ARM TrustZone Powered Mobile Payments

Posted by Charbax – March 6, 2010

ARM is presenting this hardware based secure payments and authentication system which all future mobile devices may be shipping with. The functionalities of those calculators that people use for their netbanking can thus be integrated in the future mobile phones, to let people do secure payments and authentication using a simple 4 number pin code on their mobile phone. The way they do it is that they guide the keyboard entries directly into a separate secure encrypted OS that functions separately from Android to do the secure authentication that then sends back the certificate (or how it's called) back to the web based application. This kind of system, I would guess, could also be integrated in laptops, or you could use your phone to authenticate yourself on any website very securely using any computer.

netbooknews.com: Dell Mini 5 demonstration

Posted by Charbax – February 23, 2010

This is Dell's 4.8" capacitative Android Tablet with built-in 3G. From the video, it sounds like this Dell Android tablet might be much more expensive than the Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android which is available since October 2009 for $249 in Radio Shack. No confirmation in this video about video codecs, bitrates playback, though it is said it will have HDMI output through a dock. Thus from this video, we can't know if full DivX video playback, full MKV H264 high profile video playback is supported at high bitrates through that HDMI output and on the LCD. No information if it will come in several different capacities as Archos comes from 8GB to 500GB using a 2.5" hard drive.

In an interview at hexus.net, Luis Pineda, SVP of product management for Qualcomm CDMA Technologies talks about the next generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon processors:

- Qualcomm 8X50A is 1.3ghz 45nm processor is being offered to manufacturers starting this month. Should arrive in products before the end of the year.

- Qualcomm 8X72 is a dual-core 1.5ghz processor will be released before the end of the year with products featuring it to come later. Could the 8X72 be Qualcomm's first ARM Cortex A9 based processor?

We are already seeing the ARM Cortex A8 based 1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon doing very impressive things in the HP Compaq Airlife 100, the Lenovo Skylight, LG Expo with add-on projector, Lenovo LePhone, Lenovo Ideapad U1, the Quanta Smartbook, the Google Nexus One phone and many more such really smooth and powerful devices. It will be interesting to see Qualcomm's next generation ARM processors that use 45nm process instead of 65nm and that use the ARM Cortex A9 architechture for even more powerful products that consume even less power.
