Back in June a leaked roadmap from Nokia surfaced that pointed to some of the future products the phone maker had in the works. On that list was the Nokia X7. So far, we haven't seen any leaked shots or details of the X7 specifically.
Super Talent has unveiled a new flash drive that has a design meant to be taken with you everywhere you go. The design of the CKB flash drive lets you keep it on any keychain you might carry, no matter how fat that keychain is. The CKB is made from metal and comes in two colors.
Panasonic has announced a new convertible tablet notebook called the CF-C1 that is designed for workers that have to wear gloves and still want a touchscreen device. The tablet uses a resistive touchscreen and has a warranty that covers it for accidental damage.
Galaxy makes all sorts of computer hardware and peripherals and part of the hardware the company makes are video cards for gamers and media enthusiast. The company has announced its latest video card called the GTX 460 WHDI Edition that is set to ship in October.
Nokia's N8 started shipping to pre-order customers today, slipping just inside their Q3 2010 promise, and the Finns were kind enough to offer us one of the first from the production line. Fresh out of Helsinki, the new N8's are certainly well made and feel just as premium in the hand as the prototypes always did.
Intel might not have long as supplier of the 3G chipsets for the iPhone and iPad, with reports in China surfacing that claim Apple is planning to switch its baseband allegiance to Qualcomm for the fifth-generation iPhone and second-gen iPad. The move, AppleInsider suggests, does not necessarily confirm the ongoing rumors of a CDMA iPhone - despite the apparent public demand for a Verizon iPhone option - but given Qualcomm's dual-mode wireless chips would at least make that a greater possibility.
One of the Windows Phone 7 handsets we've previously heard connected with AT&T, the HTC Mondrian has leaked - in press shot form, at least. However, according to BestBoyz anonymous source, the handset is headed to an unnamed German carrier.
Nokia's N8 has begun shipping, and you do get the feeling from the company's tersely-titled press release (which you can read after the cut) that they're getting no small amount of satisfaction from proving wrong the naysayers who predicted lengthy delays. To be fair, as we heard previously, you'll have had to be among the first batch of pre-order customers if you want to get your N8 smartish; Nokia says there'll be "broad availability" over the coming weeks.
Perhaps we're just still on a Star Wars high after the Verizon DROID R2-D2 by Motorola dropped on our desk yesterday, but we're eyeing up this Death Star Planetarium and - against our better judgement - wondering if we should pick one up. The compact ball is decorated to look like the Empire's planet destroyer, but actually creates a map of the heavens - either real or according to George Lucas' imagination - on your ceiling.
Rumors of Intel's waning interest in WiMAX look to have been unfounded, with the news that not only has the silicon company just invested $20m into Korea Telecom's WiBro service, but it's convinced the carrier to shift the WiMAX-based system onto the 10MHz channel. That means compatibility with other WiMAX devices, opening up the potential for US WiMAX users to roam their devices onto the high-speed South Korean network.
