Exactly my first thought too!

I don't remember any April's fools dream device having specs that high !
That should have taken serious imagination to write

I would be interested by the thickness of the device. Probably around 5 or 6 centimeters.

I really like the "warp nacelle" design. Just give me that mockup and I'll pretend to text people in public. When they ask what it is, I'll hide it in my pocket and tell them it's top secret. Imagine the buzz!

Are they serious?!

That whole article reads like a parody.

At least Ubuntu edge was a product that could have worked if they had found the cash (yes I know it was mostly a massive PR campaign)... specs were high but not "this is going to heat up so much it will burn your hand off and then run out of battery" stupid, and the SW goal of docking your phone and having it run a full DE is realistic and something people might actually have used!

AI on a phone...WEW!

Maybe what they mean is that all devices will be part of a massive botnet

What Turing should do is create a phone like what they have now, but with physically separate RAM for the modem and CPU like the neo900 guys are doing, and then write a small program to monitor the modem's power consumption etc.

That would give them a serious unique selling point, it's achievable, and it fits their stated privacy/security aims. It might also gain them some much needed credibility.

This Cadenza thing is sure a right move for them, I mean consider the target segment; anyone who swallows the bait and has money enough to go for it is such a prize customer!
I would pay for customers like this, and still make a killing!

That Swordfish OS is interesting: http://devpost.com/software/swordfish-os
Assembly, visual-basic. I wonder is it easily portable to J1?

This outer blueprint stuff is really out there.

You can even have conference call with yourself. Quad nano SIM! Where's the "Shut up and take my money" button?
