According to the campaign, Andromium’s key mission is to democratize the desktop by making it more affordable and highly accessible. By doing this the company has seamlessly turned Android devices into a desktop computer. Not only is it affordable, it is easy to use: simply install the app and plug your smartphone into the dock.
Explaining the hardware, the Andromium stated that its dock embodies sleek, clean design and combines the best aesthetics, which are beautiful, ergonomic, and pleasing to use. “We built Andromium dock with you in mind. We include three full-sized USB ports for all the accessories you would need on a desktop computer, including gaming devices. We’ve also integrated a port for a power cord, so your phone is always charged.
“We specifically designed the dock with portability in mind. We’ve given it a light, durable, travel friendly design with a flip cover to cover it during transport. On top of this, the dock has been designed so to figure your device without having to remove its simple protective case.”
Gordon Zheng, who was previously a senior engineer at Google, is the mastermind behind the Andromium software. He left the popular search engine to pursue his dream of making handheld desktops a reality. He has created an Android application and the completely Andromium Operation System (OS). The OS works in synergy with the dock.
The team noted, “The [Andromium] application integrates seamlessly with your phone, and can be entered and exited simply. While in desktop mode, your phone can still receive calls, text messages and push notifications – so you keep its complete original functionality.
“The User Interface is receiving a completely updated redesign to make it even friendlier. We’ve built out all the functionality, and we’re ecstatic with how it works. We’ve teamed up with some of the best User Interface and User Experience designers in the industry to take Andromium’s aesthetics up to the quality of its performance. Adopting the best elements of Windows 7 and OSX UI paradigms, we’re creating a sleek, intuitive experience that highlights Andromium’s functionality and power.”
Andromium is designed for the most popular series in Android phones, the Samsung Galaxy. It works with both the Galaxy S and Note series (S3 – 2GB RAM version, S4, Note2, Note3, Note4). Currently S5 does not fit in the dock due to the USB port cover, but rest assured – we are supporting S5 also, via Chromecast.
Since its debut on the crowdfunding giant’s platform, Andromium has scored over $40,000 thanks to nearly 815 backers. It is set to close on January 25th.
