I am so excited that Samsung is finally creating a way to dock your phone and use it as a desktop. I know, I know they aren't the first. But it's Samsung were talking about. They're constantly pushing things out that others classify as "gimmicks." However, some of these products like the Gear VR are a hit. The technology now in these devices are definitely powerful enough to run a basic desktop environment.
I think it takes companies like Samsung to keep on trying new things to move the industry forward. While this isn't pushing any boundaries I do think this has some usefulness. Before I even knew DeX was a thing, I was using my laptop the other day and thinking how nice it would be that everything I did on my phone I could do on my PC. All my apps and settings would automatically be there. Especially with so many apps being mobile centric.
We'll have to wait and see what all Samsung will release with it. Providing value is key here. The value this is providing needs to match the price that is being charged. We already know they've teamed up with Microsoft to provide the tablet versions of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Still I'm excited for a new toy! Check out the video below that will show DeX in use.
