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.

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.

We talked about the free one year trial release of Windows 7 (RC) available for download for all users from Microsoft on Monday. We’d just like to update everyone who have been interested that the RC is now up and accessible by everyone. While we (as well as everyone else) thought that Microsoft would allow the Windows 7 RC to run on users’ PCs after installation until the 1st of June, 2010, we’ve now learnt more about how this will work.

Essentially this downloadable free Windows 7 RC will be a ticking time bomb! Beginning on March 1, 2010, the operating system will begin an annoying ritual of shutting down every two hours! If you’re using one of the beta versions of Windows 7, the hourly shutdown game starts much sooner, on July 1, 2009!

For those who are not disturbed by this and don’t mind trying it out, the download link is below…
