Pixel Qi shows 10″ capacitive

Posted by Charbax – May 31, 2010

Imagine being able to combine the Laptop, Tablet and e-reader into one convertible device, then having a screen technology that enables you to take it outside in the sun! Geeks outdoors in the sun, how cool is that going to be? Imagine also being able to turn off the backlight, increase up to 5x the battery runtime of your Tablet compared to for example the iPad. At Computex 2010, Pixel Qi is finally releasing the 3Qi screen, here demonstrating 10" capacitive touch screen support and with half a dozen or more major partners. Here are some details from Mary Lou Jepsen, CTO of Pixel Qi, about the current status of the mass manufacturing of this technology. Look forward to many more Pixel Qi related videos from Computex 2010 uploaded right here on http://ARMdevices.net

Posted by Charbax – May 28, 2010

This is the QOOQ tablet, perhaps worlds first commercially available consumer 10.1" capacitive tablet, has been available only in France since October 2009 (many months before the iPad), it uses a glass panel which is also useful for it to resist the attacks of ingredients in the kitchen as it is water and smudge proof. This product features many interactive recipes, some of them from Frances top chefs, with step-by-step videos. The content is streamed from the QOOQ Akamai servers, over Wifi or Ethernet, with additional recipes being added over the Internet.

The QOOQ is released by the French company Unowhy, the first such customized design released on the Shogo tablet platform from Hong-Kong company Realease, and runs on a Freescale i.MX37 processor with Linux. It currently is sold only in France for 349€.

Marvell makes OLPC XO-3 Tablet, now official

Posted by Charbax – May 27, 2010

I predicted it in my article on 18th March, Marvell's Moby Tablet announcement is the beginning of the new OLPC XO-3 project.

This is great news! It means XO-3 is coming earlier than 2012 as originally planned. It'll basically start coming as soon as the next generation Marvell Armada 61X processor is ready. Check my video of Marvell Armada 610 and my video of the Marvell Armada 618 to have an idea how impressive this processor is. This means that prototypes of XO-3 could be showcased today and I'm guessing mass manufacturing can start before the end of year.

This also means the 5000+ people at Marvell are now working towards reaching the goals of the OLPC project. Cheaper access to learning, information, web, online entertainment, e-books, worldwide communications, all this is great!

Were there Android Tablets at GoogleI/O?

Posted by Charbax – May 21, 2010

I was expecting Google to launch Android Tablet Edition at the recent Google I/O, but watching through the two keynotes videos (1, 2), I can only see lots interesting things about WebM open-source free licence VP8 video codec launch, awesome new Android 2.2 features and Google TV launch, but no mention of them bringing their Android Martketplace to tablets.

NetbookNews.com did find a Nvidia Tegra 2 based new Android tablet showcased, but no talk or confirmation on if it will come with the Google Marketplace officially pre-installed:
