Are there any handheld devices with full desktop windows capabilities?

Just interested in knowing. I know many devices can use teamview to create the semblance of a windows desktop but are there any devices about the size of a phablet or phone that can do what a regular computer can?

I seem to recall a couple phones running full windows, although IIRC they were all basically garbage

the next closest thing I think is one of the 8" windows 8/8.1 tablets

There are a handful of new 8" Windows 8.1 tablets like the Dell Venue 8 Pro and the Toshiba Encore.

Edit: Also, there are handheld PC's like the Sony VAIO UX. Though, I'm unaware of any more modern models of handheld PC's.

Intel still hasn't given up on Atom based phones yet. If they can pull that off then I think those would be the smallest you could get while still being powerful enough to get something done since the older x86 phones never really amounted to anything.

you could also get something big enough to have easy control of, and then setup a vpn to your home computer..


ive done it a few times for the purpose of changing server files on the fly.. etc ...


havent messed with them, but my brother was mentioning the other day that there are more specialized vpn programs that help the phone mimic the mouse for computers, makes the vpn work more efficiently..

Asus, Samsung, Dell, and Sony make full Windows tablets. Some run Atom processors, some run core i series. I have a last-gen Atom powered device, and it still works incredibly well.

Steer clear of Acer's Iconia W3s. The Dell Venues have outstanding build quality for the price. If you have the dough, Surface Pro 2 is the way to go however.
