The M1 is a fully featured BlackBerry 10 lapdock peripheral.
With NFC enabled, dropping your device inside the LED cradle will trigger Terminal Mode–a combination of Wifi Direct, Miracast, and Bluetooth Smart Ready.
Terminal Mode allows the BB10 OS to project a tailored, landscape experience for the larger 15″ touch sensitive screen. Overall, a more mature multitasking interaction in which you can run applications in tandem with 2 live apps running alongside BlackBerry Hub.
A docked BB10 device can function as a virtual track-pad with full gesture support. As well, if the mobile supports wireless charging the docking tray will also allow a wire-free charge while the M1 is connected through magnetic rapid charger.
This same device cradle is also encompassed by a blue LED indicator strip. The indicator will change colors to let you know about incoming notifications and will return to blue, indicating the devices are connected via Bluetooth.
Other Key Features:
Left of the device cradle you’ll see a hardware key to quickly access BB Hub, on the right there is a hardware key to force applications from their vertical orientation into full screen landscape.
A one fingered down-swipe from the top will bring down settings and music control, a two finger swipe down from the top will bring in an application overlay and allow you to launch new apps.
The M1Fuse is fully usable without the mobile being directly docked. Once the device is tapped on the NFC trigger and Terminal Mode is launched you can utilize the touchscreen on the lapdock to maneuver the OS.
