I want your opinions DF membersso here's something I've been thinking about... we've said we would like a webtop style feature... but how about we go one step further... if we make the device powerful enough why not have a full ubuntu install for anyone that wants to use the lapdock feature, thereby making this phone into a true laptop.
if it's powerful enough it would be possible.
just think of the possibilities... you could run ubuntu with a wine environment and be able to play older PC games... hell you could probably run a win98 virtual machine and play older games... you'd have full laptop functionality word-processing etc etc I've seen the webtop hacks so it's possible and with enough ram and drive space it would be conceivable.
so what do Droidforums members think of this idea?
---If you seriously want to help with this then please PM me, I'm going to start tabulating a list of people who are interested---
Our Team of people (titles will be decided later)
here is a list of possible specs... give your opinion on what you think would be good and why
here is my personal list of what I likeCode:Display: - size: 4.5" | 4.6" | 4.7 | 4.8" - type: HD Super AMOLED Plus | LCD - with scratch resistant and water proof coating Memory: - RAM: 2GB - 4GB - storage: 32 GB | 64 GB Camera: - type: carl zeiss | nikon - MPs: 13MP to 41MP - Secondary front facing: yes Chipset: - type: intel | Qualcomm | Nvidia - frequency: 1.5 GHz to 2.0 GHz (dual core | quad core) - GPU: Adreno | intel | Nvidia OS: - Pure Google Android 4.1 Battery: - Size: 3000mAH+ Body: Full Kevlar back Additional: NFC chip?
While in the RAZR HD hangout thread I had an idea... How about instead of complaining about why the RAZR HD won't have enough ram out how the s3 isn't pretty enough. Why not get a team together and pull an ouya, get on kickstarter and build a seriously powerful Android phone using the Droid forums community.4.8" capacitive HD touchscreen with an absolute minimum bezel and NO capacitive touch buttons or otherwise. simple a screen and bezel
3300 mah battery
1.5 ghz quad core processor which would be completely overclockable... or who knows maybe the best dual core that stomps all current quad cores.
at LEAST 2gb of ram if not more.
32gb of built in memory with the option to put up to 64gb micro sd card
a full HD 12+ megapixel camera and as FFC with as high a res as possible
A FREAKING CAMERA BUTTON ON THE BOTTON RIGHT!!!! yes... why the hell did these developers get rid of this.... it needs to come back
a micro hdmi port... who knows maybe we could get googorola to license us webtop to use in the device, that would be cool
complete AOSP built with a completely unlocked bootloader so you can install whatever you want AOKP CM10 etc etc...
instead of charging the bazillions of dollars most manufacturers charge make only a little bit on each device, don't break even, and don't lose money,but definitely don't double the development cost.... like if it takes 200 to design the phone then sell it for 300 or 250
the best GPU out there, which allows us to play the best games... have controller support so that way we can play said games on our TV's
NFC? maybe... who knows.
However its best to test the waters on the in the forums.
Do who is interested in this i mean seriously interested.
