    Uh Oh: Asus Tablets May Not Ship Till Summer, Will Not Have Android 3.0

    Remember when we went to Asus’s CES press conference, and they showed us several nice-looking tablets, all of which we were told would run Android 3.0? I sure remember, because I was there. As it turns out, that might have been — there’s no polite way of putting it — a straight-up lie. Read More

    Nintendo 3DS Countdown: One More Hands-On Before The Storm

    You forget about some of the fun stuff you’ve seen after having spent an entire week fighting crowds in Las Vegas while sick and tired. And I do mean sick and tired: I was sick flying into Las Vegas (you know the sharp, stabbing pain you get in your ears when your airplane descends from the heavens while sick?

    Quick Hands-On: Fujifilm's Gorgeous X100


    Oh man, I was so pumped to get my hands on this thing. This is the beautiful retro-styled, APS-C sensored, dial-covered compact camera we heard about a few months back, and immediately fell in love with. It’s got a “hybrid viewfinder” that either works as a regular see-through thing with overlay, or you can flip a switch and it becomes an EVF. Plus, just look at that sucker. Read More

    OCOSMOS Win7 Gaming Handheld Is Actually Kind Of Exciting

    So what the heck is this? It’s a Windows 7 “handheld” with a dual Intel processor and it’s designed for “gaming” including PC and mobile games. It also runs Office. The company has thus far been famous for virtually nothing and they make smartphones and game controllers. We’ll be taking a look at it later this week. Burning question: Does it play Crysis?

    In what only can be described as the Dyson Nano, the DC35 gives you the power of an upright vacuum with the guts of the gun-like DC31.

    CES 2011: Let The Boredom Begin!

    It’s been a tough few years for the CE industry.

It’s hard out there for a Samsung, Sony, HP, Dell, etc. Read More
