HTC EVO 4G Hitting Sprint On June 4th For $199.99 On Contract

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Sprint has finally announced that they'll be releasing the HTC EVO 4G on June 4th. The handset will be priced at $199.99 on a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate and possibly just $450 contract-free. We know that the iPhone will have video-calling and it's good that the EVO 4G will have it as well. You'll be able to two-way video call with this handset over Sprint's 3G and 4G network. WiMAX (4G) will reportedly cost you an extra $10 monthly in case you're interested in that - and you should be if you're getting the phone because it's mandatory. If you're rich, you can use this handset as a hotspot for up to eight devices, but that'll cost you an extra $30 every month.

Keep in mind that the original DROID's model number was the A855.

Vietnamese Site Buys a Next-Gen iPhone Prototype, Tear It Down To Reveal A4 Chip and 16GB of Storage -- With Video!

Labels: , , ,

Somewhere in Vietnam has managed to snag themselves the next-generation iPhone - similar to Gizmodo - and they reportedly paid around $4,000 for it. Whatever legal issues they might have to deal with is all up to them but they did us a favour. There's a video of it below but you don't need to watch it right now. This model appears to be a newer prototype than the one that Gizmodo got seeing how the two screws at the bottom of the iPhone seem to be missing which, thankfully, gives it a cleaner look. This iPhone is a 16GB model and it's looking pretty official.

Update: According to Engadget, the site actually tore down the iPhone and it revealed two important things. The first thing is that there's a black "N90" text on the white sticker which is exactly what the rumoured internal codename for the next iPhone is! The other piece of great - and expected news - is that the teardown also revealed that the chip inside of the next iPhone is Apple's own A4 chip, which is similar to the chip in the iPad.

Lenovo Reportedly Working On Notebook With 3D Functionalities

Labels: , , ,

There aren't much details yet, but Digitimes is hearing that Lenovo is expected to launch a notebook with 3D capabilities in Q3 of this year. Of course, you'll need to use polarized (3D) glasses for the effect. However, Lenovo looks like they won't be using Nvidia's GeForce 3D Vision GPUs, instead they're looking to use Winstron's own technology. The picture above shows Acer's 3D notebook using Winstron's technology so just try to imagine the Lenovo logo on there.

Dell Unveils the Studio XPS 7100 Desktop PC, Packing New AMD Phenom II X6 CPU Options

Labels: , , ,

AMD has just announced their latest desktop processors and Dell appears to be first in line with their Studio XPS 7100. The base model goes for $699, but it's sporting integrated graphics which don't belong in desktop PCs. The $1,199 is definitely more favourable. It packs the new AMD Phenom II X6 1050T CPU (Engadget points out that this is comparable to the Core i5-760 CPU), ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics, and 6GB of RAM.

The even more powerful Phenom II X6 1090T will be accompanied by the ATI HD 5970 GPU and that'll be found in the Studio XPS 8100. This one won't be available until the Summer, so it's not that long of a wait.
