Could this help Android x86 Lollipop feel more like a desktop?

If you've been following my post and articles, you may know by now that I've been running around with Android x86 on a Lonovo Thinkpad.

This morning I came across the Andromium OS app on the Google Play Store. This looked like the perfect add-on for my laptop environment, bringing the desktop feel to the Android OS.

They also show a video of how it all works. Of course they're doing via a docked phone, but I thought this could also be applied to a laptop.

They do have some recommended specification for using Andromium OS;

  • Snapdragon 800 or better processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 1080p external monitor
  • Required:
  • Kitkat 4.4.2 or above
  • Chromecast/Miracast or Adapter/Dock that allow external TV/Monitor attachment
  • Mouse/Keyboard (USB or Bluetooth)
  • Phone must be charging when trying to launch Andromium OS.
Let's see if this will do what I need it to....
