11.5-Inch Skiff Reader Sports WiFi and Touchscreen Display

Labels: , ,

Well this is pretty interesting. This is the Skiff Reader that's sporting an 11.5-inch touchscreen display (with a 1,600 x 1,200 resolution), which is the biggest reader of its kind. I don't believe the thickness was mentioned, but if we go by the picture it's looking pretty damn thin. This reader will be outed with WiFi and connectivity to Sprint's 3G network. I'm hoping that it'll be coloured, but it doesn't look like it will be. The price hasn't been mentioned, but it'll hopefully be available sometime this year. I wonder if it'll look that hot when it gets shown off in public.

Update: According to Maximum PC, this e-book reader will measure right around 0.25 inches thick, which is pretty amazing.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 Now Available Online For €500, $710 USD, $800 CAD

Labels: , ,

It looks like Plemix (an e-tailer) now has the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 available for €490 ($707 USD and $800 CAD). It could be a bit high priced at this point since it's rocking last year's Qualcomm CPU. The rest of the specs are great, but it does seem a bit overpriced. If you've been waiting for it though, go out and get it now. It's a WinMo 6.5 handset.

Haleron Bringing 10-Inch iLEN Tablet To CES 2010

Labels: , , , ,

We've seen a couple of Haleron netbooks in the past, so this is a new one from them. This is their iLEN tablet. I believe we'll see this at CES 2010, but I'm not sure. It's got: a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, an Intel Atom N450 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, a 1.3MP webcam, WiFi a/b/g, Bluetooth support, 3G connectivity, Windows 7, and a 3,500 mAh battery that should last around 2.5 hours. The battery is looking mediocre at this point, and the rest of the specs are alright as well. This tablet should start shipping on January 15th for $419 USD.

Dell Inspiron 15 To Get Refreshed With Intel Core i3 CPU

Sony Ericsson Kurara Gets a QWERTY Keyboard? Codenamed "Kanna"

Labels: , , ,

At this point, the Sony Ericsson Kurara hasn't even been officially introduced yet, but a new picture of it looks like it has just popped up. Well, it's got the Kurara looks but it's clearly packing a QWERTY keyboard, which looks like it was seriously half-assed. Maybe Sony Ericsson decided to tack on a QWERTY keyboard on this handset, since their cameraphone king will still be the Satio. It's clearly running S60 5th Edition, but let's hope they make it official... you know, this week.

Update: According to Fone Arena, this handset is being named (or at least codenamed) the "Kanna." It's said to be sporting: a 3.2-inch touchscreen display with a 360 x 640 resolution, a QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, a 3.5mm headphone jack, an 8.1MP AF camera, and S60 5th Edition.
