Sprint have announced the LG Rumor2, the sequel to the popular Rumor messaging handset, complete with a full QWERTY slide-out keyboard, 1.3-megapixel camera, QVGA display and stereo Bluetooth.  The Rumor2 also includes GPS – with Sprint Navigation preloaded – and a media player happy with microSD cards up to 16GB in size.

Other specs include access to webmail accounts and corporate email (the latter via the Sprint Mobile Email Work system) and two interchangeable back covers so you can “personalize” your Rumor2.  The most significant change from the original LG Rumor is an extra row of keys on the QWERTY ‘board, which should make typing messages a whole lot easier.

From this point on, PSP games will be launched in both UMD and digital formats, through a new desktop app called Media Go that will sync with the PlayStation Network, as well as directly to the PSP Go! itself.  Video will also be supported, with more than 9,400 TV shows and 1,900 movies on offer, together with an automatic music playlist borrowed from Sony Ericsson’s cellphones, called Sense Me.

The Sony PSP Go! will hit shelves in the US and Europe on October 1st, followed by a November 1st launch in Japan.  It’ll be priced at $249 and €249, and available in white and black.

With an Ultra-Portable Design and Digital Content Focus, PSPgo to Hit the Worldwide Market This Fall, Further Enhancing the User Experience Along with PSP-3000

LOS ANGELES, Calif., June 2, 2009 –Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today unveiled PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) go (PSP-N1000), a new evolution of PSP handheld entertainment system, specifically designed to suit the digital lifestyle of consumers who enjoy downloadable content on the go.

PSPgo is ideal for today’s on-the move consumers who prefer not to carry around disc-based content and are looking for on-demand entertainment. With the steady expansion of broadband network infrastructure, the number of users who download and enjoy digital entertainment content has been increasing remarkably. To address this growing trend, PSPgo replaces the UMD drive*1 with 16GB of flash memory to store a variety of digital entertainment content, offering users unlimited possibilities of portable digital entertainment delivered through PlayStation®Network. PSPgo, smaller and lighter than ever with a sophisticated design featuring an easy sliding display panel, is truly pocket-sized and can be taken everywhere. PSPgo will be available in Piano Black and Pearl White*2, two of the most popular colors since the launch of the PSP system in 2004. Along with PSP-3000, PSPgo will further enhance the unmatched portable gaming and entertainment experience by offering users more opportunity to enjoy their favorite entertainment content such as games, videos, music and photos anytime, anywhere.

In order to meet the needs of the growing number of PlayStation®Network users looking for digital entertainment content, SCE along with third party developers and publishers will continue to enhance the content line-up within PlayStation®Store for the launch of PSPgo, scheduled this fall. More and more new and attractive titles will become available for download from PlayStation®Store as well as on UMD™.

In addition to accessing PlayStation Store directly from PSP using the built-in wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) feature or through the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3®) computer entertainment system, users will also be able to access and download a variety of entertainment content via their PCs using Media Go*3, a new software application. Media Go will enable users to access and download entertainment content on PlayStation Store via their PCs as well to easily manage PSP content on PCs, including games, videos, photos, and music. This easy to use software application will be available on a CD-ROM bundled with PSPgo.

Also this fall, a new music application specific to PSP that uses the “SensMe™ channels”*4; music recommendation feature, developed by Sony, also becomes available for download on PSP. With this music application, users will be able to enjoy their favorite music stored on their PSP through a rich user interface, designed exclusively for PSP. “SensMe channels” is a mood based music recommendation system that categorizes music content into channels such as “Relax,” “Dance” and “Upbeat,” and recommends music playlists for users.

Other features are:

Easy Sliding Display Panel and Original Applications

PSPgo has unique features such as game sleep function which enables users to operate XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) while pausing gameplay temporarily.

Bluetooth® function

Bluetooth function will also allow users to connect Bluetooth standard peripherals such as head-phones and head-set *5 as well as PS3 wireless controller (DUALSHOCK®3 and SIXAXIS®) *6 to be used when watching video content on TVs via PSP at home*7.

Also included in the peripheral line-up are video-out port cables that enable users to enjoy games and videos on their TVs at home.

