SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up: May 15, 2012

Start your morning off right with no less than a couple of massive notebook range upgrades from Lenovo which include no less than the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook with its ultra-thin profile and ultra-powerful innards. Check out the open source nature of Kylo web browser, newly open sourced over night. Facebook, a group you may have heard of, has been tipped for some bits this morning as well, starting with an IPO price boost.

There's some new flexible e-paper on the horizon coming from Plastic Logic. There's a brand new Nokia device out there by the name of Nokia 1 which will bring "the next billion" for a web ride on the cheap. Check out our hands-on with AMD Trinity for sweet pre-production power!

AMD has also let us know that we'll be seeing console-quality flash gaming in 12 months. Acer has come clean with some new Aspire M5 Ultrabooks complete with discrete NVIDIA graphics. Google has also let it be known that their Project Glass promo wasn't quite up to spec with what they've got on the books so far.

The Samsung Galaxy S III user manual has been released for your perusal. Facebook's IPO news this morning comes with an additional 50 million shares in much closer to noon. Sony has joined the Ivy Bridge generation with Vaio E Series 15 and Series 17 notebooks. The newest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device on the block is the HTC Desire C in a cool new red colorway.

And no morning would be complete without a little scuffle - Nokia is not pleased with Apple after they've patched SIRI to make sure she tells users that the iPhone is the best smartphone ever, not the Lumia 900.
