Another Video Worth Sharing: The ALLDOCUBE X1, 8.4 inch Tablet!

By Tim

This one appears for now at least to be a very decent  8.4 inch tablet, at a reasonable price and with some good specs! This initial unboxing and review comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the basics.

The basic specs are listed below:

  • Android 7.1 OS
  • 8.4 inch IPS 2560 x 1600 display
  • Helio X20 deca Core processor
  • Mali – T880 700MHz GPU
  • 64 GB ROM
  • Dual Sim or Sim and microSD card
  • WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless internet
  • 13 mp rear and 8 mp front cameras
  • Battery: 4500mAh,

So the specs are pretty decent, although we should wait on the full review to see how it does on battery life.

All the above being said, make sure to visit Andrew’s YouTube channel and  subscribe to it! Now let us get right to that video!

This device is currently available for around $259 at this site.

That is all for now,

Tim

Samsung Patents Retractable Foldable Smartphone, Also Usable as Car Navigation System, Watch

By James A.

Another day, another Samsung patent pops up, of course related to the foldable smartphone. This time it seems to be a more complex and multifunctional machine. It converts to both a car GPS and a smartwatch to wear on the wrist. Let’s check it out.

This multifunctional electronic device can be used as a smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, alarm clock radio and car nav system. The patent has been spotted at USPTO and WIPO, so Samsung really means business. It’s a flexible machine according to documents, dating as far back as October 2016 and coming from Korea. The housing includes 3 parts, like two narrow segments on both ends and a center piece.

The two side ends can be folded backwards or left as they are. The middle part is slimmer than the other two parts, which helps with flexibility. One could even make that part a transparent display or even an E-Ink panel. The two ends are a bit stiffer, so they’ll most likely hold within them the processor, battery, camera and the likes. Once you fold the device, the large middle section can be used as the main smartphone.

 

This handset can function as a dual display phone, with a front display and a back one. When unfolded, it all becomes a very narrow and wide device. We see the device placed above the steering wheel, plus a flexible watch on the wrist. This is one of the few patents that doesn’t detail a hinge mechanism, so we’re left in the dark here a bit.

Sources talk about the device opening up like a 7 inch tablet, while when closed it’s a 5.8 inch smartphone. For those wondering, the product is placed on top of the car dashboard to serve as GPS via magnetic holder. Don’t hold your breath for this happening anytime soon.

Huawei Honor MagicBook Debuts: 14 inch Ultrabook and Metallic MacBook Rival

By James A.

Huawei’s Honor sub brand came through this week, by unveiling the Honor MagicBook device. This one is an ultrabook, that comes with a 14 inch screen and an 8th gen Intel Core processor. It’s actually pretty compact at 1.47 kilograms and 15.8 mm in thickness.

Borrowing design cues from the MacBook Air and packing an aluminum body, the device is an affordable device that fits a 14 inch panel on a body made for a 13 incher. That screen is an IPS with Full HD resolution and 45% coverage of the NTSC color space. It also offers 800:1 contrast and 250 nits of brightness.

Honor MagicBook relies on an 8th gen Intel processor, either the Core i5-8250u or the Core i7-8550u, whichever you may pick. There’s 8 GB of RAM here, 256 GB of SSD SATA storage and an NVIDIA MX150 dedicated GPU, with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

 

The CPU and GPU both benefit from a singular heat pipe, which sucks the cool air from vents and blows out the hot air. This Honor machine promises up to 12 hours of usage, courtesy of a 57.4 Wh battery, which goes from zero to 70% in just an hour. As far as connectivity is concerned, we get USB Type-C for charging, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, as well as HDMI and audio jack.

Huawei Honor MagicBook uses 4 speakers with Dolby Atmos tech and dual microphones. There’s a fingerprint scanner here, placed to the side of the keyboard and the OS is most likely Windows 10. The starting price is $800 for the Core i5 model and $910 for the Core i7 one.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Need a Great Free Screen Capture Program? Try Out OBS Studio

By Tim

Tonight we have a video I just posted on our new channel here on YouTube. The easiest way to show folks what is happening on your screen is to capture your display and there are a number of tools out there to do this. Last night I stumbled on to OBS Studio.

This is an excellent screen capture program for Windows, Mac and Linux. It also does live streaming! Yeah and the bonus here is, it is free!

In the video posted below I barely scratch the surface of using this product since I was just using it for the first time and I only watched one quick beginners guide on its use. However there are literally dozens of excellent tutorials on YouTube on how to use this software.

So let us get right on to the video and see just how well this software works on my very “Cheap Tech” Zotac PC with an N3150 processor.

That is all I have at this moment, except to request that folks visit the channel, subscribe, and “Like” the videos and share them!

Google Developing AltOS Mode for PixelBook; Here’s Proof

By Radu Iorga

The Google Pixelbook may not have been selling exactly like hot cakes, but it’s got one thing going for it: the ability to experiment. The flagship Chrome OS machine has been getting action from Android, Play Store, Fuchsia and probably even Andromeda in experimental fashion. Now it’s ready to get a so called “AltOS” mode.

It’s not very clear what this mode does, but there’s a chance it’ll let people do some dual boot action on the device. Imagine booting another OS other than Chrome OS on the machine, how cool is that? It may also just be a mode to let developers boot more easily into Fuchsia OS, Google’s OS that’s under development right now. The commit comments show that “go/vboot-windows” is mentioned, so we may also get Windows as an option on the Pixelbook, natively even.

The PixelBook was by no means a bad machine, but the high price was the problem with it. It’s more than capable of running Windows or whatever other OS you throw at it. Now if only Google figured out a way to alternate between Chrome OS and the other platform faster and more efficient than those dual boot Android/Windows tablets out there… Those take even minutes to switch between OSes.

I still have my money on Fuchsia though.
