Asus Working On a Netbook With a Removable Phone

Labels: , ,

The Inquirer has just mentioned that Asus is working on a unique new netbook. This netbook apparently has a removable phone built by a company called Modu. You'll be able to share the SIM card and the data plan between the phone and the netbook if that's what you want to do. Let's see how this works out.


Vietnamese Website Claims To Get a New Plastic MacBook, Intel C2D 2.4GHz CPU and GeForce 320M GPU

Labels: , ,

A Vietnamese website has somehow managed to get their hands on a new and upcoming Apple MacBook refresh. Apparently, this new notebook will be packing an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz CPU, a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display, Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM, and the same old plastic unibody design.

The profiler (above) clearly states that this MacBook is the MacBook 7,1 which is newer than the current MacBook 6,1. Of course, this could be a fake but Vietnam has been getting a bunch of Apple scoops lately. Apparently, Apple could launch this update as soon as this week, so we'll have to wait and see. For now you enjoy the photo below and the video as well.

Update: According to Boy Genius, this notebook also features 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 250GB (5,400rpm) HDD, an iSight webcam, a slot-loading SuperDrive, two USB 2.0 ports, a mini DisplayPort, and WiFi 802.11n / Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR support.

LG (C710 / LU2300) Aloha Hits the FCC and Packing the Specs We Love; Could Hit AT&T

Labels: , , , , ,

Apparently, LG's Ally handset isn't the C710 Aloha handset that we heard about a couple of months ago. Other names for this handset is the LU2300 and we saw this back in March. This handset is the high-end Android phone that we've been looking out for - sadly the rumoured specs weren't spotted in the LG Ally. The LU2300 has just hit the FCC (here) and it's packing a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen display with a 480 x 800 resolution, a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard, a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, WCDMA bands II and V (850/1900MHz), WiFi / GPS support, and Android 2.1. This would be perfect for AT&T in the US and Rogers, Bell and Telus in Canada. There is no word on a price or release date right now.

Canada's Rogers Unofficially Confirms the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini and the Nokia N97 Mini

Labels: , , , , , ,

We know that Canada's Rogers is set to launch a bunch of new handsets in the near future. Two of the handsets that seem to now be confirmed is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini and the Nokia N97 Mini. Sadly, in the leak above it says the N87 Mini. Seeing how there is no such thing as an N87 Mini (or an N87 for that matter), it's still the N97 Mini - as you can barely see in the small photo.

T-Mobile USA To Launch the myTouch 3G Slide On June 16th For $149.99?

Labels: , , , , , ,

It looks like some new details has just leaked out regarding the T-Mobile [USA] myTouch 3G Slide. We already know that it's coming in June, but apparently, it'll be on the 16th of that month. The price is said to be $149.99 which seems a bit expensive for a phone like this. Considering all the other high-end smartphones out there, this one definitely seems overpriced so hopefully it drops in price.

Cherrypal Asia Netbooks Come In 7 and 10-Inch Sizes, Both Running Android 1.6

Labels: , , , ,

Cherrypal has just released and shown off their latest netbooks, both dubbed the Asia. This comes in two flavours, a 7-inch and a 10.1-inch one that are available for $99 and $150, respectively. Both of them are running Android 1.6 along with a "good enough" VIA 533MHz ARM9 CPU. The 10.1-inch model throws in an integrated 1.3MP webcam for safe measures, but who knows how well this works in the real world. Engadget did point out that they tried these both themselves and they were running quite slow so "you get what you pay for."


Asus Rolling Out a Bunch Of Laptops This Year; Bamboo-Covered UX3, NX90JQ, and More

Labels: , , , , , ,

Asus is planning to roll out a bunch of new notebooks this year. A couple of them we've seen before especially the one above. It's the bamboo-covered UX3 that features an Intel Core i5-450M CPU, Nvidia GeForce 310M graphics, 2GB of RAM, USB 3.0 ports, and a 500GB HDD. This will come in 13.3, 14.1, and 15.6-inch models. Maybe the best thing about this notebook is that it's 100% recyclable, which is a big deal for some people. This will sadly start at a price of just under $1,300.

Asus is also planning to release their NX90JQ notebook that's Bang & Olufsen inspired this July. The notebook itself will feature an Intel Core i7 quad-core 1.6GHz CPU, 8GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce 335M graphics, a 1TB HDD, USB 3.0 ports, dual touchpads, and ICEpower audio. This will be priced at around $2,670 so it's definitely not for the cheap.

Later in 2010, Asus will be releasing a couple more notebooks. This includes the 13.3-inch U35, 14.4-inch U45, and the 15.6-inch N53jh. These notebooks will be available for $1,190, $1,260, and $1,510, respectively.
