$79 Remix OS Laptop on 64bit Allwinner A64 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53

Posted by Charbax – April 22, 2016

The world's most affordable usable Laptop. It's ARM Powered, it runs Remix OS 2.0 on Allwinner A64 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53, with an ARM Mali400MP2 GPU, with a decent 11.6" 1366x768 display, a good keyboard and a basic mousepad (better mousepad option can be used), 1GB RAM and 8GB Flash, with 2GB RAM and more Flash options also possible. The price for this laptop can be as low as $79 to $99 if mass produced in huge volumes in the weeks/months to come, depending on the 1GB or 2GB RAM and depending on the installed Flash storage capacity (8GB, 16GB or 32GB), depending on the installed battery capacity/quality (battery life) and depending on the mousepad quality. There is also an about $20 higher priced 14.1" Allwinner A64 Remix OS 2.0 Laptop alternative available. The price totally depends on which distributor takes this platform and distribute it where and what profit margins they decide to take. If the demand is high, this Allwinner A64 Remix OS Laptop will be fully funded on crowdfunding platforms, then available in all retail stores and available as an impulse buy at supermarkets around the world. This, I think, is the big chance for Allwinner to make their A64 processor super popular. Also they have a nice open mold design 2-in-1 Laptop Tablet convertible design that should be bulk priced also below $99 with an 11.6" IPS touch screen, and also a decent keyboard and mousepad. The Remix OS team has already provided very stable support with many over-the-air updates on the 64bit Allwinner A64 platform as it's used in the very popular crowdfunded and mass produced Remix Mini which I previously filmed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNAHH3EpO_w

NexDock is an Empty Laptop 14" concept, with HDMI input to use the Empty laptop's display from any device with HDMI output, then with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to then control that same device as long as it has Bluetooth support. The device can be any Smartphone with MHL, Slimport, USB Type-C MHL or DisplayPort output, it can be any HDMI Stick, Development boards can also work. The Empty Lapdop Dock can also charge any device using one of its USB charging ports, I guess with 2A power output.

Microsoft Windows 10 Continuum on ARM

Posted by Charbax – March 9, 2016

Microsoft is proud to present their Windows 10 Continuum running super smoothly on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 based Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950XL, the Microsoft branded devices resulting from the acquisition of Nokia, following a huge work by Microsoft together with their partners such as Qualcomm, to bring a full Windows 10 experience to ARM, powering the future of the Desktop and the Laptop through an ARM Powered smartphone, outputting a full Windows experience to an external display using DisplayPort over USB Type-C through a desktop dock or a laptop dock.

Backwards compatibility of x86 Windows apps can be supported through a cloud solution, such as the one HP is providing with their HP Elite x3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 based Windows Continuum phone coming out a few months from now.

I believe the best solution for Microsoft will be to support Windows 10 on Android, so when you dock an Android phone through a desktop dock or a laptop dock, then Microsoft needs to make sure that a full Windows 10 Continuum on ARM experience can be outputted from the Android phone on that secondary display. Microsoft needs to make Windows 10 an "external-only" home replacement which needs to work on any Android device.
