Viliv S7 hits Dynamism from $629

Importers Dynamism have released pricing and specification details for the Viliv S7, the latest ultraportable touchscreen device from the Korean company.  Coming after the surprisingly popular S5 and well-received X70, the S7 adds a QWERTY keyboard and uses a more traditional netbook-style form-factor; according to Dynamism, when it drops in the US it’ll be priced from $629.

That gets you the entry-level S7 complete with Intel’s 1.33GHz Z520 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 60GB hard-drive.  Next up is the S7/32ssd, which as the name suggests switches out the HDD for a 32GB SSD, for $659.  Finally there’s the S7/32ssd/3G, which adds in an integrated HSPA modem along with the 32GB solid-state drive, for $799.  That 3G modem is expected to be voice-capable, so you could feasibly – and assuming you have deep pockets in every sense – leave your cellphone at home and rely on the S7 for calls.

No exact word on when Dynamism will get their stock in, but we’re hearing from several bloggers in North America and Europe that demo units are flying out from Viliv themselves.  That would certainly suggest that the S7 is imminent.

Intel Jasper Forest embedded Xeon CPU

Intel have been teasing with some pre-show chip information in advance of their IDF (Intel Developer Forum) kicking off September 22nd.  As well as talking up their manufacturing expertise – Intel describe themselves as “by far the most advance of any semiconductor manufacturer in the world” – they’re also tipping their upcoming Jasper Forest embedded processor platform.

intel xeon 5500

Jasper Forest will be built on 45nm processes but use 32nm technology for 27W system power savings, together with incorporating the I/O hub onto the processor.  That will allow for PCI Express 2.0 ports, RAID 5 and 6 support and Intel 3420 chipset connectivity directly from the CPU.  Intended for use in embedded, communications and storage equipment – such as routers, VoIP systems, NAS and wireless infrastructure systems – Jasper Forest offers Nehalem-based Xeon 5500-series processor performance but in a more economical, cooler package.

The first hardware partners using Jasper Forest will be revealed at the IDF, together with further detail on how Intel’s 32nm CPU processes have been certified.  CPU wafers for the company’s Westmere platform are expected to go into revenue production in Q4 2009; that will be accompanied by “smarter System on Chip” production.

Nokia N900

Nokia N900

Definitely, Nokia wants to reveal all the surprises before the Nokia World with Nokia N900. In fact, Nokia has hardly anything about his potential as a phone, which obviously does, but focuses mainly on the possibilities of Internet access, in the execution of applications and storage.


The specifications of the Nokia N900 will cause no problems to compete with other models in the market. In fact, not far removed from those who have the N97. We found a 3.5 inch touch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and, inside, an ARM Cortex-A8 processor at 600 MHz, making it compatible with OpenGL ES 2.0, therefore, with games and 3D the market.

Nokia N900

Offers 256 MB of RAM, while storage is identical to the N97, 32GB of internal memory expandable with microSD cards to 16GB. Besides the physical QWERTY keyboard sliding type of disposal, also allows its use with a virtual keyboard on screen, something that many users will appreciate.

The camera is not the most powerful with 5-megapixel, coming with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash. Do not forget either the GPS receiver compatible with A-GPS and Maps application preinstalled Ovi.

Operating System

The main innovation of the Nokia N900’s Maemo operating system 5, based on Linux, support for multiple desktops, where you can create shortcuts to contacts, and applications. In addition to installing widgets that display information to us or allow us to control some of its functions.

Nokia N900


Internet surfing will be one of the strengths of this device. This has several points of support, both in point hardware and software. For connectivity we can use the 3G support with support for HSPA, or Wi-Fi.

When browsing, the resolution of your screen will help, but also the software that integrates, as the browser is based on Mozilla code. In addition, we see the content in full screen to maximize space. To this is added support for Flash 9.4, allowing you to play videos from sites like YouTube or Vimeo.


With 32 GB of storage space and resolution, multimedia features take on special relevance. Obviously, including music players, video and photos, compatible with multiple formats and also will allow tuning to Internet radio stations.

