lg-sentio-200

Taking aim at budget conscious consumers who are tantalized by all the touchscreen goodness they’ve seen fingering about with the HTC Incredible and iPhone 4, the LG Sentio will get your fingers tapping at a third of the price. Offered on the T-Mobile network, the Sentio’s low-price appeal has a little bit of high-end features. Starting off with a fairly large three-inch touchscreen display, complimented by three face buttons, 3G connectivity, GPS, and a 3MP camera.

Dual screen tablet concept by Toshiba takes a page out of Microsoft’s Courier project

4712637020_14483cfa26_b

Why have just one touchscreen display, when you can have two? Taking a page out of Microsoft’s abandoned courier project, Toshiba gives it some thought with their libretto tablet concept PC. Formerly known as the libretto W100, you can expect this Smartbook, a new class of devices, to be loaded with full Windows 7 functionality – and tablet mods. Powered by an Intel Pentium processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 62GB SSD (that’s an odd size), 802.11b/g/gn Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1MP webcam, and a 3D accelerometer for your gyroscopic pleasure.

X10 ‘Mobile Internet Device’ boasts 7-inch screen, outputs 1080p HD

X10 No-name Windows CE tablet

This device totally came out of left field, because it’s still unclear exactly who the manufacturer is and what badge it will carry. What we can tell you about the X10 is that it’s a mobile Internet device (MID) and comes with a high-def surprise. Beyond the fairly standard seven-inch (800 x 480) touchscreen display, you’ll notice that this MID comes with the ability to output 1080p HD content over an HDMI connection. Great for sharing videos on your HDTV, but with only 256MB of RAM I wonder if performance will be an issue.

nokia_n8_front_silver_604x604

Nokia today officially unveilled the N8 smartphone. Whereas most other phones take on a typical black, white, or silver appearance, the Nokia N8 comes in a range of different colors. In fact, with the 12-megapixel shooter out the back and HDMI output on the side, the Nokia N8 almost looks like a fashion-conscious compact camera. Look for it in hues like blue, orange, and pale green. Me? I’m boring. I’ll stick with black.

Dell Lightning strikes with Windows Phone 7

De

Not particularly impressed with the Dell Mini 3i? Don’t really want anything to do with the Dell Streak series? That doesn’t mean that the giant computer maker isn’t going to go after your smartphone dollars with yet another offering. In a very exciting move, it seems that we could be getting our hands on the Dell Lightning smartphone.

While the hardware looks pretty slick (and I’ll get into that a little further in just a moment), the real news is that this will be powered by Windows Phone 7. Windows Mobile has really fallen into the background these last couple of years, getting overshadowed by the iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android (and even webOS from Palm to an extent), so this could be a major boon for Microsoft.

Cypress TrueTouch adds “hover” functions to touchscreens

TrueTouch by Cypress adds "Hover" to touchscreen devices

No, your touchscreen won’t let you rip down the street like Michael J. Fox did in Back to the Future on a hoverboard. This is taking what was once an annoying issue that plagued SurePress touchscreen technology from Research in Motion, later to be addressed with the BlackBerry Storm, and turning in to a full-fledged feature. When you have a touchscreen, it becomes an all-or-nothing affair. Either you touch it or you don’t – no longer is that the case.

Cypress Semiconductor has just announced what it calls the TrueTouch feature for touchscreen devices. In addition to the usual “tap” that you can give a touchscreen, you can hover your finger over an area and have the screen react accordingly.

Wind Mobile launches Nokia 5230 touchscreen smartphone

Nokia 5230 lands on Wind Mobile

Earlier this week the Nokia 5230 was revealed and suspected to be making its way over to Wind Mobile in Canada “soon” and with that, we would probably expect it in a “few weeks.” As it turns out, these weeks turned into days. Wind Mobile has officially launched the Nokia 5230. The best part is that they’re keeping the price a lot lower than most people would expect for a brand new touchscreen smartphone. The Nokia 5230 can be yours for $180. That’s outright without a contract.

Maybe you’re really interested in the Apple iPad, just like everyone elese these days. However, you’re not as interested in that iPhone-based operating system and you can’t be bothered with something the size of the iPad. It seems that a strange company called Moonse has you covered.

What you see here is the Moonse E-7001 tablet. In just about every regard, they’ve designed this product to look just like the Apple iPad. There are certainly differences, of course.
