    I hope we could get rid of proprietary software in smartphones and tablets. If Atom is the key to get rid of the ARM proprietary instructions, then we are very interested, otherwise, those unreliable smartphones with proprietary software are just another Big Brother eye. Reply

    I'll tell you what I'm most excited about. Based on the pictures, it looks like there's a hard camera button on the side. I could be wrong, that could be something else, but I love the hard camera button. It makes getting into camera mode and taking pictures, especially self-portraits, much much easier. I don't know why any of the companies ever ditched the hard button, but such an obvious no brainer has become an exception rather than the rule.

    Does anyone know what possible advantage NOT having a camera button might have?

    Signal clearance? (e.g. being able to put a radio/antenna somewhere people won't have their hand all the time, the Nokia Lumia 900, with a camera button, has something of an unfortunate configuration in this regard...) Decreased size? Shaving a Renminbi (CNY) or perhaps two off the bill of materials? Shaving another one or two CNY off the shipping costs? Reply
