We’ve heard so many rumors about 3G iPhone in the past several weeks and spy shots of the device are still popping up here and there but still unverified whether those images are genuine. However, the dwindling down of the iPhone’s availability in UK and US making it very hard not to jump to conclusion that the 3G iPhone is coming out. Apple stores and AT&T stores reported making the iPhone unavailable for orders.
In a move to further the transition from standard home phones to that of phones with similar features as our cell phones VTech has created a new cordless home phone that is capable of signing onto and messaging people using the following services: MSN Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, and AOL Instant Messenger. All you have to do with this phone to get these amazing extra features is connect the base station to your computer. I mean, it has a full QWERTY keypad and can also work with VoIP services, how much more amazing can a home phone get without adding a cellular chipset to it?
Android phones are starting to slowly come out of the woodwork with no official production ready models being announced yet. However there is an event in London involving HTC on May 6th, a company that vowed to release the first Android phone. They are also known for making some of the best Windows Mobile handsets that are on the market. So the question is, how does Microsoft feel about this, and more specifically, how will manufacturers like HTC keep the peace within their own companies?
It just wouldn’t make sense for mobile phone manufacturers like HTC to make the exact same phone twice just offering your choice of Android or Windows Mobile, it would kind of be nice, but exclusive handsets tipped to one OS or the other are what really moves units. For example, would the XPERIA X1 be such a big deal if it wasn’t running the next generation of Windows Mobile software? Maybe, but I’d guess not.
Sure, this little UMPC can fit in the palm of your hand and is only marginally larger than a lot of the larger smartphones being released these days, but this is no smartphone, this is a full on computer. It has an Intel Atom processor inside, a 40GB HDD, a 5” touchscreen, and so much more.
I don’t know, there might be a pair that is slathered in diamonds and platinum or something like that which beat these out, but I doubt it. At $600 these wireless headphones do not come cheap, but if you are an audiophile in search of some wireless headphones they are apparently worth it.
So you know how you have to compress your audio in order to fit it on your MP3 player, mainly because those lossless formats aren’t really supported, but also because the files are freaking huge. Well supposedly this little thing goes between cleans up the audio, somehow filling in the blank spaces.
Anyways, the end result is supposedly better audio quality is going to your headphones, speakers, or whatever else you connect to this thing. The supposed technology allows for real-time compression, removal of harmful digital artifacts and audio spikes.
HTC will be holding a special event to unveil something new – the invitation we received for May 6th in London comes with the tag line “Witness the next wave of HTC Innovation”. We honestly have no solid leads on what HTC is going to unveil, however we have the hunch that an Android based phone (HTC Dream) will be announce on the event.
This digital camcorder from Klegg is like the Swiss Army knife of digital camcorders. However much like the knife, it can do a lot of things, but isn’t particularly well versed at any one of them. This particular digital camcorder can record video, capture still images, play video games, read ebooks, play music, take voice notes, and can’t manage to do any of them spectacularly.
Well, a lot has happened this past week and this is just a little recap for those of you that aren’t big fans of back reading through pages of articles. I highly recommend you at least skim through and make sure there isn’t something really interesting that you missed, but here’s a brief overview.
Is it just me or is it a growing trend these days for more and more of the excitable and highly marketable to be using low end, often times single-core, processors of the past? Why did Intel and AMD even bother developing dual and quad core chips when we were going to wind up going back to single core chips, and even VIA processors?
