Best of MWC 2016: HP Elite x3 with Windows 10 Continuum on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820

Posted by Charbax – February 27, 2016

HP shows the future of computing! HP's vision for the future of consumer and enterprise pocketable electronics, the Windows 10 Continuum enabled HP Elite x3 running on the super fast 14nm (Samsung Fab) Snapdragon 820. HP offers DeskDock with USB Type-C, Gigabit Ethernet, 2x USB2, DisplayPort, USB Type-C. It outputs to a large display, with an RF or Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. HP Elite X3 has a 5.96" 2K 2560x1440 Super AMOLED with 550nits brightness "best in class".4GB LPDDR4 RAM. 64GB internal with Dual Nano SIM that can also be One Nano SIM and one MicroSD card slot. "Best in class" single touch fingerprint scanner. A second biometric authentication is the iris scanner. IP67 waterproof 1.5m for 30 minutes "all sealed". Shock-proof with Gorilla Glass. 4150mAh battery. HP even shows their "empty" 12.8" thin bezel Laptop Dock "mobile extender" under 1kg to be powered by this amazing phone! The Laptop dock also miracast wirelessly. Bang and olufsen sound. Pogopins on the back of the phone allows it to extend with Smart back-cases, a POS (point of sale) solution and I also suggest them in the video to do an E Ink back-case for long battery life sunlight readable e-reading. Everybody at Microsoft, Qualcomm, HP and even Marc Benioff CEO of Salesforce is excited about this product. HP talks about running their virtualization engine to run any x86 app through the cloud. This looks like they are all going to make sure this product gets successfully deployed on the market by Summer this year.

I think that HP should try to price the full bundle at below the current price of a high-end iPhone/Samsung, thus below $700 including the Desktop, keyboard/mouse and also including the "empty" 12.8" Laptop Dock. The Desktop Dock needs a HDMI output. Of course I'd like to finally see Google supply an Android Continuum UI alternative solution at Google I/O. I also perhaps think that Microsoft's Continuum dock is better with a cable and the phone on the table than having it docked upright.

Smell sensor for smartphones, Aroma Bit Odor Imaging Sensor

Posted by stromium – February 26, 2016

Tokyo-based Aroma Bit showcases their odor imaging sensor technology, they claim to be able to make a unique sensor to analyze the subjective matter of smell, rather than simply to analyze the contents of the gas. The setup on display shows how a bottle opened nearby produces a digital odor signature on the screen. The sensor prototype is mounted on an SD card. The device learns about the signature of each smell it encounters, becoming smarter.

STMicroelectronics STM32 Open Development Environment

Posted by Gennie – February 26, 2016

The STM32 Open Development Environment (STM32 ODE) is an open, flexible, easy and affordable way to develop innovative devices and applications based on the STM32 32-bit microcontroller family (based on ARM Cortex-M cores) combined with other state-of-the-art ST components connected via expansion boards. It enables fast prototyping with leading-edge components that can quickly be transformed into final designs.
The STM32 ODE includes the following five elements:
- STM32 Nucleo development boards
- STM32 Nucleo expansion boards
- STM32Cube software
- STM32Cube expansion software
- STM32 ODE Function Packs

USB Type-C, 2 Billion per year to be shipped by 2019

Posted by Charbax – February 26, 2016

The USB Implementers Forum comprises companies like Google, Samsung, HP, Intel and many others work together on specifying the spec of USB Type-C. It's easier to use (it can be flipped on both sides), it goes faster (up to above 40Gbit/s). Alternate modes can be supported such as Thunderbolt, DisplayPort and the proprietary mode Slimport, the standard mode MHL by the MHL Consortium. Devices shipping without display, with the 3 different ways to do display, with some shipping USB2 speed and others USB3 speed, it just seems to be a bit of a fragmentation in the implementation of USB Type-C here in the beginning. Basically consumers must make sure to understand what each device supports "behind" the USB Type-C connector.

Rockchip RK3288 is better than Intel Celeron N2840 for Chromebooks

Posted by Charbax – February 25, 2016

This video compares the Haier Chromebook 11E on Rockchip RK3288 with the Samsung Chromebook 2 on Intel N2840. They are also being compared by Moor Insights and Strategy at https://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/cor4EPWfvP97lt There are several other "latest" Intel Chromebooks from Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Asus, Acer, HP which all are running on N2840 Celeron, or N2830 Celeron, and thus for all these, Rockchip can claim to have better value, better performance and better battery life. Thus to be best suited for the worldwide education market.

Here are some of the numbers claimed in favor of the ARM Powered Chromebook in the case of RK3288 vs N2840:
80% better video performance
32% faster multi-tasking
37% faster app loading
265% faster 3D graphics
31% better power consumption for online video, Google Docs and Gmail

I have already been testing the Haier 11E as my main laptop over the last 6 months, and I can tell you that it performs absolutely great. There were some WiFi disconnect issues but I think those have been solved by Google's automatic software updates to the Chromebook. I will post a new video with my Haier 11E Chromebook soon so check back for that.

Moor Insights and Strategy has conducted a detailed analysis comparing Rockchip RK3288 with Intel N2840 Chromebooks which is available as a slideshow here: https://www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/cor4EPWfvP97lt

The idea for the pricing is that this Acer might cost about the same as a high-end iPhone or Samsung but it is to include the whole bundle of external 22" display, the keyboard/mouse and Continuum dock. Acer is trying to launch this premium package worldwide. The target market is small to medium to large size companies who can give one of these to each of their employees, and thus get all their employees to switch to ARM Powered productivity!
