New Dell Mobile Connect software brings your mobile apps to PCs

Microsoft announces first mobile carriers to support Always Connected PCs

The Dell Mobile Connect app doesn't try to replace your PC with a phone, as Microsoft's Continuum or Samsung's DeX have tried to do.

Dell Mobile Connect will come pre-installed on all new Dell consumer PCs including XPS, Inspiron, Vostro, and Alienware PC's starting in January 2018.

Dell today announced a new solution called Mobile Connect that brings whole new level of integration between your smartphone and Dell PCs.

I saw a demo of the Mobile Connect app hooked up to an Android phone at a briefing last month, and it worked seamlessly. It allows you to check notifications, make or receive phone calls or texts, and even run your phone's Android apps on your PC through mirroring. If you initiated a phone call from your laptop, you'd be using the PC's microphone and speakers for your conversation.

If you don't have a Dell PC, you are stuck with Pushbullet, which is actually quite more than enough for most users.

Text messaging - send and receive SMS messages using your PC's keyboard.

"Dell Mobile Connect connects your phone and PC via a point-to-point secure connection, without going through the internet or Wi-Fi routers".

If the concept of Dell Mobile Connect sounds familiar, it's because the idea of harmonious functionality between a smartphone and larger computing devices is not a new thing. The company explained that Mobile Connect uses both Bluetooth and WiFi for its syncing magic. Dell's pitch is that you can keep your phone in your bag or anywhere within wireless range and never skip a beat-phone notifications will pop up on your PC, provided you want them to.

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.
