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.
This video features ST-Ericsson’s second generation 21mbitps HSPA+ solution, used in the Samsung Galaxy 4G smartphone on T-Mobile. This kind of bandwidth can be used for high quality video streaming, and many other applications. ST-Ericsson is also launching the new 84mbitps Thor HSPA+ modem.
The idea is to connect your smart meter, home appliances, smart electric plugs to a home energy gateway, which then hosts a power management console on the web to let you manage your home power consumption from a tablet, from a mobile phone, laptop or any other device to access the web.
ST-Ericsson shows their new Nova ARM Processors and Thor modems, and combined they are the NovaThor. Those include the new ARM Cortex-A9 Single-core U4500 and Dual-core U8500 and the HSDPA+ and LTE modem solutions and they are even announcing their ARM Cortex-A15 solution. This video also includes some talk about where ST-Ericsson comes from and where the company is going.
The concept is pretty awesome, this small touch screen bluetooth screen that can be worn as a watch can interact with any of your Bluetooth enabled Android devices, it’s got an SDK for app developers to add Bluetooth remote functionality for their apps. I’m hoping someone make remote controlling for VOIP apps, calling contacts, and other useful Android apps on your smartphone or tablet.
