Now in its final beta version, the ScreenShare Browser by Spring Design extends a mobile phone’s web browsing, email, and video content to the larger, easier-to-read screen of Android tablets.
The app lets smartphones and tablets connect via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or mobile hotspots for dual screen two-way interactions. Users can leverage a smartphone's SD storage, camera, 3G/4G cellular link, GPS and voice/text communication capabilities by syncing content and interface from the smartphone to the tablet.
Users can use the tablet anytime for browsing, email and video even if the device has no cellular connection.
Viewing content on a tablet with energy-efficient design may also allow smartphone batteries to last longer. (For best battery conservation, the manufacturer recommends working with a tablet that supports reliable Bluetooth connections.)
Spring Design, creator of the electronic Alex Reader, used the same technology to create its browser sharing app. The release supports any phone and tablet running Android OS 2.3+, 3.x and 4.x.
