Now we're talking about the device's touch input capabilities.
By the world for smartphones, anyhow. The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx series is 3,300mAh. This is 3,000mAh.
So yep, we're getting a demo of a poker game that's using the same 27-inch computer. The key feature is that you can hold your cards with your Android smartphone so that nobody else sees your hand. Neat, but hey -- cards never run out of batteries.
He takes out a black glove.
"Even with a glove, you can touch the screen."
It looks leather, for what it's worth.
"A new technology to make your life more convenient," Yu says.
Ooh, it's cool to see Huawei doing gloved touch sensitivity. Nokia brought this out first with the Lumia 920 and 800 series. I wore fuzzy black gloves in a video to prove it and looked like I had muppet hands.
Another Nokia-inspired trick, perhaps with the augmented reality. CityLens is Nokia's app. (It doesn't work that well.)
Skaugen says Comcast and Intel have a new home box that puts live content and on demand content on your computer without a set top box or a TV. This is coming later this year, he says.
feature: augmented reality GPS navigation.
feature: smart reading: select a word and define or translate
Xfinity home TV gateway allowing full streaming of pay cable content. Sounds similar to what Roku announced yesterday.
I like the Smart Reading tool to define or translate a word. Usually highlighting is just for copy.paste. Huawei hasn't traditionally rolled out software.
There's also a deal with Bouygues Telecom to get some of that stame content to phones. All this is for Windows 8 machines by the way.
"Perceptual computing" Experience time.
feature: "floating windows." it's exactly how it sounds: true windows on a mobile device.
Now floating windows (as in isolate browser tabs) is a Samsung trick, you see it on the Galaxy S3 and the Note 2.
Finally: Perceptual computing. Skaugen says 2013 will bring eyes, ears and voice to PC interactions. The company wants to put better "eyes and ears" to computers with the use of sensors.
Yu is talking about the need to truly multitask, which stands in fundamental opposition to the mobile trends as of late.
What's better jargon, perceptual computing or computational photography?
Last year the company demoed this with a partnership with Nuance's Dragon. This year will include the software in more computers. Already on Dells, Skaugen says.
They've designed the UI to be compatible for one-hand use. So for example, the keyboard doesn't span the entire width; it shifts to the side of the phone.
Hmmm looks like Intel's using the same pic of Apple's "Retina Display" eyeball on its slide deck.
Quick Power Control technology is what supposedly reduced power...but I'd like to know how. Huawei is a networking powerhouse, so this makes sense.
Yu talking about Huawei's power-saving tech, giving a 10% figure for operational savings and 20% figure for connectivity savings. So 30% in total, according to Huawei's math.
Now we're getting a demo of this working on a Windows 8 machine. It just scanned a face to open it up.
25% less time to charge, Huawei says, compared to the Samsung Galaxy S3.
I have to take back what I said before about battery...I was thinking he was talking about the Ascend D2 with 3,000mAH rather than the Ascend Mate's 4000mAh battery. Yeah, that wins.
Wi-Fi speeds of up to 150Mbps.
In order for face recognition to really work, I want to never know it's working. Staring at the screen awkwardly for a few seconds isn't natural.
