Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android is a hardware design of cellphone, using software of embeded realtime packets.

The cpu is ARM, and a dialer connects to the microwave tower, Linux apps are used to do some of the interesting feature of smartphone(browser). Now android added WiFi to get internet free at free hotspots.

ARM has analog functions unlike x86 cisc. It can have advantage of analog/digital mixed signals processing. It can also save enrgy using battery, by data compression and reduced pixel data transmission.

Android do not use mouse as input device. The touch screen has many functions to handle graphics such as pictures and maps. Laptops and netbooks lacking touch screen features are now obsoleted by ability of graphics manupulation with finger gestures.

Today, android capability are built into tablets. Which will be used all around in business and pleasure. The tablet technology is the latest achievement. Not many more functions can be added to tablets. Google instant is an illustration of realtime software development. For that reason, WiFi/n will be further deveoped to handle massive parallel data transfer in any WiFi data channel.  Data transmission technology is the most important protocol to be standardized. We are proposing WiFi/n with data rate assigned by free hotspot routers to synchronized atm packets.

Have fun, hopefully WiFi/n will be available with data rate assignment in the next generation of tablets.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android adaptation of Linux 2.6.x ? It complicates a tablet desktop with Unionfs or aufs for servers to have instant data stored in rams. Desktop is now window manager. Cloud computing is browser with add-ons.

Linux desktops were 2.4.20 with KDE and gnome choice for desktop and external modem. Ethernet connection for browsers were in the kernels.

The future hardware design of tablets are now being planned, unfortunately not by android; but by ARM cpu design. There is of course another way to go. Which is multi computer design, by USB computers ready to be plugged into 128 USB ports. The non symmetrical processing has to be fell over to free computers if busy. A virtualzation approach by capacity free for all(borrowed in ipv6 connections).

This leads to software operating system of drag and drop nature to save on ipv6 addresses. The tablet is merely a display with USB connectors upto 128 ports. And USB/IF is edgeQam transmission only through satellites, fiber network or Wireless or wired.

This design concept will obsolete android very repidly, because it will not be obsoleted by ARM cpu design and fixed pcboard production. Every dynamic device is a plug-in. USB transmission centric. One tablet may last a life time just by plug-ins of newer availability. Each computer plugged in can have its own Wifi free hotspot channels.

Why do we want to litter our landscape with too many versions of androids.

Androids use chrome browser, which sped up using javascript to activate C binary files for functional operation. C binary is fast.

This could be used to replace some of GNU scripts as well(text without graphics). But unfortunately, video display is going to be html5, which is 25% slower than html4. Much slower than mpeg4/h.264 and its zoomed reduced pixels per screen.

Android basically copies Apple gui. So, people who go for consumer electronics development on TV pixel scanning technology will obsolete digital solutions using html for display.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Chromebooks are Intel demo circuits. Amazon has no stock, availability has to be requested. this means Amazon does bot purchase in large quantity waiting to be ordered on the internet.

The cost of Intel demo circuit is quite high, making the cost difference between netbooks in general and tablets, 4 times or more. ARM circuits are much cheaper, because of radio connectivity of wireless circuit. ARM also uses less transistors in its cpu to save battery usage.

Tablets will kill netbooks and laptops on small screen market.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Once you dial into the central office's connection to internet websites on DNS servers, the browser locked your functionality of your computer. You might try to use desktop to do gears to prepare uploading media to websites all at once. So that net traffic is controlled to a minimum.

But the lock on Mpeg4/h.264 and zoomed reduced pixels also locked out the kernel drivers and X86 instructions, who needs them.

ARM branch prediction instructions(thumb2) uses only 8 stages for 32 bits long codes.  Why Javascript can be supported by C language and Mpeg4/h.264 of reduced pixels as data compression.

Linus hoped 2016 will be a year for Android to come back to X86(or 390 for that matter) kernels? The chickens had flew the coop? Technology had changed to virtualization(website servers) from desktop apps too many years ago while we slept.

Tisk, tisk. Such is life when technology stopped using file switching efficiency and improved it using packet switching for virtualization. Evil is not the word when packet switching got rid of bugs galore. Prex0.4 and Mpeg4/h.264 for Dillo browser can do wonders for cellphones to be smart without MotoRola.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android started  as an operating system for smartphone proposed by WindRiver now part of Intel. Google took it and used C language codes in browser to speed up javascript functions. Android then became a browser operating system.

Browsers use Javascripts and not Linux. To use all the Linux apps, the browser operating system has to have kernel from Linux to have a stack to use apps that has kernel dependencies. So far, Google has no appeal to consumers to connect Androids to enterprise system in data centers. Google is too early thinking cloud computing, when data centers are pretty much old ethernet switching hubs. Wireless free hotspots still not yet available everywhere.

