Could AT&T be ramping up to begin shipping the pico-projector accessory for the LG eXpo? The smartphone went on sale December 7th, and is currently sold-out at AT&T's online store, but buyers have been left waiting for the optional snap-on projector; however at least one reviewer over at Geek Zone has received their sample unit.
Augmented Reality isn't just for the iPhone or Android; Nokia Beta Labs have updated their Image Space app to include internet data overlaid onto a real-world view through a cellphone's camera. Nokia Image Space allows you to upload photos to a large, collaborative gallery which maps them geographically; when there are enough images of a landmark, the system automatically creates a 3D view which can be browsed from the desktop. With this new update, you can now encounter photos - whether yours or others - when you approach the geographical location they were shot.
Having seen what looked to be FCC approval for a version of the Palm Pixi - called the Palm Pixi Plus - with WiFi b/g along with EVDO Rev.A, there's now talk that both it and a Palm Pre Plus will be headed to Verizon Wireless. According to BGR's tipsters, the two CDMA handsets will both run webOS 1.3.5 rather than anything newer, which seems to suggest a launch would be sooner rather than later.
The arrival of Pine Trail looks to have re-energized ASUS into their old, netbook churning ways, with another 10.1-inch machine using the Atom N450 processor. Available for preorder from Amazon Germany, the ASUS Eee PC 1001P keeps the Seashell styling of its predecessors, and aside from the CPU change things are pretty much on a par with last-gen netbooks.
Today's Google Nexus One rumors really add some meat to the bones of the Android 2.1 smartphone, and with the upcoming "media gathering" - which SlashGear will be attending to bring you back all the juicy details - just a week away we've finally got some solid pricing details. Both Gizmodo and Engadget have been sent leaked screenshots from what their respective tipsters claim to be the Google.com/phone sales page, suggesting a $530 unsubsidized price or - if you're willing to sign up to a two-year agreement with T-Mobile; more plan details after the cut - a subsidized $180.
Leaky T-Mobile is spilling Google Nexus One details this morning, with both BGR and TmoNews receiving internal screenshots from the carrier. Both show the same page from T-Mobile's StreamLine employee systems, which suggest that "Google, with support from T-Mobile, is scheduled to launch a new Android device in early January". It goes on to confirm that Google will be distributing the Nexus One solely via the web, splitting hardware and tariff support between them and the carrier.
Given that Amazon have spent the past few weeks shouting about the Kindle's sales success, you can't really blame Insdream for looking over there for a little design inspiration. The Insdream SX601 has a 6-inch display, like the Kindle and the B&N nook, but rather than using E Ink's Vizplex panel they've opted for a 16-greyscale-level DSTN panel.
Yesterday the Bluetooth desktop dock, today the Bluetooth car dock; FCC filings for Google Nexus One accessories are cropping up with increasing regularity. Described in the document as for the "Google Phone" - rather than the Nexus One, as the handset has always been referred to previously - the car dock looks, from the hastily slapped together diagram you can see after the cut, like a pretty straightforward in-car cradle.
Having seen the first unboxing video of the Camangi Webstation yesterday, initial impressions are beginning to filter through. Unfortunately, they're not all positive; Laptop spent some time with the 7-inch Android slate and while build quality and design are just as good as we'd heard, actually performance is less impressive. They describe the Webstation as "sluggish", with the 624MHz Marvell processor "taking a few seconds longer to load apps and web pages or respond to button presses than we like."
Updated: A second review is in, and it's a whole lot more critical. Check out why one Camangi Webstation pre-order customer is already looking at how he can return his device after the cut.
The ongoing legal battle between Nokia and Apple has gained another layer of complexity today, as Nokia demand a United States International Trade Commission (ITC) investigation based on accusations of "Apple's practice of building its business on Nokia's proprietary innovation." Distinct from the litigation in Delaware, which concerns Nokia's wireless standard patents, this new investigation would concern UI, camera, antenna and power management technologies.
