Gigabyte M1125 convertible incoming with Intel Core i-Series CPU

With Computex 2010 kicking off next week, Gigabyte have spilled the beans on some of what we can expect to see.  Among the motherboards - catering both for Intel and AMD's newest hexacore processors - there's a new GV-R587SO-1GD graphics card based on ATI's Radeon HD 5870 GPU.  However, we're most interested in the Gigabyte M1125, spotted in a thumbnail on Gigabyte's site and detailed over at SemiAccurate, an 11.6-inch convertible touchscreen notebook packing a processor from Intel's Core i-Series.

SlingPlayer Mobile for Android hands-on [Video]

SlingPlayer Mobile for Android hands-on [Video]

Sling Media have released a brief demo of their new SlingPlayer Android client, but we fancied a better play and so managed to grab a copy of the beta for ourselves.  Loaded up on a Nexus One, the control process was just as straightforward on the Google phone's 3.7-inch display as it looks on the EVO 4G's 4.3-inch screen; picture quality is decent, and while there are a lot of on-screen controls - since they're basically recreating your full set-top box remote in the mobile client - after a little use it's all reasonably familiar.  More first impressions - and a demo video - after the cut.

$5 Qik video call surcharge for HTC EVO 4G revealed

Sprint's mandatory $10 per month WiMAX surcharge on top of the basic HTC EVO 4G package was enough to get us mildly miffed in our review of the Android 2.1 smartphone, but word that we users might be expected to pay extra for Qik video calling has us even more disappointed.  According to a leaked document passed to AndroidGuys, Qik video chat functionality will be a $4.99 per month subscription, made via PayPal rather than via Sprint's regular monthly bill.

Motorola and Verizon Wireless Launching Two Droid Devices in July

Motorola and Verizon Wireless Launching Two Droid Devices in July

The Wall Street Journal's got a hot tip that says Motorola isn't planning on just releasing one new Droid device in the near future. Apparently the company wants to make sure that they grab customer's attention, and what better way to do that then to release more than one handset in the same month? If the sources are correct, then that's exactly the game plan that Sanjay Jha and company are sticking to.

Microsoft Plans for 30 Million Windows Phone 7 Devices to be Sold by End of 2011

Microsoft Plans for 30 Million Windows Phone 7 Devices to be Sold by End of 2011

Can we say "lofty?" We've barely got developers getting their hands on Windows Phone 7 prototype devices, and here we are seeing Microsoft setting a goal for themselves that, for all intents and purposes, might seem pretty far-fetched to anyone not on the Windows Phone 7 team. Sure, there's some glaring reasons why that may not (probably won't) happen, but at least we have to give this one to Microsoft: they sure know how to dream.

Motorola is Focusing on Android for Now, Talks About Tablets & HTC

Motorola is Focusing on Android for Now, Talks About Tablets & HTC

Co-CEO of Motorola, Sanjay Jha, decided to open up in regards to just about anything that his company might be thinking about for the future, which included HTC, tablets (of course), and where he and his company stand on that proprietary Operating System (OS) he mentioned a few months back. There's not a lot that we didn't see coming, and definitely no surprises here, but nevertheless it's always good to hear it coming from a company's Chief Executive, rather than the rumor mill.
