Pocket-lint reports that the BlackBerry 9000 series rumours are not going away, after recently getting some Wall Street analyst backing, there is now a spy shot that's emerged on the BlackBerry forums site.
Posted by someone suposedly based in Waterloo, where RIM's Canadian headquarters are, with only the word "Enjoy" as a comment, this could be the new form factor of handsets due in the first half of 2008.
The 9000 series were strongly rumoured to be toting full touchscreen capabilities, as you will see in the pic, this keeps RIM's now iconic device design but with more curved edges and a splash of aluminium.
There's no way of knowing whether this is a mock-up, early prototype, or even complete fake, but we'll keep you informed as and when more emerges on the forthcoming smartphones.

Just a few days ago we learned that Sony Australia would dish out a free Playstation 3 with the purchase of any Bravia 1080p LCD TV. It appears that Sony has now expanded the program to include the U.S.—albeit with a few "minor" changes. Unfortunately if you want to score this deal in the States you have to apply for a Sony Card in addition to purchasing a select Sony HDTV. So, if you were in the market for a SonyCard, a Sony HDTV and a PS3 you are golden. Better hurry though, the promotion ends on Dec. 31st.

As Intel chipset X48 is soon to be released in the Q1, 2008, DDR3 1600 solution is becoming readily available for the new platform. Introduced as an upgrade version, Intel chipset X48 will offer the official support to DDR3 1600 and FSB1600 MHz. To accomplish this, Walton Chaintech has successfully developed APOGEE GT DDR3 1600 memory module which can be operated at 1.6V voltage.
While other brands of DDR3 1600 memory modules require at least 1.8V to 1.95V operating voltage, APOGEE GT DDR3 1600 memory module achieves 1600MHz speed at just 1.6V voltage. With lower memory voltage and better performance, this product takes full advantage of the capabilities of the upcoming motherboard on base of Intel X48 chipset.
APOGEE GT DDR3 1600 memory modules will be marketed in deluxe package of 2GB dual channel kit (1GBx2) with Cool It Smart heatsink system. Each module is 100% tested for quality assurance and compatibility, ensuring customers to enjoy an extreme user experience either for gaming or other multimedia applications with high computing needs.

Fudzilla reports that Patriot was one of the first to materialize a 32GB memory stick. Even if it looks a bit thicker than most of the smaller sticks, it still fits your pocket perfectly.
This is not all, the rubber case is water and shock resistant and it will write files at an average speed of 9.33MB/s.
At the same time it can read up to 30MB/s which makes it incredibly fast and this combination will make it as one of the best solution available.
It will cost $265 which is a lot but for the price you get the lifetime warranty. Just think about the 32GB memory in a keychain and it will make this price more reasonable and Corsair gives you only a year warranty on its 32GB drive.

Nvidia originally planned to roll out the new MCP72 chipset in late November or early December but will now postpone shipping to January, along with the planned launch of its MCP78, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.
The sources detailed that Nvidia will introduce the new nForce 700a chipset family for AMD platforms, which includes MCP72XE, MCP72P and MCP78H in January, in attempts to compete with AMD's rival RD790 chipset.
Around the same time as the launch of the MCP72 family, Nvidia will also introduce the new MCP78S which includes a GeForce 8 series-based IGP, the sources added.
Following these launches, Nvidia is expected to introduce two new MCP78 chipsets, the MCP78D and MCP78U (GeForce 9200), in February. The MCP78D will not support hybrid SLI technology and will target the entry-level market with a price tag of about US$55. The chipset is similar to the MCP78S but adds an IGP. The MCP78U is an IGP enabled version of the MCP78H and carries an expected price tag of US$78, the sources detailed.
Nvidia declined the opportunity to respond to this report saying it cannot comment on unannounced products.
Dual core Celeron has arrived. It will cost around €50, it is based on Allandale dual core stepping M0 and it will work with SSE2 and 3 and supports Intel 64 and XD bit.
The E1200 works at 2x1.6GHz, has 800MHz FSB and 512KB shared cache memory. This is still 65nm CPU with 65W TDP, but we are sure it will overclock well as it doesn’t look much different from its successful E2140 brother.
The biggest challenge for this CPU is the dual core E2140 that works at the same speed and has the same core with 1MB cache is available today for €47.24.
You can pre order one here and it should show arrive in the first days of January.
According to NVIDIA, G92 core 8800GS just aims to the OEM market. But it is said that the AICs have their own plans. GeForce 8800GS 384MB will be $149-179 and it will replace GeForce 8600GTS. GeForce 8800GS built in 6 groups and 96 Streaming Processors in total, each group has 8 Texture Filtering Unit and 8 Texture Addressing Unit, the stepping reduced to 12 from 16. It matched 192bit memory controller and 384MB memory, so its HDR and FSAA will not as good as GeForce 8800GT.
Below is the 3DMark05, 06 test. The platform was not so good and the GPU-Z seems cannot display its correct clocks for now. Just for reference.

