The 20nm-class 64Gb NAND doubles the density in a package over the current 32Gb product, meeting the needs of advanced mobile solutions which require smaller size and higher density storage capacity."
"Will they stay or will they go? That's the big question AT&T executives are likely asking themselves about the millions of iPhone customers who may consider leaving the operator once the popular smartphone is offered on other carrier networks in the U.S.
While AT&T has not said when its exclusive deal for the iPhone ends, the company has been preparing shareholders for a day when the iconic device will be available to its competitors. Rumor has it that Verizon Wireless, AT&T's chief competitor, will get a version of the iPhone in January."
When this camera becomes available to the public ... it will be one cool gadget!! I think I'll want one. Just imagine all our Funky Kit photos taken in 3D mode!!
"Fujifilm introduces Finepix Real 3D W3 camera. When reviewers call your product "the worst ____ ever made," do you give up and move on? Or do you build a second model and try to prove them wrong?

"Nikon S1100pj Second Gen Projector Camera Is Brighter, Cheaper, and Can Project What's On Your Computer.
The original projector point-and-shoot, the Nikon S1000pj, was undoubtedly a novelty, but it was a novelty we found pretty charming. Its successor, the S1100pj, is 40% brighter, can act as a projector for your computer, and will retail for $350.
The 14.1MP Nikon S1100pj sports a 5x optical zoom lens and ISO up to 6400. It has 17 scene modes, a 5-way image stabilization system, and the ability to shoot 720p video. But there will still be point-and-shoots that will take nicer pictures for the price."
"... Three has confirmed a claim made first on a social notworking website and which The INQUIRER has independently checked, that the mobile network is blocking jailbreakme.com. Tests by The INQUIRER showed that rather than point users to jailbreakme.com at its address of 22.214.171.124, the Three network sends its users to 126.96.36.199, that is, back to the network operator's own website.
The network told The INQUIRER, "Yes we have tried using our Iphones in the office and we can't get to the website, we are trying to find out why that is."
The INQUIRER's massive legal department was already off to play golf when we called, so we can't be sure, but one might conjecture that Three could be in breach of its contract with its customers over this arbitrary censorship of one website."
This has got to be the gadget of the month ...Now, do I get the iPad or this?
