SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2008

Review of the week was ASUS' Eee Top ET1602 touchscreen nettop, which proved itself quite capable of taking on any doubts over an Atom-based PC and throwing them out.  It's certainly left us excited about next-year's models, which are meant to have bigger displays and improved media capabilities.  Meanwhile we're still playing with Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic Tube; check out our first impressions.

SlingLink Wireless adapter for SlingCatcher pops up then is pulled

SlingLink Wireless adapter for SlingCatcher pops up then is pulled

Someone at Sling Media have been playing peek-a-boo with the company's much-anticipated SlingLink Wireless adapter, the WiFi dongle that would let users cut the cord between their SlingCatcher and their router.  The USB stick appeared overnight on Sling's UK website but, when contacted for details, the company themselves claimed ignorance and promptly pulled the page; you can check out the cached page here.

SlingCatcher reviewed: Core functionality great, some rough edges

SlingCatcher reviewed: Core functionality great, some rough edges

Sling Media's SlingCatcher has only been officially shipping since this morning, but already Sling Community have their review posted.  The SlingCatcher works a little like a SlingBox in reverse, displaying content either from one of the company's own streamers, from a computer running the supplied SlingProjector software, or from an attached storage device.  The review breaks down the media player into each of these three categories, and for its primary function of gobbling up SlingBox content it looks like the SlingCatcher is a winner.

SlingCatcher unboxed: no SlingBox PRO-HD 1080i until update

SlingCatcher unboxed: no SlingBox PRO-HD 1080i until update

The SlingCatcher is a slight tweak in direction for Sling Media; unlike their SlingBox media streamers, whose purpose is to take what TV content you receive (whether cable, satellite or over-the-air) and funnel it out to you while you travel, the SlingCatcher gobbles up streamed content (from a SlingBox or from any number of online sources) and puts it on your TV.  It was announced back at CES 2007, but pre-orders only started back in September.  Now the first devices are reaching buyers for some long-awaited unboxing.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 39 2008

Netbooks made their typical strong showing this week, with ASUS announcing their intention to put 3G HSUPA into the Eee PC 901.  Meanwhile their N10 was reviewed and deemed the first netbook "suitable for serious gaming", a promising title indeed.  Lenovo's S10 also hit reviewers' benches, making a strong - if at times warm - case for the smallest IdeaPad, while Packard Bell unveiled their 'dot', targeted much more at the budget end of the scale.  They'll have a fight on their hands, though; SlashGear reviewed the Acer Aspire One this week too, and when it comes to value for money it's a tough one to beat.

Arguably the biggest news of the week, however, has been T-Mobile's G1 - the first Android-based handset to be officially announced.  Our sister-site AndroidCommunity.com ran a Live Blog of the whole event (and gave away a G1 to one lucky forum member), and we've got the photo galleries and hands-on video to show for it.
