Labels: , , , ,

LG's first watch phone is pictured above, the GD910, and it looks like we've just got word that they're looking to refresh it. The first model was a bit too bulky for the female users, so they could be making a smaller variant.

We're also hearing that LG is planning on releasing a non-keyboard Android handset sometime in 2010. Let's hope this is the LG handset with the Snapdragon CPU.

Google Planning To Launch Chrome OS In About a Week From Now?

Labels: , ,

According to Tech Crunch's "reliable sources" Google's Chrome OS will launch in beta form in around a week from now. Don't expect it to be all that stable though; the driver support should also be lacking. There's really not that much to say, but netbooks shipping with Chrome OS is still scheduled for sometime next year - at least that's what we believe. I can't wait to try it out!

Android 2.0-Based "Vega" Tablet Meant To Be Used Around the House

Labels: , , , , ,

A small company named Innovative Converged Devices (ICD) has just unveiled the tablet you see above, dubbed Vega - reminding me of the Street Fighter character. Anyways, this device actually seems pretty interesting. It has a nice look to it and it really helps that it's running Android 2.0. It'll be available in three sizes: 7, 11, and 15-inches. Of course, it'll have WiFi / 3G support and it'll reportedly be "low cost." Thankfully, it'll have a stand - as you can see below.

Other specs include: a front-facing webcam, Bluetooth support, 512MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, and even Nvidia's Tegra chipset. This tablet will be available through a bunch of carriers in North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
