Dell Mobile Connect brings your calls, texts and notifications to your PC

Dell intends to preload its Mobile Connect software on new consumer and small business PCs. "To increase convenience and productivity, Dell is the first PC maker to introduce a software solution that enables complete wireless integration between Dell PCs and smartphones (iOS and Android)", Dell wrote in a press release. Well, Dell today announced Dell Mobile Connect, a new app which will sync text messages and phone calls (both on iOS and Android) to new Dell Inspiron, XPS, or Vostro that the company announced at CES today (via The Verge). You get to choose which notifications you receive, and you can respond and interact directly from the PC (answer calls, reply to messages, use apps) without touching your phone. "All your phone data could only be accessed on your paired PC while you are in range", Dell says. Dell Moblile Connect apps are available for iOS 10 and above, Android 5 and above devices.

Why Does This Sound Familiar?

It is similar to Apple's feature that connects Macbook and iPhones seamlessly.

Michael Wolff appeared Monday on MSNBC's " Morning Joe " to discuss " Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House ". And an unnamed CNN employee quoted by The Hill said Mr Miller was then escorted out by security.

"Your connection is only accessible on the PC when you are present and the communication remains secure through a point-to-point connection, never going through the internet or Wi-Fi routers", Dell said on its website.

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. The phone is still a phone, and the PC is still a PC, each with their own respective functionality and operating systems intact. If Dell can expose this feature to more users, that's a great thing for its computers' usability (though users will still have to install a companion app on their phone).

Screen mirroring - mirror your phone's screen onto your PC and engage with any of the apps through your PC's mouse, keyboard, and touch screen.
