This may be one of the best implementations of Android on an ARM Powered Laptop so far, HP is showing off their masterful customized Android user interface for the ARM Qualcomm Snapdragon based laptop form factor. It has great automatic standby and resume, connected standby, and a range of customized high resolution Android applications, widgets a touch screen and even hardware Search, Home/Menu/Back buttons on the super well made design.

I am video-blogging using an ARM Powered laptop!

Posted by Charbax – January 7, 2010

This is a worlds first, so does the Lenovo staff tell me. I can insert my SD card from my Sanyo HD1000 into the SD card reader of the Lenovo Skylight Smartbook, and right from within their Firefox based web browser, log-in to Youtube, click upload, select the file from the SD card and simply click to upload it! I actually uploaded this 1280x720 9mbit/s 25MB video clip using their built-in AT&T 3G connection, it took about a couple of minutes to upload over 3G. The same can of course be done faster over WiFi. With more tests to come up, I will try to figure out if the Youtube video-blogging using this ARM Powered laptop can be done just as fast as using an Intel powered laptop. And the ability to constantly upload videos from the bag over 3G and automatic WiFi roaming could be really interesting. The built-in USB host could also host future wireless dongles such as WiMax, White Spaces, LTE or some wireless broadband technologies to make it even faster to upload HD videos using it.

Another really cool thing is that the H264 baseline 9mbit/s 1280x720 Sanyo HD1000 video files playback nearly flawlessly on this ARM Powered laptop using its media player application.

Here it is! The first ARM Powered hardware sold by Google directly at http://google.com/phone

It's $529 unlocked for now. Please comment here if you think that I should buy one or wait for those Android phones to be available for less than $200 unlocked as I speculated that the price could have been for this device.

Asus Chairman Jonney Shih talks about the Asus ARM based Smartbooks in the works

Posted by Charbax – January 6, 2010

Basically, he says Asus are working on ARM Powered laptops, they are just not going to show them yet. I asked him off camera afterwards if the EeePad Asus Tablet rumor was for real and if Asus was working on any Android devices, he said they were working on it but not showing anything for now.

WiFi is bad at CES, video-uploads coming later

Posted by Charbax – January 6, 2010

I am not able to get enough bandwidth or any connection at all on the WiFi hotspots at the CES press events at the Venetian hotel (is CES not really interested in having bloggers blog about their tradeshow?), the Venetian press room has no working wifi and 6 ethernet cables to share among 2000 journalists. Also, the $10 daily WiFi access at my hotel room at Imperial Palace constantly drops off so I can for now not upload my first CES HD quality videos.

So for now I send you this blurry picture:

Today, I have seen some awesome looking ARM Powered laptops powered by Marvell and Qualcomm and the Lenovo one looks really great.

I will upload my videos daily as soon as I have access to the real Press Room at the convention center, perhaps starting tomorrow, where I am sure that they will provide hundreds of megabits per second upload speeds.

Lenovo Skylight is a Snapdragon ARM Powered Laptop to be shown at CES

I am really looking forward to see them demonstrated at CES. Anyone would like to speculate how good the Web Browser might be at this point? Consider the rumor is that the Lenovo Skylight will ship in April, which may mean that some software optimizations are still being worked on including full Javascripts, Flash, Video playback and 3D all to hopefully be optimized by hardware acceleration. What kind of optimized Linux software do you think this device might be using?

Also what do you think the actual prices might be? The rumor is that the laptop may come with 20GB on-board memory and 2GB of cloud storage.

The rumor is that it is super thin and light and still may deliver more than 10 hours of battery life when 3G surfing on its 10.1" high resolution screen.

Photos and details on pricing are being released on blogs: see netbookchoice.com and enjoy following pictures:
