Rogers Will Have 4G By 2010, Wii's and PS3's (and 360's) Audience, BenQ nScreen i91, Haier's Devices, Maingear Prelude 2 Is 3D

For some Canadian news today, a strong rumour has it that Rogers is slowly gearing up towards 4G services by 2010. February 2010, to be exact. It may be first hitting Vancouver before anywhere else, but whatever. "The company also reportedly promises fast downstream speeds in real conditions. A connection without any optimization produces about 50Mbps. Techniques to optimize the link would net about 70Mbps by the time the service is available." This looks like good news and we're about a year away from 4G, yes!

No surprises here as the Wii is popular among boys who are ranging from 6-11 years old (the Michael Jackson of consoles) and also women who are ranging from 25-34 years old. The 360 is most popular with the male category ranging from 12-17 year olds. And the PS3's main audience are males ranging from 18-24 years old. This would obviously make the Wii for little kids and the PS3 is seen to be for the "mature gamer." Hence, why i want a damn Playstation 3 already.

BenQ has finally released their first all-in-one PC. The 18.5-inch nScreen i91 will also have 1GB of memory (only!?), a 160GB HDD and a webcam. This may not seem too attractive at first, but it will only cost you around $517 USD. That's fairly cheap for an all-in-one PC. Looks like BenQ is just looking out for the consumer, cause of the current economic crisis. The i91 seems to be running Vista with 1GB of memory in the screenshot, so i suggest you get a Windows 7 Beta CD (or torrent it) for the well-needed upgrade. Windows 7 runs better with a minimal amount of RAM compared to Vista.

Haier showed off a variety of devices at this year's MWC, including: MID's, netbooks and phones. While there were no specs on most of their devices, there were 2 devices that were Android-based. There was a phone that looked like the Blackberry 8900 and also another one that was similar to the Storm. The phone that looked similar to the Storm was running a new OS, but there is no word on the other devices.

This interesting looking thing here is the Prelude 2 from Maingear. Judging from their own word, they make "high perfomance luxury computers." By utilizing the NVIDIA's GeForce 3D Vision, Maingear was able to make this 3D gaming system. The PC also comes equipped with a 22-inch SyncMaster display, Intel's Core i7 processor and also has the funky-looking 3D glasses inside for you. WoW in 3D anyone? I heard it's not all it's cracked up to be.
