    Canonical Seeks $32M To Build A Ubuntu Smartphone Designed For Converged Computing

    Ubuntu Mobile isn’t new; Canonical has already done much to promote its efforts to break into the smartphone mobile software space. But today the company is launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund the development of its first own-branded Ubuntu mobile hardware, the Ubuntu edge. The Edge is a smartphone that hopes to be more than that, by replacing a desktop PC as well. Read More

    What Games Are: Why The Xbox’s $5 Problem Is Great For OUYA

    The news that next-generation consoles may lock games to devices is not controversial by itself, but the willingness to price those games effectively is not historically a strength of Microsoft or Sony. More likely a have-cake-and-eat-it attitude is at play, but that risks driving away younger players to microconsoles like the OUYA. Read More

    Adobe Launches Its Edge Tools & Services For Designers And Developers, Previews Edge Reflow

    This morning during its Create the Web event in San Francisco, Adobe officially launched its set of HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript-focused Edge Tools & Services offering for designers and developers.

  • Mix-Up Or Must-Buy Phone? Motorola May Reveal Smartphone With Edge-To-Edge Screen Next Week

    Mix-Up Or Must-Buy Phone? Motorola May Reveal Smartphone With Edge-To-Edge Screen Next Week

    Motorola is dead-set on showing off some new hardware at its New York press event next week, but could it have more up its sleeve than we all expected? A handful of leaks (accidental and otherwise) have already outed the Droid RAZR M and the long-awaited RAZR HD, but Bloomberg seems to have confirmed the existence of another new Motorola handset whose description doesn’t seem to match… Read More

    Rumor: The Quad-Core HTC Edge Breaks Cover

    Dual-core processors? How passe. If the story surrounding this leaked render holds true, then HTC is already hard at work on their first quad-core powerhouse of a smartphone: the Edge. At first glance, it doesn’t look much different than any other device HTC has put out in recent memory. The Edge reportedly sports a 4.7-inch 720p display and 1GB of RAM, which is great but let’s face… Read More

  • Entourage Edge Dual-screen eBook Reader Is Dead And Gone

    We had high hopes for the Edge dual-screen ebook reader last year but it looks like said ereader is now dead. We were actually quite excited. After all, our own Scott Merrill wrote: The enTourage eDGe is a functional, easy-to-use device that currently defies formal classification. It’s primarily going to be useful to academics and people who spend a lot of time in books, but need… Read More

  • The iPad Alternatives — The 'Where Are They Now' Edition

    The iPad is the king of tablets and might hold that title for years to come. However, there are a ton of alternatives that we’ve featured over the last few months, mostly in these two posts (1 & 2) detailing the top 14. But since I ran those posts, a lot has changed and while some managed to make it to the market, others were delayed or scrapped entirely. It’s sad, really. Read More

  • Review: enTourage eDGe dualbook

    To say that the enTourage eDGe dualbook is “just an e-reader with a bolted-on netbook” (or vice versa) is to pretty dramatically miss the entire point of this thing. The eDGe exists in a category all by itself, because it does an awful lot more than just an e-reader or just a netbook. As a unique product, there are a couple of unfortunate shortcomings, but on the whole the… Read More

  • Hands-on with the Entourage eDGe dualbook

    I received the Entourage eDGe review unit the other day, and have been playing with it quite a bit. A full review is coming soon, but suffice to say that I like what I’ve seen so far. Here are a handful of photos to whet your appetite for my forthcoming review! Read More

  • Nexus One still plagued with 3G issues after OTA software patch

    Nexus One owners have been griping about the device’s 3G connectivity issue since its release, and Google felt your pain and came to the rescue (even though they did sorta blame T-Mobile’s small 3G footprint for this). Or so we thought. After releasing an over-the-air update which was intended to resolve this problem, users are still reporting bugs. Read More

