More details about the slimline Acer Aspire One spotted yesterday have emerged, in the shape of some hands-on images and what are suggested to be the new netbook's specifications. According to the anonymous source, the netbook - which is the ZG8 according to the product label - runs Intel's 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor with 1GB of RAM and, contrary to initial expectations, a 160GB hard-drive rather than an SSD.
Details of the upcoming 10-inch Acer Aspire One D150 have emerged, as the three different versions of the netbook to be available in France are detailed. The range, which starts at around €329 ($425), will go on sale in February with the entry-level D150-0B, with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of memory, 160GB hard-drive and 3-cell battery. That will be followed in March by two further versions, the D150-1B and D150-2BG, with the latter having such features as an improved Atom processor and integrated mobile broadband.

T-Mobile USA has announced plans to have 3G HSDPA coverage in 21 markets by mid-October, a schedule no doubt prompted by the imminent announcement of the T-Mobile G1, the first Android-powered cellphone on the market. The data-centric handset will be able to take advantage of up to 1Mbps download speeds, and will be announced on September 23rd (at an event Android Community will be Live Blogging).
It appears that there is another nationwide data outage at AT&T again. It was EDGE earlier this month, and now its UMTS.
So we already mentioned this, but we have something new, more specs, and a whole lot more pics. In fact if I recollect right, we didn’t have a single pic of the actual handset last time.
It has Bluetooth 2.0, Quad-Band GSM, Dual-Band UMTS, and a talk time of about 3 hours. There is the 2MP cam that has up to a 4x digital zoom, and other than all the video and music services that come with it, it has Java, and SMS, MMS, AIM, MSN, and Yahoo! instant messengers built in.
So some Italian site (morse.it) is claiming that Vodafone is getting the new 3G iPhone exclusively in all its coverage areas. Furthermore they claim that said iPhone won’t be announced until after the holiday season so as not to affect holiday sales of the current iPhone.
They are claiming that they have received the info from “highly reliable sources”, what kind of “highly reliable sources” is close enough to Apple, but far enough away to go to an Italian blog first? Whatever, we all know a 3G iPhone is due sometime next year, and I personally would be disappointed if it was UMTS and not EV-DO or HSDPA, or even better yet HSDPA/HSUPA.
If there is a WWAN network near you, this thing can connect to it, I’m not kidding. It has support for HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE, and GPRS, I mean, seriously, that’s a lot of different types of networks.
It has some software that comes built that I assume installs similar to that of software on a flash drive, so pretty much, you plug it in and you are off and running. The best part, its one of the first USB WWAN modems I have seen that isn’t god awful ugly.
