Good info, thanks!
That would work for me. But we'll have to go to a store so she can hold it in her hand to see if it will be a good fit. (personally, I'd probably prefer the S8+)
We use T-Mobile, they've been great and the best for us so far, so no plans on switching... especially if they keep improving things like they seem to be.
For me, I prefer Windows Mobile... as my mobile use focus is on convenience (not sure how familiar you are with Win10 Mobile, but it's brilliant) and working seamlessly with my Win10 laptop.
My ideal solution or phone fantasy, would be the S8+ running Win10 Mobile! I doubt that will happen, so I'm waiting to see what happens with the "surface phone". But I am all about the S8 for my wife if it's a good fit after trying it out.
I think that efforts like what HPE and Dell have been doing to get very high density, very low cost ARM "blades" into the datacenter is where it is going to be. And that there will either be loads of hypervisor management used to push out workloads or something similar that does this for bare metal much like Ubuntu's MaaS (Metal as a Service) to get the ARM blades to act as much like VM hosts as possible.
It seems like that is just a list of android games.
There are a handful of Android TV only titles, but nearly everything that runs on Android TV also runs on Android, but not the other way around.
Well not all Android apps run on Adroid TV, but actually most of them do work if you sideload them. Sometimes the controls can get lost if the apps only work for touch screen devices. I have sideloaded alot of apps and most android apps do work on Android TV.
The BeagleBoard-X15 is the first BeagleBoard.org SBC to fully support Android, which will be offered along with Debian and Ubuntu images. The SBC is said to support applications including, robotics, media centers, interactive art, machine vision, home security and industrial automation. BeagleBoard.org also notes that the PRU subsystem “provides the ability to create software-defined peripherals and extreme low-latency response to events such as sensing and responding to wind gusts around a quad-copter.”
No mention of firewall capabilities. But it includes Debian and Ubuntu, also while being able to run Android.
A few mentioned potential uses are for media centers. XBMC comes to mind.
Yeah, but you can run XBMC / Kodi on a friggin Roku stick... why pay $249 for that?
That looks like a pretty significant loss. They must have been pretty sure that this one was coming for quite some time. Now they have to be thinking about how they are going to handle the rest of it since they apparently have two chips that were not covered in this case!