  • Nexus One slated to arrive in AT&T 3G flavor

    When the Google Nexus One was announced early last month, Android fans went giddy with excitement, especially since there is an option to buy it unlocked. The only downside was that if you wanted 3G service, you were limited to T-Mobile’s decent, but smaller network. AT&T users are still out of luck and limited to EDGE speeds on the handset, but according to documents filed at the… Read More

  • enTourage eDGe dualbook gets deals with academia

    The enTourage eDGe dualbook made its official debut at CES last week, along with lots of other e-book readers, dual-screen laptops, and more. We mentioned the eDGe book store, but that book store is gaining usefulness with the announcement of deals with publishers McGraw Hill, Oxford University Press and John Wiley & Sons, which will bring a number of academic texts to the dualbook.

  • Entourage announces e-book store for eDGe dualbook

    The Entourage eDGe, the world’s first “dualbook” is a dual-screen laptop / e-book reader hybrid thingie. The laptop portion is pretty straightforward, but what about the e-book? In the already crowded e-book space, how can the eDGe compete? Well, today they’ve announced they’re very own e-book store. That’s right, a device that is not yet in anyone’s… Read More

  • It's a netbook! It's an e-reader! It's the enTourage eDGe!

    Reading e-books on a netbook is a nuisance, right? But e-readers are a pain because they’re a single-function device, which means your man-bag gets filled with yet-another-specialty-gadget. Behold the enTourage eDGe: “the world’s first dualbook, combining the functions of an e-reader, netbook, notepad, and audio/video recorder and player in one.” Read More

  • North Korea gets 3G network tomorrow

    Wikipedia Good news for those of you in North Korea! (That must be, like, zero of you. I can’t imagine the North Koreans allowing our silly, subversive site to be easily readable.) You’ll have a 3G network up and running tomorrow, thanks to Egypt’s Orascom Telecom‘s $400 million investment. The network will initially cover Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, and… Read More

  • LG Edge released in Korea, is neither "cutting edge" nor "edgey"

    If a picture of four dudes holding the phone while each demonstrates a different awkward facial expression doesn’t make you want the LG Edge (LG-SH470), nothing will. Actually, even if it does make you want the phone, you’re probably out of luck. Unless you live in Korea or select parts of Europe, this one won’t be part of your local lineup. Don’t be too crushed… Read More

  • Tiny AT&T Quicksilver USB modem looks thumbdrive-y

    At first glance, you might mistake this doodad on the left for an ordinary, run-of-the-mill thumbdrive. Don’t be fooled! It’s a 3G modem from AT&T called the USBConnect Quicksilver. If you’re a weakling, you’ll love this thing because it weighs less than an ounce. Everyone, and I mean everyone, can lift one ounce, so less than one once should be a… Read More

  • DVDO EDGE now shipping

    The latest scaler from Anchor Bay is now shipping at $799. I know, I know, the price seems a little high, but a quality scaler can improve your HDTVs picture dramatically by taking in all of your sources random resolution and presenting your the TV one, properly scaled image. Plus, the EDGE’s six HDMI inputs and four RCA-type inputs gives you some room to grow your… Read More

  • CEDIAcrunch hands-on: DVDO Edge

    DVDO has been around a while, pimping AV scalers to the affulent around us. Previously, those scalers, or upconverters, used third-party processing to accieve the amazingly, upgraded picture. Those models cost up to $3,499 though. So when the $799 Edge dropped last week, the first thing that came to mind is what the hell did they exclude. It turns out that besides component and RS-232 outputs… Read More

  • DVDO EDGE upscales everything to 1080p just for you

    DVDO has a rich heritage of fine upscalers and the companies latest is hopefully isn’t different. The EDGE takes video via six HDMI 1.3a ports, two component, one composite, or S-Vid inputs and does some internal scaling wizardry, only to send the now 1080p image over two of HDMI 1.3a outputs. If you have scoffed at scalers in the past, these are the real deal my friend. I have spent… Read More
