Mary Lou Jepsen, CTO and inventor of the Pixel Qi technology, explains more of how the Pixel Qi 3Qi screen works, shows us a bit of how she works with her screen technology in her home lab, testing the angular performance in the OLPC screen and tells how power consumption can be saved further with a few motherboard modifications to behave like the OLPC laptop (turning off the processor and motherboard when they are not needed) and more.

Kinpo Thin Client 7inch Android Tablet

Posted by Charbax – June 5, 2009

Kinpo is making a 7 inch Android tablet powered by a Freescale processor. A bunch of engineers happened to come by the Freescale headquarters with this device while I was there filming a whole bunch of other videos. I then convinced them to show it to me and to let me film it. They installed Android on a 800x480 resolution 7" touchscreen tablet device. It works pretty smoothly though they obviously have some tweaking that they still need to do before such a device can be sold. This device currently has some pretty obvious bugs like the video not playing correctly.

Android laptop: Compal Qualcomm powered Smartbook

Posted by Charbax – June 4, 2009

The worlds first Android laptop that runs everything awesomely well already!

Asus has an Android and Qualcomm powered smartbook as well, though Asus is hiding it at this point.

Acer, HP, all Nvidia Tegra based laptops, Texas Instruments based devices and Freescale based devices, all are launching with Android support.

In this video you can see how fast the current implementation of a browser in an Android laptop loads pages, while they still have optimizations to do, and I think they should try to get a full Google Chrome running on these, with support for an unlimited amount of tabs (though no need for all tabs to be active and heavy in the RAM memory).
