iPhone 5 specs and design


Unless you were asleep yesterday you will be aware that Apple announced the iPhone 5. If you are planning to get one, and i’m sure one or two of you may here’s the run down of the full specs.

On a personal note – I wasn’t particually excited with the resuluts. Yes, it is bigger but it is still an iPhone. I shall be holding off getting one in anticipation for BlackBerry 10 in Q1 2013. Matt will get the iPhone though so expect his full review in the coming weeks.

The 22-inch Viewsonic Android Tablet

ViewSonic-VSD220We have mentioned on the podcast before the oddity of a 22-inch Viewsonic Android Tablet. Obviously, the idea of a giant Android tablet was both ridiculously cool and ridiculously impractical. As it turns out, the concept device didn’t actually end up as a tablet. ViewSonic wizened up and ditched the internal battery of the device. Now it is simply the ViewSonic 22-inch Android VSD220 Smart Display, and will be hitting US retail stores in October at a price of $399.99.

This thing is basically just an Android powered monitor, which really takes on a whole different dimension if you think about it. Some future evolution of this beast could basically replace the desktop computer completely. In fact, for some users, this specific device itself could do that already. Here’s a spec/feature breakdown followed by a press release:

  • 1,920 x 1080 full HD screen that is touch-enabled
  • Dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4428 processor
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • A micro HDMI port
  • Three USB ports
  • A microSD card slot
  • Ethernet
  • A 1.2MP webcam with integrated microphone
