HP’s Veer gets AT&T logo, two-tone exterior

Sunday, May 1st, 2011
We suspected HP’s diminutive webOS 2.2 smartphone might be on its way to AT&T, and now a handful of leaked photographs rocking a panda-like color scheme have further confirmed our suspicions. As you can see from the image above, the little guy’s working the carrier’s logo in the upper left-hand corner of its 2.6-inch display. The photos of HP’s smallest webOS smartphone first appeared over at Pocketnow on Friday, just days before the Veer’s May 2nd launch party is scheduled to pop off in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly when the Snapdragon-packing device will be available for purchase, or how much it will cost when it lands, but we’re hoping to have more on that after tomorrow’s alleged event. Until then, you can always live vicariously through our hands-on with this little multi-tasking wonder. Now, isn’t that just precious?

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – March 16, 2011 – Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: MMI), today announced the upcoming availability of MOTOROLA XOOM™ Wi-Fi edition from leading retailers across the United States starting March 27., Best Buy, Costco, RadioShack, Sam’s Club (select locations), Staples and Walmart will be offering the 10.1-inch widescreen HD tablet with Android™ 3.0 (Honeycomb) through both online and retail store channels. The MSRP for MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi with 32 GB of memory will be $599.

“MOTOROLA XOOM is a truly innovative tablet – its design, coupled with being the first tablet to have Android 3.0, results in a user experience that is one-of-a-kind,” said Dan Papalia, vice president of retail sales for Motorola Mobility. “We are now continuing to expand the choices available to consumers with the MOTOROLA XOOM Wi-Fi to be available soon from numerous leading retailers in the United States.”

Lenovo ThinkCenter M90z all-in-one is made for large businesses, but startups like it too

Lenovo ThinkCenter M90z all-in-one is made for large businesses, but startups like it too

Giant corporations may have huge, sprawling campuses sitting ominously just outside of city limits, but sometimes even they are running short on desk space — apparently. It’s for those organizations that Lenovo has created the ThinkCentre M90z, which the company is touting as the “first large business-focused 23-inch all-in-one desktop.” Starting at $899, it offers Intel Core i3 or i5 processors, DDR3 ram, SSD or platter storage, an integrated webcam, and of course that 23-inch touchscreen display. For more traditional establishments that like to keep things apart, there are the $1,199 and up ThinkStation C20 and C20x desktops, said to be 46 percent smaller than the ubiquitous Dell Precision T5500 and are also rack-mountable. Finally, and interestingly, there are the $259 C2230x and $279 L2321x Wide monitors, both 21.5-inch models that offer multi-tasking functionality. The former packs a port-replicator, making it easy to connect to multiple machines, while the latter can be split-screened and display two inputs at once. Hooray? All these wonderful things will be hitting fabric-walled cubicles between now and the end of July, and all are fully detailed in the press release after the break.

Satellite T100 Series: Affordable Notebooks, But You Get What You Pay For [Toshiba]

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Toshiba’s new 11.6-inch Satellite T115 and 13.3-inch Satellite T135 won’t be the flashiest thin-and-light notebooks on the market, but they’re an economical entry point into the increasingly popular class of casual-use, ultraportable laptops.

At less and inch thick and weighing in under four pounds, both new Satellites are portable, have 720p native resolution displays and cost as little as $450. The processor options aren’t anything to go crazy over, but with the optional Intel Pentium SU4100 the notebooks can achieve up to nine hours of battery life.

They won’t be your best bet for a primary computer, and I wouldn’t ask them to do too much heavy lifting, but at the lower ranges the Satellite T100 series appears to offer better than average value.

Toshiba’s thinnest and lightest Satellite laptops, T100 series laptops are ultrathin PCs built for everyday mobility. Delivering more performance than a netbook, and less weight and more battery life than standard laptops, Satellite T100 series laptops are design engineered for life on-the-go. With two screen sizes to choose from (11.6″ and 13.3″) and now equipped with a dual-core AMD processor plus ATI Radeon HD graphics, Satellite T100 series laptops offer full-range performance for productive multi-tasking and digital entertainment enjoyment in a sleek, thin and ultraportable package.

Sleek, slim mobility
Ultraportable form-factor with starting weights of 3.5 lbs and 3.9 lbs for T115 and T135 models, respectively
Slim profile measuring less than one-inch thick
Battery life rating up to 9 hours on Intel-based platforms; up to 6 hours on AMD-based platforms
Fast resume functionality

Laptop-class performance and premium features
Choice of Intel or AMD processors:
AMD Athlon™ Neo and Turion™ Neo X2 processors with ATI Radeon™ HD 3200 graphics configurations available
Intel Pentium® SU4100
Choice of 11.6″ or 13.3″ HD TruBrite® LED Backlit display with 16:9 aspect ratio and native 720p screen resolution
HDMI output
USB Sleep and Charge port
TouchPad with Multi-touch Control
Spacious hard drive configurations up to 320GB available
All models come equipped with a Hard Drive Impact Sensor
Toshiba apps: Media Controller, Bulletin Board, ReelTime and power-saving Toshiba eco utility™

Premium style with a comfort-driven design
Draped in Fusion™ Finish, available in Nova Black with Red and White color options available (T135 only)
Full-size keyboard and TouchPad
Advanced airflow technology keeps the laptop cooler when sitting on your lap

Pricing: $449.99 – $699.99 MSRP
