In terms of gadgets, smaller is usually better. Technology company spend more time and money in order to create some of the world’s smallest, sleekest and most lightweight devices. Early next week, however, the giant technology will change gears entirely when it introduces its 58-inch Table Connect for iPhones, the biggest smart phone device you will ever see.
The Table Connect is basically a desktop with iPhone functionality. The huge multi-touch screen is equipped with a 30-pin Dock Connector that lets users hook it up directly to their iPhone. When attached, the Table Connect mirrors everything that is happening on the handset. All of the applications and data that are on the phone can be accessed using the 58″ capacitive multi-touch desktop. With a bit of magic, the table becomes your iPhone.
Table Connect States:
We are about to put the final touches on the “iPhone Table” prototype. Table Connect for iPhone is what you have been waiting for, multitouch on steroids!
For now, we start with mock-ups as well. Currently, we are finishing up the work on the alpha release software for the table.
The iPhone is attached via the standard dock connector – immediately after it is attached, the magic starts to happen. The entire content of the iPhone’s screen will be projected onto the multitouch table, still giving full access to all the touch gestures using multitouch technology.
Just by looking at pictures of the Table Connect for iPhone, we assume it will probably be out of the price range of most consumers.
