Microsoft showed off some of the highlights of Windows 10 at its Build 2015 conference.

The software giant also explained how its Continuum feature works on the Windows Phone platform. Existing devices won't support this, Continuum will become available later this year when the first Windows 10 smartphones ship. Continuum enables you to connect your Windows Phone to a larger screen via HDMI (or another method), you can then add a keyboard plus mouse via Bluetooth to get an experience that comes close to what you get on a real desktop PC. You obviously don't get the full functionality of the desktop version of Windows but it looks like this could provide an easy way to get some office work done via your phone.
