Huawei Mate7 vs Note4 vs iPhone6+ I let real people compare the top-3 brand high-end phablets in the world, among Huawei Mate7 (3rd Smartphone brand in the world), Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (1st Smartphone brand in the world) and iPhone 6 Plus (2nd Smartphone brand in the world). These are flagships of the high-end mass market phablet market worldwide of this moment, from the top-3 Smartphone manufacturers in the world. This video highlights display size to body ratio, camera feature and large screen enjoyment. Come back for 2 more episodes to be posted on http://ARMdevices.net I think the Huawei Mate7 (which I have been using for the past 3 months) is the best phablet among those 3. Check back before MWC in the next 2-3 days for my review of my Huawei Mate7.

Nice demos -- I'd really like to see how these compare with the competitor x86 server blades (with comparable cores/blade of course) in terms of bare performance, Watts/performance and cost$/performance ...

ZTE ZX296702 Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 for Set-top-boxes at Linaro Connect The Linaro ZTE Landing Team engineers talk about optimizing Android Kitkat boot time using TuxOnIce hibernation mechanism on ZTE SmartTV board. The net result is that it takes around 10 seconds to get into the Android home screen from a fresh power-on compared to the original over 30 seconds bootup time among other optimizations that they are doing for the ZTE Powered Set-top-box which is in millions of homes in China and around the world. http://armdevices.net/2015/02/20/zte-zx296702-dual-core-arm-cortex-a9-for-set-top-boxes-at-linaro-connect/

Google Project Ara development boards at +Linaro Connect, Greybus status with +Greg Kroah-Hartman shows the Google Project Ara prototype phone and development board, and he talks about Greybus the protocol that they are developing to make it possible for these hardware modules to talk to each other and to the host module, they can be hot swappable, they have to be able to describe themselves so everything just works smoothly, they work on the knowledge that they have from USB, PCI, Firewire and all the previous protocols that people have implemented, they work on the base level of what UniPro can do, and they go from there. This is just another sub-system of Linux that drivers plug into. +Rob Herring is the project tech lead at Linaro for Project Ara, and he talks about how the Linaro guys are working on the Kernel portions, the ARM Applications Processor modules and the Android modifications to support hardware modules hotplug in a Smartphone. http://armdevices.net/2015/02/22/google-project-ara-development-boards-at-linaro-connect-greybus-status-with-greg-kroah-hartman/

Japan Display to release a great sounding Pixel Qi like reflective/transflective LCD for the always-on Smartwatch LCD display. It uses 200x less power than conventional LCD they say. They should also make it for Smartphones, Tablets and Chromebooks! Comon Japan! Bring on the new innovative ultra low power LCD! Backlights should only be optional such as for a night time use.
JDI has announced a new LCD panel designed specifically for the low power requirements of the smartwatch market.

+Robert Kaiser I really hope so. I also hope that +Mary Lou Jepsen is getting Google to invest Billions into mass producing Pixel Qi type display for the whole Android/Wear/Chromebook market. I think the issue might have been the $1+ Billion required to tune the LCD factories into making this new type of reflective/transflective LCD for the mass market. I look forward to see how big Japan Display plans to make this Smartwatch display and to see how it looks like!

+Nicolas Charbonnier now that's being greedy ;) haha. what would be cool for me would be a semi transparent display (of the opaque-on-demand sort, if you know what I'm saying) and a bit of their 'naked' designs they're known for. And about charging I agree, it just sucks to connect a cable to a smartwatch for some reason!

A ton of delicious healthy looking/tasting vegetarian-only food as an all-you-can-eat Buffet, I like the fake meats in nice sauce with fried rice, but there are tons of much more healthy Asian vegetarian things, and all the efforts you put into eating the healthy food, you can cancel by unlimited ice cream, cakes, chocolate covered fruits and soda if you want. The normal price per person is 770TWD, they close every day at 9PM.

Simple. Get the Goat from Nisyros and the Elephant Eye for desert with a 1L mineral water. The waitress recommended me those and it was really delicious but it'll cost you 23.50€ without the tip (15€ Goat dish, 6€ Elephant Eye desert and 2.50€ 1L mineral water), which is a bit more than a 2.50€ chicken or pork Gyros from the street.
