MOTO Development Group Demonstrates First-Ever Android / E Ink Integration

The robustness and versatility of the Android open source operating system combined with extremely energy efficient E Ink could prove to be a marriage made in heaven, as this demonstration from labs.moto.com would suggest.

The broadsheet E Ink development kit is connected to the Beagle Board running Android through the use of a custom USB driver developed by the MOTO team.

The potential for such low-power, portable devices could be promising, don't you think?

Android on E-Ink

Certainly agree that it is exciting. But, just want to point out, that this was not exactly the first ever Android on E-Ink demo. I had done one before, video and details here, Android on E-Ink , plus my demo uses the E-Ink controller and am300 host touchscreen itself rather than using an external beagleboard and keyboard.

Awesome!

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
