    Not to take anything away from the 8cx, but why compare against a two-year-old platform already? :(

    One of the videos stated that they are comparable to the latest platforms from Intel, so why not just show that?

    Shipping in 2020 is something I can't get too excited about. Maybe when they give a firm ship date I can see some buying decisions being formulated, at least tentatively. Right now, this is like hearing your favorite grandkid is going to be an astronaut when they grow up. :)

    Yes you are right, for now they are just trying to say "hey everyone we are here". But anyway they are promising and we expect a success for them in the next 2 years.

    The battery life would be something I would be all over (for my one of my 'digital' notebooks that I carry with me every day in addition to the actual workstations I have with me too).

    What happened to the days of 'We're happy to be introducing product 'x', available right after this presentation!' ?!??!

    :D:D:D

    I don't know how Qcomm managed such a good battery life. Maybe running SD chips on <30Wh with a day or two of battery life really helps when you pair it with bigger battery.

    Well, alleged battery life so far. By the time it ships? It may even match what they state at ~2:20 of the second video above. :)
