Samsung Patent Reveals a Way to Change Android Phones

Samsung has filed for an Android station that turns smartphones into Windows laptops.
The tech company wants to trademark a docking apparatus that allows an Android-based smartphone or tablet to switch over to Windows when popped into the holder. The station, which was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and first spotted by PatentlyMobile, is equipped with a keyboard and display.
In order for it to work, the smartphone would need to run both Android and Windows. After placing the device (presumably some kind of future Galaxy phone) into the station, the systems would connect and then automatically switch on a Windows mode, allowing users to control and view everything via the attached screen and keyboard.
