The HKTDC Electronics Fair finished yesterday, but I still have about 20 videos to upload and publish here. Please check back. And now I'm in Shenzhen, I'll try to film a ton of new videos during these next 4 days on the latest new ARM Powered devices being made and sold here. Let me know what you'd like me to film!
I expect to find lots of RK3066/RK2928, i.MX6Quad, AmLogic-MX, VIA 8850 (8950?), Exynos4412, MT6577, ST-Ericsson U8500 and more! Expect market videos, factory tour videos, PCB engineer interviews, reviews all the while I'll try to add the coolest devices that I find into the ARMdevices.net Members Store! (look in the Members Store for my updates on expected availability (please don't signup yet if you want to be 100% sure about when to expect shipping to start, I only want to add them to the store when the manufacturer is ready to do next-day shipping, no pre-orders), when I get some time, I'll also update the looks of that Members Store including the setting of email alerts for when new devices are added to the store.
Onyx releases their new 1024x768 6" HD E Ink e-reader with their own front light technology. They say it's better than Nook Glowlight but they haven't yet been able to compare with the Kindle Paperwhite. It runs Onyx own advanced embedded Linux OS for E In e-readers on the Freescale i.MX508, that Onyx has been developing for years now with multiple generations of touch-screen based e-readers that they have been releasing these past years with advanced features like annotations, highlights, scribbling and more.
Here's possibly the worlds most powerful HDMI Stick yet. It's got a Freescale i.MX6 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor inside with 1GB RAM, Bluetooth and more. Here's a first demonstration of what it can do. Software is being optimized while manufacturing is starting, it should be released by the end of this month. Members of ARMdevices.net will be able to buy it for $89 with free worldwide shipping in the ARMdevices.net Members Store.
This is awesome. Check out this sunlight readable Android phone with a 1-week battery life (not 1-month as said in the video). It's E Ink! E Ink Android smartphone prototype! As you can see in my half-hour long interview with E Ink at IFA last month, E Ink is preparing their smartphone-sized plastics based unbreakable screens to be used on the back of smartphones. Here's an awesome-looking sub-100gr (maybe it's only 70 grams! I'm getting a weight confirmation imminently, check back) E Ink smartphone. Check it out, the UI is usable on this E Ink phone even though the Android UI used is optimized for LCD, it doesn't take much for Google and others to re-optimize Android for E Ink use! Something to do with requiring the least possible UI refreshes to add/change on-screen info. The battery life is roughly ONE WEEK not one month as is said at the end of the video. I guess it depends how much you refresh infos, load data and make phone calls with it, though the screen basically always stays on, potentially always displaying relevant info all the time. It's running on an ARM Cortex-A5 processor, maybe the Qualcomm MSM7227A, to be confirmed.
Check this out. You can have a bluetooth headset in your sunglasses now, just pull down the earpiece from the side of the glasses to your ear when you receive a call and that the glasses vibrate. Anole also makes an encrypted Bluetooth USB stick storage device, it only activates your secure encrypted USB storage once you approach your USB stick with your Bluetooth smartphone and authorize the access to the data.