Nvidia Geforce Gts 450 1Gb Gets Official For $129

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 1GB gets official for $129

NVIDIA has given the official nod to the new GeForce GTS 450 video card, an “affordable” model that still attempts to deliver decent gaming performance.  In fact, the company reckons the Fermi-based card packs 2.4x the geometry processing performance over its predecessor, along with DirectX 11 support and a roughly $129 price tag.

More interesting, perhaps, is NVIDIA’s claim that the GeForce GTS 450 1GB is up to 65-percent faster than AMD’s ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB, something we can’t imagine their arch rivals are happy about.  There’s also support for NVIDIA 3D Vision and SLI for multi-card setups.

ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle and Zotac are all launching GeForce GTS 450 cards, so you’re spoilt for choice if you’re in the mood for Fermi but aren’t feeling flush.

New NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 Delivers DX11 Done Right to Even More PC Gamers

New GeForce GTS 450 Delivers 2.4X Geometry Processing Performance Over Previous Generation Products

‘The GeForce GTS 450 makes huge strides in expanding DX11 capability to the masses. Civilization V plays beautifully on the GTS 450 and looks even more amazing with 3D Vision technology.’

–Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development, Firaxis Games

‘We are excited about the GeForce GTS 450, which brings awesome performance to a very affordable price point. By delivering a great gaming experience mixed with some cutting-edge features such as support for 3D Vision, we are confident that fans of Dead Rising 2 will have a great platform to play on.’

–Shinsaku Ohara, Producer of Dead Rising 2, Capcom

SANTA CLARA, CA — (Marketwire) — 09/13/2010 — NVIDIA today announced the latest addition to its Fermi-class of graphics processing units (GPUs), the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 450 — which was designed to deliver the best DX11 price/performance in the $129 USD price category. According to the latest Steam survey, a leading indicator of the hardware used by PC gamers today, 56 percent(i) of gamers play at mainstream resolutions, typically between 1600×1050 and 1280×1024. The GTS 450 was specifically designed to excel at these resolutions, delivering awesome DX11 performance with 4X antialiasing turned on, enabling more gamers than ever before to experience incredibly detailed characters, terrain and game environments with blazing fast performance and awesome visuals.

For games and applications that feature tessellation — the key feature of DX11 — the GTS 450 is up to 65% faster than the closest competitive product(ii). Even in last generation DX9 and DX10 games, the GTS 450 is faster by over 30%(iii), including in the blockbuster PC title StarCraft II. This makes the GTS 450 a terrific GPU for playing this year’s hottest games including the upcoming holiday titles like Civilization V and Hawx2, both of which feature support for DX11 and tessellation, and other games, such as Dead Rising 2.

“The GeForce GTS 450 makes huge strides in expanding DX11 capability to the masses,” said Sid Meier, Director of Creative Development, Firaxis Games. “Civilization V plays beautifully on the GTS 450 and looks even more amazing with 3D Vision technology.”

“We are excited about the GeForce GTS 450, which brings awesome performance to a very affordable price point,” said Shinsaku Ohara, Producer of Dead Rising 2 at Capcom. “By delivering a great gaming experience mixed with some cutting-edge features such as support for 3D Vision, we are confident that fans of Dead Rising 2 will have a great platform to play on.”

With full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision™ technology, the GeForce GTS 450 also provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience games and high definition Blu-ray movies in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D. And with NVIDIA SLI technology, the industry’s most scalable multi-GPU platform, gamers will be ecstatic to almost double their gaming performance by adding a second GTS 450 to their PC, when budget allows.

The GeForce GTS 450 is available starting today from the world’s leading add-in card partners, including ASL, ASUS, Colorful, ECS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, Jetway, KFA2, Leadtek, MSI, Palit, Point of View, PNY, Sparkle, Zotac and others.

Apple’s March 21St ‘Let Us Loop You In’ Event Is Official: 4

Apple has officially announced its upcoming spring event (via @tim) scheduled for March 21st in Cupertino at Apple’s 1 Infinite Loop campus at 10 am PT/1 pm ET. The company is expected to introduce the 4-inch iPhone SE, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, new Apple Watch bands, software updates, and more. As for what’s in store for this event, this is what’s rumored and what we expect to see:

Apple has historically saved new iPhone launches for the fall starting with the iPhone 4s in 2011, but we’re expecting that to change at this year’s spring event.

