DS-TAGS E Ink BAGTAG with NXP enables Smart Luggage Tag

Posted by Charbax – March 3, 2016

DS-TAGS ( shows off their new BAGTAG solution at the NXP booth. BAGTAG enables passengers on airplanes and the travel industry to speed up the luggage check-in process at airports, it includes a secure electronic E Ink bag tag, an Android/iOS app & SDK and a cloud-based platform that allows secure end-to-end data service. With BAGTAG airlines can now offer “off-airport” baggage check-in, which allows travelers to beat the queues at an airport or terminal thanks to a revamped baggage drop-off process of less than 8 seconds. BAGTAG will become available later this year.

DS-TAGS BAGTAG has "10-year battery life" using an ultra-low power ARM Cortex-M0 to drive a 4” E-INK display. The device powers off instantly when the tag is updated while passively providing routing information to the airline infrastructure due to the bi-stable feature of E Ink. The BAGTAG’s superior barcode readability and integrated UHF results in improved read-rates, reduce the chance of misplaced luggage. A traveler can update the BAGTAG themselves with their own smartphone via either NFC or Bluetooth LE. The security of the device is handled by a secure element provided by NXP, much like the payment card industry is using today.

Kirk Skaugen, General Manager of Intel PC Client Group at Huawei MateBook launch

Posted by Charbax – March 1, 2016

Intel partners with Huawei to release Huawei's first Intel consumer device, the Huawei MateBook running on an Intel Core-M3/M5/M7 processor, with different skews from 4GB/8GB RAM and from 128GB/512GB SSD storage, to be sold from $699 to $1599 without the keyboard dock. Kirk Skaugen talks about how Intel says that the 2-in-1 segment is their fastest growing consumer client market after the phablet with a 40% growth in 2015 compared with 2014 (but not saying how many units that represents). Kirk Skaugen also says Intel is looking forward to provide "full" Windows Continuum products also taking advantage of USB Type-C DisplayPort and other screen outputs and smart docks that add connectors also through USB Type-C like the MateDock.

Off camera I asked him (as I've been asking every Intel spokesperson that I see at tradeshows for years) when Intel would be making ARM Processors for consumer devices in their Fab, letting the market choose which architecture is best to use, but he smiled and didn't respond. Check back later on my channel for more on that, probably.

Best of MWC 2016: HP Elite x3 with Windows 10 Continuum on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

Posted by Charbax – February 27, 2016

HP shows the future of computing! HP's vision for the future of consumer and enterprise pocketable electronics, the Windows 10 Continuum enabled HP Elite x3 running on the super fast 14nm (Samsung Fab) Snapdragon 820. HP offers DeskDock with USB Type-C, Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB2, DisplayPort, USB Type-C. It outputs to a large display, with an RF or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. HP Elite X3 has a 5.96" 2K 2560x1440 Super AMOLED with 550nits brightness "best in class".4GB LPDDR4 RAM. 64GB internal with Dual Nano SIM that can also be One Nano SIM and one MicroSD card slot. "Best in class" single touch fingerprint scanner. A second biometric authentication is the iris scanner. IP67 waterproof 1.5m for 30 minutes "all sealed". Shock-proof with Gorilla Glass. 4150mAh battery. HP even shows their "empty" 12.8" thin bezel Laptop Dock "mobile extender" under 1kg to be powered by this amazing phone! The Laptop dock also miracast wirelessly. Bang and olufsen sound. Pogopins on the back of the phone allows it to extend with Smart back-cases, a POS (point of sale) solution and I also suggest them in the video to do an E Ink back-case for long battery life sunlight readable e-reading. Everybody at Microsoft, Qualcomm, HP and even Marc Benioff CEO of Salesforce is excited about this product. HP talks about running their virtualization engine to run any x86 app through the cloud. This looks like they are all going to make sure this product gets successfully deployed on the market by Summer this year.

I think that HP should try to price the full bundle at below the current price of a high-end iPhone/Samsung, thus below $700 including the Desktop, keyboard/mouse and also including the "empty" 12.8" Laptop Dock. The Desktop Dock needs a HDMI output. Of course I'd like to finally see Google supply an Android Continuum UI alternative solution at Google I/O. I also perhaps think that Microsoft's Continuum dock is better with a cable and the phone on the table than having it docked upright.
