PalmOne's Newest Model?

Today an image of an upcoming Tungsten handheld was posted (and then removed, apparently) on Amazon.com. As you can see, it appears to be a slider-less model, with a 320x480 display. Rumors are also pointing to a release as early as next Tuesday. October has traditionally been a month for new handheld announcements by palmOne, so I'm inclined to believe this news. There's no word as to whether it's the successor to the Tungsten E (most likely) or if it will be billed as the Tungsten T5. I'm still holding on to see how long my M515 lasts, but if it did break, I'd probably jump for one of these, considering I don't like slider designs.

TiVo $49.99 After Rebate Circuit CityNo, I am not trying to get you to set the old Bob Barker game show to Season Pass! This is a message for those of you out there who STILL have yet to pick up a DVR because of the price. Although many cable companies are starting to release combo DVR/Cable Tuners, just about anyone will tell you that they aren't as good as TiVo. Now just about anyone can get one, because they are just $49.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate from Circuit City. I know, mail-in rebates suck - but in this case I think it may be worth it. I mean, who wouldn't want to hit instant replay whenever one of Barker's Beauties hits the screen?

  • Supports multiple music and image formats: MP3, OGG Vorbis, WMA, ASF, JPG, BMP
  • 16 hours of battery life per charge (takes 3 hours to charge)

Nokia 6670

In October, Nokia is looking to launch the all new 6670 cell phone, which includes a 1 Meg camera, tri-band, Bluetooth, and a high resolution screen sporting 65K colors. The camera also features a 4x digital zoom and photo-editing capabilities like crop, frame, and text-adding. Looks like we'll finally be able to print those phone-photos we take in a respectable 4x6 size. In a sign of growing trends towards convergence, the camera will also allow video-recording. A foldable Nokia wireless keyboard and a wireless headset is also in the works for the 6670. Oh, did we mention that it makes phone calls too? Still, with my big fingers, I'm a little worried about being able to accurately press that last row of keys.

Sony

Looks like Sony has finally faced the hard facts of the digital music business, and is making a major shift in support for the MP3 format. The company plans to introduce new music players that support the format in Europe as early as this year. Sony's also looking to allow owners of its current models to get MP3-compatibility via software upgrades. Sony can be pretty stubborn when it comes to propietary media. Just look at their Memory Sticks and the MiniDiscs. Good to see that their coming to their senses, in a move that should help them improve their position against rivals such as Apple.

Smaller, Slimmer PlayStation 2 PStwo

Our previously rumored PStwo release has been all cleared up. Rather than being a brand new product launch, it is more of an alteration to the current product. As you can see by the picture, the PlayStation 2 has been redesigned to be smaller, lighter, and just more compact. It reminds me of a thin DVD player. Sony has even taken the liberty of adding an on board ethernet port for those of us wanting to jump online while gaming. The updated console is about the size of a book, or thin laptop, making it a lot more portable than the previous iteration.
