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.
This new Intel Windows 8 Ultrabook is quite thin and compact and it comes with a touch screen.
Acer shows this Intel powered Windows 8 convertible.
This new Windows 8 RT on ARM device is a bit like the Asus Transformer Prime but Asus does not want to call it a Transformer Book, it’s running Windows on ARM only, no dual-boot with Android for now (my guess is maybe they change their mind by the release of this device in October or whenever Windows 8 is released). This is kind of a prototype, although the hardware is pretty much the same as the Asus Transformer Prime with Tegra3, this one has 2GB of RAM.
This huge 18.4″ Asus capacitive tablet runs on an ARM Processor (yet unannounced) and when docked, it can switch to Windows 8 on Intel Windows 8 and switch back to ARM Android.
Here’s a sub-1KG Intel powered Ultrabook built using carbon fiber.
