Pebble wristwatch picks up Bluetooth 4.0 after massive demand

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Wearables, Wireless / WiFi

Pebble Bluetooth Watch

Allerta, the group behind the Pebble Bluetooth watch that became an overnight Kickstarter sensation, has announced that due to overwhelming demand, the watch will be compatible with Bluetooth 4.0. If you scour the comments on the Pebble Kickstarter page, you'll notice Bluetooth 4.0 requests by the plenty. We figured it was just too late in the game to switch around the design of a watch that's slated to ship so soon, but the company says that Bluetooth 4.0 inclusion was on the list for a while, and therefore, the decision won't affect the ship date at all. That said, when the Pebble watch does ship, it'll be Bluetooth 2.1 out of the gate, with the Bluetooth 4.0 module being activated later through a software update that'll be available to all.

Posted by Ponzi Black Categories: PC / Laptop

Dell-Inspiron-Mini-12 has officially announced the newest member to their family of mini laptops, the Inspiron Mini 12.  The Mini 12 comes with an Intel Atom Z520 1.3GHz or the Z530 1.6GHZ processor, 80GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth, WiFi, a Webcam and a 12-inch display.  The laptop comes loaded with Windows Vista Home Basic, and has a starting price of less than $600.  The Mini 12 is currently only available in Japan, but will come to the U.S. soon. 

The specs make this a very capable machine, but running Vista with only 1GB of RAM make take some of the wind out of its sprint.  You could always load it with XP when it arrives and then have a very fast machine, the likes of the MacBook Air, but for a fraction of the price.
