Sharp will be announcing the world’s first 3D/2D switchable touchscreen display that doesn’t require 3D glasses to enjoy the 3D effect that we’ve all the longing for. Apparently this is the same kind of 3D display that the upcoming Nintendo 3DS will feature. The magic behind the display is the parallax barrier system and taking advantage of advances made in CG-Silicon technology, the LCD is able to achieve better image quality and brightness. The 3D display should sport a 3.4-inch size with a 480 x 854 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 500cd/m2 brightness in 2D mode. Whatever magic Sharp is planning to work on its display technology, as long as it gives us a great 3D experience at an consumer-friendly price, there shouldn’t be any complaints.
Fujitsu enhances their netbook range with yet another model - the LifeBook MH300 which comes in a 10.1" form factor, while tipping the scales at a mere 2.4lbs. With less than an inch in terms of thickness, you can be sure that the LifeBook MH330 ought to be able to fit into just about any bag without any problems of bulging out whatsoever. The 3-cell battery back doesn't look like it can do much though in terms of battery life, so it would be best to use this not for extended timespans. Specifications are available in the extended post. There is no word on pricing or availability, but it ought to be released pretty soon since it has already been announced. [Press Release]
SkyfireSkyfire is by far the best browser that Windows Mobile devices can rely on at the moment, as it is not only fast but stable and boasts Flash support. For those who are running on Android-powered devices, fret not - Skyfire for Android is on its way, although you will need Android 1.5 or higher (which shouldn't be a problem these days). You can email Skyfire with your name, device type and country you are residing in order to fill up the slot as an alpha tester. Bear in mind that slots are extremely limited, so the early bird gets the worm in this case! Just to make sure you won't get duped, all selected alpha testers will be asked for their device’s IMEI as a safeguard.
Forget about the leak - the BlackBerry Bold 9700 OS 126.96.36.1996 is now official, so folks who were willing to wait for just a few days can be "rewarded" with the real deal, not to say the leaked version was gimped in any way. Still, it is prudent to always make a backup copy of all your data before you go ahead with any firmware updates since you can't tell whether things will go awry or not. For those who have already made the jump, how do you find it?
Looks like folks who are looking for a BlackBerry Bold will be able to pick one up from Verizon Wireless later this May, as shown by an internal website where Bank of America employees can order new handsets listed the device as such. There is still no word on its model number though, although there is the possibility of it being called the 9750 to keep up with RIM’s naming convention. Guess the person using this computer ought to be more careful with people capturing a photo of the screen from behind.

BlackBerry for Twitter 188.8.131.52 has just leaked out, and whoever is curious to find out how it works can easily make a go at the download link. You will get native messages folder integration and push-grade direct messages alongside a Lists tab that will let you view and edit your lists of followers. The Lists tab can be considered to be a major inclusion especially when you are working from a mobile platform, since it can be a real hassle to go through your whole feed of incoming tweets for something specific. The ability to view individual users within the app also enables you to view their lists with the option to subscribe to or recommend them to others.

Looks like Apple intends to get a little more serious about gaming, as the fruity company has submitted a patent on a device that’s related to gaming. From the patent it’s known that the device can be used as an external gaming device and might have several accessories. Variations of said accessory might include a camera, vibration add-on, microphone, and an accelerometer. The design also shows an accessory that will give a portable touchscreen device some external gaming controls, much like those gamepad accessories that show up from time to time for your iPhone. It’ll be interesting to see if Apple wants to take on long time gaming giants such as Nintento and Sony in the gaming scene. Do you think Apple will want to come up with a dedicated gaming machine, or turn it’s iPhone/iPad into one?
