HP releases another batch of their discontinued HP TouchPad to fulfill those existing orders from their customers.

HP’s Small and Medium Business division sent out an e-mail to its customers who placed orders but did not receive shipment of the now-discontinued TouchPad. The company told its customers that it will start fulfilling their orders at the promised discounted price – $99 – in about six to eight weeks. The e-mail was sent directly at SMB customers only, and does not apply to other customers who might have unfulfilled orders from the regular home channel.

The time frame shows that the company would be fulfilling the said orders by the end of October, which is similar to the company’s stated intent of shipping a new batch of units by the end of its current fiscal quarter. HP has not yet unveiled the quantity of unfulfilled orders for the webOS tablet, but it is said that the firm or its suppliers had enough parts and inventory on hand to build at least 100,000 TouchPad.

Apple will roll out its Thunderbolt Display to market this week.

Apple is said to deliver the Thunderbolt Display to stores this week based on details that emerged on Tuesday. MacRumors said that both the official Apple stores and third-party chains should have the 27-inch screen soon. Online pre-order customers haven’t received shipping notices yet, but some details claimed that the shipping of the Thunderbolt Display will be on September 15.

The display was revealed during the unveiling of the new MacBook Air, and is being used as a full desktop docking station for portables. The 10Gbps Thunderbolt link feeds both the 2560 x 1440 display, as well as gigabit Ethernet, 2.1-channel audio, an HD webcam, FireWire 800 and three USB ports. Apple’s only separate cable for the computer is a MagSafe connector required to supply the extra power for notebooks.

Users can daisy chain as many as five other Thunderbolt devices, even though only one of those devices can be an additional Thunderbolt Display.

Though the buzz on Apple's iPad 3 gone hush over last month, it seems that the rumor mill is still in action.

Since the previous news stated that Apple’s iPad 3 will not be available until next year, the buzz about the said tablet gone a bit quiet. However, there were rumors that the device will get a Retina Display and thinner batteries and form factors.

As reported by Taiwan Economic News, Apple signed deals with Dynapack International Technology Corp. and Simplo Technology Co. for battery packs for the third-gen iPad. This will provide iPad 3 with thinner and lighter battery packs than the ones currently used in iPad 2. Moreover, it should provide a longer life for users. However, it will cost the company by up to a third more. Regardless, the thinner and lighter battery packs are anticipated to enter production during Q1 2012.

Atari Arcade Duo Powered Joystick for iPad 2

Written on September 06, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

An update to Atari's app revealed several information regarding the Atari Arcade Duo Powered joystick.

An update to Atari’s Greatest Hits app unveiled early details of the second retro arcade gaming stick for the iPad to arrive soon. The Atari Arcade Duo Powered stick, which gets support in the update, recreates the analog buttons and feel similar to the iCade but exchanges some of its vintage feel for more flexibility. Instead of redeveloping a cabinet, it represents a simpler joystick and dock combo that enables users to freely swap out the iPad.

Some details – such as how the iPad and the dock will link up, its price and shipping date – still remain unclear. Atari may still be using bluetooth or a hidden dock connector that will keep the iPad powered, and let it sit in the cradle as long as the owner likes.

The iCade costs $99, and the simpler design of the Duo Powered stick could lower its practical costs.

Best Buy Prepares for Two iPhone 5 Launches

Two stages of iPhone 5 releases on Best Buy -- for real?

Best Buy prepares itself for the launch of iPhone 5 in two stages based from two leaked information on Sunday. One discovery from a staff memo shows that the retail company expects an iPhone 5 introduction soon, along with  an “October week 1 launch.” The same BGR instance also claimed that it expects a Sprint iPhone 5 release.

Other clues potentially put the said release later. Best Buy Mobile managers are due to talk about “upcoming big release dates” on October 10 and on October 21, receiving a new “Apple fixture.” The installation described to This Is My Next wasn’t attached to the iPhone by name, but it would unusually needed a manager to be available an hour earlier than usual for inventory — similar to what happened last year for the iPhone 4.

Both tips leave room for flexibility in the release, but it support the overall expectation of a mid-October launch with Sprint added as a third US carrier. Some room exists for other devices to show in October, such as expected iPod updates, but few are likely to get the same level of attention from retail staff.

Written on September 03, 2011 by Lulu

Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6 arrives to compete against iPod Touch, as it slips out at IFA.

Hidden in the middle of Samsung’s large launches at the IFA show on Thursday was a new, smaller version of its Android-based media players. The Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6 has a more moderate 3.65-inch LCD, facing against the large AMOLED displays of its Wi-Fi 4.0 and 5.0. The device’s central home button style – that was unique in Android-based devices – continues over from their earlier model to its latest. This gives the devices an appearance similar to the iPod touch.

Android 2.3 runs with TouchWiz, reflecting the absence of phone components. Players carry either 8GB or 16GB built-in and have microSDHC slots. Europe should get the Wi-Fi 3.6 in October at prices equivalent to $242 for an 8GB model and $274 for 16GB.

Check out Samsung Galaxy Wi-Fi 3.6’s features after the jump.