The iPhone SE is expected to be a 4-inch model in a lineup of flagship 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones. As a smaller device that won’t exactly be flagship status, the iPhone SE will likely feature a mix of specs from the iPhone 6 and 6s but packaged in an iPhone 5-sized casing.

As we reported, these features and specifications include the faster A9 chip and M9 chip with always-on Siri and Live Photos feature introduced in the iPhone 6s, Apple Pay introduced in the iPhone 6, 16/64GB models, and space gray/silver/gold/rose gold finishes.

We’ve also reported schematics via a case maker that show a nearly identical design to iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s for the iPhone SE, save for slightly curved edges. The power button is also expected to be located on top like the iPhone 5 and not on the side like the iPhone 6.

The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is expected to be a smaller version of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro introduced last fall. Apple typically updates its 9.7-inch tablet annually, but focused instead last year on refreshing the 7.9-inch iPad mini and introducing the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. While rumors have referred to the next mid-size tablet as the iPad Air 3, 9to5Mac has reported that Apple will likely call it the iPad Pro.

Rumored changes include adopting the larger iPad Pro’s quad-speaker design, adding Apple Pencil support, bumping up from the A8X and M8 chips to the A9X and M9 chips, a possible Smart Connector, and maybe even a rear flash for photography which would be a first for any iPad. 9to5Mac has reported that Apple is considering bumped up camera specs for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, too, which adds credibility to the camera flash rumor.

Both of these devices will likely be available within a matter of days, not weeks, after the event.

While the Apple Watch hardware isn’t expected to be upgraded until later this fall, we are expecting to see new Sport band colors, a space black version of the Milanese Loop, and maybe even all-new NATO-style nylon straps that 9to5Mac originally reported as being in development.

Finally, Apple has been testing new feature-packed versions of each of its software platforms — iOS 9.3, OS X 10.11.4, watchOS 2.2, and tvOS 9.2 — which don’t yet have final versions or release dates but are expected to debut for everyone around this event. A standalone update to iTunes that enhances the Apple Music experience is also expected to be unveiled.

9to5Mac will be covering the event in detail on March 21st; as many of you already know, I’m really excited for this one so stay tuned!

We’Ll See The Tesla Model 3 On March 31

We’ll see the Tesla Model 3 on March 31

Tesla’s most affordable car, the Model 3, will make its grand debut on March 31st, the company has confirmed today. The news came as part of Tesla’s financial results for Q4 and full-year 2023, amid a 76-percent increase in Model S deliveries.

The Tesla Model 3 is arguably the most hotly anticipated of the company’s vehicles, given it promises to bring Tesla ownership within reach of a far larger cohort of drivers.

Exactly how much it will cost will depend on where the Model 3 is bought. While Tesla reconfirmed to SlashGear this week that the smaller car will start at $35,000, that price is ahead of federal and state incentives.

Those tax breaks and rebates could potentially shave as much as $10,000 off the cost of the car, bringing the Model 3 to around $25,000 and in the process undercutting Chevrolet’s Bolt EV which is expected to come in at $30k after incentives.

As for production of the Model 3, however, that’s not expected to kick off until late in 2023. Tesla says customer deliveries of the car will also begin before 2023 is through.

In addition to the unveil of the car itself, Tesla plans a significant investment as it ramps up to begin production. According to the firm, around $1.5bn will be spent in 2023 as a whole, on production machinery for the Model 3, Gigabattery cell production – some of which will power the new car – and around 80 new retail and service centers.

Some of the cash will also be spent on installing around 300 new Superchargers, Tesla says. It’s unclear at this stage whether the Model 3 will be eligible for free Supercharger use, as is the case with the more expensive Model S and the new Model X SUV.

As for that SUV, Tesla says that it purposefully capped production in January this year so as to hit quality targets. For the remainder of the current quarter, though, it’s expecting to increase manufacturing, with a goal of 1,000 Model X rolling off the line each week come Q2 2023.

