Samsung N100 New Ultra Light MeeGo Netbook Released in India

ASUS was meant to be releasing the X101 MeeGo Netbook on Monday, which silently passed with no netbook hitting the streets. It seems Samsung will be joining ASUS and Lenovo by releasing a MeeGo Netbook, the N100, which is based off their popular N150 netbook. The N100 will be featuring the new Intel Atom N435 single core processor which runs at 1.33 GHz and integrated Intel GMA3150 graphics solution.

The Samsung N100 has a matte 10.1-inch display with the usual 1024 x 600 screen resolution. Under the hood we’ve got 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and a 250 GB hard drive. There are also two USB 2.0 ports (on the N150, there were 3), a VGA port, the usual audio ports, a 4-in-1 card reader and an Ethernet port. The biggest difference from the original N150 is the use of a 3-cell battery, which may have the battery life around 4-5 hours since MeeGo uses less battery. Also, the N435 processor has yet to be put through the full paces on performance so this is just a guestimate. Still, the N100 promises to be thinner then its Windows based role model and will weigh in at a meager 1.03 kg on the scales. We hear that there will be a version featuring a 4400mAh 6-cell battery, which is what we hope you’ll grab if you’ve got the option.

The Samsung N100 was for the Indian market with an estimated retail price of 12290 rupees, which is about about €194 or $275. [Source: netbooknews.com]

Toshiba Thrive Unboxing & 1st Impressions [Video]

This NVIDIA Tegra 2 tablet features a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. The Toshiba Thrive also has a HDMI and USB ports, and a micro SD slot. Apart from its replaceable battery, it otherwise retains all the standard Honeycomb tablet trimmings. The Thrive is available in a 16GB model retailing for $480 and 32GB model and an 8GB version for $430 from Amazon.

We like the pricing of this tablet, it has alot to offer for the price point, full HDMI and USB support, full SD card slot, and replaceable battery. Its also got a built-in file management system makes finding and accessing files in Honeycomb easier. However, its got a pretty bulky design and is a little on the heavy side and its the LED lights on the bezel can be flashy for my liking. Its removable battery is unique so the fact that its a little thicker is justified.

Toshiba Thrive Specifications:

10.1-inch (1280 x 800) IPS LCD display with 16:10 wide aspect ratio, and 1280 X 800 resolution.
1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-core processor.
5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, Autofocus.

2MP front-facing camera for video chats.
8GB/ 16GB/ 32GB Memory Storage.
Micro-SD card slot expandable up to 32GB.
Mini-USB port, HDMI port, 3.5mm headphone jack.
Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, A-GPS support.
7 hours of battery life per single charge. [Source: netbooknews.com]

Apple releases Safari 5.1 web browser for Mac, Windows

OS X Lion and a few new Mac computers aren’t the only things Apple launched today. The company also released the latest version of the Safari web browser for Mac and Windows.

Safari 5.1 has a few new features baked in, including a Reading List that allows you to save pages you want to read later. Just hold down the shift button while you click on any link to add it to your Reading List. You can also open Reading List in your sidebar and add any page by clicking the “Add Page” button.”

You’ll also be able to access your personal reading list from your computer when surfing the web using an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 5 once the mobile software update is available to the public.

There’s also a Safari Reader view that allows you to read pages in your Reading List in a streamlined view with nothing but text, links, and photos — no ads, sidebars, or other web content. As a web publisher I’m not entirely sure how I feel about that feature yet, but as a reader, it looks promising. Interestingly, I noticed that the Reader option wasn’t available on most Apple websites.

The browser also includes new privacy options that let you view or remove data collected by web sites, block cookies, or limit access to location data.

If you’re using the new web browser on OS X Lion you also get support for new multi-task touchpad gestures, a sandboxing feature that prevents websites from installing malware on your computer, and improved graphics performance.

I took Safari 5.1 for a spin on a computer running Windows 7, and while the browser doesn’t offer all the features you get if you’re using a Mac, it’s a pretty strong browser on Windows. Web pages load quickly, and if you’ve used Google Chrome lately you should be right at home with the minimal look and feel of the toolbar at the top of the browser window. [Source: liliputing.com]

Fujitsu F-07C: Windows 7 phone launches this weekend in Japan

Windows Phone 7 is nice and all… but if you’ve ever wished your phone could run a full-blown desktop operating system, you might want to get yourself over to Japan. On July 23rd Fujitsu will begin selling a smartphone running Windows 7 Home Premium.

