We're only four days into the New Year and already Advanced Micro Devices would probably like to take a mulligan. According to reports, Quanta Computer Inc. is angry at AMD and it's ATI division for allegedly selling defective mobile chips unsuitable for the toasty confines of a notebook. Quanta used the supposedly bad parts in notebooks made for NEC, many of which went on to malfunction. Now Quanta is suing AMD for breach of contract. "Quanta has suffered significant injury to prospective revenue and profits," the company said in its complaint, according to Bloomberg. The lawsuit also alleges breach of warranty, negligent misrepresentation, civil fraud, and interference with a contract, stopping... Read more...

While many Americans were chowing down on backyard grub, NEC and Lenovo were busy in Japan nailing down a rather substantial agreement. They have announced today the launch of NEC Lenovo Japan Group, which becomes Japan’s biggest PC provider. According to recent analyst figures, the new group will total nearly 25 percent of Japan’s PC market, with a strong presence in both the commercial/government sector and in consumer sales. Some might see this is two companies grabbing too much of the market, while others might appreciate complementary strengths (and hopeful benefits in speed/cost). NEC and Lenovo both hold stakes in the joint venture (51 percent by Lenovo and 49 percent by NEC).... Read more...

NEC this week announced the its new 23-inch MultiSynic EA232WMi display intended for corporate, financial, healthcare, engineering, CAD, and other professional applications. Why so? Part of the reason is because of the sexy LED backlit IPS panel, which offers superior viewing angles and better color accuracy than what you'll find on your average TN-based monitor. But there's more to it than that. "The MultiSync EA232WMi provides our elite IT customers with several improvements over its predecessor," said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "Its LED backlight and mercury-free composition make it greener, and it is lighter in weight, consumes less power and is a recipient of TCO... Read more...
Were tablets the "it" device of 2010? Some would say so. But is possible for tablets to also be the "it" device of 2011? That's also impossible to say for sure, but CES 2011 is shaping up to be a show where a load of new slates and tablets make their debut. Up until now, there have been numerous Android tablets to compete with the iPad, and a handful of Windows 7-based tablets. But few big-name brands have outed tablets outside of Samsung. 2011 looks to be the year which changes that. NEC is one major company that is making no bones about their plans for the upcoming show. The company intends to exhibit not one, but two new tablets in Las Vegas. NEC will reveal the Dual-Screen Cloud Communicator... Read more...
NEC plans to show off a dual-screen tablet running on Android at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. According to reports, the new tablet will resemble the LifeTouch tablet that NEC announced last month for the Japanese market. The original LifeTouch tablet has a single 7-inch touchscreen. The new tablet will have a pair of 7-inch touchscreens as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. You'll be able to view different information on each display simultaneously. Additional details about the tablet such as the type of touchscreen (resistive or capacitive) and the version of Android used on the tablets are still unknown. The LifeTouch tablet for the Japanese market is offered via service... Read more...
A tablet is a tablet, right? Well, except for when it's a LifeTouch tablet. For the most part, the tablets that have emerged in 2010 are all consumer-based units with a heavy emphasis on web browsing, media consumption and communications like video calling. We did see one tablet from Indamixx that catered to music creators, but outside of that, there hasn't been a whole lot of variety. But NEC is all about variety. Described as a "cloud communicator," the LifeTouch tablet is mostly aimed at corporate services, but the underpinnings are definitely familiar. It has a 7" LCD, Android as the operating system, and it's positioned between a mobile phone and a PC. The so-called "third device." It can... Read more...
NEC has been on a roll in the desktop monitor sector as of late. We recently reviewed the company's new MultiSync PA271W display and gave it high marks for its excellent color reproduction and boatload of useful features, and now NEC is bringing to market two more MultiSync displays, the EA192M and E201W. Both of these sport LED backlighting, a trait NEC says it wants to concentrate on in order to "help protect the environment." And other than the screen size and resolution (EA192M measures 19-inches and features a 1280x1024 native res with a 5:4 aspect ratio, while the E201W boasts a 20-inch panel with a 1600x900 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio), these two displays are essentially the same....

NEC just sent us word that its MultiSync PA Series 23-inch monitor with an IPS panel is headed for North American shores in November. This is the smallest version of the company's MultiSync PA Series, the largest being the PA271W we recently reviewed. The PA231W, which was unveiled in Europe last month, is a professional grade display featuring 71.6 percent coverage of the NTSC color space, 75.4 percent coverage of AdobeRGB, and 96.6 percent coverage of sRGB, NEC claims. Perhaps more importantly for photo pros, however, is the inclusion of 3D lookup tables for fine tuning calibration. Other features include a 1920x1080 resolution, 270 cd/m² brightness, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, AmbiBright... Read more...
For all but the most budget conscious buyers, piecing together a home brewed rig often entails forking over a premium for certain components, depending on what you're trying to accomplish. If you're a gamer, you probably bought a high-end graphics card (or at least that's what you should have done). Do you spend more time ripping videos than fragging your friends? Then chances are you allocated a bigger percentage of your budget to your CPU than on other parts. But for professional designers, graphic gurus, and anyone else who relies on pinpoint color accuracy, it's the monitor that matters most. That sub-$200 TN panel you spotted in the clearance bin at Walmart just isn't going to have the moxie... Read more...
