YouTube user Christian Qantrell has tried to use his Galaxy Nexus smartphone as a desktop computer and the result is surprisingly good. He managed to replicate desktop functions by unrooting the Galaxy Nexus to a computer monitor with an MHL adapter and connecting an Apple keyboard and trackpad. This way he managed to replicate desktop functions without any hacking and he only used standard equipment.
The experience looks quite good and fluid. The trackpad works simply by a finger touch just like on a smartphone touchscreen and the keyboard gives the standard navigation buttons on desktop, such as the ‘Escape’ key for ‘back’ and ‘Alt+Tab’ to switch apps.
