A new Samsung patent reveals a way to turn Android phones into Windows PCs, with the help of an Andriod Docking station. From looking at the images included in the patent, it looks like Samsung is looking to trademark a docking apparatus for Android smartphones which allows it to swithc over to a Windows based OS when it is popped into a laptop like holder.

The patent is currently available here, showcasing how a Samsung phone, docks into the station and allows the device to automatically switch to a windows based OS and allow the user to control everything using the systems screen and keyboard, or an attached tracker pad. There also seems to be an option to use other operating systems in this docking station too.

Right now it is unknown if Samsung has already started creating this system or simply just has plans to create it, so right now we have no idea if or whn a product like this will exist, just that Samsung have patented the idea.

We already know that Microsoft is creating Windows 10 to easily adapt to different form factors, with it's Continuum feature, which could potentially make such a device very marketable, at least for Windows based phones. 

At this point it is anyone's guess if this idea will ever go anywhere, but all I can say is that this idea is a very interesting concept, at least one that definitely needs to be explored further.

Microsoft has already announced that the next generation of the high end Lumias will bear a type-c usb connector that will give an HDMI out-put, connect to a monitor and the phone will instantly become "desktop"Quote
