Sony PS3 Slim Being Sold Early to Those Who Look Hard Enough

Sony PS3 Slim Being Sold Early to Those Who Look Hard Enough

So, we'll admit that that title may be a bit misleading. Why? Because it looks like people aren't having to look that hard at all to find a few random (or perhaps not too random) pieces of Sony's new hardware floating around in retail stores. If you'll remember right, Sony said that the Slim wouldn't be sold until September 1st, but it's beginning to look like that release date might not have been as set in stone as originally thought. Well, let's hope that's the case, or there's a lot of stores out there breaking that one cardinal rule.

Walmart recall 1.5m bargain DVD players over fire risk

At just $29, Durabrand's DVD players were selling like hot cakes at Walmart stores.  Unfortunately it turns out that they're also going up in flames like hot coals, so the retailer is having to recall around 1.5m of them.  Apparently there have been twelve reported cases of the Durabrand player overheating, with five going on to catch fire and cause "property damage".

Toshiba Satellite L355 down to $348 in latest Walmart deal

Toshiba Satellite L355 down to $348 in latest Walmart deal

It doesn't exactly hold up to their last laptop deal - which saw a Compaq discounted to $298 - but if you fancy a 17-inch display and another big-brand name then Walmart's latest notebook promotion may tick your boxes.  Up for $348 is the Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915, a 2.2GHz Celeron 900 machine with 1,440 x 900 display, 3GB of RAM and a 250GB 5,400rpm hard-drive.

Walmart $298 Compaq laptop: who needs a netbook?

Walmart $298 Compaq laptop: who needs a netbook?

If there's one thing this dour economy is good for, it's pushing down prices.  Walmart have just announced that they'll be offering a $298 notebook, the Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM, complete with a 160GB hard-drive and 3GB of RAM, from July 26th at 8am.  The promotion is part of the retailer's back-to-school sale, and they're unsurprisingly warning that stocks will be limited.

ASUS notebooks & Eee PCs headed to Walmart?

ASUS notebooks & Eee PCs headed to Walmart?

ASUS are eyeing up US retailer Wal-Mart as the next potential point of sale for their notebooks, according to the latest rumors coming out of Taiwan, as the company explores ways in which it can break the 1m US sales barrier.  That means buyers will soon be able to find ASUS notebooks and netbooks, most likely at the budget end of the spectrum, on the shelves, as ASUS attempts to push past Acer's netbook lead.

In 2008, ASUS sold 650,000 notebooks - including Eee PC netbook models - in the US.  That's compared to Acer's 16-percent market share, with shipments in Q4 2008 alone amounting to between 1.4 and 1.5 million notebooks and netbooks.

Wal-Mart to sell 3G iPhone gets Official, only $2 cheaper

Wal-Mart to sell 3G iPhone gets Official, only $2 cheaper

An official announcement today confirmed the leak of an internal Wal-mart memo detailing its iPhone 3G rollout and nullified any $99 4GB iPhone speculation from the mega-retailer. Starting Sunday, Wal-mart will sell the Apple phones for $2 less than the regular price with a two-year contract to be available at its 2,500 chained-store.

The “Every day low price” of the 8 GB iPhone 3G will be selling at $197 and $297 for the 16 GB version, not much of a deep discount we were hoping from the giant retailer. In fact, you can pick one up at local Best Buy for $7 less! Continue Reading

Walmart iPhone 3G rumors continue: 8GB for $197 on Dec 28th?

More iPhone 3G rumors swirling today, as conflicting news about Walmart becoming the next official handset retailer comes to a head.  Last week, the word was that a $99 iPhone 3G with just 4GB of storage would go on sale at Walmart; today, both Reuters and Bloomberg are suggesting the same thing, with a December 15th launch date tipped from a Californian Walmart clerk.  However, Mac Rumors reports that leaked promo material confirms that, while Walmart will be selling the smartphone, it will be the existing 8GB model with a mere two dollar saving.
