Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 hands-on

Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 hands-on

All eyes were on Samsung's larger Galaxy Tab 10.1 at MWC 2011, but if you judge a Dell Streak 5 a tablet by virtue of its 5-inch display, then the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 has to be considered one as well. The 5-inch PMP looks like an oversized Galaxy S - unsurprising, since Samsung considers it a varient with 3G missing - with a WVGA display, 720p HD playback and a pair of cameras for video chat and photography.

iPod nano hack removes apps; Jailbreak work-in-progress [Video]

Apple's latest iPod nano hasn't inspired quite the frenzied hack atmosphere as its iPod touch and iPhone siblings, but that doesn't mean the tiny touchscreen PMP is completely devoid of modification. James Whelton won a nano and spent little time in cooking up an app hack; while so far he can't add software to the PMP, he's figured out how to modify the Springboard UI to remove apps.

Samsung Galaxy Player YP-GB1 Android PMP headed to CES 2011

Cowon X7 DAP/PMP gets official in Korea

Cowon has gone official in Korea with its latest PMP that looks more like a smartphone than a traditional PMP I am used to seeing called the X7.

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

Ode to the Nano, V to the izzA

I was once stranded in Amsterdam for more than a week with my iPod nano and only 4 albums of music. I started the week at a Microsoft Mobius event, from which I got to visit Amsterdam coffeeshops with some fairly interesting and important people from Microsoft, Qualcomm and some of my other favorite tech blogs.
