Does any plans on cubiewatch or cubiephone with A10 ?
« on: June 09, 2015, 03:23:11 am »
I'm interested in wearable device (or smartphone) with minimal Linux system inside (kernel, libc, libSDL, and some wireless interface to main android phone) for organizer functions: todo list with reminders, clock.

What device do you recomend to use as hw platform ?

Does any plans for cubiewatch ? Something like Pebble Watch with minimal wearable OS not overloaded by JavaVM, JavaScript, VM, decorators, .xml ...  -- linux kernel, microusb host, some wireless and C++ native-only SDK ?
And b/w eink screen -- for free use on direct sun lighting.

This is interesting question, I'm trying to do something like this as well. Right now there are few choices like Intel Edison, make your own board or wait for 2016 for new interesting devices :-)

Nice try, but CPU frequency is too low. It cannot handle display or even touch display like smart watch should do. No Bluetooth. Ram is too low. No Android support. So it's like a classic IoT module like Spark Core or Photon.
