CoolPad is the simplest, most compact docking station for your new tablet. Connect it to a monitor or TV, it becomes a capable desktop replacement. It features a vital cooling system, while also integrating a full-sized keyboard, various ports, and a built-in power supply. The tablet touchscreen replaces the mouse as the main input device, but keeps the functionality of a virtual mouse as a part of its versatile and customizable interface. Additionally, the dock’s form factor lets you fold it and set it aside when not in use, as you would a gaming console, or any other peripheral.
Processors in phones and tablets are now as fast as those in notebooks, and quickly closing in on desktop-level speeds. The main drawback is the limited heat dissipation, which prevents sustained peak performance. CoolPad original design allows ventilation across the entire back of your tablet, providing temperature regulation for the heat-intensive components, usually situated at the center of the device, as well as for its large batteries. The tablet can even power up additional cores when docked.
Connectivity is already an essential part of your device, and CoolPad complements it with an array of ports you would expect to find on a desktop system. designed by Sebastian Popa, CoolPad has built-in power supply that is kept small by taking advantage of the tablet’s batteries, which can provide an extra kick on intensive tasks, and get recharged when the system is idling. The keyboard can afford good travel distance for the keys, as it is not limited by the thickness requirements of a notebook or two-in-one device.
Price may be the main advantage of a system like the one presented here; you buy only one set of core components for what is basically two devices. And having a neat, space-effective setup for your desk is a nice bonus.
