Sony confirms disc-free PS3 Netflix for US this month

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

Finally, you will be able to watch movies on Netflix with your PS3, disc free! In the comments section of a recent entry on the official US PlayStation blog, Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein confirmed that a Netflix app is headed to US owners of the PlayStation 3.

This will happen sometime this month. US users should check the PlayStation Store for the app anytime now. Reports suggest that Canadian PS3s are getting it earlier than expected as well. Canadians do not have a mail-order DVD option, their service is exclusively a streaming one.

Android is most popular OS among US phone buyers over the last six months

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on October 5th, 2010

Android’s huge growth has now been illustrated by Nielsen’s statisticians in the above chart of recent US smartphone purchases. It shows very clearly that over the six months leading up to August 2010, 32 percent of American new phone buyers have bought a device with Google’s OS on board.

Android is comfortably ahead of RIM at 26 percent and Apple at 25 percent. These results seem to confirm NPD’s figures, which have Android at 33 percent of new US purchases. Android is indeed dominating.

Gold-dispensing ATMs coming to the US

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

It’s about time. I can’t tell you how many times I have wished that I could grab a bar of gold from an ATM machine. But now Florida and Las Vegas residents will be able to do just that, as they are getting hundreds of these ATMs installed next year.

They will spit out smaller bars, not Fort Know sized bars. We’re talking 1 and 5 gram sizes; 10 gram and 28 gram (1 ounce) bars, and international coins from countries like South Africa, Australia and Canada, with the gold price being checked six times an hour.

Nintendo 3DS ships in Japan February 26, US and Europe in March

Posted in Uncategorized by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

This puts an end to the rumored prices and launch dates for the 3DS and makes things official. Nintendo just announced a February 26 ship date in Japan for ¥25,000 (about $298). It will hit the US and Europe in March for an unknown amount.

Launch colors are two flavors. Aqua blue or cosmo black. At a press event in Japan, Nintendo demonstrated the ability to take your picture using the 3DS’ front-facing camera and then automatically converting the image into a Mii. If you like, you can then edit it using Mii Studio on the 3DS. Images can then be exported as QR codes in wireless “tag mode” or as a file to the bundled 2GB SD card.

Netflix CEO looking into streaming-only option for US

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on September 23rd, 2010

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, in a blog post says, “we are looking at adding a streaming-only option for the USA over the coming months.” That’s an interesting idea, but sadly he didn’t elaborate. No prices were discussed.

However, it would likely parallel Canada’s streaming-only plan, which is $7.99 monthly. So who wants to drop physical media in exchange for that price or at least one extra dollar per month?

Motorola Defy confirmed for T-Mobile US

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on September 13th, 2010

Motorola has confirmed a North American version of the Defy for T-Mobile. The rugged Android phone will ship by the holidays and is also getting some show time on the Oprah Winfrey Show today apparently. It’s being called a US exclusive for the carrier.

The Defy is one of the first touch-only phones to be designed this rugged. It has resistance to dust, scratching and water, and is also the fastest with an 800MHz TI OMAP chip. It runs Android 2.1 with the full Motoblur social networking layer on top and currently only supports Flash Lite for a plugin. It also has a typical 3.7-inch display, a five-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi, but its outdoorsy design gives it a dual microphone that reduces wind noise and other background sounds.

Dell Streak to hit the US tomorrow

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2010

Dell’s Streak tablet device has been available across the pond for awhile now and soon it will be our turn. Soon as in tomorrow. That’s when the Dell Streak tablet will be hitting American shores. This confirms our earlier news of a late July release for the Streak in the US.

Dell has now updated the Streak’s pre-order page to read “Our Dell Streak pre-sale sign-up opportunity is no longer available. Please visit www.dell.com/streak tomorrow to purchase your Dell Streak.”

Dell Streak to be available in late July in the US

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2010

The Dell Streak is so well known it’s as if it’s been available in the US for some time now. In fact, it’s odd that we still don’t have a US release date for Dell’s Streak. Dell isn’t talking.

However, the company’s US product page has been updated to say: “available for purchase in late July.” It would have been nice to get more of a heads up, but at least it is already late July, making your wait a small one.

Samsung Wave shipping in the US, $499 unlocked

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

Holy crap. What’s with that model’s eyes? She looks like she is about to sprout vampire teeth and drink my blood. Probably without even having hot vampire sex with me. Would you buy a phone from her? It’s creepy. It’s like I’m being threatened to buy or else her and her husband, the Joker will have their way with me while Batman watches.

Anyway, the Samsung Wave has already hit the UK last month, but folks in the US have yet to get their hands on it. Now Amazon is offering the smartphone to US customers for $440 without a contract commitment.

Dell Streak Tablet hits the US in late Summer with AT&T

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2010

Also known as the Mini 5, the Streak will be launching first in Europe with O2 Telefonica, and then “later this summer” with AT&T in the States, according to CEO Michael Dell. NOT on a Baseball field, wearing nothing but a cap.

Dell showed the device off at the Citrix Synergy conference. We know that it runs Android, but they won’t say which version it will actually be. Screen-size is a 5-inch capacitive display, and there’s also be a 5-megapixel camera.

Posted in internet radio by Conner Flynn on May 3rd, 2010

Pure has been a stranger to the US market, which is a real shame since they have some of the sexiest internet radios ever produced. A while back, the company announced that would be changing soon and now we know when.

The Evoke Flow, Oasis Flow and Seista Flow will all be available in the United States on the first of July, with prices set at $229, $249 and $139 respectively. Initially, they’ll be available through Pure’s website alone and we hope at stores soon after.

The black version is identical to the white one except for the color. The bundle includes the Wii, a Wii remote and Wii Sports, along with a copy of Wii Sports Resort and a Wii MotionPlus upgrade. All for $199.

Posted in Pentax by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2010

Pentax often offers multicolored DSLR cameras, but they’re usually available outside of the US. But now Pentax is offering several new colors for its K-x DSLR camera.

The camera is currently available in black or red, but will soon be joined by green, blue, orange and purple. The camera will cost you $650, and specifications will be exactly the same no matter what the color. Some of those specs include a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor, 720p video recording and 4.7FPS burst shots.

Nintendo Wii Classic Controller Pro hits the US

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2010

If you own a Wii and are still playing it, you’ll be happy to know that the Classic Controller Pro is now available in the US. The controller features another row of shoulder buttons and ergonomically friendly grips to help you, well, keep a grip.

It can also be plugged straight into the Wii Remote controller for wireless connectivity with the Wii. This classic blast from the past comes in either black or white. We aren’t sure which games it works with, but we know that it works with over 450 Wii, WiiWare and Virtual Console games.

Sony Ericsson Satio hits the US

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

If you’ve been waiting for the Sony Ericsson Satio, you’ve been waiting for quite a while. Lucky for you the wait is over. It’s now readily available at Sony Style stores in the US. You can get it unlocked for $650. It’s been awhile as this phone was announced almost a year ago.

After such a long wait, the specifications are pretty much mid-range at this point. The 12-megapixel camera has to be the main factor.
