DROID Incredible 2 leaked on Verizon’s website again

Monday, April 18th, 2011

We’ve seen plenty of leaked images of Verizon Wireless’ DROID Incredible 2, the full spec list has already been leaked, and we even know the estimated price. Now, however, the phone has leaked on Verizon Wireless’ website for the second time. If there ever has been a sign that the launch is imminent, it’s this. So to build on that excitement, here’s what we know so far: The Verizon Wireless DROID Incredible 2 sports a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM 8655 Snapdragon processor, 4GB of on-board memory, 768MB of RAM, Android 2.3 with Sense, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel forward-facing camera for video chats. It’s expected to launch for $199.99 with a new two-year Verizon Wireless contract, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see this bad boy hit the market sometime in the next month or two. Hit the jump for another image.

Creative’s new gaming headset can tell up from down

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Creative’s latest cans may not have the pizazz of a wireless World of Warcraft rig, but they’ve got one feature guaranteed to make hardcore PC gamers swoon — they claim to be the very first to offer truly three-dimensional surround sound. Embued with the latest revision of Creative’s THX software collaboration (dubbed THX TruStudio Pro) the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D series “delivers a 360 degree surround sound gaming experience so gamers can hear sounds clearly from the front, back, above and below.” There’s also a set of customizable audio profiles so you can tune all the other presumably-more-powerful TruStudio algorithms just the way you like, though it’s not clear whether Creative’s included on-board memory or just has a desktop app. In terms of hardware, the $60 Tactic 3D Alpha comes with 40mm drivers, a USB audio adapter and a detachable noise-canceling microphone, while $90 buys you the Tactic 3D Sigma with larger 50mm drivers and a steel headband as well when both debut later this month. We have to admit, we’re curious to hear for ourselves whether they work as advertised — they sound like just the thing for a nice, relaxing Portal speedrun. Full PR after the break.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab said to be debuting at IFA next month

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

We’d already heard that Samsung’s 7-inch Android-based tablet (apparently known as the Galaxy Tab) would be rolling out sometime in the third quarter of this year, and it looks like we now also know when it’ll be making its official debut. According to South Korea’s JoongAng Daily, an unnamed “high-ranking official” at Samsung has confirmed that the device will be officially unveiled at IFA, which kicks off September 3rd in Berlin. No more new details beyond that, unfortunately, but previous reports have suggested that the device will match its smartphone counterpart with an AMOLED display, and boast some decent specs across the board, including Android 2.2, a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor, 16GB of on-board memory, and both WiFi and 3G connectivity.

Samsung ST5500 packs 14.2 megapixels and Wi-Fi

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Samsung has decided to pull all stops on its latest digital camera — the ST5500. This point-and-shoot sports a 14.2 megapixel sensor, Wi-Fi, 100MB on-board memory and microSD card support. For those of you who are into video, you’ll be happy to know that you can shoot footage at 30 fps with a 1280 x 720 resolution as well, which should make for some smooth playback. The 7x optical zoom camera also has a large 3.5″ LCD touchscreen on the back so everything should be more intuitive with less clutter and less buttons. With Wi-Fi built in, you can even send pictures via email and load videos straight into websites like YouTube or Vimeo. No word on pricing, but look for it to hit store shelves sometime in Q1 2010.
