LG Optimus T Review

The LG Optimus T is special. Sure, it doesn’t have a 1GHz processor (or 800MHz for that matter), a 5 megapixel camera with 720p recording, a superb 3.7-4.3-inch screen, or any of the other things that make a smartphone nowadays brilliant. No, the Optimus T is an entry-level Android smartphone with something else: full on, uncoated, sweet Android 2.2 FroYo. Hit up the “more” link to go after the line break to know why it’s one of the best entry-level smartphones available in the U.S. today.

T-Mobile USA Samsung Galaxy Tab Launches On November 10th, Priced At $399.99 On Contract

T-Mobile just outed a friendly presser full with Galaxy Tab details and an official launch date of November 10th. A price is not mentioned though in the press release though, and that especially makes the Galaxy Tab mysterious, since every carrier in the U.S besides AT&T and T-Mobile has priced theirs differently. But T-Mobile does list the pricing on their site: $399.99 with 2-yr agreement on without data plan pricing. Full PR after the chop!

White iPhone 4 Delayed Till Spring 2011

Darn. It.

The white iPhone 4 is delayed again. Don’t ask us, the white iPhone 4 has had some manufacturing issues regarding the whiteness of the plastic around the frame, making sure that none of the materials are visible at all. While the issue was thought to be resolved this summer, Apple has said otherwise:

We’re sorry to disappoint customers waiting for the white iPhone yet again, but we’ve decided to delay its release until this Spring

Bollocks. And by that point, either a Verizon iPhone would be released, or the iPhone 5 would be announced in the usual June/July time frames. Via: BG @ BGR

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC Update Inbound, Saves Me From Insanity

See, this is one of the those ranting/personal posts that gadget bloggers get to do when they feel like it and find that it almost fits. EA will be releasing a PC update to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, which I am a proud owner and pwnage king of. It is unknown if the update will be server-side or player-side, but whatever it might be, the release is “soon” and below are the fixes which will surely save me from the insanity that is bugs in the PC version of the highly-successful first-person shooter:

  • One of the Insignia’s requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed.
  • One of the Insignia’s requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed.
  • Hit registration changes brought over from MOH to BC2; several bugfixes, the client<->server send rates have been increased, some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns, but will not make much of a difference to the knife. Removed the blue box behind the chat window.
  • The 2-second immunity when spawning/being revived can will now be immediately remove either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). Merely looking around will not remove the invulnerability. In essence: If a person moves, he is never invulnerable.
  • 3D vision fixed.

I’m looking forward to it, EA and DICE.

ASUS U35JC Review

Nothing major here, just another review unit getting scorched and reviewed. An Nvidia Optimus laptop from ASUS, the U35JC. Besides those Punkbsuter issues that Nvidia has and me working with Nvidia to resolve them and publish a new Verde driver that would fix everything for all Optimus graphics owners, the U35JC is a pleasant Intel Core i3-based laptop with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 13.3-inch screen, although there are some dents in its resume.
