SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: January 18 2011

Hoax! Samsung Vibrant 4G Android phone for T-Mobile with Android 2.3 turns out to be Totally Faked! Then no fake! We're having a heated debate on the effects of Consumer Reports hating on Verizon's iPhone 4 - Good News for Android? See then another object ripe for debate: Intel IPAD - pre-dating the iPad by nine years! Then a product that's making people get sick in a different way: Reports of 3DS users feeling ill surface after 3DS showcase in Japan. On the other side of the spectrum, Microsoft speaks with ChevronWP7 team, making them feel mighty healthy for their hacking of Windows Phone 7! Finally, take a peek at a couple reviews you may have missed last night - one for MacBook Air 11-inch and iPod Touch GelaSkins, the other for a lovely orange Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Notebook!

Raumfeld Multi-Room Audio System Review

Raumfeld Multi-Room Audio System Review

Just as CDs have quickly been overtaken by digital downloads, so the number of people wanting to get their music off the computer and through speakers in their living room, kitchen and bedroom has increased. Wading into that market is Raumfeld, promising "Hi-Fi for the digital age" with their eponymous modular system. Still, you can't get far in multi-room audio without tripping over Sonos, so the question is whether the little-known German start-up can compete. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

XPERIA X10 Review

XPERIA X10 Review

If it feels like it's a long time since we first saw the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, that's because it really has been. First announced back in November 2009, and only now approaching the market, the X10 runs the risk - like other Sony Ericsson smartphones, it has to be said - of making promises that prove underwhelming by the time it delivers on them. With handsets like the Nexus One already on the market, is there still a place for the XPERIA X10? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Pocketbook 360° reviewed: fastest ereader around

Pocketbook 360° reviewed: fastest ereader around

Given the number of wireless-enabled, high-aspiring ereaders we've seen promised for launch and then failing to turn up on schedule - Plastic Logic and Spring Design, we're looking at you - there are times when you wonder if you're better off with a regular ebook device that does the basics well.  One such example might be the Pocketbook 360°, a non-wireless reader around the size of a CD case and half the weight of a Kindle or nook; it may not let you download ebooks while on the move, but it does apparently boast super-fast speed and usability.

Parrot AR.Drone WiFi helicopter gets augmented reality iPhone control

Parrot AR.Drone WiFi helicopter gets augmented reality iPhone control

We primarily know Parrot as a purveyor of all things Bluetooth, but now the French company is segueing into remote controlled devices.  The Parrot AR.Drone is a quadricopter - i.e. a four-propellor helicopter - that's packed with WiFi for remote-control from an iPhone or iPod touch, two video cameras (one for auto-pilot, another for streaming birds-eye footage back to the pilot) and various sensors and gyroscopes.  Parrot are also releasing an SDK so that developers can create games and other software such as augmented reality (AR).

Hearst’s Skiff digital media service announced; 3G e-reader coming in 2010

Hearst’s Skiff digital media service announced; 3G e-reader coming in 2010

We can't say we think much of the name, but Hearst Corporation's new Skiff electronic content distribution service will likely be seen as a lifeboat for beleaguered publishers.  Combining an "enhanced content experience" delivery service and digital store, Skiff will make its newspaper, magazine, book and other content available on various existing devices, including smartphones like the iPhone, Hearst are also planning their own ebook reader for release in 2010, based on a Marvell chipset and using Sprint's 3G EVDO Rev.A network for wireless connectivity.

2011 Audi A8 packed with tech: handwriting recognition, 1,400W B&O audio, more

2011 Audi A8 packed with tech: handwriting recognition, 1,400W B&O audio, more

With what must be a strong candidate for the longest press release of 2009, Audi have launched their new flagship, the Audi A8.  Since we usually save our interest in cars for only the most outlandishly technical or geekily endearing, the new A8 earns its place by bolstering its multimedia interface (MMI) with handwriting recognition, an optional 1,400W Bang & Olufsen audio system, twin 10.2-inch displays for the rear-seat passengers, and a 20GB hard-drive for digital media.

Nokia N97 mini review

Nokia N97 mini review

We've had two QWERTY Nokia smartphones on the SlashGear test-bench this past week, and the surprising thing is how differently the respective user experience is. Our Nokia E72 review went live earlier today; now we turn to the Nokia N97 mini, viewed by many - for better or for worse - as the Finnish company's second attempt at the N97. Second-time lucky or still well short? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
