced on October 6th: the new high end Lumia smartphones are now capable of becoming your PC, but you’ll need this little dock, and it ain’t cheap.
$99 is a lot for what essentially is a way to connect a monitor. Most users will connect a wireless keyboard and mouse, so I wonder how this can be so expensive.
I can’t wait for chinese copycats to show their capabilities, but there will be other alternatives. Months ago Belkin announced their new USB-C cables (DisplayPort and HDMI versions included), and others will follow.
Nice try, though, Microsoft.
