Orbo Watch Takes Circular Face, E Ink, Tells All

Orbo Watch Takes Circular Face, E Ink, Tells All

We've got a soft spot for conceptual design in our collective hearts here at SlashGear, and when a bit of industrial design comes along so very close to production that they only need a little nudge to get out of the door, we can't resist. Especially when that design is brilliant to the level that this watch is. It appears to be analog until you realize what the hands are telling you - the hours, minutes, seconds, day, weather, and basically anything else you'd like, all of it in a cleverly fashionable design.

Hanvon color E Ink ereader due March 2011 with WiFi/3G

Hanvon color E Ink ereader due March 2011 with WiFi/3G

Hanvon look likely to be the first company to launch a color ereader based on an e-paper display rather than an LCD. According to the New York Times, the Chinese company will unveil its so-far unnamed ereader device at the FPD International 2010 tradeshow in Tokyo, complete with a 9.68-inch color e-paper screen from industry heavyweight E Ink.

E Ink had previously promised that their color e-paper screens should be available by the end of 2010, though the Hanvon model will miss that launch window. Instead it's expected to arrive in China in March 2011 - we're guessing it'll be brought to CES 2011 in January with great fanfare as well - with a reasonably hefty price-tag of $440, though that will also include WiFi and 3G connectivity for downloading content while mobile.

Best Buy Connect Service Inks Deal with Clearwire to Offer 4G

Just over a month ago, we told you that Clearwire had their sights set on installing WiMAX modems into a bunch of Intel Core-based notebooks, which would then subsequently be sold through Best Buy some time by the holiday shopping season. Even as the report hit the 'net, there were still plenty of questions. Primarily, was this a one time thing, or would a new deal come from the situation?
