Intel GSMWi-Fi is fantastic assuming you can borrow bandwidth from your neighbor get a signal from a public access point.  A cellular data connection however, whether it be 2.5G (GPRS), 2.75G (EDGE), 3G (UMTS) or 3.5G (HSDPA), is a great alternative when you’re traveling or merely away from metropolitan areas

civilization.  This week Intel and the GSM Association signed an agreement to incorporate 3G technology into notebooks, eliminating the need for add-on hardware to access high-speed GSM networks.  One such product to have the new technology later this year will be Lenovo’s ThinkPad line of notebooks.  Intel’s vision is for notebooks to have access to an array of communication possibilities and for the SIM card to be the gateway to them all.

Pocket LOOX T800

With 3GSM World Congress, the show of shows when it comes to mobile phones, in full swing this week, phone announcements are coming fast and furious.  One of the latest is Fujitsu-Siemens Pocket LOOX T800 series which includes the T810 and T830 models.  Running Windows Mobile 5.0, the phones feature GSM and UMTS for connectivity to the outside world, a 416MHz XScale processor, 64MB ROM/128MB RAM, a

640x480 VGA

240x240 screen, SDIO slot, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), Bluetooth 2.0, an integrated GPS,  and a VGA camera.  Both models will also feature Microsoft’s push e-mail technology (once it’s out of litigation) which will compete with RIM’s Blackberry for domination in the workplace. 

Sort of makes Cingular’s recently released 8125 seem like the poor cousin doesn’t it?  At an estimated street price of $700 to $800 they won’t come cheap though.


CORRECTION: Some things are just too good to be true.  The screen is not 640x480 VGA, it’s only 240x240. (2-15-06)

Description
Just when you thought you would never have enough SD or Memory Stick cards to quench your appetite for storage, Seagate announces their new 12GB one-inch hard drive for mobile devices.  Talk about a mobloggers dream. This puppy is now going to demand those higher-megapixel camera phones to hit the market pronto.

Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX), the world’s leading manufacturer of Consumer Electronics (CE) hard drives, today announced the newest member of its diverse CE product portfolio, the Seagate ST1.3 Series 12GB 1-inch hard drive. With a footprint 23% smaller, 50% more storage capacity, and 30% less power consumption than Seagate’s current 1-inch hard drive, the ST1.3 Series also offers a new optional drop sensor for increased robustness, delivering the features most requested by handheld device manufacturers. The ST1.3 Series hard drive is Seagate’s second hard drive with perpendicular recording and the company’s first drive utilizing perpendicular technology in the 1-inch category.

This little Giga-Wonder-Disk has all sorts of cool new technology in place to make sure your digital media keeps up with your fast paced lifestyle.  Things like Run-on Technology and G-Force Protection will make sure that whether working out or those accidental slips-of-hand, your device will continue working and playing music without skipping a beat.  We can’t wait to see which devices will hit the market first using this new drive.

Gear Live Bleeding EdgeThis episode is packed with a ton of interviews that we shot at CES, including:

  • Major Nelson Interview: We had the opportunity to catch up with our friend Larry Hryb - Major Nelson to the layperson - to ask him about what his CES experience was like. Major had been pretty much tied to the Xbox area in the Microsoft booth, but he took a few minutes to talk to us about Fight Night 3, Dead Rising, and Street Fighter II on Xbox Live Arcade.
  • DualCor cPC: We have a look at the amazing DualCor cPC. This may turn out to be an OQO killer, as it is a handheld Windows XP computer that also runs Windows Mobile 5.0 on a separate processor, allowing the user to switch between the two OSes with the touch of an icon.
  • Netomat Hub Service: Netomat’s Hub is an online space where you can create “hubs” to get and share picture and text messages, as well as content such as news feeds and blogs with a friend or your own private group of friends. You and your friends can view and update your hubs using a PC or a mobile phone.
  • TiVo Series 3 First Look:We got some quality hands-on time with the forthcoming TiVo Series 3, TiVo’s first HD-capable DVR. The Series 3 unit has some cool new features, including a single-color, two-line OLED LCD display on the front of the unit that shows you what’s being recorded on each tuner. We interviewed Bob Pony of TiVo (TiVoPony on the TiVo Community forums) about what we can expect in the Series 3, so be sure to check out the video interview above. The quick and dirty is that it features built-in ethernet, an external SATA port for expanding your TiVo’s capacity, and that it will ship with a 250 GB hard drive.

Motorola RAZR Z

Posted by John Goulden Categories: Cell Phones

RAZR ZWith a few slider clones out on the market, Motorola has finally stepped up to the plate and delivered their very own slider phone - the RAZR Z.  Developed by Moto’s Korean division, the phone will launch there first by the end of the month, with the rest of the world to follow at a later date.  Details are sparse, but the phone will have a 2.2” display, a 1.3MP camera, be capable of playing MP3s, and is anorexic supermodel skinny at just over half an inch thick (.58”).  Approximately $516 to $616 will need to be ponied up to get your hands on one, so start saving.
