MateView

Huawei has always pushed the boundaries with every market segment they enter. Just recently, they entered into the gaming peripherals space with the Huawei MateView GT, a curved, high refresh rate gaming monitor. This time around, they’re going for the overall PC segment with their new flagship standalone monitor, the Huawei MateView.

The company’s first standalone monitor comes with a 28.2-inch panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2560 for an immersive viewing experience. Along with this 3:2 panel, the MateView also offers a 94 percent screen-to-body ratio for more screen space while working or watching. From a design standpoint, Huawei also included a magnetic back panel with a geometric design for a more minimalistic look on the outside.

As with most of their more productivity-based products, the Huawei MateView also comes with smart features for fluid connectivity. One of these features is a OneHop Projection function that allows you to project your phone’s display through the monitor’s base. Along with this, the MateView comes with other wireless projection functions for seamless connectivity with its MateBook lineup.

The Huawei MateView will be available for pre-orders starting August 13 in the Philippines.

Microsoft launches Windows 365, a PC in a cloud

Called Windows 365

Published

on

With technology nowadays, it’s easier to carry around a PC-like device in our pockets. Still, having the ability to lug around an actual PC wherever we go is a luxury. Laptops can still be heavy. However, in their latest product announcement, Microsoft is introducing a way to carry PCs over from device to device — at least, to some extent.

Called Windows 365, Microsoft is launching a virtual PC stored in the cloud. Windows 365 allows users to access their Windows installation on any device including those not originally built with Windows. That includes even Macs and Linux devices.

Windows 365 will be installable on eight different devices of 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

Currently, the service has not launched yet. It will launch on August 2 from Windows365.com. As such, there is no final pricing for the service yet.

Regardless, Windows isn’t exactly launching the service for consumers. Though it’s a huge accessibility tool for users, it’s positioned more for (and hence, more beneficial to) enterprise customers. It will allow an IT department to quickly install Windows on new devices.

Most importantly, companies can now easily onboard telecommuters to their workforce. All they need is a device to install Windows on.
