Ubuntu on phone, tablets, latest demos

Posted by m@ddy – July 29, 2013

Here's Ubuntu OS for phones built on Android BSP (Board Support Package). They can bring on various phone devices in very short time. Ubuntu OS makes playing videos easier. Ubuntu User interface is very sleek. Through Preview window you can see the videos while playing games or working on any other app. Ubuntu OS runs on different engine no need of engines like JAVA, Dolby. Ubuntu applications written by CUTE support HTML5. It's different software architecture. Ubuntu provides complete ecosystem also provides SDK system for developers they can use CUTE create their own apps. So that Simple app can run both PC and Phone. Ubuntu OS runs on high end phones, require powerful CPU capable to run both Android and Ubuntu OS at the same time. To do this optimization required of phone feature complete like you can write SMS from desktop in all languages. Users don't need to have other laptop or PC to communicate between Android and Ubuntu. It's an Unique experience run Both OS on One Phone. For now Android apps can't run on Ubuntu. It is possible only after optimzing aspects like graphics. Android apps for Touch. but running CUTE apps is different thing.They can easily Ubantu open source can be write on Android code.there is lot of room for optimization like display performance VD development finally putting them together is easy concept. Ubuntu lowered the basic effort to put Ubuntu on Android. BSP drivers are almost same so effort for OEM is easier to adapt Ubuntu on their hardware. Last year Ubuntu was on OMAP4. Now on qualcomm S4. Wrote with "Ubuntu control app". User can control Ubuntu session by phone only. If click on shut down Ubuntu control app the phone still can work on Android.

To run Ubuntu 1GB RAM. 1.5Ghz Dualcore CPU are minimum requirements. Aiming to different market segment.
People who think that Android is not sufficient they can turn on Ubuntu. Android is designed for small phones where as Ubuntu they design for large screens. Legacy of Linux is for big screens and multitasking. The main focus is running Ubuntu on multiple device like phone, tablet, TV and many more.

Robert Scoble shows Google Glass

Posted by Charbax – April 24, 2013

Robert Scoble is showing off the Google Glass at the Next Berlin conference, he gave an awesome keynote on Context, the upcoming wearable computing revolution. Robert Scoble has been using his Google Glass for about a week and offers here some of his impressions and thoughts on this Google headmounted computer Prototype. Check back on http://ARMdevices.net for much more on the features and performance of the Google Glass and all other wearable computing devices that I'll video-blog in the weeks to come.

iOS and Windows apps to soon run on Android?

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2013

Check out my 41-minute video with Bernhard Rosenkränzer, Android engineer at Linaro, where he explains how iOS, Windows Phone/RT/8 and full Linux apps can soon run on Android. He shows off how GCC/LLVM/Clang now runs on Android, allowing developers to develop and compile code directly on Android. Soon, perhaps as 64bit ARMv8 devices reach the market by next year, developers won't need an x86 Laptop machine to develop for/on Android. Compile a new Android and reboot into it, all within Android itself. He explains how Google and the open source Android project is using Linaro code to optimize and speed up Android Linux on all ARM devices. Here's the video that I filmed last year that got him to win the "Online Superstar" award at Linaro Connect 2013.

Viewsonic VSD241 24″ and VSD220 22″ All-in-one Android Computers

Posted by Charbax – March 3, 2013

You get the full Android 4.1 Jelly Bean experience on the 24" Viewsonic VSD241 1080p display running on a Tegra3 quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on the 22" Viewsonic VSD220 1080p display running on the OMAP4430 dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. The price of integrating the ARM SoC with Android is perhaps not much more than selling the touch screen display by itself, and with the HDMI input and USB you can connect any Windows 8 Laptop or Desktop to this screen to thus use the same large touch screen to also use Windows 8.

Cupp computing hardware secured mobility

Posted by Charbax – March 3, 2013

Cupp computing demonstrates how they make ARM based PCI modules that add full hardware based security for Windows/Mac/Linux laptops, running the full security suite on the Cupp computing module, quicker and safer than an anti-virus. Cupp computing hopes to provide a +400Mb solution based on a quad core ARM processor later this year for a bit over $200.

Kopin Golden-i 3.8 headmounted ARM Powered wearable computer for augmented video-blogging

Posted by Charbax – January 13, 2013

Kopin presents their new next generation wearable computer, headmounted hands-free interface micro-display connected device. This time it's lighter, more compact, runs on a much faster OMAP4470, interfaces with Verizon's LTE network, runs longer on a smaller battery, has a new higher-resolution micro-display, has a new better design. The Golden-i 3.8 is being released through Verizon in the USA during the next few months, through Vodafone in Europe, there are also potential carrier distributors for India and China. The use is industrial such as for using wearable computers for firefighters, police, doctors, mechanics, construction workers, military and more. The use can also be for all professionals and enthusiasts and early adopters of wearable computing.

During CES 2013, I was live video-streaming to a Google+ Hangout while reading the live IRC chat in the Golden-i headmounted display, that custom Google+ Hangouts and IRC chat functionality was programmed for me by Dave Hollick of Ikanos Consulting. This is just scratching the surface of what thishardware can do. With Android support coming to the Golden-i within a couple months, the whole Google+ Hangouts app and IRC apps can be made to run directly within the Golden-i, with voice-commands and voice dictation to live-blog, live-post to Google+ and live-tweet hands-free, for rapidly increasing the capabilities of ones headmounted hands-free Augmented Video-blogging setup.

This is how I video-blog.

As Google's Project Glass approaches early public testing phases, the enthusiasm for wearable computing is rapidly ramping up during 2013, I think that we can expect some really amazing things to become possible and usable using these types of wearable computing. Check back in the weeks and months to come on http://ARMdevices.net for much more coverage of the real useful usage of wearable computers with the Kopin Golden-i representing the forefront of what we can expect.