AMD has recently outlined the phase-out schedule for several of its Athlon 64 X2 CPUs, while the Athlon brand name will be re-purposed for upcoming dual-core CPUs based on the K10 core, according to sources at motherboard makers.
AMD will stop taking orders for Athlon 64 X2 6400+ black edition and 89W version Athlon 64 X2 6000+ processors in the first quarter of 2008. Last orders for 125W Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and Athlon 64 X2 5600+ processors will be at the end of the first quarter, the sources detailed.
AMD will also stop taking orders for Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and 4000+ processors by the end of this year and will launch a 65W Athlon 64 X2 4600+ clocked at 2.3GHz and with 1MB L2 cache in second quarter of 2008.
AMD will launch a new series of dual-core products based on its next-generation architecture, Athlon 6000, in the later half of second quarter next year. First to launch will be the Athlon 6250 and 6050, the sources revealed. Although the core frequencies of the two CPUs have not been set yet, they will adopt 1MB L2 cache and 2MB shared L3 cache, the sources added.
In one of the most aggressive moves in the HD war yet, Sony Australia has announced it will give away free PlayStation 3 consoles with every one of its 1080p televisions.
From 21 December until 21 January 2008 customers who buy one of the BRAVIA XBR, X or W series LCDs will receive a 40GB PS3 (worth $699).
With the 40-inch W series starting at AU$2,999 this would be a relatively inexpensive way to get into HD and the (admittedly still small) world of Blu-ray movies.
"Our Full HD BRAVIA range shows the phenomenal detail possible with high definition, and what better way to experience this than through the Blu-ray-enabled PS3," senior product manager for Visual at Sony Australia Graham Keogh said in a press release.
"Sony is as much about content as we are about hardware. Now, consumers will get the best of both worlds with this full high-definition combination," he said.

Tomshardware took a look at Phenom compatibility and tried to test it on ten AM2 motherboards which were supposed to support it.
The results were disappointing. AMD's new quad core only worked with two Asus boards, while the remaining Biostar, Foxconn, Epox, MSI and Gigabyte boards weren't in a mood to cooperate.
Tomshardware concludes that as an upgrade option the Phenom is not yet mature, as the vast majority of motherboard manufacturers haven't done much to make it run on "old" AM2 motherboards. Although upgrading your Athlon 64 X2 system with a 165 euro quad core CPU seems like a tempting prospect it might be wise to wait for the new B3 stepping and motherboard updates.
If you have been gaming on a PC for quite some time, you've probably realized by now that the single most important component of your computer for games performance is the graphics card. It is said in the computer games industry that audio accounts for roughly 10% of the gaming experience, and the visual part around 90%. Obviously, (good) gameplay makes it a good experience, but here we are talking about the instantaneous experience, what you see and hear.
So, which card is right for you? The question is quite similar to being asked, "which car is right for you?" People with no budget limits will always go for the best performance, regardless of price. However, most people want to get the most for their money, while still craving the performance that will deliver a satisfying gaming experience.

