Good Morning and Welcome Back

Good Morning and Welcome Back

Welcome back Gearheads! I hope everyone had a fabulous long holiday weekend. Well, it’s back to business as usual and there’s a lot coming up in September. Exactly a week from today, Palm is expected to launch its new Treo 750 codename Lennon. SlashGear will also be in Los Angeles starting Monday, September 10, 2006 to cover the Smartphone Summit followed by CTIA Wireless 2006. I have a briefing scheduled with Palm Tuesday morning at 10am PST, to bring you videos and shots of the company’s latest smart phone – the new Treo!

Other Apple rumors flying around will also get confirmed late this week or early next week. Its highly possible Apple will rollout iTune movies, a 23-inch iMac, updates to the Macbook Pro, and perhaps the new iPhone? Stay tune and rest assure that we’ll report all news and rumors as they become available.

I’m looking forward to the Treo 700wx that’s arriving later today. The unboxing video, comparison and contrast images and initial impressions will get posted ASAP. Still keeping my fingers crossed for an early review unit of the SIRIUS Stiletto! The word is it’s not available until late or early October – boo!

Lastly, we’ll be running short clips from CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas, 2006 for your viewing pleasure.

UPDATE:  The Cardo Scala 700 BT headset, Nokia E61/E70 reviews will get posted this week.  Please accept my apologies for the delays.

Tech Faith UBiQUiO 501 Pocket PC Phone Edition with QWERTY Keyboard

Tech Faith UBiQUiO 501 Pocket PC Phone Edition with QWERTY Keyboard

Here we go again, another Windows Mobile device that may never see the light of day; not to mention a really odd name that I can’t seem to pronounce. Unlike the Nokia E61, Motorola Q and other smartphones, the UBiQUiO 501 sports a 2.5-inch QVGA touch screen, allowing stylus control of menus and programs. This Pocket PC Phone has a lot going for it, such as Bluetooth 1.2 with support for A2DP, WiFi 802.11b/g, GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900MHz, 64MB of internal memory, a microSD slot for memory expansion, and a 2-megapixel camera. The unwired is reports the UBiQUiO 501 lack support for EDGE and GSM 850 MHz, while SlashPhone reports that it does indeed have EDGE. Can anyone close the company please confirm?

It sure looks like Tech Faith’s UBiQUiO 501 is a copycat of the Samsung i320; but according to PDA France, Tech Faith Wireless manufactured both devices. Perhaps that’s the reason for the close resemblance.

Vaio UX90PS (16GB Flash) Reviewed

Vaio UX90PS (16GB Flash) Reviewed

The Vaio UX90PS is identical to the UX50 in every respect with the addition of a TV tuner and the replacement of the 30GB HDD for a 16GB flash RAM HDD. Verdict: the TV tuner and software doesn’t work outside of Japan, but no big loss since there’s only one TV station in Japan anyways. The additional cost for RAM HDD versus a physical HDD is worth it.

HTC teases next “One”, could be low-cost M8

There’s little doubt now that the HTC One line of smartphones will continue after the HTC One (M8). HTC’s micro-blogging personality at Sina Weibo - HTC Life - has released a trip of images that, paired with comments - suggest they’re off to the races again. This next device will be ever-so-slightly more blunt than its predecessor, and won’t be entirely unlike the most recent "Desire."

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?

From Cyborgs to Project Glass: the Augmented Reality Story

From Cyborgs to Project Glass: the Augmented Reality Story

Google's Project Glass has been through the usual story arc - rumors, a mind-blowing concept demo, rabid excitement, practicality doubts and then simmering mistrust - in a concentrated three month period, but the back story to augmented reality is in its fifth decade. The desire to integrate virtual graphics with the real-world in a seamless way can be traced back to the days when computers could do little more than trace a few wireframes on a display; it's been a work-in-progress ever since. If Google's vision left you reeling, the path AR has taken - and where it might go next - could blow your mind.
