Launch of ZTE Peel on Sprint Confirmed for November 14th

No comments:



Leaked screenshots confirm the launch of the ZTE Peel, a case to turn your iPod touch into a phone. Sprint plans to launch the device on November 14th, according to BGR.

The ZTE Peel will indeed be hitting the Now Network on November 14th and will retail for $79.99. The plan that Sprint will provide Peel customers is a $29.99, month-to-month, offering that will include a 1GB data allowance; overages will be billed at $0.05 per megabyte. The Wi-Fi case will be able to provide internet access for up to two devices and supports second and third generation iPod touch devices.

It's unclear if Sprint plans to launch a different version of the case for the 4G iPod touch.

Toshiba Announces MacBook Air Blade-Type SSD Modules

No comments:



Toshiba has announced the Blade X-gale SSD series, a new form factor in solid-state storage that debuted with the MacBook Air.

Available now, the new drives are offered in capacities of 64-gigabyte (GB), 128GB and 256GB, with a maximum sequential read speed of 220MB per second (MB/s) and a maximum sequential write speed of 180MB/s. Ideally suited for integration into space-sensitive products, including tablet PCs, laptops, mini-mobile and netbook PCs, Toshiba's latest SSD offering helps these devices achieve a super slim profile.

"Delivering a product that enables superior user experience in a smaller footprint is the ultimate goal," noted Scott Nelson, vice president, Memory Business Unit, Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. "The density of MLC NAND enables the creation of smaller form factor high density storage solutions, and Toshiba, as the technology leader for NAND storage solutions, will continue to innovate in this space."

As mobile devices get smaller and lighter, yet even more feature packed than ever, the SSDs inside them – the heart of storing all of the music and other entertainment data – must be even smaller, and much thinner. Toshiba's new 64GB and 128GB Blade X-gale SSDs are the thinnest available within the company's comprehensive portfolio of SSD solutions. At a thickness of 2.2mm, the modules are 42 percent thinner than that of a typical mSATA SSD, and Toshiba's advanced wiring technology has assured optimized wiring layouts and data transfer rates in this new form factor. Thanks to Toshiba's base design technology that minimizes board warpage during thinning, 256GB capacity can be achieved when mounted on both sides, the largest density in the industry for small type SSD modules. Toshiba also offers designers a choice of mSATA and Half-Slim SSD modules in capacities up to 128GB.

"Until recently, storage designers looking for high capacity storage had accommodated the size of HDD into their designs," continued Nelson. "Up to this point, SSD designs also followed the basic design of small form factor HDD - which does not fully leverage the capabilities of high density NAND technology. Toshiba's module-based SSDs break with this approach, giving hardware designers greater freedom and flexibility in enabling their product design."

This announcement provides an upgrade path for MacBook Air users looking to increase storage. It's unclear if 11.6-inch owners will be able to upgrade to the 256GB stick due to the height difference indicated in the chart below.

Hello,

You don't like PRO Market. OK.

A lot of worker as us, live with Apple Pro Apps, OS X Pro Apps, OS X infrastructure (XServe, XSan, RIP XServe RAID.....)

The end of the XServe is a [knife] in our back... why not sending this activity to Filemaker or making another company: "Apple Pro Consumer" or "Apple iPro"? or licensing Mac OS X Server to VMWare of MSFT HyperV for example? or licensing XServe as you did with Promise for XServe RAID?

We need PRO Serves 1 U.

Thanks for whay you do, but please... not like this...

Best regards.

Sorry for my bad language (I am french)
