Thoughts on the Sony VAIO Flip


Recommended Posts

I gave my thoughts on the Samsung ATIV Q a while back and since that device has been hampered (supposedly with patent related issues) I started eyeing other devices in the mean time.


With the Q on the backburner and the Asus Trio only available in Australia (no word on US deployment) the idea of a dual OS machine is beyond reach for now. So i will have to fall back on a getting non-dual OS machine. 


With that decision, I'm now looking at both the Acer R7 and Sony VAIO Flip. With the Sony taking the lead so far.


has anyone else seen the R7 or the Flip (either in person or in articles) and felt that it may be worthy.

Need maybe not 100 % but it does help when want to be in tablet mode which is about 80%. I went to best buy and tried it and fell in love with it, so I bought it on the spot. I opened it up last night and it seems the Wifi and SSD drive can be upgraded. So far its working pretty well. Doing battery tests on it now.

Over a week with the Flip and it has exceeded my expectations. I do find the tablet mode is quite useful. I have yet to use the presentation mode though. The only sore note is the fan. To me its quiet enough in normal usage, but when using intensive apps, the fan can get loud. The other is battery life, which I've only gotten up to 5-6 hours on it.

Beyond those two cons, its really nice. I've enen installed the newer bluestacks and can use some of the android apps that I really love on it.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
