Acer Iconia, the dual screen laptop

Acer Iconia has shown its unique tablet-notebook icon at a press conference today in the world, and at first glance, it seems a bit amazing kit. Dual 14-inch touch screen and built-in personal gesture of support, image certainly stands out from the crowd.

Acer is a tablet bearing Iconia convertible, with a wallpaper that can function as a virtual keyboard, it is a function both as a tablet and a laptop. The two multi-touch screens are 1280 x 800 resolution and the device is able to support 720p HD playback.

Although the twin screens are clearly the biggest draw card with this device, it also comes with AMD dual-core, and a good amount of links. Ratio, the Acer image with an HDMI port, two USB 2.0 ports, USB 3.0, WiFi, 1.3 MP camera and a pair. It seems that the memory and hard disk is customizable, including the 750GB HDD and 4 GB of RAM.

It is not all good news for the Iconia however, with a small battery life and a heavy build at 6.2 pounds. Acer has unveiled a new “concept device” that they think represents the future of laptopping. The guts are respectable, but nothing crazy: Core i5, integrated graphics, 4GB of DDR3, a 2.5″ HDD, 3G, and a USB 3.0 port. They’ve got a few concept touch apps, including a journal and a scrapbook, and a social stream. The “Acer Ring” and gesture editor demonstrate the power of a touchscreen, namely natural gestures like “grabbing” the screen or putting your palms on it, and I’m glad to see that being advanced. The trouble is, this thing runs Windows 7, and Windows 7 just isn’t that touch-friendly. Engadget notes that the keyboard is hard to use, which I would have expected. Close your eyes, take your fingers all off the keyboard, and try hitting P. Now do the same with your fingers resting on the home row. It’s automatic.

Acer offers some interesting ideas on the table here, but in future it is not.

Theaters across the country is full of avid fans armed with sticks, caps, and round-rimmed glasses. Everyone waited midnight when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the first installment of the seventh Harry Potter film, was created to begin. The first of two films the story much more effort and a lot less. For those who have not read the books, I will not reveal all the details of the plot to destroy the film. Although I will give some advice: Take time to read the book before seeing the film. One of the most controversial issues surrounding this band split last book into two films. Emma Watson in particular, came into its own during this film. As the leading character in the series, he plays Harry stills fantastic.

Avid fans of the series shed many a tear. Fans of the books will absolutely not be disappointed by this installment in the movie series.

In its opening moments, the movie begins to set itself apart from the previous franchise films with its dark, somber tone. Times have grown dire for our trio of heroes, as the world falls deeper into Lord Voldemort’s (Ralph Fiennes) grasp. The usual surroundings we know and love are gone; for the first time, Hogwarts is nowhere to be found. Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) remain determined to make good on the promise they made to Dumbledore and hunt down and destroy the horcruxes - the key to defeating Voldemort. Unfortunately, Voldemort and his loyal Death Eaters have grown incredibly powerful since the last film (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). They relentlessly bring the war to Harry and his friends from the beginning of the film. Now, Harry, Hermione and Ron are on the run – completely separated from their allies.

Windows Phone 7 goes on sale!

There is a nice info about Windows Phone 7 smartphones went on sale today at AT&T and T-Mobile retailers in the U.S., although customers are not exactly breaking down doors to buy them in the early going.

Analysts said they expect WP7 sales to build slowly as the holidays approach, especially with a record $500 million TV advertising campaign for the devices.

Neither carrier responded to a request for comment on WP7 sales midday Monday. However, one sales representative for the AT&T store in Framingham, Mass., said a reporter's phone call at about noon today was the first inquiry about WP7 phones at all.

Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. wireless carrier, expects to sell WP7 phones next year, a spokeswoman confirmed.

Analysts said they don't expect WP7 phone sales to ever have the major buzz that accompanies iPhone first-day sales, where hundreds of buyers line up outside of major Apple stores.

Analyst Jack Gold of J.Gold Associates said it will be interesting to watch reaction to WP7 sales. Microsoft marked the first day of sales with a Windows Phone developer blog update by Todd Brix, senior director of Windows Phone Marketplace. Brix said WP7 customers will have access to nearly 2,000 apps and games in the marketplace, double the 1,000-apps goal that Microsoft set in early October.

So far, sales figures for the first batch of Windows Phone 7 smartphones from AT&T and T-Mobile have been scarce, though numbers could start leaking out over the weekend or by Monday.

Apple has typically set the bar for strong launches, with 250,000 units sold the first weekend when the first iPhone went on sale in July 2007; 1.6 million iPhone 3GS units were sold in its first week in June 2009.

With multiple Windows Phone 7 launches this week, it's hard to make an apples-to-apples comparison with other smartphone debuts.

If not, expect the company to remain coy, making general statements about being "pleased" with results and a strong demand for its new phones.
