Yu makes a crack about his old age and seeing the screen. (He's not that old.)
You can take the keyboard off and hey, it's a tablet. Can run an i7 chip with 10 hours of battery life too.
Huawei is now boasting about its edge-to-edge screen with a high screen-to-frame ratio. This is the future!
Yu calling out the phone's meeting room capabilities. "Clear two-way talking within 1.5 meters," the slide says.
Wow, some big claims by Yu here about the "most advanced camera." He sure isn't impressing our camera expert Lori Grunin, who scoffs, "13-megapixel isn't the best!"
The tablet is 11.6-inches when it's taken off, and includes a special mechanism to remove it from the keyboard frame. There's also a graphics toggle that will change the aspect ratio for specific tasks like games and movies.
3000mAh battery. "Two-day power," as in 48 hours. Wow.
All-in-one computers now.
Only one on stage, the Vaio Tap 20.
Maybe a Toshiba in the corner.
Galaxy S3 has 2100mAh. Droid DNA, 2020. iPhone 5, 1440.
Huawei has apparently patented the technology to save battery, which is the point I was going to bring up.
Dust and water resistant. How good? Yu will show us.
Now we're onto aging desktops. Skaugen grabs a Sony all-in-one that runs Windows 8.
Yu is dumping water on the device with a pitcher, right on stage.
I think the battery-powered all in one is a really underrated idea.
Device is fine, obviously. Murmurs from the crowd.
It's a huge battery, but you stream video and photo and keep that screen on all day and it still might not last 48 hours as claimed. That said, you can't get that much smaller with a screen like that.
He just dropped the phone on the stage deliberately. "We are not broken," he says of the phone.
Some woman in the back gasped.
"We hope we can lift people's lives," Yu says, meaning improve. "Life is short."
Intel wants to make desktop computers more wireless so you can just pick it up and use it on a table or a couch. The example? The Sony Tap 20, which can be used a bit like a giant tablet. Skaugen says the company has a new initiative to get other computers to be like this, which includes work from Microsoft, EA, and Omnitapps to produce software specially designed for this form factor.
Wow, big ecosystem focus on the wireless all-in-one. Various software and hardware partners. Intel pushing these apps towards the Windows 8 store?
So we've got a video of some folks playing Monopoly on a 27-inch, touch-enabled computer.
Back to the Ascend Mate now.
Yu just said the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate has a "compact design."
It also doubles as a poker table.
We played with that Lenovo table/tablet yesterday -- the poker game was very clever. Plus, I want a motorized, unfolding coffee table to hide it in.
The 27-inch Lenovo Horizon Table PC on demo now. I like this thing, but once you go coffee table, it's tough to go back.
Yu just claimed that the battery is the largest in the world. That's not true, in terms of capacity. I think he means length.
(Lenovo demo'd it with an integrated coffee table accessory yesterday)
