Think your 8mp camera on your cell phone camera is awesome? It's old tech now. Sony Ericsson has announced the first phone sporting a 16.4mp sensor: the Cyber-shot S006.
Set to hit Japan in the spring, this smartphone is based around the popular 1 GHz Snapdragon processor with a 3.3 inch screen with the requisite built-in WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The uber-camera also has ISO settings of up to 12800 for fast moving shots. Sony's OS will be installed on the phone which will be exclusive to KDDI, one of Japan's big cell phone providers. Here's to hoping it hits phones the rest of the world can get their hands on soon.
AMD have shown off their upcoming Llano APU at a press event in Los Angeles.
The upcoming Llano unit will be 32nm and manufactured at GlobalFoundaries - reports are saying the 32nm process has been a bit iffy so far, but obviously AMD have ironed those issues out with GloFo as this demo shows.
Now for a bit of GlobalFoundaries PR speak:
"AMD's Llano is the industry's first foundry product with High-k Metal Gate (HKMG), so it is an important proof point of our ability to deliver this new technology. Our 32nm HKMG technology ramp is currently in early production at Fab 1 in Dresden and we are making continued progress on ramping the process in support of AMD's 1H 2011 customer commitments."
Bose, a name usually associated with premium priced audio hardware, is making a jump into the mobile game by announcing a new Bluetooth headset. Apparently there weren't too many ideas left when it comes to naming, because it has been dubbed "the Bose Bluetooth headset."
This headset will come with noise cancelling properties, a design that foregoes the usual "ear hook," and self adjusting volume that levels things out depending on the noise in your environment. The one thing that is familiar for Bose fans will be the price: $149.99. The Bose Bluetooth Headset is expected to hit store shelves sometime in November.
