Dell XPS M1730 spotted in the wild

Dell XPS M1730 Spotted

Sources today leaked information about the replacement for Dell's long-serving XPS M1710 gaming notebook. Called simply the XPS M1730, the 17-inch system will join the M1330 and other Inspirons with a newer Intel Santa Rosa-based platform but will also have access to features barred from the other systems. The overclock-friendly 2.6GHz mobile Core 2 Extreme will join 2GHz, 2.2GHz, and 2.4GHz Core 2 Duos as options; a free slot on the mainboard will also accept a 1GB Turbo Memory cache to speed up loading times. A major reworking of the notebook's style is in order and will replace the entire outer surface with a textured look.

Telus Samsung m620 hands-on

Telus m620 Hands On

Electronista just yesterday picked up its test model of the Telus Samsung m620, and we're putting the phone through its initial paces as we speak. While it's too early to provide a definitive review, our early look at the phone suggests that Americans familiar with the device as the Sprint UpStage might be surprised to find that the software isn't just the Sprint interface with a different carrier badge; Telus clearly wants subscribers using its Mobile Music (subscription store) and Mobile Radio (Internet streaming of XM Satellite Radio stations) rather than just buying songs or sideloading their own. So far, the concept is smart: the selection of radio stations is smaller, but an unlimited music store subscription means you can download as many tracks as you like anywhere you can get EVDO coverage -- a concept that works better than subscriptions on computers, where metered Internet access and storage space are less pressing issues than on a phone.
