  • Britain getting boatload of Huawei Android phones in 2010 and beyond

    If you thought the Chinese manufacturer Huawei was making a one hit wonder with the T-Mobile Pulse, think again as they've announced plans to continue Android development by releasing more devices featuring the quickly growing mobile OS. Within the next 6 months, Britain can expect to see "several more" Android handsets released, according to a company spokesman. While it's wrong to offer up such information and then stop there and leave you hanging, yearning for more, it's all anyone has ri...

    Live life in the fast line do yuh? Feeling bogged down by the seemingly slow 7,200RPM the higher end/faster 2.5" drives spin at? Western Digital would like to show you something. Their new WD S25 is a 10k, 2.5" spinning mobile speedster that will bring even greater agility to those who are always on the go. Blow past previous benchmarks with a sustained read/write times of 128MB/s and a 16MB buffer. Further bolstering this speed demon attitude is the 3.0 GBPS and 6.0 GBPS connectivity optio...
  • Apple’s Franken-touch EasyPay iPod’s swarm in to obliterate WindowsCE machines.

    Playing with fire and behind enemy lines are two ways to objectify Apple's dependence on WindowsCE based mobile POS stations up until this point. Said machines are old, bulky, and downright pieces of digital *insert expletive here*. Apple who loves to keep it close to home has been working for some time now on retrofitting 3G iPod Touches running OS 3.0 with various pieces of accessory add-ons in able to move towards a mobile POS system that does away with the antiquated WindowsCE junk. Loo...
  • Toshiba promoting laptop trade-in program. Up to £150 back.

    Getting a new piece of gadgetry is always exciting (cooooome ooooon Droid) except for the whole loss of money/payment thing. Toshiba UK would like you to know that they're feeling rather gifty. In order to aid your decision in dropping on a new laptop, (and of course rake in some new revenue on your behalf) Toshiba is running a laptop trade-in program offering up to £150 back on your old decrepit machine to be used towards a new, gleaming mobile machine. Some may criticize that the laptops ...
  • Radeon HD 5870 X2 is a massive, massive card

    As sad as it is, I don't have a pimped out gaming PC. I've lusted for one for years. I don't have a preference as to pre-built or custom though I know custom is the way to go for us picky folks. Still, other things keep getting in the way. In the world of gaming PC's, the gamers #1 concern is a big burly graphics card. One that will move pixel based mountains and pwn Crisis framerates like a champ. Once such card that could be capable of such has so graciously allowed itself to be snapped ...
  • Nvidia Fermi to bring *amazing* graphical power.

    Posted October 30th, 2009 at 10:23 am
    **Update: As RedSpectacle pointed out below, they are not renders. I updated my original post as it is/was slightly confusing. Hopefully some real rendered pics surface in the near term. Nvidia's upcoming "Fermi" chipset set to debut on the 300 series desktop graphics will usher in a new era of photo-realistic gaming. I'm not even kidding. Packing the visual punch comes by way of 512 cores which make previous challenges such as facial hair, skin glare, and ray-traced lighting are no match...
  • Pre-paid mobile phone manufacturers pushing bill to outlaw installing software on handsets
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 5:32 am
    How about a nice dose of stupidity and ridiculousness for this fine Tuesday morning? If you haven't heard of the "Wireless Prepaid Access Device Enforcement Act of 2009, you may want to pay attention as it is really an assault against consumer freedoms. You all have seen at some point Trac Phone's of some sort or brand sitting in end caps across various retail outlets in various locations. Some people purchase these phones and install their own modified firmware on the devices so they can use...
  • Light show coming to T-Mobile via Sony Equinox
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 9:04 pm
    While I generally try to avoid phones with overly gimmicky features or slogans, the Sony Equinox is rather neat little clamshell phone. Not a smartphone by any means, the Equinox sings a different tune. A tune of affordability and sophistication. Specs include a 2.2 inch QVGA internal display, GPS, Stereo Bluetooth, FM Radio, YouTube support, and a 3.2 mp shooter. Average sounding specs aside, the real marketing muscle behind this particular handset revolves around the way the external scree...
  • Sony Xperia X3 X10 “Infinity” coming out party goes down November 3rd.
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 8:31 pm
    The Sony Xperia X3 is so far my favorite device leading into the end of the year. While the X1 and X2 were pretty sweet devices, the fact that it was running WinMo pretty much killed it for me. However, with Android and a tweaked UI dubbed "Rachel" coming on the X3, this latest Sony device has got my attention front and center. Hmm, now about that X3 moniker, well, not even a couple a days ago, the X3 became the X10. Why skip so many numbers? No idea. Not exactly sure what kool-aid Sony is...
  • Quad-core Macbook Pro’s coming soon, very soon?
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 6:23 am
    Oh the geek inside of me is giddy. News of quad-core mac's are starting to trickle forth thanks to two new Macbook Pro model numbers referenced in the latest Snow Leopard 10.6.2 build seeded to devs. Such an update isn't too far from reality as the last update bestowed upon these mobile workhorses was way back in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference. An update must be close if the Macbook Pro's are to remain near the top of the heap. All fingers point towards Intel Clarksfield chips b...
  • What is this mysterious Windows branded laptop on 30 Rock?
    by Mike
    Posted October 24th, 2009 at 9:06 pm
    Eagle eyes by Chris from MobileWhack caught a seemingly average laptop being used on the show 30 Rock. On closer inspection however we can see what appears to be a glowing Windows logo. Microsoft doesn't make hardware in regards to actual computers. So what is it? A simple one-off made for the show or some slick skin/sticker? Most likely. I've noticed myself that Macs, particularly Macbook Pro's are becoming increasingly more common in TV commercials. Is Microsoft following Apple's lead...
  • International Telecommunication Union agrees on universal cellphone charger.

    Posted October 24th, 2009 at 7:25 pm
    Stroll into any electronics store looking for a cellphone charger and you'll walk into a pit of never ending cases full of chargers for countless phones. Which one fits your phone? Well, if you we were smart (or lucky) enough to get a phone that makes use of mini or micro USB, pat yourself on the back. You're already there. But if you're stuck with a phone that uses one of countless proprietary chargers, you no doubt know the hassles that manifest when trying to buy a simple charger. A re...
