THE HAGUE, The Netherlands — April 28th, 2014 — The Dutch company Dock2Office is proud to announce a partnership with Splashtop Inc. in the Dock2Office Kickstarter campaign. The strengths of their products combined, create a groundbreaking solution that will change the way people use their tablets.
The Sphinx is the world’s first intelligent docking station that uses patent pending Dock2Office technology. This technology is about virtualizing input devices — by way of a cloud platform and remote desktop integration — so the tablet and iPad user can use a mouse and keyboard with their tablet to create a comfortable desktop experience.
Leendert van der Plas, Dock2Office CTO, said “The Sphinx is mainly developed for use with remote desktop solutions. Thanks to streaming technologies introduced by Splashtop, it’s possible to run business applications and complete remote desktops on our tablet. However, the lack of a mouse and full-sized keyboard makes it almost impossible to work on a tablet in this desktop environment. We offer the ultimate solution, and use Kickstarter to launch the Sphinx, our smart docking station. We are excited to partner with Splashtop, one of the leading companies in the remote desktop tablet market, as it shows their enthusiasm for our product.”
Mark Lee, Splashtop CEO, said “With the technology of Dock2Office, iPads and tablets become more powerful with the support for external mouse and keyboard. Our partnership changes the way how people use their tablets, to move beyond content consumption towards content creation.”
The partnership creates a unique and concrete offer for The Kickstarter backers of the Sphinx. They receive a redemption code for a six month subscription for Splashtop® Business. With Splashtop® Business you will be able to remotely access all of the applications and files on your PC and Mac, just as if you were sitting in front of your computer.
Dock2Office is committed to bringing the ultimate desktop experience with tablets and input devices without compromising ergonomics and compatibility.
Dock2Office envisions a public network with D2O technology enabled docking stations to be used in the home and in the office and also at a variety of Out Of the Home- locations such as hotels, airports, schools and flexible workplaces. This enables people to dock their tablet anywhere and get their work done, always and everywhere. For more information, visit http://dock2office.com
