Nokia C6-01 Hitting Bell On March 30th, Price Still TBA

Labels: , , ,

We knew that Canada's Bell would be launching the Nokia C6-01 this month and it looks like it's now set for March 30th. The carrier will be releasing the handset, on March 30th but the price hasn't been mentioned at all yet. The phone itself features a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, an 8MP AF camera with a dual-LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a microSD card slot, a front-facing camera, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 3.0 support, and Symbian^3.

iPad 2 Gets Announced By Steve Jobs; Sports Dual-Core A5 CPU, Cameras, and Black / White Options

Labels: , , , ,

Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance introducing the iPad 2 today. After talking about how great and magical the iPad is they talked about all of the copcats launching tablets this year. Oh yeah, they've sold 100 million iPhones so far. Getting on to the good stuff, the iPad 2 features a new dual-core A5 CPU (probably supplied by Samsung again), a rear-facing camera, a front-facing camera, a gyroscope, an HDMI output (cable costs $39), and an 8.8mm thin body (thinner than the iPhone 4) that weighs just 1.3 pounds. Battery life is still 10 hours and that's great considering how thin the device is.

Of course, since it has dual cameras you're able to FaceTime whoever you want and you'll be able to launch Photo Booth as well so you can make them look as silly as you want them to. Display stays at 9.7-inches and has the same 1,024 x 768 resolution display. Basically, if you already have the first iPad, this might not be worth the upgrade unless you really want the dual cameras.

Thankfully, Jobs also mentioned that this will be available in black and white starting on day one. Prices will stay the same as the current model so that's amazing. The iPad 2 will be launching on March 11th in the US and it'll be launching in 26 more countries, including Canada, on March 25th. Models will be available on both AT&T and Verizon in the US so that's some pretty good news as well. Don't forget that the iPad 2 is bringing iOS 4.3 along with it. Anyways, I'd still rather get a WiFi-only Motorola XOOM.

Update: Engadget has just mentioned that the iPad 2 has just been spotted at the FCC. This includes all models: WiFi (A1395), GSM (A1396), and CDMA (A1397).


Gigabyte GN-TB100 Android Tablet Shown Off At CeBIT; 10.1-Inch IPS Display and Tegra 2

Labels: , , , , ,

At CeBIT Gigabyte announced something pretty surprising. They usually show off tablets with Microsoft's Windows on them but they've decided to show off a pretty good Android tablet at the event. Dubbed the GN-TB100, this tablet reportedly features a 10.1-inch IPS display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, a Tegra 2 CPU, 3G support, an HDMI output, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth support, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. Specs are pretty good so far and the tablet even comes equipped with a 5MP camera on the back and a front-facing 1.3MP one.

At their booth, it was unfortunately running just Android 2.2 but hopefully they update it before launch day. The company is planning to ship this one in July of this year so we'll see how things turn out until then. I wish them luck.

T-Mobile USA Could Launch the Storm 3 and Playbook; Playbook Rumoured For April 10 Launch

Labels: , , , , , ,

There's a rumour going around that two upcoming RIM devices will be headed to T-Mobile USA. The first one will be the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, which apparently "will arrive soon", while the other one will be the Storm 3, which could launch in Q3. Apparently, this rumour is coming from some BlackBerry reps at certain meetings. It sounds sketchy at this point so take it with a grain of salt.

Update: According to BGR, their tipsters have mentioned that this tablet could actually be launching on April 10th - not necessarily T-Mobile. Rumoured price tag for the 16GB model is said to be $499 so it definitely has a chance to be pretty popular.
