CDMA iPhone orders placed with Pegatron?

The possibility of a Verizon iPhone gains, if not a shot in the arm, then at least another layer of rumor and speculation this morning, with DigiTimes reporting that Pegatron have clinched the contract to manufacture a CDMA version of the Apple smartphone.   According to their component maker sources, the company is eventually expected to produce 10m CDMA iPhones a year.

ASUS “killer product” in June says CEO: Tegra 2 tablet to launch?

ASUS delivered quite a few interesting devices at CES 2010, but according to chairman Jonney Shih we'll need to wait until June for their "killer product".  The teasing exec mentioned the upcoming device while confirming that ASUS have decided to spin out the manufacturing firm Pegatron as a separate firm; unfortunately he gave no further indication of exactly what that device might be.

Pegatron Atom slate gets video hands-on

While HP's unnamed slate PC got most of the attention during and after Microsoft's CES 2010 keynote yesterday, it wasn't the only touchscreen device Steve Ballmer had on stage with him.  Neowin have been digging to discover more about the Pegatron model also shown, and have come up not only with some specs but a video demo of the slate in action.

Pegatron Smartbook caught in wild (again)

We were only talking earlier on today about Pegatron's Smartbook plans, and then along comes Shanzai with a quick hands-on report with one of the company's first models.  There's no telling whether this is merely a prototype or something we'll see in Q1 2010 with a brand-name plastered across it, but we do know it was featured at ARM's "Technical Symposium 2009" in Taipei this week.

Multiple Smartbooks arriving in Q1 2010 claim Pegatron

Having had a reasonably prolonged fondle with Quanta's Android Smartbook prototype yesterday, we're actually quite excited by the platform's prospects.  According to one of Pegatron's general business managers, we shouldn't have too long to wait, either; Jeremy Shu is claiming that the company has received orders from a number of clients for large volumes of Smartbooks, and he expects them to launch in Q1 2010 alongside carrier partnerships for the integrated 3G connectivity.

Pegatron Smartbook out-slims skinny Eee PC

Pegatron's Smartbook prototype has made another appearance, this time squaring up to one of ASUS' Eee PC models in order to flaunt its slender chassis.  The Smartbook - here in touching, emotionally-available, secure-in-its-own-masculinity pink - is considerably thinner than a netbook (the 1005HA) that until now has helped lead the pack in terms of slimline scale, and it's not an unfair battery comparison either.  The Pegatron may only have a 2-cell, 4,400mAh battery, but thanks to the low-voltage components inside it's rated for around eight hours runtime.

Lenovo out IdeaCentre D400 Home Server and Q100/Q110 nettops via Twitter

In a welcome change from reams of press release to wade through, Lenovo have tipped their upcoming home server and nettops via Twitter: 140 characters of spec-free mystery.  The IdeaCentre D400 home server and IdeaCentre Q100/Q110 nettops are yet to make an appearance on the Lenovo US site, but according to the company will get an announcement sometime this week.  However that hasn't stopped details from popping up across the web.

Pegatron Freescale netbook prototype shows up with Pre in tow

Pegatron Freescale netbook prototype shows up with Pre in tow

Pegatron have been showing off their Freescale-powered netbook prototype again, and if you're wondering why there's a Palm Pre perched on the end then it's because the two share the same basic ARM Cortex A8 core architecture.  In the unnamed netbook's case, though, the Freescale iMX515 runs at 1GHz, and is capable of playing 720p video and running 3D games.

EMTEC G-Box nettop: Ion, they say, but no HDMI

EMTEC G-Box nettop: Ion, they say, but no HDMI

Eagle-eyed nettop watchers will note that we've already seen EMTEC's G-Box quite a few times here on SlashGear, albeit wearing different branding.  Based on Pegatron's reference design, EMTEC say the the G-Box uses NVIDIA's Ion graphics chipset, which would suggest it's a version of the Cape 7, but the VGA rather than HDMI port is more like the lower-powered Ultra Slim.

Foxconn cite “customer confidentiality” over PS3 Slim OEM rumors

Is a "no comment" statement even more of a confirmation than a staunch denial ever could be?  That certainly seems to be the case with Foxconn, who have declined to comment on rumors that they've been picked as an OEM supplier of the much-rumored slimline PS3 by citing "customer confidentiality".

Pegatron Vivid netbook: Tegra, 1080p and shortcut keys

It doesn't take much to differentiate your netbook, what with most sharing the same hardware, so Pegatron have managed to surprise and delight by slapping Yahoo!, Google, MSN and Skype keys on their Vivid prototype.  To be honest, though, they didn't need to bother: all they needed to highlight was the fact that this is one of the rare machines with NVIDIA's Tegra chipset.
