The future of iOS is Android based. Already 90% of “iPhones” sold in China are Android copies. Chinese Smartphone factories already sell their 4.7″ “iPhone 6″ for only $77 running Android, thus support for a couple million Android apps, maybe someone ports all iOS apps to Android in the future. Anyways, this is thin and as Apple would do, it does not offer a removable battery, use Apple’s lightning connector instead of MicroUSB, it does have an internal MicroSD card slot though, but you need to use tiny screwdrivers to get to it. This copy configuration comes with a basic WVGA display, a very basic camera (extremely basic), and I think they cut a few more corners when itcomes to the CPU they use the entry-level MT6572 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali-400 GPU, 512MB of RAM and a little bit of ROM. It is not guaranteed that the real iPhone 6 will look exactly like it, I think a Shenzhen smartphone designer used what he could find on the online rumor photoshop sites to make thisone. Apple is rumored to release iPhone 6″ with a 4.7″ and 5.5″ or larger display at some point later this year. The Apple factories are around China but the main ones are in Shenzhen I think, the same city in which I found this phone for sale for $77 (470RMB Chinese money). I think Android copies own 90% of iPhone market share in China (not to mention Android probably owns 98% of all Smartphones sold in China), because most Chinese consumers don’t like to and can’t be paying 10x more for the official real iPhone.

Netronix puts Wacom touch on a 6.8″ 1440×1080 E Ink Android e-reader based on the Freescale i.MX6 Solo Lite. Wacom is working on collaborative solutions for Wacom enabled E Ink e-readers like this one. If they do it right, I think Google should get involved, this could make it a really big new market for the E Ink based devices with touch for productive collaboration in education and enterprise. Netronix also has different other E Ink Android devices, secondary displays, large ones, and even the Netronix E Ink Smartwatch which I filmed here.

Last year, I posted a 48-minute tour at the faytech touchscreen factory.
Here is the latest version (V.2) of faytech´s 7”-12″” Touchscreen Monitor Series has numerous detail improvements including lockable standard connections, a unique cable channelling back cover and mounting frames for machine and wall mount integration. Additionally each model has faster start up and reaction times because of an improved controller chipset.
The series retains its features including: LED backlights, 4-wire resistive touch panel, extra robust components, extended current input (8-36V), VGA+HDMI ports, three video inputs, wall mountable, a high-quality pedestal, and extended temperature range. Each Touchscreen Monitor comes with faytech’s 100% guarantee of no defective pixels, and is suitable for 24/7 operation.
The high resolution support (e.g. 1080p, 1920×1200 pixels) of these faytech touchscreens make them the perfect choice for a wide variety of applications. Some of these include: use as a surveillance monitor when combined with a HTPC or with security cameras; as control panels in the industrial area; in kiosk systems; as cash monitor or information terminals; for machine control; home automation; on farm machinery; on forklifts in distribution centers; wind turbine controls; telematics in transportation systems and in many other areas.
The integrated touch panel is reliable and accurate. The touch function is quickly established via the USB port of your PC, while industrial users can connect the touch function through the serial port. faytech includes touchscreen drivers for popular Microsoft (CE, WinXP, Vista), Mac and Linux operating systems. For Win7 and Win8 operating systems, no driver installation is needed because the MER4485 chipset used in faytech´s in-house designed touch controller supports Login using virtual keyboard and immediate use of windows gestures after Login. This makes starting and using Windows 8 incredibly easy. Embedded systems like e.g. the raspberry Pi are also supported.
Customization is available for project customers (e.g. higher brightness, brightness sensor, IP protection classes, webcam, scanners, printers, capacitive and SAW touch panels, etc.). See more information about faytech products at www.faytech.com
