Verizon DROID Eris by HTC to be $99; Hero specs confirmed

We may have accused the HTC Eris - aka the Verizon DROID Eris by HTC - as having underwhelming specs this week (what can we say, we want some Snapdragon!) but according to the latest batch of leaks Verizon will at least be pricing it right.  gdgt's Peter Rojas has heard from "a very trustworthy source" that the Android smartphone will be priced at $99 with a new two-year agreement, just half the price of the Verizon DROID by Motorola.

HTC Hero Android 2.0 update confirmed in works

HTC have confirmed to us that they'll be offering an update to Android 2.0 for the HTC Hero.  The update means that HTC will be skipping Android 1.6 - as on the HTC Tattoo, for instance - to concentrate on fettling HTC Sense to play nicely with the newest version of Android.  However, the company have not given a definitive timescale for the release, asking only that owners "be patient".  Full statement after the cut.

Nintendo DSi LL with 4.2-inch displays official [Update: DSi XL for UK in Q1 2010]

Nintendo have officially announced their latest handheld console, and like the rumors suggested it packs larger displays than the DSi.  The Nintendo DSi LL will drop in Japan on November 21st, complete with twin 4.2-inch displays (compared to the DSi's two 3.25-inch displays); as before, the lower panel is a touchscreen.

Update: Nintendo UK have confirmed to Electricpig that the handheld will arrive in the UK come Q1 2010, as the Nintendo DSi XL.  We're guessing it'll have the same name and launch schedule in the US, too, though nothing is official as yet.  No word on pricing, either.

Lenovo ThinkCentre business-centric all-in-one leaks

All eyes are on Verizon, Motorola and Google this morning, with the official launch of the Verizon DROID by Motorola, but as soon as the dust has settled you know people will be asking where the GSM version of the smartphone is.  The existence of a GSM DROID is already known; however one of our readers has pointed us in the direction of a Tinhte.com video showing the handset in action.

Astak Mole intelligent IP webcam has YouTube & Twitter integration

Astak Mole intelligent IP webcam has YouTube & Twitter integration

We're not entirely convinced by the idea of naming your autonomous webcam "The Mole"; after all, when it comes to eyesight moles aren't especially known for their 20/20 vision.  Still, we'll overlook that since Astak's Mole is pretty nifty: a motion-activated IP webcam, with WiFi and wired ethernet connections, that can automatically upload footage to YouTube together with sending out email and Twitter messages.
