Sony has been a hot topic for rumors lately and many of these seem to be camera related. There are the 20MP Honami rumors and then there are the more recent such as the Sony Xperia "Lens G" setup. This is basically a clip-on lens for mobile devices. An earlier leaked image (sitting below) has it shown attached a smartphone, however it could just as easily be attached to a tablet.
ASUS Transformer tablet really started a new trend in the world of tablets. Many have tried to offer similar options but ASUS is still leading the pack. As usual, those Chinese manufacturers have came up with their own alternative for half the cost. Meet the Aocos PX102 "Hummingbird" tablet with a 1.6 GHz processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and of course a Transformer-styled keyboard dock.
We saw earlier that the Excite X10 had a generous 10.1" 1280x800 display, 1GB RAM, and ran over a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor. There is both a 5MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front facing video cam. As you can see, it runs perfectly smooth in the demo, so the final model will likely be even better. It will launch at $529.99 for the 16GB, and a definite release date is not yet determined. Until now, Toshiba's tablets haven't been quite eye-friendly. But if this new style continues and they drop the price a little bit, they could have a great selling product. [gallery]
SonyEricsson.com regarding a Gingerbread update to the Xperia X10. Unfortunately for all parties involved, Holm notes now that the information saying that Xperia X10's update was available instantly was a bit premature. Instead, Holm notes that the update will take a few more days to roll out. On another note, there's been a lot of impersonating of Sony Ericsson's Rikard Skogberg happening in the past few weeks, Holm warning the public to only trust the one true Skogberg.
Crave, the XPERIA ray is 9.4mm thick and weighs 100g. Unlike other recent Sony Ericsson handsets, it has a front-facing camera for video calls, though it does use the familiar Timescape UI. The display is scratch-resistent and packs in 854 x 480 resolution, and the phone itself will be available in black, gold, white and pink. As for the XPERIA active, it too has a scratch-resistent display - though running at a mere 480 x 320 - but is also water-resistent for dunks of up to 1m for 30 minutes, and dustproof. It has GPS and a barometer, along with Bluetooth and a bundled wrist-strap. No word on pricing, but the Android pair are apparently set to drop sometime in Q3 2011.
has announced that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the XPERIA X10 is on track for a roll-out from the beginning of August 2011. The company has also released a video demo of the upgrade in action - which you can see below - as well as confirming just what features have made it in - or been left out - of the new ROM. After user requests, the original camera UI from the Eclair build has been left in the Gingebread update. The Facebook Inside XPERIA tweaks - which allow for sharing from the media player, browser and other apps - are present, as is most of the functionality from the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc.
"The UI with the desktop layout and pinch-to-overview gesture will be similar and Gingerbread features like Wi-Fi & USB tethering, App storage on SD-card etc are included. Also the customizable horizontal app tray and the media experience widgets from the 2011 XperiaTM Products are in, including an integrated equalizer in the music player. Of course also apps that require Android versions 2.2 or 2.3 will now be possible to download from Android Market, e.g. Adobe flash."However, Sony Ericsson will not be including DLNA support out of the box, due to the inherent delays in getting type approvals, though third-party apps are available in the Android Market. Generic trade versions of the X10 will get the update first, followed by some operator models. However, the company warns that - as said before - some operator-supplied models will not be eligible for the Gingerbread update. [youtube zfEOU8juGec]
