Re: Expanded Android Spread on the Devices

I think you might be mistaken on the last point about app compatibility in your earlier post.  From what I understand, the change from Dalvik to ART is only a change in the runtime, not in the .apk files that the applications are written in.  That is to say, developers won't be forced to rewrite their software for the newest system except to take other new features (such as UI changes) into account, but that's no different from any other android release.

Google partnering with Indian OEMs

The article says, "Google partner with three Indian OEMs to create a Smartphone with dual SIM cards, an SD card, 4.5 inch screen, and FM radio for under $100.", but on the contrary there are not even a single OEM in India manufacturing their own mobile handset, then from where Google has found three different OEMs in India?

Expanded Android Spread on the Devices

With this announcement, the spread of Android will be expanded across the electronic devices, but the major problem with Android is its updates for the future releases. None of the Android releases in past are compatible with the existing old hardware. If this continues then this will be simple increasing the electronic waste in multiple folds. As if you change only the single device you will have to throw all of your other devices connected with it. Although it is committed that, "The software on Android One is the same that runs on stock Android. It allows audience and installers to install relevant apps and provides full automatic updates.", but this will be having many catches.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
