Samsung Acquires MRAM Startup, Grandis

MRAM is one of those rarer computer memory types that is expected to one day, replace FLASH memory, and Samsung is one step closer to becoming a pioneer in MRAM technology. Why? The company has just acquired Grandis, an MRAM startup.

Grandis was founded in Milpitas, California and has raised $15 million in venture capital since its birth in 2002. If you haven’t heard about MRAM yet, it stands for Magnetic Random Access Memory and has been claimed by a number of individuals to be an excellent alternative to fast and nonvolatile memory (doesn’t lose data when you cut the cord).

HP Rolls Out 3 New Desktops W/ Ultra-Thin Monitor

It looks like Hewlett-Packard is on a roll! After just announcing a number of wireless PC accessories operating at 2.4GHz, an ultra-thin LCD display, and three new notebooks, it seems that the manufacturer is hitting the PC market hard with awesome new gadgets. This is great because I was under the impression that there was a general slowdown in the market with PC makers. At this point in time, many electronics makers are focusing on lower cost devices such as tablets and netbooks and seemingly avoiding the higher end notebooks and displays.

In either case, HP has a new lineup of desktops that come hooked up with the latest and greatest from the HP labs. Consumers will own a piece of HP LinkUP technology, allowing users to easily access files through the air from a notebook PC on a Pavilion desktop from a home network.

Fujitsu Lifebook TH Series W/ Oaktrail

Fujitsu has just launched the Lifebook TH series and it looks awesome! The Lifebook TH carries a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 capacitive touch display, powered with a brand new Oaktrail Z670 processor, identical to make of the upcoming tablets hitting the market. If you don’t know anything about processors, you have my permission to think “Oak trees and Trail mix.” Now, the design is simply beautiful, I’m a big fan of the wide black border around the display, and the way it slides out and tilts like that.

Samsung announced today that it will be the first in the industry to produce a high-performance toggle DDR 2.0 multi-level-cell memory chip. The NAND flash chip will feature a 64GB density, this is made possible through advanced 20 nanometer process technology. The chip was specifically built to support high-performance requirements of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and solid state drives.

Maybe you just wanted to make chatting with your friends just a bit easier without slamming your fingers on glass?

Acer Updates Aspire One Lineup

Acer has rolled out a nice update to the Aspire One 521, the Aspire One 522. While the new name probably doesn’t shock you, hopefully the specs will. The 10-inch netbook features an AMD C-50 cpu running cool. In Acer’s efforts to keep consistent with their hardware refresh, they are also updating the Aspire One 721 model to 722 and will be shipping the 11.6″ netbook with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.

The 722 will feature the same 1Ghz processor as the new Aspire One 522 and will feature an AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics chipset.

ZTE 7-inch Tablet/Smartphone Coming Soon

Although ZTE usually makes inexpensive OEM feature phones, they have decided to jump on board with the tablet craze after seeing other manufacturers have success. The company’s most recent effort in the Android market involves the company’s new tablet, the ZTE V9 which appeared at MWC earlier this year. The company has recently received approval from the FCC which indicates a likely release of the new tablet sometime this year.

Toshiba’s New Self-Encrypting Hard Drives (They Erase Themselves!)

Toshiba has unveiled today its family of self-encrypting hard disk drives that can erase data when connected to an unkown host. The new Toshiba Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) allow manufacturers to configure different data invalidation options to allow for consumers increased options for data security. The SED hard drives will be in a 2.5-inch form factor and run at 7,200 rotations per minute. The drives are built for PCs, copiers, and multi-function printers, as well as POS (point of sale) systems that are commonly used in government and medical sectors.

Lifebook X2 Concept By Fujitsu

Fujitsu is introducing the Lifebook X2 Concept to us, an extremely portable and very slender laptop. Upon opening the Lifebook, the user will see an ultra widescreen display palm-based device. When the device is fully opened you have yourself a perfect contestant for a modern netbook.

Assuming this Lifebook were ever to make it on the market, I would guess the specs to be very limited. I say that because it seems Fujitsu focused on portability in this design rather than performance. I also cannot imagine someone buying such a small device to do intensive work. The bronze/copper finish makes the device look like it was built for older people who may be looking for a futuristic experience.
