32 Inch Multitouch Display Running Android 2.3 [Video]

WHOA! Android running on a 32" or 46" multi-touch display -- Yes please! What we have here is a signage company called SKR Technology and they have developed a sweet prototype multi-touch system running atop Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a 32″ display. Currently it runs off a regular Android terminal which is connected via USB to the touch sensors, HDMI to the display port, and it fully replicates the Android interface and can also display full HD video.

Archos G9 101 Tablet shown off on video, Has great viewing angles [video]

If you are all as excited as us about the Android Honeycomb tablets coming from Archos this video should make you drool. For those that remember the last tablets they released the viewing angles were terrible and probably the biggest con the devices had. I personally sold mine because the viewing angles just weren't up to par for day to day use. It looks like Archos went back to the drawing board and these new G9 tablets are looking better and better.

Quantum Dots Future of Samsung Displays

Behold, the Quantum Leap of our time! Researchers over at Samsung Electronics have been making a full-color display with none other than the elusive technology called quantum dots. What the heck is that all about? Quantum-dot displays, they say, are not only cheaper and more energy-efficient than the LCD displays found in today's common devices, they're brighter too! Samsung currently has a four-inch diagonal display whipped up that uses an active matrix, that is, each of its quantum-dot pixels is controlled with a thin-film transistor, and the entire prototype is made of flexible plastic so it can bend with ease!

Rightware Steroscopic 3D Interface Demo [Image and Video]

It appears that our good pals on CrunchGear have got their hands on an early set of images and video of Rightware's brand spanking new Stereoscopic 3D interface that'll be working hard at impressing everyone in the world via Barcelona over the next few days. This 3D interface will be working with Android, obviously, and is based on the Rightware Kanzi UI, which if you're unaware is a platform for displaying 3D user interfaces on mobile devices, specializing in the especially complex.

Sony Ericsson LiveView update goes live: Bluetooth issues addressed says SE

Sony Ericsson has pushed out the promised LiveView update, promising improved stability of the remote display and automatic reconnection of the Bluetooth link. There's also support for a greater number of simultaneously installed plugins, now raised to 30.
  • Improved stability in the phone application (update available on Android Market since some weeks ago)
  • Improved plug-in handling and limit of number of installed plug-ins raised to 30.
  • Connection stability improved – most identified reasons for random disconnects should be fixed now.
  • There were some cases of random reboots reported, and all those reported crashes have now been resolved.
  • Compatibility with competitor phones is greatly improved, both in regards to stability and to battery life time.
  • Automatic reconnect when coming back in range improved.
As for those plugins, Sony Ericsson says there are over 30 in the Android Market today. The update will hopefully address some of the issues we experienced in our review of the LiveView over at SlashGear. You can find details on the update here.

Notion Ink Adam Displays Solaro Functionality

Rohan has just posted a video of some brand new workings on the Adam, particularly in the way of students working on the tablet. This video again is taken directly from Adam's direct HDMI output. Rohan reminds us of the canvas app, the office support, the calendar and email apps, and leads in to how one of the most important aspects of the tablet is Notion Ink's business partners.

HTC considering E Ink and 3D displays/imaging for future devices?

HTC could be experimenting with E Ink displays for future devices, together with 3D-capable screens and imaging. A job advert has tipped the company's interest in alternative panel technologies, calling for a "Baseband Design Engineer" who will be responsible for the integration and evaluation of "new display and camera technologies for next-generation mobile devices."
"This engineer will work with other baseband engineers and other disciplines to design, architect, and evaluate advanced phone concepts. The qualified candidate will have experience in specifying the optical properties of mobile cameras and displays, be capable of measuring the performance of mobile cameras and displays, and be capable of integrating those components into prototype phone designs." HTC listing
As well as regular TFT-LCD, PMOLED and AMOLED displays, as we've already seen on HTC handsets, the company would prefer that the engineer also have aptitude with E Ink and "3D display and imaging technologies." Of course, it may be over-ambitious to assume an E Ink or 3D Android smartphone might be on the cards, but there's interesting potential for low-power displays used as at-a-glance status screens.

Samsung comments on Galaxy Tab App Display issues, admits to some apps not scaling

Samsung today has acknowledged that some Android apps on the upcoming Galaxy Tab will not display correctly due to running smaller than the 7-inch screen allows. The issue here would be with apps that are 800-by-400 in pixel resolution. This problem only applies to a few downloadable third party apps, Google's entire suite of mobile apps such as the Market and maps are fully scaleable, as well as our own Android Community app.
