If you pre-ordered the Entourage eDGe dual-screen tablet / e-book reader then the good news is that it's now shipping.

Check it out here for $499 if you want to pick one up.

LG GW990 Caught On Video, Demoing Itself Beside the HTC HD2; GT540 and Mini GD880 Too!

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

We've seen a bit about the LG GW990 so far - and it could be the first "handset" running on Nokia and Intel's new MeeGo OS. It looks like it's just been caught demoing itself on video side-by-side with an already large HTC HD2. It makes the HD2 look puny to be honest, so I hope you have some large pockets. The good news here is that the GW990 looks pretty smooth as you can see with the multitouchiness - but they still have to iron out some of it. First the LG BL40 then the GW990 with the weird aspect ratios.

The video's quite long but they also show off the GT540 and the Mini GD880 as well.

The base model will cost you $699, so if you want to upgrade some of the internal specs then you'll have to dish out a bit more money.

Labels: , , , , , ,

According to good ol' Digitimes, Acer is working on some notebooks running Intel's new Calpella line-up of CPUs. This is some pretty juicy information considering that Calpella includes Core i5 / i7 ULV CPUs so they have that Turbo Boost technology. These rumoured notebooks are expected to launch in Q2 of this year and will come in 13, 14, and 15-inch models. 

They're said to have a 1-inch thin body too, so we're still expecting them to launch that 19mm thin notebook in the future as well.

BlackBerry Storm Slider Pictured and Rumoured To Bring BB OS 6.0 With It

Labels: ,

It definitely looks weird but this could be what the BlackBerry Storm slider will look like. The touchscreen display (360 x 480 resolution) will be accompanied with a slide-out QWERTY keypad - Palm Pre-style. Apparently, this handset will be running on BB OS 6.0 (not out yet, of course) and it'll have WiFi 802.11n support. It's said to have GSM / HSPA connectivity - so it won't be locked on Verizon.

Apparently though, we'll see the touchscreen Bold (Dakota / Magnum) after they launch this handset. 

Blizzard Still Planning To Launch StarCraft II In H1 2010... Hopefully.

Labels: , ,

There are a couple of people out there who are lucky enough to be playing the StarCraft II Beta and, unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. The good news is that Blizzard is targeting a 3 - 5 month time-frame for the beta and they're really targeting a H1 2010 launch for the game so that's great news. Then again, we'll believe it when we see it. Let's hope this is true though because I'm not leaving my house this Summer if this is true.
