Ah, Astro Gaming. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? After going on a year-long hiatus from crafting new hardware, the company is hitting back with an all-new headset based around the same DNA found in its A40. Rather than cranking out yet another pair of mic-infused headphones that do users little good outside of the LAN party setting, the A30 Cross-Gaming actually boasts a street-style design that enables them to double as vanilla headphones. The boom mic is removable (though an in-line mic allows for communication in any situation), and you’ll find interchangeable speaker tags if you’re scouting a way to “be yourself.” It’s up for order today at $149.95, but if you’re looking to pick up a Dolby-powered Astro MixAmp — which is said to “seamlessly blend voice and game sounds” — you’ll be looking at a grand total of $229.95.
It’s still mildly hard to believe that the Sony VAIO M is for real, given its lack of VAIO’s iconic chiclet keys plus the pretty convincing VAIO W fake that we’ve stumbled upon. Nevertheless, kudos to Sony for reaching out to a more affordable market with its new 3.1-pound netbook. The specs are the identical with the ones we saw yesterday and earlier this month, but hey, there’s no harm in having another party to welcome this fella, right? You can grab one now — in black or white — for £300 ($456) in the UK.
Well, the details are extremely thin here folks, but it looks like Samsung’s working on a tablet PC — or ‘slate’ if you’re into the new fangled lingo — just like pretty much every other manufacturer on the planet. Speaking with APC (the website, not the clothier), Philip Newton, director of Samsung Australia’s IT division, said that the company is working on a slate PC for the second half of 2010 that will have “PC-grade processing power and connectivity” — two things Newton had previously cited as the main things lacking in the iPad. That’s really all there is to go on — no specs or features mentioned, though Samsung has been vaguely hinting that the tablet, when it appears, will run on Intel’s Atom platform, which sounds about right. We’ll have to wait and see, won’t we?
Got 50k to spend big daddy? Good, then meet Alexa from ARRI, a German company founded in 1917 that just happens to be the world’s largest motion picture equipment manufacturer. Alexa is ARRI’s answer to the RED ONE digital, so don’t be held captive by your consumer-based experience of what a camera is or what it should look like. ARRI has a trio of cams slated for release in 2010 offering a 3.5k pixel count, 800+ El equivalent sensitivity, 1 to 60fps frame rate, electronic viewfinder and on-board HD recording. The A-EV Plus model adds uncompressed on-board recording and wireless remote control to the 16:9 aspect ratio shooting A-EV. The A-OV Plus switches things up to a 4:3 aspect and adds an optical viewfinder to the mix. The rest of the details will arrive during an April 6th launch event where ARRI will reveal the complete media, format, and what’s promised to be a “super fast workflow.”
Your hopes, dreams, and deepest desires for a keyboardless CLIQ have finally materialized today now that Motorola’s CLIQ XT has reached T-Mobile shops across the country. Interestingly, yesterday’s leaked documentation pegged the date, but not the price — rather than the rumored $99.99, the XT will actually be going for $129.99 on a two-year contract. We guess that’s still not bad for a bona fide myTouch 3G alternative with a 5 megapixel cam — as long as you can get down with Blur, of course.
Sure, we’ve been pushing Microsoft hard for Windows Phone 7 Series details like copy and paste (no) and multitasking (no), but we just realized that we’ve never actually seen a 7 Series device… make a phone call. A little running around later and we’ve got two demo handsets calling each other. We’re told that the little white arrow on the call panel will eventually bring up options like conference calling, speakerphone, and mute, but it’s not working yet — and one of the phones seems to think it’s running on Cingular, so either time travel is an unannounced feature of the OS or Microsoft still has some work to do. Video after the break.
P.S. They’re just demo SIMs, but we’re sure the poor PR folks babysitting the devices would appreciate it if you didn’t call the numbers, okay? Be nice.
The last we heard of Samsung’s BD-C6900 Blu-ray player it was up on Amazon for a pre-order — and then it was mysteriously gone again. We’re not sure whether anyone clicked the button quickly enough to get one of those into their shopping cart and onto their credit card statement back then, but even if you missed out then it is actually shipping now. At least, it is according to Amazon, which lists the thing as “In Stock.” The price is still $399.99 and for that you get 1GB of integrated memory, “explosive 3D capabilities,” DLNA streaming, and of course that lovely skylight to show off the spinning blur of your latest library addition — or Netflix rental.
