Razer Project Linda Turns Your Phone Into a Laptop
Jan 10 2018 by Joanne Wise
Having the Razer phone docked into the laptop also charges the phone thanks to a built in power bank, ensuring that you're ready to take the phone on the road as soon as you're done with your gaming session. Razer and Netflix have now partnered to equip the Razer Phone with HDR video playback and Dolby Digital 5.1 audio support in through the Netflix app.
Gaming-focused computer veteran Razer has made a habit of demonstrating ambitious, droolworthy or just outright insane concepts at major trade shows like CES, so we can't say we're shocked to see Project Linda aiming to bridge the gap between mobile devices and laptops this year.
Have you ever wanted to just work from your phone, or even play the same games on your phone on a real computer?
Unfortunately, Project Linda is still very much in the prototype phase, with no release date or price point in sight. It turns on when you put your Razer Phone inside the empty space where you generally find a touchpad on other laptops. As of now, it is unclear when Project Linda will hit the market.
The HyperX Flight takes Kingston’s headsets to new levels
The Razer Phone is the first smartphone from the company, and it has attracted quite some attention with the industry's first 120Hz display in a smartphone and dual-amplified front-facing stereo speakers along with powerful hardware. A mouse can also be connected for more precise control.
Designed for mobility, the unibody CNC aluminum chassis of Razer Project Linda is just 0.59-inch (15 mm) thin and weighs under three pounds (1.25 kg) including the docked phone. The keyboard on Project Linda is backlit and is powered by Razer Chroma which should make Razer loyalists feel right at home. However, for sound output, it relies on Razer Phone's speakers as it doesn't have any built-in speaker, and, it only works with Razer Phone and not any other Android smartphone. With Project Linda, Razer aims to provide an experience that blends "the familiar Android environment with the ease-of-use of a laptop".
As one of the few companies in the world to straddle user interfaces, laptops and smartphones, Project Linda is a groundbreaking concept that blurs the lines between the smartphone and the laptop.
"Project Linda combines the best of both worlds, bringing a larger screen and physical keyboard to the Android environment, enhancing the experience for gaming and productivity", he said.
Google sued for discriminating against white men
In September, three female former Google employees filed a lawsuit against the company, saying it discriminates against women. Google terminated Gudeman in 2016 after he made comments suggesting a Muslim colleague had a link to terrorism.

Rott added that it is not known whether Zinke will exempt other states whose governors protested the drilling along their shores. Gov Scott cheered the decision, saying he would "never stop fighting for Florida's environment and our pristine coastline".
