So much for that Telus source code price tag because there's a new inventory leak today. Apparently, Telus plans to release the HTC Desire for just $79.99 on a 3-year contract, which is an amazing deal. The Desire sports a 3.7-inch Sony Super LCD display, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 5MP AF camera, and Android 2.1 with the Sense UI. Mobile Syrup is also hearing that the Desire will be available for $449.99 contract-free.

Canada Getting the iPhone 4 On July 30th, Along With a Bunch Of Other Countries

Labels: , , , , , , ,

Apple held a press conference a couple of hours ago and they announced a bunch of things. They said that they've sold 3 million iPhone 4's in three weeks and mentioned that it's probably the best product they've ever come with - and I agree. They announced that they're going to give away free bumpers for people who want them if you sign up on their site. All that is nice and dandy, but they announced something even better.

The biggest news of all is when they flashed the picture above on their screen. Canada along with the rest of the countries listed will be getting the iPhone 4 on July 30th! I don't know if the white model will be available at launch, seeing how there'll be "limited quantities" so we'll just have to wait and see.

Labels: , , , , ,

Canada may be getting another version of the HTC Hero, thanks to MTS. On Much Music, the device above was spotted and it's the Sprint HTC Hero that could make its way to Canada sometime in the future. Of course, the handset is pretty outdated at this point but if they slap Android 2.1 on it then it should do for most people.

Acer has unveiled a new S1 Series of LCD monitors today and they're coming in at anywhere between 18.5 and 23-inch models.

Apple's Next Mac Pro Desktop To Have USB 3.0 and Firewire 1600 or 3200 Support?

Labels: , , , , , , ,

There's a rumour going around that Apple will be updating their Mac Pro desktop at the end of this Summer. The new Mac Pro will have a brand new CPU inside of it, of course, but it'll also come equipped with USB 3.0 support along with FireWire 1600 or 3200. This update will be just in time for back-to-school sales, so you can expect an announcement in the next month or two.

Update: According to Slash Gear, the iMac will be updated as well. This update will be taking place about a month later than the Mac Pro's and neither refresh will have Light Peak technology or possible Blu-ray drives. You can also expect the Mac Pro to sport 6-core Intel Core i7 CPUs.
