The-Motorola-CloudBB-HMC3260 is a desktop definitely unlike any other. Others have already unleashed a product, which cannot qualify as standard and that is the Android-based ViewSonic monitor. One differs in this situation is the fact that Motorola’s new product is, in fact, a fully-fledged desktop computer. It is evident that Google have been trying to issue an Android-based system for a while, but many people think that the OS is not ready for such a huge leap forward. The result is actually in front of our eyes in the face of this new product. Whether it behaves well, we can see in the next few lines.
The Diminished Hardware
The specifics of this product can in no way be called outstanding. The full list includes an 18-inch 1366×768 pixels-touchscreen, 1-GHz- Freescale- i.MX53 -ARM -Cortex- A8 -CPU, 1-GB of RAM and 4-GB of internal- storage. It is clear that, in today’s ever-developing world, this configuration will not be able to hold any grounds. It is an interesting experiment though, and some of us might like to give it a shot. The greatest challenge for this product is the fact that this processor may not be able to withstand the burden which the resolution will offer.
This bold experiment is something which will provide great interest for many. However, many Android fans will be disappointed by the fact that most probably the product will see daylight only in China. For those of us, who cannot pop by and grab a piece, it would be completely pointless to order online. The future of Android desktop technologies is uncertain, and this is why it is recommended for even die-hard Android fans to patiently wait until they release a newer product.
The OS and its Power
For now, the new product is running on an Android Gingerbread mark 2.3.4. This, of course, gives it no better qualities than your regular modern, smart phone. So if, you are expecting a fully operational desktop computer, you will be completely disappointed. For gaming fans, you should be aware that the new system will not even run regular Windows-based games. Standard Android application will of course work like a charm, and it would be great to run Angry Birds in such a resolution. But, in general, it is advised to wait for a better model to come around.
The Target Audience
The verdict states that this computer will be perfectly suitable for children of smaller ages and people who do not require anything special from their home computer. The pricing is still unknown, but looking at the model itself, they have definitely gone out of their way to spruce the looks a bit. This will probably give the new Motorola CloudBB a price of at least $400, which could mean that a purchase of one is completely pointless. If you want the functions provided from this desktop, and do not mind smaller resolutions, you can be completely satisfied with a standard smartphone for much less money.
The Motorola CloudBB is definitely a project which has a lot of dreaming put in it. However, the whole concept up to know is kind of pointless. The computer is daring in its tries to introduce a new OS for desktops. However, with a configuration like that and such weak software packages, it can hardly serve any real purpose. Still, this is probably just an experiment and we can expect a lot more new products operating the Android OS in the future. Only time will tell what will come out of this.
