Someone needs to make a tablet with a focus on tv watching. I can see people taking these on trips and even just carrying them around the house for places they don't have TV's, like the kitchen. I would even possibly just mount one to the wall, say above the bathroom sink so can watch tv while getting ready for work. My idea includes a reasonably large screen, perhaps 10 inches. It would have a built in digital tuner and wifi. It would have a focus on viewing apps. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and VUDU would be a given as they are the most popular. A full web browser that supports flash would also be good for those sites that let you log in with your cable provider credentials. Other app accessibility would not really be needed. But perhaps email and some social apps would be good. I'm envisioning something relatively thin that would be made with perhaps some time spent being mounted in mind. Since it is a tv device, some might like to put it in areas where tv's aren't alwasy easy to put, but would be handy. Perhaps it could come with a wall mountable frame of sorts that would make it easy to remove the tablet when you wanted to take it on the go. A discreet power cable that could be pluged in while mounted would also be necessary.
Where MS cannot Dell can! new Apple Air PC alternative. i5/i7 HASWELL options - new core graphics can handle just about anything... 14-15 inch is a missing sweet spot for size replaceable battery - minumum 5 hours of business use / 2.5 gaming use upgradeable memory (4/8GB) offer mSSD slot at least 2x USB 3 with quickcharge Card reader partner with AT&T for business everywhere feature offer compact (cover?) keyboard stylist style pen / touch screen Resolution of 1080p minimum offer travel sleeve offer multiple covers must be <5 lbs... lighter is better 350 nit brightness minimum Nothing listed is technically unreachable and MS seems slow to the table (and undersized for a serious work/play combo device).
I really want an XPS 12, but I want it with a few improvements before I spend all that money on one.First, I love the design, so most of it shouldn't change. But I would like Gorilla Glass 3 on the glass instead of 2.I would also love a better and bigger battery, as the current one isn't so good. Also, as it should get Haswell, it should have even better battery. I hope you keep the i7 option (a powerful one, and obviously make it Haswell) and 8GB RAM, and I hope you add Intel HD Graphics 5,000, not 4,600, and also add a 500GB+ option. Please add 802.11ac, make the system a bit lighter and maybe thinner, an improved camera, and better & louder speakers.I love the XPS 12, but if you add these things to it, I'll buy it. :)
Just like we watch videos on youtube i want a display with such a bluetooth technology that while we send that video to the display with bluetooth it plays the video too.Along with the video play i want the device to be portable and foldable to any size so that if someone has a smartphone with a 5" screen then he can watch the video on that display (at any loving size) connecting the device to the smartphone via bluetooth keeping the phone in pocket.
HiYou've recently shown off a prototype of the XPS 11 where the cover/keyboard flips back to allow the device to become a tablet, similar to the Lenovo design. While everyone is wowed by haswell and the 1440p screen, I'm thinking you need to make a similar device but a big brother in a 13.3" size that uses something akin to the 1080 screen on the XPS 13. Why "akin"? Well you should make it touch enabled and pen enabled, much like the XPS 11. But while a 1440p 13.3 would be nice, certainly something of the quality of the 13.3 1080p would be suitable as well. I say this because the time for this device is now, so better get crackin. If you wait till Christmas, someone else will have already run with this idea.
Why is it that Dell who sells nothing but Windows and Linux systems only offers Mobile apps for IOS and Android? I know I can't be the only person who owns a Windows 7 phone. I get so frustrated when every app that comes out that would benifit myself and my company are only offered for the iOS and Android. If you haven't tried the windows 7 phone you should as it far surpasses iOS. Give us more windows apps....
I'm assuming it's going to be refreshed with Haswell/Core 4000 series. What I more or less require for the high end skus (i5/i7) Iris or Iris Pro graphics Make the dock stand a proper dock with gigabit ethernet, additional monitors, usb ports, etc (or make it an optional more expensive dock/stand) Thunderbolt and/or hdmi/displayport for a second monitor (possibly in the dock) 256 and 512GB ssd options I would like to replace a 17" desktop replacement laptop with the xps 18 tablet/all-in-one. Laptops are getting smaller these days... and I like the mobility, but I like larger keyboards and mice so if I can keep a decent screen size (18" vs 13-15" for a nice laptop) and just skip the laptop keyboard/trackpad altogether it seems like a win to me. I always prefer wired ethernet though (see dock) and use at least one additional monitor (again dock) and do occasionally play some games (iris/iris pro) and do some couch web browsing (tablet). Ideally I could remove the tablet from the stand/dock without having to unplug all the usb devices/additional monitor(s). I don't want a usb->hdmi conversion like some of these usb3 docks are doing, I'd much prefer a true external monitor connection.Other nice to haves Possibly a higher res option (like 2560x1600) wacom digitizer
Now a days..the touch phones are becoming so popular..But the important thing ,is safety..In means.while handling a touch the fullsize of the phone is needed...but while speaking its not neeeded..As people would like to talk for more than hour...so people prefer headphones..but a recent research telling that headphones are very dangerous..because there should be distance between the ear drums and the speech sound...And also the sweat may spread on the screen of the mble..That may also affect the phones..But without head phone..its too hard to carry the phone near to the ear..because of its size..so what i am telling is why cant we roll the phone into a pen size...I got this idea from seeing a new laptop which could be rolled and put it into a chart box..itz amazing..so we can use this technology for phone..to make it in a better way..