The Fujitsu F-07C measures 4.9″ x 2.4″ x 0.8″ and weighs less than half a pound. It has a 4 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display and a 1.2 GHz Intel Atom Z600 processor. The phone has 32GB of storage, 1 GH of RAM, and a 5.1MP camera.

The device gets a whopping 2 hours of battery life when you use it as a PC. Fortunately there’s also a low power phone mode which gives you a little over 6 hours of talk time or 600 hours of standby time.

In Windows mode you can run full-blown desktop apps including Internet Explorer 9, Windows Media Player, and Microsoft Office. There’s also support for Adobe Flash Player and Microsoft Silverlight. There’s a slide-out QWERTY keyboard with a trackball and mouse button for navigating through the Windows user interface.

Fujitsu will also offer a separate docking station with USB and HDMA ports so you can connect a mouse, keybaord, monitor, or other peripherals.

The phone will be available from Japanese wireless carrier NTT Docomo. [Source: liliputing.com]


JailbreakMe 3.0 source code now available for your perusal

The developer behind one of the coolest jailbreak utilities around has released the source code. This allows anyone to examine how the exploit works, and possibly to improve upon it.

JailbreakMe 3.0 provides the easiest way to jailbreak an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.3.3 or earlier is to use JailbreakMe 3.0. Basically you point your mobile web browser at a web site, click a button, and your device will download a corrupted PDF file, start running some code, and in a few seconds the Cydia store will be installed allowing you to download and install apps that aren’t available from the official App Store.

That includes apps that alter the behavior of your device at the system level, changing the way you receive notifications or changing the logo that appears when you first boot your device, for instance.

More than a million iOS devices were jailbroken using the exploit in the first few days. A few days later Apple released a software update closing the security hole, so you can’t use JailbreakMe to open up a device running iOS 4.3.4 or higher. But the source code may hold some value for posterity… or for anyone that hasn’t yet upgraded their device.

In the meantime, there are other ways to jailbreak a device running iOS 4.3.4. [Source: mobiputing.com]

Dolphin Browser HD 6.0 Webzine hits Android Market

The team behind the popular Dolphin Browser HD have been testing a new version for the past few weeks with a “Webzine” feature that lets you view news from some web sites in a magazine-style layout. Now Dolphin Browser HD 6.0 with Webzine has left beta and it’s available as a free download from the Android Market.

The Webzine feature allows you to customize your new tab page with links to sites such as the New York Times, NPR, CNN, or the BBC. When you click on a link to a Webzine you’re taken to a new page with thumbnail photos, headlines, and snippets of each article. Webzines tend to load more quickly than full web pages and the layout is attractive and well suited for phones with small screens.

Tap on a headline or photo to open the article and things start to break down a little bit. You still get a quick-loading, streamlined mobile experience without any advertisements. But for most web sites you’ll only see the first few paragraphs of a story. If you want to keep reading you’ll have to click the “view article” button to load the full web page.

Webzines are certainly attractive, but I’m not entirely convinced that they’re all that useful. Still, Dolphin is throwing them in for free and the feature doesn’t seem to slow down the browser at all. Dolphin Browser HD is still one of the fastest, most customizable web browsers available for Android.

Version 6.0 also brings a new logo and program icon as well as some bug fixes including improved performance with Google images and better support for the Asus Eee Pad Transformer and Motorola XOOM tablets. [Source: mobiputing.com]

Jailbreak Windows Phone 7 for $9

Soon you’ll be able to jailbreak Windows Phone 7 for $9

A group of independent developers is working with Microsoft to provide an officially sanctioned tool for jailbreaking Windows Phone 7 devices. Right now if you want to install apps that aren’t available from the Windows Phone Marketplace you need to pony up $99 for a developer license. But the upcoming ChevronWP7 tool will let you do it for just $9.

One of the developers unveiled the pricing today on Twitter.