Still, you’ll struggle to find a Model X in showrooms if you go looking for one, though Elon Musk says that demo vehicles should begin filtering through “in the weeks to come.”

Financially, Tesla made $179m in Q4 2023, selling over 25k Model S across the year as a whole. That was a slight decrease of less than 1-percent compared to 2014, though Tesla says that it managed to trim production costs for the car at the same time.

By the end of this year, in fact, Tesla predicts Model S gross margin will be near 30-percent.

Even so, it was a surprise loss – and a sizable one – for the electric car darling. Losses for the year came to almost $889m, with a $107m loss in Q4 alone. As a result, the firm has burned through around $700m in its cash reserves, which now come in just shy of $1.2bn.

As for the potential hit of falling gasoline prices, which had led some market watchers to predict toppling demand for electric cars, Tesla claims not to have been affected.

“[We] continue to see no perceptible impact to our order growth from the change in the price of gasoline as our order rates have continued to increase even as the price of gasoline has fallen,” Musk and CFO Jason Wheeler wrote today. “In fact, our customers tell us they value a Tesla vehicle more for its superior performance, technology, safety, lower environmental impact and style than for its ability to save money on fuel.”

NOW READ: Tesla could unveil 2 new cars in March

Now, all eyes will be on the Model 3 come March 31, to see just how much of the car is actually demonstrated – whether in images alone, a stationary mock-up, or a working prototype – and hear just how its specifications line up against the growing number of EV rivals.

School Activity Chaos Gets Organised On Clipboard

These three Under-30 entrepreneurs knew there was a better way to engage students, parents and schools in extracurricular activities.

Research shows students involved with extracurricular activities are more engaged in the classroom, show greater resilience and have better mental health.

But sometimes trying to organise those activities can be chaotic, lack clear communication and can be a huge drain on a school’s time and money resources.

Three friends who had experienced those difficulties during their education and returned to their high school to coach basketball thought they could organise things better for the schools, the students and the parents, so they designed Clipboard, an Extracurricular Management System (EMS).

Five years after building the idea from a university project, co-founders Ed Colyer, 27, Sam Clarke, 25, and Christiaan Hind, 29, have more than 100 schools using the platform to manage performing arts, music and sports activities. The ed-tech startup now has 25 staff and just closed a $3.1 million capital raise, attracting lead investment from specialist SaaS venture capital investor EVP alongside Jelix Ventures and Sprint Ventures.

“Clipboard is an app that schools use to run extracurricular activities. We think every student has something to gain from participation in activities outside the classroom. There are countless studies that show how doing things outside the classroom helps you inside the classroom and helps your mental health. We had that experience ourselves when we were at school; I played basketball, played piano and did coding,” says Colyer. “The Clipboard app equips school with the tools they need to save time and money on administration, it helps with communication to staff, students and parents and helps them to meet their duty of care.”

Schools across Australia have signed up and one school in Malaysia. Colyer says the team sees the market being any school around the world and any company that is a provider of extracurricular activities.

Clipboard can integrate with a school’s existing system so there’s no extra login and the application can provide a seamless experience for users wanting to join performing arts, music or sporting activities outside of regular classroom lessons.

The app can show what engagement there is in the activities being offered. The analytics and data can highlight take-up and drop-off in participation rates to help give knowledge about areas to target if schools feel they should be encouraging more interest and can show what activities are the most popular for better management.

“In 2023, we were able to grow more than 3x our annual recurring revenue. That was a good sign that we had first instance product market fit. We want to double down on that by investing in the platform, expanding the features and functions. We want to broaden the schools we are serving in Australia and expand into New Zealand and Southeast Asia. We want to take the product, market and sales to the next level,” says Colyer in an interview with Forbes Australia.

“We want to be helping students across the world and be a global company. There are competitors in other countries, but we know that what we have is applicable overseas. We saw that when we went into Malaysia. There are more than 10,000 English-speaking international schools in Asia. We raised this money to have a platform that we are propelling from. We’re scaling the sales team. We want to grow in a sustainable way. There is so much more that we want to do for our existing parents, students and schools.”
