Nokia N810 gets official

The new N810 by Nokia was announced this morning, the following is some of its features as well as a picture of its pull and slide qwerty keyboard. A much bigger phone, but with a screen this size and a faster processor and more ram this phone is definitely going to be on a few peoples wish list.

Shocking everyone — especially Engadget readers — Nokia announced its new N810 this morning. Details are still incoming, but here’s what we know for sure:

* Same WVGA (800 x 480) display as the N800, brightness increased by ~20%
* GPS with particular focus on the “context sensitive web” via Ovi
* 2GB internal storage (not including memory cards), ships with maps for use with GPS
* Has WiFi, does not have WiMAX
* Bluetooth DUNs to capable phones, totally Foleo-like
* Faster processor, more RAM (we don’t have specifics yet)
* Battery life aimed at 4 hours of “typical use” (movies, music, internet access, etc.) and up to 2 weeks totally idle time, and 5 days active standby (“improved compared to previous generation devices”)
* Runs Nokia’s Linux Maemo interface (duh)
* Ships in November, $479

Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive

Good Idea, but is it practical? Will there really be a difference while booting and loading data? Waiting for Solid State Disk's will be a better choice, Dell's new M series laptops will have 32G SSD's.
Samsung’s Sexy Hybrid Hard Drive -

hybridhdd_lg.jpgNo, this hybrid hard drive isn’t actually sexy (though it is topless) and it is difficult to get excited about hard drives in general. But, since Samsung’s still an underdog in the category, the company’s doing its best to innovate the space instead of just cranking out larger sizes (though it did that, too). The 2.5-inch MH80 notebook hard drives feature 256MB of integrated flash memory to help you boot faster (though only about 10 seconds faster), wake from hibernation mode faster and get up to 25 percent more battery life for your laptop (though that’s compared to Samsung’s own M80 HDDs).
