Some of my best of HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair picks on the official HKTDC channel

Posted by – October 17, 2013

Check me out on the official HKTDC channel showing some of the coolest devices at the HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics fair. Also check back in the many days to come as I’ll publish the more than a hundred videos that I filmed at the Hong Kong fair. Some of my picks include the MediaTek Powered Smartwatches, the Spreadtrum Powered E Ink Android phone, the Rockchip RK3188 Powered HDMI Sticks and Tablets. Check back for all my videos to be posted! (I had a problem in the last day and a half, my Intel Powered ultrabook has crashed and burnt a 4th time in the last 18 months I’ve used it, it doesn’t boot up anymore, now I’m borrowing a laptop while I also just gave away my 11-month old Samsung ARM Chromebook last week (bad timing) as I’d like to buy a new one later this month, Exynos5420 Powered Chromebook would have been best but another Exynos5250 Powered HP Chromebook 11 will do if nothing else gets released before).

As well as the Allwinner A70 Quad-core (2x Cortex-A15 and 2x Cortex-A7), and for later, Allwinner already announces that they will release a 64bit ARMv8 ARM Cortex-A57 and ARM Cortex-A53 big.LITTLE processor, perhaps for later in 2014 or for early 2015. For the first time, Allwinner shows the Chrome logo, Windows 8 (probably meaning Windows RT), this means the Allwinner A80 may be good to use in mass market affordable Chromebooks, cheap Windows RT laptops and desktops and more. This video also features the Allwinner A23 PCB, implemented in affordable 7.85″ tablets and more, manufactured now by Pegatron and Foxconn, Ramos, Onda, Winn and many more.

Archos Gamepad 2

Posted by – October 13, 2013

Archos releases the Archos Gamepad 2 ($199/179€ MSRP) on Rockchip RK3188 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 28nm HKMG 1.6Ghz, with 2GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB Flash storage (perhaps more storage options to be available for people who want to store many Android games on built-in Flash storage and not on MicroSD?), 1280×800 super high quality IPS display, new improved Gamepad buttons, new improved design compared to Archos Gamepad from last year (2, 3, 4), 5000mAh battery for long enough battery life, Mini-HDMI output, USB host/slave, Bluetooth (nice for controllers too when connected to HDTV). Basically this is better than a portable open Ouya. The future of Android gaming is nice. If I do get the chance to test the device for a bit, let me know what I should test on it. Should I test certain emulator performance such as N64? Dreamcast? Which games?
