Continnum is one of Microsoft's products which acts as a mediator/Interface between a Windows mobile device and a PC.

Turning a Windows Mobile device into a PC through Continnum is not the first device to do so in the market, as the various tech giants like Asus, Motorola, and Canonical have been working on this development.

Asus has created various PadFones with which we can connect a mobile device(Android) to a PC. Follow this link to learn more about PadFones by Asus.
