Talk:Pandora - Pandora Wiki

Revision as of 09:13, 7 September 2010 by Tsh (talk | contribs) (mp3 playing time - 100hrs or 20?)

I added the full spec list from the bluwiki page with minor updates and changes. I did not update any of the existing links, though. This really needs to get done. Chip 02:22, 15 April 2008 (CEST)

Thanks for doing this - I did mean to move the information across at some point but I've been busy. When I get a Pandora board it is fairly likely I'll start to throw some more information on here and we can slowly remove the links to 'prove' various aspects of the design as it becomes more final.

OpenGL ES Demonstrated link updated. AeroSigma 13:47, 7 July 2008 (PST)

Sorry about that

I accidentally added the 'we need help' header thinking it was the Spanish page. All fixed.

Size Comparisons

Several threads on the forums have linked to pictures and videos comparing real Pandoras to other gadgets. I suggest we add some of these with permission. (The SizEasy is nice, but leaves a lot to imagination...)

Very nice. I missed that topic. I think the size comparisons should actually go on their own page (with a link on this page).
Edit: I made a page for it Size Comparisons

Expanding History

Someone who was there to experience the whole process, from when it was first announced, to when it started shipping, should expand this section. Or at least post some notes here for me or whoever feels up to doing it. --Cheese 07:25, 26 June 2010 (MEST) Created a page for this.--Tsh 19:51, 26 June 2010 (MEST)

mp3 playing time - 100hrs or 20?

Concerning this edit, I realize that 100 hrs may be unrealistic, but where does the "20 hrs" figure even come from? Was it just pulled out of a hat? Esn 20:24, 6 September 2010 (MEST)

Yes, looks like it was a rather odd guess. Currently, I measure 17 hours Power_modes. Claiming that it is impossible to ever get anywhere near to 2 or 3 times that just shows a poor understanding of where the power management is at the moment. --Tsh 03:11, 7 September 2010 (MEST)
After starting exaile with a fully charged battery and playing music for a few minutes, when I opened the lid again the battery meter told me I had 19.5 hours left. I didn't leave it on to see if it really lasted that long. --Nyan 10:07, 7 September 2010 (MEST)
The whole point of the '100' hours, and the quote from the forum is that with good power management, and if the DSP can be used to play music (with minimal support from the main CPU), some tasks can be optimised - it is not a reflection of the current state.
