Notion Ink Adam hands-on & digital magazine demo

Notion Ink Adam hands-on & digital magazine demo

While we were with NVIDIA today, we ran into one of the guys from tablet start-up Notion Ink. We've covered their Adam tablet several times here at SlashGear, and so jumped at the chance for a hands-on with their latest prototype unit. The company have confirmed that there will be two models on offer when the Adam hits the market in Q3 2010, one with the innovative Pixel Qi display (at 12.9mm thick) and another (11.6mm thick) regular LCD.  They've also sent over a video demo of a Flash-based digital magazine, which you can see after the cut.

CEVA DSP Core powers next-gen Samsung LTE modem

CEVA DSP Core powers next-gen Samsung LTE modem

I for one am looking forward to LTE hitting the US later this year in limited areas. It will be 2011 before we see wide rollouts of the service according to most carriers. Other than the service being available, we also need new devices that can take advantage of the speed like phones and modems. CEVA has announced at MWC 2010 that Samsung has chosen the CEVA DSP Core to power its first LTE modem.

Sonim torture tests “nearly” unbreakable XP2 Spirit phone at MWC

Sonim torture tests “nearly” unbreakable XP2 Spirit phone at MWC

Nothing is more embarrassing for a manufacturer than to have its product tested and the features touted found to be false. This is exactly what happened to Sonim at CES when it dared a BBC journalist to try to break its indestructible XP3 handset, and break it he did. With that fresh in mind, Sonim is showing off its first 3G handset at MWC called the Sonim XP2 Spirit and is this time calling the thing "nearly" unbreakable.

Garmin-Asus nuvifone A50 hands-on

Garmin-Asus nuvifone A50 hands-on

The first nuvifone took its time reaching the market and met with disappointing reviews when it finally made it, so you could argue the bar is set low for the Garmin-Asus nuvifone A50.  The first in the model range to run Android, we grabbed some hands-on time with the A50 at MWC 2010 this week; turns out, the partnership have learnt plenty from their first efforts, and while the smartphone won't knock HTC off their perch it joins the ringing death-knell of standalone PNDs.  More first-impressions after the cut.

Toshiba TG02 and K01 hands-on

Toshiba TG02 and K01 hands-on

Toshiba's two new Windows Mobile 6.5 devices ended up a little overshadowed by Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 launch, which is a shame since we're hoping the company has learnt its lesson from the mediocre TG01.  One of our biggest complaints was the poor custom UI; that's been replaced with a slick new 3D interface, which looks pretty impressive on the 4.1-inch WVGA display.  It also does duty on the Toshiba K01, which basically takes the TG02 and adds a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 hands-on

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 hands-on

MWC 2010 isn't our first encounter with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10; after all, we joined the company in London back in November 2009 for the official launch of the Android smartphone.  What it is, though, is a good chance to catch up with a very much more optimized build.  The XPERIA X10's debut was marred by jittery performance and sluggishness in the company's custom apps, Mediascape and Timescape, leaving us somewhat unconvinced about the handset.  Happily - and handily, since Sony Ericsson tell us the X10 is mere weeks from launch in the UK - the current build is far more impressive.
