Miraxess MiraDock is moving towards launching the MiraDock, its smartphone desktop docking station. The company behind the ill-fated Mirabook is already accepting pre-orders and hopes to start shipping the MiraDock later this month.

Miraxess has presented the MiraDock, a promising device that harnesses the power of a smartphone to create a desktop computer. Like the NexDock Wireless, the MiraDock is only compatible with devices that feature a built-in desktop mode, such as LG, Huawei, Motorola and Samsung. As its name suggests, the MiraDock serves as a way to connect an eligible smartphone to a desktop set-up rather than being a complete replacement like the NexMonitor. For reference, the MiraDock features the following ports:

  • 1x 3.5 mm audio
  • 1x HDMI
  • 1x Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1x MicroSD card reader
  • 1x SD card reader
  • 1x USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 2x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 3x USB Type-C

The dock itself connects to a smartphone via a USB Type-C port that protrudes from its front. Meanwhile, the back contains the dock's ports, including two video outputs. Please note that you must supply a monitor, keyboard and mouse separately. Currently, the MiraDock is available to pre-order on Miraxess' website for €139 before shipping and taxes.

At the time of writing, Miraxess hopes to begin shipping the MiraDock before the end of the month. It is worth stressing that Miraxess has a poor record of delivering its products. While the company sells its Mirabook laptop dock on its website and via Amazon, it failed to fulfil its Indiegogo campaign. Instead, the company has now promised to refund backers, nearly 5 years after it raised over £80,000 from just under 500 backers.
