This one also has the BRAVIA engine, Exmor R sensor for good camera quality, also includes a front facing camera for video-chat, HDMI output, but it’s a little bit fatter than the Xperia Arc, also includes the Qualcomm MSM8255 1Ghz processor.
Qualcomm shows 18mbitps 1080p playback but also shows support of 1080p 3D playback and 1080p 3D recording. Is this really what he meant to say, that it not only playsback 18mbitps 1080p 2D, but also records and playsback 1080p 3D as well? Might it be that the 3D 1080p modes are supported only at lower bitrates? Does that mean the Qualcomm MSM8660 Dual-core platform may be the best performing video player and recorder among the recently demonstrated Dual-core processors? Please post your insights, knowledge and resources on this that you can find in the comments.
At Mobile World Congress, CUPP was showing some Macbook laptops with a switch that I guess puts OSX in sleep mode and switches over the the ARM SoC platform and Android or Ubuntu on ARM and using the same screen, keyboard and mouse for that.
This may be the worlds cheapest Android phone, it may be sold for below $99 unlocked to end consumers without any need for contracts, it has a 3.2″ WQVGA capacitive touch screen, dual-sim support (EDGE, not 3G), runs on the MediaTek MT6516 ARM9 SoC platform. AnyData is targetting this device to the Indian and Chinese markets first, the rest of the world is also about to get access to these cheaper Android phones.
After the Huawei S7 released last year (check my top viewed video from last year), Huawei is upgrading their 7″ Android tablet with a slimmer design in the S7 Slim, capacitive touch screen, it may sell below $300 with or without 3G built-in. Huawei are also showing a mockup of their upcoming S7 Pro tablet that will come with a dual-core processor.
Asus made this Tegra2 Powered Laptop and Tablet combo device, where the tablet part can slide out of the bottom keyboard part. This prototype feels heavy though, perhaps it’s just because it’s a very metallic design.
