This Sony Ericsson was once just a concept and we found out last week that the handset that was codenamed "Kiki" is now the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness.

Motorola DEXT / CLIQ To Be Available For Pre-Orders On Orange UK Starting On September 22nd

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

The Motorola CLIQ is already up on T-Mobile's website with a "Coming Soon" badge and now we're hearing that the CLIQ - that will launch as the Motorola DEXT overseas - will be available for pre-orders starting on September 22nd on Orange UK. The pricing hasn't been mentioned, but I'm pretty sure it'll be available for free. The key here is that you'll be stuck on a contract in which you'll have to fork over at least £35 ($59 USD) a month. Don't forget that this Android device has Motorola's MOTOBLUR UI, so it looks more attractive than some Android phones out there.

Apple has just released yet another "Get a Mac" ad and it's called PC Innovation Lab. You can check it out on Apple's website now - since I sadly don't know how to embed their video on my blog post. To be honest, I thought this ad was kind of lame...

Labels: , , , ,

Microsoft has just confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 will have minimum requirements on their handsets. We heard about the Microsoft "Pink" requirements a while back and they look like pretty decent minimum requirements right now. A year from now, I'm pretty sure most of the features on that list will be standard though. The real details on these requirements haven't been mentioned yet.

The Samsung Star S5230 has been available for a while now, but it looks like Samsung is going to try to boost its sales a little bit more. They are going to be releasing this handset in the Middle East with WiFi support, which is great news. The rest of the specs remain the same though, so you shouldn't be surprised to see the same old: 3-inch touchscreen display, 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth support, and microSD card slot.

Zune HD PMP Not Hitting Europe Until Next Year - Great One Microsoft

Labels: , , , , , ,

This definitely sucks for Microsoft and whoever's interested in the Zune HD - me included. According to Microsoft France, they won't be releasing the Zune HD until next year. The good news here is that you'll be able to scoop up an old-school Zune in Europe until next year; the bad news is that the awesome-sauce Zune HD PMP - with Nvidia's Tegra - won't be available for another 3 months.

It looks like Microsoft Zune HD will get stomped by the refreshed iPods - great.

On a side note, it looks like the Zune HD won't be hitting Canada until Christmas time, which means I won't be in the mood to get one anymore.

AMD Launches New Congo Platform CPUs - Their Answer To Intel ULVs

Labels: , ,

AMD has launched their new Congo platform of CPUs, which is their answer to Intel's ULV CPUs. The AMD Congo platform will feature ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics and will be able to stream 1080p video effortlessly. The AMD Turion Neo X2 clocks in at 1.6GHz and these new CPUs will reportedly increase battery life by over an hour compared to their older models. "AMD claims that Congo's 3D graphics performance is about 77 percent faster than Intel's, and that raw procecssor power speed makes it about 43 percent faster than an equivalent CULV chip in encoding video."

Systems based on Congo are already shipping from Acer and ASUS, though AMD plans to be much more aggressive in pushing the platform and expects 20 systems to ship on or before the launch of Windows 7.