The tool is aimed at developers that want to test their apps on the platform before committing to spending nearly a hundred bucks to join the official developer program. But it could also provide a way for Windows Phone 7 owners with no coding skills to install unofficial apps without going through the Marketplace — assuming developer start to write such apps for the platform.

Asus Xtion Pro motion sensor, like Kinect

Remember the Xtion Pro and Wavi Xtion motion sensors that Asus showed off at CES? Well, fast-forward six months and there's already an updated model on the market: the Windows- and Linux-compatible Xtion Pro Live. The new version complements the original's IR and depth sensors with a Kinect-like VGA webcam and a pair of microphones, while also jacking up the bill to a distinctly un-Kinect-like 175 Euros ($300).

That price tag won't make us shift our living room furniture around anytime soon, especially since Kinect is already officially heading to the PC. However, that isn't really the point: the Pro Live edition is primarily meant to help developers design better games and apps for the more consumer-focused but as yet unreleased Wavi. Soon as they develop a game that rewards rather than punishes us for dancing like Tina Turner, we'll be right there. [Source: engadget.com]

Sony's CMT-CX5BiP HiFi system takes a style cue from the S2

Leave it to Sony to deliver odd-ball futuristic designs. The company's latest CMT-CX5 "HiFi" system sure is a looker, and could easily be mistaken as the lovechild of its S2 tablet and B&W's Zeppelin. This made for iPhone rig packs 40 watts of RMS power in its modular design with removable speakers, and can also be wall-mounted if you've cluttered your bookshelves.

To get the jams flowing, you'll find an iDevice dock, CD player, USB and aux-in ports, as well as FM and DAB / DAB+ radio tuners; Sony's also added in its Dynamic Sound Generator X-tra processing if you want to give your music a slap of vibrance. You'll be able to pick up the CX5 in either black or white from the UK beginning in August, although pricing remains to be seen. For now, feel free to skim the PR past the break while you decide.

Samsung Galaxy S II destined for Bell July 21st for $150

Time to break out the peanut butter and syrup, folks, because Bell is waffling. The Canadian mobile provider looked all set for a July 21st launch of the highly-coveted Samsung Galaxy S II, according to a listing on Best Buy Canada, but the page has unfortunately been pulled.

When it was live, the galactic sequel was priced for $150 with three-year commitment, and if that were true it would make Bell the first North American carrier to offer the hot-selling Android device -- though it certainly won't be the last. Was the page taken down at Bell's request to allow it the chance to formally announce the device? Has it been delayed? Or, was it just wrong? While we're guessing it's the first possibility -- it is, certainly, a flagship phone that deserves some fanfare -- we'll toss a quarter in the wishing well in hopes that our dreams come true next Thursday.

Qualcomm Vellamo browser benchmark for Android devices

Qualcomm's not exactly a novice when it comes to sizing up phones -- it's already responsible for the graphics benchmark Neocore. Now, it also wants to show you just how much your mobile browser is lagging. The company just introduced Vellamo, a suite of 11 tests designed to gauge browser performance on Android phones and tablets. In case you're curious, it takes its name from the Finnish goddess of the sea who lures away sailors web surfers (Qualcomm's joke, not ours). And yes, it'll work with any device running Android 2.0 or above, even if it doesn't pack a Qualcomm-made processor.

These tests span four broad categories -- rendering, JavaScript, user experience, and networking -- with only two requiring an internet connection (even then, you can cherry pick specific tests to run). We took it for a spin on our aging, Froyo-packing, Motorola Droid, whose score of 237 landed at the very bottom of the list of results, far behind tablets and newer handsets. (As of this writing, Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 took the cake.) Curious to see how your device ranks? Hit the source link to download the free APK file. [Source: engadget.com]


How to install and root Android 3.2 on the Motorola XOOM

Motorola began rolling out an over-the-air software update for the Motorola XOOM tablet today. It brings Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb and it finally fixes the bug that prevented the microSD card slot on the tablet from functioning properly. But if you don’t feel like waiting for Motorola to send you an update, it’s possible to download and install it directly on your device. As an added bonus, you can also root the tablet so that you can install officially unsupported apps, overclock it, or make other changes.

