Google Nexus One Now Available On AT&T In the US and On Rogers In Canada!

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Finally! The Google Nexus One is now available in Canada via Rogers and on AT&T in the US. It's available for the same price, $529.99 USD, that you should be familiar with on T-Mobile. I don't know how much Google will charge your card if you order one from Canada though, but I'm guessing it'll roughly be $540 CAD. I'd go and get one but I'm still waiting for Google Voice. Check it out on Google.com/phone.

Update: According to Mobile Syrup, Google has just updated the Nexus One to show you that the Rogers-compatible model also works with Bell and Telus.

Labels: , , ,

Fujitsu has just revealed a bunch of new notebooks and desktops as a part of their proGREEN line-up. The LifeBook E780 and the S710 sport 14-inch and 15.6-inch displays, respectively, and they're both LED-backlit to save some energy. The 14-inch E780 notebook will reportedly last 18 hours because it'll be fueled by two batteries. The full spec sheet for either notebook hasn't been revealed yet. 

They also went on to unveil the Esprimo E9900 and P9900 which will both be running on new Intel Core i5 CPUs. Two workstations were announced as well and I'm talking about the Celsius W280 and the H700. The only thing we know about these is that they'll both be running Core i7 CPUs and the H700 model will have Nvidia graphics.

The price and release date wasn't mentioned.

Labels: , , ,

The title says it all. What you see above are the three Windows Phone 7 Series handsets that have been unveiled so far. From left to right, it's Samsung, Asus, and LG. I like the form factor of the Asus the best but the display on the Samsung one looks to be the brightest. The LG display also looks crisp and has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard which is a plus.

Lenovo ThinkPad Mini 10 Netbooked Spotted In Australia?

Labels: , ,

Apparently someone from Australia spotted a couple of ThinkPad netbooks at their school and it was named the Mini 10. As you can see it looks similar to the X100e but it sports a smaller display - hinted by the large bezel. The specs aren't mentioned but maybe we'll find out about them soon. Keep in mind that this isn't confirmed at the time since Lenovo hasn't announced a 10-inch netbook yet.

MAINGEAR SHIFT Desktop PC Packs Intel Core i7-980X CPU For a Price

Labels: , , , ,

MAINGEAR appears to be the second PC manufacturer to push out a desktop PC with the new Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU as well. We heard about the Alienware one last night and, of course, MAINGEAR had to do the same. This 3.33GHz 6-core CPU impressed everyone when the benchmarks were leaked out. Anyways, this desktop PC will be named the MAINGEAR SHIFT and is meant for everyday use, which is pretty absurd. You can pack four HDDs / SSDs inside of this monster along with a Bu-ray drive, and dual ATI Radeon HD 5970 4GB graphics cards. It'll start at $2,299 and that's without the Core i7-980X.

Labels: , , , , ,

A new netbook from Quanta has just been spotted at the FCC. It's the QW6 and it looks pretty good with its 10-inch display and a matte lid. It's got a glossy display and buttonless keyboard so we'll have to see how that works out. The good news is that it is packing an HDMI output and integrated graphics can't handle HD output. This could be hinting that it'll be packing some Ion 2 graphics goodness. Check out the FCC filing here.

If you purchase one now, the shipping date is said to be April 14th. Unfortunately, it doesn't have integrated 3G, but that model should be available later - but who knows when that will be.

I have no clue what the Dell M01M001 is but it has just got approved by the GCF. This handset is rocking quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE along with dual-band UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA connectivity so it's definitely a phone of some sort.

Verizon Getting the Samsung Reality U820 Sometime In April

Labels: , , ,

It looks like Verizon will be getting another Samsung handset that will supposedly be the Rogue U960's younger brother. The Samsung Reality U820 will be rocking a 3-inch touchscreen display with a 240 x 400 resolution, social integration, a 3.2MP camera with a flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth support, and the Touchwiz UI. The price and release date hasn't been mentioned yet but it should be available sometime in April and, I assume, will be cheaper than the Rogue. Unfortunately, you will need a data plan for this handset.
