Next Up for NexDock: Intel Compute Card To Go

Last year, NexDock launched its first product, which turned stick and mini-PCs and even Windows 10 smartphones into a laptop. But now the company is jumping on board with the Intel Compute Card for an even svelter new NexDock device.

NexDock reached out to me today to let me know about its plans, which do indeed sound interesting. It also provided some information about the success of its first product, which raised $360,000 in crowdfunding and was delivered to over 3,000 customers in 60 countries around the world. (And did so despite a terrible factory fire.)

For 2017, NexDock will focus on the innovative new Intel Compute Card, on which Thurrott.com bestowed a Best of CES 2017 award.

“We are thrilled to announce that we started working on the new NexDock based on the just announced innovative Intel Compute Card,” NexDock’s Emre Kosmaz told me. “As one of Intel’s initial regional partners for the Intel Compute Card, the new NexDock will be the first docking unit that supports the Intel Compute Cards in 2-in-1 laptop form.”

Details are still a bit light, but here’s what we can expect:

  • Active cooling
  • Ergonomic design
  • Built-in kickstand
  • Interchangeable USB-C modules
  • Continued support for other device types, including Windows 10 smartphones with Continuum, Raspberry Pi, and more

NexDock expects to ship the new device sometime in mid-2017.

“NexDock is only the beginning of our vision,” I was told. “We plan on expanding the product range with additional NexDock models with variety of sizes and form factors. By separating processor and OS from the displays, we are hoping to start a paradigm shift in consumer electronics, which will enable less electronic waste for environment and longer lasting computers.”
