I would go for something like this if it turns out to be secure against viruses. Just to do online shopping, banking, PayPal etc. Over the past couple of weeks I had one hell of a job getting rid of viruses from computers of friends and family, including my own when I clicked the wrong link. And I'm supposed to know all about this stuff! [Yes, I do know about NoScript, Avast, AVG Spybot etc]

Interesting analysis but I personally struggle with the concept. Until net access is truly ubiquitous, (and a lot cheaper than it is currently when roaming internationally), I would personally not go for anything like this. Think about all the holes in AT&Ts coverage alone.

The most expensive part is supplied by Samsung and the OS is given away for free. Looks like Samsung has a winner on its hands in terms of profits. Can it compete with all the tablets though?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
