Kingston rolls out 128GB DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive

Feeling a little wistful for the old days when USB flash drives costs hundreds of dollars apiece? Then you may want to pick up Kingston’s new 128GB DataTraveler 200, which is apparently not only largest drive of its type to date but, at $546, one of the most expensive as well. In addition to that added storage space, that hefty price will also buy you a fairly rugged drive with a capless design, plus some built-in password protection and the usual Windows ReadyBoost capabilities.

BlackBerry Tour announced by Sprint, too: $199.99 later this summer

New BlackBerry models are few and far between — particularly of the CDMA variety — so when one is announced, the usual carrier suspects typically fall in line within a few weeks of each other and announce their branded versions in rapid succession. This one was particularly tight, though: Sprint has announced its plans for carrying the Tour 9630 just minutes after Verizon. It’ll launch “later this summer” for $199.99 after $150 worth of rebates and a two-year contract, which makes the Pre comparison virtually inevitable

Intel Showcases Compal KAX15 slide-and-tilt MID


Since it’s absurd that we’ll be able to get our easily on a Moorestown-based MID/mediaphone any time soon, let’s about-face our absorption aback to the accepted Intel Menlow belvedere and booty a blink at Compal’s next-gen architecture codenamed KAX15. Unveiled at Computex this anniversary as the “world’s aboriginal Windows-based MID,” the accessory appearance my complete admired slide-and-tilt anatomy agency and could actual acceptable accomplish it to bazaar beneath a altered cast (the Compal JAX10, for example, is awash as the Aigo P8860, Gigabyte M528, SFR M! PC Pocket, and Itelco IDOL).



The listed specs, as you can see in the video screenshot above, are too bleared to accomplish out and could be adapted back rebranded anyway, but jkkmobile mentions an 800 x 480 awning (4.8 inches, I think) and an 800MHz processor upscaling to 1.2GHz.


I don’t affliction for the advanced bare spaces on either ancillary of the keyboard or the blubbery red bezel, but I absolutely can’t acquisition any accountability with the slide-and-tilt design. It’s absorbing that the assemblage is actuality apparent as a Menlow, not Moorestown, device; maybe that agency we’ll see it address a altered name in the abutting few months. An alternating architecture advantage for Aigo’s accounted XP MID phone, perhaps?