Xda-developers forum member stachre has detailed instructions. In a nutshell, you download a copy of the Android 3.2 system update that’s been kindly uploaded by one of the first users to grab it and then use the ClockworkMod Recovery tool on your rooted tablet to load the custom recovery file.

The process doesn’t look all that difficult, but it’s only been tested on the US version of the Motorola XOOM WiFi. If you have a different model you might want to wait for Motorola to issue an update for your device — or for someone to hack one together and confirm that it works. [Source: liliputing.com]

TiVo app for iOS: supports iPhone, iPod touch

TiVo has been offering an iPad app which lets you schedule recordings, view program guides, find online video, or read cast bios and other information while you’re watching TV. Now the company has made the TiVo app a universal app, which means you can run it on an iPhone or iPod touch as well.

The TiVo app for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store.

It’s designed to work with a TiVo Premier digital video recorder, but the latest version also adds limited support for TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD set-to-boxes as well as RCN Premiere and Suddenlink DVRs. You can also now use the app in guest mode if you want to explore the features but you don’t actually have a supported DVR. [Source: mobiputing.com]

Redsn0w update: Support iOS 5 beta 3 Jailbreaking

Apple released iOS 5 beta 3 to developers yesterday, and within minutes it was confirmed that you could use the latest version of the redsn0w tool to jailbreak an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. But it didn’t take long for users to identify a big problem: If you did jailbreak iOS 5 beta 3 yesterday many apps download from the App Store would crash as soon as you launched them.

Now the folks at the iPhone Dev Team have identified the problem and released a new version of redsn0w.

You can use redsn0w 0.9.8b2 to jailbreak any device running iOS 5 beta 1, beta 2, or beta 3. If you’ve already jailbroken your device, you don’t need to do it again — just use the new tool to perform a tethered reboot on your device and you should be able to run App Store apps again.

Klipsch Mode noise-canceling headphones

We've been worried about Klipsch's future since Audiovox joined the picture, but it looks like there isn't reason to fret just yet. Remember the company's first on-ear headphones, the Image One? Well, Klippy's back for round two evidently; its Mode active noise-canceling headphones have quietly popped up on its website with a whopping $350 price tag and a fall 2011 release.

The collapsible earcups are padded in plushy leather and house a 40mm mid / low woofer with a 15mm tweeter for silky highs, crunchy mids, thumping lows. Also included are two detachable 3.5mm cables, one of which has an Apple-certified three-button inline remote / mic. Best of all, ANC can be enabled for up to 45 hours on a single battery to zone out any bustle around you. We'll have an ears-on with these very soon, but you'll find details now via the source link below.

HP TouchPad 4G for AT&T hands-on [Video]

Earlier today, AT&T announced that the HP TouchPad is coming to its 4G network, complete with a processor bump to 1.5GHz (up from 1.2GHz) and an HSPA+ radio. The carrier wasted no time getting its latest slate out in the public, showing it off at an event in NYC this afternoon.

There aren't any cosmetic changes to speak of, but that faster connectivity and notable processor boost are certainly nothing to shrug at. We had a chance to see the tablet in action, and it performed fairly well, especially considering the poor connectivity environment AT&T selected to host its event. Jump past the break to see it in action in our hands-on video, or check out our full review of HP's slower, WiFi-only TouchPad. [Source: engadget.com]

AT&T launches Sony Ericsson Xperia Play with Gingerbread, blue color option

Well, looky here. AT&T has very quietly revealed it's going to sell the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. No press release, no splashy press conference backed by a cheesy disco soundtrack. The thing just showed up at the carrier's holiday preview event here in New York City. We're told it runs Gingerbread, which would make it AT&T's second Android 2.3 handset behind the newly launched HTC Status.

Alas, AT&T won't say just yet when the Play will be available or how much it will cost on contract, but we do know a couple things for sure. One, it'll run on the network's 21MBps-capable HSPA+ network. Two, it'll be available in a "Stealth Blue" color option, in addition to the stock black model we've handled before. Other than that, the specs -- namely, the 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chip and 4-inch (854 x 480 display) -- remain the same. Hands-on shots with the sparkling navy number below.
