Android laptop: Compal Qualcomm powered Smartbook

Posted by Charbax – June 4, 2009

The worlds first Android laptop that runs everything awesomely well already!

Asus has an Android and Qualcomm powered smartbook as well, though Asus is hiding it at this point.

Acer, HP, all Nvidia Tegra based laptops, Texas Instruments based devices and Freescale based devices, all are launching with Android support.

In this video you can see how fast the current implementation of a browser in an Android laptop loads pages, while they still have optimizations to do, and I think they should try to get a full Google Chrome running on these, with support for an unlimited amount of tabs (though no need for all tabs to be active and heavy in the RAM memory).

Nvidia Tegra: HD streaming and Flash support demonstrated by Gordon Grigor, Director og Mobile Software

Posted by Charbax – June 4, 2009

An amazing demonstration by Gordon Grigor Director og Mobile Software at Nvidia (the software engineering lead in developing Tegra solution!) of the ways Nvidia accelerates web browsing, flash, HD video decoding, HD video streaming from the Internet and more.

I was very impressed today I interviewing the Nvidia executives and engineers, they are insanely confident about their Tegra ARM implementation, even though the current demonstration of the Tegra technology does NOT use the latest ARM Cortex processor which is 4x faster for things like a browser compared to ARM11!!!! Nvidia is processing many things from the browser using the GPU! Can you believe that? Rendering of browser contents, scrolling, font antialiasing, image rendering, flash animations, flash videos, all are taken care of by the Nvidia GPU! Look for my videos of all that, being uploaded now and filming more the next couple or three of days.

Archos 5 TV Snap-On review

Posted by Charbax – May 25, 2009

Review of the Archos 5 TV Snap-On accessory that let's you watch and record DVB-T (freeview) signals city-wide and country-wide for most European countries which already have good DVB-T coverage. It comes with a dual diversity antenna system that allows you to get the best reception for a mobile DVB-T receiver, it picks in real-time the best available signal while you walk around or move your device around when at the football match, at work, in school, on the bus, on the train, anywhere especially in densely populated areas which have good DVB-T coverage.
