Verizon's iPhone To Have 4G LTE Connectivity? Launching In Very Early 2011?

Labels: , , , , , ,

The iPhone on Verizon rumour has struck again. Latest rumour has it that said iPhone will be running on the carrier's LTE (4G) network. Apparently, this launch will be quite soon because the rumour also states that this could launch right after Christmas so it could mean a very early 2011 launch - possibly before the iPad announcement which should be in late January. The rumour goes on to mention that Verizon has already been testing 4G iPhone's since last week. Take this with a grain of salt because we all know how out of hand Apple's rumours tend to be. If it's true then Android's growth may be slowed down just a bit.

Apple Working On An iPad That's "Almost Half the Size of the Current Model", 7-Inches Perhaps?

Labels: , , , , ,

Coming from Reuters is word on Apple making a smaller iPad. Apparently, this model is "almost half the size of the current model" so it could be something with a 5 to 7-inch display. This tablet should be introduced the same time the new 9.7-inch model would be announced so we can expect it in late January. When Steve Jobs said that 7-inch tablets were "dead on arrival" it might be because his company was planning on making one too, which is what I was assuming right off the bat.

Update: The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a 7-inch display and it's half the size of the current iPad so a 7-inch iPad is definitely a possibility.

Motorola CLIQ 2 Could Still Hit the Market, We Just Don't Know When

Labels: , , , ,

The latest rumour going around is that Motorola is still working on an Android-based and MOTOBLUR-packing CLIQ 2. This handset was rumoured to be launching on November 1st but that clearly didn't happen. The company has just filed for the CLIQ 2 name, so it's clear that they're working on it. However, when this does hit the market expect it to be a mid-end device because the first CLIQ was set for teenagers. Rumoured specs include a touchscreen display, a QWERTY keyboard, 3G support / hotspot functionalities, WiFi with support for WiFi calls, and Android 2.2.


StreamTV's eLocity A7 Android 2.2 Based Tablet Now Shipping With Tegra 2

Labels: , , , , , , ,

StreamTV's eLocity A7 tablet has been up for pre-order for a while now and it looks like they're now shipping to those who wanted to take a risk. Beneath its 7-inch WVGA multitouch display, there's a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra T20 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, USB / HDMI ports, a 1.3MP front-facing webcam, WiFi / Bluetooth support, and Android 2.2. On paper it definitely seems worth especially since it's going for just $370. The price is definitely right but I'd advise you to check out some reviews first. They should be rolling in soon.

Update: There's no word on if this has access to the Android Market.

Labels: ,

LG has just announced their latest monitor and it's going by the E2290V moniker. The display itself is just 7.3mm and that's because the company decided to put all of the goodies into the glossy base that you see in the above photo. I think it's worth it, but that really just depends on you. Specs include a 21.5-inch LED-backlit display, a 2ms response time, 250 nits of brightness, analog / digital / HDMI inputs, and a 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. This monitor will be available later this month for €329 ($435 USD).
