AT&T Pricing Details on HTC Tilt 2, HTC Pure, and Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60 Leak

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

AT&T is planning on launching a couple of big phones over the next month or so. This includes the HTC Tilt 2 (Touch Pro 2), the HTC Pure (Touch Diamond 2), and the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60. According to the latest unconfirmed news, the HTC Tilt 2 will be launching for $299.99 USD on a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate and $499.99 contract-free. The HTC Pure will be launching for $149.99 USD on a 2-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate and $349.99 contract-free. Lastly, the long-delayed Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60 will be launching for $299.99 USD on a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate and $549.99 USD contract-free. All three of these handsets are expected to launch by the end of the next month, but don't be surprised if the G60 gets delayed again... and again.

I think the Tilt 2 and G60 are fairly overpriced, but the HTC Pure seems reasonable. What do you think?

Asus Eee PC 1201N With Ion Spotted Online; Eee PC T91MT To Sport Multi-Touchscreen

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

It looks like Asus could be announcing their first laptop with Nvidia's Ion graphics. If you check out this online Chinese retailer though, the Asus Eee PC 1201N netbook looks like it will have the power of Ion. This netbook was a part of Asus' leaked roadmap, so the netbook is likely real. Other specs include: a 12-inch display with a 1,366 x 768 resolution, an Intel Atom 1.6GHz N270 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB HDD, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, an Ethernet / VGA port, audio jacks, and a 6-cell (5,200 mAh) battery.

We don't know when it will be available, but it's likely we'll see this netbook with Windows 7 on-board, which means at least another month. The product picture could be real, but it could be an existing 1101HA netbook, so just keep that in mind.

Like the Eee PC 1201N another netbook looks to be on the way. This one appears to be a variation of the Eee PC T91 netbook / tablet. The Eee PC T91MT will be sporting a multi-touchscreen display and will likely be available in late October / early November with Windows 7 pre-installed.
