Giada i53 aims at HTPCs with Ivy Bridge and USB 3.0

A manufacturer has finally decided to build a mini PC featuring silicon other than Intel’s Atom or AMD’s various APUs. In this case it's Giada, today announcing its new i53 “book sized” mini PC. The company has managed to cram in Intel’s Ivy Bridge processors into a 26mm thick chassis, saying that the whole package only consumes 35W. The other specs aren’t bad either.

Motorola Lapdock gets new life with wave of mini-PCs

Another bit of evidence that the internet has brought us closer to a hive-mind mentality than ever before: several bright young owners of the Motorola Lapdock have purchased ultra-cheap miniature PCs such as the Raspberry Pi and have hooked it up for new greatness. Over at Liliputing, the Raspberry Pi ultra-inexpensive computer is just one of several that have been hooked up into the Motorola Lapdock - an older version of the one we reviewed several months ago. There's also the MK802 PC on a stick as well, and more too!

Infinitec Pocket TV Android dongle gets pre-release bump

Inside the Infinitec Pocket TV HDMI device is Android 4.0 and the ability to rock and roll on your HDTV - what you'll find in addition to that now that it's had a pre-release update is a massive 1GB of RAM. This device has also settled on a final design as it heads to the actual web-based market after its humble beginnings on Kickstarter. You'll find a mini USB port on the side of the device and it has a promise to be able to handle "the next versions of Android" including what we assume will be an upgrade by the end of the year - supposing Google I/O brings on another boost.

Galaxy S III MHL-HDMI adapter headache gets cheaper workaround

Galaxy S III MHL-HDMI adapter headache gets cheaper workaround

Confirmation last week that Samsung's Galaxy S III demands a new MHL-HDMI adapter cast a shadow over the flagship smartphone, but now a more affordable solution has been spotted. While the Galaxy S III uses a newer pin layout than existing MHL adapters - meaning old dongles won't work with the new phone - MobileFun has discovered a converter adapter-tip that fixes it for a third of the price.

Samsung Galaxy S III demands special MHL-HDMI adapter

Samsung Galaxy S III demands special MHL-HDMI adapter

Samsung has apparently changed the MHL-HDMI connectivity on the Galaxy S III so that existing adapters for the video-output will not work. The issue, first spotted by retailer Clove, means those new Galaxy S III owners who already have an MHL adapter - such as for use with the last-gen Galaxy S II, or the Galaxy Nexus - will seemingly need to buy a new dongle if they want to continue seeing their phone's display on the big screen.

Samsung outs MHL capable 23/27″ LED monitors

Samsung outs MHL capable 23/27″ LED monitors

MHL has been creeping into more and more devices over the past year or so, first making waves with Samsung’s Galaxy S II. MHL allows an HDMI signal to be sent out over microUSB, assuming you have a powered adapter. Now Samsung is integrating the tech into two new monitors, which will let you plug the phone straight in and display a signal without the need for a separate power source.

Xtex $150 Android is no tab killer

Xtex $150 Android is no tab killer

There's a lot to be said about Android tablets popping up around the world for prices so low you'd be crazy to not consider them when looking for a tablet. The Xtex My Tablet 7 revealed this week is $150 and appears to be a winner with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the ability to output video at 1080p via mini HDMI, but here's the killer: single specs do not a great tablet make. As a person who's had his hands on more than a normal citizen's fair share of tablets in the past couple of years, I can tell you this: it will be a miracle if the Xtex doesn't pop up in the news in a couple of weeks with a myriad of complains on how it doesn't perform nearly as well as its new owners much smaller and much better made smartphones.
