Although Samsung has already made it known that the company won't be announcing the highly-anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone at Mobile World Congress this year, that hasn't stopped specs of this hot phone from leaking onto the web.   One of the reasons Samsung isn't planning to announce the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress is because it wants to shorten the gap between announcing the phone and actually launching it around the world. When the time comes, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S III in over 50 markets or cities simultaneously. Some of the reported specs for the Samsung Galaxy... Read more...

There is a rumor that the Eee PC is going to get a successor sometime in the new year.  Keep in mind that this is just a rumor, but the upgrade could be fairly extensive.  Early reports suggest that new Eee(e?) PC would feature a larger 8.9” screen, WiMAX, and could very well ride on Intel's new Menlow UMPC platform.“Should ASUS choose to adopt the Menlow platform for the next generation Eee PC, huge power saving will be realized for users. The current Eee PC uses a 90nm, 900MHz Celeron M processor running at 630MHz with the current official BIOS. Intel's Menlow platform includes a 45nm... Read more...
Our buddy Fudo over at The Inquirer has just posted some new information regarding ATI's upcoming Radeon X1900 GT GPU. Apparently, yields for R580 are stellar as the assumed 500MHz core frequency for this GPU is supposedly going to be a stunning 575MHz. In similar fashion, the estimated 1GHz memory frequency is now said to be 1200MHz. Obviously, these boosted frequencies will result in some hefty performance gains. Unfortunately, the cost of this board also increased as the card will sell for $350 instead of the $300 many expected. Time will tell if the ~$300 GeForce 7900GT can... Read more...
Well, not officially, but the latest rumor has the system's CPU clocked at 729MHz, and the GPU at 243MHz(Compared to the Gamecube's 485/162). Nintendo has repeatedly stated that they have no intention of waging any sort of hardware war with Sony or Microsoft. "So, in terms of raw next-gen horsepower Revolution clearly can't compare with the Xbox 360's three symmetrical cores running at 3.2GHz or the PS3's Cell chip. But then again, Nintendo has repeatedly stressed that they aren't looking to compete with the tech heavies at MS and Sony. The result... Read more...
IGN has apparently received some final specifications for Nintendo's upcoming Revolution gaming console. Surprisingly, the Revolution's "Broadway" CPU will be clocked at an underwhelming 729MHz and the "Hollywood" GPU will be clocked at 243MHz. Compared with previous generation consoles, the Revolution fares extremely well. However, in the midst of Xbox 360 and PS3 the Revolution seems to be too conservative to be any threat at all for hardcore (adult) gamers and appears to be more like a GameCube 2. Looking at the small footprint and size of the case, it's no wonder we have... Read more...
