    Is this the Google Phone? Begin salt grain preparation

    Although it appears that there won’t be any one singular Google Phone, there have apparently been some murmurings around the interconnected network that Chinese device manufacturer “E28″ has developed a phone that “has been pegged as being the likely core of the Gphone, with Google’s suite of applications closely integrated.” The thing runs Linux. Okay great. It… Read More

    Google Phone announcement expected in next two weeks says WSJ

    The Google Phone has replaced the iPhone. What I mean by that is all the rumors, innuendo and general nonsense that surrounded the iPhone will now be transplanted to the Google Phone. Today’s rumor comes to us by way of the Wall Street Journal. Sometime in the next two weeks, so the rumor goes, Google will announce a suite of software and “services,” whatever those are… Read More

    Rumors suck: No HD-DVD Xbox any time soon

    That rumor from not long ago about Xbox getting Toshiba’s HD-DVD players? Not so fast, says Toshiba, even though that was the source of the original rumor. And so says Microsoft. Ah, but we can dream, can’t we? Toshiba says no to new Xbox 360 HD DVD rumour [Stuff.tv] Read More

  • CG Exclusive: Samsung F700-variant coming to Verizon

    CG Exclusive: Samsung F700-variant coming to Verizon

    Don’t ask us when or where or how we know this, but Samsung’s much-drooled-after F700 will be hitting Verizon (so, yes, a CDMA version, which is smaller we’ve been told), probably by year’s end. As Peter Ha said so eloquently, I WANT THIS PHONE! It has a fullscreen touchscreen and fold-out QWERTY keyboard. Read More

  • New, tiny MacBook Pros this Month? Probably not

    New, tiny MacBook Pros this Month? Probably not

    There’s a rumor flying around the Interwebs that on Leopard Day, October 26th, Apple would be launching an ultraportable MacBook Pro. As the rumor goes, it’d be in the form factor of a MacBook, but have all the MacBook Pro professional-grade hardware. We’re saying it’s total horsecrap. While the MacBook Pro (like the MacBook) line is due for an upgrade (especially the… Read More

    Halo 3 helped sell 450K Xbox 360s in September

    Confirming what everyone in the world already knew, or assumed to know, a Wedbush Morgan analyst has said that Halo 3 was at least partially responsible for moving 450,000 Xbox 360s during the month of September. In dollars-and-cents, the game generated some $200 million for Microsoft. (All of these numbers are the analyst’s predictions; verifiable NPD numbers should be released within the… Read More

  • Rolex will never do a phone, LG or otherwise

    Rolex will never do a phone, LG or otherwise

    I may not be a smart man, but I do know watch companies and there is no way Rolex and LG are teaming up to make a phone. It appears that TechDigest got to see a “Rolex” mock-up at an LG design facility with a real Rolex watch embedded in the phone face. Rolex has too much time, money, and goodwill invested in its brand to even consider trying something like this — let Armani and… Read More

  • Watch out Apple, 'cause Dell has an XPS up its sleeve

    Watch out Apple, 'cause Dell has an XPS up its sleeve

    Apparently, Dell is coming out with some ultra-portable Macbook killer that’s due out by year’s end blah blah blah, you know the deal. What matters are the specs and unique features, because if this Dell XPS M1530 doesn’t pack anything worthwhile, it has no chance of overtaking Apple’s Macbook in terms of popularity. Luckily, the specs have been leaked like a faucet in… Read More

    Apple Fairy: high-def AppleTV content coming soon

    According to the Apple Fairy, close relative of the Fat Nano Fairy, there’s gonna be a pretty substantial update to iTunes sometime this month that’ll help to bring AppleTV back from the teetering edge of extinction. Apple has apparently placed a gargantuan order for more AppleTV units in anticipation for the upcoming “iTunes HD” or whatever it’ll be called. The name… Read More

    Leopard to be released on October 26, says someone

    October has arrived, so where is Leopard? Rumblings inside Apple indicate that the company will make several big announcements between October 22 and 27. Even better, word on the street is that Apple will release Leopard on October 26. Mark your calendars. Even though Leopard hasn’t gone gold yet, all but one of the bugs have been worked out. Don’t worry, I’ll be cruising Usenet… Read More

 
  • Could be: BlackBerry 9000 to have stateside 3G, due early next year

    Could be: BlackBerry 9000 to have stateside 3G, due early next year

    Some spotty details on the upcoming BlackBerry 9xxx for you this Zune-tastic Wednesday. (Zune-tastic in that there’s been a lot of Zune news, not that I’m pro or against Microsoft, the Zune, Zune 2, or any of its subsidiaries or shareholders.) Does full-on, HSDPA 3G sound good to you? What about a 600MHz processor, hopefully eliminating the lag that plagues certain BlackBerry models? Read More

    Zune Phone Commeth: "Not so fast," J Allard

    We know the Zune Phone is coming. It has to. MS is having a pretty hard time in the cellphone market, as Windows Mobile is anything but aweome. Sure, it sells, but who goes shopping for a WinMo phone? You take what you can get. And it’s hardly as profitable as it could be. What MS needs is a hit of a handset, something to fight back at the iPhone. We all know this, and the Zune is a great… Read More

  • Rumor: Vizio Set to Branch Out? DVR, Home Theater Set-ups Coming?

    Rumor: Vizio Set to Branch Out? DVR, Home Theater Set-ups Coming?

    OK, when I first got wind of this rumor a couple days ago, I dismissed it. It’s something that I chalked up to background chatter. The thing is, I got a second email today from another source who’s always been right, so now this thing is looking more like a real deal. Rumormonger One told me that Vizio, you know, the HDTV guys, were getting ready to build hard drives into their TVs. Read More

    Rum0r: $400, 40GB PS3 on November 16?

    AP image Could a $399, 40GB PS3 be on the way in time for the holidays? Well, sure it could, but now people are connecting the dots, citing internal sources and playing out scenes from the movie “All The President’s Men” in the process. Sony recently filed a patent that describes a new model of the PS3. Everything that makes the PS3 worth owning—Blu-ray, wireless… Read More

    Rumorrrr: GameStop to stop selling Core Xbox 360, new version on deck?

    Rumor has it that GameStop—a small chain of mom and pop video game stores—will no longer stock Core Xbox 360s once the current supply dries out. Further still, managers have been told by Mr. and Mrs. GameStop to remove any and all signage relating to the Core. There was a rumor floating around during the summertime suggesting that MDOLLARSIGN was planning to scrap the Core altogether… Read More
