Yet another netbook from Acer. Specswise nothing extraordinary as it features a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 250GV hard drive and Intel GMA 3150 integrated graphics. There are couple of surprises though with one being the latest Bluetooth 3.0 and other the new sleeker and slimmer chassis design that comes in Red, Black or White. RRP €329.
Asus UL20FT-A1 brings 1.2GHz Intel Core i3 330UM to the ultra portable Asus UL20 series. According to the guys over at NotebookReview the ASUS UL20FT offers a more powerful processor then its predecessor Asus UL20A for just a few more bucks. It also adds a better display and bigger hard drive. Unfortunately omits the USB 3.0 and eSATA ports so let’s hope Asus will add those in the next refresh. With all the nVidia Optimus packed laptops appearing lately it definitely isn’t exactly the most exciting but for under $650 is not much more expensive then your average netbook but offer a lot better performance so it is definitely great value for money.
Look out Canon PowerShot G11 and Panasonic LX5 as there is some serious competition on the block the Samsung EX-1 digital camera. The specs are very promising with a back-illuminated CMOS 10 megapixel sensor, super-bright f1.8 lens all for less then £320. Sounds great to us and according to guys over at Cnet the Samsung EX-1 is a solid high-end compact digital camera that does have some minor handling issues but otherwise it features good quality lens and a very pocket-friendly priced.
We normally don’t post rumours and leaks as we would hate to tease you with desirable devices that might never happen but this one is just to sexy to pass up. Engadget got exclusive video and photos of the yet-to-be-confirmed Dell Thunder smartphone prototype that featured 8 megapixel digital camera with flash, Google Android 2.1 and 4.1 inch OLED display (480x800px). Let’s hope the final model will feature a 2.2 version of Google Androd – Froyo.

Guys over at TrustedReviews test the Toshiba Portege R700 13.3 inch Notebook aimed at business sector. They concluded that this 2.26 GHz Intel Core i3 350M packing notebook is a great update of the Toshiba Portege R series providing a visual refresh, good balance between price, performance and features. The battery life is great too with up to 6.5 hours of juice and also the 3 year warranty that comes as standard is worth mentioning as most manufactures offer only 1 year as standard. Although it did left them wishing the keyboard would be better.
If you have always loved the Toshiba NB305 netbook but was just slightly over your budget then Toshiba has got an answer for you a cheaper brother the Toshiba NB250 even though guys at TrustedReviews think that if you decide to buy the Toshiba NB250 you should get the version with a six-cell battery to get some decent battery life out if it but bare in mind that this is yet just another average netbook out there with little to stand out from the already blend netbook market.
Acer wants a piece of the Android pie with its latest Acer Stream Smartphone. On the paper it sure looks the part with Google Android 2.1, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, integrated 2GB storage, 3.7-inch AMOLED WVGA touchscreen, 5.0 megapixel camera and 720p video recording. According to the guys over at T3 it packs all the right hardware but lacks interface polish to compete with likes of HTC Desire.
