Posted by Charbax – November 6, 2018

Martin Riddiford talks about the Psion, which he designed in the 90ies it was a ground-breaking PDA design with a full mechanical qwerty keyboard. Trying to combine laptop functions in a pocketable size. In partnership with Planet Computers, Martin Riddiford is happy to have been able to bring back the full keyboard design in with Android on the Gemini PDA and now into the upcoming Cosmo Communicator design that is now being crowdfunded for $549 on https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-communicator

$549 Cosmo Communicator interview, now on Indiegogo

Posted by Charbax – November 6, 2018

Planet Computers launches the Cosmo Communicator for $549 for early backers at Indiegogo, powered by MediaTek P70 Octa-core quad ARM Cortex-A73, quad ARM Cortex-A53 with Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, on TSMC 12nm FinFET. It comes with WorldMode LTE dual-SIM (one is likely eSIM) support. Strong antenna with good signal, and now it also comes with a second 2" touchscreen display, a toggle switch with fingerprint reader, a 24 megapixel high quality front facing camera with flash, and a backlit keyboard. The CPU is thus a performance upgrade over Gemini PDA, it also comes with 6GB RAM, 128GB Flash, MicroSD card slot, headphone jack, dual Type-C ports, dual speakers and microphones and a 4220mAh battery. Planet Computers shipped over 9500 Gemini PDAs to their backers over the past several months which I filmed here previously I have been using Gemini PDA as my main phone over the past 7 months and it has been an awesome experience. The backlight keyboard, fingerprint authentication, high quality back facing camera, improved phone calls support, better signal reception with a stronger processor, all these things are very welcome in their new flagship. Planet Computers intends to continue selling both Gemini PDA and Osmo Communicator as two in their range of devices available for 2019, with continued support and software updates coming on both. In this video they show a working Android 8.0.1 firmware on Gemini PDA and they are talking about Project Trebble, Android 9, new Sailfish releases to be supported, hopefully hardware accelerated improved Debian and other Linux distributions also to be supported throughout. Within less than a day, they have already reached more than 200% funding on crowdfunding here on Indiegogo with shipments scheduled for May 2019, as they optimize and develop everything, impressive working samples are going to be shown in the months to come.

It comes with world's first 1.4Gbit/s Cat.21 LTE Modem, supports 2133Mhz LPDDR4X. Huawei claims to be about 50% faster at loading apps compared with the latest iPhone and Galaxy Note 9, run 38% longer on its 4200mAh battery, enables 140% faster quick charge with its 40W charger, it takes only 30min to charge up 70% of the battery and has 70% faster wireless charging. Up to 120% better antenna performance compared with the new iPhone Xs Max, with its dual-frequency GPS receiver, it can have a 10x better GPS positioning accuracy. Huawei PC Mode now also works by its usual USB Type-C Displayport functionality but it also works wirelessly sending the PC Mode display over to any Miracast receiver they also provide a Huawei wireless dongle.

Huawei HiVision estimates calories in Food on Huawei Mate 20

Posted by Charbax – October 17, 2018

HiVision gives information about food, it can give an estimate on food calories by its volume to assist in having a healthy lifestyle. It can recognize landmarks, famous paintings and objects which can then be purchased directly in Huawei's Smart Shopping feature that can recognize things and launch the purchase procedure directly based on the image or based on the camera. The Huawei Mate 20 comes with not only the world's most powerful Arm processor in Kirin 980 built on 7nm, with quad ARM Cortex-A76 and quad ARM Cortex-A55, it also has Dual-core Neural Processing Unit offering a vast amount of AI computing performance, making up probably a large part of those 6.9 Billion transistors on the SoC. These algorithms can eventually be trained to offer more and more accurate recognition of things in the surroundings of the smartphone camera.

Bokeh video on Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Posted by Charbax – October 17, 2018

The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro can take Bokeh video, they can blur the background as one of their new video AI modes in 1080p30. I shot here a sample using the phone so you can see the quality of that bokeh effect. Does it look good enough for video-blogging in a way that might have a professional look to it? I guess if the bokeh isn't by optics it's better not to shoot with it, right? But then the whole video is flat. This bokeh AI effect does not seem to recognize the things that are at the same distance, it blurs out anything that it considers not to be part of the face. And it might unblur any other faces that it catches in the background too which kind of defeats the purpose of blurring out the foreground and the background. It is possible though that Huawei might still yet improve on their AI algorithms here to perhaps improve their bokeh video effect further.
