More Dell Windows tablet rumors have emerged, this time with DigiTimes describing the company as - along with RIM and the PlayBook - "the most active brand" in the segment.

LTE HTC Thunderbolt supposedly detailed: 1.2GHz dual-core & twin 8MP/5MP cameras? [Updated]

The LTE-packing HTC Thunderbolt smartphone will supposedly be seeing a European release as well as availability on Verizon in the US, if a leak supposedly from a German retailer's systems is authentic. According to HTCInside, the Thunderbolt has a 1.2GHz dual-core MSM8960 processor and both 8-megapixel (rear) and 5-megapixel (front) cameras, and is headed to German carriers O2, Deutsche Telekom and Vodafone in 2011.

Update: Something to be cautious about: the MSM8960 supposedly found inside the Thunderbolt isn't expected to arrive until 2012. Either the chip has been mis-labeled, or it's a sign that this isn't entirely legit.

HTC HD2 gets MeeGo 1.1 install

Notion Ink Demos Adam Leaves System and Desktop

Notion Ink Demos Adam Leaves System and Desktop

Tonight comes the newest installment in the EDEN system of demos, this one VII and the first one to be done direct from the screen via the HDMI out to a computer at Notion Ink. This means a much better looking quality video, but still without sound. Improving ever so steadily! This video features a look at the Leaves system of working with the tablet and a tiny glance at the desktop. Leaves take each of your apps (apps that are ready to work with Leaves, of course) and turns them into sort of big widgets. They say that since things like feeds, Tweeting, Facebooking, and changing a song aren't full-fledged apps in themselves, they shouldn't need a full app open! Enter Leaves - or panels, if that's what you'd like to call them. Check it out!

However, the Ministry did not clarify as to which ones, exactly, they would be targeting.

Zap Cane Hides a Flashlight & One Million Volt Charge

Canes have been a good way to conceal weapons for a long time. Usually, though, it's a blade of some kind in there. Or, maybe the cane itself is your weapon of choice. Either way, it's a trick that's been tested, and proven effective. The Zap Cane, though, may take things a bit too far. And not because it has a flashlight built-in, either.
