@Deen0x, I think you meant to quote me.
and, of course, the speed of HDD is for long better than a microSD (and cheapest). currently, a 128GB microsd may cost 70?. a 2TB hdd may cost the same.
if clear for me. i prefer the HDD
But microSD is portable, and the OBox isn't. It's a whole different world. And the reason the microSD is so slow and expensive is because it's more focused on power conservation, which is crucial for phones. If you want a compromise, you could get a laptop, which offers a bit of both with 2.5'' drives.
a single set of roms may use 1TB or more.
currently, i must plug my external 3TB HDD to my android, to play games, watch movies, etc.
what the problem if the device come with a bay to plug your ourn HDD?
i prey for this from a long time!
First, this is already a feature in every PC. We're talking about a stationary machine here, not a portable tablet. So having a built in HD instead of an HD caddie or external HD doesn't make much of a difference, since it's a one-time setup.
Second, you could buy HD caddies for $20 that have USB connection, no problem there. They might even be USB OTG compatible, if you want to use them on Android.
and what the problem with the device? i really love the concept of a serious box, similar to PC, running windows. and no, i don?t want a standard PC with x86 android for this box. i want a powerful (and scalable) box running android.
The problem is that it's underpowered and not nearly as modular compared to PCs. They aren't expanding the Android market; they're trying to invade the PC market. That's something that they are simply not prepared for, and that's why I'm so negative.
And why wouldn't you want an x86 box? That's the core of computing. Even if you don't like Windows, which I get, you can install Linux.
i think you?re right about what may be android for small devices, but my point is focused on big devices now, big, serious and scalable.
Well, if Android is for compact devices, why would you try to force it unto a home machine? Notice that I haven't said "adapt", because it was originally adapted from Linux, which already has a pretty strong base in home machines.
