Gizmo Day – Part 2

leave a comment »

So here is a short wrap-up of two press events that took place today  in Warsaw, organized by Lenovo and Asus-Garmin duo.

On the first one one could see and play with the new “All-in”One” computer – IdeaCenter A600. This thing is a hybrid of a regular desktop and a netbook – it has a big screen, optical drive, normal keyboard (desktop-alike) and it is dedicated mainly to play  multimedia (pictures, movies, TV)  and to use internet. whole computer stuff is hidden into the screen (IMHO it could be a bit bigger), so it won’t require to much space on your desk.  I think it is a fairly good offer for people who like the traditional form of desktop (big screen, big keyboard) but they won’t use computer to edit pictures in Photoshop, make CGI or play demanding games. The second thing from Lenovo which caught my eye was it’s new netbook IdeaPad S10-2 (should arrive to Poland in Autumn). Nice little thing is only 18 mm thick and weights 1,3 kg. It is equipped in Intel Atom N280 processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive, 3 USB, camera and stereo speakers. With 6-cell battery it suppose to work for 6 hours. And it comes in PINK! 😉 I just hiope that lenovo Poland will decide to sell those pinkies here as well.

On the Asus-Garmin conference it was announced that their together-made mobiles – nuvifones will arrive to Poland in 2-3 weeks. My type is the M20, mainly because of its unlike-iPhone form factor. The Nuvifones should cost about 2,500 PLN (sadly).

Few days ago I have written about finally announced, long-awaited and even longer roumored Nokia Booklet 3g – the first laptop (or , being precise – mini notebook) form the Finnish giant. And today Nokia has present yet another device with netbook capabilities – N900. It runs on Linux-based Maemo 5 software. With 1 GB Ram and ARM Cortex-A8 processor it should handle few applications running simultaneously, so work as computer and as regular mobile phone as well. It has WiFi, HSPA module, 32 GB memory on board (with possibility of expansion with memory cards) touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard. All that in the device size of regular mobile phone. It shall cost 500 Euro so a bit and arrive in shops in Q4.
