Lenovo X1; Combining A Bit Of Everything

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

This Lenovo X1 (sold in only China) handset won the Red Dot design award. But why? It looks like it has pulled a couple of things from a couple of big manufacturers and I wouldn't have got these ideas without Engadget's point-of-view first. First of all the naming is similar to the Sony Ericsson X1 that is also sold in China. To Engadget, it looks like a Samsung Instinct with the TouchWiz UI. Keep in mind that Lenovo had some balls to call this "unique" UI the "Touch Dream", "which sounds just a little bit like an HTC device." I should also point out that the keypad looks similar to the Nokia N86, which is not a good thing. Throw them altogether and I think the handset looks decent, besides the keypad.


No Mobile Devices Hacked At Pwn2Own

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

Earlier this week, at this year's Pwn2Own contest at the CanSecWest security conference, Safari was hacked in around 10 seconds. Mozilla's Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer crumbled shortly after, under the abilities of a man named Nils. Google's Chrome was fortunately unscratched at this year's Pwn2Own contest. Surprisingly, this year no mobile devices were hacked. The iPhone, Symbian, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile were safe from all the determined hackers. The hackers said that next year they would be more prepared to hack these devices, so watch out Windows Mobile 6.5 / 7 because my bet is that it will go down first.


No Playstation 3 Price Cut Today

Labels: , , ,

Clearly, the rumoured PS3 price drop proved to be false today. The price drop that was supposed to be in effect today, has not happened. There was no Sony press conference yesterday, regarding the Playstation 3's price drop and no Playstation 3 price drop at EB Games or at GameStop stores today. It's unfortunate, but then again, the source was an EB Games employee (Liar!). It's hopefully still coming, even though Sony reps are constantly denying the price drop rumour.
