Mating the ORB to Android
« on: February 22, 2018, 08:26:38 pm »
What a perfect mobile setup if we could get the ORB to connect to an Android phone.    I recently purchased a MS Surface Book 2, and was disappointed to find that there were no usb ports on the detachable screen. 

What a waste of such a powerful machine.  I understand saving space, but having all this computing power and not being able to attached any devices when it's running as a "tablet" seems like a lost opportunity to me. 

Oh well, just flipping the screen around still allows it to work great with the ORB and detaching the screen I still can use remotehams fine with a headset or just through the built in mic with decent reports.

The Surface Book isn't Android. Yes I agree the MS Surface is a waste especially when other tablets have had full size USB2 ports for years.
