OQO cancels all preorders for MODEL 2+

First we saw the disappearance of the OQO models from the expansys store and now we get the news that OQO  has canceled all the preorders for the model 2+. This further makes us think one think: Is OQO on the brink of getting bankrupt?

Clearly, UMPCs are now dying due to their huge price tags and poor demand. Companies need to realize that in such tough times, it would hard for the consumer to shell out $1000+ on a UMPC. ASUS has pretty much understood this fact that they released their tablet/UMPC at a fair price tag of $549.

I am personally not at all surprised due to the fact they were NOT able to offer satisfactory service to the customers in US or anywhere around the world. See this POST for more information about the extremely poor OQO customer support.

U2O iWalk 5400 Universal Emergency Battery Charger review

We all love using our gadgets on the go. But, the my biggest concern when I’m on the go is how long the battery of my device(s) will last. I carry a lot of gadgets on the go. This includes my Digital Camera, my Mobile Phone, bluetooth headset and bluetooth keyboard (to type some long emails on my phone).

ASUS P835 now official [Windows Mobile]

ASUS has unleashed its WVGA beauty, P835. Sporting a huge 3.5-inch WVGA (800 x 480), this new Windows Mobile device promises to give HTC some strong competition.

ASUS P835 specs review price

It looks like past mistakes have taught ASUS a bitter lesson. The previous flagship model, ASUS P565 (REVIEW), which although had the zippy 800Mhz CPU lacked on the software front. It did not even include Opera Mobile. The built-in IE mobile does a sloppy job of rendering web pages. But, in the ASUS P835, the ASUS has included Opera Mobile which is absolutely great to use on the WVGA screen.

Here are its specifications:

Windows Mobile 6.1
Quad-Band GSM
new and improved Glide user interface
528MHz Qualcomm 7201A processor
4GB internal storage
USB 2.0 connectivity
microSDHC card slot (yay!)
Bluetooth 2.0
5 MP AutoFocus camera

Also, the ASUS has finally upgraded to the USB 2.0 standard. ALL the earlier models came with only USB 1.1 support, which made the transfer painfully slow.  Another noticeable improvement is the inclusion of the 5MP camera, which makes it the first ASUS mobile phone to sport a 5MP camera and that too with autofocus capability.

ASUS has also included their own SIP (soft input panel). This is nice addition as all previous ASUS windows mobile devices lacked a finger friendly SIP. Even their now old flagship model P565 lacked a finger friendly SIP. All these additions were completely absent. We are definitely looking forward the ASUS P835.

Compared to the earlier ASUS devices, there a huge increase in RAM as-well-as ROM. Now, the user won’t have mere 50MB RAM free at startup. With the increased RAM, I see at least 120+MB RAM free at startup with Glide interface on.

Dell has come up with another netbook to add to it’s Dell Mini range. The new Dell mini 10 has built in TV tuner, a 3G WWAN, 10-inch display. It is powered by an Intel Atom Z530 processor. Just like any other netbook manufacture, Dell has not forgotten to put in a multi-touch touchpad with which you can do some exclusive Dell gestures like going back to homescreen, auto-scrolling and my Favorties

There was a gap for a 10-inch netbook from Dell. Dell mini 10 is perfect for those who found the Dell Mini 9 too small and Dell mini 12 too big. It features an excellent edge-to-edge keyboard which provides great typing experience. It comes with 802.11b/g/n and GPS too. The display has a 16:9 ratio, which makes it great for HD movies.

The release date and pricing is unkown at this moment
