Check out this wearable computer! It’s a 17″ or 20″ large touch screen that you can carry around, can be used for advertising purposes, communicating information to many people at conferences and other things like that.
Plug the module to Tablet dock, Desktop Dock, Set-top-box Dock, the PC module can be ARM or x86.
I was looking for it at Computex, I couldn’t find it being publicly demonstrated yet, but here it is on a 1-minute video. This new OMAP4470 ARM Powered Laptop from Toshiba looks nice! Now it’s going to be even nicer when/if it gets confirmed that this new Toshiba ARM Powered Laptop can legally multi-boot with Android, Chrome OS and Ubuntu and preferably be sold well below $500 with or without the hopefully optional $85 Windows RT licence.

Check out Windows 8 on a $68 VIA 8850 Powered 7″ capacitive tablet! (just a home replacement) What is the difference in performance and potential features between an optimized Android Home Replacement and a “real” native Windows RT machine?
I think it is obviously meaningless for Microsoft to insist on making Windows 8 a separate closed/proprietary/incompatible ecosystem to Android. And it’d be even more wrong if Microsoft wants to forbid tablet and laptop makers to dual-boot Android with Windows RT.

Here are some convertibles Ultrabooks with touch screens shown by Pegatron, Foxconn, Inventec, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer, Lenovo, NEC, Sony, Asus, LG, HP and Toshiba. All are showing new Ultrabooks at Computex 2012 but that doesn’t mean that they are going to sell many. In fact, Intel does not want to answer the quantity question. I don’t know anyone who has bought an Ultrabook and I don’t know anyone who wants to pay $1000 for a laptop. I’d like to see $199 ARM Powered Ultrabooks sooner rather than later.
Rob Chandhok, Senior Vice President of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies talks about the latest ARM Powered software advances
Qualcomm is doing huge work optimizing Linux and Windows on their S3 and S4 processors, trying to get as much performance out of the hardware as possible. Rob Chandhok is in charge of software at Qualcomm and in this video he talks about some of the software challenges that Qualcomm is working on to optimize software on their processors.
This demo of Windows 8 RT on Qualcomm S4 seems to be very smooth. There are a few bugs here or there, but overall, it looks quite smooth to me. I think Windows 8 on ARM is going to be more popular than Windows 8 on x86, yet I think that Android will remain far more popular than all forms of Windows.
