iPhone 5 coming to US on September 5th?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on July 24th, 2011

According to iPhoneItalia they have a “very reliable source” who claims that Apple will be launching the iPhone 5 on October 5th on Swisscom’s network. The source is a senior executive at Swisscom. The story says that the October 5th date is the “rest of the world” date. In other words one month after the US release date: September 5th.

Apple would inform wireless carriers of their iPhone 5 intentions ahead of time, so there may be something here, but for now it is just a rumor that is unconfirmed.

HP TouchPad ships July 1st in US, 3G model coming to AT&T ‘this summer’

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2011

Amazon is shipping HP’s first webOS tablet on July 17th, but the TouchPad will go on sale to Americans on July 1st, with the UK, Ireland, France and Germany a few days later and Canada in mid-July. After that, there will be a phased rollout for Australia, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, Singapore and Spain later in the year.

It will cost $499.99 (16GB) / $599.99 (32GB) with pre-orders starting ten days from today. HP will be partnering with AT&T for a 3G edition later in the summer.

HP TouchPad to be available June 22nd, $500 for 16GB?

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2011

This isn’t official, but Synnex has possibly leaked some info on the HP Touchpad. According to some listings on its website, the HP TouchPad is estimated to be available on June 22nd in both 16GB and 32GB capacities for $499.99 and $599.99.

If you are looking for accessories, an HP-branded TouchPad case is also listed. Of course, that date is an ETA not an actual release date, but it’s pretty close to the last official word out of HP. Shouldn’t be long now anyway.

HTC Thunderbolt rumored for March 21

Posted in HTC by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2011

The HTC Thunderbolt has another firmer launch date now, through this latest rumor. Not one, but two insiders are saying that the phone will ship on March 21. BGR says that the tips came from fairly new sources, but also that HTC’s Facebook page briefly mentioned the same date. So it seems more reliable.

The phone was originally thought to have a mid-February release, with dates being repeatedly pushed back. This may be due to poor battery life that needed some firmware fixes, but we don’t even have official word on that.

BlackBerry PlayBook launching on April 10th?

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2011

According to BGR, multiple sources have said that RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook will hit store shelves on April 10th. They also have news that the BlackBerry Tablet OS will reach Gold Master status on March 31st, so it will be delivered as an update when you first boot up your device.

It matches what we’ve been hearing and RIM did promise a release for the first quarter of 2011, though we still don’t know which carriers will be providing connectivity on the tablet. Hopefully we will learn more soon.

iPad 2 announcement date leaked via a Stock Image?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2011

The latest crazy conspiracy theory on the internet is that the iPad 2′s announcement date can be found on some stock images of the iPad. Apparently, the iPad will be announced on February 9 because in the stock image, the calendar has the date “Wednesday, 9″ and February 9th of this year falls on a Wednesday.

Wow. That’s some fine leaps in logic. However, when the current iPad was announced, it was on Wednesday 27, a date which has been prominent in some iPad stock images. Coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not. Perhaps we should consult the Mayan calendar.

We finally have the US launch details of the Nintendo 3DS. The price is $249.99 and the release date is March 27, while Europeans will get it on March 25. Nintendo says that “30+” games will be available in the US during the launch, with more than 25 in Europe.

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on November 8th, 2010

It’s been a hard wait for future E7 owners. You could have bought yourself an N8 instead, but you have stayed the course. And now your wait is almost over. Nokia has announced that the 4-inch tilting QWERTY handset will start shipping out on the 10th of next month.

Great news. Just hang in there. It won’t be long now. Resist the urge to get the N8, or not, it’s up to you. The excitement is palpable, but just take a deep breath.

Nintendo 3DS may hit Japan on November 20

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2010

We can thank Japanese accessory creator keysfactory for a slip that may have revealed Nintendo’s plans in regard to the 3DS release date. A designer with the firm posted some Twitter updates (now deleted) that 11 add-ons for the game console would ship on November 20 and, apparently the 3DS itself. Nintendo has implied an end-of-year launch in at least Japan but hasn’t given us a firm date so far.

It’s not confirmed, but the details line up with Nintendo’s recent launch history. The Wii, DSi and DSi XL were all released on a Saturday, and Nintendo often prefers weekend launches.

The new phone is the second Android phone to launch in the UK following T-Mobile’s HTC-made G1. It was originally due out on April 17th, but was delayed due to “a last minute hardware change”. If you need a refresher, some features include a 3.2-inch QVGA touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as GPS.

Camera Lens Calendar keeps the date in focus

Camera Lens Calendar keeps the date in focusHere’s a great conversation piece that any photographer should appreciate. Even non-photographers will want to keep track of the date with this Camera Lens Calendar. It beats those boring paper calendars. Just adjust the focus rings until the current day and date are aligned.

It’s from the mind of designer Sharad Haksar and believe it or not it’s already headed to stores, but there’s no info on price. I’m sure it will be a hit. Then he can make one that’s powered and snaps pics for visual reminders that you need on a calendar. It could display such pics on the camera side of the lens.
