Labels: , , , , ,

Wow, just when you thought Sony was in the dumps, this has to leak. Yes folks, this appears to be the Sony PlayStation Phone that everyone has been waiting for. This gaming handheld reportedly features 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, a 3.7 to 4.1-inch display, a microSD card slot, and a new Qualcomm 1GHz MSM8655 CPU. The version of Android is unknown right now but Engadget has mentioned that it'll likely be Gingerbread (the next version). The shoulder buttons are there and so is the multitouch trackpad you see right in the middle.

The model you see above and below is reportedly in prototype form. You can look forward to this launching sometime in 2011 since they probably won't be ready to launch this in the next few weeks. This has potential! Check out the link below for a few more photos.

7-Inch Android-Based Barnes & Noble Nook Color Gets Unveiled, November 19th For $249

Labels: , , ,

Today, Barnes & Noble has just announced their latest e-book reader and it's the Nook Color. That's right, colour! This was unveiled at the company's "very special event" and sports a 7-inch touchscreen IPS display (1,024 x 600 resolution), the Android OS, and a mere 8-hour battery life. This is definitely a step down from the 10-day battery life of the e-ink Nook - Tech Land points out. This will be available and shipping on November 19th for $249.

Google Nexus Two To Hit Carphone Warehouse Before the End of the Year With Gingerbread

Labels: , , , , ,

Right after the day I was supposed to get my Rogers Samsung Captivate is word of a new flagship phone from Google. The manufacturer is unknown right now but City A.M. is reporting that Google plans to release the Nexus Two before the end of this year. Yes, Google did announce that they wouldn't launch a Nexus Two, but maybe they were just fibbing. This smartphone will be running on the next version of Android, Gingerbread, and should get just as much dev support as the Nexus One got. Specs are unknown right now, but hopefully we'll hear more in the next week. This smartphone will be hitting Carphone Warehouse before the end of the year if the rumour is true. It likely won't be coming from Samsung but it could be from HTC or even from Motorola.
