SlashGear Week in Review – Week 9 2009

After cellphones had their way with the headlines the previous week, the past seven days have been an opportunity for netbooks to race back into the spotlight.  Rumors spread about ASUS' upcoming Eee PC "Shell" luxury follow-up to the S101, while we saw a slimline version of the Acer Aspire One.  If you want a machine in the more immediate future, though, the Samsung NC20 was made official, and Dell finally launched their Inspiron Mini 10.

We kicked off the week with a review of HP's MediaSmart EX487 Home Server, but after that brief dalliance with Microsoft it was Apple that caught most of the headlines.  Much of it is rumor, of course, about what will launch at Macworld next week - A new unibody 17-inch MacBook Pro with integrated battery?  A new Mac mini?  An iPod touch HD tablet? - but the Dev Team gave us something more concrete with the release of yellowsn0w.  If you've been waiting to unlock your iPhone 3G, now's your chance.

It's been all about the smartphones this week, with the long-awaited HTC Touch HD finally reaching our hands for one of the first full English-language reviews online.  If our initial video demos last week whetted your appetite, head over to part one and part two of our full review to really gorge yourself.  Meanwhile, to cheer up those in the US who are still smarting over HTC's decision not to offer the Touch HD there, we reviewed AT&T's newly released BlackBerry Bold.

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

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 40 2008

Biggest news this week has been in gaming, with Nintendo announcing the latest iteration of their DS handheld.  The DSi introduces new multimedia features - for instance a 3-megapixel camera - and an even thinner body, at the expense of battery life.  Don't get too excited, though; the US won't see the DSi until "well into" 2009.

In netbooks, ASUS slipped in a few new models at both the low and high-end of the market, with the Eee PC 900HA and 904HA offering bargain 160GB storage while the S101 corners the more-fashionable (and expensive) end.  That's a niche the ASUS N10 already occupies; that netbook ran the review gauntlet this week, proving "technologically clever" but simply too expensive.  ASUS - and MSI, whose Wind U90 was panned too - must be looking enviably at Gigabyte's M912M convertible touchscreen netbook, which was good enough to pull a credit card from the wallet of one reviewer.

Segment Saturation: Where next for Netbooks?

Segment Saturation: Where next for Netbooks?

Read SlashGear - or any tech website - even semi-regularly and you'll see new netbooks appearing pretty much every day.  The niche that started off with the Eee PC 700 as an unusual budget ultraportable has flourished to the point where most major notebook manufacturers have at least one on sale or in the pipeline.  Just as common, however, as the new models is the phrase "another 1.6GHz Intel Atom"; the netbook market may not have reached saturation point, but has our interest in the same old hardware?

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 32 2008

The fight got dirty in the netbook arena this week, as Monday saw VIA's Nano CPU take on Intel's Atom with a 1080p smack-down video only to become mired in controversy when bloggers ran the tests themselves and came up with wildly different outcomes.  Still, we had Lenovo's finally-official IdeaPad S10 and S9 to cheer us up, together with the rumor that Gigabyte plan a 10-inch dual-core version of the coveted M912 tablet-netbook. 

Of course, ASUS couldn't bear to be out of the headlines for a single minute, and so announced the S101 (the size of an Eee, the branding of an Eee, but it's not an Eee) together with a cloud storage option.  Netbooks are so much the niche of the moment that this week's "He Said, She Said" editorial was all about whether the best value comes from there or from a second-hand laptop off of eBay.
