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.

Check me dancing to Michael Jackson’s Bad in a Camera-recognition game dancing game running on Sunchip’s RK3188 HDMI Stick. The Kinect style body recognitions aren’t as precise as a Kinect because a regular webcam obviously doesn’t have that many sensors.
Home Console on a Stick. What can Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft do?

New Intel desktop box.
Here’s Asus’s latest extremely overpriced quite useless use of Android on top of a Wintel machine, using the latest most expensive Intel processor, and instead of using ARM on the Android mode, for no good reason, Asus makes yet another Intel x86 mistake, there’s yet another Intel Atom for Android mode. This over-expensive Intel Asus machine is probably going to cost $1500 and nobody is going to buy it. But here again, Johnny Shy likes to use the time of world media to show off yet another concept that is not going to interest nearly anyone. Good thing the Intel CEO has just been replaced, what the purpose is for this type of product is quite remote. Is Asus going to sell more than a few thousand of these overpriced quickly outdated devices worldwide?
Asus launches their new $149 MediaTek MT8125 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 with SGX GPU, no HDMI/MHL, but it has a MicroSD card slot, MicroUSB, Audio Jack, battery capacity is big enough for about 10 hours of use depending on use. This is thus not a new Nexus, it’s a new Asus, expect only the higher cost skew to be available, the $129 8GB skew is maybe not going to be much available outside of what Asus considers developing markets.
