Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 26th, 2011

Looks like the FCC has already torn apart Nokia’s new MeeGo development phone. And it looks like the rumors of watered-down N9 specs are true, except for a 12-megapixel camera, which is a nice addition.

The N950′s official specs list an 8-megapixel camera, so this is certainly a bonus. And the N950 obviously has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The non-user-accessible BL-4D battery is lower capacity than the N9, at 1,320 mAh.

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 7th, 2011

The chip is a Qualcomm MDM660 chip that supports HSPA+ data rates up to 14.4 Mbps, and is the same chip used in the Droid Pro. So the chip technically supports both GSM and CDMA, although Apple has decided not to take advantage of that capability for whatever their reasons are.

iFixit Boxee Teardown

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2010

No gadget is safe from a teardown from iFixit. Now they have dismantled the new Boxee. So what did the teardown reveal? Well, a lot of the internal component space is taken up by the huge heatsink needed to cool the Boxee Intel CE4110 processor, the 1GB of RAM, 1GB of flash memory, and a digital-to-analog audio converter.

So in the end, iFixit gave the Boxee a repair score of 7 /10, since the separate power board can be replaced independently from the motherboard, should it ever fail and need to be replaced.
