Labels: , , , ,

Lumigon has just announced that they'll be unveiled their first smartphone and it'll be the T1. Sadly, the company has mentioned that they'll be announcing this smartphone on October 20th so it's still quite far away. This handset should be sporting an HDMI output along with some version of Android (hopefully 2.2 or 3.0). Check out Lumigon's Facebook page if you have some free time.

GSM Arena has spotted a new phone on the Ovi Store's website, the Nokia 5250. This handset is reportedly going to sport Symbian S60 5th Edition and likely a 3-inch touchscreen nHD display (hopefully not resistive). The specs aren't mentioned anywhere on Nokia's website so we'll have to wait around for Nokia to announce this.

Update: According to Fone Arena, some specs for the Nokia 5250 have actually been revealed thanks to the UAProfile. "Confirmed specs" include: a 360 x 640 resolution touchscreen display, GSM / GPRS / EDGE connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0 support, 2 softkeys, and Symbian S60 5th Edition.

Update: Engadget has just pointed out that the Nokia 5250 will be replacing the 5230 smartphone that T-Mobile has available right now as the Nuron. There's another picture of the upcoming phone below.

Labels: , , , , , ,

Okay, so we already know that the HTC Desire will be hitting Telus in Canada but the pricing still hasn't been made official. We heard that it will cost $79.99 on a 3-year contract, which is definitely great news but how about the contract-free price? Well, this new leak from Walmart shows that the Desire will be available from them for $448.83 contract-free. This means that Telus may actually have it available for $449 contract-free - since Walmart likes to take a bit off the actual price.

Apple Updates iMac and Mac Pro, Also Releases 27-Inch LED Cinema Display, Magic Trackpad, and AA Charger

Labels: , , , , , , ,

The rumour that we heard yesterday turned out to be true, Apple has refreshed a bunch of their products today. This includes the iMac and the Mac Pro; they've also released a 27-inch LED Cinema Display, a Magic Trackpad, and even a AA charger (yes, a AA charger). First up is the iMac which is now available in the same sizes, a 21.5 and a 27-inch model. Now you can choose Intel Core 2010 CPUs, which is a big plus. For $1,199 you get the 21.5-inch model with a 3.06GHz Core i3 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and ATI Radeon HD 4670 graphics. The cheapest 27-inch model will cost you $1,699 and you'll get a Core i3 3.2GHz CPU with ATI Radeon HD 5670 graphics. Other options include Core i5 / i7 CPUs, optional SSD storage, and up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM. All of the models sport FireWire 800, USB 2.0 ports (no 3.0 yet), WiFi 802.11n support, and a slot-loading DVD burner. Anyways, check them all out on Apple's site.

Next up is the new Mac Pro desktop. The cheapest model will now cost you $2,499 and features a 2.8GHz quad-core CPU. Next up is the 2.4GHz eight-core model which is going for $3,499. But if you want to go all out, you can now get the "fastest Mac ever" with an Intel Xeon CPU which sports 12-cores and it'll cost you $4,999. It's up on Apple's site.

Apple has released a new monitor, the 27-inch LED Cinema Display. This monitor is actually a pretty sweet deal since it's cheaper than Dell's U2711 monitor (by $100). The 27-inch Apple IPS monitor is now available for $999 and it's gorgeous. It sports a 16:9 aspect ratio, a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, 375 nits of brightness, a 1,000:1 contrast ratio, a 12ms response time, an integrated iSight webcam, a 3-port powered USB hub, and a MagSafe connector. Like I said, it'll cost you $999 so check it out here. You'll have to wait until September for this one though.

Update: MacNN has pointed out that the 24-inch LED Cinema Display is now $799 (down from $899) since the new and larger 27-inch model was introduced this morning. Check it out on Apple here.

We've heard about this one a bit and Apple has announced it as the Magic Trackpad. Everything from Appls seems to be magical these days, doesn't it? It really doesn't add any new functionalities, it's just a giant multitouch trackpad. I'd rather use a mouse to be honest. If you need to know more, you know where to go (Apple's site).

Apple didn't stop there though, they've unveiled another magical product. This is the AA battery charger which will cost you $29 and will, thankfully, ship with six AA batteries. You'll be able to use these AA batteries in the Magic Trackpad and even the Magic Mouse, of course. It has a 10-year lifetime and is now shipping in 2 - 4 business days. Of course, Apple is mentioning that the charger is amazing since it sucks up less power than every other charger on the market. Anyways, it's on Apple's site here.

Telus' Contract-Free iPhone 4 To Cost $649 and $749?

Labels: , , ,

Telus will be getting the iPhone 4 on Friday, June 30th and that shouldn't be surprising to you. What should be surprising is the Telus leak that Mobile Syrup picked up. Apparently, the 16GB model will cost $649 contract-free while the 32GB model will cost $749 contract-free. This is pretty close to the unlocked prices of the iPhone 4 that we just heard ($659 for 16GB and $779 for 32GB). It's only three days away folks.

StarCraft II Hits the Shelves, the Best RTS Is Back!

Labels: ,

After years and years of nerds all around the world waiting for it, it's now available! StarCraft II is now available and I've already got mine pre-ordered. Your PC should be able to handle the game and WSJ reported two weeks ago that it may have cost Blizzard around 100 million to make this game. All that doesn't really matter, but you should know that one of the real-time strategy games of all time is back on the shelf and will be for the next couple of years to come! I'm so excited (if you couldn't already figure that out)!!
