New Dell Mobile Connect software brings your mobile apps to PCs

But, as expected, functionality is limited on iPhone - you can only receive and start calls and messages - apps are limited to Android, which will even show a mirror of your phone. On the software side, busy techies are sure to look forward to Dell Mobile Connect, an application that allows PCs to mirror the screens of Android or iOS devices via a wireless connection. Take note that the page states that Dell does not "guarantee that this app will run on all Android devices".

"When you're in a PC mode and you're working or learning or consuming content in that mode, Dell Mobile Connect keeps you in that frame instead of taking you out of it to switch back and forth to your phone". With an LG V30 smartphone connected to Dell's new XPS 13 (2018 model), we were able to make a hands-free phone call, participate in a Skype call, and fiddle with Google Maps.

We had an opportunity to try out Dell Mobile Connect ourselves when we met with Dell in NY last month.

Although these are inherently different deployments, and the Windows-based Qualcomm devices and Intel's investment in eSIM and LTE technologies are centered around connectivity and security and battery life, Dell's Mobile Connect seems to solve numerous same problems-but without the emphasis on power saving and security, or the need to buy a new, expensive device.