Do you want to share your interest and passion with everyone and also want to display it to the world ?
Ok then Wetpaint is the right place for you.Wetpaint is the place for such people who want to share their passion and interest with the world.The name is title peculiar but it correctly resembles the work done.As wet paint can always be edited and new thoughts and thinking can be brought out,so as the site.This site is always ready to edit.It is never a complete site and anyone can edit it with their thoughts and thinking so that they bring out their mind to the whole world.
The heart of the Wetpaint advantage is its ability to allow anyone — especially those without technical skill — to create and contribute to websites written for and by those who share a passion or interest. To do this, Wetpaint combines the best aspects of wiki, blogs, forums and social networks so anyone can click and type on the web.
Wetpaint is just like a open source software.In open source software everyone is given the power to modify and edit the software according to their own need so that the new end product is better than the earlier one.And so the same idea is involved in Wetpaint,here everyone have the power or you can say the right to edit and modify the contents according to their thinking resulting in a rich content output and also it becomes the well of knowledge and information.
This website is a source of information and knowledge from real life experiences from real people.The topics covered here is very broad.It is like a ocean full of knowledge and information relating to each and every topic one can dream of whether it is related to health, jobs, world events, or hobbies.
Now one question can rise in everybody's mind.And that is "Why should anyone prefer Wetpaint when specifically related blogs or user friendly forums or information packed wikis are available online ?".Yes one thing is true ,Blogs are very easy to develop but friends it is monologues.And everyone would agree with me that when two mind works together the outcome is better compared to one minded work.Apart from this forums are great for question and answers, but they're too hard to search. And wikis allow the reader to become the writer, editor and fact-checker, but they're just too darn hard to use for the average person. Wetpaint is different. With Wetpaint, anyone with a passion can create an entirely new website and invite others to help them build it. And it's easy — adding to a Wetpaint site is as simple as click and type. And when you put thousands of heads together to solve a problem, the results can be astonishing.
So at Wetpaint, the paint is still wet.

AMD has recently adjusted its triple-core CPU model numbers and launch dates, according to sources at motherboard makers.
AMD will launch two B2 stepping triple-core CPUs, Phenom 8600 and 8400 in March of next year, while in the second quarter, the company will launch three more models, Phenom 8700, 8650 and 8450.
The Phenom 8400 and 8600 will feature core frequencies of 2.1GHz and 2.3GHz, respectively, while the Phenom 8700 will clock at 2.4GHz. Phenom 8650 and 8450 will be based on B3 stepping cores, and will have frequencies of 2.3GHz and 2.1GHz, respectively. All five CPUs will have a 95W TDP.
Digitimes reports that Nvidia will launch the mid-range part for its GeForce 9600 GPU series, codenamed D9P or G94, in February 2008, according to sources with graphics cards makers.
The G94, the first mid-range GPU to feature a 256bit memory interface, is expected to pose a strong challenge to AMD's Radeon HD 3850 (RV670PRO) of the same class, the sources commented.
The sources revealed that while Nvidia's latest entry-level G98 (D8M) GPU, made at the 65nm process, has started shipping since early December, the G94 will make its debut on February 14. The G94 will also be made on a 65nm process at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the sources added.
The sources previously had said Nvidia would roll out the D9P in June 2008.
The G94, with its official price temporarily set at US$169, features 64 stream processors and supports PureVideo Gen 2, the sources said.
Expreview published the benchmark of the next era mainstream GPU by AMD i.e RV635 or HD 3650.
RV635, the next era mainstream GPU by AMD, have been spotted benched using 3DMark05. Here is the score, 11001.
But source said he was using AMD OverDrive overclock the VGA card to 750/1650. So the score can not show what’s the chip’s real power.
AppleInsider reported Friday that Apple has decided to use Intel's upcoming low-power Silverthorne chip in "not one but multiple products currently situated on its 2008 calendar year product roadmap." Silverthorne is Intel's latest push to capture the handheld/mobile phone market as part of a product concept called the Mobile Internet Device.
The report goes on to say that the most likely candidates for Silverthorne are a 3G iPhone and the Newton-like tablet computer that AppleInsider reported on earlier in the year. Based on what we know about Silverthorne, I think the subtablet rumor might make sense, but a Silverthorne iPhone is unlikely.
Intel plans to release more details about Silverthorne at the Intenational Solid State Circuits Conference in February, but we already know from the advance program, and from what Intel said about the chip last year, that we can expect Silverthorne to behave like a much smaller 2004-era Pentium M processor that consumes just a watt or two of power, compared with the 35 watts consumed by Intel's Core 2 Duo notebook processors of today.

