GCF Approves the Huawei Ideos X3 Running "Gingerbread"

Labels: , , , , ,

Like the title says, it looks like the Huawei Ideos X3 has just been approved by the GCF. This phone officially features tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity along with UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA 2100MHz. We heard about this phone in February so it should feature a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n / Bluetooth 2.1 support, a 3.2MP AF camera, a front-facing camera, a 600MHz CPU, and a 9.9mm thin body. Interesting stuff, I wonder when it'll actually be available.

Labels: , , , , , ,

DigiTimes has just mentioned something pretty cool that's apparently coming from a supplier's mouth. The report says that Asus is looking to really undercut the netbooks that we're used to seeing right now. Apparently, the company plans to launch a $200 to $250 netbook running on Google's Android or, hopefully, Chrome OS. The notebook will reportedly be a 10 or 11-inch model and will be free subsidized on a carrier if you wan to sign a 6-month contract. Hmm, this might be something I'm interested in if it's a $200 netbook running Chrome OS.
