PC REVIEW- HP PAVILION X2 10T 1
Information technology giants, Hewlett Packard (HP) has been in the
business of developing awesome laptops over the years. This time around
the company wowed me with the HP Pavilion x2 10 Touch which is a great
option for kids or parents who want a cheap device to use at home and on
the road. It can be an immersive media tablet, and it’s a more-than-
capable Web-surfing machine for when you want to do some shopping, check
Facebook. Interestingly, the HP Pavilion x2 10t throws in more than 9
hours of battery life, and Bang & Olufsen speakers.

PC REVIEW- HP PAVILION X2 10T 2

DESIGN AND DISPLAY
My review copy of the HP Pavilion x2 10t comes In White and looks
especially clean and frosty and features a sturdy plastic body, which
looks quite premium to me. However, if you’re not cool with the matte
white plastic, you can choose from a more traditional turbo silver or
bright sunset red. The positioning of all of the Pavilion x2’s controls
located in the top right corner makes me wonder if HP was reserving some
space for what I can’t tell. This control buttons include buttons for
Windows and power, along with volume rocker.

The HP Pavilion x2 10t which features a 10.1-inch, 1280 x 800 touch
screen makes room for wide viewing angles. Switching from tablet to
laptop mode is also not a hard task. In order to transform the Pavilion
x2 from laptop to tablet, all you need to do is grip the display while
holding the keyboard in place, and simply lift away.

In terms of ports and connectivity, the Pavilion x2 accommodates both
current and next-gen connectivity with one traditional USB 2.0 port and
one reversible USB Type-C port. The USB Type-C port also doubles as the
power jack, There is s also a mini HDMI port so you can push
content to an external display, as well as a combo headphone/mic jack and 1280 x 720 HP TrueVision HD webcam.


GENERAL PERFORMANCE
In terms of performance the HP Pavilion x2 10t beats the E-Fun Nextbook
Flex 9 hands down though this is understandable seeing they don’t belong
to same price range. But that’s not to say the HP Pavilion x2 10t will
win a speed competition either. The Pavilion x2 featuring a 1.44-GHz
Intel Atom x5-Z8300 CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of eMMC (there is a 64GB
variant) flash storage. felt snappy during typical use cases, such as
browsing the Web with five or six tabs open or streaming a high-def
video.

This awesome multipurpose laptop sells for around N55.000.

9Mobile In Trouble Again As New Owners ‘Teleology’ Pull Out Of Telco

Published

on

9Mobile

9mobile in trouble again. According to reports reaching me , Teleology Holdings, the new owners of 9mobile ,may just have withdrawn from further participation in the 9mobile project.

If you could recall during the 9mobile crisis , Teleology acquired 9mobile, previously  Etisalat, in November 2018 —  eight months after it made an initial $500million non-refundable deposit to acquire the telco, and a cumulative 10 months after the takeover was billed to have been finalized.



Teleology Holdings, led by Adrian Wood,  a pioneer Chief Executive Officer of MTN Nigeria, eventually won the final bid — ahead of Airtel, Globacom, Smile and Helios.

9Mobile

 

Teleology Holdings’ successful bid for 9mobile was successful due to the quality of its proposed seven-man management team led by Wood, and was approved by the NCC Technical Evaluation Committee, the 13-member bank lending syndicate as well as the acquisition finance provider, Afreximbank.

 

9mobile Woes Continue

However, according to developing reports, Teleology Holdings has become extremely uncomfortable with actions taken outside of the agreed business plan, since their initial takeover, considering it has been blocked from concluding a management services contract with the local joint venture, Teleology Nigeria Limited.

The proposed management services contract would have enabled Teleology Holdings and its team of experts oversee the implementation of the its elaborate business plans including funding proposals — but that so far been impossible.

 

9Mobile

Wood is understood to have resigned from the boards of Emerging Markets Telecommunication Services (trading as 9mobile) as well as Teleology Nigeria Limited, and has already communicated his current disenchantment with the 9Mobile project to his confidants in Teleology.

According to Woods, 9mobile is an exciting opportunity to build a revolutionary mobile network that could be the pride of Nigeria. Unfortunately, it appears that we will not be able to participate. We now must stand down from further work on the 9mobile project.”

Has 9mobile become the new Econet? We can’t tell. Let me know what you think in the comments

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 15
You probably don’t need telling that Android is a very powerful and versatile operating system but Google is working on something that might end up as the direct replacement  – Fuschia.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 16

In this post, I’ll be explaining why Fuschia may actually replace Android
Kernels
Kernels are the core of any operating system, they provide the basic mechanisms around which the os can be built. A lot of the problems Android faces today is as a result of the fact it was built around the linux kernel whicj was not originally intended for it. 
As a matter of fact,  Android OS was originally meant for digital cameras so on it’s core it isn’t exactly specialized for what a smartphone should do
So what about Fuschia?
Fuschia is based on a completely different Kernel with 2 key benefits.
1. It is designed with the smart connected feature in mind
2. It’s more specific in its code and can be built on a wide range of devices
This kernel is called Zircon .
 So what’s the benefit ?
The reason that Fuschia is powerful is that this kernel runs on completely everything from phones abd TVs to Fridges and traffic lights.
One OS for everything. As more devices enter people’s homes, this would mean seamless integration among devices.
Your music could switch to your speaker when you enter a room and continue in your car when you get in.
Also Fuschia would be built around the idea of voice commands. Less tapping , More talking.
Fuschia would also solve one of the major problems of Android which is Fragmentation.

Fragmentation
Fragmentation is the reason most Android phones don’t perform as well as their hardware is capable of.
This exists because Android is a bit of a mess. It has software, kernel and drivers all working together in a slightly different configuration on each device.
That’s why Google just can’t push an update to any device out there. These 3 aspects have to be decoupled manually.
Google has little control of how users experience Android on 95% of phones.
This is a problem because these OEMs don’t have an incentive to keep your device updated. They prefer you get a new device if you want to upgrade so they can make more money.
Fuschia is cleaner built with updates in mind. Fuschia would help Google regain control of the end user software experience.
Fuschia is also written on the Flutter software development kit which is important because this runs on Android too. This would make sure Android apps run on it. You don’t expect Google to start from scratch with the already vast library of apps and games available.

So the big question –
When will Fuschia Replace Android
Considering that brands always make the 10th version of their products seem like the peak of their current product line. Android 10 might be replaced by Fuschia OS.
If it’s not, then we should be looking at the next couple of years.

The Commission also said it has approved the Disconnection of Ntel and Globacom from the facilities of IHS in accordance with Section 103 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.

The Commission informed that 9Mobile, Smile and Swift are also to be disconnected from IHS facilities and ATC Wireless Infrastructure Limited.

“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Ntel and Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel and MTN, but will be able to receive calls. Furthermore, Ntel and Globacom will be disconnected from the facilities of IHS.”
