Since Nintendo’s traditionally been an ATi customer, this would be a major win for nVidia if true.  Personally, I can’t wait for more smart phones that are based on Tegra…

Currently, we have no information what exact chip is being used [just that nVidia won the contract], but with the debut set for February 2010, the second generation of Tegra chips could make an excellent base [to be launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona].

Thin is in … Dell Adamo XPS

Dell teasing us with some profile images of the Adamo XPS.  Although we can’t really see much of the laptop, we sure can tell it’s thin!  9.99mm thin to be exact.

I’m going to ponder a guess that this is the Adamo XPS flipped screen side down.

Now — If only we could get our hands on a review unit…  Not that Dell would be kind enough to send a little site like ours something this cool. <sigh>

The Infinite Book Media Reader Concept

This concept by Ewald Neuhofer really does get my blood pumping a bit… A flexible e-reader with a “Living Hinge” to emulate real page flipping and super low power consumption by using a single impulse to create the screen image on a paper-like surface.  Could this be the future of e-media?

Asus EeeBox PC EB1501

Asus-EeeBox PC EB1501-0

With a dual-core Atom N330 processor, 2GB of DDR2-800 RAM (expandable to 4GB), 250GB hard disk, andNvidia Ion graphics, this delicious looking Eee PC features Windows 7 and Slot-loading DVD-RW.

The lack of a blu-ray drive isn’t much of a deterrent for me, but it may be the one thing that makes this thing less than perfect for someone looking for a super-lightweight HTPC.
