Onyx International Android E Ink, stable e-reader and E430 4.3″ Android E Ink Phone

Posted by – June 4, 2013

Onyx International is reaching a fully stable Android on E Ink state, here showcasing their latest 6″ capacitive Android e-reader as well as their 4.3″ capacitive Android E Ink phone. The Android E Ink phone’s touch panel is still being finalized, I am borrowing the Android E Ink phone for the next 2-3 days, let me know what I should test and show on it. I’ll try to compare it with other LCD and AMOLED smartphones in direct and indirect sunlight if the weather permits here in Taipei. Onyx’s 6″ E Ink e-reader is quite stable, they still want to improve some of the Android UI for E Ink e-readers, but now it’s already stable. I am also borrowing their Android E-reader for 2-3 days, let me know what I should test on it, I’ll compare it with the Kindle Paperwhite.

Onyx Boox Touch Moon Light (i62), Kindle Paperwhite competitor

Posted by – October 17, 2012

Onyx releases their new 1024×768 6″ HD E Ink e-reader with their own front light technology. They say it’s better than Nook Glowlight but they haven’t yet been able to compare with the Kindle Paperwhite. It runs Onyx own advanced embedded Linux OS for E In e-readers on the Freescale i.MX508, that Onyx has been developing for years now with multiple generations of touch-screen based e-readers that they have been releasing these past years with advanced features like annotations, highlights, scribbling and more.

E Ink Android Phone by Onyx International

Posted by – October 16, 2012

This is awesome. Check out this sunlight readable Android phone with a 1-week battery life (not 1-month as said in the video). It’s E Ink! E Ink Android smartphone prototype! As you can see in my half-hour long interview with E Ink at IFA last month, E Ink is preparing their smartphone-sized plastics based unbreakable screens to be used on the back of smartphones. Here’s an awesome-looking sub-100gr (maybe it’s only 70 grams! I’m getting a weight confirmation imminently, check back) E Ink smartphone. Check it out, the UI is usable on this E Ink phone even though the Android UI used is optimized for LCD, it doesn’t take much for Google and others to re-optimize Android for E Ink use! Something to do with requiring the least possible UI refreshes to add/change on-screen info. The battery life is roughly ONE WEEK not one month as is said at the end of the video. I guess it depends how much you refresh infos, load data and make phone calls with it, though the screen basically always stays on, potentially always displaying relevant info all the time. It’s running on an ARM Cortex-A5 processor, maybe the Qualcomm MSM7227A, to be confirmed.

Top-24 videos I filmed at CES of products not covered by Engadget

Posted by – January 14, 2011

While Engadget has about 38 bloggers at CES and a huge dedicated trailer with dedicated fiber optics line just outside the Central Hall, it can be hard for a small independent blogger like me, fighting for bandwidth at cheap Las Vegas hotels (Internet access in my Sahara hotel room actually didn’t work at all during the whole CES) or staying on the floor outside the Las Vegas Convention Center press room untill 11PM every night (until they turned off the lights and security kicks me out), uploading and posting 106 HD quality videos during CES bringing you exclusive contents even as sites like Engadget and 100 other big blogs always post 500 things on the first day of CES, their coverage is great. But I notice I may have covered a bunch of things that the Engadget bloggers didn’t find interesting enough or couldn’t find (too busy partying with Lady Gaga?), let me give you an overview of some 24 products that I have filmed and that seem not to be covered on Engadget (I still have more than 20 CES videos to upload and to post later today and the next few days):

NEC Tegra2 Powered 7″ Laptop, Engadget only covered NEC’s cool dual-resistive-screen Android tablet which I also filmed, but they don’t seem to have found this 7″ Tegra 2 Laptop with Touch screen form factor.

Innodigital WebTube, Android ARM Cortex-A9 set-top-box, Korean Innodigital seems to be making the absolute best Samsung ARM Cortex-A8 $165 and Trident ARM Cortex-A9 $265 Android Set-top-boxes. Those I believe may be Google TV ready once that software for ARM is ready.

OLPC XO-1.75, ARM Marvell Armada 610 version of the XO Laptop!, Engadget did cover it but not with video.

Onyx Boox M90, cool 9.7″ connected e-ink e-reader with digitizer annotations input and cool embedded Linux software by Chinese Onyx International. Definitely a good alternative to the 9.7″ Kindle DX that has no touch screen input features.

Ramos ARM Cortex-A9 Tablets, except all the Tegra2 tablets and the OMAP4430 Blackberry Playbook, Ramos may have been one of the only ones showing alternative AmLogic 1.2Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 based tablets at CES.

Polaroid Android Tablet, Polaroid showed a 9.7″ Android Tablet to compete directly with the iPad.

Shenzhen ACT 4.8″ capacitive Marvel PXA935 clamshell Android, a really enjoyable 1Ghz Marvell powered Android 4.8″ capacitive clamshell form factor with dual-sim card. This design could be close to dream like for some productive Android fanboys.

Ocean Star 1024×600 7″ capacitive Rockchip RK2818 Android Tablet, at $140 in bulk, may be most affordable 1024×600 7″ capacitive Android tablet yet and can have 3G built-in for $50 more. Rockchip is ramping up!

Mary-Lou Jepsen gives an update on Pixel Qi at CES 2011, Engadget did talk about Pixel Qi news, but did not post an extensive interview with Mary-Lou Jepsen talking about status like mine.

Archos 101 Home Tablet, possibly cheapest 10″ capacitive ARM Cortex-A8 tablet, yet another in the Rockchip Home Tablet series for Archos, Rockchip says it could be sold for $199 retail, price is to be confirmed by Archos once Rockchip RK29xx is delivered in mass quantities for this product to ship.

Rockchip presents RK2818 and RK29xx series Processors at CES 2011, Engadget didn’t provide you with an extensive interview with top representative at Rockchip about their status. Rockchip was in over 50 Android tablets shown at CES, from RK2818 to RK29xx, that’s possibly a record.

GreatWall M7250, $125 Android Tablet, Marvell 166 ARM11 based 7 Android tablet, it costs $125 in bulk, offers a 3G built-in option for $45 extra
