New 18.5-inch Android-powered touchscreen desktop unveiled by Motorola

3

Well look what else Motorola is up to that no one knew about. They just unveiled a new Android-powered desktop PC in China today. The Motorola HMC3260. We can see why they haven’t made much of a stink about it though. It does have a 18.5-inch LED touchscreen though, so that is pretty cool. Too bad the resolution is only 1366 x 768. The rest of the specs aim more for last year though. Sporting Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread), a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of on board storage.

Pricing and availability of this desktop Android product is still unannounced but with yesteryear specs and Android OS (granted, many devices still haven’t been updated to ICS either), we don’t see it selling for a very high price tag. Plenty of people have switched over to tablets and devices like the ASUS Transformer Prime line with keyboard docks. An 18.5-inch screen would be a pretty nice addition for presentations and gaming if done right. This isn’t the one to do it with though.

Would you be inclined to pick up a desktop style Android based PC if it had, say the specs of the Note II or Prime? Would it be more attractive if it was a tablet that could be docked to a stand? It is an interesting concept. The potential is there, but we don’t think the technology or user base is quite ready for something like this.

I am the proud father of three, 3, 9, and 12. I recently upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Sony Xperia Z. Having so many kids warranted a change of pace. Let me tell you, it is mind blowing. I love Android, I love tech and I love my family. Not in that order though. I work hard, play even harder and take care of all that are around me when I can.

    This is just a tease of what’s to come I’m thinking android 5.0 will bring more of these devices up but we need a better office tool because windows 8 will have one up on apple and android just for office alone and not to mention the fact that wins8 phone, tablet and pc will all be on the exact same page I’m excited to see this concept thou…

      We have some pretty god office tools now like Kingsoft, ThinkFree, QuickOffice…. plus Google Drive. syncing and editing has come a long way. Their is still work to be done though. I see desktop Android PC devices coming soon and for much less than windows PC’s… If they plan to start taking that market share too anyways.
