Microsoft Windows 10 Continuum on ARM

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2016

Microsoft is proud to present their Windows 10 Continuum running super smoothly on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 based Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950XL, the Microsoft branded devices resulting from the acquisition of Nokia, following a huge work by Microsoft together with their partners such as Qualcomm, to bring a full Windows 10 experience to ARM, powering the future of the Desktop and the Laptop through an ARM Powered smartphone, outputting a full Windows experience to an external display using DisplayPort over USB Type-C through a desktop dock or a laptop dock.

Backwards compatibility of x86 Windows apps can be supported through a cloud solution, such as the one HP is providing with their HP Elite x3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based Windows Continuum phone coming out a few months from now.

I believe the best solution for Microsoft will be to support Windows 10 on Android, so when you dock an Android phone through a desktop dock or a laptop dock, then Microsoft needs to make sure that a full Windows 10 Continuum on ARM experience can be outputted from the Android phone on that secondary display. Microsoft needs to make Windows 10 an "external-only" home replacement which needs to work on any Android device.

7Gbit/s Wi-Fi using 802.11ad over 60Ghz by Qualcomm

Posted by Charbax – March 5, 2016

Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. shows off 802.11ad, the next generation Wi-Fi over 60Ghz, that enables data transfer speeds at up to 7Gbit/s. The 60 GHz signal cannot typically penetrate walls but can propagate off reflections from walls, ceilings, floors and objects using beamforming. When roaming away from the main room the protocol can switch to make use of the other lower Wi-Fi bands on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz at a much lower rate, both of which can propagate through walls. 802.11ad is supported in Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Qualcomm Atheros Qualcomm Internet Processor (IPQ) 8064 reference designs combined with its QCA9500 802.11ad chipset. Letv's first Snapdragon 820 smartphone will support it. New Wi-Fi Access points from Elecom, NEC and TP-Link support it, and Acer and Asus plan to release laptops with 802.11ad. SiBEAM, Inc., a Lattice Semiconductor company, and Peraso Technologies, Inc. will also deliver Adapters to the market.

Sharp Robohon speaks English at the Qualcomm booth at MWC 2016

Posted by Charbax – March 5, 2016

Sharp Robohon (which I previously filmed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiZSL3o8L7M) is Sharp's vision for the future of the smartphone. A pocket-sized humanoid Robot, with built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, LTE Sim card slot, it has a built-in projector, microphone, speaker. The concept is to use AI conversations to bring usefulness as a notification robot. I think Sharp needs to mass manufacture it, sell it worldwide for the price of an iPhone, and load all kinds of AI apps so it can be powered by Google, Amazon, Microsoft or anyone else who is making an AI voice assistant.
