The Superbook is having a super Kickstarter campaign! Over 4502% funded, Andromium has secured over $2,252,500 from over 13,539 backers. Founded by Google and Y Combinator alumni and helmed by CEO Gordon Zheng, Andromium’s flagship hardware, the Superbook, is a plug-and-play shell that turns an Android smartphone into a complete laptop.
“2M? We’re speechless,” commented the team via Kickstarter. “A massive thank you to our wonderful backer community for your constant support, and for spreading the word like wildfire – and special thanks to those of you who have helped us grow the community through our referral program.”
Backers will share in the passing of Andromium’s 2M stretch goal and receive a Carbon Fiber skin for each ordered Superbook. In addition, the Blue Superbook, exclusive to Kickstarter backers of the Superbook Special has been unveiled.
As previously reported, Superbook aims to give users the freedom to do more without needing a laptop; there will be no need to sync files or applications again. To recap, users can web browse, answer emails, edit documents, create presentations, play games, and even write codes. The company also noted that all features and capabilities of Superbook will always be compatible with Samsung Galaxy/Note, LG, Nexus, HTC, Sony Xperia, Blu, Huawei (and many more), even if the user upgrades their Android phone.
Currently available on Kickstarter for $99, the Superbook will include a one connector cord. Those who opt for the special Super for $159 will be able to choice between Gold and Blue colors and will receive a connector cord, full accessories bundle and a universal side mount. The backers who go for the Superbook special will also be added to the Andromium Beta Access Club and have access to the new and experimental features of the company’s app. The company is aiming to unlock its 2.5M stretch goal perk, a 1080p + Backlit Option ($25 added cost upgrade, on top of 1080p upgrade). The SF-based startup’s campaign closes in four days, on 20 .
