I am assuming he means the Lauta industrial design but with an Androidy device inside such that SFOS can be easily ported to it? What that device is (J1 / JC / Jtab clone?) is another question.
Fingers crossed.

Like cover? And move around the parts? Inside the cover? Or the whole phone inside

Hello, coming back to ask a little bit news.
Any signs of progress ?
or stagnation ?
new problems arising ?
nice solution you'd be proud to tell us about ?
small victories already achieved ?

other anecdotes you would like to share ?

Please drop some status update.

Ahaha, this old thread again

There always a problem around the corner and to undertake such a huge task as set up some kind of product will undoubtedly face some difficulties, Challenges. I don't really understand how one man can manage that. We just have to wait and see if this will be a project or not. Hope for the best...and eat the rest.

He is probobly working with his keyboard project which is a real project and much closer to a real product.

Meanwhile I think this Lauta future thing is more unicornish to speculate about. Would it be possible or even legal to reverse engineer the nokia slider with some new components inside?

First I apologise for being quiet. Believe it or not I have done my best chasing for any progress. But as I mentioned this project is not entirely controlled on my side as the keyboard, it is still moving slowly.

Keyboard cover is still under development. Resources will resume in the next few days and I will keep pushing.

As Dave mentioned I'm also busy with the keyboard project, we have started moulding and pushing for the July delivery.

Lauta doesn't mean it has to look like a Lauta. It's a form factor with the modern guts, and hopefully with experience with this tablet I can put SFOS as an option. Doing a all-in-one device will have a massive upfront cost, and hence I need to deliver the keyboard project first.

how massive? Would be fun to see some estimated numbers required in the future. 1000000?

But instead of sliding out a qwerty you sliding out a second display cointaning the qwerty. Why no one designed that yet?

Chen good luck with that keyboard delivery, no need to hurry this tablet planning. We are used to very long-jolla waits

And Chen, wake me up when it's time for one piece Lauta time, I'm out of this thread for now.

I have been wondering that too. The only really acceptable excuse for doing away with the keyboard is that it is too expensive to produce them in all the language varieties. An auto-reconfigurable keyboard la a second display with transparent key pads on top would solve that problem.

The pads are absolutely essential though. The whole point of a physical keyboard is that you can feel the button before you press it.

I'm out of this thread for now.
Finally!

The answer is unpleasent.
Someone (with massive resources) already tried it in 2011 and was burned by the market. Kyocera hit the wall with Echo concept because android was not easy to adapt to second screen and it brought near zero advantage because few software ever supported it...
Only the homescreen and video playback was merged to one picture and you could place apps on either screen but not overlap afair from seeing the device around 2012.



The few apps they made working on both screens only made it obvious that the spacing between the screens was the main showstopper back then.

AFAIK the Nintendo 3ds has a similar setup (as did the 2ds)

Maybe they should have tried MeeGo then

And I can see why. With no tactile bumps, the second screen is not a dedicated keyboard. It is just that, a second screen. As far as typing, it does not provide anything extra that a larger single screen would not. With all the disadvantages of no support for two screens that you mention.

No, what I had in mind is a keyboard with software reconfigurable key labels. The fact that it is done by hiding a screen under transparent pads is a technical detail that the users would not need to know or care about.
