[quotemsg=16740650,0,149725][quotemsg=16740194,0,570460]I'm guessing this desktop ability is unique to the 950 and it's USB 3.1 port. Older phones may be able to upgrade to Win 10 Mobile, but will they get the ability to do this as well? Methinks not, unfortunately.[/quotemsg]
Probably not for most as it probably needs a certain bandwidth to support HDMI or DP out as well as HDCP support.
It is a new tech so I think we will probably have to wait and see. I am excited for it. Might move from my S6 to one of these but I also want wireless charging. It is nice to not have to worry about plugging it in and just sitting it down on the wireless charger.[/quotemsg]
Continuum support is pretty much baked into Windows 10. Basically, if a touchscreen convertible, laptop, or 2-in-1 device supports Windows 10, it supports Continuum.
Granted, it's my understanding that Continuum *may not* be supported on all handsets. I'm not sure if this is 100% true--Microsoft has been cagey about giving me clear answers on that front--but it makes sense. Continuum seems like something that a lower-end handset would struggle with.
For example, Microsoft notably made no mention of Continuum support on the low-end Lumia 550 announced today. I'm guessing the omission was intentional.
What can help is if you start with the list of phones that will support Windows 10: http://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2015/03/27/a-quick-update-on-windows-10-builds-for-phones-for-windows-insiders/
Only phones on that list will support Continuum, because Continuum is part of Windows 10. Some of the phones on that list that support Windows 10 may not support Continuum.
Anyway, that's a good question. We'll see about some answers.
