BGR has some great pictures from the LG event last night, getting some shots and talking a bit about both the Optimus Black and the Optimus 2X. They said that while both devices were very snappy and reponsive, the Optimus 2X with it’s dual-core Tegra-2, predictably, absolutely flies along. The display was kicked out to a 42″ TV via HDMI, and that video and game performance were remarkable. While the Optimus Black couldn’t quite keep pace in the performance area, they commented on how super thin and sleek it was, being “all about aesthetics,” and noted that the 2 megapixel front-facing camera is really making nice strides in video chat.
Both devices were running Froyo on display, but are expected to actually ship with Gingerbread. Hit the source link for all the pictures, and let us know what you think about LG’s new offerings.
Some big news came out today in the ever-expanding world of tablet machines. Apparently HTC, Verizon, and Google are teaming up to release a Chrome OS tablet on Black Friday. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving and it’s the biggest shopping day of the year. This year it will be on November 26th. With all the buzz Android has been getting lately it’s been easy to forget about Google’s other OS. Though if this proves to be true that won’t be the case for long.
HTC and Google famously hooked up to bring us the Google Nexus One, an incredibly capable phone that didn’t achieve the sales results many thought it deserved. Since then Google CEO Eric Schmidt has said that they won’t be releasing a second Google phone, but apparently they still do want to get Google branded hardware out there. As of right now details are few but here’s what we think we know:
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will in fact be going to AT&T, as it was speculated earlier. It will be available August 15th for $129.99 on contract. The device features an 8.1 megapixel camera, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
According to the Streak ordering page over at Dell’s website, the device is now available in red. While the device was originally only available in black, here’s to hoping that we don’t see any unavailability due to the change in color options (White iPhone, anyone?). The red version is available at Dell’s European page starting at £449.00, but ordering is limited to two per customer. To check it out for yourself, hit up the source link below.
Would you get a red streak, or stick with black? Maybe you’d like it in magenta? Let us know below in the comments!
