Asus Transformer Book Trio, super expensive dual-x86 machine

Posted by – June 3, 2013

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 Is Asus going to sell more than a few thousand of these overpriced quickly outdated devices worldwide?

Microsoft Windows 8 RT at Next Berlin

Posted by – May 9, 2013

I'm asking Microsoft Germany's Windows Product Marketing Manager Boris Schneider-Johne some questions about the status of Windows RT, I also ask about the Android competition, RT vs Pro market share, everything on Windows RT is encrypted, Surface RT is his secondary computer (Photoshop/Ligthroom doesn't run on RT), how often does RT crash? Connected Standby (gets latest info all the time through Connected Standby API), and I even ask questions which he obviously can't answer, about Microsoft claiming ownership over Android (announcing certain Microsoft Partner Android companies paying Microsoft a licence for Android) Cheaper Windows RT? $299 instead of $599? 13.3" RT? 7" RT? 8" RT? and the idea of making a Metro UI for Android (he says it can't work).

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

Posted by – 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.
