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.

AAXA P1 LCoS-based pico projector review

AAXA P1 LCoS-based pico projector review

Having used four generations of home entertainment projector over the last decade, I was skeptical of small-form factor pico projectors when they first surfaced. A pocket-size projector with dimensions similar to a remote control or a cellphone, running super-cool and battery-operated for up to an hour of continuous use. That’s all tempting stuff, but can they deliver? Last month, we reviewed the UK-based BeamBox Evolution R1 Pico-projector; today, we have a close cousin with the same LCoS microdisplay but in different outfit: the AAXA P1 pico projector.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 12 2009

Headlines this week were a tussle between Apple's iPhone OS 3.0 announcement and the launch of the Dell Adamo luxury ultraportable.  We were pleased to see SlashGear readers in their thousands join us for our Apple liveblog and, while there may have been no new hardware, the features hitting the iPhone over the Summer - MMS, A2DP Bluetooth, copy & paste, and Spotlight, to name but a few - could keep the smartphone well ahead of the competition.  That's not what Palm wanted to hear; we ran through the key differences between the iPhone OS 3.0 and Palm Pre at our sibling-site My Pre.

Dell M109S DLP Micro Projector reviewed: Mobile Pro’s Dream

Dell M109S DLP Micro Projector reviewed: Mobile Pro’s Dream

With power consumption at 34W, Dell's M109S DLP Micro Projector is never going to end up squashed inside a cellphone, but for the mobile presenter the 0.8lb device could be a godsend.  Capable of throwing a 858 x 600 SVGA image from either composite or VGA, Popular Mechanics have been putting a prototype of the M109S through its paces, and despite some color concerns come away impressed.

Beyond Glass: Inside Epson’s scheme to make the de-facto smart glasses

Beyond Glass: Inside Epson’s scheme to make the de-facto smart glasses

Epson can forgive you if your first thought when you hear augmented reality is Google Glass, even though you're wrong. Google may never had actually described its wearable as an AR device, but a combination of the over-promising original concept video and a general naivety about the segment overall led many would-be Glass wearers to be surprised at what the headset really is: a convenient notifications pane in the corner of your vision. If you're looking for true AR, though, Epson might have the answer. We caught up with the company to check out its latest headset, the Moverio BT-200, and find out why it's confident it can become the de-facto choice for augmented reality.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 4, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 4, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. Today we found out that nightly builds to CyanogenMod 10.1 are ready to go for the Nexus 10, which comes just a short time after nightlies started rolling out for the Nexus 4. IDC said today that Android will likely stay on top in the battle for mobile dominance until 2016, with iOS placing in second throughout, so it looks like the mobile landscape won't be changing all that much in the coming years. Verizon is set to begin rolling out targeted ad campaigns this week, but you'll only see those ads if you give Verizon permission.
