Welcome to a new way of working... and playing!

This book is about “the next big thing” in computing and mobile telephony: the convergence of your mobile phone and your personal computer (PC) into a single device; made possible by Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile operating system, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL flagship phones, and the Microsoft Display Dock that helps form the Continuum (yes, the upper-case ‘C’ is intentional) from mobile phone to PC so that your mobile phone can become The PC in Your Pocket.

While this book serves as a kind of buying guide and usage guide for the two aforementioned phones, it is also applicable to other past, present and future Lumia phones that are compatible with Windows 10 Mobile. And while you will likely find the content useful in helping you use these phone as… huh, phones… the focus is firmly on the new usage scenarios afforded by the Windows 10 “Continuum” features.

This book is not for nerds who need to know the in-depth details of the Windows 10 Mobile operating system. "The PC in Your Pocket" is aimed at individual and corporate phone (and PC) users who have been using Android, Apple or previous Lumia phones and who may be wary about returning to the Microsoft camp, but who are potentially excited by the potential big benefits of having a one-size-fits-all phone device that acts as the PC in Your Pocket.

Topics include...

1 - Who Needs a PC in Their Pocket
2 - Introducing the Lumia Flagship Phones
3 - A Whistle-Stop Tour of Windows 10 Mobile
4 - Unveiling the Universal Apps
5 - From Phone to Desktop with (and without) the Microsoft Display Dock
6 - The Phone to Desktop Continuum
7 - PC in Your Pocket Case Study
8 - Your Head in the Cloud
9 - Other Lumia Phone Features
10 - Join the Band
