DisplayLink Shows Smart Phone as a Workstation With Multi-Display and Corporate Network Connectivity Both Wired and Wireless at Mobile World Congress 2015

BARCELONA, Spain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, is demonstrating an app that, combined with DisplayLink enabled docking stations, enables enterprises to dramatically transform Android smart phones or tablets into multi-screen productivity workstations. When connected to a dock through USB or WiFi and running available office productivity apps, the full potential of the phone in the enterprise can be unleashed with corporate LAN connection and full desktop connectivity. The solution is enabled by DisplayLink’s app and requires no hardware or special cables on the phone itself, truly delivering the best of both worlds, ultra-mobility and full desktop productivity. It will showcase at MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona March 3rd ~ 5th 2015 at the DisplayLink booth #7B33 in Hall 7.

“DisplayLink pioneered universal USB docking in the PC arena and with its global PC OEM partners has an installed base of millions of business, enterprise, and home users. With a simple app DisplayLink is opening a new class of productivity devices by extending the same benefits of PC docking to Android smartphones and tablets.” Said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, “We’re at the dawn of a new chapter of office productivity where users have choices that now include their Android smart phones and tablets functioning as workstation class PC’s. For IT professionals looking to deploy a universal docking solution, they now have a solution that seamlessly supports Windows and MAC PCs and soon Android Mobile phones and tablets.”

The solution is delivered as an app and requires no added cost or custom chipsets on the phone itself, it simply connects using standard USB cables or WiFi enabling an eco-system of new productivity opportunities for mobile phone companies, app developers, businesses and enterprises.

DisplayLink’s first version of the app will be available on Google Play Store mid 2015 and announcements on partnerships and products will be released later this year.
