If your new here and want to know more about polling here in Together, see this first: https://together.jolla.com/question/16697/together-howto-polling-in-together/

The idea of this poll is very simple. Which "special" or normal other half would you like to have the most in Jolla if these other half's would be available on shop right now?

There will be 8 different Other Half options available for voting. It could be also called an "unofficial competition" for favourite Other Half.

UPDATE!

The Other Half contest for Other Half Option 8 Contestant has ended and the winner chosen by Marc Dillon (@Marc) is:

@mgbler

with Ambience Light The Other Half idea!

Ambience Light TOH: Integrated fiberglass combined with LED so that the whole TOH or parts of it glow in adjustable colors. Could also be used as WakeUp Light

@mgbler 's Ambience Light TOH idea is also available for voting in this poll as the option number eight!

Thank you for everyone in participating and please remember to vote for your favourite from the current eight different options available.

For general discussion I made a separate answer box "Chatbox" where you can add own comments regarding different other half's found at the bottom of the page.

For this poll to be honest, choose only one option from eight. No cheating!

Thanks.

These options will be wiki posts so no karma is awarded from it.

Now start voting please! What is the other half of your dreams?

Dual-sim card ability maybe for option 8 ? As mentionned here : Dual-Sim

Moved from the voting options: In order to be practical, the physical QWERTY keyboard TOH would most likely also require that the phone can always be operated in landscape mode. Just having a keyboard would not be enough on its own.

how about a more rugged TOH, probably made of hard rubber? At least one with a durable and non-slippery coating.

about full keyboard TOH: this would be nice indeed, but it has to be very compact. The phone isn't the smallest by default design and to my preference a sleek and light overall appearance of the device would outweigh the benefits of a full keyboard.

I would really love the dual-SIM option as well - especially if it was a DSA (Dual SIM Active), meaning that both SIM cards can be active and connected to their respective networks at the same time.

Maybe duplicate but it will be very nice to have an OH with a sliding gamepad with both cross and analog sticks. The analog sticks must be two and maybe realized with touchpads (for flatness).

The steam controller shows nicely how well touchpads work for gaming. Could the gameTOH be done without the slide somehow?

I was thinking to the sony xperia play smartphone.

roglio ( 2014-01-26 12:07:48 +0300 )edit

The Moga game pad exists for Android phones http://www.mogaanywhere.com/controllers/propower . A other half that has hinges and flips over on both sides and locks into place that resembles the Moga Game pad for iphone might be possible. I envision something that both serves the purpose of the Moga but also has 2 pockets for your memory cards separating your Android and Steam games and also works with your steambox.

Steampad-like controller will be very nice.

Dirk and Kimmoli are working on a new keyboard other half with switchable keyboard so you can attach a gamepad to it as well. http://www.jollausers.com/2014/09/2nd-revision-of-qwerty-keyboard-otherhalf-demoed/

How about a Phone blox like TOH where the OH is a fram with hardware connectors and layout to ad different modules depending on your personal needs. Better camera module, speaker, battery , soundchip, video output, solar pannel. it could have a standardized layout.. maybe some kind of standard could be developed in cooperation with the phone blox guys

your idea is submitted to OH contest, but you can remove it from there if you don't want to take part in "option 8 contest"

Pocket NAS Other Half

An other half with two (or, even better, four) full size SD card slots and RAID support.

NAS boxes are great for sharing files between all the devices in your house or office. The problem is that they are too big to be portable. Having NAS built into your phone means that you can take it anywhere.

SD cards currently range up to 128GB capacity, allowing 384GB from four cards using RAID 5 (or 512GB without RAID).

A great use case would be streaming movies from your phone when you visit a friend's house.

I would like to see a combined OH with these three different functions:

  1. keyboard
  2. e-paper backside
  3. IR-sender

A keyboard gives better haptics when working much with text. An e-paper backside can save a lot energy when using static information like showing a map or an e-book because e-paper needs energy only for changing content but doesn't need energy for just displaying. Also the idea of having a IR-sender would be a nice addition since IR-sender are very small.

A Pureview camera module

License Nokia technology or ask Nokia to build a Pureview camera module with 41M pixels, OIS, Xenon flash, etc. Seriously, I want to have a decent camera on my phone, not just an average one like the current one on Jolla's phone. I'm ready to pay for that because I would anyway need to carry a separate camera. With Nokia new focus, they should be happy to sell their advanced technology to other companies.

TOH that reaches over the sides like those snap on platic dropcovers for iPhones and Android phones protecting from shock damage when falling down. Non slippable rubber TOH with extrawide and high sides to cover the whole phone.

(@avhakola, have you seen this, from miniFactory?
(via JollaUser)
- don't know about its shock protection factor, though, but it's a start?)

Yes I have seen it, Nice start, but I would rather want it to be integrated to TOH.

An IR-Transmitter, to use Jolla as multifunctional remote (TV, receiver, DVD-Player, and other multimedia equipment). Maybe it's easy to implement it as additional feature to, here mentioned, other halfes.

I like that idea. IR-sender are very very small so you can this idea easily combine with other OHs!

A very simple The Other Half (TOH) add-on, that is neat if you're clumsy:
An otherwise regular TOH, but with a small loop where you can fasten a lanyard.

(A lanyard with Jolla logos could be included with it.)

As suggested and discussed in here: https://together.jolla.com/question/13475/hardware-provide-hole-for-a-leash

I don't think TOH would be the right mounting point for a lanyard.

Milo ( 2014-01-22 12:56:31 +0300 )edit

@Milo - Thank you for the link!

(Well, you should probably not lanyard-catapult your Jolla, but a lanyard could be just what is needed when you notice that you are on your way to drop it.)

... if we could have a something such as a micro-PCIe interface implemented with pogo-pins (aside the very low bandwidth i2c) into the next version of the jolla smartphone, things could get more interested as we could think of attaching high bandwidth dedicated hardware, such as graphics / camcorder / scopes / chess-engines etc. :-)

Maybe simple but it could be combined with other OTHs. Just an anti glide OTH.
