[dba-Tech] Another OS but different

Hi Shamil,

I was wrong!  :-(  It turns out that the free dock was only for the 950 XL, not the 950.

This is the site:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/mobile/microsoft-display-dock-offer/

 Hi Dan --

Thank you for your hint.

But I have bought Microsoft Lumia 950 DS from one of the local dealers (key.ru) - I doubt I may pretend on any "free cheese" from them or from Microsoft (https://www.microsoft.com/ru-ru/mobile/phone/lumia950-dual-sim/)...

Could you please clarify where information on "free cheese" Microsoft Display Dock proposal ( https://www.microsoft.com/ru-ru/mobile/accessory/hd-500/ ) is published? Is this proposal available worldwide?

BTW, there are *no* official Microsoft Inc. offices here in Russia - there is here just "Microsoft RUS" Ltd. -  http://rubrikator.org/russia/saint-petersburg/maykrosoft-rus

Thank you.

>If you bought your 950 before the end of January, you may be able to get a free dock if you request it by the end of February.  MS says limited quantities.  Good Luck!

>Yes, it looks interesting.
>BTW, Microsoft Lumia 950 with Win10 (I have got it purchased last week) has the same feature - it is able to be docked to a large screen and to an external real keypad and to have its Windows Universal Apps (including Office suite apps) adapted their UI "automagically". I haven't tried it yet - purchasing the docking hardware (a small box) is the next step for me planned for this March.

>>As Smartphones continue to increase in hardware and performance; 64bit ARM multi-cored 4-6 and  64GB of RAM, it has become apparent that our phones are no longer pocket calculators but computers that may very well match or surpass the capabilities of any other computer we have.
>>To that end here is a great new OS for our smartphones called Maru:  http://maruos.com
>>Right now it is only tested for the latest Nexus smartphone and the Operating System is only in Beta but this is the start. See link to the designers/developers blog:  http://bit.ly/1Xo7fhD
>>Aside: One feature I particularly like is that once the OS is installed on the phone all the crapware is gone. I have not personally seen this OS being used but have heard it is very fast.
