A New iPhone
Whether it’s the iPhone 3GS or the rumored iPhone nano, it’s easy to imagine Apple releasing another new iPhone, maintaining their trend of releasing an iPhone per year to stay competitive in the everchanging post-RAZR cellphone market.
For the new iPhone there are a lot of speculation and on the Internet there have been a variety of pictures of new iPhone, this iPhone Pro by the exposure it looks more like a concept phones.
It’s no secret that most of Gizmodo loves the iPhone, so we’re pretty excited to see what’s next.
Just so Apple!
Apple Magic Mouse
This amazing Magic Mouse uses a laser track engine, making it one of the more sensitive and responsive mouse in the world. It works on more surfaces than the conventional optical tracking mouse. The optical mouse we have come to know and love which would need continuous movement to reactivate the detecter. Well those days are over as the Magic Mouse removes our mouse worries, and concerns instantly. This means that on almost every surface the mouse is able to track the movements and respond to the user’s needs. These surfaces range from the top of a table in starbucks to a desk in your home office. Since it utilizes a laser track engine there is also no need to purchase or even use a traditional mouse pad.
Just so Apple!
4G refers to the fourth generation of cellular wireless standards. It is a successor to 3G and 2G standards, with the aim to provide ultra-broadband (gigabit-speed) internet access to mobile as well as stationary users.
Intel-backed WiMax launched in a few locales by carriers Sprint and ClearWire. AT&T and Verizon (and eventually T-Mobile) are gearing up LTE technology. The Nokia-driven GSM-based “Long Term Evolution” may actually whomp WiMax with download speeds of over 300Mbps—though its presence probably won’t be felt in the US before 2010.
Microsoft can do better than Windows Vista. And with Windows 7—expected sometime before the year is up—they will. Whether it’s the new features or the less taxing system requirements, Windows 7 promises to be a vast improvement on Vista, and hopefully enough to coax most of us still clutching XP for dear life to finally upgrade.
A multitude of companies have various wireless HDMI technologies, but there’s no set standard (two warring factions need to settle the fight before we can have interoperable products). The technology is there, now it’s just a matter of logistics and handshaking.
Wireless HDMI is a technology for serving wireless high definition video and audio in consumer electronics. This is a relatively new technology as you can tell by the low number of products available at this time. see this search for wireless HDMI.
However, Wireless HDMI is the perfect alternative to putting holes in your walls to run HDMI cables through. In fact, you can broadcast in full 1080p using most Wireless HDMI kits like the Brite-View BV-2500 seen above are designed to help make installs much easier when you can’t stick components in the same room.
USB 3.0 Devices
Wireless HDMI may not be quite cooked yet, but the eSATA-crushing USB 3.0 standard is ready to roll. Look for a multitude of products announced within the next week with blazing transfer speeds of 4.8Gbps (moving a 25GB file in under a minute). They’ll also benefit from USB 3.0’s higher electrical power output.
A Great Android Phone
It will be called the Google Phone (update the official name is “Nexus One”) and will launch in early January, 2010. It won’t be sold by any one carrier, but instead will be an unlocked GSM phone. In the U.S., that means T-Mobile and possibly AT&T, whose exclusivity deal with the iPhone is about to run out. It will be running Android 2.1
The new version is undoubtedly smaller, with a lower-profile casing when sitting flat that’s also shorter (but deeper) than the existing PS3. It both weighs less (7.05lb compared to 11lb) and uses less power (250W versus 280W), though it will require an optional $24 stand if you want to position it vertically. If you have a gamer in your life who doesn’t have a PS3 or needs to replace their old console, this is a great and fairly cheap option. Also watch out for game bundles that are offered with some system sales
While we love the iPhone, the Droid really does do everything users could want from a device and it does it with the hottest new mobile operating system on the market (Google Android 2.0). We love the feel of the device, the thousands of apps now offered for Google Android and the fact that AT&T isn’t shoving it in our faces. If you’re a Verizon customer this is the only phone you should be considering. Price: $199 with a two-year contract
Nokia have been the top seller of mobile phones for a long time now and want to revive the market with their Nokia 5800 / N97 touch screen phone – their effective iPhone killers (Nokia N97 N-series touch phone has already been announced and released last year).
From Q3 2007 to Q3 2008 they lost 15.4% of the market share, dropping to 35%, due mainly to the iPhone. With the release of the Apple iPhone it has caused a ripple in the market and mobile phone manufacturers have realised that they need to raise their game. Blackberry have out their Storm 9500 (bottom of top 10) which will be a hot gadget of 2009 (once it gets the firmware it needs to speed up navigation) and will be available before the end of the year.
