    Leaked: HTC's handset releases for the first half of 2010

    If HTC's trying to keep their device releases top-secret, they're not doin' a very good job. While individual leaks seem to be rare, they seem to be making a habit out of bundling up all their upcoming releases into one big presentation, which in turn leaks all over the internet. It happened right at the beginning of 2009 and, sure enough, it looks like the first half of 2010 has already been… Read More

  • ChromeOS spotted with dock and other blurry UI elements

    ChromeOS spotted with dock and other blurry UI elements

    A blurry snapshot of ChromeOS has surfaced showing a new, Mac-like dock and some battery and wireless notifiers in the bottom corner. This OS looks so stripped down compared to other OSes we’ve used that we’re loathe to call it anything more than a shell. However, we all love us some Google so let’s just stare at it for a while while we eat our Subway sub. Read More

  • Windows 7 guarantee program starting June 26 at Best Buy

    Windows 7 guarantee program starting June 26 at Best Buy

    A leaked memo has outed June 26 as the starting date when Best Buy (and possibly other places, if this is a Microsoft-blessed program) will guarantee a free copy of Windows 7 at its launch if you buy a Vista-based system immediately. The memo itself is actually a bit catty, saying that Windows 7 isn't just a "Vista that works" — cold as ice, Best Buy. But the point of that little crack is… Read More

    How did the world get a workprint of X-Men Origins yesterday? Blame terrorists

    I was perusing the Internet yesterday and found something unusual: a movie that was to be released on May 1 instead appeared, in very high quality yet with glaring problems. The movie was X-Men Origins: Wolverine and it featured a certain very hirsute Australian actor playing a guy with claws. That’s all I’ll say. Not to be hyperbolic, we are witnessing the rise of media terrorism. Read More

    New edumacational ‘Welch’ netbooks coming in May from Dell?

    Kids! Get ready for back to school already! An anonymous troublemaker leaked these colorful product shots to Gizmodo showing what’ll be called the Dell Latitude 2100 series of netbooks. Specs will apparently include all the standard 10-inch netbook fare – 1.6GHz Atom CPU, up to 2GB of RAM, three- and six-cell batteries, sub three-pound weight – and they’ll be positioned at students, with… Read More

    Is this Sony’s upcoming netbook?

    The above image may or may not be a netbook-type computer from Sony. According to some mysterious FCC documents (which, conveniently, I can’t find anywhere were found by charliex using something called “the Google”) there are two separate model numbers — the PCG-1P1L and the PCG-1P2L – and tests have been performed on Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 3G data connections (EVDO… Read More

    Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to Best Buy on December 7th for $799, unlocked?

    It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 might almost be here. BGR has some shots of Best Buy’s internal stock showing a December 7th in-stock date and an unlocked selling price of $799. That’s a lot of coin, so we can only assume that it’ll be the greatest phone in the history of cellular telephony, right? Read More

  • Man arrested in connection with 100 stolen copies of Gears of War 2, Fable II

    Man arrested in connection with 100 stolen copies of Gears of War 2, Fable II

    Wow, Gears of War 2 has now leaked and can be found all over the place. I just checked Usenet, and it’s there waiting for you.

    LG KC780 promo shots make their way out

    Believe it or not, that LG KC780 we saw last week isn’t just a really blurry looking handset. GSM Arena managed to scrounge up the above promo shot, offering a much sharper look at the KC780 in all of its 8 megapixel glory. While their source wasn’t able to share any new specs, they did mention that LG is internally acclaiming the handset as the slimmest of the 8-megapixel bunch. Does… Read More

    It’s barely even lunch time, and the HTC Dream rumor mill is already churnin’ away at full force. Just minutes ago, an insider involved with the development of Android confirmed to us that the HTC Dream will set you back just $200 bucks after contract.
