And I got a taste of sexy when Samsung sat some of us down to a demo of SideSync, an application that bridges the gap between your Samsung Android smartphone and the Samsung ATIV PC. Basically it allows you to connect both devices to allow you to see on the PC the exact same screen you have on your smartphone, drag and drop files between both devices, and back up important items on your phone to the PC.
This is a summary of SideSync's features.
Phone Screen Sharing
The exact same image of your smartphone is replicated on one part of your PC screen (in fact, it is intelligent enough to even detect the model of your smartphone; the phone image on the PC mirrors the look of your smartphone). You can resize the phone screen on the PC and drag it either to the left or right side of your PC screen to suit your working style. Flip your phone to landscape orientation and its mirror image on the PC does the same.
Keyboard and Mouse Sharing
Your smartphone becomes an additional display. Files can be moved between the PC and the phone using either the keyboard or mouse. And, you can now type on a full-sized keyboard or move files around
Every time you connect to SideSync, your mobile content (contact, calendar, tasks, SMS/MMS, SMS/MMS settings, memos, logs, native applications, music, photos, videos, and many more are backed up safely and securely. This happens even while the phone's battery is being charged.
Here are some things you can already do with SideSync:
* Reply to SMS from the phone screen on your PC. This allows you to continue looking at your PC screen where you are doing other work instead of picking up your phone to reply.
* Seamlessly share music, videos, photos, games and files between the PC and smartphone just by dragging and dropping. Files are saved in designated folders for easy retrieval. Imagine playing Candy Crush on your bigger PC screen! :-)
* Draw on the virtual phone on your PC using the mouse and capture screen
SideSync will work with:
PC: Samsung ATIV PCs (ATIV TAB, ATIV BOOK, ATIV ONE)
Phone: Sansung Android phone or tablet running Jelly Bean OS and above)
Try out the Samsung SideSync technology at any of the latest Samsung shops (SM Dasmarinas, SM Lanang, SM Bacoor, SM GenSan, SM North Annex, Ayala Mall Centrio CDO, SM Cebu and Festival Mall).
