With Intel bullying AMD around with its Core i7 processors, AMD will be gearing up to hit back with its rumored AMD Thuban 6-core processors. While AMD hasn’t officially confirmed but, but the Thuban should sport 45nm processing cores, support DDR3, have 6MB cache and should support your AM3 motherboards. We’re looking forward to testing the multi-tasking capabilities of a 6-core AMD processor, and with it scheduled for Q2 or Q3 of 2010, it certainly looks like we won’t have to wait all that long for it to become a reality.
Most of us are quite excited about the Droid Eris, and the latest details that have leaked are quite promising. The launch should be scheduled at Nov 6th, and the device should only set you back $99, which isn’t too bad, considering it sports almost the same specs as the $180 HTC Hero. In case you’ve forgotten, the Droid Eris will sport a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 320 x 480 screen, Android 1.5 and probably an 8GB microSD card, not too shabby for a sub-$100 phone, eh?
As usual, there’s nothing official yet, but speculation that Apple is gearing up to release an Apple tablet has surfaced again. We mentioned about the Apple Slate rumor not too long ago, and of course Apple won’t comment on such things, but keep an eye out, with all these rumors going about, there has to be some credibility in some of them, right?

A-DATA has launched its 2.5-inch S596 SSD (solid state drive), claiming that it’s the industry’s fastest SSD, boasting 250MB/s read speed and 180MB/s write speed, enabling it to boot a Windows 7 computer in under 20 seconds. There is also a mini USB port on the drive, which could be quite handy. Storage capacities for the S596 include 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. There isn’t any mention of pricing just yet, though.
We’re not sure if you were affected or not, but it seems that more than a few Gmail users were complaining that they were unable to access their Gmail accounts for at least 12 hours during Halloween, and to some people, that’s like going without oxygen for 12 hours. According to Twitter postings, Gmail returns the error code “502” when users try to sign in. To make things worse, even folks who paid for 24/7 phone support were unable to contact Google’s phone support, despite paying $50 per user, per year. This incident isn’t widespread as the Sept 1st outage, but it certainly seems a lot more irritating. Did you experience any outages? Drop us a comment to let us know your experience.
Apple’s iPhone has officially gone on sale in China. Despite the country being the world’s largest mobile market, there wasn’t any frenzy like the iPhone launches in other countries. While you might suggest it’s a cultural difference or other reasons, it’s most likely caused by 2 factors. The first being that the iPhone in China doesn’t have Wi-Fi, and the second would be the pricing scheme, as the 8GB iPhone 3G would set you back about $732, and the 32GB 3GS will set you back about $1,025, certainly not lunch money. Of course, for those prices, folks could always go source for gray-market iPhone models, so it will be interesting to see how things work out for Apple and China Unicom. Apparently the carrier is hoping to sell 5 million devices in 3-years, so we’ll have to sit back and see how things go, won’t we?
It’s nearly Christmas, and many folks will be looking forward to a graphics card upgrade, fortunately NVIDIA won’t make us wait until Christmas though, as its GeForce GT 240 graphics card is said to be launching on November 17th. While it won’t support DirectX 11, it’s based on the 40nm fabrication process, sporting 96 cores, 900MHz GDDR3 and support for PhysX. There isn’t any word on pricing just yet, but it should be replacing the GeForce 9600, so that should give you a rough indication of its price point.
Looking for a cheap MP3 player to take around with you? Well, at just $82, Yinlips YDP308 might be worth checking out, not to mention that it’s not too bulky either. Sporting a 3-inch display, 7.5mm thickness, 7-hours of music playback, or 2-hours of video playback, it isn’t too shabby. The only downside would be its built-in 4GB of storage, and no mention of SD card support anywhere. In case you were wondering, the YDP308 supports AVI, RM, RMVB, FLV, MP3, WMA, WAV, APE and FLAC formats.
