Wouldn’t it be an amazing experience to have a gadget/smartphone that serves as a hybrid laptop/desktop PC/ and tablet? Well, Dell stack would have been the magic if only the project wasn’t cancelled. It wasn’t just a phone but a pocket-sized device powerful enough to en-capsular a whole ecosystem of devices.
At a time when most smartphones offer some sort of cloud sync features (snap a photo on your phone and it’s automatically backed up to the internet, purchase music from iTunes and it’s automatically available on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac), Dell Stack seems like a kind of anti-cloud phone. There’s no need to sync your files between devices if your phone is the brains of all your devices.
Nowadays, smartphones don’t function well if there aren’t syncing all files through cloud, I mean you can’t even take a photo without it getting backed up automatically over the internet or talk more of music you’d have to purchase on iTunes and they get stored on any of your smart devices and can’t be transferred to any brand. But if this Smartphone had been unveiled it would have been the exact opposite of all these as it was made to be the brain of all devices.
What outstanding features could the Dell stark possible have that makes it worth the while? Well, it’s a 6.4-inch phone with about 3.5 watts worth of power; it also has an Intel Kaby Lake-Y series processor. The magical thing about this phone was that although it had 3.5-watt worth power when its plugged into the dock of a desktop it amplifies the power to the level of 12 watts.
Dell Stack was designed to support 4GB to 8GB of RAM, 128GB to 256GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for removable storage.While Dell Stack would be able to run full Windows desktop software thanks to its x86 processor, it’d also be able to function as a phone.
However, rumour has it that Dell still has plans to unveil this gadget but it won’t is the 6.4 size instead it would be 7 inches which would make it a tablet and no longer a smartphone. This wouldn’t be the first attempt on such innovation. Examples of such includes; Asus Padfone and Motorola Atrix 4G devices. But the difference is this were all Android products whereas the Dell stark runs on Windows.
