PS3 rumored to get a price cut in March 2009

PS3 rumored to get a price cut in March 2009

According to a company briefing, or at least what appears to be a company briefing, Sony will be making significant price cuts to the PlayStation 3 sometime early next year--most likely in March.

Supposedly, the European president of Sony, David Reeves informed his staff that they wanted to become more competitive in pricing in March of next year. This seems to coincide with the launch of Killzone 2. So in an effort to push sales of the game, a price drop on the console makes perfect sense.

We don't know just how much of a price cut we're talking, and it's still unclear as to whether or not the cut would apply to just the UK or to the US and Japan as well. At the moment, a Sony spokesperson neither confirmed or denied the rumor and merely noted that information in meetings isn't set in stone.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 gets added options

Dell Inspiron Mini 9 gets added options

If you've been interested in the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 but were waiting for a few more additional features to be added, then you're in luck. What was previously only available outside the US is now available in the states.

You can add on 3G to your Mini 9 during the customization process now. Selecting this option makes it so a 7.2Mbps HSPA card is installed in your new computer, making it so you can have access to AT&T's network. You can add this feature for $125, but if you sign up for a two-year data plan, you'll get a $120 discount on the spot.

You also now have the option of adding a 32GB solid state drive. You'll have to shell out an extra $100, but for the added durability and safety of your information, it's probably worth it. All new options are available today.

HP mini-Q nettop with dual-core Atom 330 CPU

HP mini-Q nettop with dual-core Atom 330 CPU

HP should be ashamed of themselves: this poor model (who isn't really dressed appropriately, considering it's almost December) is so excited by the new HP mini-Q nettop that she's entirely failed to notice the ominous red sponge-man creeping up behind her.  I'm no lawyer but that's a sexual misconduct lawsuit just waiting to happen.  Still, you can sort of see why she's happy: the mini-Q 2030 uses Intel's dual-core Atom 330 processor together with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160GB 7,200rpm SATA hard-drive and a dual-layer DVD burner.

Football-shaped Kenwood is Ipod Dock with Speaker

Most prolate spheroid shape object is often aesthetically pleasing, makes a stylish companion for any fun-loving fashionista and it is twice as useful when it can sing. Much like the $599 B&W Zeppelin, the Kenwood CR-iP500 is oval-shaped Ipod dock with built-in speaker system; but unlike Zeppelin, it comes with a slot CD player at only half the cost.

White T-Mobile G1 finally available in US

White T-Mobile G1 finally available in US

The white T-Mobile G1 smartphone has finally gone on sale in the US, after delays saw only the black and bronze versions available at launch.  Functionally identical to the existing G1 handsets, the smartphone uses Google's open-source Android OS and, in my opinion, looks a whole lot better (i.e. smaller and less blocky) in white than in either of the other colors.
