Lenovo debuts dual-screen ThinkPad W700ds

01/04, 11:50pm

Dual-screen 17" ThinkPad

As anticipated by earlier reports, Lenovo on Monday officially launched the first dual-screen laptop. The ThinkPad W700ds offers a 17-inch screen along with a secondary 10.6-inch display that slides out from the main screen. Measuring almost 40 percent of the 17-inch primary screen, the 10.6-inch second screen slides out from the PC cover behind the primary screen. While it gives users extra screen real-estate measuring approximately the size of a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 netbook, it only adds less than half of an inch in additional thickness to the mobile workstation over its predecessor (the ThinkPad W700 mobile workstation).

New Palm phone, Nova OS: "amazing"

Palm Nova Phone Leak

Palm's upcoming phone and the Nova operating system it will use will both be major changes from the products the company sells today, a leak to CrunchGear claims. Targeting the iPhone directly, the device will reportedly drop Palm's longstanding design in favor of a full touchscreen; a hardware QWERTY keyboard will be available but will slide down rather than stay fixed. HTC is believed to be the manufacturer for the phone rather than a strict assembly-only firm.

Unibody 17-inch MBP, Mac mini due Tuesday?

17in MBP and Mini at MW09

Apple is planning at least two key Mac updates that may show their faces as early as this week's Macworld, AppleInsider has allegedly confirmed through its own sources. The company is seen launching a 17-inch MacBook Pro based on the unibody shell of smaller models but will allegedly switch to a fixed-in-place battery. Why the move will be made is unknown, though the MacBook Air was designed in similar fashion to help slim down the casing versus previous models. The report points to earlier claims which say Apple might compensate the reduced flexibility with a much higher-capacity battery than what's presently offered in the large MacBook Pro.

Kodak intros 24X ultrazoom, new pocket 720p cam

Kodak at CES 2009

Kodak on Sunday has slipped out its launch plans for CES that start with one of the farthest-reaching high-zoom cameras available. Despite its name, the Z980 is considered a successor to the Z1000-series cameras and contains a new 26mm lens that can zoom up to 24X versus the company's previous best 15X lenses. It can also shoot relatively close-up thanks to a wide angle design and is hardware stabilized to cut back on blur. A new 12-megapixel sensor and native 720p video capture will be part of the design when it ships in the spring for $400.
