HP Envy 14, Envy 17, and Pavilion dm4 Notebooks Confirmed? Launching Soon?

Labels: , , , ,

Way back in December there was a leak that stated that HP was prepping an Envy 14 and an Envy 17 and now we're seeing some more documents that confirm that HP is indeed working on these two new models. Unfortunately, the document never mentioned any specs or a release date, but it'll likely launch with Core i5 / i7 options. That's not all though, they're also reportedly working on a Pavilion dm4. This notebook will reportedly be packing a 14-inch display, an optical drive, Intel / AMD CPU options, switchable graphics, and a price somewhere in the range of $650 to $850.

Google TV Set-Top Box Won't Replace Your Current One, Will Feature WiFi, Android, and Chrome

Labels: , , , , , ,

We heard rumours about a bunch of companies coming together to make some sort of Google TV project. Apparently, this won't replace your current set-top box but it's something that will accompany it instead. Of course, this Google TV box will have things like an HDMI output and WiFi / Ethernet so that you can get on to Youtube, etc. You'll reportedly be able to browse the web with Google's own Chrome browser on its Android OS (weird). This is rumoured to be launching for $299 whenever they're ready along with a $10 to $15 monthly fee. Apple TV vs Google TV, will both of them be the future?

Apple Starting To Charge Customers' Credit Cards For the iPad

Labels: , , , ,

For those of you who decided to pre-order your iPad you may have noticed that Apple may have charged your credit cards already. This means that shipments are set to start fairly soon. If you haven't been billed yet, no worries, you can't possibly be the only one.

Apple Looking For Someone With Expert Knowledge Of LTE (4G) For a Future iPhone

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

This shouldn't be a surprise. A new Apple job listing states that they're looking for someone with "expert knowledge of... WCDMA / UMTS, HSPA, HSPA+, LTE etc" for a future iPhone. Of course, LTE is the 4G network that we know AT&T, Verizon, and even MetroPCS will be using so it shouldn't be a surpsise to anyone. Unfortunately, it's not confirmed if LTE will be in the next iPhone and I'm going to say that it won't be because AT&T hasn't deployed theirs yet.

China Unicom To Sell Android Phones Without Google Search, Obviously

Labels: , , , , , , ,

This shouldn't be surprising, but China Unicom will be selling Android phones in the future and the built-in search engine won't be Google. If you've been paying attention, Google and China aren't getting along at all. Motorola will reportedly be using Bing (via Google Blogoscoped), but we don't know what other search engines will be on-board.

Labels: , , , , ,

We don't know when North America (or more specifically the US) will be getting the Android 2.1 update for the HTC Hero, but now we know when Taiwan will be. April 26th is the date, so they're pretty lucky. This update will, of course, feature the Sense UI over top of Android and it'll be a great update for those of you who haven't done it yourselves yet.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The Qualcomm Gobi chipset is a great thing to have and it's about to get even better. At CTIA, Qualcomm announced that the Gobi chipset of the future, the MDM9600, will support EV-DO Rev. A, Rev. B, HSPA+ (up to 28Mbps), dual-carrier HSPA+ (up to 42Mbps), and LTE (up to a whopping 100Mbps). This chipset will be hitting laptops as well as USB modems, e-book readers, and gaming devices. Hmm, maybe an iPad of the future? We'll just have to see what happens.

T-Mobile USA Sells Out Of the HTC HD2 In Four Hours

Labels: , , ,

Sadly, T-Mobile USA didn't stock enough HTC HD2's to make everyone happy. The latest report states that all T-Mobile locations sold out of the smartphone in under 4 hours, which is pretty impressive. Considering that every store only had a limited amount of them, it's no surprise really. Looks like a lot of people will spend a lot more time waiting for their very own HD2.

Update: According to Electronista, the current estimate is that the HD2 sold only around ,000 units in the first day even though they sold out rather quickly. The smartphone is "surprisingly" popular and clearly T-Mobile didn't get as many HD2's as they should have.

Mad Catz Eclipse Lifetouch Keyboard Passes the FCC, Will Start Shipping This Spring

Labels: ,

This is a pretty interesting keyboard from Mad Catz and it has just passed the FCC which means that it's on track to possibly launch this Spring (like anytime now). It's the Eclipse Lifetouch and it was being showcased at CES. The interesting part is that it has an LCD touchscreen on the right side that has a total of three different modes of buttons: one for a numeric keypad, one for a media mode, and the other is the MyEclipse customizable mode. It's a pretty interesting keyboard, but I still want the Logitech Wave. Anyways, the wired model will be launching for $99, while the wireless version should cost $129. Check out the FCC filing here and there's a short video below.

AT&T-Bound Pantech Pursuit and Link Get Scoped Out At CTIA

Labels: , , , ,

Last week we heard about two upcoming AT&T phones, the Pantech Pursuit and the Link. Thankfully, Unwired View got their hands on both of these phones. The Pantech Pursuit will be sporting a 2.8-inch touchscreen display along with a slide-out (4-row) QWERTY keyboard. It'll be available in two different colours, blue and green, just to let you know. It packs a microSD card slot, a 2MP camera with video recording capabilities, and 3G / aGPS support. It'll be available in Q2 of this year and Unwired View feels that this will be popular among the teens. They mentioned that it works surprisingly well and the touchscreen was more responsive than they thought it would be.

The Pantech Link has the BlackBerry-like styling to it with a small 2.4-inch display along with a QWERTY keypad. This smartphone will have 3G connectivity, a microSD card slot, aGPS support, a 1.3MP camera, Stereo Bluetooth, and a 10mm thin body. This handset will also be available in Q2 of this year. You can check out the correct link below for more photos and even videos of the Pantech Link in action.
