SlashGear Week in Review – Week 36 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. Monday we found out that the Samsung Galaxy Tab would cost in the area of $200 to $400 depending on subsidies from wireless carriers. We can assume that the Galaxy Tab will cost on the higher end of that range. Later in the day on Monday the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Germany surfaced via Amazon. The price of the Tab sans contract was listed at €799 or about $1,030 here in the States.

The Daily Slash: April 7th 2010

The Daily Slash: April 7th 2010

It's Wednesday. And interestingly enough, we're probably not the only ones considering today "the day before." The day before what? Well, it's the day before we get to fire up our legendary, homegrown liveblogging system again. We'll be at the iPhone OS 4.0 event, and hopefully you'll join us as we detail what's going down with the latest software update from Cupertino. Until then, we've got tonight's Daily Slash. As we go forth, we'll look into the best of the best in the R3 Media's network. And in the dredge net, we've got the most notorious eReader rumored to make a retail appearance soon, and we have Nintendo telling the world that the iPad isn't for gaming. Then we've got lightsabers that will save your from the dark. And finally, a cellphone that goes way out of its way to be ridiculous.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 2 2010

The week of CES each year is a week that geeks in the industry and geek consumers look forward too with glee. At the same time those of us who have been to the show have to temper the gadget lust we get going into the show with the knowledge that his is one of the most grueling weeks of the year to be a pro geek. Just look at the number of new items announced this week; it was hard to even whittle the list down to some of the coolest gear of the week for our second week in review of 2010.

Palm Pixie (aka Eos) confirmed in Pre webOS ROM leak

Palm Pixie (aka Eos) confirmed in Pre webOS ROM leak

Palm's "webOS Reset Doctor", the tool intended to be used to reflash broken or bricked Palm Pre handsets, has leaked, and with it the full webOS ROM.  Intended only for internal use, the ROM has already been cracked over in the PreCentral forums, and it's throwing up not only some interesting tidbits about Palm's intentions for the Pre but about the rumored Eos second device said to be launching later this year.

Mention has been found in the code of both "castle", assumed to be the Pre's internal codename, and "pixie", which has previously been tipped as the codename for the Eos.  Palm have never hidden the fact that the Pre is to be the first device of many to use webOS, but the presence of "pixie" in this first-gen code does seem to suggest that the handset is set to arrive sooner rather than later.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2008

Laptops big and small have monopolized the headlines this week, with the most anticipation being Apple's upcoming MacBook event on Tuesday October 14th.  SlashGear will be live-blogging the whole thing, so join us at http://Live.SlashGear.com at 10am PST.  Meanwhile the 'Brick' rumors of what Steve Jobs might be announcing keep on coming: we've seen water-jet cutting systems, $800 price-points and several purported photo leaks.  Of course, Apple are saying nothing until Tuesday; they're too busy blaming NVIDIA for a spate of MacBook graphics failures.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

Netbooks made their typical strong showing this week, with ASUS announcing their intention to put 3G HSUPA into the Eee PC 901.  Meanwhile their N10 was reviewed and deemed the first netbook "suitable for serious gaming", a promising title indeed.  Lenovo's S10 also hit reviewers' benches, making a strong - if at times warm - case for the smallest IdeaPad, while Packard Bell unveiled their 'dot', targeted much more at the budget end of the scale.  They'll have a fight on their hands, though; SlashGear reviewed the Acer Aspire One this week too, and when it comes to value for money it's a tough one to beat.

Arguably the biggest news of the week, however, has been T-Mobile's G1 - the first Android-based handset to be officially announced.  Our sister-site AndroidCommunity.com ran a Live Blog of the whole event (and gave away a G1 to one lucky forum member), and we've got the photo galleries and hands-on video to show for it.

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

It's become somewhat traditional to start the week's review with what's happening in the netbook world, a niche that's arguably the fastest developing right now in consumer tech.  Fujitsu kicked things off with the proclamation that budget ultraportables "don't add up" and that the current race to the bottom line doesn't give manufacturers enough room to make profit; Fujitsu were rumored the week before to be planning a netbook of their own, only with the emphasis on build quality rather than solely the price tag.  Sony also picked up a few netbook-in-progress rumors, tipped for Q4 2008, and HP revealed that they're working on a follow-up to the 2133 Mini-Note that will be less sturdy but also less expensive.

LG, too, are said to have a netbook in the works, with a model tentatively named X110 running Intel's Atom CPU and made for them by MSI.  It's uncertain whether, if this turns out to be true, the X110 would be a rebadge of the MSI Wind or a whole new design.  Finally, ASUS confirmed they wouldn't be letting up the pressure as firm most associated with the segment; there's talk of an "all day" battery and cloud storage option for release later on in 2008.
