在 2010 年代快要降臨的今天,滿街都在售賣貼著「全高清(Full HD)」貼紙的電視和數碼產品。

每次看到「全高清」或「Full HD」,都總覺得「篤眼篤鼻」。emotion

路人甲問:「全高清?有幾全,有幾高,有幾清呀?」

路人乙答:「全高清?比高清更全囉。」

路人甲:「errr,咁即係點?」

背景

自從谷歌(Google)於去年推出以 Linux 為核心的 Anroid 手機系統以來,市場上先後出現多款以該系統為賣點的高階智能手機,如 T-Mobile G1、HTC Magic 和 Hero 等推出市面,並獲得空前成功。不過,Android 作為一個開放源碼的操作系統,人人都可由合法途徑免費獲得其源碼;而根據早前谷歌公佈的 Chrome OS 網本/筆電操作系統的計畫,Chrome OS 將與 Android 共享部份源碼,Chrome OS 和 Android 可謂一脈相承。故此我們若想了解一下谷歌下世代系統有甚麼驚天大陰謀 emotion,實在用不著花四五千元去買一台 Android 手機 emotion ;只需要從網上面把它下載回來、在電腦上試用就可以了。

或者你會疑惑,Android 是一個手機的操作系統,手機用的大都是 ARM 架構的處理器,那麼我們怎麼可以在電腦內試用它呢?過程又會否很複雜?幸好,最近已有「神人」把 最新的 Android 1.6 代號「東甩(Donut)」的源碼,從 ARM 平台移植到 x86 平台上,並製作出已包含 Eee PC 驅動程式的免安裝的 Live CD / USB 映像檔案。我們只需要一根 2GB 或以上的 USB 「手指」或 SD 卡,下載有關的映像檔案,然後用上次我在 Easy Peasy 安裝教學時用過的 UNetBootIn 小工具,不用十分鐘就能製作出一根 Eee PC 專用的 Android 1.6 試用手指,讓你在無懼影響目前系統的情況下,過過使用 Android 的手癮!emotion

購買緣起 | Reason of buying

 

一直以來,隨身攜帶的 Nokia N810 「網板電腦(Internet Tablet)」以及間中攜帶的華碩 Eee PC 901 都得靠 Wifi 才能上網。雖然我也可以以藍牙形式接駁手機使用 3.5G 網絡,但我的手機上網計劃每月只有 50 MB 是免費的,手機無限上網計劃又異常昂貴。本來各網絡商每月二百元左右的「手指」無限上網計劃是很吸引的,但「手指」只可用於 PC 架構上,我的 Nokia N810 卻無福消受。emotion

I carry my Nokia N810 Internet Tablet with me all the time and bring my Eee PC 901 with me occasionally. Both devices support Wifi for Internet connection only. Although it is still possible for me to connect them to my mobile phone's 3.5G network via Bluetooth, the mobile phone network plan that I'm currently using only offers 50MB of data transfer per month, and unlimited Internet usage plans for mobile phones are unreasonably expensive here in Hong Kong. Yes, we can still easily enjoy unlimited Internet usage with a 3.5G HSPA USB modem at the price of around HK$200 per month; but this is for PCs only, and it is nearly impossible for me to get USB modems working on my Nokia N810.
emotion

早前網上行推出了「Pocket Wifi」服務,一部細小的華為 E583X 就可讓用家同一時間把 3.5G 網絡連線同時分享給最多 5 部 Wifi 裝置;可是該計劃月費達到每月 $328(這還是網上行客戶價,非網上行客戶要 $488),而且眾所周知的是電盈 3G 網絡的質素和網絡覆蓋都不甚理想,他們提供的 華為 E583X 又有「鎖卡」,所以本來「心大心細」的我,最後也不予考慮。
emotion

Around a month ago Netvigator launched its "Pocket Wifi" plan that offers unlimited Internet usage at an expensive price of HK$328 (for Netvigator users only; for non-Netvigator users, it's HK$488 per month). The plan includes a free Huawei E583X device that allows simultaneous Wifi connections launched by up to 5 devices to share a common 3.5G connection. However, considering that PCCW's 3G network quality and coverage aren't that good, and the fact that their Huawei E583X is in fact SIM locked, their "Pocket Wifi" plan is therefore removed from my list of considerations.
emotion

近月外國 Novatel 推出的 Mifi 也引來不少媒體的報導和網友們的注意,不過它賣超過二千元的價格,卻又令我「望機輕嘆」。
emotion

Recently, Novatel's Mifi has caught a lot attention from many media and Internet users. But with the price tag over HK$2000, I wouldn't consider it either.
emotion

直至前陣子上網看見 HKEPC 介紹了 Zalip 支援 3.5G 的無線 Draft N 路由器,發現它支援以鋰離子電池供電,而且還支援市面不少 3.5G 「手指」,最重要的是它只賣七百多元!它的功能甚至比華為 E583X 和 Novatel Mifi 有過之而無不及呢!
emotion

Last month I read a review from HKEPC that introduced me the Zalip Draft N router which supports using 3.5G USB modem as WAN connection. What's so amazing is that this router can actually be powered up by a Lithium-ion battery that is compatible to Fujifilm cameras' and is easily obtainable. This extremely portable router supports majority of 3.5G USB modems, and more importantly, it is selling at the price of just HK$770. What's more, Zalip's router offers greater flexibility and features over the solutions offered by Huawei and Novatel.
emotion

就是這樣,我便去旺電三樓某店用 $770 把它買回家。我又把先前從網上行得來的華為 E180 「手指」解鎖,並去數碼通申請一個每月 $188 (+$12) 的 7.2Mbps 無限上網計畫(只出 SIM 卡,兩年約),現在我便可以享受隨處無限上網、與朋友聚會時一同分享上網的樂趣了!
emotion

So that's how I bought mine from Mongkok Computer Centre at HK$770. To get started, I unlocked my Netvigator's Huawei E180 USB modem and joined the Smartone-Vodafone 7.2Mbps unlimited usage plan at HK$188(+$12) per month (SIM card only, 2-year contract). Now I can get online with both my N810 and my Eee PC anywhere in Hong Kong, and enjoy the moments when I can share my connection with friends during gatherings!
