Labels: , , , ,

It looks like the amazing DROID Incredible won't be hitting folks in the UK. They already have the HTC Desire, so it's not like they're missing out on that much. The Incredible does have an 8MP camera which is better than the Desire's 5MP snapper, but I'm sure they'll be getting something just as powerful before the end of the year - and it'll be free on contract.

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Asus Eee PC 1201PN netbook is one of the first netbooks to launch with the next-gen Nvidia Ion graphics, but it looks like it won't be sporting the Optimus technology that Nvidia has to offer.
