Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Eats MacBook Air for Lunch

“The X300 is a full-feature laptop, shrunken down to (just about) the Air’s diminutive size and a tad heavier at 3.4 pounds.The screen is the same 13.3 inches wide, though less bright than we’d like. Under the hood, a 1.2-GHz Core 2 Duo, 2 GB of RAM, and a 64-GB solid-state hard drive power it to respectable benchmarks (faster than a standard MacBook but slower than Dell’s XPS M1330). But the X300 really shines by offering every connectivity option you could need, including three USB ports, VGA output, ethernet and a DVD burner. And if that doesn’t cut it, every conceivable wireless radio is also inside the box, from Bluetooth and 802.11n to Verizon 3-G WWAN (plus GPS) and even WiMax”… <Via Wired>

Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

Question: “Ubiquitous connectivity – WiFi ? WiMax ? or Cellular?

What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

Part of Answer # 1

“What do you see as the next coming up technology for ubiquitous connectivity? WiFi or WiMax or 3G or EVDO ? Any other ? Will the emergence of this technology be region specific ? If so, which one is likely to be the one in Asia, US and Europe ?

“The big question is – can WiMAX catch up w or replace Cellular adoption and maturity? Intel and Samsung would like to make it the big connect-anywhere feature for new UMPC’s, but I note that for instance Sprint just delayed its planned US rollout – so we have to wait and see.

Korean WiBro is a Govt supported service up and running, and I have heard that Indian operators will now look to WiMAX for gaining cheap RoW into cities and across slums areas instead of trenching-in fiber”….   Via Linked In Answers

A Google Parallel Internet?

“A mobile datacenter patent has been issued to Google based on its December 2003 filing, giving the company a technology similar to that of Sun’s Project Blackbox.

The timing of the patent, and the beginning of YouTube videos with ads on AdSense, may not be coincidental. Google has made significant promises regarding its AdSense video content.

Delivering on that promise requires infrastructure, an issue that Google probably understands as well as or better than they understand search. Here’s something else to consider.

What if Google rolls out 300 of these datacenters, plugs them into strategically located Internet peering points, and erects big towers next to them to provide wireless Net access. Maybe those towers will use WiMAX technology. Maybe they will work on the up-for-auction 700MHz wireless spectrum”…. <More>

3G and Beyond & The Promises, Problems of WiMax

“Last week, the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) of Korea demonstrated a wireless transmission platform fashionably named the NoLA (Nomadic Local Area Wireless Access). With a download speed of up to 3.6 gigabits per second, it is by far faster than 3G technologies mentioned above.

Theoretically, the NoLA network will enable one to download a DVD movie file in just a couple of seconds, which takes around one minute when using the vernacular 100-megabits line, ETRI said. Previously, the fastest data transmission rate available to users on the move was 1 gigabit per second, which was displayed by Samsung Electronics”….  <More>

Sprint Nextel’s Hidden Advantage

“Reason number one, then, why Sprint Nextel’s WiMax service is different from its competitors is that the company already owns the frequencies, so the effective cost of acquiring them is nothing. Most competing WiMax operations that intend to use licensed frequencies have to pay for those frequencies, which constitute a large part of their network budget. Meanwhile, Sprint Nextel can just move forward and build its network…. <More>

I Could Have Been A Contender- The Mobile Phone Operating System Wars

“Though the PC OS wars were brutal and delivered many clashes over the years, the smartphone OS war may make those battles seem tame. This time, the stakes are even higher, as the market for digital devices is four to five times larger in terms of units. So, which operating-system makers will be the major vendors vying for supremacy in the smartphone market over the next five to eight years? —next: The Contenders > >>> <More>

Video: Toshiba UWB Laptop Demo

LAS VEGAS—At CES 2007, Toshiba gave us a taste of the first Ultra-wideband (UWB) docking station in action, possibly a sign that UWB is taking a stronger foothold in the wireless networking industry. UWB uses USB 2.0 technology to transfer data wirelessly between two computers. Currently, the device only works with the Toshiba R400-S4931, a sleek convertible tablet that has the look of a 13-inch MacBook, except with tablet capabilities.

UWB: An old technology makes new sparks fly

Via The Economist: “With its immunity from interference from buildings, easy co-existence with other forms of radio transmission and an ability to transmit live video streams at gigabit per second speeds over short distances, UWB has had more than its share of hype. But the technology—at least in its guise as a wireless version of the ubiquitous USB cable used to connect computers and cameras to printers and other peripherals—has been catching on fast, as a rival (and perhaps complement) to Bluetooth.So much so, laptop makers like Lenovo and Dell have been hard pressed to meet demand for their latest models that come with UWB connections built in”…..

A Look At The Most Interesting Emerging Technologies

Via Forbes: “One of the core findings from my research is that companies innovate faster than people’s lives change. Think about your mobile phone. Odds are, you use only a fraction of the capability of the phone. Companies have to play this game. The sustaining innovations that move a company along an established improvement trajectory are the life blood of any firm.

Print Your House

If everything goes according to plan, one of the largest printers in the world will soon be rolling into Los Angeles this August. After it is bolted in place, the printer will construct the shell of a full-sized house in less than a week with minimal human intervention. The eventual goal: to use rapid-set concrete to print shell houses in 24 hours that require only electrical and plumbing installation”….  <More>

Mobile 2.0 Rebtel

Rebtel is similar to Skype, only it doesn’t require customers to download special software or use a separate device for making phone calls. You provide them an international number, they provide you a local number. When you dial, Rebtel switches your call to the Internet, allowing for cheap international, mobile-to-mobile communications. Rebtel says users have opened “several hundred thousand accounts.”

“Google, Skype and others in the high-tech industry say large telecom firms stifle innovation by controlling which mobile devices, software and services subscribers can use and “locking” phones to a particular carrier. For example, AT&T has exclusive carriage of Apple Inc.’s iPhone. Those Internet companies have had difficulty bringing services such as free Web calling to the mobile-phone market, while handset makers like Nokia Corp. have had trouble bringing popular European phones to the U.S., where the telecom operators control what phones are used on their networks’….

In 2008 Computer Cables Will Become Obsolete

“Chip designer Alereon Inc. said Monday it is releasing the first chip that uses a frequency band that is legal all over the world for wireless USB, a technology with the potential to cut the tangle of cables surrounding computers.The new chip could prove an important step in persuading computer makers to incorporate the technology. A few wireless USB products are already on the US market, but they send and receive signals over a frequency that is not legal in most of the world because of potential interference with radar.The underlying radio technology is called ultra-wideband, or UWB, and uses frequencies far above those usually employed for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular phones and other wireless technologies. The speeds it can reach are similar to the current capabilities of USB 2.0″…. <More>