Expreview claims NVIDIA is going to release the GeForce 9800 GX2 graphics card on February 19, 2008.
We can not learn much of the card, Only knows it will be a dual GPU card and communicate with built-in SLI. It also have a SLI connector so it will become the another card supporting Quad SLI like its predecessor 7950 GX2. The power module of the card is somehow different, it have one 6pin and one 8pin power connector.
AMD has recently notified its partners that the launch of higher-end quad-core Phenom processors, including the 9700 and 9900, will be postponed to the second quarter of 2008 from the original schedule of early 2008, according to sources at motherboard makers.
However, whether AMD's triple-core Toliman series CPUs will also see delay will be the key decision for the company, since Toliman offers a high price/performance ratio compared with Intel's quad-core CPUs. A delay for Toliman will hurt AMD the most, noted the sources.
The sources commented that the reason for the delay of 9700 and 9900 is because AMD has not yet been able to solve the translation lookaside buffer (TLB) erratum found in the chips. However, they added in saying that, in the long-term, AMD's decision is correct since pushing products that are not ready will only hurt the company more.
AMD declined to comment on this report. The company pointed out that it has not made any official announcement regarding a delay of the mentioned CPUs.

Motorola plans to launch its next-generation Linux-based "Ming" handsets in the second quarter of 2008, with the hand input intelligence handsets to be available in both high-end and entry-level versions, according to market sources. Previously, the Ming was released only in a high-end version.
While Motorola's R&D center in Beijing will continue to handle the development of the high-end version of the new Ming handsets, the US vendor will outsource the production of the new entry-level Ming handsets to the Taiwan-based Inventec Group, according to the sources, who also noted that the new Ming handsets will continue to support the 2.5G standard.
Motorola on December 17 launched its high-end 3.5G RAZR V9 in Taiwan, and the company plans to introduce in Taiwan a Symbian-based ROKR Z8, Windows Mobile-based Q9 and three entry-level models, including the W360 and W213, before the end of this year, according to Bill Chen, general manager of of mobile device business at Motorola Taiwan.
Handsets supporting the 3G standard will account for 50% of all handsets sold in Taiwan in 2008, Chen projected.

Intel plans to release own-brand P45 and G45 motherboards in the second quarter of 2008 with Foxconn (Hon Hai Precision Industry) to be the OEM partner, according to sources at component makers.
The codename of Intel's P45 motherboard is Skyberg (DP45SG). The product will support 45nm-based 1333MHz FSB Core 2 Extreme, quad-core and dual-core CPUs. The G45 motherboards, codenamed Icedale (DG45ID) and Fly Creek (DG45FC), will feature support for HDMI, DisplyPort and DVI. Both will support 1333MHz FSB quad-core and dual-core processors.
The major difference between Icedale and Fly Creek is that the former will support up to four DIMMs per memory channel while the latter only two.

Google's Orkut social networking site hasn't enjoyed the popularity that others, such as MySpace and Facebook, have in the U.S. That being said, the site is quite popular in other countries, chiefly India and Brazil. The networking site was targeted by what appears to be a non-malicious hacker yesterday and the effect was quite astounding.
The worm used Orkut's scrapbook system to spread its message to hundreds of thousands of users in just a few hours. First an Orkut user would receive an e-mail that a new scrapbook entry had been sent to them. Upon viewing the new entry, the user would see the message “2008 vem ai... que ele comece mto bem para vc.” The message is Portuguese and reads as “2008 is coming... I wish that it begins quite well for you” in English. Not exactly what you'd expect from a super virulent worm virus.
Get the complete story from here.
Update : Google Stops Orkut Worm Attack
The trojan redirects queries meant to be sent to Google servers to a rogue server, which displays ads from a third party instead of ads from Google, BitDefender said in a statement.
Google said on Wednesday: "We have cancelled customer accounts that display ads redirecting users to malicious sites or that advertise a product violating our software principles."
"We actively work to detect and remove sites that serve malware in both our ad network and in our search results. We have manual and automated processes in place to detect and enforce these policies."
The trojan, named after the mythic Trojan Horse because of its ability to enter computer systems undetected, attacks Google's AdSense service, which targets advertisements to match Web page content.
"This is a serious situation that damages users and Webmasters alike," said BitDefender virus analyst Attila Balazs.
"Users are affected because the advertisements and/or the linked sites may contain malicious code," he said. "Webmasters are affected because the trojan takes away viewers and thus a possible money source from their Websites."
BitDefender on its Web site (www.bitdefender.com) describes the trojan, which it identifies as Trojan.Qhost.WU, as spreading at a "low" level and causing "medium" damage.

