Dell Adamo XPS Shows Itself Live and In the Flesh

Labels: , , ,

It looks like this is one of the first photos online of the Adamo XPS open and showing its pretty self for you. The thing is that I still don't know where the battery on this notebook is. And no, it's not available today even though we heard last weekend that it would be. As you can see it has a chiclet keyboard and a touchpad. Gizmodo mentioned that this notebook is surprisingly quite sturdy and they actually put up a video of how to open up the laptop.

BlackBerry Storm 9550 Spotted in Best Buy Mobile Buyer's Guide, Left Out the Number 2 Part

Labels: , , , , ,

In the US, it looks like the Storm 2 has found its way into Best Buy Mobile's Buyer Guide. But, the thing here is that it looks like Best Buy forgot - or purposely - left out the the fact that this is the second Storm. The average user likely won't know that the Storm 9550 is the Storm 2, so I think it'd be better marketing if they were to mention that somewhere.

Motorola Droid Launching In November; Verizon Holding An Event For It On October 28th In New York

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

Although the Motorola Droid should get all official next week - supposedly October 28th - and we should, obviously, see a launch sometime in November. Well, this picture above basically confirms it. Earlier, sources were saying that picture meant that Verizon would launch on November 9th (11th month, 9th day), but I believe that Verizon is talking about a month (11th month being November) and the year (09 meaning 2009) here. Either way this looks to be a handset that may save Motorola's future.

Update: According to Unwired View and Phone Arena, Verizon is counting down to the official launch of the Motorola Droid which will take place in New York City on October 28th.
