You have heard of the Acer-Ferrari laptop and a while ago, there were rumors of the Asus-Lamborghini tie up. So, right now, the decided to release the Asus VX1 notebook It has a Core Duo 2GHz T2500 processor, Intel's 945PM chipset and the 3945ABG 802.11a/b/g WiFi adaptor, 1GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM, a 120GB hard drive, a dual-layer DVD±R/RW optical unit, a 15" (1400 x 1500 resolution) screen, the Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 256MB graphics card. Expect the VX1 to ship at the end of this month. No pricing for North America yet, but expect it to be really expensive.
Pantech plans to actively market its clamshell PG-3500 model in France. The slim, compact, attractively designed model, to be supplied to Bouygues Télécom, has a range of fun multimedia applications, including a 1.3 mega pixel camera, MPEG4 camcorder, and MP3 player supported by an external memory. The phone also features wireless Bluetooth technology/USB function and JAVA technology.
Dozens of writers and journalists travelled the world to interview and observe 3G users in different cultures for Generation HERE. This methodology, Motorola says, led to a report that had a qualitative rather than quantitative approach to give a fuller picture of the 3G world.
The whole “skinniest phone” war has been dragging on for a while now. Motorola, Samsung of Korea, and VK Mobile have all been major players in this competition, and each has been pretty impressive. VK Mobile was the last crowned king in this genre, with a phone just 8.8mm thick! Samsung has responded with an even thinner model, measuring 0mm and consisting of thin air. Alright, I’m just kidding about that, but seriously, these phones are getting small! Samsung’s real response is the X828, a tiny phone that’s a mere 6.9mm!
The 6.9mm is officially the thinnest phone out there, but it’s obviously just a matter of time until it’ll be replaced, so don’t buy on the basis of slimness alone. The phone has some other cool features, so you’ll still be enjoying a decent unit far after the appeal of “the small phone” is gone. The camera here is 2 megapixels, which is beyond impressive for such a slim body. Unfortunately, even Samsung couldn’t pull it off perfectly, and the camera module part of the body is slightly thicker than 6.9mm. The screen is 1.9” in size, with 262,000 colors. That rather small screen will be your navigational guide to the built in media player of the X828. There’s only 80MB of built in memory, so I’m not sure that you’ll be able to build a decent media library on this thing. At least Samsung is showing the wireless peripherals some love, as the X828 features full Bluetooth support!
A company called Webaroo is expected to annouce a deal with Acer to sell laptops preloaded with a snapshot of the internet, in its 40GB harddrive. The internet cache is stored in an offline search. I believe this idea is not that much useful, especially getting your hard drive stuffed with all the unwanted information, since we all have Internet connections all the time.