An idea can be too early for its time. Fortunately, we are getting cableTV people and Microsoft to work on Wifi traffic control, so the WiFi communications system can be built on telephone poles on every street.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android is not including wifi traffic control. It becomes a problem when router did not have webpage ip address in the DNS server of 192.168.0.1 in the router.

So, it became embarrassing that wifi kindle with android can not find amazon.com.

This is because android is behind in technology of combining hardware wifi and software wifi needs in browser. ip address of webpages has to be stored in history, and internet DNS server ip address too if clicked webpage is not in history.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android 4.0 will find themselves deep in trouble when they compile Linux kernels with GNU compilers when hal is being obsoleted by udev rules. This means all the old apps can not be used, when hal and dbus works after udev rules.

Sad that open source had to depend on GCC compilers run by only one supplier. How can we run a different compiler for Linux scripts? Every time graphics script change apps had to be debugged.

Linux is hopeless, all hardware manufacturers had to know the facts.

How to make android appeal to tablet users? Use Firefox substitute for chrome. This means Wifi connection then kernel support Firefox and future autoupdate to maintain tablet for internet protocol.

You buy the tablet then Firefox keeps it going. Mips Xburst may have to do it that way to sell tabets.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android for IBMPC? Its coming.

Expect WiFi connection. Then chrome launching to replace desktop apps.

Then you can get apps from market. Desktop computers lack mobility and can not take advantage of GPS navigator. But laptops might be usable in automobiles to replace consumer electronics. Voice using speech commands will help when you have to control mobility.

Unfortunately, most IBMPC do not have touch screen only mouse or touch pad(laptops). Someday, touch pad maybe same as touch screen if multi touch(accelerometer signal) can be applied.

Android is still designed for cellphones mostly. Not quite good enough for netbooks and tablets in content. For PC, the large screen had nothing to fill.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Adroid was originally a smartphone design with embedded operating system by WindRiver. Since then WindRiver was purchased by Intel.

In the software business now we have rich experience and big data. Rich experience is multimedia and enjoyment od video and audio. Big data is money accounts and search engines in huge data centers. Smartphones can handle big data by online banking now. Rich experience is most impressive by Dolby mobile sound presented in 2012 CES, at Las Vegas. The new iPad(3) had higher resolution for richer video experience.

Many smartphones or tablets will have office productivity in the future Windows8 or Ubuntu libreoffice. But they are mostly form filling type of office software.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Browser operating system is for servers ondemand as well as smartphones and laptops. It connects to internet immediately. If you use wifi, you do connect with internet on bootup but you have to start browser yourself if you are on desktop.

So, that ended PC era of desktop productivity(word processing). If you used email, you knew that long ago.

The computer architecture is changed in a big way. Online resources are used more often today especially social networks such as facebook for family bulletin board to keep track of your close family members. As long as you get a picture of some one, you can find out what's going on. Most people are dulls-ville though or not active socially.

Microsoft and Intel had to speed up to make huge changes to keep their business in the future. Apple is getting too rich now.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

ARM bios is basically 8 bit using thumb instruction set for 16bit branch prediction, then thumb2 for 32bit branch prediction.

Since the cpu is for embedded applications, any hardware features can have applications to run the hardware features and avoid builtin kernel features which obsoletes all older ARM cpu.

Not understanding embedded applications can fool kernel developers. So, many new arm features will be in the browser applications instead.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android and chrome can do apps and games with openGL built in.

Chrome browser on IBMPC do not have openGL built in and can not run apps and games unless you have smartphone.

Which is very strange, because Chrome on Windows had directx9 not compatible with latest openGL 3D accelerator.  Facebook had to use a special version of Adobe flash player v11 that has openGL to play games.

So, expect Microsoft to have openGL for the future.

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Android uses smartphone codec standards. OpenGL 3D accelerator for graphics.

When android is installed on IBMPC, the peripherals are often not used at all. Smartphones are for paperless society.

The limitations of smartphone lcd screen size is now adjusted by zoom function and scrolling feature to use as pdf webpages do. This means smartphones can display any size webpage on small screens.

Older laptops have large screens, but have to use openGL for apps and games with Adobe flash player v11 codecs.

So, android secrets are now moved to IBMPC to use the new 100,000 apps and games, some already in facebook website. An easy way to upgrade your IBMPC for non-desktop apps and games.

Technology of consumer electronics are changing, but its been worked around for many obsoleted laptops. Just install orinoco wifi/b; and use facebook website all day.

Alternative to Adobe flash player is html5.
I guess soon or later the most apps will work on x86

Re: Secrets of android ? Hardware design and software beyond laptops ?

Its hard to keep up with technology. html5 is now replaced by webGL.

WebGL can play most openGL apps and games. x86 has too many peripherals which will be obsoleted by paperless society. I am still getting flash players to do x86 cpus.
