Four Asus Tablets Get Priced and Dated; 10-Inch Android 3.0 Tablet For $399, 8-Inch Eee Tablet For $300

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Well, well, well, a bunch of Asus' tablets have just been priced and somewhat dated. The first one is the 10-inch Eee Pad EP101TC tablet which will be running Android (3.0 "Gingerbread"); this will be available in March 2011 for $399. The company also has the black-and-white Eee Tablet e-book reader which will be priced at $300 when it hits the market this October. The other two tablets are running Microsoft's Windows. The more affordable one will sport a 10-inch display and will be running Windows Embedded Compact 7 and will cost less than $499 when it hits the market in January. The last one is the most expensive of the bunch and it'll cost you $1,000. Apparently, the 12-inch EP121 Windows 7 based tablet (which probably won't sell like hotcakes) will be so expensive because of the dock which will turn it into a laptop; this will be available in late Q4 or this year or early Q1 2011.

Labels: , , , ,

A new Samsung smartphone has leaked out today and it's unnamed right now. A developer, Andrej Tozon, twitpic'd this earlier this morning. It's got basic design with no curves and WMPowerUser points out that this is not the Samsung Cetus. Specs are unknown right now but they should meet the minimum requirements which are already pretty good.


Dell Blaze Leaks Out With Android 1.5 In Tow

Labels: , , ,

Another Dell smartphone running Android has leaked out before its release and this one is being called the Blaze. The smartphone seems to be a mid-level one since the screen looks quite small. Sadly, it's running the old school Android 1.5 (with Dell's custom UI) so let's hope and pray that Dell decides to update it to at least version 2.1 before it hits the market. Who knows exactly where this will hit.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

HTC is going to be holding an event on September 15th and it's looking like it'll be an Android smartphone. There are a couple of people out there who are hoping that it's a WP7 smartphone from the company but there are just way too many sources that are saying it'll be Android-based. Apparently though, it'll be the HTC Vision which will be hitting T-Mobile. In the smoke, you can faintly see the outline of a phone and that circle could actually be the lens on the back of the phone. Well, whatever it is just look out for it a month from now.