An increasing amount of homes now have connectivity to the internet, and share their internet within their own home. With the increase in numbers of "Wireless utilities" such as mobiles, printers, HDD's, stereo's, fridges, and other appliances, there is a gap in the power market where I think my product could fit in. I recently swapped my energy supplier and was sent a free gift. The gift was a home energy monitor and proved very useful. With a clip around my incoming power supply (Near fuse box) and a USB charged display I could see exactly how much power my home was consuming at all times. The product I would like to invent and brainstorm is simple. It is a pass-through plug socket. The device would be plugged into a socket, and an appliance will then be plugged into the invention. No need for it to be oversized should be about the same size as a timer plug. The invention will have the following abilities plugged in:1. A Micro-USB Socket on the bottom (Used to plug into a laptop/Computer for programming of Wi-Fi network presets)2. An Ammeter (Used to digitally record the power useage through the device)3. A Wireless antenna (Used to transmit data to the wireless router and recieve instruction)4. A Flow switch (Remotely or locally controlled to enable/disbale power throughput)5. A small display (LCD) The product is made of 3 parts:1. The socket previously mentioned2. The software to be described (free downloadable)3. A Mobile App (Free downloadable)Sockets are the only thing purchasable and can be purchased individually or in packs of differing quanities. For example A house owner buys 4 sockets (a starter pack with mains clip and USB lead included). He wraps the clip around his mains input exactly like the ones you recieve from British gas etc. He then chooses 4 appliances he would like to monitor/control. He chooses:1. His Fridge2. His pond3. A living room lamp4. His childs TV.He then downloads (free) the configuration and control software available for the product. On his mobile he downloads a similar more compact version of the software as an app. He then plugs via USB the first of his sockets into his computer. Using the software he is prompted to pick his Wi-Fi network (being picked up by the USB powered socket) and enter his network key. The socket is then greeted on the network and settings are saved to a small memory within the socket. It is allocated a unique id corresponding to the network such as Socket<serial number>. On completion of this he repeats the steps for all 4 sockets.He then places his sockets in situ. On his computer he can now see with the program, all of his sockets readings as they work. Each of the sockets recieves its power from the outlet they are plugged into so require no batteries. They are beaming out constant ammeter info onto the pre-programmed network for their own usage which is picked up by the computer with loaded software on that network (a simple pairing). The software can now be used to monitor the total power useage (by the clip on the mains emitting wi-fi ammeter info) and all sockets within Wi-Fi range. This can be displayed and monitored with lots and lots of tools as it is all read on his personal PC.Using the software he can also remotely turn on/off the socket. This is brilliant for the kids TV at bedtime (no more sneaking the TV on whilst mum and dad arn't watching). The pond has also been programmed using the software to work on a timer. Coming on at 9:00am and off at 6:00pm (except sunday). That is how flexible the software possibilites are.Also, if the man decides to go on holiday he can remotely turn on or off his living room lamp using his mobile app, and an external encrypted port into his wi-fi router protected by username and password. All of this and still monitoring the useage of his fridge in comparison to other fridges measured by other users of the software all over the world. Brilliant for encouraging true power reading consumer tests when appliances can be named on the software eg.Socket 1 = "Samsung EPL500C 42"HDTV". Does it really run at only 200W in the average home. Data can be collected and collated centrally using the internet connection connected to the PC or mobile.Lastly is the ability to expenentually expand on the power monitoring. More sockets can be purchased at any time and just be programmed to join the network. With no maximum capacity and ever shrinking technology, the scope is available to incorporate this product smaller and smaller into different designs and styles to suit many different houses and tastes.Please let me know if this has made you think. It certainly made me think.[Personal information redacted by moderator]
I need a 7 or 8 inch tablet with internal WIFI, SIM card for 3G/4G, and genuine GPS facility for bushwalking and historical research. Dongles are too fragile to use on the move and triangulation GPS is useless outside mobile coverage areas. Smart phone screens are too small for accurate off-road navigation.
