Watch the demo video of Continuum for Windows Phones

Microsoft has revealed Continuum for Windows Phones just a moment ago. Continuum is one of the major additions to Windows Phones – the feature allows users to connect their Windows Phone with a monitor/bigger display and use it as a real PC. As the apps are universal (and responsive), the apps will share the experience on your monitor from Windows Phone as it does on Windows 10 for desktops. Microsoft has posted a video talking about Continuum for Windows Phones, so take a look:

Microsoft Announces Continuum For Windows 10 Phones, Any Screen Can Deliver A PC Experience

Microsoft today announced the single most attractive feature that will be coming to Windows 10 for phones. Continuum for phones is here. What is it? You can start using your Windows 10 phone as a PC by connecting it to a display with a HDMI support. Yes, you can use all the phone apps on your big display. If it is a universal Windows app, you will have even better experience. For example, Word app started on a big display will have UI similar to Word app running on a PC.

Users will be able to use their phones as mouse pads, or actual bluetooth mice and keyboards.
This is also an attractive feature for developers to write a Windows Universal apps instead of an app ported from Android or iOS code.
Unfortunately the feature needs new hardware which supports dual-screens, and so will not come to existing handsets. It is not clear at this minute if x86 Windows Phones will be able to run desktop software, but this seems unlikely.
Will this feature be enough to encourage our readers to upgrade?
