Samsung has already established of pattern of launching its most treasured Android smartphones in February and September of each year. The Galaxy S and Galaxy Note family of smartphones are among the most popular of the South Korean handset maker.
Intel has had a very busy day in China recently, making numerous announcements during a conference there. Those announcements range from new chips to a media box, but where we come in is the Android KitKat 4.4 64 bit kernel. So let’s go ahead and take a look at everything they had to announce while in China on Wednesday.
As the release of the smartphone with the 64bit application processor (AP) is delayed, the DRAM market suffered a direct blow.
Apple might have surprised its rivals by stuffing a 64-bit A7 chip into the Apple iPhone 5s. Right away, there was talk that next-gen Android models would also use a 64-bit architecture. But despite those lofty expectations, the word is that Samsung and other Android manufacturers have pulled back on the idea of a 64-bit mobile CPU powering Google's open source OS.
ABI Research says in a new report that Intel, Marvell, MediaTek, Qualcomm, and Nvidia all announced their first 64-bit mobile processors at Mobile World Congress this year, mainly because of Apple and its A7 chip inside the iPhone 5s.
HTC is one of those elusive companies that is having a hard time deciding whether to stay in or out of the tablet game. Regardless, fans of the HTC tablet concept still exist and a new render shows us a product that could be capable of bringing the mojo back to the company’s almost inexistent tablet business.
Although the previous Intel Atom architecture was only 32-bit and had some hard limitations baked in it, the new one supports both 32-bit and the 64-bit extensions, just like Intel’s other chips, although for the very first versions of this architecture, the 64-bit extension seems to have been disabled (probably to save cost, and because the OS wouldn’t need it at the time anyway).
Intel still has a lot of work to do to cut in to ARM's hold on the tablet and smartphone market share, but as we head into 2014, the company is pulling out all the stops. Today a new Atom system on a chip (SoC) roadmap detailed Intel's plans for 2014 and 2015, with the goal of increasing CPU performance by five times and GPU performance by 15 times by 2016.
Apple was accused of employing a marketing gimmick recently when it announced a new 64-bit processing core for the A7 ARM chip, which powers the new iPhone 5S. The benefits of moving to 64-bit processing on mobile devices aren’t yet clear, but that hasn’t stopped other ARM chip makers from lining up to mention their own 64-bit plans.
Supposing you were more than excited about the announcement by Apple this past week that their next-generation Apple A7 chip and iOS 7 brought on 64-bit support for processing, it may come as a shock that Android already has such capabilities. In fact, because Android is based on Linux, it’s had the ability to work with 64-bit processing for a long, long time.
Apple may be the first company to introduce a smartphone with a 64-bit processor, but it may not be long before you start to see Android phones and tablets with 64-bit chips.
Yesterday I was excited to receive a task to install ADT for Eclipse and Android SDK on my machine , I thought it would be a “piece of cake”, so with a high level of excitement I have started…. As I use my laptop with Fedora 17 (64bit) for all my developments, I have decided that I will put my Android Development Tools in it as well.
