The folks at Sony Alpha Rumors are back with another tip and this time they claim that according to their sources, Sony has three new full frame camera prototypes in the works. Instead of each prototype being deviations […]

Now the good news for Sony Ericsson Xperia owners is that the company has an alpha build of the Android 4.0 update and they are releasing it for public consumption.
07/30/2011, Remember the $25 Raspberry Pi minicomputer we talked about a couple of months ago? Well it looks like there’s been significant progress since then. The PCB layout of the Raspberry Pi has been finalized and an alpha release has been sent to manufacture. This means that the computer should be undergoing testing pretty soon, and when all the bugs and problems are weeded out, it will probably go on to […]

04/04/2011, While Samsung are taking their time to update the operating system on their debut tablet (hint: it’s probably going to be awhile more, just to ensure their other tablets sell better), the folks over at XDA-developers have already managed to port the tablet-optimized operating system for the tablet. But just like most first builds of Android ROMs – almost everything on this build is broken. Besides it being able to […]
01/11/2011, Screenshots have surfaced that show a listing for a Motorola Alpha, though there isn’t any official confirmation as to what it might be. The phone seems to be priced similarly to the CLIQ and speculation is that it might be the CLIQ 2, though that is just a wild guess at this point.

07/15/2010, The QWERTY keyboard could very well be the most famous configuration to date (the DVORAK wasn’t very popular as you can tell), but people at Lava International Ltd came up with a couple of handsets known as the Lava B2 and Lava B5 which resembles a BlackBerry at first glance, using Alpha keyboards instead of the QWERTY variety. What makes the Alpha different? It sports a totally radical alphabet arrangement […]
04/27/2010, It has been a long time now, and Firefox for Android, also known as Fennec, is now available for download in the pre-alpha stage. You will require at least a Droid or a Nexus One smartphone if you were to get it up and running, where the entire download takes up 10.2MB of space. Bear in mind that there will definitely be niggling problems since this is hardly the finished […]
06/03/2009, Jolicloud has released a private alpha of its social netbook OS, and you’ll need an invitation code to download a copy for yourself. What is Jolicloud anyways? Well, it is in essence, a customized version of Ubuntu Linux which will narrow the gap between desktop and web apps, letting you run web apps side by side with your desktop applications, such as starting Twitter or Facebook just like how you […]
05/16/2009, Sony introduces three new DSLR cameras, named a230, a330 and a380, for casual users who want to use DSLRs like awesome point and shoot cameras. First of all, the cameras are lighter than previous models. The A-230 weighs 15.9oz (450g) and all three are more compact than previous models . The user interface has been changed to be more intuitive, but we’ll have to try that in the field to confirm. All […]
05/07/2009, Sony’s range of Alpha dSLRs ain’t half bad, and they are now preparing to launch another three more dSLRs to further expand the Alpha family in the near future. First of all, we will be able to play with the A330 and two lenses (50mm and 18-55mm), while the remaining two models include the A230 and the A380 (sounds more like Airbus plane model numbers than anything else). Further details […]
