Archos' upcoming Android MID has been prematurely outed by the FCC, ahead of its expected launch on September 15th.

We've been historically harsh on digital photo frames here at SlashGear, callously tossing out anything that lacks wireless connectivity. That given, we're understandably interested in WonderMedia's SmartFrame; while only a reference design right now, the touchscreen frame is apparently the first to carry that coveted "Compatible with Windows 7" badge.
With augmented reality (AR) taking off as smartphone hardware ramps up to support the sort of real-time processing they demand, it's about time the first such app for the iPhone made it through to Apple's App Store.

MSI have confirmed previous leaks that they are developing a convertible touchscreen netbook that will run Windows 7 on Intel's upcoming Pine Trail chipset.

Sony Japan have unveiled their latest range of Blu-ray recorders, and since there's no such thing as too much storage they've also thrown hard-drives inside the five new models too.
