Freelander Link-Create manufactures about 2000 tablets or/and phones per day in this factory in Shenzhen China. Freelander makes and sells a whole range of Allwinner A31, Exynos 4412, MediaTek MT6577/6589 and other tablets and smartphones. But they were just making some MediaTek and Exynos based tablets the day (week-end) I was there. Check back for more on Freelander at http://ARMdevices.net in the next few days. I'm going to try to visit their factory again also while there are more people working making some of these newer devices.
Here is Meizu's latest flagship smartphone, running on the Exynos4412 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and using a new 4.4" 1280x800 LCD display.
Riku Voipio of Linaro, Andrew Wafaa of ARM, Olof Johannson of Google, Sonny Rao of Google and Marcin Juszkiewicz of Linaro talk about hacking and using the full performance of the ARM Powered Samsung Chromebook to run Ubuntu, Debian, Open Suse on this ARM Powered laptop, talking about how much the Mali-T604 is being used in this ARM Powered Chrome OS, which feature improvements the ARM Powered Chromebook may get to possibly improve battery life, and a bit about the possibility of running Chromium OS or Chrome OS on older/cheaper ARM Powered laptops such as ARM Cortex-A9 and previous.
ARM demonstrates GPU Computing on the new ARM Mali-T604 GPU, rendering graphical features, filters, encoding, processing certain things much faster and using much less power by processing those things on the GPU instead of on the CPU.
ARM runs the Epic Citadel benchmark at 55fps at 2560x1600 (4 megapixels = 2x 1080p) on the Mali-T604 while on Intel's latest mobile platform, that same benchmark runs 10fps slower at a resolution of only 1280x720 (less than 4x lower resolution?). ARM also shows the improvements when using the Mali-T604 with Open GL ES 3.0 which hopefully is soon going to be added in Android, providing higher quality 3D graphics features.
FXI Technologies invented the HDMI Stick, first having shown their Cotton Candy for the first time in November 2011. Here running on the Samsung Exynos 4 processor. They now have 250 partners working on the device, integrating their ideas, technology and applications, providing and upgrading their own solutions, they have hundreds of developers developing solutions and applications for it. They expect to have the Ubuntu platform ready by the end of March. FXI Tech inspired all other SoC vendors and device makers to integrate all other SoCs into HDMI sticks since then.
At Mobile World Congress 2013 the nomobile.ru guys interviewed me showing off my video-blogging setup and my latest gadgets. I wasn't able to use the Kopin Golden-i 3.8 to live augment my video-blogging at MWC because it was stuck in customs.
See more about how I video on my How I video-blog page.
