The budget ultraportable trend showed no signs of slowing this week, as Acer's Aspire One hit US shelves priced from $379.  Meanwhile, sources close to Dell's suppliers tipped the company's upcoming 'E' netbook as carrying a mere $299 price tag, and perhaps even landing as early as next month.

As for grown-up notebooks, Intel finally made the Centrino 2 platform official, and with it the promise of not only faster processors but native draft-N WiFi support and longer battery life.  In fact this week the company had plenty to be pleased about, as they soundly thrashed arch-rival AMD with their Q2 2008 financial performance.

Our traditional Sunday "Week in Review" is a little late this time around, but we hope you can forgive us as we've been trying out something new.  To mark the official launch of SlashGear.TV - where you'll be able to find all of our hands-on, unboxing and review videos from SlashGear and all of its sibling sites - we've switched to a video Week in Review.  It's also a chance to introduce our two new writers, Bree Pearson and Ashley Ahern, who will be hosting each week.

Unsurprisingly the iPhone 3G has overshadowed just about all other news this week, with Steve Jobs taking to the Keynote stage at WWDC 2008 on Monday and announcing Apple's updated cellphone.  Packing 3G, GPS, improved software and more into an only slightly thicker (and curvier) chassis, the iPhone 3G is destined to make waves when it launches on July 11th, especially given the lower price of $199 (for the 8GB model).  We live-blogged the Keynote and many of you were good enough to join us; check out our coverage here, and click over to iPhone Buzz for more up-to-the-minute iPhone news.

With Computex 2008 came more budget ultraportable news than many of us could stomach this week, as several manufacturers took the opportunity to confirm their machines (most of them previewed to death beforehand) and legions of others attempted to get their foot in the OEM door.  ASUS finally took the wraps off the Eee PC 901, 1000 and 1000(H), while MSI's Wind was made official; Acer confirmed their Aspire One notebook, which was made special by virtue of the fact that we only found out it was coming last week.  Meanwhile Dell held back on their Inspiron Mini, citing delays in tweaking the keyboard, and ASUS launched their low-cost offensive on the desktop with the Eee Box B202.

The major news this week came out of Google's IO Conference, with the Android team unveiling the latest build of the mobile platform and a slick touchscreen handset to demonstrate it on.  We usually leave cellphone news to our sister sites PHONE Magazine and SlashPhone, but the Android handset - complete with compass-navigated Street View and slick animations - was too good to miss.  Considering the feedback over at Android Community, Google look like they've recaptured any momentum lost since MWC in February.

After a few weeks of budget, mobile laptops grabbing the headlines, its been the turn of monstrous gaming machines to storm the limelight.  Acer announced their first serious gamer's desktop, the Aspire Predator, which is intended to take the breed out of the boutique and into mainstream computer stores.  Alienware struck back with an updated Area-51 ALX; the industry's first overclocked 4GHz Core 2 Extreme aimed to put Acer back into their place.

ASUS continued their assault on the budget computing market this week, with the Eee PC 900 finally launching in the US while its Intel Atom powered sibling the PC 901 broke cover.  We also saw a live photo of the Eee Box B202, a desktop version.  It looks as though the rumors of a separate Eee brand could be true; the ASUS logo is notable for its absence on the new products.  Meanwhile, OLPC and Microsoft finally shook hands on a Windows XP deal for the XO education notebook, and Fujitsu showed off their own Atom-based ultraportable, the U2010 UMPC complete with 3.5G WWAN and GPS.

This week's highlight has been the SlashGear team knuckling down to cover HTC's London launch of the Touch Diamond smartphone.  Our hands-on video of the Windows Mobile 6.1 device is pulling in some serious views, so if the thought of a 3G iPhone is leaving you cold then you need to be checking out the competition.

Meanwhile, budget ultraportables continued their onslaught, with pre-order pricing for both MSI's Wind and HP's XP version of the 2133 Mini-Note announced.  ASUS hasn't been letting the grass grow under them either, confirming that the Eee PC 900 will hit the US on May 12th.  Slightly bigger, word of Dell's upcoming Inspiron 1435, 1535 and 1735 ranges leaked, bringing with them some of the XPS' specs including optional 3G and Blu-ray.
