Last month, the California startup took to the crowdfunding giant’s platform last month to raise only $50,000 for the device, which is described as a smart laptop shell that consists of an 11.6″ HD screen, keyboard, and multi-touch trackpad. Superbook offers over 8 hours of battery, phone charging capabilities and will always be connected through the user’s phone data, Wifi, and Bluetooth. The creators of the device revealed it gives users the freedom to do more without needing a laptop, and there will be no need to sync files or applications again. 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.
The Superbook basic (which will be gold) is available on Kickstarter for $99 and will include a one connector cord. Those who get 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.
Just hours before the campaign’s closing, Team Andromium stated:

Estimated delivery date for the Superbook is for the beginning of 2017.
