As Phil shows here, the iPod Shuffle will now come in different colors for a great price.
AppleInsider is saying that they know the model numbers for the new iPods, but the list below excludes the iPod Touch. As some sources have stated, the iPod might be having problems with the camera that”s in it, making Apple push back the release date. In the meantime, the iPod Shuffle looks like it will come in different clors and the iPod Classic isn’t dying, meaning that it’s gonna stay!

The RIM BlackBerry Bold 9700 (aka the Onyx dude!) is finally here! T-Mobile said UMA Wi-Fi calling (part of the HotSpot@Home service), visual voicemail, as well as corporate email.
It will support TeleNav GPS Navigator and the Amazon MP3 store already pre-installed in the unit.
Although RIM hasn’t officially announced this yet, we all assume that these are the specs:
• New Trackpad
• Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
• 480×360 resolution screen
• Wi-Fi (802.11g)
• OS 5.0
• QWERTY keyboard
• 3.2 megapixel AF camera
The Palm Pixie. That’s the name of Palm’s second WebOS smartphone, the first being the Palm Pre. It will debut at Fashion Week in New York this week. It will have the same operating system as its cousin the Palm Pre, but will be half the price ($99).
The specs, from Engadget, show that the Pixie stand up to its name:
So really this is a budget smartphone, not a smartphone.
What carrier it will be on is unknown at this time though, just hope it won’t be on AT&T.
The razor thin Sony VAIO X series is a pretty thin laptop. Remember, it’s a freaky 0.55 inches thin! So as part of promotional purposes, Sony released a video with the X Series in it and classy music:
So far here’s what we know about it:
1. It’s CULV powered and runs off a lame Atom processor.
2. It’s thin (obviously).
3. It should retail for less than $2000 bucks. Ouch.
Oh my Lord, MMS for iPhone will finally launch September 25th! AT&T told us so! Finally, it will be available to iPhone 3G users and iPhone 3GS users via a software update, but if you have an original iPhone, well, get out of here, there won’t be any MMS for you. AT&T stated that “it was important to give our customers a positive experience from day one” so they needed the time in order “to make sure our network is ready to handle what we expect will be a record volume of MMS traffic.”
We don’t know when the tethering will start because, well, we don’t know yet. But we do have MMS now, right?
Here’s the official announcement:
An Update on iPhone MMS for our Mobility Customers
We know many of our iPhone customers are eager for an update on our rollout schedule for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS). We’ve been working for the past several months to prepare our systems and network to ensure the best possible experience with MMS when it launches – and that launch date is: September 25 for iPhone 3G and 3GS customers. MMS will be enabled through a software update on that day.
We know that iPhone users will embrace MMS. The unique capabilities and high usage of the iPhone’s multimedia capabilities required us to work on our network MMS architecture to carry the expected record volumes of MMS traffic and ensure an excellent experience from Day One. We appreciate your patience as we work toward that end.
We’re riding the leading edge of smartphone growth that’s resulted in an explosion of traffic over the AT&T network. Wireless use on our network has grown an average of 350 percent year-over-year for the past two years, and is projected to continue at a rapid pace in 2009 and beyond. The volume of smartphone data traffic the AT&T network is handling is unmatched in the wireless industry. We want you to know that we’re working relentlessly to innovate and invest in our network to anticipate this growth in usage and to stay ahead of the anticipated growth in data demand, new devices and applications for years to come.
We thank you for your business and look forward to keeping you updated on our initiatives.
It’s over fans, no more HD DVD. No really, did people think HD DVD could have won? Well I won’t say, but Toshiba is turning themselves in by making the BDX2000 Blu-Ray player. So you can all surrender now, there’s nothing to fight for.
It doesn’t look too bad actually, kinda nice for a Blu-Ray player, right?
Here’s the specs:
Okay, really Sony got me here. I though that GT PSP would be in a bundle package with the PSP Go!, not the crummy PSP 3000! As usual it’s $199, comes out October 1st, has a copy of Gran Turismo PSP, a 2 GB memory stick, PSN movie downloadable voucher (we don’t know which movie yet), a Sony MusicPass that lets you get 10 songs, a voucher to get a white Corvette ZR1 for the game, and a PSP 3000 of the same color.
It’s probably the most stuff Sony ever put in a PSP bundle, but come on, no PSP Go? At least it’s a lot of bang for your buck.
Sony has always made crazy thin laptops, until the Macbook Air came along, Sony was the slimmest guy around. Now they are again. The Sony X Series is an 11.2 inch carbon fibre ultraportable that’s 0 .55 inches thin, thinner than the 0.65 Dell Adamo and even thinner than the 0-.76 inch Macbook Air. The weight is 1.5 pounds, half of the Macbook Air. And Sony says it will have great battery life. But remember, this laptop might so expensive that it could by Sony itself.
Oh yeah, it has an Atom processor according to Engadget. Sony you just killed it, you killed one of the coolest looking laptops of all time. But you can still call the Macbook Air the “Macbook Fat”.
