Patrick Mannion and I tear down the Dell Streak and Archos 7 tablet PCs live at ARM TechCon.
We positioned it as the "Teardown Smackdown," but what Patrick Mannion and I found out when we pried open the Dell Streak and Archos 7 were designs for completely different use cases. Here are excerpts from our live demonstration at ARM TechCon 2010, including our take on the emerging tablet market and what kinds of designs and components selection we think will win.
great teardown info. I just wasn't able to see many of the text slides clearly, not sure if it was due to quality of them or my new HP Netbook.
we had the battle between regular cell phones and smartphones and now it seems another convergence is going to happen between smartphones and tablets/ebook I personally love to carry one device that does all as long as threre is bluethooth so I dont have to hold a 5-7" device on my ear.
