Its over four minutes of pure Pre goodness and now after things had calmed down in my mind its all of a frenzy again with desire and want for this amazing looking phone. Check out the video after the break, its well worth a look.

Microsoft files patent application, combines smartphone and desktop

Microsoft has filed a patent application for a device that bridges the gap between your desktop computer and your mobile phone. The device is essentially a microsoft-smart-interface-systemsmall  computer with its own CPU and OS, but when docked with a compatible mobile phone it can create a powerful computing platform, that can interface with a number of peripherals, including keyboard, mouse, monitor and others. The Patent Application titled “SMART INTERFACE SYSTEM FOR MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS DEVICES” sounds like a beefed up version of the Redfly desktop Smartphone Terminal that Celio was showing off at CES a couple of weeks ago.

This seems like a natural progression for computing as our mobile phones become more and more powerful. Just as laptops started out as lumbering expensive supplements to desktop computers, but now a laptop can replace a desktop in terms of cost, and speed. It’s easy to foresee a time when smartphones can also bridge that gap. Maybe this device will help herald in a new era of computing, one which a lot of us in the tech community have been waiting for for a long time.
