WP7 vs. Android

I was set on getting a Windows Phone 7 device.  Microsoft has some kinks to work out.   I was talking shit about Android,  I may have to take it back.   Google has had  2-3 years to develop the ecosystem.  There are problems with the whole SD card reader.   I will use my upgrade and get a My touch 4G or My touch HD as it is now known.   If Google puts some polish on the OS and refines it with Gingerbread and Honeycome, I will stick with Andy.  I'm liking the GTab (Galaxy Tablet) more and more.  I have played with it and the HSPA does make a difference on the speed of things. 
              A GTab and a Boxee Box could make cable obsolet.  I can't wait for Hulu Plus and Netflix to officilly
launch to make this purchase an essential for the need to have media device.

The Boxee Box is one of the most highly anticipated devices to come out ...

Things could be changing for Android.   With the LG tablet announcement, It seems that Google is responding to the criticism that there is no support for Android tablets.   When the Galaxy Tab gets the Honeycomb update, this  does change things.  For once early adopters will not be punished.  Of course this will depend on the update coming in a timely manner.

It looks like LG could be the one to get the Tab done right:

Windows Phone 7 OS

Some are quick to write off the new WP7 OS.  For those like me who are carefully considering their 1st smartphone purchase this is a viable choice.  WP7 gives an alternative to the polished IOS and the Fragmented
Android Ecosystem.  Microsoft does not have to advertise as being better than Apple to compete.  WP7 will have an opportunity for market share as long as they focus on the strengths of Windows.   There is a little known fact about WP7,  it will soon have Mac sync support from Microsoft.   Not everyone who likes Mac computers loves the Iphone.  I for one need an alternative with a larger screen.   Android is rumored to have a revamped User Interface in the next update.  Android must definitely get more polish.  Will WP7 move on to gain market share with greater significance?  Time will tell.

Stay thirsty my Friends!

Call me crazy but I like this.  If the mic was built in and is not to your liking your stuck with it.  This way you can buy the one you like and customize the device the way you want it giving you the choice.  Sound familiar ummm like Android.  Just saying.

Tab comming this Fall

Official: Samsung Galaxy Tab headed to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon

That's right! Once again, Samsung's gotten all four of the major US carriers in its court -- and just as we'd heard, the 7-inch Galaxy Tab will be heading to Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile sometime during the October / November timeframe. We wish we had more to share on the availability part, but Samsung's leaving that and the pricing announcements to the carriers. (We do know that the keyboard dock will cost $100 and the desktop dock $50.) We got to check out the US version of the Galaxy Tab earlier today, and its raw specs -- 1GHz Hummingbird, Android 2.2, 7-inch, 1204 x 600 WSVGA resolution display, front and rear cams -- were exactly the same as the one we previewed last week at IFA. However, Samsung tells us that TouchWiz will be tweaked slightly for the stateside crowd -- it won't have the Reader or Music hubs, but will have the social networking apps and a new Media Hub. There will also be preloaded carrier apps -- for instance, AT&T's version will come with its Connection Manager. Obviously, we can only hope that Verizon's wised up and isn't planning to totally Bing-out its Tab. No word on an unlocked or WiFi version hitting the US, but apparently it's being talked about internally. We'll be bringing you some more hands-on shots soon and trying to dig up more on pricing, but hit the break for the full press release.

Updated: Samsung just confirmed that a WiFi-only version will come at some point...

The New 2011 Lexus® IS Power, Handling, Control at your Command. The 2011 Lexus® IS.
Leftlane first broke the news that Daimler was planning two new electric vehicles earlier this week, and on Friday Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche confirmed the electric car program. As we reported, one vehicle will be an electric version of the company’s Smart car while the other will be badged and sold as a Mercedes-Benz.
Moreover, both cars will make it to market quicker than originally thought. According to Zetsche, both models will hit the market in 2010. "We plan an electric Smart for 2010 and for the same year a Mercedes (electric) model as well," Zetsche told Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitun.
Zetsche didn’t reveal if the all-electric Mercedes model would be based on a current car or an all-new platform, but it’s likely that Mercedes will electrify either its A-Class or B-Class.
Dr. Z also kept mum about possible pricing, citing the car’s batteries will be the final determinate. According to Automotive News, the Mercedes electric car will use lithium-ion batteries.
As previously noted, Daimler already has a fleet of 100 electric Smart cars testing in London.

Android Tablet from Where?

Sure, popular belief equates Colombian exports with guns and cocaine, but two Bogota-based companies presently have 10-inch tablet computers on the brain. Compumax has got an Android-powered Tegra 2 device on tap with a dual-core 1GHz Cortex A9, 512MB of RAM and a 32GB hard drive, and Smart PC's looking at a netbook-specced Windows 7 slate with an Atom N450 processor, a DVD burner, up to 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive, a folding stand and a pair of peripheral-friendly USB ports alongside what looks like a fairly responsive multitouch screen. Intriguingly enough, the companies claim the devices aren't rebrands and are actually built in Colombia from foreign parts -- the "Hyper" Android slate is reportedly already on sale for COP 700,000 (about $387), and you can expect the "Smart Touch" Windows machine to debut for COP 1,099,000 (about $608) when it debuts in Peru next month. See the latter machine in action right after the break.

Old Vs. New: iMac Battle!


I must have missed it.  Tesla and Toyota have signed a formal agreement to cooperate on a Electric Rav4.  Tesla needs to learn about Toyota's distribution and manufacturing.  Toyota needs to learn about Tesla's battery technology.  It is a little known fact that Toyota had a Electric Rav4 in the late 90's.   (See who killed the electric car.)  The prototype has been built and is being tested by Toyota.   The vehicle should be available in 2012.

Google Music

Google Music coming by Christmas

Dustin Earley

Ever since Google IO, whispers of Google Music and when the service will go active have been getting louder as time goes on. Reuters now has word that Google Music will (hopefully) be up and running by Christmas. The only problem hindering the process is Google’s lack of deals with record labels. Fret not though music lovers, record execs that are willing to pipe up (as anonymously as it may be) have good things to say:

“Finally here’s an entity with the reach, resources and wherewithal to take on iTunes as a formidable competitor by tying it into search and Android mobile platform. What you’ll have is a very powerful player in the market that’s good for the music business.”

As nice as those words sound, if Google wants to compete in the digital music

marketplace they need get their act together fast. As of right now, Apple’s iTunes Music Store accounts for 70% of all US digital music sales. After 3 years of Amazon’s digital music sales, they’re market share resides at around 12%. Obviously, Google will have some catching up to do. Thanks to Android’s over 200,000 handset activations a day, that shouldn’t be hard.
