CES 2016 | Lenovo Link brings the Android Smartphone to the PC display
The Lenovo Link can be connected to a PC via USB 3.0. The related App "Lenovo LINK 32 GB.exe" is available in the Google Play Store. It has to be installed on your Android smartphone. Once it is installed, the content of the smartphone can be displayed on your PC's or notebook's display. This allows, for example, editing documents on the smartphone with your PC keyboard and PC mouse.
In addition, it is possible to move files like tables, music, or videos from your smartphone to the computer and vice versa. According to Lenovo, Lenovo Link is easier to use than cloud storage. You can simply move files with drag & drop and it is not necessary to upload them or send them via e-mail. The concept is similar to the Windows Continuum. Microsoft offers an adapter for their Windows 10 smartphones Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, which allows connecting the smartphone to a PC display, mouse and keyboard. However, the Lenovo Link does not work independently from an operating system installed on the PC.
Lenovo Link is compatible with Android 5.0 or higher as well as with 7, 8, 8.1, and 10. The USB stick features 32 GB of internal storage. It will be available for $40 from March 2016.
