SlashGear Week in Review – Week 34 2008

Intel have been holding their annual Developers' Forum in San Francisco this week, and quite a few prototypes and commercial products have come out to play. Of the former, most exciting seems to be the UrbanMax Tablet PC concept; of the latter, Viliv's S5 MID and S7 UMPC both promise to crank the netbook market up a gear or two.

That's probably not what Acer want to hear; the company has snipped pricing off of their Aspire One netbook, presumably remembering (only a little late) that the ultraportables are meant to be cheap. Not far from the shelves, Fujitsu's Amilo Mini and Dell's Inspiron 910 continued to leak information, but still no official word from the tongue-tied companies themselves.

Fujitsu-Siemens have announced a Tablet PC aimed at entry-level users and students.  The Lifebook T1010 has a bi-directional swivelling 13.3-inch 1280 x 800 indoor/outdoor display with a passive (e.g. resistive) touchscreen, and uses either a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo P8400 CPU or a 2.16 Celeron-M together with 1GB or 2GB of RAM (max 8GB supported) and up to 320GB hard-drive.  There is no SSD option.

Fujitsu U2010 CF mod: lower-cost Solid-State speed boost

The Fujitsu U2010 has only been available in Asia since earlier this month, but that hasn't stopped owners modifying the 5.6-inch convertible UMPC.  Although Fujitsu sell versions of the U2010 (which will be known as the U820 in the US) with a 64GB SSD, it's an expensive option above the standard 60GB HDD; UMPC Fever forum member datamate decided to take a different approach, using a 16GB Compact Flash card with a ZIF adaptor.

Fujitsu Siemens have unveiled their new CELSIUS H-series mobile workstations, based on Intel's Centrino 2 platform with an option to upgrade to the Intel Core 2 Extreme or upcoming Mobile quad-core processors.  Both the CELSIUS H265 and H270 have a 15.4-inch display with a choice of 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+) or 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution panels, run off an NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M video card with 32 CUDA Parallel Computing Processor Cores.

Fujitsu-Siemens have taken the wraps off of their own mini desktop PC, the ESPRIMO Q5030.  Unlike the ASUS Eee Box, which has an energy-efficient but relatively low-powered Atom CPU, the Q5030 offers Intel's latest Centrino 2 chipset together with up to 4GB of RAM, a 250GB 5,400rpm hard-drive and slot-loading DVD drive.  What's most impressive, though, is the fact that even running a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo P8400 processor the Q5030 still merely sips electricity.

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.

Fujitsu's U2010, the convertible UMPC based on Intel's Atom CPU, has made it to the FCC with a few testing photos and a new name.  As could have been predicted the UMPC will launch in the US as the U820, where it will have a 5.6-inch, 1,280 x 800 resolution touchscreen and six-row QWERTY keyboard.  Given that the FCC label claims the U820 "contains UMTS" it looks as though the devices 3G WWAN modem has made it over too.

SlashGear Week in Review – August 3rd

Week in Review time, and it seems like there's plenty to look back on over the past seven days.  Continuing our fresh tradition, in the fast-moving netbook segment we've seen confirmation of ASUS' Eee PC plans - 23 models in all, the next of which being the 701SD, together with dual-core and bigger SSD versions - as well as Sylvania's new G Netbook MESO, the target $299 tag of which got plenty of people hot under the collar.  Price is a sore subject over at MSI, who saw their Wind netbook rise in cost uncontrollably, while E-Lead are likely celebrating their Noahpad - with its distinctive dual-touchpad keyboard - finally reaching customers.

There's plenty to look forward to, as well, with Intel confirming a refresh of their Classmate PC, a video showing Fujitsu's upcoming Amilo Mini playing with interchangeable casings, and Lenovo tipped for a new netbook to be released in September.  If you can afford a bit more, and can't wait until September, Lenovo's ThinkPad X200 is a proper, grown-up ultraportable set to launch imminently; going by the first hands-on reports it looks to be a winner, with battery life getting particular credit.

Fujitsu's Amilo Mini netbook has made another appearance, this time on video and demonstrating its neat, clip-on lid covers that will obviously be made in a variety of colors.  The 8.9-inch budget ultraportable is pretty much a mystery machine right now, with the only thing known being that it runs Windows.
