Could this be the iPad and iPhone’s long awaited camera?

by Savan Thongvanh February 15, 2010

I think we’ve all realized that the mobile device race is not about size anymore. Today’s race is about feature density and Toshiba has leapt past all of it competition in the mobile camera department.

Today Toshiba announced a TWELVE megapixel camera and chip for mobile. With most a US domestic cameras using cameras at or below 5 megapixels this is a chip that really pushes Moore’s law.

by Savan Thongvanh February 7, 2010

With this weeks announcement of the Apple iPad they now say they have a new category of device. Some say that the new category is just a bigger version of everything else they have. We’ll let the tale of the tape tell the story.

I’ll give you a hint, if you squint a little at the spec comparisons you won’t be able to tell iPad from iPhone from iTouch.

Let’s check out the specs Apples to Apples (to Apples).

Revisiting specs and speculation: Will the Apple iPad do what I thought?

by Savan Thongvanh

Last week I speculated on how the Apple iPad would change your life for the better. Now that the Apple iPad is out of the bag let’s see if it lives up to my hype.

See my previous post for the theories and here how they came to fruition, or not. If you didn’t see it you can catch it here. First the specs. the Apple iPad will be released with Apple’s own 1ghz A4 processor. They can do this because they recently acquired a company that makes processors. It will ship as a 10 inch tablet with no OLED but instead an LCD screen. It’ll be 1/2 an in thick and weigh in at 1 1/2 pounds. Very mobile. The wireless standard will be wifi, N to be exact, and the optional 3g will be provided by ATT with all you can eat for $30 per month. You can get it in 60 days and will go from $400 to $800 with prices varying with memory and the 3g option.
