[Rumor Smash] That Rounded, Gradient-Covered Rectangle Wasn't The Galaxy S IV, It Was An Expansys Placeholder

[Rumor Smash] That Rounded, Gradient-Covered Rectangle Wasn't The Galaxy S IV, It Was An Expansys Placeholder

Rumors are tricky things. On the one hand, one of the best ways to verify that a suspicious-looking leak is legit is to examine the track record of the leakster. On the other hand, when an image comes out that's nothing but a rounded rectangle with a few gradients, it should be assumed that the picture is complete bunk or, at best, resembles a real device by virtue of adhering to predictable patterns.

    Revision 2 Of The Archos 7 Home Tablet Official, Not Much Better Than The Original

    Revision 2 Of The Archos 7 Home Tablet Official, Not Much Better Than The Original

    Nope, the Archos 70 wasn't the death of the good (or not so good) ol' Archos 7 Home Tablet, apparently. The manufacturer has just let revision 2 of the Archos 7 loose, and while it's still got a resistive touchscreen (ugh), its CPU has been upgraded to an 800 MHz Rockchip processor (the older model was powered by a 600 MHz chip), and it now comes with Android 2.1 (as opposed to Android 1.6 on the original).

    Acer Stream Coming To eXpansys In The UK On August 2nd; Packing Android 2.1, 1GHz Processor, 3.7” AMOLED, HDMI And More For £400

    Acer Stream Coming To eXpansys In The UK On August 2nd; Packing Android 2.1, 1GHz Processor, 3.7” AMOLED, HDMI And More For £400

    The Acer Stream is coming to the UK, and it’s coming soon. Acer’s newest and most powerful Android device to date will initially be available exclusively through eXpansys.com in the UK starting on August 2nd. £400 will get you the device, unlocked. This is your only purchase option, as no carrier subsidies have yet been announced. I will say it’s pretty robust on the spec-sheet. The Stream features:

    • A 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
    • 3.7” WVGA AMOLED Display
    • 512MB ROM / 512MB RAM
    • 2GB Internal (Flash) Memory
    • MicroSD Card Slot
    • WiFi (presumably B/G/N), Bluetooth, and GPS
    • Mini HDMI-out
    • 3.5mm Headphone Jack
    • 720P (24FPS) Video Recording
    • 5MP Camera
    • Android 2.1 with Acer Touch 3D UI 4.0

    And here is the Stream, in all its glory:

    The first thing I notice about the Stream is its lack of a trackball, d-pad, or optical trackpad.
