Labels: , , , , ,

There's a new rumour going around that Digitimes is throwing out regarding Toshiba. Apparently, the company is working on a dual-screen 7-inch notebook / tablet that will be announced later this month. Rumour has it that this device will be called the Guidebook and I'm guessing it'll be similar to Asus' dual-screen tablet that we've heard and seen a bit about. No real pictures or specifications have been leaked out regarding the Toshiba Guidebook yet.

More Details On Samsung's Tablet Surface; Name Change, 1.2GHz CPU, and Froyo

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Earlier this month the first Samsung tablet photos leaked out and today some juicy details on this tablet has surfaced. Apparently, it won't be launching as the Galaxy Tab; it'll actually end up being called the Galaxy Tape which is kind of weird. Anyways, that's not important because some specs have surfaced as well. On board, this tablet will feature 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 4,000mAh battery, an ARM Cortex A8 1.2GHz CPU, a 7-inch Super AMOLED display, and Android 2.2 "Froyo" will be pre-installed which is excellent. Of course, before Samsung releases it they'll touch up the OS with their own Touchwiz UI. This is set to hit South Korea sometime this August and it's looking like this could be one of the better tablets out there, which is great news for all of us!

A new possible Nokia handset might have just leaked in a new video spotted online. This could be Nokia's first handset launching with the MeeGo OS out-of-the-box. It's being dubbed the N9 thus far and will clearly feature a touchscreen display along with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Project Natal Gets Official As the Kinect, Will Feature Video Chat Too

Labels: , , , , ,

Project Natal has just been made official as the Microsoft Kinect - for the Xbox 360 of course. As you can see in the picture above it's pretty darn shiny. Engadget has mentioned that this device will have a video chat app called Video Chat which isn't all that surprising. I'm not feeling this new name, but I guess we'll all have to live with it. There are still rumours of this device going for $150 which is definitely a bit much but we'll see if Microsoft decides to launch it for cheaper than that. The new Xbox 360 should be on the way as well...

Update: Gizmodo has just mentioned that Kinect will hit at least one country sometime in November.


Another Nokia X5 Gets Official In Singapore

Labels: , ,

Out of nowhere, a new Nokia handset has just been made official. It's being called the Nokia X5 and it looks very different from the Nokia X5 that got made official in China two months ago (that's here). The spec sheet wasn't announced but we do know that it'll feature Symbian S60 along with a 5MP camera and some social integration. It's pretty thick judging from the side picture (below) and it'll come in a bunch of colours including black, hot pink, bright blue, and yellow.
