Nokia Booklet 3G
Clearly Nokia is trying to leapfrog Apple by launching a Netbook before the iTablet arrives. Here are the features that attracted my attention:
  • 3G HSPA (and wifi)
  • A-GPS (Assisted-GPS)
  • HD ready with HDMI out (connect to your TV)
  • 12 hour battery life
Will love to get my hands on this device at the intersection of PC and Smartphones with a very high quality Video experience.

Update: Waiting for more info post on Gigaom.
Hi-speed Robot
The dexterity of this robot is incredible. It is just amazing what it can do.

Check out more on the web-site of Ishikawa Komuro Lab in Japan.

iTablet: Waiting for 4G?
There is a lot of buzz in the market that Apple is getting ready to launch a Tablet device. It makes sense for Apple to address the market between the iPhone and the Macs. However, what will make the apple product different? Exceptional UI and Cool Design are a given. I believe that smart use of high-speed 4G wireless bandwidth will send us to the stores to by a 3rd apple device.

To me it makes sense that they will deliver a product with Verizon - the first of the Big 2 to launch LTE (rumors abound) in Q1 / Q2 2010.

An iTablet on 4G will destroy Kindle's chance to grab a piece of the mobile-media market. A multi-media experience is essential for news media. An iTablet can finally start converging on-line and TV news by delivering an interactive rich-media experience on a portable device with a large enough form-factor.
