The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Samsung is making the tablet with intel i5 cpu and USB for keyboard and hdmi for monitor.

The concept is to use it as a PC or a tablet. The software however is definitely PC desktop except icons are metro size to use fingers on touch screen.

If the software is desktop then the codec is overloaded with variety, which slows down the tablet. Real tablet use browser operating system and its extension of apps and games. So, the hardware is about 2 lbs heavy using i5 and PC structure.

The future is questionable? The industry is going with fewer transistors per tablet and lengthening battery life per session. The cloud communications is for WiFi to take over the use of ethernet, carry it everywhere. But tablet is not smartphone.

Tablet can be docking station for smartphone(ASUS)?

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Tablet PC is based on pci bus on north and south bridges, using bios to connect many peripherals.

The small ARM platform motherboards, are embedded solutions. It is on USB bus. The data storage is done on USB flash cards. Kernel has to install data storage on bootup. The wifi connection or 3/4g too has to be installed after the data storage is accessed. Then the internet is connected to access browser apps. All future apps are added later when you need them.

This platform is by no means PC capable. As a matter of fact as fewer peripherals as better. Printer, keyboard and mouse all should be avoided in favor of touch screen to change programs fast(speed dialing to change connection fast).

This mentality of starting with info from the internet and then leaving the data on the internet is new, but essential to the design of the tablet. Even docking to a USB hub should be avoided like a plague. A cloud device like the smartphone with internet resources works with big data from financial institutions, leaves productivity online.

Cloud computing is website apps(openGL accelerator for 3D video) and virtual servers access. The very reason that PC era of desktop limited to offline computing is definitely obsolete.

The small motherboards are not PC, self taught developers are still struggling with PC mentality, trying to add too many peripherals with no bios to connect them. Linux kernels uses scsi emulation memory address switching for device connections can be messy. The real connectivity has to be started in the browser with websites to be connected. Each app in each website is very well connected easily, then you can use virtual peripherals in each website.

So, packet switching(posix) can work wonders. Address switching of PC peripherals are no longer practical. Unless they are available in data center servers.

If all the data is online, then the new motherboards can be used efficiently without adding many PC peripherals on the USB bus and loaded with too many unused USB drivers.

ARM platforms are slowly designed to be used same as PC. But uses hdmi on TV as monitor. Then add wifi to connect to internet. Touch screen is used to switch apps whether it is website apps or widgets. Paperless society approaches in software programming is the goal(no printer). Coupons maybe delivered by email to be redeemed.

There are new accounting software Wave, which takes shoebox of receipts and do a double entry accounting service for free. Spend on credit card, income deposits at the online bank; all collected in the accounting software.

Mobile devices then can be used for financial transactions. Smartphones can do big data online. Accounting records kept and processed for income tax purpose.

The trend for software online apps is the reason for IBMPC era to be replaced by online big data storage appliances.

There is a reason for efficiency to replace older clumsy software designed for productivity but make work inefficient and clumsy.

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Facebook to have apps center, now it has apps and games, but mostly games.

Facebook using windows operating system had problems with directx, have to download Adobe flash player v11 with openGL to replace directx to use apps and games in facebook.

This trend of social network providing apps and games on webpages, is the final nail on desktop PCs.

The addition of apps may include free university courses, or Wave accounting for small business. Apps written in webpage presentation is much easier than desktop graphics solutions.

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Computer design had slowly changed from multiple bus to USB(multiple ports) but some still use DDR memory(pci bus). The obvious trick has been neglected, to put memory in L2 cache for fastest memory design. L2 cache can have multiple ports of USB bus.

So, the legacy design of IBMPC is hard to keep up with flash cards and 8 way i/o.

Because USB can be plugged and unplugged, the computer design is versatile, and handy stripped down.

Next generation tablets will have even longer battery life using all non-volitile memory even in large L2 cache?

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Paperless society thinking is free information if no printing is done and no paper delivery cost to incur.

But the reality is that the information by download can cost less than paper delivery cost. So, the mechanism of payment of small cost to download information by ultraHD has to be worked out.

One way is to pay for telco info download by special telco phone number.(60 cents payment per download).

Newspaper and magazine can be delivered very cheap.

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Paperless society means screen display of bigdata download.

Payment for download by telco inexpensively.

Then magazine and newspaper downloads need to add thumbnail google ads for extra income; and games on webpage for more new customers.

Paperless is more efficient(cost less and more features in nand flash card).

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Android is for replacing PC on the internet. But not powerful enough to be used as usb docking station for usb devices.

Most problems came with lack of ddr memory and usb drivers.

ANDROID DESIGN should go direct to nand flash from arm cpu avoiding extra bus(PCI) of ddr.

NAND FLASH(32gB) CAN HAVE VIRTUAL WIFI NETWORK!

Re: The future of tablet PC as docking station ? Paperless society video

Tablet PC is coming, It is built om arm cpu with only usb bus and nand flash cards. But in the nand flash is the virtual wifi and 3/4 g network.

It became a docking station for all the video and audio downloads. USB to send the media to TV/monitor.

This tablet for paperless society is cheap to built and flash memory saves battery usage.

Battery condition is improved by frequent fully charged practice.
