Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2009

ASUS WiFi, 3G and WiMAX ebook readers confirmed for March 2010We had heard that Asus was planning some ebook readers and now some new details have emerged. Executives from the company apparently confirmed that WiFi, 3G and WiMAX versions will be announced before the year is out. The ebook readers will apparently hit carrier partners in the US and Europe in March 2010, with prices that will be “competitive” with what’s offered from Amazon and Sony.

Previous rumors have ASUS readying two different sized readers, one with a 6-inch e-ink display while a second model will have a larger 9-inch panel. WiMax seems like overkill, but Asus apparently thinks it will sell well.

Sprint has offered pricing on the 4G service in these two areas. The 4G/3G data plans will sell for $69.99 per month, $10 more than comparable 3G plans. The plan includes “unlimited” data which we all know has limits; Sprint just doesn’t specify what they are at this point.

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2009

vaiop-sbLooks like the Sony VAIO P is learning some new tricks. These new processor and drive upgrades will have the Tiny PC taring up benchmarks at twice the speed of the original. Most of that improved speed comes from the SSD drive, but the Atom Z550 sure doesn’t hurt.

Over in Japan they are getting a WiMAX version, which doesn’t mean crap to us since most of the US doesn’t have WiMax coverage. As usual, Japan is always beating us.

Samsung’s first Wimax device spotted

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on March 26th, 2009

samsung-mid-with-wimax-rm-engToday Samsung shared some details on the unannounced SWD-M100 Mondi mobile Wimax device for the Clear network via their RSS feed. According to the company, the Mondi features a touch screen and can access the Internet via Clear’s mobile Wimax network.

Based on the above picture, the Mondi is a slider, with a slide-up screen that reveals a four-row QWERTY keyboard, very similar to the Nokia N810 Internet tablet. It also sports a D-pad and some function buttons on face of the device. Neither Samsung or Clear has announced this device, so we have no idea when it will be available.

Clearwire preps portable WiMax/Wi-Fi routerAccording to Sidecut Reports, Clearwire will soon unveil a portable WiMAX / WiFi router built by Cradlepoint. The prototype is pictured above. It will use a Motorola WiMAX USB stick to enable WiFi-capable devices to surf on the ultra fast WiMAX.

What this means is that non-WiMAX handsets that have WiFi modules can get into the WiMAX network using this pocket sized device. There’s no word yet on when it will ship. Also no word on price. This might be the way to go to replace that expensive cable modem at home.

Sprint 4G/3G ModemSprint isn’t in a good place right now. It’s losing customers as its service quality drops and other providers improve and Sprint’s is in a bad financial situation to boot. The cellular arm of the phone giant bet big on WiMAX and repeatedly had to scale the service back.

Art Lebedev’s Scartel WiMax handset concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on September 25th, 2008

Art Lebedev’s Scartel WiMax handset conceptArt Lebedev’s design shop is at it again, this time trying its hand at handset design. We like the results. Art is teaming up with Scartel, a Russian carrier in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The conceptual stage is looking good.

In addition to a WiMax radio, the device has WiFi, tri-band GSM, microSD, dual cameras, 3.5mm audio, an A/V plug and a huge 850 x 480 screen. The buttons are kept minimal at the base: five-way joystick and call/end, and no keypad, so it must sport a touchscreen. There’s a lot to like already. Android maybe? No word yet if it will go from concept to actual product.
