Comparison pictures of 900mAh and 1340mAh batteries [HTC DIAMOND] [Windows Mobile]

The HTC DIAMOND does not win any awards for its battery life. Let’s face it, even with average use, you won’t be able to last a full day with the stock battery, which has just 900mAh juice. HTC chose style over function on this device and I support their decision. Here is a picture of the extended battery sitting side-by-side with the stock battery.

A Celeron powered EEE-box. What?

Alright, we all know that the EEE box was launched with an Atom Processor. But, now the ASUS has now introduced a model with celeron processor. This is the same processor that is being used in the ASUS EEE 700 series and EEE 900. Everything else is similar to the one with atom processor.

Celeron is already quite old now. I see the point that that they want to keep the Atom processors for the netbooks, but using the celeron processor is not a wise move especially when the competition is getting fiercer in the netbox market too.
