The Microsoft Kin 1 and Kin 2 offer a different type of OS on the phone, similar but not actually Windows Mobile of any generation. Both phones look similar to the old Sidekick and are targeted at a younger audience that wants easy access to their social media apps. The difference in the models is twofold, the 2 is a bottom slider with 8GB of storage while the 1 slides to the side and has only 4GB, neither have external storage capabilities. Check out the new look at Digital Tr

Acer has let slip a that it will be releasing a brand new 17.3" multimedia notebook combining AMD's latest Vision technology. In the combination is AMD's Phenom X2 Quad core CPU, and ATI HD Radeon (no word on the exact SKUs). The notebook also features 16:9 aspect ratio, HDMI, and a Blu-Ray drive, so I'm guessing that the screen resolution should be at least 1920x1080.
Pricing and availability not available yet, but expect it soon!

With the arrival of the iPad, one might almost think it was a brand new type of device never before seen on this planet, which really is not true. Ryan has pointed out that while Apple's marketing team has done its usual brilliant job of convincing consumers that their product is the only choice, most of the features of the iPad have already been seen in other devices. Consider the Camangi WebStation, running Google Android and sporting a 7" LCD, WiFi and 3G support, 256MB onboard NAND and USB plugs! A 625MHz Marvell chip is

Sure, you might think I am biased after reading my recent editorial about Apple and their new iPad, but keep in mind that I have one sitting right next me, right now and I am using it. Most of the time. Anyway, an interesting thing is being shown at the Web 2.0 Expo in the northeast: Android-based tablets running "flawless" versions of Adobe Flash and Adobe Air.
And why Apple owes everything to developers
Apple is getting a lot of attention from the new iPad, but is Apple really the company the deserves the credit for the revolutionary applications that finally making tablets interesting? Or is Apple just a beneficiary of third-party applications and crazed fans that soak up Apple hardware by the millions?

The newest contributor to PC Perspective, Ken Addison, has just completed another review and its topic is a first. There hasn't been a review of a smartphone hit the front page before his review of the HTC Droid Incredible. It certainly makes sense as the service that this phone receives makes web browsing a good experience as opposed to the frustration offered by phones with slower connections. We are still waiting for 4G phones but for now this will keep you surfing, and dialling in style. It sports the fastest proces

The Lenovo X100e shares many attributes with its predecessors, as with previous X series it is a small and light notebook, an 11.6" display @ 1366x768 and a weight of 1.3kg. The big difference is the chip powering the notebook, AMD has finally broken into this market with their Athlon Neo MV-40 @ 1.6 GHz. The AMD 780G chipset means there is a Radeon Mobility HD 3200 powering the graphics and sharing the 1GB of DDR2. The power of the Neo is significantly higher than the Atom, both in the power it draws, 15W as opposed to 2.5W and in performance, which is where the Neo shines i
