Chromebook on Android

Here are my expectations for Google's rumored upcoming Chrome OS laptop/tablet hybrid:

- 12.85" Pixel Qi LCD, Google sponsored, to be available to all other Android hardware makers as a new component. (Plastics based flexible unbreakable LCD for thinner lighter waterproof dustproof unbreakable build)

- Optical lamination allows for outdoor readable capacitive Pixel Qi LCD. Otherwise IR based Neonode touch can work.

- 20 million initial production batch, enough to make a significant mark on the market, next batch can be 100 million units.

- Android 5.0 to support Chrome OS on top of Android. Same for Ubuntu on top of Android. Multi-booting becomes standard feature of Android. It's not really multi-booting, it's enabling to run alternative Linux OSes on top of the base Linux OS of Android.

- $200, available worldwide on day 1. Second batch can be sold for $150 or $100. Schools can get rebates if they order one for every child. Google can subsidize a few of those millions to be used by Children in developing countries through the One Laptop Per Child project.

- 16GB Flash with SD slots and potentially a 2.5" HDD slot.

- 25 hours battery life. 200 grams flat battery dock doubles battery life to 50 hours.

- Swivel screen. Super slim keyboard can hide behind screen for tablet mode.

- ARM Cortex-A15, either OMAP5 with SGX544 or Exynos5 with Mali-T604. Maybe another comparable ARM Processor.

- Modem slot, all types modems available as options, 3G+, LTE, White Spaces, easily user swapable. There is space for an internal usb modem too.

Let me know what you think of this rumored Google hybrid here or at my Google+ thread.

laptopmag.com: Cotton Candy FXI-Tech Exynos4210 HDMI Stick reviewed

Posted by Charbax – November 20, 2012

I think the Norwegian guys at Cotton Candy FXI-Tech actually kind of invented the HDMI stick market, when they first showed a prototype of the Cotton Candy exactly a year ago in November 2011. Since then, tons of other ARM SoCs have been shown and released to the worldwide market:
January 2012: Allways Innovating shows OMAP4 on HDMI Stick (not released yet as far as I know),
March 2012: Telechips Cortex-A5 ultra compact HDMI sticks (2, 3) appears (probably still the most compact)
May 2012: The Allwinner A10 Mk802 appears, has taken most of the market, appearing for $74 but now available for $25 from Shenzhen, a version is $40 with free worldwide shipping in the ARMdevices.net members store.
June 2012: Geniatech shows AmLogic single-core Cortex-A9 in HDMI Stick (available for $49 with worldwide shipping in the ARMdevices.net members store)
September 2012: RK3066 is ready for dual-core HDMI sticks
October 2012: The dual-core AmLogic MX HDMI stick and $99 with worldwide shipping the ARMdevices.net members store).
More RK3066 HDMI Sticks shown, the one with Bluetooth, mini-jack audio out and female HDMI port selling for $60 including worldwide shipping the ARMdevices.net members store.
And now perhaps the most powerful HDMI stick on the market is the i.MX6 Quad-core HDMI stick (2), available for $89 including worldwide shipping hopefully starting later today on the ARMdevices.net Members Store.

ARM Powered Chromebook by Samsung

Posted by Charbax – November 2, 2012

This is the most awesome device in the world. First Exynos5250 ARM Cortex-A15 Mali-T604 device on the market. I ordered 3 that I'll hopefully receive tomorrow from Amazon, and that I can video-review over several videos in the days to come. I plan to use this ARM Cortex-A15 Powered Chromebook as my main laptop for all my video-blogging work going forward. I only use YouTube video editor anyway, and I expect to have my 2TB USB3 portable 2.5" hard drives work quite fine to backup SD cards from the camera, I expect the USB Ethernet adapter to work fine, I expect the performance to be good enough also on a 720p or 1080p external 42" HDTV as external monitor with external mouse and keyboard, I expect to find FTP support, and hopefully my favorite VPN service providers (especially when I need YouTube while in China) can also be used, perhaps there's VPN support in extensions. I really look forward to see what performance and battery life optimizations can be made in the weeks and months to come. This isn't big.LITTLE yet and the battery is ultra thin and light, but I still expect/wonder if this device can be optimized utilizing full Mali-T604 hardware acceleration to reach 10 hours battery life in the months to come.
