Microsoft announces Full Windows 10 on ARM with full x86 win32 apps emulation

Posted by Charbax – December 8, 2016

Microsoft shows Full Windows 10 on ARM, on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820:

we have an x86 Win32 desktop app running transparently with no changes, thanks to the magical emulation technology we've built into Windows 10 on ARM. This is Adobe Photoshop running great on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, we made zero changes to the app, it runs perfectly.

Microsoft says that they will launch this with the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, due to be released in 2017. But here for this demo, they show their full Windows 10 with x86 apps support running smoothly on the currently shipping Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.

It might be that Microsoft and Qualcomm want to have at least the performance of their next generation 835 to be able to offer a satisfactory x86 apps emulation performance.

The first usage case Microsoft aims for is the ARM Powered Laptop.

I think Microsoft should also try to run full Windows 10 with x86 apps emulation "as an app" on not-too-heavily-modified Android, support Android powered full Windows 10 Continuum concept. They can work with Qualcomm and Google on that. Basically dock your Android phone and it should run a full Windows 10 UI with full x86 apps support on the external Lapdock/desktopdock.

Moto Z, Projector, Camera, Speaker, Battery MotoMods

Posted by Charbax – November 15, 2016

Lenovo Motorola Moto Z is an amazing new Smartphone, with Greybus (watch the video that I filmed with Greg Kroah-Hartman on their Greybus development for Google's discontinued Project Ara) based data and hot-swappable power pogopin docking technology on an ultra-thin Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Smartphone design, with options to dock a TI DLP Pico Projector MotoMod, a Hasselblad True Zoom Photo/Video Camera, JBL SoundBoost Speaker and the Incipio offGRID Power Pack, all MotoMods that customizes and expands the functionalities of a Smartphone. An absolutely fascinating potential evolution for the Smartphone market, Motorola is developing a potentially amazing ecosystem for future-proof MotoMods that can turn your Smartphone into a Project, into a point-and-shoot quality Camera, into an amazingly loud Speaker and that can expand its battery life easily. All these MotoMods are magnetically locked onto the back of the Moto Z. Now Motorola is also releasing the Moto Mods Development Kit to enable third parties to develop new MotoMods for the Moto Z, for example I hope someone makes an ultra-thin E Ink Mobius (flexible, plastic and non-glass) display for the back-size of the smartphone, a Kent Displays CH-LCD based notes taking back case and a LapDock Laptop Dock to use the Moto Z to power the Ultra-thin Laptop dock and desktop dock. The functionalities of Moto Z can also expand through the TurboPower fast charging USB Type C which I have used with USB Type C to SD card adapter, for example to upload videos from my SD card to YouTube. The possibilities with the Moto Z ecosystem are very, very interesting. But for these to get the attention of the consumers worldwide, I think that Lenovo/Motorola needs to lower the price of the bundles to around $599 for the phone including the Projector MotoMod, $699 including Projector and E Ink MotoMod, $349 or $399 for the Moto Z by itself (instead of the current $699). $699 should also be a bundle to include an ultra-thin and ultra-light small bezel 13.3" Laptop Dock and Desktop Dock MotoMod and with the appropriate Remix OS like Android implementation through Android Nougat to support full Android Powered Productivity on the external display.
