Philips D908 Handset Coming To China Telecom Soon With 1GB of RAM

Labels: , , ,

It's now official. What you see above is the Philips D908 and it's headed to China soon (on China Telecom) with Windows Mobile 6.5. The spec sheet is looking pretty good, since it's packing: a 3.2-inch WVGA touchscreen display, GSM / CDMA / EV-DO connectivity, WiFi / GPS / Bluetooth 2.1 support, a 5MP camera, 2GB of ROM, and a microSD card slot. But that's not all it's packing. Somehow Philips managed to pack in 1GB of RAM into this high-end handset, so that will improve the performance. We don't know how much this handset will launch for yet.

Labels: , , , ,

Remember that Notion Ink smartpad? Well, Crunch Gear is hearing that this tablet will get launched in June 2010. That's hoping that the Nvidia Tegra 2 (T20) graphics don't get delayed. Well, it's 6 months away if everything goes according to plan. Let's hope it does. Maybe we'll even see a prototype by CES.

Lenovo Already Cooking Up Their Own E-Book Reader

Labels: , ,

Lenovo looks like they're planning to hop onto the e-book reader bandwagon as well. Engadget is hearing that Lenovo may already have started their internal testing on this new device of theirs. But, I'm guessing this won't be an e-reader killer like the one Apple is brewing up. Maybe we'll see it at CES 2010.


Nokia Confirms Dual-SIM S40 Handset For Next Year; Also QWERTY and Touch UI


Looks like Nokia is really planning on creating their own dual-SIM handset. These handsets will also be running their Symbian S40 OS (not S60) and there could actually be more than one of them coming next year. Nokia's executive VP of devices said, "Next year you can also expect other developments in Series 40 such as adding QWERTY keyboards, dual SIM, touch UI, and so on." Look out for these handsets at either CES or MWC next year.

LG LS680 Spotted In Sprint's Systems, It's Running Android

Labels: , , , , , ,

Right now we don't know anything about this handset from LG. All that we do know is that it's headed to Sprint with the Android OS. We don't even know what version of Android it'll be running. Could this be what Sprint and LG are cooking up at CES 2010? Possibly - but, personally, I don't think so.

5 HP Notebooks Slip Out; Envy 14 and 17 On the Way

Labels: , , ,

A couple of days before CES 2010, it looks like new HP notebooks have just been spotted. More notably, it's the HP Envy 14 and 17. Surprisingly enough, both of these models may not have integrated optical drives for some reason, since HP Korean's website lists the HP external USB DVD Drive as a specification.

The other set of notebooks that have been leaked out is the successor to the Elitebook 2730p tablet notebook, the 2530p tablet notebook, and the 17-inch 8730w notebook. They're on their way.


Google Nexus One Bluetooth Dock Passes FCC; Ugly Car Clip Spotted In the Wild Too

Labels: , , , , ,

Spotted at the FCC this morning is a new Bluetooth dock for the Google Nexus One. At this point, I don't know why the dock has Bluetooth, since the Nexus One itself has Bluetooth, but we'll have to wait and see when this all goes down early next year. Check out the FCC filing here.

Update: There's also another Nexus One product that was spotted and it's below (courtesy of Engadget). It's the Nexus One car clip and someone decided to snap a picture of it in their car. Luckily when you place the phone on it, it hides the ugly.

Google Chrome OS Netbook Specs Leak Out; Multitouch and SSD

Labels: , ,

You know those Google Chrome OS netbooks that are coming next year? Well, some specs for their netbook have decided to trickle out this morning. In these netbooks, Engadget is hearing that they'll have: 10.1-inch multitouch displays with a 1,280 x 720 resolution, an ARM CPU, a 64GB SSD, WiFi support, 2GB of RAM, integrated 3G support, Bluetooth support, an Ethernet jack, a couple of USB ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a multicard reader, a 4 / 6-cell battery, and optional GPS support.

These specs won't stay the same in every single Chrome OS netbook, but for the most part that should be a standard one. We'll likely see slightly higher and slightly lower configurations on more expensive and less expensive netbooks, respectively.


11.6-Inch Gateway EC18T Notebook Tablet Passes the FCC

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The rebranded Acer Aspire 1420P has just passed the FCC as the Gateway EC18T. This notebook tablet features: an 11.6-inch display (looking like it'll be touchscreen and rotatable), an Intel SU2300 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, an Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, up to a 500GB HDD, and there's a battery in there that should last about 8 hours. This notebook tablet should be available early next year and I assume the price won't be too steep. Check out the FCC filing here - but it's a PDF.

Labels: , , ,

With these Christmas holidays passing, more and more news is starting to flow in through the door. And today, there's just this new video on the upcoming HTC Espresso's UI. As you can see in the video below it's an improved HTC Sense UI, it's being demoed on an HTC Hero and the build isn't final. That means, yes, there are some laggy spots but don't forget that the Espresso will have a slightly faster CPU as well. Enjoy.
