” Maru packs a complete desktop experience on your smartphone. Your phone runs independently of your desktop so you can take a call and work on your big screen at the same time. Personal computing couldn’t be simpler “


PictureWhen you’re at your desk, Maru is your desktop. It brings you true multitasking and desktop productivity in a lightweight package. Peek under the hood and you’ll find rock-stable Debian Linux, so you can customize it to your heart’s content.
    Maru automatically detects when an external display is available and spins up your desktop. It boots in less than 5 seconds. Any Android-compatible bluetooth peripherals will work with Maru.

     Maru takes advantage of your HDMI screen to bring you multi-app, desktop-class productivity. Create a spreadsheet, perfect your slide deck, or spiffy up your resume. You’ll never believe you could get so much done with your “phone”.
     It takes personal computing one step closer to closed-loop. Your hardware’s capabilities are shared across your mobile device and desktop so you don’t have to context-switch around so much. Say goodbye to coordinating your work among dozens of different devices. SD card data like camera photos and downloads are shared so you can coordinate your work seamlessly. Your network, whether WiFi or cellular, is shared between mobile and desktop. Never deal with spotty tethering hotspots again. Maru opens up a whole new world of possibilities.


Nothing’s stopping you from installing the tools you need to make Maru your own. Set up a portable development environment, fill out that annoying form that doesn’t render properly on your mobile browser, or even run a webserver–it’s really up to you.
