Just bought Kindle 2? I’m sorry, its just been a few months but Amazon has decided that a new Kindle with a larger 9.7 inch is to be launched. Amazon has finally announced their price tag for its latest black and white Kindle reading device – the Kindle DX, which will be priced at $489. Amazon is now taking pre-orders of the Kindle DX, shipping date has been said to be this coming summer, however, exact details remain vague.
The DX sports a larger, more comfortable 9.7-inch screen that can rotate to landscape display, its also a PDF reader (amongst a large number of other document formats that it is capable of reading). The Kindle DX also comes with more storage space at 3.3GB.

When you think of netbooks, a large majority of them are tiny laptops built based on a nasty block of plastic, with no elegance to it whatsoever. ASUS’ new Eee PC 1002HAE (consider it an upgrade from the 1002HA) is abit different. The 1002HAE has an exterior aluminum skin which gives an added advantage of shedding half a pound of weight from 1.45kg to 1.2kg. While its main specs remain much the same – 1.6GHz N280 processor, 802.11b/g/n, 1GB of memory and 160GB disk, 1.3 megapixel webcam, memory card slot, 3.8-hour Li-Polymer battery, and 10-inch 1,024 x 600 pixel LED backlit display.
I can’t help it wondering why this video hasn’t got any sound, or is it just my problem? Anyhow, some readers have emailed in saying how short the last clips of the new Samsung LED TV we showed were, so here’s a new one we just found which should satisfy anyone’s curiosity in this awesome new telly. The video from YouTube was embedded in HD…
Check out this recent hands on video of the new Sony X Series Walkman from Engadget. We know you all love your OLEDs, the NWZ-X1050 sports OLED touch screen and you will see the difference it makes in the vid below. While it is an evaluation unit (from Japan?), the NWZ-X1050 is now already available in Japan and Asia. We don’t expect there to be much difference when the X1050 eventually arrives here in the UK or the US.
If you’re interrested in finding out about how the X1050′s OLED touchscreen works, hit the jump and check out a graphical material from Sony.
Vertu are well known for making phones with elegant designs and a huge price tag and China are well known for making the exact same look-a-likes but literally priceless (and worthless). So this is what I suppose results when the Chinese decides to create a fake phone called the Lamborghini Vertu phone to rival against a Ferrari Vertu phone. By the way, this is literally a phone fake, because its not a clone, its completely original! You could give the Chinese for creating something original with their own design this time.
For those of you who care to know what the specs on board this phone fake are. There’s a camera, media player, FM radio, Bluetooth support, and of course a microSD memory card slot. In terms of size, the fake Vertu Ferrari phone has dimensions of 95×35×15 mm and weight of 102 grams.
Not very long after the Magic arrives, it looks like HTC and Google have been busy. Here’s a snapshot that’s been leaked featuring the HTC “Hero”.
