Next Years' Tablets: Speed!
Thanks to an EMMC bug (with no foreseeable fix), I know my days are numbered on my present tablet. I was a 7" fanboy, but my 8.9"-er is absolutely perfect sized, and I'm hoping to start doing more remote work on a tablet.
So this is what I've been hearing about next year that has be super-hopeful, and definitely worth waiting for:
- 64bit ARM v8-A (aka less 'bloatware' in the instruction set)
- Samsung is moving a lot more devs to software (good for them, though I actually want a Nexus 10)
- Google's 6 month release cycle might make ART prime-time
- BTW, Are EMMC-TRIM bugs (a) a thing of the past (at least with Nexus devices, having learned their lesson) and (b) getting enough press so warrant them in reviews yet? Seriously, that's the #1 reason to not buy an Android tablet!
Those are just what's off top of my head that made me post.. Anything else we're looking forward to in tablet-space that makes next year the year-to-buy?