It adds to the FM transmitter, allowing us to hear the sound through radio, DLNA compatibility, to send the content to our television and the mentioned media formats, including MP3, AAC, WMA, MP4, AVI, WMV, H.264, XviD, …

The Price and availability in the market

Although it might seem, by specifications, the price of the Nokia N900 is not an exaggeration, at least when compared with other models from this manufacturer. It will cost 500 euros before subsidies and taxes, so we might find more or less accessible to an operator and data plan is almost essential.

Nokia N900 will be from October this year when it became available and I believe that a giant step forward for Nokia. Freed from the burden of S60 and little to offer good development tools and shop applications, this phone and its successors may become serious competitors.

VIA NetNote 1080p HD

VIA have announced their latest ultraportable reference design, the NetNote, which the company describes as “a mashup between the netbook and the traditional notebook.”  Based on VIA’s Surfboard mainboards, using either VIA C7-M or Nano CPUs, the NetNotes will have screens ranging from 10.2-inches to 12.1-inches and play back Full HD 1080p video.

VIA NetNote System 540x426

Other possibilities include an HDMI port, hardware video acceleration and integrated 3G, all from VIA’s Surfboard platforms.  Positioned as an OEM solution (rather than being marketed directly to end-consumers), the NetNotes could also have an FM transmitter, digital TV receiver with extendable antenna, or even an externally-controlled MP3 player which wouldn’t require the NetNote to be booted up.

From our talks with VIA about the platform, it seems they’re not so much focussed on kick-starting a new niche with NetNotes – in fact it’s more of an internal name – but instead wanting to draw attention to netbooks with performance.  The VIA NetNote Turnkey Systems will have their formal debut at ShenZhen TechForum Autumn 2009 next week, where the company is promising 35 designs together with pricing and availability information.

Lenovo X200

The touch screen force begins to arrive at computer screens, especially the all in one and laptops. And it does, then you better do multitouch, Lenovo will have thought. They introduced the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet PC and the Lenovo ThinkPad T400s.

In both models, touch screens are optional, so we can get them also without them if needed. The Lenovo X200 comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo 1.4 GHz, 160 GB hard drive, 12.1 inch screen and, oddly, only 1 GB of RAM, although its operating system, now is Vista.

Lenovo X200

Obviously, when it launches Windows 7 this will be the option chosen for a laptop. For now, this configuration is offered for $ 1654 but will only be recommended to increase the RAM in a couple of GB more. Something can stay short the 4-cell battery included, but promise a range of up to nine hours with 8 cell.

Lenovo ThinkPad T400s

The Lenovo ThinkPad T400s has a base price of $ 1999 and comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz, 14.1-inch screen, 2 GB RAM, 120 GB hard drive and a 6-cell battery. Both models have the softare SimpleTap from October 22.

Sony NW-A840, Walkman

Sony NW A840

Sony just introduced which will probably be the best player in its Walkman range, the Sony NW-A840, which only fails him, in my opinion, the colors offered in black and brown. Browsers do not look here, touch screens or Wi-Fi, we’re talking about a media player, focusing on the audio, which does what it has to do.

Allow playback both audio and video, the latter in an OLED screen with a resolution of 400 × 240 pixels and a size of 2.8 inches. It’s not ideal for watching movies, but slightly shorter clips. If we have a small screen, the TV out lets you play at 720 x 480 pixels.

Sony has decided to finally get rid of proprietary software to upload files to their players, and this model allows drag and drop from the file browser of your computer. Thus, we can rip music in MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV and video in H.264, MPEG-4 and WMV support more than enough in most cases.

Acer G243HQ

Acer has introduced a new monitor within the high range for the domestic market. It is the Acer G243HQ, with a size of 23.6 inches and resolution of 1920 × 1080, which begins to be quite common on the monitors of upper-middle range and size from the 22 inches.

