Tablet Fujitsu Stylistic con Windows 7 si presenta in video


Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 è il nuovo tablet con sistema operativo Windows 7 che si appresta a uscire in commercio negli Stati Uniti dopo aver fatto la sua apparizione nello shop ufficiale per il pre-ordine, vedi fonte. Si tratta di un modello che punta sull’OS di Microsoft e non su quello di Google come ormai buona parte della torta dei concorrenti. Stiloso e morbido nelle linee, abbastanza performante (ma non troppo) nella scheda tecnica, fa parte della famiglia di dispositivi con diagonale di display da 10.1 pollici. Qui sopra un video ufficiale, sotto una foto e la lista specs.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 non fa dunque parte della sempre più corposa famiglia dei tablet con sistema operativo Android, ma di quel settore poco frequentato – ma non per questo meno interessante – delle tavolette digitali con OS Windows 7 di Microsoft.
 
Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 punta su uno schermo capacitivo touchscreen da 10.1 pollici con una risoluzione WVGA e soprattutto con una luminosità di ben 400 nits. Dal peso di 750 grammi circa, ha le medesime dimensioni dei nuovi Motorola Xoom e Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 presentati al MWC 2011.
 

 
Le rimanenti specs di Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 prevedono un processore Intel Atom, una memoria Ram da 2GB, non si fa mancare HDMI, USB 2.0, GPS, modulo Gobi 3000 broadband, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi e mount VESA. Costerà meno di 800 dollari.

PlayBook Android app support mentioned during demo at MWC, old BlackBerrys show up in ShopSavvy’s Android logs


As far-fetched as it may seem, rumors that RIM is working on some sort of Android app support for its QNX-based PlayBook tablet have persisted in various forms for months now -- and they've turned up once again in a video posted by development community MobileMonday's Rio chapter taken at MWC earlier this month, where a RIM rep seemingly says "we will also support Android apps" after talking about Java-based offerings. Of course, this could've been staged by some rabble rousers or a rep could've simply been echoing back the rumors he's seen on the interwebs -- but regardless, it adds fuel to the fire. Follow the break to see the video of that.

But it gets weirder. ShopSavvy -- which makes versions of its app for iOS and Android -- has started turning up a couple of older BlackBerry devices in its Android build's usage statistics on Flurry: the Curve 8300 and 8520, to be specific, along with an 8600 model that doesn't exist (at least, not yet). The 8300, in particular, is pretty ancient at this point and we're having a hard time wrapping our brain around RIM's game plan in porting Dalvik (or a Dalvik-like) VM and associated libraries over to it; if anything, Flurry could be confused. Then again, a next-generation full-touch BlackBerry that just happens to run a full suite of Android apps in a sandbox could be a pretty compelling product, indeed.

Gmail accidentally resetting accounts, years of correspondence vanish into the cloud? (update)


If you've got a working Gmail account, you might want to back it up every so often -- as many as 500,000 Gmail users lost access to their inboxes this morn, and some of them are reporting (via Twitter and support forums) that years worth of messages, attachments and Google Chat logs had vanished by the time they were finally able to log on. While we haven't experienced the issue personally, we're hearing that the bug effectively reset some accounts, treating their owners as new users complete with welcome messages. For its part, Google says that the issue "affects less than .29% of the Google Mail userbase," engineers are working to fix the issue right now, and that missing messages will be restored as soon as possible. We'll soon see if this is a momentary setback... or a lengthy wakeup call.

Update: No fix yet, but Google's revised its estimate as to how many users might have been affected by the issue -- "less than 0.08%" -- which means we're probably looking at closer to 150,000 individuals, rather than 500,000. We're assuming that the revised estimate means that the initial count wasn't precise, and not that customers are ditching Gmail in droves.

Motorola Xoom overclocked to 1.5GHz, eats Quadrant and Linpack for breakfast (video)


Hold on to your hats, gents, because things just got real -- that's a Motorola Xoom in the picture above, clocked at a blazing 1.504GHz. While we highly doubt that's a new world record of any sort, the dual-core Tegra 2 inside seriously screams at that clockspeed, scorching Quadrant to the tune of 3105 (remember this?) and delivering 47 MFLOPS in Linpack. Oh, and in case you're curious, this achievement wasn't some random hack. It was perpetrated for our collective benefit by the master of SetCPU himself, and you'll find full video proof of his accomplishment below and instructions at our source link. Got root? Then you're on your way.

[Thanks, Adam B.]
