Using the new Telechips 8925 ARM Cortex-A5 processor platform, here’s the new computer/set-top-box on a USB Stick, with a full sized HDMI port on one side, a full sized USB Host port on the other, a Micro-USB port for power, MicroSD card slot, that’s it. Valueplus plans for a sub-$100 retail price, my guess is that the Bill of Materials for something like this can be done below $30 if mass manufactured. The market for these ARM Powered HDMI Sticks is going to be huge! Imagine a fully smoother Chrome on Android 4.0, a fully smooth Google TV user interface, this is awesome.
This touch pen works when the receiver is attached to the top of the side of any laptop or desktop screen.
It supports the DVBT standard and to use any RJ11 telephone as a VOIP phone through that device. IT can record and timeshift any DTV signal to any USB storage.
The most technical and awesome unboxing of the new Sony Xperia S (some blogs seem to say it’s currently one of the best smartphones on the market) is done by Diogo Ferreira, one of the leaders of Cyanogenmod alternative/optimized Android development for improved Android firmwares on the Sony Android platform.
One of the most impressive sights at the Mobile World Congress was for sure the insanely awesome Huawei Horse, made of hundreds, maybe thousands of real Huawei smartphones (my guess, probably just some bad yields thus recycled for art). The statement I think is that Huawei is now ready to take over the market. They mean business. They are serious about it. They claim to have the fastest Smartphone and Tablet on the market, and they also cover all ranges all the way down to the cheapest lowest end most affordable Smartphone. My take is we all need to pay attention to Huawei. In any ways, this Huawei Horse is awesome. It was an awesome sight during the nights of the MWC, imagine an awesome DJ up high in front of the columns, the castle at the top of the mountain, awesome house music, acrobats, and cool lights lighting up this Huawei Horse, mobile industry insiders networking in front of that. This is awesome.

Motion Core presents the usage of Sensor Fusion on the ST-Ericsson U8500 powered Sony Xperia P. It takes the information from all the sensors inside of the phone and renders it as a Wii-like remote control even without the use of infrared.
