  1. Yes, and that would require a bit extra on the design of the keyboard not to be problematic. On the thinkpad yoga's they have taken that a step up by having a grid lifting between the keys and physically locking the keys(!) when opened to tablet...
  2. I agree hat it clearly looks like it will be a solution hitting a larger audience than their current Cosmo. I still think they would be better of giving their Cosmo a simple double hinge, so the screen could flip over (Like e.g. the Lenovo Yoga). I can not see how this new complex mechanism will bring them anything a double hinge wouldn't.
  3. Even the portrait keyboards are aware that you must leave some side bezels to allow reaching in thumb typing, without accidental presses of the keys at the edges. And on the other hand, we would really need to curl ours thumb to press the lower left Ctrl without shifting the grip. I'm not convinced. It could be a prototype-issue, but the whole sliding-lowering-tilting mechanism looks terrible complex and fragile. But sure they might be able to improve substantially on that before a final product. see shortly after the 1 minute mark here for the mechanism
  4. I'm not quite sure what you mean be a "desktop stand", do you mean like a charging cradle? or just a mount like a dashboard car-mount? if the last, many car mounts have a common size ball head, and you can take the holding part and attach to a dashboard-part rather than an air-vent part. The cheap gravity landscape holder I mentioned a few time in the car mount thread allows to use the Pro1 either opened or closed and comes with a dashboard mount, that you could adhere to a plate, or directly to the desk for a fixed position.

  6. On the remaining known issues see this: https://github.com/tdm/android_device_fxtec_pro1/issues
  7. So now the .8 in the link matches 😜 https://slions.net/resources/fx-service.8/
  8. My GUESS would be that the flicker could be a change to an app that somehow does no go to foreground and you are thrown back. What happens if you do NOT release the ALT? That should let you navigate the tasks-switcher with Tab or shift+Tab, until selecting on release.
  9. I use it, but would not characterise it as "much", no.
  10. Never seen that. Is it related to the apps active on the list? Does touch app/switching work when you see it?
  11. It is actually attached, it is just a little hard to click. 🤣
  12. My preferred wallpaper is attached.... 😇 I named it Black_1x2.png
  13. I think the gravity idea is the best. Unfortunately most only do either landscape or portrait. And the landscape ones are not that common out there. I have found just two claiming to do BOTH though. I found this but also this kids friendly design. For both I assume the feet needs to be modified for the USB plug in portrait The pure landscape I only found in one version, e.g. sold here. Many of the portrait ones will interfere with the buttons and/or the USB plug, so a bit of search and trial&error can be expected. Ordered this.
  14. Sounds like yet another Google app that should be avoided... 🙄
  15. Feel the same way. Tried installing Dolphin that looks promising. Only to experience on install that a browser claiming to be about privacy, not just requests but requires you to give it access to location... So uninstalled before ever trying it. DuckDuckGo looks interesting too, unfortunately the build in AdBlocker does not seem very effective though, and it does not even offer a "Block Element". To add to that I was a bit surprised to see it claiming to have stopped three 'ads' on my own tiny ad-free wordpress blog - not quite sure what it was blocking though... And clicking the categories to jump to a sub-page was seen as a pop-up I had to allow. So would not say the first experience was super smooth. On the other hand it handled imdb.com better than FireFox, where it is hard to not to be redirected to their lousy m.imdb version... You have to be really quick with the request desktop in FireFox, before the redirect...
  16. @Slion Found a fix! I can MERGE two threads, and that goes for polls too (loosing the old votes obviously) So hid the communication on it to not confuse. But for the benefit of any other wanting to make a poll here a 'summary':
  17. Yes and by "modular" they could mean this separate small pcb, versus soldered to the main board. This would still make it much cheaper to replace. And similar for the 3.5mm smc board.
  18. This sounds wise, not to take it apart before really needed, while it is so hard to get a new one, or spare parts, should you accidentally damage something else while changing.
  19. I think we would be extremely lucky if any of those are standard parts. But we can hope of course. I believe we do have a close up of the small pcb with the USB, but I might remember wrong. ADD: We do got a fairly good image in the FCC doc, "photo 16" https://fccid.io/2AUCLQX1000/Internal-Photos/internal-Photos-4458316 , and the "T5_Main" on one connector, indicates it is custom) Similar goes for the 3.5mm pcb
  20. ....with all the time people are confined to be at home, expect a baby boom...
  21. To ignore it would be foolish, and to lock down the whole world is too. I wonder if it would not have been a more rational approach to this whole thing to find ways to separate in clean and unclean, at let the disease 'rage' among any below say 50 (or where you want to put the cut), as any other flu/cold, All us above the limit working should be strongly advised to work from home. Isolate the vulnerable, and use the resources on guaranteeing disinfected deliveries of whatever groceries etc needed. One could even have transformed some holiday-camps and/or hotels to safe-havens for the vulnerable. Like clean oases offering the elderly social interaction with other non-infected persons. Of course if anyone in the vulnerable group would choose to take the risk, they should be allowed to do so, after attempted persuasion. This way the economy in general could go on, and the resources used where they are needed and benefits the most. Also the groups that are vulnerable are MUCH more likely to react to any advises on changed behaviour than the younger generations.
  22. And that lasted for five minutes 😄 It reminds me of some guys talking about promises not kept and/or expectations that did not hold.... 😇 Good luck to you too - and have mercy on the manufacturers of what ever you may pre-order in the future.
