UMPCPortal is reporting that GigaByte has set pricing and availability(at least in Taiwan) details on the M528 MID. The M528 will debut at $750, which if you ask me is still way to high for the MID space.
Well, we've known all along that Microsoft Surface was headed for casinos as that was one of the early rollout targets. Looks like it has hit the strip, or at least a little off the strip.
I guess Asus likes things tiny. For those wishing the Asus Eee PC had some form of Inking capability I guess you could hook this up to your Eee.
HP is having a show all to itself in Berlin and Sierra seems to be having quite a time there and she’s already brought us news on HP’s TouchSmart All-in-One.
Yesterday I asked the question Where are the MIDs? Today via UMPCPortal we’re seeing that Intel is kinda, sorta talking about MIDs at Computex on their Chip Shots blog. I don’t think there is any real info there beyond the typical “thin...
OK, do not take this seriously. Instead take it as an opportunity to laugh for the day. (I sure needed it, giving the day I’m having.) One of the nagging complaints we’ve heard about the iPhone 3G is the lack of a front facing camera and video conferencing ...
In Part 2 of my Axiotron ModBook InkShow series, I take a look at how the ModBook performs as a Windows Vista based Tablet PC under Bootcamp and under VMWare's Fusion.
One little goodie I found in my HP Connecting Your World bag when I got to the event was an HP iPAQ 914 smartphone. I plan to give this phone a trial over the next few weeks to see how I like it.
I got a chance to check out the refreshed HP tx2500 in the product showcase today. The form factor and overall look has not changed at all, but the updated AMD Turion Ultra processor and ATI HD3200 graphics do create a noticeable difference.
As you all know, I'm at the HP Connect Your World event this week. While the internet access at the hotel won't allow me to upload video, I'm going to try to at least get you a photo review of the day's events to make it feel more like you're here.
It is proving to be quite a season of severe weather in many parts of the country so far this summer. We’ve been dealing with quite an early heat wave here in northwestern Virginia and although it is early, you know the only way it is going to break is after a se...
It has been quite a busy few weeks for mobile minded geeks these days. First the world was swamped with ultra-net-mini-sub-low-cost PCs from Computex.
I've been looking forward to reviewing Axiotron's ModBook ever since it was announced in January 2007. Several weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to finally receive a ModBook and experience an Apple Tablet for the very first time.
We certainly are not getting any younger around here, you know with the likes of Warner and all. So, it is definitely good to have some young blood, like Matt Faulkner, around us.
This looks very cool for those wanting a tilting Tablet desktop. Princeton’s PTB-TMW19B all-in-one looks like most all-in-one iMac clones we’re now seeing but it has what is described as a “Cintiq-like” digitzer with 1024 levels of pressure sens...
Just got word from Grahl Software that PDF Annotator 2 is now released. Here is a wrap-up on what is new in PDF Annotator 2. Be sure to watch our InkShow covering all the new features, too.
My favorite screen capture software just got a major revision. TechSmith has now unleashed SnagIt 9 and it has a range of new features.
Keep your eyes peeled and your ears cocked here at GBM for news on what HP is rolling out in Berlin today. Sierra's got some great video, audio, and photos in the can on HP's tx2500 (the successor to the tx2000 series), the Voodoo, and the HP TouchSmart coming.
This months forum member is a member that has been very active in our forums for some time now. Recently they have been very active on the Home Page of GottaBeMobile.com as well! So not only is there time being up in on the forums, there has also been a lo...
Apple rolled out the iPhone 3G yesterday, or at least rolled out the announcement of it, making sure they will dominate the tech news at least until the end of July after the new device reaches stores on July 11. There was quite a bit of disappointment that the de...
When HP acquired Voodoo, they acquired more than just a high-end gaming system manufacturer. Voodoo has some serious design skills, and they proved it with the appropriately named Voodoo Envy.
One of the most exciting announcements today for touch enthusiasts has been the new HP TouchSmart IQ504 and IQ506 all-in-one consumer PCs.
I'm in Berlin, jet-lagged after about 14 hours in the air with around 30 kids ages 9-13. I can't believe my flight was with a school group going to Paris.
Boy oh boy, people are tough! Just several days on the job and I did not expect the amount of comments that are already taking place regarding the differences between the three versions of Dragon Naturally Speaking.
Here is a wrap-up of Apple WWDC iPhone news that I followed via MacRumorsLive.com and live audio feed courtesy of iPhoneAlley.com Next iPhone: 3g, enterprise support, sell in more countries.
In part 2 of his look at the Photodon screen protectors, Truc Bui continues his great review of screen protectors. > > > - Truc Bui Summary: Pros: · Corner to corner coverage with silicone adhesive has a very tight fit.
The question earlier was is Lenovo readying an X200 Tablet PC? Looks like the answer is yes. Or at the least there are readying the name and branding changes.
Today, one way or the other, will be a big day for news, mostly dominated by Apple. Apple is set to open WWDC and the hype machine and the rumor mill have both been boiling hot.
This will be big news for Sling Player and iPhone and iPod Touch fans. Sling is announcing that they are working on a Sling Player for the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
I guess my eyes are failing me. Last night Engadget broke a post on some details of future Lenovo’s future X200 Thinkpads.
Congratulations to forum member tablet_envy on winning the $5200 HP HDX Dragon Entertainment Notebook system. His name was chosen randomly from all those who entered in our contest.
Ok, folks - this is it. All the other contests are over, except for this one. We are it - your last great hope of winning the HP HDX Dragon.
Heat is the enemy on many fronts for mobile devices. Just about anybody has felt the heat from a laptop or mobile phone that is running hot.
Asus isn’t just buying vowels. Looks like they are working on some interesting concept (read non-production at this point) multi-touch screen devices.