Microsoft is to release the first Beta of the next version of Internet Explorer in the first half of 2008.
According to the Microsoft's IE Blog, an IE 8 prototype has passed a key Web standards test that ensures the browser won't "break" the Web. The Acid2 Browser test shows whether a browser renders a Web site in a certain way. If the browser renders the site correctly, it means the browser supports certain accepted Web standards.
A Microsoft spokesman said that this means that a Beta of the new browser can be safely released in the first half of next year.

Madboxpc has managed to get their hands on what appears to be the full specifications of and accompanying pictures of the upcoming Radeon HD 3450, 3470 and 3670.
Starting with the HD 3450, in this instance it's a low profile card with a D-sub and DisplayPort connector, it has a core clock of 525MHz with the memory at 400 or 800MHz effectively, it has 256B of DDR2 memory and a 64-bit memory interface. Sadly the reference design incorporates a tiny fan cooler, but hopefully this won't appear on any retail cards.
The HD 3470 is a full size card, although this doesn't seem like it's a requirement, as most of the PCB is empty. What struck us straight away is that this card features CrossFire bridge connectors, while cards we've seen elsewhere don't. The core is clocked at around 600MHz with the memory at 500MHz or 1GHz effectively. These cards will use GDDR3 memory and will be available in 256 and 512MB verities, although still limited by a 64-bit memory interface. The reference card has a DVI, D-sub and TV-out connector.
All cards will use PCIe 2.0 and according to the information here the 3450 should retail for around US$50 with the HD 3470 costing $10 more at $60. Finally the HD 3650 should start at around $100. These cards should be available sometime towards the end of February according to Madboxpc.

ATI will make quite a smart move that will boost sales of its entry level and mid range chips. Since it launched Radeon 38x0 series it slowed down the sales of 2600 and 2400 cards but it has a solution for it.
As people usually buy the cards with higher numbers RV635 will be renamed to Radeon 3x50 probably 3650 while the RV620 the 55 nm version of RV615 will be known as Radeon 3x50, most likely Radeon 3450.
These numbers look much better in the eyes of consumers and the new designation will probably help boost the sales of these chips. Smart but sneaky, what else can we say and it has been rumored that both RV620 and RV635 will get full DirectX 10.1 support and naturally they will consume less power and dissipate less heat due to the 55nm design.

Intel has recently adjusted its product strategy and will postpone three 45nm quad-core CPUs that were originally scheduled to launch in January next year, according to sources at motherboard makers.
Intel has already notified its partners that it will push back the launch of the three CPUs to February or March next year, depending on AMD's schedule for triple-core and the upcoming Phenom CPUs.
Launching the CPUs now will not benefit Intel much in its battle with AMD, while they could cause damage to Intel's 65nm quad-core CPUs, therefore the company has decided it is in no rush to release new products until AMD is able to present more of a threat.
The three CPUs that Intel plans to delay are the Core 2 Quad Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550, added the sources.
Intel commented that its launch of 45nm quad-core CPUs for desktops is on track for first quarter 2008, but declined to disclose a specific time-frame.
AMD unveiled the Phenom 9600 Black Edition CPU, this chip is clocked at 2.3GHz and features an unlocked multiplier. It's priced at $283 - the same price as the regular Phenom 9600.
AMD has released a new AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition quad-core processor with Clock Multiplier Control and tunable performance. The newest Black Edition processor enables customizable platform performance with AMD OverDrive software - the industry's most comprehensive Windows-based performance tuning utility. Priced the same as the recently launched AMD Phenom 9600 quad-core processor, the new Black Edition quad-core processor provides increased value and expanded customization options to end-users.

The entry level series will get a new chip. The new chip is codenamed D9M GT.
In Nvidia’s new codename game D9M means that the chip is a desktop part from the ninth generation and that this is an entry level part. Nvidia pulled off a game and the last time D8M ended up as the new 8400, entry level chip while D8P ended up as G92 – 8800GT and GTS.
This time around, we know that this is a new chip from the next generation and all we know how is that it supports Hybrid SLI. It is doomed to be cheap and that is what many on the graphics market like.
Nvidia’s new G100 chip might get the Geforce 9800 name. We know its way to early for the final decision but still we got it from good sources that are supposed to know these things so much in advance.
It will be rather interesting in Q1 and Q2 as both ATI and Nvidia are supposed to launch two new high end parts each. In Q1 probably in January Nvidia is about to launch D8E, dual G92 card and ATI will reply with already demonstrated R680 card and later probably in Q2 ATI will follow up with R700 to fight G100.
