Video of a prototype Android smartphone with an e-ink display has been put online. The Onyx International EINK smartphone uses an e-ink display instead of a normal handset screen, which allows the phone to not only be viewable in direct sunlight, but can also run for up to a week on a single battery charge.
Storage products maker OCZ has showed off its latest solid state drive, the Onyx 2 Series. The 2.5-inch SSDs are said to be priced lower than competing products but still sport SandForce controllers. Their maximum read speeds are rated at 270MBps, while write speeds peak at 265MBps.
A low-key update to the BlackBerry Bold 9700 could be enroute based on multiple rumors. The design, nicknamed Onyx II, would be identical on the outside but would have a new processor with OpenGL-capable graphics, twice as much RAM at 512MB and a five-megapixel camera. RIM would almost certainly load the new phone with BlackBerry OS 6.0 and get the benefits of both the faster graphics and the vaunted WebKit browser.
