T-Mobile Launching Two More Android Phones This Year; Thinking of Selling Android-Based Netbooks / Tablets Too!

Labels: , ,

The myTouch 3G is available for pre-orders on T-Mobile USA, but it's already been available - as the HTC Magic - at a bunch of other places for a while now. T-Mobile USA has mentioned that they are still launching two more Android-based handsets by the end of this year. Unfortunately, one of the two phones will not be the HTC Hero. The above photo is a skin for the myTouch 3G - it looks and feels like golf balls. According to Broadman, T-Mobile is also considering launching Android-based netbooks and/or tablets in "the first months of 2010." Are you excited?

What's Microsoft Announcing on Monday? A Web-Based Office?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Yesterday, I covered that Microsoft will be announcing something on Monday to trump the success of the Google Chrome OS. The first rumour pointed out that Microsoft could be releasing their new browser, Gazelle, in order to compete with Google's browser, Chrome. Today's rumour is also regarding the announcement, but this time it's a web-based version of Microsoft Office. This will compete directly with Google Docs and could possibly affect the launch of Google's new OS. I don't know how much of a factor a web-based Microsoft Office would hurt Google.

First Shots of the Google Chrome OS Leaked Out? Nope, Fake

Labels: , ,

Keep in mind that these shots could be incredibly fake, so don't be too surprised if they are. According to the source, a Google rep showed this private beta build - of the Google Chrome OS - to an anonymous Acer parts supplier. The shot was snapped when the Google rep was distracted. That's what the story says at least. The highlights are below, courtesy of Engadget.

  • The "elegant" install on the Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop took about 10 minutes and 1 restart

  • Reboots desktop-to-desktop in about 25 seconds

  • It was "amazingly fast" in its stripped-down beta form

  • The blue orb on the auto-hiding "Chrome Bar" along the bottom of the UI is essentially the start menu

  • Navigating the file system can be done in "exploration" (like Windows explorer) or "browser" (search based) modes

  • The Chrome Bar can also host a search bar if configured

  • Future Chrome OS netbooks will feature an iconified Chrome key on the keyboard similar to the Windows flag key

  • It's still a long wait for the Google Chrome OS - second half of 2010 - so don't be surprised if a lot changes by then.

    Update on July 10th: These screenshots have been confirmed to be fake, according to Gizmodo. The artist confessed to mocking these up.
