Sony OLED Walkman Specs, Intel Penryn CPUs, LG News: Zenon, Cooky (KP500)

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Finally the full spec sheet of Sony's iPod Touch competitor has been revealed. Besides having a (nice?) marble finish, the Sony X1000 Walkman has a 3-inch OLED touchscreen, 32GB storage (not sure if the 16GB will still be available), YouTube support, the NetFront web browser, integrated noise cancellation, FM radio, 802.11 g/b WiFi, 33 hours of music / 9 hours of video playback and has "MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV audio / AVC, H.264, MPEG4, WMV video" support. If the price stays the same as before, you're looking at around $400 USD for this Walkman, so maybe the iPod Touch is still a better choice. The iPod Touch could have a better browser and has the famous App Store that everyone loves. The screen on this Sony Walkman is what makes it stand out though, boasting the OLED display makes the screen fairly brighter than other devices.

With netbooks gaining popularity, Intel is putting more and more focus on their Atom processors. They are now working on Penryn-based processors that are clocking in at 3GHz+. These processors will be part of "Intel's Montevina Plus platform", which focuses on HD capabilities. If you want your new netbook with these Penryn-based processors, they should be available in Q2 this year, which isn't too far away. You should also be looking at handing over about $600 USD - $1,000 USD extra moolah.

A new LG handset has surfaced. It is the LG Zenon and is expected to be available on April 10 through AT&T. The Zenon has a 2.8-inch (240 x 480 resolution) touchscreen, 3G, Bluetooth, WiFi, a microSD slot, a 3MP camera, aGPS, accelerometer, proximity sensor and even a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. This phone looks pretty decent and i found it on Phone Arena and, surprisingly enough, not on Engadget or Gizmodo, so it must be an overlooked / old phone. It looks decent and i'm especially liking the slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

The successor to the LG Cookie is almost here. Unfortunately, it looks like it will only be available in Korea and if it is released in Europe (for 300 Euros) will be without the TV tuner. Anyways, the LG Cooky's (KP500) spec sheet aren't entirely revealed, but it does have 3G and will also have the new S-Class 3D UI. The Cooky will be available in 3 colours: Shimmering White, Shimmering Black and Shimmering Rose. The Cooky will be available in June for all of you Koreans.
