    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 FCC… Read More

    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?

That's right, a device that is not yet in anyone's hands now has its own bookstore. All sarcasm… 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 other… 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, though… 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 cakewalk. According to… 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, not… 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 a… Read More
