Only a concept for now, the Acer Extend is a laptop without a brain -- it instead uses your phone's processor to run your programs.
BERLIN -- We're out at the IFA tech showcase in Germany and we've cast our eyes over the Acer Extend. Just a concept for now, the Extend is effectively a laptop without a brain. It connects to your smartphone, using the phone's processor to run apps.
With the keyboard and larger screen, it makes it much easier to do work from your phone than simply tapping away at the onscreen keyboard. The top row of keys are hot keys for Android functions like Wi-Fi and settings.
