Labels: , , , , ,

RIM has just announced something extremely great for future BlackBerry Playbook owners and Android app developers. The Playbook will officially support "over 25,000 BlackBerry Java apps and more than 200,000 Android apps." That's great news for everyone because it seems like nowadays it's all about the apps. The bad news is that the Playbook won't be able to run Android apps initially at launch and they'll be demoing the ability to run Android apps at BlackBerry World on May 3 to 5 in Orlando.

Labels: , , , , , ,

MSI has announced two new products, with AMD's new Fusion technology, that it's bringing to the US. The one above is the AE2050 which is an all-in-one PC, and the one below is the CR650 notebook. First off, we'll talk about the AE2050 which sports the E-350 1.6GH APU along with a 20-inch multitouch display, Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 500GB HDD, a webcam, and even a USB 3.0 port. This isn't intended to be a powerhouse because it's supposed to be budget-friendly. This one starts at $680 and you can check this one out on MSI.

The notebook that they unveiled is the CR650 which actually sports a 15.6-inch display along with the same APU. This one also features 3GB of RAM, a 320GB HDD, and a battery life that should last you 6 hours. Check this one out on MSI where it starts at just $499.99.

ZTE Unveils 4.3-inch Smartphone and 10-inch "Honeycomb" Tablet With LTE At CTIA

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

MSI has unveiled two new products that they intend to launch in the future. The one above is a 4.3-inch smartphone while the one below is their upcoming LTE (4G) tablet, of course, both are running Android. First, the one above was just a mockup and it's said to feature a 4.3-inch display, a VGA front-facing camera, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 1,350mAh battery, and Android 2.3 "Gingerbread". Those are some pretty good specs so let's hope they can deliver a US launch.

The other device, like I said, is a tablet and it's going to be running Android "Honeycomb" whenever it actually does hit the market. This one reportedly features a 10-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 resolution, a 1.2GHz CPU, dual cameras, LTE (4G) connectivity, and a 6,800mAh battery. I wonder if this one will be hitting Verizon later this year. Unfortunately, launches look like they'll be in the second half of the year.
