SmartQ 5 MID scores itself Ubuntu, a ridiculously low price tag

The SmartQ 5 from SmartDevices just took itself from me-too MID of the millisecond to a quite interesting value proposition. The touchscreen device, which features a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 screen, is now running an ARM-friendly Ubuntu distro, and has been given the low, low pricetag of 899 Chinese Yuan, about $132. Sure, it’ll probably never surface Stateside, especially not for that price, but it’s a good demonstration of what a little bit of decent ARM hardware and a popular Linux distro can do when they work together, hand in hand

Hands-on with Dell’s Latitude XT2 tablet


Official word just arrived this morning of Dell's Latitude XT sucessor, the Latitude XT2, and Laptop Magazine's already spent some quality time with the tablet. They note the XT2's aesthetic similarity to the previous model, but point out a few standout upgrades, most notably the 12.1-inch LED backlit capacitive touch-screen, which they say is significantly brighter than the last iteration, and the up to 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo ULV SU9400 CPU (with a Montevina chipset). They also point out that the finger navigations are “smooth as butter” — but hit the read link for full details and video of the tablet in action. The Latitude XT2 is going to have a starting price of $2,399.
