  • New Xbox 360 bundle incoming? Smaller, 250GB HDD, Project Natal built-in.

    Full credit to Microsoft: it’s still got people paying top-dollar for its nearly five-year-old Xbox 360. It’s gonna need to sweeten the deal, though, to keep people a-buyin’. Like, say, a new bundle? Maybe a bundle with a thinner 360 and built-in Project Natal? Sounds about right. Read More

  • WSJ: Verizon iPhone hitting this summer


    The rumor mill is churning today as news of a CDMA iPhone running on Verizon will be manufactured by Pegatron in China while a whole new AT&T model, made by Foxconn, will also drop in the summer/fall timeframe. the Journal notes that the two new devices will be exactly the same except, obviously, the CDMA version will lack a SIM card. We’ve seen weird leaks of an iPhone 4G… Read More

  • Apple set to release 27-inch LED display, 12-core Mac Pro

    12 cores may sound impressive, but as rumored, it’s likely just two of the latest six-core i7s working in tandem. Actually, now that I think about it, that is pretty impressive. I can’t think of who would need such ridiculous power and multi-threading, but I know my friends in ultra-HD video and effects can’t get enough Hz. I don’t know if programs like After Effects… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Slim on the way?

    Some rumors are swirling regarding a possible “slim” version of the Xbox 360. And why not? The console being sold is the same one they were selling… wow, is it more than four years ago now? Of course, the ones they sell now run a little cooler, and don’t have an enormous failure rate, so there’s that. And with the pressure on from the PS3 Slim and… well, a… Read More

  • The Nintendo DS2 is coming! The Nintendo DS2 is coming!

    So here’s a quick rundown on what’s going on with the new Nintendo DS, tentatively called the DS2 but, knowing Nintendo, they’ll probably call it the WiiDSBoard2Screen or something. The first improvement is an almost bezel-less set of two screens, so close together that they can act as one. It will also have an accelerometer and the dev kit is out and folks are currently… Read More

  • Acer looking to launch super thin laptop with ‘touch keyboard’ this year?

    Touchscreen keyboard sentiment can be divided into two camps: those who don’t mind it and those who can’t do without a physical keyboard. If you’re part of the first camp, you may be excited to hear that Acer might just be working on a notebook so thin that it uses a frameless screen and touch keyboard, according to DigiTimes.

  • Nikon teasing an EVIL camera?

    To Canon shooters, all Nikon cameras are evil. But none are truly EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens). That may change soon, if the current tease campaign underway in France is any indication. These little cards, counting down to March 5th if we assume one per business day — coincidentally, Nikon has scheduled a press conference in the UK for that very day! So far, the… Read More

  • Rumors a-swirling: Canon to put out revised 1D, L lenses next week?

    Canon appears to have an actual sieve in charge of holding their secrets, since not a day goes by that I don’t hear about this or that new patent or camera just around the corner. Maybe it’s just their canny marketing division seeding leak sites, and if so, bravo. But to business: if you are a millionaire, this is probably a post for you, since everything involved is high-end. I… Read More

  • Android updates fly off the shelves; Motorola CLIQ up next in March?

    Android updates appear to be getting thrown left and right recently, so it doesn’t surprise me that the Motorola CLIQ may be due for a tune-up. According to Boy Genius Report, the CLIQ will be getting Android 2.1 OS sometime in March. Perhaps it’s not soon enough for those CLIQ owners who are turning a little green watching as DROID and Nexus One owners enjoy the latest and greatest. Read More

  • Pretty random rumor: Sony plans to re-launch the PSP Go with price cut, marketing blitz

    My idea of market research is to browse various message boards to get a sense of what the people think. I recently found myself on a PSP message board—I’m a baller, you see—and discovered that the kids there (I assume they’re kids) now refer to the PSP Go as the PSP No. So yeah, Sony would do well to re-launch that bad boy.

  • Predictable rumor: Activision looking to bring DJ Hero to mobile platforms

    The rumor: Activision is looking to bring DJ Hero to mobile devices. You can assume the iPhone would be among the platforms supported. The facts: DJ Hero didn’t do too well, but Activision put a hell of a lot of money into it, so it wants to make as much of that back as possible. Read More

  • Media Markt, German retailer, leaks iPad name and price? (no)

    Media Markt is large German retailer with, it seems, an overactive Twitter account (and, it must be said, a very red website). Netbooknews.de claims they caught them in the act of tweeting the name and price of the upcoming Apple Tablet. I’ll not tease you. It says iPad, and the price is €499 with a €120/month T-Mobile contract or €899 without. Hmm. I’m thinking nein. Read More

  • All of Pentax's PMA offerings revealed, I-10 probably the only interesting one

    Well ride with me across the Spanish countryside and call me Sancho Panza: All of Pentax’s Optio cameras have leaked before PMA, revealing very little except a few simple specs for the I-10, H90, and E-90 lines. The I-10, shown here, is very retro with a 5x wide zoom and a 12.1 megapixel sensor. It’s in the Canon G10 vein, with a bit more apparent ruggedness. Read More

  • All the iPhone4/iSlate rumors in one image


    Good old Steve just put up a great graphic detailing all of the possible rumors about whatever the heck Apple is releasing whenever it will release it. Rumors include the “glowing Apple logo” as well as a “touch sensitive case.” I think the iSlate will also give worms to ex-girlfriends. Click to embiggen. Read More

  • Rumor: iPhone Boot Camp listserv confirms January 27th event?

    This just came in through the tip line purporting to know for certain that the iSlate event will happen at the Yerba Buena Center in San Fran on January 27th, just as others have reported. The agenda should include a new SDK (probably iPhone/iSlate 4.0) and that most iPhone apps presumably run on the iSlate. n addition to the introduction of the iTablet hardware recent rumors have said that a… Read More

  • Rumor: Canon to put a "3D" model between 5D and 1D

    Before we actually discuss the rumor, let me just say that having a product called 3D is misleading when it’s not actually 3D in any way but that it exists in a three-dimensional space. Really. People these days hear “3D” and they don’t think “Hmm, like the 5D?” — no, they think “OMG Avatar!” So keep that in mind, Canon. But as for the… Read More

  • Some dude: Foxconn is making the next iPhone

    If you’ve been following my CrunchGear in China posts, you’d know that leaks out of companies like Foxconn are usually pump and dump situations. Well, some dude twooted that Foxconn is making the next-gen iPhone. Anyone want to comment on what could be happening here? Read More

  • The Google Phone Is Very Real. And It's Coming Soon

    The debate over Droid v. iPhone rages on, but lots more Android surprises are on the way. Get ready for the Google Phone. It’s no longer a myth, it’s real. The next “super” Android device will almost certainly be a HTC phone that’s much thinner than even the Droid or iPhone – The Dragon/Passion. This is the phone the senior Android guys at Google are now… Read More

  • Rumor: Walmart selling $199 Xbox 360 with $100 gift card on Saturday?

    Well what have we here? It seems that a “retail tipster” sent Kotaku the following inventory screen showing this potentially enticing deal: an Xbox 360 Arcade system for $199 “with $100 GC.” Let’s pretend for fun that “GC” means “gift card” shall we? Read More
