Inbrics M1 gets Android 2.1, 1GHz processor

It looks like a smartphone, it has a
smartphone's form factor,
operating system, and an extra-
slim slideout QWERTY keyboard,
yet Inbrics still insists on calling the
M1 a Mobile Internet Device
instead. When the company's not
busy sinking its own battleships, it
appears to be doing actually
beneficial stuff, such as cramming a
new 1GHz Samsung CPU inside its
device. The original 800MHz unit
was the thing that worried us most
during our otherwise praise-filled
hands-on experience with the M1
at CES, so it's a good sign to see it
getting a bit of extra brawn ahead
of launch. The software has also
moved with the times, with
Android 2.1 being the current OS on
tap, which should look rather nice
on that 3.7-inch OLED display. The
M1 will have WiFi, but no cellular
connectivity is planned just yet. It's
all dependent on having a Western
vendor pick up the hardware and
infuse it with its own requirements.
Although at CES we were told to
expect the M1 in March, the current
timetable is for a July launch in
Korea and US availability by the
end of the year, provided Inbrics
finds a partner for the device.
Netbook News have also finally
squeezed a price out of the
company and have been told to
expect it in the "low $200" range.
Sounds kinda promising, don't you

Intel Set to Release Six-core Core i7-980X Processor

Most of us run dual core processors on our laptops and a privileged few even have quad core processors. That ain't enough for you? Intel would release its six-core Core i7-980X Extreme Edition 'Gulftown' processor in a few days in Germany.
This beast is expected to have a price tag of €1049 ($1420) which isn't too high if you wanna be the dude with the highest braging rights in town.
