Panasonic Lumix GF2 Leaked On Billboard, Hopefully Launches Tomorrow

This is the sexiest Micro Four Thirds camera yet, as well as the world’s smallest, courtesy from Panasonic. Containing the same monster 12 megapixel sensor from the G2, it’ll record full HD, has a touchscreen, and an announcement pinged in Paris for tomorrow. If all goes well, this’ll be a good contender in my wishlist against the Nikon D3100, which Nikon is kindly loaning to us for a review. Huzzah!

T-Mobile To Let Loose ‘Largest 4G Network’ Campaign

T-Mobile left us a tip in the ‘ol inbox and is going to rough up some of the other big guys with a new TV campaign with their “largest 4G network” message. While not technically 4G, T-Mobile’s speeds are 21Mbps (and T-Mobile is looking to bump that up to 42Mbps in 2011 and even 84 and 168Mbps after that) making their network — what’s the words I’m looking for — fry your smartphone fast.

As for the total amount of cities under the warm “4G” blanket, T-Mobile has 75+ HSPA+ cities which keep an estimated 200 million people warm. I’m getting too far with this, aren’t I?

As for devices, the MyTouch 4G launches tomorrow and will be a primary feature of the campaign; Chicago, IL, Colorado Springs, CO, Ft. Wayne, IN, Louisville, KY, and Raleigh-Durham and Wilmington, NC also will have 4G as of today. Press release in the usual spot, after the break.

Samsung Continuum Sits On Verizon Wireless Holiday Page

Is that the Samsung Continuum? Yes it is! The little sucker has a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED and the “ticker” notification screen making it a dual-screen phone. It also uses Bing as the default search option, but it being (purportedly) Android 2.2, you can make a trip to the Android Market to get the Google Search widget and app. The announcement seems to be on the 8th (or the Nexus S?), so by then we’ll have a price and release date.

Palm Pre 2 pre-orders kick off on — November 8th

Damn. Another technology event on November 8th. We have Samsung’s, Windows Phone 7 launching in the U.S, and now HP stating that the Palm Pre 2 pre-orders start on November 8th via their Facebook page for students. I’ve just created a tag for the date alone.

HP for Students – US: Check out the new Palm Pre Plus 2, pre-orders begin 11/8

Honestly I have high hopes for the Pre 2 with HP webOS 2.0, although it’s inevitable that we’ll be disappointed in some areas. As of yet, it’s unknown if this is the Palm Pre 2 meant for devs as a GSM model, or the CDMA-glorified Verizon version.

Find Google Bugs, Leave With $500. That’s Right, Google’s Giving You Money Now

This is interesting. Google, you know that company made an announcement yesterday, and it applies to sites like,, and The task is simple: find a bug, report it to Google, and they’ll kindly give you at least $500 up to $3,133.70. You got that 1337? Do you understand n00bs? It’s time to get your pwnage hats and get some money in the bank. Google is mainly looking at the XSS type of vulnerability, but other bugs would surely be of help.

Oh! If you live in either Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, or Syria you can’t win a cent. It’s not like you’re reading this from those places, right? Right?

Motorola DROID 2 Global Final Details Surface, Some Details Missing

A handy chart whipped up in Photoshop by Motorola and leaked by Droid-Life compares the DROID 2 Global to the iPhone 4 and the two other big Androids on Verizon: the Samsung Fascinate and DROID Incredible. First off, the Droid 2 Global contains that meaty 1.2 GHz processor, comes in “Dark Sapphire” or “Winter White” and still has the same 3.7-inch, 854 x 480-pixel touchscreen display. Other features include Android 2.2, Dual Band CDMA, Quad Band GSM and Tri Band UMTS for usage almost anywhere in the world with the right SIM card.

And here’s some more specs:

• Remote wipe of device and SD card
• Document editing with QuickOffice
• Inbox filtering
• Invite attendees to meetings using GAL
• Free/busy lookups for meeting participants
• 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash
• Dual-band CDMA and quad-band GSM
• Physical keyboard and virtual Swype keyboard
• 8GB internal memory plus 8GB pre-installed SD card
• Android 2.2
• 3 UI profiles
• 3G mobile hotspot capability
• Flash 10.1

And still we’ll need a release date and price; those details are missing Verizon and we all want them soon.

Remember The Notion Ink Adam? Good, It’s Got Some Improvements

If you’re one of the few that still think the Notion Ink Adam isn’t vaporware and is in fact getting released, then continue reading. This time the Adam is due to ship this month, and comes in two screen options: an LCD model and a Pixel Qi trans-reflective LCD variant; both of which contain a CPU/GPU team of 1GHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 processor and Nvidia Tegra 2 graphics. Connectivity will be addressed, so it’ll feature 2 USB ports, a micro USB port, an HDMI-out port, a microSD card slot, and SIM card slot. Not bad.

And if you were wondering which version of Android it would use, 2.2 FroYo is the answer. That’s some almighty good looking non-vaporware, if I do say so myself. Via: Notion Ink
