Sony WalkMan Phones return

Last summer, we talked about Sony's plans to bring the Sony Walkman brand back to phones to create a media class smartphone. Back then, we were talking about a small 2.6" TFT display with a paltry 5.1 MP camera and 600 Mhz processor. There was also talk of a tablet which has of yet to appear. It may be better late than never, but we've now got word that Sony-Ericsson is gearing up marketing in preparation for a 2011 WalkMan mobile launch. And here's the poster to prove it ....

Motorola ATRIX 4G Review

Welcome to the hat trick. This is the phone that won Best Device CES 2011 and is the only one in the world to have three docks out of the gate, one that's two, for a television and to allow it to connect to the keyboard and a mouse and remote, and another that's a full fledged laptop. This is a big stepping stone in making smartphones the screens we carry around with us everywhere that also act as our computers we're going to be able to use for everyday work. Inside there's a fat NVIDIA dual-core Tegra 2 processor running it's lovely 4-inch qHD display. Reviewing this phone has been difficult due to the versatility, but we bit the bullet and managed to bring you a solid flat look. NOTE: Don't worry about the headless Andy, he's fine, just being modded.

Motorola Atrix 1080p Video Capture Capability to be Added Post-Launch

As we near the official launch of the Motorola Atrix 4G, rumors and speculation are pouring in about the supposed features of the device. One of these is that the devices 1080p video capture will not be supported until after it’s launched. For those who remember at CES the device was said to be able to capture 720p, but its processor could definitely handle 1080p, so why the wait?

LG Optimus 2X 1080P Video Surfaces

One of the biggest features of the LG Optimus 2X is its ability to record 1080p video. Lucky for us, we get to see exactly what this looks like (well, uploaded to YouTube) and you can see the video after the break. We are graced with a shaky camera panning across a calm fishing dock. The video is pretty impressive, however, it’s not the optimal action shot that we would have hoped for. Check it out: Note: Be sure to watch full screen as well as select "1080p." [youtube]nmIaf2787O4[/youtube] We’re quite impressed with the device, and we can’t wait until the device gets launched to the general public. If you would like more information on the device, including a hands-on video, be sure to check out our Hands-On with the LG Optimus 2X. [Via Engadget]

Android Skype HD video calling developed by NVIDIA for Tegra 2 devices

High definition Skype video calls could soon be a possibility on Android devices, with the news that NVIDIA has developed a Skype HD reference platform. However, you'll need a Tegra 2 based "superphone" or tablet in order to use it, since it relies on the dual-core chipset's HD processing abilities. Unveiled at NVIDIA's CES 2011 press conference today, and demonstrated on an Android-based tablet, the app will allow for cross-platform two-way HD video conversations between Tegra 2 based mobile devices and Skype's PC/Mac apps. It uses the SkypeKit SDK released in 2010. No word on when we can expect to see the app available, though we're presuming NVIDIA will be offering the tech to those buying chips. [via SlashGear]

Notion Ink gets real on battery estimates

Notion Ink has released a list of ways you'll be able to drain your Adam tablet's battery in around six hours, as a counterpoint to earlier talk of over fifteen hours of "normal" use.  1080p HD video playback at full brightness and volume will do it, the company says, together with playing a 3D augmented reality game with camera input and 3G or WiFi for data. Solid YouTube or other Flash video playback over wireless will also sap power quickly, as will streaming 3D maps over 3G and using the hardware GPS receiver.  Finally, recording HD video using the Adam's rotating camera and streaming it via WiFi is apparently a sure-fire way to drain the tablet in record time. To be fair, none of that is especially surprising, but it does raise a couple of interesting use-cases, particularly the HD streaming potential.  We've seen apps like Qik do real-time video uploads, but the quality is generally well short of HD.
