The Asus Eee PC X101, one of the noted devices introduced in COMPUTEX 2011 this month will be available in stores beginning July. The ultrathin netbook will have two variants: a MeeGo model, priced at US$199 and a Windows 7 counterpart (named X101H) which will be at a US$310 to US$350 pricepoint. Inside will be a 1.33 GHz single core Atom N435, a six-cell battery and a tiny solid state drive, probably around 8 to 16 GB, considering the cheap price.
Remember the MOTOBLUR? It’s an okay user interface but some people don’t like it’s name. Public feedback showed that the name will be forgotten but we don’t know how it will be called this time. mehr »

Last week, Samsung’s Chromebook became available early at Gilt. This time, if you wish to get a hold of the Chromebook, you need to participate in a game facilitated by Google. It’s a new pre-launch strategy that requires one to join a treasure hunt in the World Wide Web starting with links as clues and then to another.
It starts from a link found in Product Marketing Manager Azhar Hashem’s post on the Google Chrome Blog entitled “Live updates on the first Chromebook preview“.
One update opens to the first Chromebook preview link which takes you to a Google Groups Announcement by Tim Berners-Lee. There you will find a huge Chrome logo at the upper right side of the window. Click the logo and you’ll be taken to the preview.
Sadly, the Chromebook is already sold out. I wonder how many were able to figure out the game and how fast.
The Universal Game Selector Case by Memorex can perfectly protect the Nintendo 3DS’ cartridge. You know how much the cartridges can be easily lost by Memorex cam up with something that’s really useful for only $20. mehr »

The Acer Aspire One 722 can run for up to seven hours. Information on release date and price aren’t available yet.
A smartphone, tablet, and netbook rolled in one nifty gadget isn’t a bad idea. That’s why Kosmaz Technology is following the footsteps of the Eee Transformer Pad and the Atrix 4G with its own Compufon concept. Let’s admit it that the name sounds like something from a 90s sci fi novel but the renders of the product look quite impressive. mehr »
