Photos claim to show Apple’s lighter, cheaper iPhone 4 prototype

Posted in iPhone by Reuben Drake on July 28th, 2011

Looks like there has been some potential photo leaks of what is claimed to be the prototype device of a cheaper and lighter iPhone 4. This would replace the iPhone 3GS as Apple’s entry level iPhone. Yes, it looks just like an iPhone 4, except for the identification numbers on the back being X’d out, which could indicate that it is a prototype device.

The source of the leak admitted that it would be hard to convince people that this is the real deal since it looks so similar to the iPhone 4.

Samsung demos 55-inch glasses-free 3D TV prototype

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

Samsung is now showing off a 55 inch glasses-free 3D TV at the FPD China trade show. It’s a prototype for now. The 55-inch display can accommodate nine different viewpoints for glasses-free 3D viewing, and can be switched into a 2D mode any time.

To switch modes, it changes the optical refraction index of an LCD panel that sits on top of the main LCD that’s actually used to display images. The prototype uses a direct-lit CCFL backlight, which will likely be replaced with an LED backlight before it hits the market. For now, it’s still about 3 years away.

Dell Thunder prototype detailed

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 20th, 2010

The folks over at Engadget have a pair of Dell Thunder smartphone prototypes and they’ve shared some details about the specifications. The new Dell Thunder will be equipped with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor with Qualcomm Adreno graphics, 4.1-inch touch-screen display, 512 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, and maybe a front-facing VGA camera.

The two devices had different operating systems, with one running a developer build of Android 1.6 and the other running Android 2.1. That made a differences to their resolutions of 800 x 600 and the other 1,280 x 768.

Dell Thunder Prototype pictures spotted

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 12th, 2010

Pictures and a video of the upcoming Android-powered Dell Thunder tablet have surfaced, giving us some hints of what is to come from the device. According to the leak, the device features an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash, 720p video recording capabilities, and a removable 1,400mAh battery.

The device pictured is running the vanilla Android 2.1, but it will likely offer a custom skin from Dell when it’s released. The screen resolution of the 4.1-inch display is most likely 800 x 480 pixels and an OLED panel.

Amazon building prototype hardware beyond Kindle

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2010

According to the New York Times’ Bits blog, some “people with direct knowledge” of Amazon’s plans say that Lab 126 (the division of the company which designed the Kindle) is looking into other hardware. One source reports that such devices are meant to enable easy purchasing of Amazon’s content, which currently includes music, movies, and digital books.

The source also says that CEO Jeff Bezos’ intent for Lab 126 was initially to build multiple devices. They even toyed with the idea of entering the mobile phone market, but Kindle eventually became the focus. Apparently, Amazon’s hardware division currently has about 80 job openings, which would give this some weight.

MasterPad prototype runs Windows 7

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Windows 7 wasn’t exactly meant for tablet devices, but we are seeing it on tablets more often. Now Pegatron has their new MasterPad prototype tablet, measuring just 14mm thin with an 11.6″ IPS (In Plane Switching) display, running at 1,366 x 768 widescreen resolution.

Some other specifications include a 1.3-megapixel webcam with a microphone, USB ports, a memory card reader, an accelerometer, a mini-HDMI port, 3G and 32GB or 64GB SSD options. The body is magnesium and aluminum alloy. The 2-cell battery is a bit disappointing but hopefully the final product will better.

Posted in BlackBerry,Curve by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2010

TechnoBuffalo has some good news for Blackberry fans. That good news is some hands-on time with the Blackberry Curve 9300. The prototype 8500 replacement has T-Mobile UK bands and is working (With OS 5 at right now).

Looks like the keyboard is improved, the side buttons are more flush with the phone itself, and there are also a few cosmetic differences that can be spotted in the picture above. Check out the video below.

Adobe prototype Android tablet running Air and Flash

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

Not only did they demonstrate Flash running on phones like the Nexus One and Palm Pre at the Web 2.0 Expo, but Adobe also has a prototype Android tablet that, according to Zedomax, runs Flash and Air apps “flawlessly.” There aren’t any details on the tablet itself yet, but it seems that it does indeed run Air and Flash pretty nicely.

