I have Joined the DualCor Board of Expert Technical Advisors

I’m excited to finally share this with everyone – I have joined the DualCor Board of Technical Advisors. I’m in great company – some of the smartest gadget geeks out there are on the board: James Kendrick of jkontherun, Chris Pirillo of Lockergnome, Greg Hughes of GregHughes.net, and Chris De Herrera of CEWindows.net. Oh, and Dave Ciccone of MobilityToday (formerly DavesiPAQ) is DualCor’s Director of Strategic Alliances.

Who/what is DualCor? They’re releasing a ultra mobile PC-type device called the cPC that has two CPUs – one to run Windows XP Tablet Edition, and one to run Windows Mobile 5, with the ability to switch instantly between the two.

With all the hype around this type of device (the Origami/UMPC announcements, etc.), it’s going to be an interesting year, to see how people use these devices. I’ve got a thousand ideas already, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one. :-) Expect the usual supply of photos, video, and commentary via podcast.

There’s more (unrelated) exciting news coming from me, too, so stay tuned! :-)

    Josh we are excited to have you part of the team! Your input is valuable to the orginization!! Congrats!

  3. Alan, no, I don’t get paid. Their original offer included stock compensation, which I declined, to avoid any conflict of interest issues.

    The whole process was reviewed by my manager, Intel legal, and all of the appropriate paperwork, agreements, and disclaimers are in place.

    Josh;
    Help me out here. I’ve been whining for years to the tech establishment about form. I really liked the form of the old Jornada with its wide screen and nearly full sized keyboard. I would like to see a full featured device like this one in a similar form to the original Jornada.

    Another point on this device specifically is the lack of integrated blue tooth for peripherals and looking at the specs I didn’t see cell phone capabilities except through the Type II slot. Is this an audio telephonic device or not? Being not that capable with setup and such, the idea of trying to establish a connection with a network using an add-on card for audio communication just seems daunting.

    Last, I am again complaining about America’s lack in services compared to overseas counterparts. For instance, Orange in the UK offers dual line services over a single device. This allows the customer to carry a single device to make and recieve both business and personal calls yet keep the billing separate. Could these folks marry up with a service provider on the provision these types of services are made available?

  5. Bob – those are good questions/issues. I don’t think there’s ever going to be a device that satisfies all of everyone’s needs, but we can always hope, right?

    I’ll bring those questions up at the first appropriate opportunity, and share what I can.
