SlashGear Week in Review – Week 21 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 21 2009

The SlashGear team have been surprisingly mobile this week, with part one of our Lincoln MKS road-test, and toting Sprint's version of the MiFi 2200 portable EVDO hotspot around.  We still found enough time to get frantically excited about the Palm Pre, though, which we now know will launch on June 6th for $199.99. 

That excitement is tempered with the ongoing rumors that stocks may be severely curtailed on launch day.  Not only have Best Buy and RadioShack insiders been talking of minimal handset numbers come June 6th, Sprint's own CEO is warning that the Pre will likely be in short supply for the first couple of months.  The concern is that all of Palm's momentum since CES back in January could fizzle out, as Apple are expected to announce a third-generation iPhone two days after the Pre's launch.

Archos launching Android 3G PMP on June 11th?

Archos launching Android 3G PMP on June 11th?

Archos have announced a press event to be held on June 11th in Paris, France.  While there's no actual written confirmation of what the event might be about, the shadowy PMP/MID device visible on the invite and the bright green color-scheme has led to speculation that it concerns Archos' Android-based Internet Media Tablet (IMT) phone.

The company announced that they would be developing an Android device back in February, with the IMT measuring just 10mm thick and having a 5-inch high resolution touchscreen.  Connectivity will include not only WiFi, like existing PMPs from Archos, but 3.5G HSUPA/HSDPA for up to 7.2Mbps downloads.

Compal APA00 and APA01 touchscreen HD-capable PMPs

Compal have quietly unveiled two new internet-connected touchscreen PMPs, the APA00 (black) and APA01 (white).  Each has DVB-T digital TV, the ability to record to a 1.8-inch internal hard-drive, native HD support up to 1080i, and WiFi b/g.  Control is via the 7-inch, 800 x 480 touchscreen, with both PMPs running the uCLinux operating system with a custom finger-friendly GUI.

Archos 7 Internet Media Tablet reviewed: capacious, capable & costly

Archos 7 Internet Media Tablet reviewed: capacious, capable & costly

If size is everything in PMPs, the Archos 7 Internet Media Tablet certainly has a lot going for it.  With a 7-inch touchscreen, there are certainly a whole lot fewer rivals than its smaller Archos 5 sibling faces; still, that hasn't stopped Archos from packing it with WiFi, a choice of 160GB or 320GB hard-drives, and internet browsing.  JAMM have been testing it out (including holding the photoshoot with the iPod touch shown here) and the general judgement is good.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

We kicked off the week with some high-profile reviews here at SlashGear, putting the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops through their paces.  If you're considering one of these slick new machines - or are wondering what style features other manufacturers will be copying over the next six months - make sure to check them out!  We also played with a more budget computing option in the shape of the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA.

Meanwhile cellphones have been on the test bench, with Sprint's pair of new Samsungs - the messaging Rant and the musical HighNote - squaring up against Velocity Mobile's 103 smartphone.  We had to leave our desks to try out Blackline's GPS Snitch, however, but were back in before curfew to play with some toys: WowWee's Bladestar remote control helicopter, for one, and a rather more unusual review of the WowWee Femisapien

Aigo P8860 MID vs. Archos 5 PMP: Internet device battle

Aigo P8860 MID vs. Archos 5 PMP: Internet device battle

A few months back, when we wondered out loud about abbreviations, one of the easiest targets was the ultraportable device market.  Mobile Internet Devices, Ultramobile PCs, Personal Media Players; as manufacturers rush to grant their gadgets more functionality, all seem to end up overlapping.  The Archos Internet Media Tablet isn't a MID, not by Archos' own definition anyway, but it does offer internet access, on a touchscreen tablet, in a device that's certainly mobile.  Pocketables have been comparing the Archos 5 (soon to be available with integrated 3G WWAN, remember) with the Aigo P8860, a gadget which certainly does claim to be a MID.

Archos 5g HSDPA PMP French pricing leaks

Archos 5g HSDPA PMP French pricing leaks

Archos' latest range of Internet Media Tablets, the 5 and 7, are on sale in many markets worldwide, but if you want the 5g version with integrated HSDPA you'll have to head to France.  SFR is so-far the only carrier to have publicly signed up to the WWAN PMP; their official launch is expected later this week, but they've been scooped by November's issue of Stuff magazine.

Update: Stuff got the pricing wrong; see here for official details.

Archos 5 Mini Dock reviewed: Cheap, flexible connectivity

Archos 5 Mini Dock reviewed: Cheap, flexible connectivity

It might seem overkill to have a whole separate review about a dock, but when said-dock adds stacks of functionality for a bargain price it's bound to be a popular accessory.  Jenn at Pocketables has been sitting her Archos 5 Internet Media Tablet in the $30 Archos Mini Dock, and if we're talking cost-to-flexibility ratio the Mini Dock sounds like it's off the scale.  In fact, only some ergonomic issues potentially hold the Archos Mini Dock back.
