Sadly I cannot make a front page news post out of the unveiling of the advert, otherwise I would have done so already. I will have some marketing on the device soon though, and HPC:Factor will be getting hold of the first run off of the production line.

How did the advert come out by the way, I haven't yet seen it in the flesh?

Technically, it came out pretty good.

OTOH, contentwise, it raised almost as many questions as it answered.

The four circle snapshots in the upper right hand corner are particularly mysterious. The only one I can recognize for sure is a keyboard, and it's not clear if that's an external KB or a slideout KB hidden in the picture of the main unit.

Regards, Don

So it worked as an advert then as it has clearly piqued your interest

It is an external Bluetooth keyboard. I can tell you that much.

Thanks.

The advert can't take credit for my interest, as that belongs to the previous HPC:FACTOR discussion.

Regards, Don

PS: The thing missing for me is an indication of any ability to read pdf files. Of course, just having that ability usually turns out to be useless.

The processor does seem to give up its secrets to google, and seems to be a system-on-a-chip MIPS derivative.

It will have pdf reading support one way or another, this we have discussed with the team at Clearview.

Correct on the CPU, an AMD MISP SoC.

Thanks again.

The other thing that could be a possible plus might be a usable built-in speaker/amplifier. Even if can't really handle music, but mp3 voice lectures.

Regards, Don

I have no details on the sound sub-system capabilities. I would expect though that it will not provide pre-amp.

I was thinking more in terms of an efficient switching-mode power amp to drive the speaker.

Thanks, Don

Not that I am aware of, I am sure that we can ask Clearview to confirm it

MIPS? So not as much software is going to be hackable to work then (guessing certainly no modern PPC apps)...

Agreed, this is certainly an issue with the device in terms of expandability. That said, the base software spec itself it quite impressive. The problem exists within the games aspect, as the entire industry is ARM based.

Maybe software makers will be encouraged to start compiling MIPS versions again. Meanwhile, won't most H/PC 2000 MIPS programs work on it?

Quite a few 2.10+ apps should tick over, assuming that they can adjust to the screen resolution.

Sadly clearview haven't headed our calls to get the SDK out there yet, we habe had it for private viewing since the summer. Just think of all that lost exposure time

pdf, heh, well i suggested they talk to foxit as they (at foxit) seem to be willing to compile custom CE versions. the adobe reader 1.0 (no 2.0) might work too.

other than that the cpu selection was a big error from their part...

oh and screen resolution is 480x272 or similar. for some reason i was thinking 800x480
