Tech News of the Week
Sony NWZ-W200 Unwired Walkman
It’s called Sony Unwired and looks a little like two Bluetooth headsets. Word is they sound pretty good. We wonder how easy they are to control. Unfortunately they only have 2GB of memory but they do have a cool recharge feature. Supposedly, a 3 minute charge will give you 90 minutes of play. A 90 minute charge is good for 12 hours. It is expected to cost around $100.
Archos 5 Sales Suspended by Amazon
Several blogs have been reporting that the Android-based tablet we mentioned a little while ago was put “under” review,” by Amazon. Amazon says that “customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item.”
The ION Netbooks Keep Coming
Expect to see a new ION-based netbook from Asus soon after Windows 7 launches on Oct. 22nd. The Eee PC 1201N has a 12.1 inch display, 320GB hard drive, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N330 dual-core CPU, 3GB of RAM and NVIDIA ION graphics engine. A scaled down version with no ION chip, the 1201HA should also be available at the same time. No word on pricing yet but everyone is hoping it will be in line with other Eee PCs.
New Lighter Sony PSP Go
That PSP disc drive must have weighed a lot because when Sony left it out of the new PSP Go, it became 43% lighter. The PSP Go is available now in black or white for $249.99. It has a 3.8 inch display, controls that slide out the bottom, and Bluetooth. We’re seeing a lot of grumbling about missing features.
New ASUS Laptops Boast 12 Hour Battery Life
ASUS announced three new Unlimited Range (UL) laptops, the UL30, UL50AG, and UL50VG. The new laptops use Intel’s “consumer ultra-low voltage,” (CULV) processor technology. The 13.6 inch screen, UL30 is expected to cost just under $1000 when it goes on sale on October 22nd. If 12 hour laptops for $1000 are for real, we’ll be thrilled.
Sony Ericsson Phone Has 12 Megapixel Camera


The new SATIO phone from Sony Ericcson has a big 16:9, 640x360 touchscreen display. It runs Symbian, includes all the usual smartphone features like GPS. It even has an FM radio. The 12.1 MP camera includes face detection and a Xenon flash.
Future 20MP Camera Phone Chip From TI
