Is this my best video yet? This is a same factory that is soon going to switch to assembling MediaTek MT6575 Android Ice Cream Sandwich phones. I hereby offer you an exclusive look inside the assembly line, see the people that build your speakers in Shenzhen China.

In the part 1 of this Shenzhen Factory Tour, I enter the Shenzhen Factory, walk around the lobby and meeting rooms before walking over to a part of the assembly line.

You can buy this tablet for $49 each at retail in Shenzhen, but it's with a resistive dual-touch screen at that price. If you wait a month or two, the capacitive Boxchip A13 tablets will be at the same price or even lower.

There are lots of boats in Hong Kong. Here we're on one that goes from the HKTDC Electronics Fair on Hong Kong Island to Tsim Sha Shui where there are more choices for restaurants.

ICS on 5″ MediaTek MT6575 Dolphin A80 phone

Posted by Charbax – April 23, 2012

I run the Antutu and Quadrant benchmarks (comparing those with my OMAP4460 Galaxy Nexus) on this 5" MT6575 Android phone that has just gotten the latest beta Android 4 ICS firmware loaded onto it in Shenzhen China. This prototype is just pre-mass production, and the ICS software for the MediaTek MT6575 is beta for testing. Mass production and full production software may be ready by the end of this month. Check back later for more news on this phone and on the performance of ICS on MT6575 devices as I expect to have this and other MT6575 samples to do reviews of the latest MediaTek ICS performance. http://www.yooe.com.cn is selling this phone for sub-$150 when bought in bulk. The MT6575 single-core ARM Cortex-A9 with ICS support is bringing quite good performance to the cheap new Android phones coming out of China.

Pixel Qi announces 2048×1536 better-than-iPad3 screen, with 100x lower power consumption

Posted by Charbax – April 23, 2012

Pixel Qi is finalizing the deals with partners about sizes and quantities to produce their next generation ultra high pixel density Pixel Qi screens, with a new very low power mode that runs at a full 100X power reduction from the peak power consumed by the iPad3 screen. Pixel Qi claims to have a new architecture that matches the resolution of the ipad3 screen, and its full image quality including matching or exceeding contrast, color saturation, the viewing angle and so forth with massive power savings. Here is Pixel Qi's power consumption versus the iPad2 and iPad3:

My opinion and suggestion for Google:
I'd like to see Google invest heavily in Pixel Qi for a 7" 1024x600 screen to be mass produced for the rumored upcoming Nexus Tablet, providing it 20 hours battery life on an ultra slim form factor, with a very small bezel if they can make it have a plastics based screen, suitable for reading Google Books, suitable for outdoor use. Google should invest the money needed in bringing Pixel Qi to the mass consumer market. And then also Google can help bring the 2048x1536 9.7" Pixel Qi screen to the mass Android tablet market.

The success of the iPhone and iPad is due to ARM Technology, but also to the investments Apple has made in using new screen technologies, Apple basically financed exclusivity for the 3.5" capacitive screen when launching the iPhone and they bought an exclusive on the 9.7" IPS screen for the iPad. Now also Apple invested the $2+ Billion getting an exclusive on the 9.7" Retina screen. Google should do the same, not only invest heavily to optimize Android on all the ARM Processors, Google should also invest the money needed in new screen technologies such as Pixel Qi LCD and use that for their "Google Hardware" Nexus devices but then also instantly allow access to the new screen technologies to every other Android hardware maker.
