Seems slightly better than the classic Curve 9300, which is still in use by many of RIM's original target market. Then again, the Curve 9300 is a pretty old phone (by modern standards anyway - 2Years) and therefore those still on an old 9300 are clearly not RIMs /current/ market anyway - which signals an inherent problem with them.
For anyone coming from a Curve 9300 it sees a welcome upgrade - with twice the RAM and internal memory (a big problem on the 9300) ; an upgraded Camera with flash.
2011/2012 (ie the iPhone 4S , iPad 3 etc.) a quiet generation for Apple (and the industry). Perhaps all that can be done technologically and viably at this moment has been done? The best we are getting now are pointless quadcore devices.Nothing in this past generation has been particularly Game changing.
Oh well perhaps that locally based haptic feedback tech will make a splash soon.
Very inaccurate calculation but ...
8Mbps is about 1 MByte ps
Thus 16Mbps is 2MByte ps
and therefore 4Mbps is 500Kbyte ps
Resulting in (4+16)=(2+0.5)
= 20Mbps = 2.5MByte p/s
and therefore 500/2.5 = 200
Therefore 500Mb usage allowance would be used up in 200 Seconds
or alternatively EE won't offer such silly limits.
@PaulR79 The article title is wrong, misleading and a childish attempt to put the Playbook down.
The functionality is provided by the Blackberry Bridge app on the phone not the tablet.
A Note to El Reg and all Playbook naysayers:
I'm sure many people will back me up (those that have ACTUALLY USED it) that the Playbook is a wonderful device to use for what it can do (and following OS2.0, alot). The web browser is simply fantastic; the responsiveness of the OS- amazing and the styling - awesome.
Send me your downvotes; I'm ready.
"- if you're going to spend serious you'll have serious phones and wont need eq. This thing will end up plugged into Beats by Dre or Bose so will need all the help it can get."
"Of course I meant that Bose and Beats by Dre are the exact opposite of serious headphones. Clownphones, in fact"
Bit of a contradictory argument then?
May I be the first (or the 4th... depending on when this is moderated) to say, what a spectacular ripoff. much better waiting for prices to drop(however this does cause economic collapse), or better yet sell your old consoles on ebay(or another merchant or actual friends) and buy from a cheaper merchant(Amazon for example).
LOLing aside, there is a serious point here (from El Reg, really? I hear you ask!). The passing of this act is pointless, and will just result in Large websites being copied and put back on the (intricate system of tubes that connects the internets) within a few hours.
This act will really harm the individual (or small) content providers who unknowingly infringe copyright (and thus do not have the resources to get another website online)
Having checked the specifications, it has EXACTLY the same Chipset/Processor as the DHD's MSM8255; same RAM amount -768MB and the same Camera - probably the same sensor (but I can't find the part no. anywhere).
Sensation XL, nope its a Desire HD XL with a factory overclocked processor; Front facing Camera... oh and a beastier screen. All available (with the exception of the latter two) with a nice looking optimised custom Sense 3.5 ROM (or better yet vanilla CyanogenMod 7 if that's your thing.)
HTC should have done better and loaded this thing with a bit more power.
Around other forums and news sources etc. people aren't having much of a problem with this scrapping of mobile flash. But what they don't seem to to realise is; that the vast majority of video sharing sites on the internet use flash, and will for the foreseeable future. For Google to let Adobe stop developing Flash for Android after ICS, it will be Commercial Suicide for the Android Platform. One of the main reasons for Adobe making this decision is that currently Flash doesn't run optimally on current spec devices,but by the time ICS 4.0 is the old version, most devices won't have a problem running Flash optimally.

This is bog standard Cheapo generic chinese television internal hardware. The remote is even the same as these elcheapo products. You are paying for the idea ( and of course the case)
Don't believe me? check out this £109.99 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/199284 , I have this TV right now and it has those cutesy bubbles you speak of and the elcheapo remote along with all the features of this BathTV you speak of. (not targeting this rant at reghardware). PLUS INTERNAL SPEAKERS!