The Acer monitor has a TN type panel, 80.000:1 dynamic contrast and 2 millisecond response time, the lowest in monitors for the home. It comes fairly complete in terms of connections, because it integrates HDMI (with support for HDCP), DVI and VGA. It also includes the typical manufacturer’s own technologies, as eDisplay Management, eColor Management, and Adaptive Contrast Management.

The final prices have not yet been made public, although we expect to be much lower than the 400 euros that some are being asked by the first G24. In addition, there are already similar to the Acer G243HQ monitors but with some gaps (more response time, less dynamic contrast) for about 200 euros, approximately, but not have a copper colored frame.

Canon Powershot G11 and S90

Canon Powershot G11

Canon has introduced two advanced compact camera models. The Canon PowerShot G11 is the most prominent. Successor of the Canon G10 is featured with 10-megapixel sensor and 2.8 inch screen covers, and can also rotate. The 5x optical zoom, manual controls and support for a photograph in RAW data are other highlights of this advanced compact camera.

The lower-resolution sensor in conjunction with the Digic IV image processor promises improved dynamic range and noise at high sensitivities content in this Canon G11 goes from 80 to 3200 ISO.

The price of the Canon G11 will be around 500 euros, we do not seem so if the HDMI output had been accompanied by video footage in high definition, an absence that do not understand.

Canon Powershot S90

Caught us by surprise, the PowerShot S90. The highlight of this new model is the luminosity of its objective, f2-4.9. The zoom of 3.8 increases with an equivalent focal length of 28-105 mm.

The Canon S90 also features manual controls and use the RAW format. On the screen is 3 inches, with resolution of 460,000 pixels and HDMI port. Its price will be around 400 euros.


Mimo 720-S, 7-inch touchscreen

mimo 710-s

We had previously talked of a couple of screens Nano. These devices are characterized by small additional screens for your computer.

The Nanovision Mimo 720-S still does not launch date, but its features are already known: we are talking about 7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 800 × 480 pixels and can rotate the screen 90 degrees. Interesting connection, since this is done only via the USB cable into your computer, and without any other additional power connectors.

The Mimo 720-S will have a little sister, the 710-S to be like the 720 except the touchscreen technology.

As for prices, Mimo 720-S has not yet been put up for sale, but the 710-S can be reserved for $ 150, just over 100 euros to change. The 720-S is obviously more expensive, maybe around $ 250.


Samsung WB5000 with 24x zoom

Samsung WB5000

Without being a DSLR, the Samsung WB5000 some features that are often more typical of these, but with one point more than outstanding, an incredible 24x zoom magnification equivalent to a 26-624 mm, with its Schneider-Kreuznach lens.

Also lets you take photos in RAW format and has a full manual mode, to reflect the most to our liking and take maximum advantage of its possibilities. That it also offers other features more typical of the compact, such as face recognition or automatic mode intelligent.

The sensor resolution is about WB5000 Samsung increasingly amazing 12.5 mega pixels, but we like even more to offer the possibility to record movies in high definition.

So far the Samsung WB5000 has not been officially announced, so it is unknown what the approximate price of this model and when it will release, but these data should arrive during the fourth quarter.


ViewSonic PJD2121 Compact Projector

viewsonic PJD2121

ViewSonic PJD2121 model can create images with sizes up to 60 inches although the projector placed near the screen, but being compact we find an occasional inconvenience. The first is resolution, which can only be 800 × 600 but can natively connect sources to give us up to 1080i video. The other hits of this type of product is the luminosity, well below normal.

In this projector from ViewSonic would be speaking to 400 lumens compared to 2,000 on average to be found in a traditional projector. However, the result will be satisfactory if we do not use in bright environments, because with only 100 lumens projections have gotten good in our tests.

An interesting accessory that came with the projector is the WPG-350 bridge. If you connect to the VGA port on your projector, we will have a WiFi connection with a computer if they want. This accessory does well at resolutions up to 1024 × 768 pixels.

The price of compact projector ViewSonic PJD2121 is $ 500, costing $ 200 WiFi adapter.
