The Motorola Droid X website is alive and kicking! Mainly, what you see on it is the above image, and some confirmed specs: a 4.3-inch screen, HDMI-out, and according to Verizon “720p screen”. Now all that’s needed is a press release, don’t ya think?
UPDATED: Thinking about it now, the words “720p” screen must definitely be a typo. When we first leaked out an image of the Droid X (a long time ago), one of the confirmed specs was 720p video recording. Otherwise, that June 23rd event by Verizon, Motorola, and Adobe is going to be presenting the Droid X, and hopefully the new successor to the grandfather Droid — the QWERTY-sliding Droid 2.
What happens when you have the XPERIA X10, which is too large, and the XPERIA X3, which is way to freakin’ small? Welll, you make one called the XPERIA X8, that’s what! Exactly, you resolves the problem by releasing another handset using an outdated version of Android. Packing a 3″ HVGA display, 3.2 megapixel camera, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, 128MB of internal memory, 600MHz processor, and Android 1.6 with UX user interface, this might jjust be the perfect choice for you. Not that we think it’s coming on US soil though; although it’s possible, since it has quad-band 850 and 1900MHz of UMTS/HSDPA radios.
The HTC Desire, by far one of the most beautiful handsets ever made, is headed to “select regional operators” in the month of August. Keeping in line the same specs as the Nexus One (1Ghz Snapdragon, Android 2.1 with Sense UI, 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED screen) the lines select regional operators means that the Desire won’t be headed to any of the big four: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile (in that order). So then, who’s ready and waiting? A lot, for sure.
The iPhone 4 pre-order saga continues. Confidential information has been stolen, wrong billing addresses and wrong shipping addresses, AT&T’s pre-ordering system going down, along with Apple’s. It’s been chaos. Such to a point where the ordering systems mix up your info, so you could pay for an iPhone 4, and it arrives at LaptopMemo HQ’s doorstep! It’s that simple! Whether or not the 600,000 iPhones pre-ordered will arrive at the correct addresses, we don’t know, but we do know that they were purchased.
CUPERTINO, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
This is the entry-level DSLR with that famous swiveling LCD. The Nikon D5000, that is. It can go head-to-head with almost any SLR, even with the 55mm kit lens. There’s a 12.3 megapixel sensor doing all of the work, and ISO range of up to 6400 with 11 autofocus points. So how did it fare in my month-long review? Not too bad actually. It did quite well.**

So what if my friends at Engadget had something to offer you today? Would I pass it down to you? Maayyyybbee. Anywho, Vladislav Savov found a Galaxy S, hopefully not on the floor of a bar, tested it, posted some galleries, some videos, and blah-blah-blah, click on the source link to see in the Galaxy S in real life, not press shots. Have fun (then move your browser back here)!
So, what happens when Motorola, Verizon, and Adobe (since when you were so into Android? Oh I forgot, you love it.) have a little pep talk and set up a press event? Well they announce the Droid X and Droid 2, that’s what. Or at least that’s what I think they’re doing. Errr, anyways, the event is being held on the 23rd of June and no doubt will bring something better than the original Motorola Droid I just got in the mail.
The Nintendo 3DS is exactly that: a 3D, Nintendo DSi. It is the only device on the planet that can display full 3D images without those nerdy 3D glasses. The 3.5″ 3D display allows for users to change the effectiveness of the 3D graphics, and can turn it on, off, or somewhere between that (middle on, middle off?). Otherwise the 3DS also has two cameras instead of one on the outer shell which allows for 3D image taking (yes, you read that), and one extra camera (making it three) on the inside, so you can your face (ugly or beautiful). Then there’s the gyropscope, motion sensor, and Wi-Fi connectivity that sniffs out free connections and gets on the network without your telling it to. Sounds like a Dilbert fantasy if you ask us, but rest assured, it’s all real. Except there’s no pricing, release date, or anything else for that matter.
The iPhone 4, is available for pre-order on Apple’s online Store, for about $199.99 on a 2-year contract with AT&T. I’m told that the white iPhone 4, is obviously not on sale. That’s interesting, due to the fact that it’s been circling the rumor mill for quite a while now that Apple wouldn’t ship out the white iPhone as soon as we thought it would. Quoting the Apple Store, “White iPhone currently unavailable for pre-order or in-store pickup.” You can get it in black though, for $199 with a 16GB hard drive, or $299 for 32GB. Once you pre-order the phone, you can have it exactly June 24, or available for in-store pick-up.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 3GS is available for $99 (8 GB storage) — it too will be available on the 24th.
The Apple Mac Mini just got updated to a unibody style, with an SD card and HDMI port. Finally. It starts at $699 (a little too much for the Mini, in my opinion) and comes with a 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, HDMI-out is finally in, along with the SD card reader, 802.11n wireless, a Mini DisplayPort jack, and what Apple finally decided to boost the Mac Mini’s reputation, with an NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics chip inside. Besides the above, basic package, there’s another option for a faster processor, more RAM, and more hard drive space. Not bad, Apple. Not bad.
