Galaxy Notes is one of the protagonists of the IFA 2011, which Samsung has already spent a mini-site and the first in a series of promotional spots. Now, despite the official price and exact date of arrival are not yet known information, the store Clove English announces the ability to accept pre-orders with prices equal to 600 pounds, about 680 euros, 100 euros on the lists we estimated this model, or 549 euros as confirmed by the vice-president of Samsung France, but also far from 700/800 euros of which speculated during the fair in Germany.
TechRadar notes that the 600 pounds of Clove are the same needed to buy a 32GB iPhone at launch 4. But the Galaxy has some unique features in the Notes field, and I do not think it makes much sense to compare it with other models (but has to give way to important figures in dance). Its 5.3-inch screen AMOLED Super Plus is the only mounted on a smartphone, with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and high contrast, the same can be said for dual core CPU at 1.4GHz, and the integration of the Android with the TouchWiz interface and the new UX series of apps Samsung D-Pen, use the dedicated pen provided (here’s the complete file)
The advance has so little English officer, but it is one of the steps forward that will lead to effective marketing of Samsung Galaxy Notes. In this regard, there was talk in Europe of November, but it seems that the British carriers are more convinced of arrival for the Christmas holidays. We’ll see.
Consumer electronics company Medion is launching a new Android tablet called the Medion LifeTab. I’d be surprised if it’s ever released in the US, as Medion’s devices tend to show up primarily in Europe, but it’s expected to launch in time for the holidays in Europe for about 399 Euros.
The Medion LifeTab has a moderately unusual design with a rather large screen bezel and rounded edges. The rest of the specs look pretty typical.
The tablet has a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel capacitive multitouch display, and Android 32. operating system. It has 32GB of storage plus a microSD card slot for expansion, a 5MB rear camera and 2MP front camera, and a 24.7 Whr battery which is good for up to 10 hous of run time.
You also get HDMI output, GPS, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and quad-band HSDPA. Medion also loads up the tablet with a few extra apps including Documents To Go and LifeTab media software.
The “day two” of the IFA 2011 in Berlin saw the presentation of the first Ultrabook Toshiba and Lenovo. Of the latter, U300S IdeaPad, we have already seen the general characteristics and the first video hands-on, now is the time of the Toshiba model.
It’s called Portege Z830. We still speak of a 13.3-inch ultraportable, the lightest of this size according to Toshiba with its 1.2Kg weight and thickness of 16mm. Like its ASUS, Lenovo and Acer, Toshiba Ultrabook uses the latest Intel Core-i3, i5 and i7 mounted in a frame designed to dissipate heat without the use of fans (fanless). He drives up to 128GB SSD, up to 6GB of RAM, USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI and VGA outputs, Ethernet and SD card reader, WiFi and Widi (optional). To the delight of those who work outdoors, Toshiba chose a matte screen for this new model.
Toshiba Portege Z830 features a 47Whr battery, good for 8 hours of battery life according to the company, and a keyboard that is not only an island but also backlit liquid-resistant, a feature that we are not accustomed to seeing on ultra “low-cost “. It ‘true that we speak always of Ultrabook, and certainly not of an economic model, but remain below $ 1000 Toshiba announced today it would be a success. Expected arrival: Q4 2011 (November).
Those who have tried to show an excellent build quality speaks German, a very good touchpad and an excellent keyboard; the only flaw, for the moment, is the size, larger than those of some rivals because of frame above and below the screen. Under the video armdevices.net.
For those interested in getting their hands on a hands-free video recording device, Toshiba announced today at IFA the Camileo Clip mini recorder.
The device features a clip at the back (hence the name) that will allow the user to clip it onto a shirt pocket or a jacket, and given how it only weighs 85g, we have a feeling that you will be able to clip it onto yourself and eventually forget that it’s even there, not to mention that its dimensions measure 46.5mm x 80mm, it seems to be relatively intrusive-free.
It appears to be tailored for outdoorsy people in mind as it is said to sport a rugged case that is splash-proof. It comes with a 5MP CMOS sensor with back side illumination (BSI) technology with 10x zoom for both photo and video capture.
It will support a variety of memory cards, including microSD, SDHC and SDXC with a maximum storage capacity of 64GB. It’s expected to be made available in Europe in Q4 but unfortunately there has been no word on how much it will cost or if it will grace the shelves in the US.
The company distributes branded Philips LCD monitor (MMD Monitors & Displays,), IFA in Berlin will present a series of monitors and new technologies. The new Philips technology in the design of sophisticated monitors LightFrame Family Fashion catalyze the attention of visitors, and a 3D gaming will dispaly the gaming experience to new levels.
In the premiere will be presented with a Philips monitor technology “ErgoSensor” that is able to recognize the ways in which the user is in front of the screen and can facilitate the recruitment of a more ergonomically proper posture.
All this happens thanks to the ability to analyze the position of the face in relation to the monitor. To enable this feature is a camera equipped with a CMOS processor. The images captured by the camera are analyzed by software that focuses on the interaction of the person with the surrounding environment. The suggestions that are given to the user about his posture that is spending time in front of the monitor, may help prevent fatigue and back pain, as well as many other health problems due to work.
Together with ErgoSensor screen technology, will be also possible to see a family with an exclusive Philips technology LightFrame fashion, that issues around the frame of the monitor a light, cool blue light that helps to improve concentration. Thanks to the attractive design of the line fashion, these new monitors have a 16:9 special aesthetic line, representing very well the current technology trends.

More importantly, the monitor is equipped with the technology and SmartImage TouchControl that ensure a comfortable user experience
IFA 2011 will kick off in Berlin very soon and at the show LG will be unveiling a pair of new LCDs including the E91 and the D237IPS LCD screens. The E91 is very thin at 7.2mm thick taking up as little space as possible on the desk. The bezel of the screen is 4.35mm thick giving the screen a slick and almost borderless style. The display also uses hanger type stand to allow for precise adjustment for viewing angles when using the screen.
The other display is the D237IPS using the LG Film Pattern Retarder 3D display tech on an IPS panel. The IPS panel tech is able to offer a clearer and brighter 3D image than other panel tech available.The screen is certified by TUV Flicker-Free and Intertek to reduce dizziness and Headaches Associated with Producing the screen flicker.

The contrast ratio of the screen is 5M:1. Pricing and availability details are unknown at this time.
We don’t mind eyeballing a few impossibly clean renders when we get wind of a new toy, but there’s nothing like the real McCoy. Today’s bones slipped out of a (now pulled) HDblog hands-on of the Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook, possibly leaked ahead of an IFA 2011 embargo. The genuine article looks nearly identical to its rendered counterpart, albeit a bit thicker and more plasticky. The unveiled 13.3-inchMacBook Air competitor reportedly sports a second generation Intel Core processor, boots from sleep in under two seconds, and is only 13mm thick. The price? While there is no official word on this exactmodel, Acer head-honcho JT Wang mentioned last week that the outfit was prepping to launch a new Ultrabook in September for about $800. Lines up nicely with the Acer 3951′s rumored $770-960 price range, doesn’t it?
The new LG LSM-100 is not an ordinary mouse, because it comes equipped with a built-in scanner. This laser mouse allows you to scan page sizes of up to A3 size. Along with the left, right and back mouse buttons, the LSM-100 also features a Smart Scan button on its left side that, when held down, allows the user to swipe the mouse over the material to be scanned. Scanned images can be saved in PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP, PDF, XLS or DOC format, or dragged and dropped into the desired application. The LG LSM-100 also adopts the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to convert scanned text into editable text within a Microsoft Word document. The company will launch the LSM-100 in Europe later this month for $150.