It runs Wired’s Air-based magazine app and plays YouTube videos without any problems. However, we would like to see it pushed a little harder. Hopefully we will learn more soon. You can check out a video below.

Police investigating lost iPhone prototype raid Gizmodo editor’s home

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2010

The saga of the lost fourth-gen iPhone prototype acquired by Gizmodo last week continues and it has just got even more dramatic. Gizmodo editor Jason Chen’s house was raided by California’s REACT computer crimes task force, who had a search warrant on Friday night.

His computers and other items were seized and taken away by truck. The warrant was signed by a Judge of Superior Court of San Mateo. According to Gaby Darbyshire, COO of Gawker Media LLC, the search warrant to remove the computers was invalid under section 1524(g) of the California Penal Code.

Did Gizmodo pay $10,000 for “lost” iPhone 4G

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

The Internet is on fire today with Gizmodo’s hands on preview of what appears to be Apple’s next-gen iPhone. In case you missed the story, someone found an iPhone in a bar in Redwood City. The device appeared to be an iPhone 3GS, but when the cover was removed, it was clear that this was no ordinary iPhone. It appeared to be Apple’s next-gen iPhone. And it looks like that is exactly what it is.

The guy who found the iPhone sent pictures of it to Engadget. Later Gizmodo actually obtained the iPhone in question, which has given Gizmodo over 2.5 million page views on that story alone. Then came word that Gizmodo had paid 10 grand for the iPhone prototype. Did they? We don’t know. Were they and Engadget in a bidding war? We don’t know.

Prototype Windows Phone 7 Series Smartphone from LG

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2010

Aaron Woodman, the director of consumer experiences for Microsoft’s mobile division, showed off a prototype of LG’s Windows Phone 7 Series phone over at Engadget. We don’t have many details, but we do know that it’s a QWERTY slider that’s just a tad thicker than the iPhone, with a 5MP camera, and six hardware buttons.

Woodman wouldn’t confirm or deny if Windows Phone 7 Series would support Mac OS, but he mentioned that they are currently discussing it at least. A windows phone supporting Mac OS? Maybe. Sounds like crazy talk.

Mystery Motorola Android prototype spotted in Brazil

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2010

Look what Gizmodo Brazil has uncovered. A Motorola Android prototype that has never been seen. It was apparently shown to employees of the company last week. So just what is this? Well it looks like a keyboardless version of the Backflip that was shown at CES. The whole general aesthetic, Android build (1.5) and software skin (Motoblur) all fit with the Backflip.

Whatever the case, who knows if we will ever see this phone. It would fit nicely in Verizon or AT&T’s lineup. But since the first pics of this prototype device have shown up in a market far from the US, chances are we will never have it to hold and adore.

Dell unveils Mini 5 tablet prototype

Everybody is outing their tablets. Dell has unveiled the latest prototype of the Dell Mini 5 Tablet. The new device features a 5-inch touchscreen display with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and a front facing camera.

Some other specs include WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity and the Dell Mini 5 runs the Android 1.6 operating system. We should have more updates on this one soon, so stay tuned.

Touchscreen BlackBerry Bold-esque prototype caught on camera

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2010

Would you be interested in a BlackBerry Bold with a touchscreen? That doesn’t exist yet, but apparently RIM is toying with the idea. Some leaked pictures of a BlackBerry prototype have show off a Bold-esque device with…you guessed it, a touchscreen.

Word is that this design has been ditched for something better, though some of us would be happy with this one. So we have no idea when we can expect a touchscreen BlackBerry with a physical QWERTY keyboard, but it’s nice to know they are on it.

Motorola Droid Prototype on Ebay?

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2009

Motorola Droid Prototype on Ebay?Looks like Ebay’s latest interesting thing is this Motorola Droid prototype, if turns out to be the real thing. The seller says that the phone is a “limited edition,” and one of only five prototypes produced. Not that we automatically take this guy at his word.

However there are some differences that indicate that this phone differs from the standard Droid. Like the keys being silver instead of gold, the bezel is chrome and the LED lighting on the buttons is enhanced.
