There are popular sites where people post pictures of their kids, activities, selfies or whatever. Today, you see little to no Bokeh there. Look it up in Wikipedia and you can see why it is noticeable. No marketing is required because some people will post Bokeh pictures taken with Real Sense on popular sites and your target market will signify interest with insightful comments like "Huh, how did you do that?" Assuming it's easy with an IA tablet featuring Real Sense, a portion of the "wannabe creative" niche may decide they want Real Sense to take pictures like that featuring whatever is precious to them (kids, pets and selfies come to mind). A contest with prizes might help. Something viral works better than traditional media. If it works, the $400 mainstream wannabe creative niche is not into lenses and similar distractions. Professionals willing to spend $1600 are the ones who demand lenses. Intel's 75% reduction in cost for this technology enables a different use case. I am curious whether a portion of the market cares enough for it to be a must have feature..

Pipo w2 and voyo a1 mini seems identical. Im planning to buy one. I want to connect it to HDMI and use it as a computer. The question is what options well have when connect through HDMI. For example I want to use the monitor as main screen and want tablet screen closes itself. Is it possible?.

What im suprised is the overwhelming amount of bios settings avalible

http://hispatablets.com/otras-table...-pulgadas-tirada-precio-t1257-930.html#p28275

a lot of these should not be avalible to people who have no idea of what is doing.

I personally applaud giving the owner of the hardware full access to its configuration. Although it might be wise to require an extra step to reveal settings that are dangerous to change. It's not as if the average user will even know there is a bios. Does this mean Linux can be installed on the Voyo A1 Mini?

why are you so suprised? BT tablets can also be USB powered and they are driving the screen and battery charging.

The problem for those ARM HDMI sticks is cost, im petty sure someone can make a Z3735G HDMI stick.

Many of these devices cost much less than $50, so I'm not sure the price is a problem :)

Hmm wasn't contra-revenue set up to get around the fact that PCB and extra component were needed? So that'd mean there's a limit to how small a Bay Trail can be, no?

every HDMI stick out there needs the exact same components as a BT, the one thing im not sure is eMMC, eMMC is not used on these, they are bigger and more expensive than a plain flash.

Now the Z3735G should be a lot less complex for the PCB, RK3188 has 452 pins and Z3735G has 592, instead of the 1380 of the Z3735D.

2 things that i will like to know:
1) There is no way to overclock the IGP? no software no anything? thats odd.

2) Any BT tablet running 8.1 with Bing x64? im trying to get a "USB recovery media" of one.

New $100 tablets and $200 notebooks based on Bay Trail (running x86 Windows)

HP Stream 7 and Stream 8 tablets coming in November for $100 and up

hp-stream-8_06.jpg


HP is launching 2 new low-cost Windows tablets this fall. The HP Stream 7 is a $100 tablet with a 7 inch screen, while the 8 inch HP Stream 8 has a starting price of $150. Both should be available in the US in November.

The tablets feature Intel Atom Z3735G processors, 1280 x 800 pixel displays with wide viewing angles, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of solid state storage. [...] Up until now, the $120 Toshiba Encore Mini had been the cheapest Windows tablet available in the US. Now it looks like the HP Stream 7 is poised to take that crown.

HP unveils new Stream laptops for $199 and up

hp-stream-11_04.jpg


HP is adding two new low-cost laptops to the HP Stream family. The $300 HP Stream 14 will be joined by the $230 HP Stream 13.3 and $200 HP Stream 11.6 inch laptops in November.

These are inexpensive, portable Windows notebooks with Intel Celeron Bay Trail processors, solid state storage, and fanless designs.

...But for as little as $200 you’ll be able to pick up a full-fledged Windows notebook from HP this fall, capable of running Microsoft Office, Quickbooks, or any other Windows apps that aren’t available for similarly-priced Chromebooks (we can’t really count Adobe Photoshop in that camp anymore).

Acer and Toshiba’s new Bay Trail Chromebooks now available for $199 and up

acer-toshiba-chromebooks.jpg


Acer and Toshiba introduced new Chromebooks featuring Intel Celeron Bay Trail processors this summer, and now they’re available for purchase.

The Acer Chromebook 11 is a $199 model that promises long battery life at a low price, while the Toshiba Chromebook 2 costs a bit more… but offers premium options including a full HD display.

Toshiba’s latest Chrome OS laptop is bigger and a bit pricier than Acer’s. It has a starting price of $250, a 13.3 inch display, and an Intel Celeron N2840 Bay Trail processor.

But Toshiba offers two different models. For $250 you get a laptop with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 1366 x 768 pixel display, and 11 hours of battery life.

Toshiba also offers a $330 version which has 4GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, and 9 hours of battery life.

Pipo Announces US$81 Windows Tablet

pipoworkw401.jpg


Whoosh! The prices are dropping — but the specs here aren’t improving.

The new Pipo Work-W4 is yet another “1/16″ tablet with the usual specs, but this time using the Intel Bay Trail-T Z3735F. The domestic price will be 499 yuan, which is about US$81.

Very similar CPU performance to Athlon 5350 in a fanless package, sounds tempting. I hope ASRock lowers the price a bit though.

32GB solid state storage on these laptops, but they are N2840 Bay Trail-M so they do come with SATA from Intel. I wonder if HP actually has SATA ports on the motherboard though? (Hopefully they did even though these models are called "Stream")

I doubt it has mounting space for a 2.5" drive. They push the size of a laptop up quite a lot.
