Lenovo IdeaPad S12, U350, G550, IdeaCentre C300 All Get Official

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Warning, this will be a fairly lengthy blog post, seeing how I have to talk about 4 new Lenovo products.

What you see above is the Lenovo S12 netbook which switches it up a bit. The S12 reportedly has: a 12.1-inch WUXGA (1,280 x 800 resolution) LED-backlit display, a full-sized keyboard, 1GB of RAM, Intel's Atom 1.6GHz N270 CPU, your choice of 160 / 250 / 320GB HDDs, a 6-cell battery option, an Ethernet port, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3 USB 2.0 sockets, an ExpressCard slot, a 4-in-1 card reader, and VGA / HDMI outputs. Thankfully, if will be running Windows XP and is the world's first netbook with Nvidia's Ion chipset, which should create some hype. The said netbook is capable of playing 1080p video playback and will be available next month for $449 USD.

Next up on the list is the IdeaPad U350 (pictured above) and it's barely a notebook with its 13.3-inch LED-backlit display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution. Other specs for this laptop include: up to 500GB of HDD storage, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, your choice of a 1.2GHz Celeron 723 or 1.3GHz SU2700 or 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo SU3500, GMA 4500M / 4500 MHD graphics, an integrated 1.3MP webcam, a multi-touch trackpad, and an optional 8-cell battery, which supposedly lasts 10 hours. It will run on Windows Vista, but I suggest just using the Windows 7 Beta to lengthen the battery life.

The fairly uninteresting G550 is next with its business targeted audience. The G550 has: a 15.6-inch display, WiFi, Bluetooth, a DVD burner, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 320GB of HDD storage, a Core 2 Duo CPU, your choice of GMA X4500 or GeForce G105M graphics, HDMI output, and a 6-cell battery that is said to last 5 hours.

Last, but not least, is a low end all-in-one PC. It has: a 20-inch display, Intel's Atom 230 CPU, up to just 2GB of DDR2 RAM, integrated Intel graphics, a 160GB HDD (up to 640GB), an Ethernet port, WiFi, a 1.3MP webcam, FireWire, 6 USB 2.0 slots, and a 6-in-1 multicard reader. This low-end IdeaCentre C300 will start at a low $449 USD price tag, so it's good for starters.

BlackBerry Onyx, Magnum, Non-Flip Pearl 3G, Gemini Hitting AT&T This Year

Labels: , , , , , ,

More BlackBerry news for all of the lovers out there!! According to the latest news, here are 4 more BlackBerries set to hit AT&T this year. Besides the Onyx (pictured above), there is the BlackBerry Magnum. It has: the same processor as the Bold, a touchscreen, QWERTY keypad, quad-band GSM / GRS / EDGE, GPS, and WiFi. Looks like the Magnum will be that touchscreen BlackBerry Bold that everyone has been talking about.

Up next is the new non-flip Blackberry Pearl that has 3G, 3.6Mbps HSDPA support, Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a trackball, a SureType QWERTY keypad, and aGPS.

Last, but not least, it's the BlackBerry Gemini. It has: a QVGA display, a 512MHz processor, 256MB of flash memory with a microSD slot, 128MB of RAM, Bluetooth, a 2MP camera with a flash, a trackball, a QWERTY keyboard, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and also has the possibility of GPS. The sad thing is that the Gemini looks like it may not have 3G - and there's been no report of WiFi in today's news.

There are no release dates for any of these devices, but I'm pretty sure we can expect them by the end of the year.


Nokia Mako, Thresher, Grouper, Snapper Hitting AT&T This Year

Labels: , , , ,

Nokia hasn't announced these devices, but somehow they have leaked out. The first one I'll talk about is pictured above, it's the Nokia Mako. The Mako has: a 2.4-inch QVGA display, aGPS,  a 2MP camera, 128MB of internal storage with a microSD slot, dual-band HSDPA, and will run on an S60 3.2-based platform, similar to the E71x. The expected release is said to be June 5 on AT&T, but it's probably been pushed back, since we haven't heard anything about it... until now.

Another handset that has been leaked is the Nokia Thresher. It will run S40, so I don't know how people will feel about that. This device has: a 3.2MP camera with a flash, HSDPA and aGPS. It is scheduled for a September release date on AT&T's network.

Nothing much is known about the Nokia Grouper. But, what I do know is that it has a 2MP camera, and also HSDPA support and aGPS. It's expected to be released this July.

The last device that has been leaked is the Nokia Snapper which has: tri-band HSPA, Bluetooth 2.1, aGPS, and a 2MP camera. This is set for an August release date. I don't know how stable all of these release dates are, but they are all set to hit AT&T.
