Intel Rethinks It’s Netbook Strategy

With the introduction of so many gadgets and devices all around the world, now the demand for cheap computers has ended and now people desire for performance and better features in their computers.

Now people are concerned with buying either a low-priced tablet or an extremely good computer. Intel’s netbook was a success due to it’s low price, but now the netbook might not attract so many people as it did before.

X-Ray Camera Captures 4.5 Million Frames Per Second

Researchers at the Science and Technology Facilities Council in the United Kingdom have created an X-Ray camera that lets you see 3D images of real individual molecules. The camera can capture images at 4.5 million frames per second.

To put some perspective on that number, the human eye perceives the real world at around 30-45 frames per second. The camera functions by using a superconducting accelerator that produces X-ray flashes a billion times brighter than normal cameras.

Solar Powered NC215 Netbook From Samsung: $399

Wow, a solar powered netbook. I never thought I’d be hearing those terms in the same sentence, and especially not as soon as now, but it’s true folks. Samsung will soon release a 10.1″ netbook with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and a nice matte finish.

Hardware wise, there’s nothing too special about this new machine and it includes the often cited Intel Atom N570 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 250GB hard drive.

But the fact that it is solar powered should get folks happy, especially those who aren’t blessed to be around wall outlets all day long.

A Second Look At The Fujitsu Loox F-07C

Fujitsu recently showed us a very cool smartphone called the Loox F-07C. While this isn’t your typical smartphone name (e.g. desire, merge, sensation, thrill), I have to give Fujitsu props for coming up with its own style. The Loox F-07C is a dual-mode phone that features an Intel Atom processor allowing users to have the processing power needed in a Windows 7 tablet in the bite-sized form factor of a smartphone.

The F-07C can be booted as a tablet running Windows 7 or as a smartphone running the, ugh, Symbian operating system. Sorry, not a huge fan of Symbian, but the dual-mode feature is super cool and not something you ordinarily see on today’s smartphones.

Samsung Series 5, Embrace The Chrome

We’ve covered the Samsung Series 7, and the Samsung Series 4, how about some Samsung Series 5 action? The 12.1″ display will run the Chrome operating system and will be available on June 15th, globally. Depending on where you’re located, you can expect to pay between $350-$500 for this slick 3G machine. Weighing in around three pounds, this notebook provides its users with 8.5 hours of battery life while running on a powerful Atom Dual-Core Processor.

ARM Seeks Defenses Against Intel’s New Chips

ARM is expected to ramp up its efforts to keep up with Intel’s new chip making process that will enter the portable device market. ARM’s executive VP of Marketing, Ian Drew said, “The ARM ecosystem innovates along multiple points, not only the process but also through micro‐architecture and system‐on‐chip design that enables optimized efficiency for a broad range of products.” In the meanwhile, Intel is expected to produce processors that are much more efficient through its new Tri-Gate process technology.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Coming Next Week

Fujitsu is preparing to ship its new Stylistic Q550 tablet computer next week. The tablet PC will carry a razor sharp 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor, a 10.1″ 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, dual digitizer for stylus input and four-finger multi-touch control. Users will be able to pop in a 2.5″ SSD into the machine to experience the full force of the 2GB laptop.

Of course, you get your standard WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth support, and optional 3G and GPS connectivity as well. Ports include an HDMI output, SDHC memory card slot, USB port, and a fingerprint scanner.

Lenovo Convertible W/ Facial Recognition

Lenovo has started selling a new hybrid notebook that looks quite different than the current convertibles on the market. The new convertible is called the Ideapad 06517HU and features a 10.1-inch screen with Lenovo NaturalTouch multi=technology that can swivel 180 degrees to convert from a netbook to a tablet, hence the name. The convertible has an extraordinarily long battery life, integrated high-speed Wi-Fi, ultra-slim design, and weighing just under three pounds. Look out folks, this one packs an Intel Atom N455 processor with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Samsung’s Sliding PC 7 Coming Soon!

Samsung announced its new Sliding PC 7 tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in January. Consumers can now pre-order the device for $649. The Samsung TX100 has a 10.1″ capacitive touchscreen that operates on a 1366 x 768 resolution display, carries a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 Oak Trail processor and comes with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, along with a 32GB SSD.

It seems that we are seeing a trend with tablets going for the solid-state drive option when it comes to storage. This is a smart move because solid-state technology was specifically designed for users on the go who wanted to compute without having their data susceptible to corruption (from normal wear and tear).

Samsung’s Dual-Core Atom W/Chrome OS- LEAKED!

After hearing about Acer’s Chrome netbook in the works, it seems like Samsung will be amongst the first manufacturers to build a Chrome netbook. The details arrived late Wednesday night on a code page for Chromium OS. The netbook is currently codenamed Alex and will carry the same 1280 x 800 screen resolution as the Cr-48, but with more power! The device will feature a dual-core 1.5GHz Atom N550, 2GB of memory and a SanDisk P4 mini-Solid-State Drive.
