This is definitely the world’s first. The Spanish technology company iUnika announced last week a series of lightweight and eco-friendly netbooks. While it must be admitted that these are not suited for those keen on gaming, the GYY netbooks would just about do everything else the average user requires.
To hit the European market this summer, in June. The netbooks come with a low energy demanding 400MHz CPU, 128MB of RAM, an 8-inch screen a max resolution of 800×400 and a 64GB SSD drive. Although the iUnika GYY netbooks don’t seem to be capable of pushing out much juice, one thing is for sure, it does have quite a large capacity of memory for a netbook.
We will still need to confirm whether this will be a Japan exclusive. But for 398,000 Yen (that’s €3080, £2758 or $4180) the latest in technology 19.5mm x 25.5mm Toshiba Dynabook SS RX2/WAJ sports a Core 2 Duo SU9400 (1.40GHz) processor, 3GB of RAM, Intel GS45 Express, DVD Super Multi and a 12.1” WXGA LCD and a 512 GB SSD (may be that’s what the price is for?). Of course, along with this price tag you will also get WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, etc. According to Toshiba, this massive 512 GB SSD runs eight times faster than a 5400rmp 2.5” HDD.

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.
Straight after the Easter long weekend, Nikon has now announced the recently much rumored D5000. With a 2.7-inch articulating display, the D5000 is equipped with a 12.3 megapixel DX-format sensor that maxes out at ISO 3200 with a 4fps burst rate, sports one-button Live View, and 720/24p movie mode. Other features include an 11-point AF system with 3D focus tracking and 19 scene modes. With a number of high end features, the price tag is pretty heavy as well, the D5000 will cost $849 with a 18-55 VR kit lens, or $729 for just the body – not surprisingly, this price tag is just under that of the Canon T1i.
In this second part of our review of the LBT-DJ2i, we’ll take you through some of our thoughts on the system’s design, features and usability. If you remember when we showed you the hands on video in part 1 of our review. You will notice that the LBT-DJ2i isn’t designed to be like a mini stereo hi-fi system, instead it’s been designed and equipped with hardware suited even for hosting music at large party venues and events.
Check out some leaked pictures of the Motorola RUSH 2, one of the four phones Moto said late last year that they would be depending on to bring them back into the game (where they didn’t literally say it). For now, the pictures only indicate that they will be arriving the US, as its got a Verizon badge on it but who knows where else it might turn up. To me I don’t believe this will be an expensive phone, neither do I believe Motorola will be able to put a big price tag on it by the way it looks. No offence to any Motorola fans but the RUSH 2 as pictured doesn’t look like the prettiest phone compared to lots others on the market at the moment, but maybe it sports some exciting technology?
