Megan and Camille’s technology show, showing Desktop Android features on the external monitor using MHL
Here's a video by two young MHL experts. 50 million MHL devices were shipped in 2011 according to Techcrunch.com. One of the most important improvements in Android that I am looking forward to is the increase of Desktop features on Android (also demonstrated in this video: Using a Mobile Device as a Desktop Computer and Part 2: Using an Android Device as a Desktop). The usability being improved when Android is being used on a Monitor or HDTV using the MHL output of some of the latest modern phones having the latest fastest Dual-core and Quad-core ARM Processors.
The point is that the latest smartphone processors with MHL output to a monitor or TV and a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse and some of the latest Android user interface features such as Chrome for Android on Ice Cream Sandwich should provide for as smooth a Desktop experience as using an Intel Atom netbook!
ZXD Technology Development Limited shows really low cost 5" 800x480 capacitive smartphone based on the Mediatek MT6573 (ARM11 650Mhz HSDPA Dual-sim) for $120 in 5.0" and $110 for 4.3" 800x480. The upcoming MediaTek MT6575 ARM Cortex-A9 Single-core based Smartphone (1Ghz HSDPA Dual-sim) is going to cost only $10 more on each! Consider the $120, $110 prices are for orders of 1000 units at the minimum. ZXD says they do their own manufacturing in Shenzhen China.
The point here is that you get a Galaxy Note like experience at 5" for $120 (ARM11) $130 (Single-core ARM Cortex-A9), Galaxy S2 like experience at 4.3" $110 (ARM11), $120 (Single-core ARM Cortex-A9), all Dual-sim, the capacitive screens seem fine! ZXD also does cheaper Android phones with smaller screens all the way down to $50 for bulk orders!

carzapp provides a new cheaper mobile Internet connected locking system, so you can open your car using any smartphone if they give you the authorization for it, you can then add your car to the car sharing network and earn up to $2000 per month (if you have a cool car that many people want to use). They take care of 100% of the insurance for when your car is used by a user. You can choose the price per hour, price per day, you can pick and choose which people or which kind of people can use it (how verified each user is, I guess). Some regions can add up to thousands of electric cars on that car sharing network. The price can be as low as $4 per hour, you can park it based on where the owner wants to park it, or it can also happen that you can just park it wherever you want.
