There are many ways to use your Android as a PC, This is just one of them and a nice one too. 

Did you ever tried something like this guys? Do you think Android will completely replace the PC in the future?

My love for Android started when I got my HTC Hero (currently running CM7.1) and never looked back. Now I own an HTC One X (running AOKP). I started this website to help my friends with their new phones but for my surprise the website quickly started to grow and now I'm happy to help much more Android enthusiasts all over the world. I have an amazing wife + two cats and on my free time I write songs and play guitar as a hobby.

  1. I am planning to do the experiment with the Note 2 and the Multimedia Dock. Beginning on 24.12.2012 til 6.01.2013 I will only use my Note 2 for Blogging, Surfing the web, Email and so on. Setup will include full size usb keyboard, mouse and Monitor via HDMI. And yes, i think, this will be the future of computing. Might be some years from now but  the concept itself is already valid.

  2. I still require PC, Windows for access to my employer's site using Silverlight (stupid).
    Although i just learned eHUB has an android app that I can at least view my paystubs

  3. I hooked my Thrive 10" to my 23" monitor the other day along with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.  It was just like sitting at my PC.  I even played angry birds.  I think that in a few years, we could very well see Android replacing the PC.

    To me, to make this work, Google needs the following:

    1) Domain Authentication: Let me log into my network domain
    2) Printing: I need to be able to print

    Imagine being able to take your 10" (or 7") tablet, drop it in a dock at your desk.  You already have your keyboard/mouse and monitor as well as your gigabit ethernet connected to the dock.  You have a meeting, you pick it up out of the dock, it switches back to your wireless corporate network and you go to a meeting, taking notes on your tablet or pulling up emails/reports/etc.

    That would be fantastic!

  4. Thanks guys! If you like the floating browser you saw in the video you can try this: http://goo.gl/QL0Dp works great for me. 
    Also, with this cool app: http://goo.gl/Dj1HV you can remote control your PC really easily. Trying it now and it looks nice.

    +Uwe Hauck This is going to be a very interesting experiment, Please let me know how it works for you. I'm in the middle of the same experiment myself now but with the Asus Transformer tablet, It has a keyboard dock and with a mouse it works really nice for me – WordPress app is great and almost every browser have an option to ask for the desktop version of websites. I'll post my full thoughts soon.

    +Tiffy Fone Take a look at the second link in this comment, Maybe this can solve your lake of Windows problem?

    +Droidaphile That was my first thought too ;-)

    +Bill Wehnert I'm not sure about your first point but printing is not a problem, I also needed to print so I searched a bit about this and I'll make a post soon. In short: you can print through Google print cloud but you need a computer to be connected to the printer and the web. It wasn't good enough for me so I searched and found this: http://goo.gl/84QKR and this: http://goo.gl/KbSUx which solved all my prints problems.

  5. +Android Newbies I've used PrintShare Mobile – I got the full version as a free app from Amazon in their "Free App of the Day" last year.  I like it because I can print to a network printer without having it shared via another PC.  I still think Google needs to build this into the OS.  I want it seamless to print from anything. :)

  6. How do you tell Navigation on Galaxy Note 2 to use kilometers and meters? I am not an American but I live in New Jersey. I did change the time to 24h and temperature to °C but I can't change the units for distance.
