Here’s something nokia : http://www.wired.com/reviews/2012/01/nokia-710/

If budget means having a single core cpu @ 1.4ghz…. I WELCOME OUR NEW FUTURE LOW END PHONES. seriously, my current and aging iphone 3GS is only a whooping 600mhz cpu. It handles the task very well but i got to wait a few second for web pages to load up. But for the general photo taking, music listening and twittering, It is the absolutely best device for the job. I’m really looking forward to the Nokia x Windows phone 7 pair up. I don’t know why wired label the nokia lumia 710 as budget YET they compare it with iphone 4.

Personally, the 3GS should be a better comparison.

This phone is proof that you don’t need top-of-the-line tech specs for a great mobile experience.

Right, obviously they haven’t used an iphone 3GS for 2 years. I mean come on, I love you guys at wired but really , the words of choice you guys are using? This is sending the wrong messages to “normal” people. It is not always about the cpu or the clock speed. It is the OS itself. How it feels is more important than how it actually is. A top end android may out-spec a top end iPhone but for sure, the iPhone feels faster. I am not a fanboy of apple but hey, go ask any normal people, iPhone does indeed feel snappy even if is an iphone 3GS.

The specs sounds fucking amazing on paper but i remember when Creative first released their Ziilabs-based tablet, the reception was lukewarm to almost non existence. I don’t know anyone who had that tablet. So please, If your cpu is as good as the spec says, Make it available for people to buy.

ARM in my tv? Further more, Google TV in my TV ? Hell yes! Please push this out!! PUSH THIS OUTT!!!!

Basically 2 computers in 1. Sweet =D !!!=

Hi, government of the world. Please ban this game as it will enable terrorist to fly planes. Also because Microsoft banned guns in my Xbox Avatar, i believe you should ban all flight simulators as well. After all, THINK ABOUT THE CHILDREN!

Lastly, http://www.tely.com/product/overview

Basically a US$250, 720p camera running android AND Tegra 2(a computer by itself!) …. Waiting for hackers to get a new bootloader in. 🙂 I love skype , i use it daily but hey with the camera’s spec.. You can do many shit with it. It has HDMI output as well! Just load a browser in and use a wifi-keyboard, this will make an awesome streaming machine.

telyHD’s hardware is based on the Tegra 2 Dual-Core ARM A9 (blazing fast) processor from NVIDIA. Each core runs at 1Ghz and is designed to render high quality 720p HD video at 25 frames per second using the on-chip Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Additional specs include 512MB of RAM and 2GB of memory storage

And that’s it today 🙂 ..
