12/05/2011, It looks like Dell has called it quits on yet another Android product, this time in the form of the Dell Streak 7. It was “confirmed” today via Dell’s website which states that the “Streak 7 is no longer available online”, which seems to suggest that if you plan on getting your hands on the device, you might want to check online retailers or brick and mortar stores.
09/16/2011, According to TiPb, a tipster sent them what appears to be photos of Target’s inventory, which showed that the 16GB 3G iPad 2 on both Verizon and AT&T are marked as discontinued. Given our previous report and reasonings on why Apple would not be releasing an iPad 3 this year, this is indeed rather puzzling as to why Target would be marking the 3G versions of the iPad 2 as […]
08/02/2011, If you’re a user of Ovi Calendar, then you might not be too happy with the latest development. Web-based access to Ovi Calendar will soon be a thing of the past, as the official blog post has also confirmed such a predicament – although you can take heart that mobile access will still continue. Sounds like a ploy to make sure you remain on Nokia phones?
07/29/2011, Have you laid your eyes on a Nabaztag before, or interacted with it? That was one cute critter, but to have a kind of physical Tamagotchi is not such a good idea for any company, financially speaking. Mindscape, because of its bankruptcy fillings, has finally decided to pull the plug on the Nabaztag, a cute creation that actually did not contribute to the company’s bottom line in any way. Guess […]
06/12/2011, The T-Mobile G2 is dead, long live the T-Mobile G2! Well, there’s that, with the death knell sounding for T-Mobile’s G2 smartphone. As of June 6th, it has officially reached the end of its shelf life, so whatever you see there is just that, there won’t be any more new models being churned out from the production line, making each handset all the more valuable as one by one of […]
06/02/2011, Update: the original title and post may have made it sound like Mirasol (the technology) was dead. This is indeed *not the case*. We apologize for any confusion. What was cancelled was an eBook project that uses Mirasol. Yesterday, Paul Jacobs told a panel of journalists, including our own Hubert Nguyen, that Mirasol will continue to evolve. According to Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs, the first Mirasol-based eBook product to be […]
05/26/2011, Word on the street has it that Sony’s flagship Alpha A850 SLR camera might just reach the end of the road, as B&H Photo has already posted a notice alongside the camera that “this item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.” In addition, the A850 also cannot be found on sale on the SonyStyle site, so if the manufacturer does not even carry said piece […]
04/22/2011, It looks like another portable gaming console is about to get the ax (the PSPgo was announced as officially discontinued earlier this week in Japan), and the Nintendo DS Lite has been rumored to suffer the same fate albeit in the US. According to a leaked internal memo from Gamestop, production for the NDS Lite has been discontinued and that whatever is left in stock will be the only stock […]
03/23/2011, There were speculations floating around hinting that Apple would be discontinuing the iPod classic – one of the few remaining direct descendants of the iPod (which you could say was the MP3 player that changed everything). Apple used to introduce a new model every year except for the past couple of years, leaving the iPod Classic unchanged since 2009. Since the MP3 player has been considered a classic, Apple probably […]
11/01/2010, Philips has decided to stop producing devices for its Pronto range of universal remote controls after failing to find a buyer to take over the ailing business. Here’s what Philips had to say about the situation officially: “In December 2009, Philips announced the intention to relocate some of its existing remote control activities in Leuven, Belgium to Asia. At the same time, the intention was communicated to investigate alternative strategic […]
09/27/2010, The HTC Hero comes in a different form factor as it has a curved bottom, something that makes it instantly recognizable at first glance. Well, Telus has just announced that they will be discontinuing this smartphone after being made available to the public since November last year. An 11 month run isn’t exactly that long, and to see it discontinued so soon means the phone isn’t doing well at all […]
04/15/2010, Dell has decided to discontinue the Inspiron Mini 10v netbook which is powered by the Atom N270 processor from Intel simply because they have been selling the 10″ model with an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor since January this year. Makes sense, although those with a touch nostalgia might be pleased to know that Dell does bring back its old netbooks for a limited run at times. If you’re still […]
03/05/2010, For folks who have followed Garmin and its myriad of GPS navigation devices over the years, chances are you would have noticed the Colorado series. Sad news then as Garmin will be discontinuing the Colorado 400 series. Of course, not many will shed tears as the Colorado series never really took off since it always languished in the shadow of the Oregon touch-screen devices. Hopefully technical as well as hardware […]
02/25/2010, Skype for Windows Mobile has been discontinued simply because of a subpar user experience when compared to the iPhone and Symbian version. According to Skype, “Our focus is on providing a rich user experience that allows you to enjoy free Skype-to-Skype and low cost calls as easily on the move as you do at your desktop. We felt that Skype Lite and Skype for Windows Mobile were not offering the […]
