Kindle DX's Release Date
Mark Licea: Hey there! I’m Mark Licea filling the Loaded seat while Natalie is away. Today, we have a lot of Microsoft news out of E3, the Kindle DX comes out in just a few days and the new Ace’s EPC kind of wants to be a laptop. It’s Tuesday, June 2nd and it’s time to get loaded.
Yesterday was a big day for Microsoft at the E3 Gaming Conference in LA. The biggest news of the day is something the company calls Project Natal. The system uses cameras that are able to track multiple users in 3D space without any controllers. Players will be able to interact and control characters by simply moving their bodies.
Microsoft also announced upgrades to Xbox Live. First, the service will integrate with Facebook using Facebook Connect. In addition, you’ll also be able to integrate with Twitter and Last.fm. Also, Netflix will allow you to browse their entire library, not just the items in your queue. The big news for Xbox Live is the announcement of 1080P live streaming video with 5.1 audio, and the announcement that full blockbuster games will be available for download from Xbox Live. There are many more announcements at E3 so be sure to check out all of CNET’s coverage at news.cnet.com.
The Blackberry Storm finally received a much needed firmware update. And according to several reviewers for the phone, it’s actually a big improvement. The 19MB update was made available on Sunday and users report that the phone’s dialing app and we browser are much snappier than before although the rotational response is better but not great. The upgrade is available over the air at VZW.com.
Microsoft rolled out Bing, its new search engine, two days ahead of schedule. Bing was designed to allow users easier access to more information and initial reports find that the service is better than Microsoft’s previous search effort. The site has slick graphics but it falls short behind Google’s speed when searching for news. Bing will display data more appropriately with built-in tools for health, local, travel and shopping. You can try it yourself at Bing.com and let us know your thoughts at email@example.com.
The Amazon Kindle DX is on its way in just a few days. The large screen Ereader geared for newspapers and textbooks have been given a release date of June 10th. It would retail for $489.00. The device is available for pre-order IMs on site and will be shipped on a first come first serve basis.
Acer announced plans to jump into the Google Android phone business later this year. Acer previously said it would launch a phone but now we have a timeframe. Acer says they are working on several different models. In more Acer news, the company plans to sell netbooks that ran android. The company’s president for IT products said that the netbooks will cost less than Windows XP based netbooks and could be out by Q3 of this year.
It has been confirmed that Asus is expanding its line of EPCs to include an 11-inch model. While the company has yet to officially announce the product, we do know that the EPC 1101HA will feature an 11.6-inch screen with improved resolution. Other features include a battery life of 11 hours and Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, three USB ports, a memory card reader and a case similar to the Seashell model that was recently released. A bigger screen is nice but at some point, these netbooks would probably be around the size as regular laptops.
iTunes was updated yesterday in preparation for the iPhone firmware upgrade version 3.0. iTunes’ 8.2 has one security fix and readies the software for compatibility with the new iPhone and iPod Touch OS. Apple also updated their Quicktime Movie Player that has a few security fixes.
