Verizon BlackBerry Storm press photos leak

Verizon BlackBerry Storm press photos leak

More images of the upcoming Verizon BlackBerry Storm have leaked, this time press shots courtesy of the handset's Equipment Guide.  Already contentious is the battery panel, which appears to be a different shade; this could be because of the camera flash and the fact that it's likely a metal panel next to a plastic body, or it could be a purposeful choice on RIM's part.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

Netbooks made their typical strong showing this week, with ASUS announcing their intention to put 3G HSUPA into the Eee PC 901.  Meanwhile their N10 was reviewed and deemed the first netbook "suitable for serious gaming", a promising title indeed.  Lenovo's S10 also hit reviewers' benches, making a strong - if at times warm - case for the smallest IdeaPad, while Packard Bell unveiled their 'dot', targeted much more at the budget end of the scale.  They'll have a fight on their hands, though; SlashGear reviewed the Acer Aspire One this week too, and when it comes to value for money it's a tough one to beat.

Arguably the biggest news of the week, however, has been T-Mobile's G1 - the first Android-based handset to be officially announced.  Our sister-site AndroidCommunity.com ran a Live Blog of the whole event (and gave away a G1 to one lucky forum member), and we've got the photo galleries and hands-on video to show for it.

Canon 5D Mark II’s Raw Video footages from REVERIE, one word: STUNNING!

Canon 5D Mark II’s Raw Video footages from REVERIE, one word: STUNNING!

If you've followed our coverage on Vincent’s 5D Mark II, then you already seen the short film presentation-Reverie. I’ll say he has done an amazing job and the video image quality is excellent came out from a $2,700 Digital SLR. That was a downsized demonstration to a QHD at 960x540, and the pixel-peepers have demanded a full 1080P raw footage after the release. Here they are. Three raw videos straight out of the camera at full resolution of 1080p, "untouched in terms of color correction, exposure correction, noise correction - nothing was done to them whatsoever." Believe us, Canon will sell a ton of 5D Mark II.

[update : Canon has removed the video clips below due to high demands and apparently have exceeded the download capacity]

Our reader "MODERN ART" has kindly provided an alternate download options to the clips (read comment below)

ASUS N10 tested: First netbook ‘suitable for serious gaming’

ASUS N10 tested: First netbook ‘suitable for serious gaming’

ASUS' N10 might be a netbook, but it's certainly no Eee PC - not if your general conception of the Eee range is a basic web-surfing machine that would run out of breath even at the mention of gaming.  Mobile Computer have been putting the N10 through its paces, and one thing is clear: a netbook becomes a very different animal once you add switchable NVIDIA GeForce 9200M graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard-drive and HDMI output.
