Hantech’s Siso Tablo-SlashGear’s Top 5 Products at Show Stoppers

We were notified by the organizers of Show Stoppers that the Tablo from Hantech was worth checking out, and I'm glad we did. The Tablo turns any laptop into a tablet PC, enabling the user to write on, interact with, and control the computer through two devices: a special pen, and a receiver that attaches to the top of the screen via a small magnet.

Nokia Intrigue review

Nokia Intrigue review

I've had the opportunity to spend some time testing out Nokia's new clamshell phone on Verizon Wireless.  It's a sleek design, and probably one of the better looking clamshells out there.  The device is nice and thin, measuring at .55" thick.  If you want to check out our unboxing of the Intrigue, you can hear our first impressions of the device and the new Eco-Friendly initiative of Verizon and Nokia.

AT&T clearing out old iPhone 3G stock, allowing early upgrades

AT&T clearing out old iPhone 3G stock, allowing early upgrades

This will please those hoping for a new iPhone release this summer.  It appears that AT&T is allowing customers who wouldn't normally be eligible for the subsidized pricing on the iPhone 3G to upgrade early.  The $199/$299 prices for the iPhones would normally only be available to either new customers, or current customers that have been on their contract long enough.  Now AT&T is letting customers get an iPhone before the normally required 18 month upgrade date.

This appears to be an attempt to move more iPhone 3G units and clear out the stock. This will encourage hopes of a new iPhone this summer, and this new policy would support the leaked rumors about an annual iPhone release. If there was a new iPhone being released this summer, it would definitely make sense to clear the old iPhone stock first.

This offer is only available to current subscribers, and only one iPhone per customer with this new offer.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 13 2009

This week on SlashGear, we had some great articles, taking a look at some exciting new products, and one of us got to experience Beverly Hills pampering during his trip to visit DreamWorks and HP. I had the chance to review Apple’s newest button-less wonder, the iPod Shuffle 3rd Generation. It’s a great sounding mp3 player with some quirks that may take some time to get used to.

iPod Shuffle 3rd Gen Review

iPod Shuffle 3rd Gen Review

For those of you who poke fun at Apple's design philosophy, you have some new joke material.  Not to be outdone by the single button concept on the iPhone, Apple has created a device with ZERO buttons. The new iPod Shuffle concept might just fool you for an Onion story: no buttons, proprietary headphones, and next you're going to tell me it talks to me too, right?

Apple follows AT&T, now selling iPhone contract free

Apple Retail stores and AT&T stores are now selling iPhone 3G's completely contract free.  However, you will be paying the full price of $599/$699 for 8 GB or 16 GB handsets respectively.  It was rumored that Apple would make this move following AT&T's announcement that they would offer the iPhone 3G to existing customers free from contract obligations.
