Summary:

The Dell Mini 10 netbook is a solid performer, and the new WiMAX option makes it even more so. The $60 will work with either Sprint or Clear WiMAX networks, as the modem is unlocked. No word on how WiMAX will impact battery life.

The Dell Mini 10 netbook is a very nice specimen, as witnessed by Kevin’s video below. It has just about everything a netbook user could want and then some, given word that WiMAX is now an option. The new option is unlocked, so it can be used with either Sprint or Clear in the U.S., giving up to 10 Mbps performance. The option is $60, and you’ll have to get a data plan which is extra. Maybe Kevin can get his hands on one of these babies with 4G?

  3. Google released Google Buzz , its another attempt at the Social Web. While, Google Buzz offers some neat integration with Gmail and some interesting features to drive adoption, what is even more interesting is the fact that you can also access Google Buzz using your Android mobile phone or an Apple iPhone. If you wish to learn about the features offered by Google Buzz , you might want to read my earlier post titled Google launches Google Buzz (Social Networking right from Gmail). 1.) Google Buzz is available for immediate access on your Android Mobile phone and your Apple iPhone ( sorry no BlackBerry’s, maybe BlackBerry owners like me, need to wait little more longer). 2.) Google Buzz on your mobile phone can be accessed by navigating your mobile web browser to buzz.google.com 3.) Google Buzz on your mobile phone is location aware. 4.) Google Buzz on your mobile phone has two different views: ‘Following’ view shows buzz from the people you follow, just like Google Buzz in your Gmail; ‘Nearby’ view shows public buzz that has been tagged with a location near you, and might be from people you don’t follow. 5.) Google has also added a Buzz layer to Google Maps for Mobile. Using the Buzz layer, you can easily watch out for the updates happening near your current location. 6.) There will also be a shortcut icon from the Google Homepage accessed through your mobile browser. 7.) Google Buzz also offers a voice feature using which you can simply speak up and post your buzz. Just say ‘post buzz,’ followed by whatever you’d like to post. For Android users, buzz.google.com and shortcuts are currently available only for phones with Android 2.0+ and we’re working to support other versions soon. Google Maps for mobile with Buzz (Maps 4.0) is available in Android Market for phones with Android 1.6+. via Google Mobile Blog You can also follow me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/vaibhav1981 Do stay tuned to Technofriends for more, one of the best ways of doing so is by subscribing to our feeds.
