Nintendo attempts to build-upon the success of the DS family of portable consoles with the new 3DS which adds glasses-free 3D to the mix. The 3DS adds a little bulk when compared to the DS to make room for the new 3D cameras and the upper stereoscopic 3D display. If playing in three-dimensions is not your thing a built-in 3D depth slider allows you to adjust the intensity of the effect. Other nota
Apple’s legendary unibody metal design remains intact on the 2011 version of the 17-inch MacBook Pro, but the hardware inside has changed. The largest notebook in Apple’s MacBook Pro line now sports a 2.2GHz second-generation Intel Core i7 processor and AMD’s brawny Radeon HD 6750M graphics processor with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM. The net result: It’s fast, both around the desktop and in games, which it h
The tablet market is all about size these days. Apple defined the market with its 9.7-inch tablet, but outside of HP, everyone else has chosen to size their tablets differently. Touch devices of all sizes have cropped up, ranging from 5 inches to 10.1 inches in diagonal screen size. Lately, however, the focus has been on larger, more iPad-like devices, usually 8.9 inches to 10.1 inches in size, an
LG’s G-Slate has a lot going for it, but 3D ain’t one of them. Though it’s tech specs are decent and its 8.9-inch size is interesting, but after spending some time with the new tablet, I don’t see the value in its most talked about feature: the 3D. Unlike its LG Revolution (LG Thrill 3D on AT&T) handset, which has a glasses-free 3D screen and 3D camera, the G-Slate’s implementation of 3D is bewild
T-Mobile (soon to be AT&T) and LG have a great relationship. Together, the companies are working together on the G-Slate tablet and a new premium Android phone, the T-Mobile G2x. I got my hands on the G2x yesterday afternoon and it has some impressive features. Most notably, the ability to instantly stream HDMI content (via its Mini HDMI port). This feature is called HDMI Mirroring. When connected
Verizon’s claim of 10 launch devices for its 4G LTE network has been slow to materialize, but the handsets are on their way. The HTC ThunderBolt has hit shelves and the LG Revolution should be coming soon. Why the delay? Well, 4G has been a hassle to integrate, sources tell me; but the network has launched and is waiting to be tested.http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/lg-revolution-impressions-
Nokia may have signed a deal with Microsoft, but it isn’t ready to abandon Symbian just yet. While it readies its first batch of Windows Phones, the Finnish handset maker is giving Symbian one more shot in the U.S. market. Together with T-Mobile, a wireless carrier that will similarly cede itself to AT&T in the year ahead, it has released the C7 under a friendly new name the “T-Mobile Astound.” An
At the Microsoft booth at CES, representatives from LaCie showed us the company's new 5big Backup Server, which stores data for up to 35 computers and can stream data to across the Net, even to mobile phones.
At CES last week, Fulton Innovations showed off a new technology it's calling "eCoupled intelligent wireless power." The technology allows objects of all kinds to be powered wirelessly and without clunky cases and dongles. Mobile phones, a small pot, and a cereal box that lights up were some of the demonstrations we were shown at the show.
