Kohjinsha DZ dual screen netbook

The less I can say about the Kohjinsha DZ is that it's completely different to any thing that I have seen in the last 3 years. It will hit the market next month but only in Japan. And that's really bad. I really do not understand what's what this company is waiting to start selling every where in the world.



It comes with two 10.1 inch LCD screens that slide together to make transporting the thing easier, with each screen having s a resolution of 1024 x 600. The screens rotate too, all the way round so they can face backwards.

The Netbook runs on a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor with S780MN chipset and ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics.

Google Chrome OS, all time connected

Recently I found a video, and honestly I do not remember where in the web,  where Google explains What’s Google Chrome OS. To summarize, an all time connected to the cloud OS. A version of Android and I even hesitate to say this because it seems to me that Android does much more thanks to all the applications currently available for this OS. In the way the video explains it, sounds like we all expend 100% of our time in Internet. And probably that’s the case when you are at home, but if I take my day and analyze it, I expend 10 hours at work, around 2 hours at home no connected, around 4 hours at home connected and 8 hours sleeping. That means that I have 10 hours using a PC where I spend just a few minutes in Internet and only 4 hours per day where potentially I could be using Google Chrome for everything. I don’t know if you are getting me point. Google Chrome is not for everybody. I see it in my case like a really good option for a dual boot configuration. But no as my only one OS, unless it’s in a device which only use will be Internet.

Now the question is, will Google Chrome OS be prepared to cover or be fully compatible with all the hardware currently in the market? Because that has been the  biggest problem that Windows always has faced and the cause of most of the problems and instability of this OS, drivers. are we going to have a full plug and play OS or another version of MacOS?

And here is the video:

Kohjinsha PA review

Pocketables has posted a very interesting review about the Kohjinsha PA. After ready it I arrived to this conclusion: Beauty is a very complicate criteria. I find the Series PA exterior design attractive.


From a usability standpoint, the Kohjinsha PA series packs a lot of function into a portable package weighing just 14.1 ounces. The convertible form factor is versatile and encourages a wide range of usage scenarios, while Windows XP makes it a fairly robust system to carry around in a pocket. Unfortunately, because of its high price, unique aesthetics, and limited RAM, I don't think the PA will be able to find success in the already niche market of UMPCs and MIDs.

Dell Inspiron Zino HD

Dell has just released what's in my opinion on of the best Media Center machines in the market: Inspiron Zino HD. Why I'm saying this?


  • Very small I easy to hide in your living room.
  • Starting price of $229
  • Full customizable with options for a Dual Core AMD processor and an ATI Radeon HD 4330 512 MB Specifications - Video Card video chip.
  • HDMI and VGA output.
  • 1080p full capable.
  • Integrated DVD player and Burner and an optional Blue-ray player.

Here is the First review I have found about this just released machine.

…this is quite a capable little device that was whisper quiet with low power requirements. It was able to handle just about everything I could throw at it without issue. Even at the base configuration, to have such an elegantly designed, HD capable machine available at for $229 from Dell is astounding. It would be hard to build a similar machine yourself at that price.

Kindle in an UMPC

Kindle for PC has been released by Amazon. I should had post about it but I did not and the reason is because I own a Kindle and I would never go back to read a book in a PC, PPC or any other LCD or similar display. Beside the fact that the visual experience is not the same, an UMPC is too heavy for the task and a PPC, iPhone, etc, are too small. Christmas  is coming guys, save some money and get the real thing. Anyway… Here is a video showing Kindle running in an UMPC.

enTourage eDGe, new eReader with dual screen

The enTourage eDGe is one of those cases where I sit for moment to think, is this what the market wants? I mean, it’s nice but I would prefer to wait for a color e-ink screen instead of sacrifice my battery life in a LCD touch screen.

Since long time ago I have not seen a notebook design that I could had called innovative. All looks the same but this one, the Rolltop from Orkin Design.


It’s hard to believe that what you are seen in the above picture is a notebook. If you don’t believe it check the video in their page.

Eston MID-05 MID and N97 coming soon

It seems that the MID concept finally is picking some steam because lately there are a bunch of new devices being released. This time we have two new MID coming from a company called Eston, the MID 05 and the N97 both using Android thou the first one could be loaded with Windows CE too.


The company has sliced off the hardware keyboard from their MID-02 and produced the touchscreen-only MID-05, a 5-inch handheld running either Android or Windows CE.  If your fingers are too chubby for that, Eston also have the N97 MID, with a larger 7-inch touchscreen and integrated 3G.
