Dell gets official with webcam-packing SP2008WFP monitor

Filed under: Displays

Not that it’ll come as much of a surprise to anyone that followed our week o’ Dell scoops, but the company has now finally gotten official with its 20-inch SP2008WFP monitor, which is particularly notable for inclusion of a built-in webcam. That cam is of the 2.0 megapixel variety, and also includes a built-in microphone to let you get in some videoconferencing with minimal clutter. Otherwise, you can expect some pretty solid specs across the board, including a 1680 x 1050 resolution, a 2,000:1 contrast ratio, a 2 ms response time, a 300cd/m2 brightness rating, and both VGA and DVI ports (with HDCP), not to mention four USB 2.0 ports. One thing we didn’t know before was the price, which has now been revealed to be just $289. No complaints there.

    Asus intros U1E ultra-portable laptop

    Filed under: Laptops

    We just caught sight of three new Asus laptops, but it looks like that’s not all the company has up its sleeve, with its ultra-portable U1E model now also making its first appearance. This one boasts an even smaller form factor than the company’s just-announced 12.1-inch, 3.3 pound U6S laptop, in this case shrinking things down to an 11.1-inch WXGA display and a mere 2.2 pound carrying weight (albeit with only a 3 cell battery). Otherwise, you’ll get an Intel Core Duo ULV7500 processor, up to 2GB of RAM, a 100GB hard drive, and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth, with an external DVD burner thrown in for good measure. A nine cell battery is also available for those that actually want to get some work done, with it apparently promising upwards of six hours of running time. Look for this one to be available next month, in Italy at least, for €1,999 (or $2,844).

    Motorola shows off its first consumer WiMAX modem

    Filed under: Wireless, Networking

    The WiMAX train is starting to pick up steam — and with services like Sprint’s XOHM scheduled to launch in the next year, we’re expecting to see a lot more devices like Motorola’s CPEi 300 WiMAX modem hit shelves. The company is showing off the wireless broadband modem at the WiMAX World conference in Chicago this week, and seems bullish about targeting the “unserved or underserved” with the device. The unit features one “data port” (we’re guessing Ethernet) and two RJ-11 ports for VoIP access, and runs on the 802.16e “Mobile WiMAX” standard. We’d love to know when we’ll be able to buy this thing and how much it’s going to cost — or even just what it looks like — but it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit to find out more.

    Pure Digital announces million camcorder giveaway for non-profits

    Filed under: Digital Cameras

    At under $200, Pure Digital’s recently announced Flip Video camcorders are already pretty inexpensive, but the company now looks to be trying to make them even cheaper for non-profit organizations — as in free. That’s the goal of the company’s just announced Flip Video Spotlight program, which aims to give up to one million of the camcorders to non-profits and other non-governmental organizations over the next five years. Apparently, the initiative (which is set to get underway this December) will operate as a donor matching program, with donors (or the organizations themselves) able to purchase so-called Flip Video Spotlight Kits, which Flip Video will match one-to-one. Much like the OLPC program, Flip Video sees virtually no end to the benefits of its camcorders, with Pure Digital CEO Jonathan Kaplan saying the company believes “video can help change the world.”

    Transcend enters digiframe market with T.photo 710

    Filed under: Digital Cameras, Displays

    You won’t find us complaining about newcomers joining the digital photo frame biz, so it’s with open arms that we welcome Transcend to the fray. Its questionably designed T.photo 710 marks the firm’s first foray into this arena, and it packs a seven-inch 480 x 234 widescreen display, 1GB of internal memory, support for “ambient background music,” and a multicard reader that plays nice with SD, SDHC, MMC, MS and CF cards. Furthermore, you’ll find USB connectivity, support for JPEG / BMP / Motion-JPG, a musical alarm clock, various holiday themes, a wireless remote and Clock / Calendar modes that can share the screen with your photos. Unfortunately, we’re still waiting for a price and release date.

    Yasuyuki Okamoto moves up to President and CEO of Nikon Inc.

    Filed under: Digital Cameras

    Nikon doesn’t look to have gone very far to find a new President and CEO for its Nikon Inc. subsidiary, with the company announcing today that Yasuyuki Okamoto, a 29-year veteran of the company, will be stepping into both roles. That still leaves Michio Kariya as the top boss of parent-company Nikon Corp, with Okamoto responsible for North, Central and South American markets. Most recently, Okamoto served as the general manager and operating officer at Nikon’s Marketing headquarters for its Imaging unit, with him previously serving as general manager of corporate communications for Nikon Corporation in Japan, and president of Nikon France SA before that.

    Fujitsu’s LifeBook T2010 tablet PC gets reviewed

    Filed under: Laptops, Tablet PCs

    Thankfully, it didn’t take too awfully long after Fujitsu’s LifeBook T2010 got official before the folks over at PCMag were able to wrap their palms around the tablet and toss out their two pennies. Upon first opening this bad boy up, reviewers were stunned by the incredibly bright LED-backlit display, and while they seemed slightly bummed about the lack of an optical drive and the relatively weak processor, it was well-spec’d enough to handle the bulk of everyday tasks with ease. Overall, the crew was thrilled by the remarkable battery life and the beautiful screen (or did we already mention that?), but if you’re still wondering exactly how this machine ended up with four out of five stars, be sure and hit the read link after you slip on those readin’ glasses.

    Sony teases us with Drive

    Filed under: Desktops

    Sony sure loves to tease, and while the Rolly campaign finally resulted in an actual product, we’re still scratchin’ our noggins on this one. There’s not a lot to go on when looking at the teaser page for the simply-titled Drive, and aside from that delightfully green bow and a seductive “Coming soon” phrase, all we can make out is something akin to a scaled-down treadmill with a turgid windscreen. Okay, so maybe it’s just an all-in-one PC of some sort (we can almost imagine a floating LCD behind that ribbon), but we’ll leave the real guessing to you.

    [Thanks, Cheek]

    Chattanoogans to get Bus-Fi, contactless payment options on CARTA

    Filed under: GPS, Transportation, Wireless

    Although Bus-Fi is no stranger to San Francisco, it’ll be new to Chattanooga, Tennessee soon enough. Reportedly, the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) will be implementing “its long-planned Smartbus program” which includes “automatic vehicle locating via GPS and an automatic vehicle management system.” More interesting, however, is the new WiFi system that will enable riders on CARTA buses, CARTA shuttle buses, CARTA Care-a-van vehicles or even the Incline Railway access to free internet. Additionally, users will even be able to “use credit cards and new smartcard technology, one which uses contactless proximity cards to pay bus fares” starting next Spring. As for the free WiFi, expect that to be available sometime over the next 15 months as the new services are gradually added to CARTA vehicles.
