The Superbook is a shell that turns your Android smartphone into a complete laptop. Get the freedom of using just one computer.
Your smartphone is an incredibly powerful computer.
You already do a lot on your smartphone: it’s convenient, portable, and holds all of your apps, files, and contacts.
In fact, you could accomplish a lot more with it, but are often held back by its small screen size and limited mobile interface.
That’s why we created the Superbook – to remove those restrictions and give you the freedom of using just one computer.
What is the Superbook?
At its core, the Superbook is a smart laptop shell that provides a large screen, keyboard and multi-touch trackpad, 8+ hours of battery, and phone charging capabilities.
When plugged into your Android smartphone, it launches our app to deliver the full laptop experience.
Think of it as the ultimate accessory for your smartphone.
Whether you’re a creative, a student, a road warrior, a frequent flyer, or all of the above, the Superbook gives you the freedom to do more with the one computer that has everything—take off without your laptop, land anywhere and get to work without ever needing to sync your files or applications again.
Andromium isn’t the first company to attempt to leverage the power of a smartphone to provide the processing grunt of a laptop. In 2011, Motorola introduced its Atrix 4G smartphone, which was could be used as the engine for a laptop PC through the use of an external dock. More recently, a California-based startup unveiled system for giving Windows 10 devices a laptop form-factor. A successful crowdfunding campaign for Nexdock was concluded earlier this year, but it’s yet to go on sale.
Andromium itself made its first attempt at a fully-functioning phone-based workstation in 2014. Plugged into an MHL-compatible phone, it gave users the ability to plug in an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. Although it had potential, backers apparently weren’t keen on a connecting various peripherals via a tangle of USB and HDMI cables, and the Andromium Dock never reached its funding goals.
For it’s second attempt, Andromium has ditched the various peripherals and cables and packed everything into a 2-lb (900-g) laptop shell that connects to an Android smartphone via a single USB cable. The Superbook “laptop” packs an 11.6 inch LCD display with 1,366 x 768 resolution, full-size keyboard and built in trackpad.
