Future Shop Says Rogers' BlackBerry Torch (9800) Will Be Launching On September 15th

Labels: , , , , , ,

11 days ago we heard that Rogers would be launching the BlackBerry Torch (9800) on September 15th and that rumour has just got some wheels. Thanks to the internal screenshot from Future Shop above, it also says that the smartphone will be launching on the 15th. Bell's launch is still unknown and Telus is rumoured to be launching it on September 16th, one day after Rogers. Of course, the promo price for the Rogers BlackBerry Torch won't be $999.99 like it says.

Labels: , , , , , ,

If you're interested in the Asus NX90Jq notebook then you better have quite a bit of money lying around. This notebook - in case you somehow forgot - was being showcased at CES earlier this year and it sports an 18.4-inch display, dual-touchpads, B&O ICEpower speakers, an Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GT 334M graphics, and up to 1,280GB of HDD storage. This Bang & Olufsen designed notebook is now available online (here) for right around $2,500. I hope you have the money.


Possible HTC Smart2 Render Leaks Out, HTC Speedy To Hit Sprint?

Labels: , , , , , ,

A render of the successor to the HTC Smart has just leaked out and that's supposedly what you see above. This is said to be the HTC Smart2 and will be running Qualcomm's Brew OS. It could be a fake but we'll just have to wait and see what happens. Another handset is being tossed around and it's one we've heard of before. The HTC Speedy could be planning to hit Sprint sometime in the future, but we don't know when. This smartphone is said to sport a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 5MP camera with a flash, 386MB of RAM, an 800MHz CPU, and Android 2.2 "Froyo". It won't exactly be the speediest handset out there with dual-core CPUs coming to phones near you.

Labels: , , , ,

The Nokia N8 is already available in a few places but it looks like Vodafone in the UK will be getting it in the future as well. This smartphone is running the Symbian^3 OS and will be available in both black and green colours, hopefully, sometime next month. The ugly green colour will be exclusively to the carrier, but who wants to get it anyway? It's "Coming Soon" if you're interested.

Toshiba's Android Tablet To Be Called the Folio 100, Specs Revealed and Showing Up At IFA

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

A couple of days ago we first got a glimpse of what the Toshiba Android tablet would look like and the same website, Notebook Italia, has reportedly gotten word of some specs and even a name. Apparently, the tablet that will be getting unveiled will be called the Toshiba Folio 100, which sounds kind of awkward and foreign. The tablet is said to feature a 10.1-inch multitouch display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, a Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, 16GB of internal storage, an SDHC card slot, 3G / WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth support, Adobe Flash support, the Opera Mobile web browser, a PDF reader, a 7-hour battery life, and Android 2.2 "Froyo". These are some pretty great specs so hopefully everything gets ironed before the big unveil at IFA. Hopefully it launches this year.

Camangi Webstation II Tablet Making Its Debut At IFA, Specs Revealed

Labels: , , , , , ,

Late last year Camangi (a not-so well known company) released their Android-based Webstation tablet (above). The specs were decent during the times where everyone was trying to rush tablets onto the market ahead of the Apple iPad. The same company will be bringing its successor, the Webstation II, to IFA this year. The next iteration of this tablet will reportedly feature a 1,024 x 600 capacitive multitouch display, a 1GHz Samsung S5PV210 CPU, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, 2GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (8GB SD card in the box), an HDMI mini output, 3G / WiFi / Bluetooth support, a 5MP front-facing camera, GPS, and Android 2.2. The specs definitely seem pretty good and if that front-facing camera is true it could be great for a video conferencing device. I don't think there's a product out there with a 5MP front-facing camera, unless I'm mistaken. We'll see it at IFA.
