BGR

A new promotional video about a North Korean tablet called Achim went viral on YouTube on Tuesday, racking up a whopping 231 views by 8:00 p.m. The hottest gadget in Pyongyang weighs merely 300 grams and is receiving rave reviews from trendy youths. Achim features the Android OS and “many applications.” The slick promotional video was first noted by Northkoreatech.org, which is a strangely addictive site in a sad, geeky sort of way.

Brian Cooley: No Windows Needed For Newest Computers

CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – As the PC industry sunsets into niche status over the next few years, we are getting a look at what’s next: Computers, yes, but ones that feel more like mobile devices.

LG Product Review!

UP

Product: LG L5 II

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

l5 II

Review: L5 II’s 5-megapixel camera produces excellent images. The autofocus function is extremely helpful and I am absolutely happy with the quality of the photos.

Definitely two-thumbs up for L5 II’s camera!

Paw Print

Just a short while ago we brought word that Dell had quietly announced the Dell XPS 11, an 11.6-inch Ultrabok with a hinge that folds all the way back into tablet mode, with the keyboard disabled after it passes 180 degrees. Yep, it is what it sounds like: a direct strike at Lenovo’s Yoga convertibles. As we said in an our earlier report, it won’t actually be available until the holiday season, but fortunately we just had a chance to get hands-on with a prototype unit here at Computex. So, we’re prepared to share a few first impressions, even though certain minor details like price and specs have yet to be finalized. Meet us below for the full preview.
