BlackBerry PlayBook Seen Functioning At Adobe Conference

The BlackBerry PlayBook was debuted not too long ago through some thick Plexiglass. Anyways, today’s Adobe MAX conference had a live BB PlayBook tablet running some different forms of content, and it especially likes AIR and Flash. Another plus for developers who make apps on the PlayBook using Adobe platforms is that RIM co-CEO mentioned that they’d will a free PlayBook if the app got approved. Not a bad way to get apps onto your first BlackBerry tablet, I guess.

T-Mobile LG Optimus T Priced At $30, Dated At Nov. 3rd

The LG Optimus T is nothing to get excited over. It’s the entry-level Android smartphone for new smartphone users, and has a 3.2-inch touchscreen,  3 megapixel camera with DVD quality video, and a clean version of Android 2.2. It’s priced at $29.99 and comes out on November 3rd. No, it’s not that exciting, but expect me to put it through its paces because T-Mobile has sent us a unit for one of our aggressive reviews. Good times. Via: T-Mobile On Facebook

Samsung Getting New Android Device Out On November 8th

While I may have not received my invitation yet (trust me, I’ll make it there), Samsung seems to be getting a new Android device announced on November 8th that uses Touchwiz 3.0. Interestingly, my “tingly-senses” tell me that it’ll be the Samsung Continuum, a dual-screen Super AMOLED handset with decent battery life. I’ll be announcing on Twitter if I get to make it over to Samsung’s NYC gig, since I’ll be at CES Preview the day after (where Samsung will be present), and then all the way until the 13th. Via: BGR

Nvidia Still Working On Punkbuster/Optimus Fix, And They’ll Let Me Know

See, if you’re a gamer or uber-nerd, you’ll know about the following three different things: Nvidia Optimus, a technology that seamlessly goes between a discrete and integrated graphics card so you can play games on-the-go without munching up your battery. Second is Punkbuster, an anti-cheat program for popular first person shooter games, and three, how I’ve gotten both Nvidia and Punkbuster to wake up and start fixing the incompatibility of the aforementioned technologies to work together, so people with say, an Alienware M11x R2 (that I’m typing this on now) can actually play these games with multiplayer.

The whole problem is too long and confusing to explain here, so let’s just say Nvidia released a new driver today (that doesn’t fix it), but above they promise me it’ll come in a future release.

You’re welcome nerdy PC gamers. Via: Nvidia Twitter Account (1), (2)

Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Tab To Cost $399.99 On A 2-Year Agreement

So this is interesting. The Wi-Fi only model of the Galaxy Tab will cost $499.99, the Verizon version $599.99, and now the Sprint CDMA variant will cost — $399.99 on November 14th? This is seemingly strange, considering that it’s the same device, priced differently by different companies. As for data pricing, you’ll be paying $29.99 for 2GB a month, on an agreement.

Samsung’s Wi-Fi Only Galaxy Tab To Cost $499.99 At BestBuy?

While many of you were unhappy with Verizon’s insane pricing of the new Galaxy Tab, the Wi-Fi only version will cost the same price as a Wi-Fi only iPad: $499.99. This version of the Galaxy Tab has the same specs as the CDMA model from Verizon, and will come in a silver coating. Surely this makes the Galaxy Tab slightly more “reasonable”, no? Via: Pocketables
