Nanoport joins three phones together to create seamless tablet

nanoportIf you thought that the Dragonfly Futurefon was cool then strap in for a way to connect 3 smartphones together to create a flexible tablet-style device.

The cleverness of Nanoport come via an intelligent magnetic hardware and software combination which gives you the ability to connect phones, magnetically, so they can share data or become one giant screen.

The Nanoport magnetic connector was shown off as a model at CES last January and will be returning as a full working model this coming January, according to reports.

The Nanoport will allow users to connect their phones to share data but also to become a bigger and better screen. Perhaps you have an old phone or are with someone who isn’t using theirs – connect the two and you have a double screen for easy page turning while reading books. Or connect three together for a widescreen movie watching experience.

Then you have to consider variations in screen size and resolution as being potential issues too. Also will there be a specific phone that comes out with the Nanoport already built-in? Could this system also work with tablets?

There’s no denying that this is a really cool idea but there’s still much to clear up before I will allow myself to get too excited about it.

Hopefully all will be revealed at CES in January 2015.
