Asus has unveiled their latest ultraportable and it's the 12.1-inch Lamborghini Eee PC VX6. This notebook sports a dual-core Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM, Nvidia Ion 2 graphics, Optimus technology, a 250GB HDD, Bluetooth 3.0 / WiFi b/g/n support, VGA / HDMI outputs, USB 2.0 / 3.0 ports, a multicard reader, a 1.3MP integrated webcam, and a 6-cell battery which will supposedly last 6 hours. It seems like a pretty good notebook on paper. You can get one right now in the UK for £499 ($799 USD). Yes, it's expensive because of the "Lamborghini" moniker.

Labels: , , ,

According to HP, the Palm Pre 2 will be available for pre-orders starting on November 8th - just like the title says. The exact quote was "HP for Students - US: Check out the new Palm Pre Plus 2, pre-orders begin 11/8." Right now we don't know if this is the Verizon [CDMA] model or or if it's the unlocked GSM model that a couple of people are waiting for.


Nokia X2-01 Is Another Entry-Level QWERTY Handset From the Company

Labels: ,

Yet another QWERTY handset from Nokia is on the way and it's the X2-01. This handset is sporting a QVGA display, Bluetooth support, an FM radio, and a microSD card slot. This is quite similar to the Nokia C3 but should be cheaper since it's missing a few key components. Compared to the Nokia C3, the X2-01 has no WiFi support and a 3MP camera (the C3 has a 2MP camera). Release date is unknown right now but it should be quite affordable.

Android-Based LG enV Pro Gets Pictured But Verizon Doesn't Want To Launch It Anymore

Labels: , , , , ,

Remember the LG enV Pro? Well, it was supposed to hit Verizon in about a week but apparently the carrier changed their mind about launching it. Android and Me points out that the handset was running Android 2.1 with some entry-level specs but failed to impress any of the testers. Oh well, it wasn't really much of a big deal for the high-end customers but I'm sure that some teens could be missing out on something here. Oh well, there are a few other entry-level Android handsets coming to T-Mobile in the future.

Dell Venue (aka Thunder) Hits the FCC Again, Good Enough For T-Mobile USA (1700MHz 3G Bands)

Labels: , , , , ,

The Dell Venue aka the Thunder has just hit the FCC again. This time it has the model code V03B002 and it's sporting 3G bands (1700MHz AWS) perfect for T-Mobile in the USA - the other model (here) was for AT&T in the US along with Rogers, Bell, and Telus in Canada. This is definitely great news. Remember that the Venue is similar to the Venue Pro spec-wise but it sports Android - instead of Windows Phone 7 - and does not have the portrait slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Check it out at the FCC.

Well, here's a bit of interesting news. A new LG tablet (model number H1000B) has hit the FCC with WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth support.

This tablet is said to be sporting an SD card reader along with Windows 7 as the OS. You should already know when we'll likely see this one getting official - at CES 2011. Check it out at the FCC.

7 and 10-Inch Creative Ziio Android-Based Tablets Get Official In London, Landing In December

Labels: , , , , ,

Out of all the companies out there I didn't think that today I'd be writing about new devices from Creative, but I am. They have just made their two tablets official as a part of their new Ziio line-up. These tablets come in 7 and 10-inch models and feature just about the same spec sheet. They both feature Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR / WiFi support, a microSD card slot, speakers, a ZiiLabs ZMS-08 CPU, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a miniUSB port, HD outputs, and Android 2.1. The 7-inch model sports a capacitive touchscreen display so that's a bit of good news.

The 8GB 7-inch model will cost you £199 ($320 USD), while the 16GB model will cost you £219 ($352 USD). The larger 10-inch tablet will cost you £249 ($400 USD) for 8GB and £269 ($432 USD) for 16GB. These tablets should be available in December.
