  • By popular demand, Sony releases Jelly Bean alpha build for Xperia T

    By popular demand, Sony releases Jelly Bean alpha build for Xperia T

    Because the first time proved to be such a charm for Android developers, Sony’s once again offering Xperia owners an official alpha ROM. And this time, it’s of the Jelly Bean variety. But before you rush to the source and flash your cares away, there are a few caveats we need to cover. For starters, the price of entry to this Android 4.1 test run is an unlocked Xperia T. Not the TX, not the V, not the S, so don’t even try it. You’ll also have to sign away your legal right (via the company’s unlock utility) to whine and demand compensation should your handset brick in the process. Once those hurdles have been cleared, you’re almost home free to flash — so long as you don’t mind an unfinished UI, non-functioning radios for voice, WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC, in addition to a complete lack of Gapps. Oh, and did we mention your unlocked T won’t be privy to the official Jelly Bean update once it hits? Yeah, there’s that too. Basically, you shouldn’t look to this for a daily driver. In fact, it’s probably best to leave this one to the big boys.

  • LaCie Blade Runner drive now available, offers stand-out storage for $300

    LaCie Blade Runner drive now available, offers standout storage for $299

    LaCie teased us at CES with the prospect of a rare high-concept hard drive design in the Blade Runner, but it left out the rather important matter of when we could buy the Philippe Starck-designed storage. As we’ve discovered, we didn’t have to wait long — the Blade Runner has just become available. Plunk down $300 and you’ll get a 4TB, USB 3.0-based external drive that melds a blob-like disk shell with aluminum blades that both cool the main body and create a (minor) conversation piece. Just be sure to hurry if you’re looking for a dash of art with your extra drive space, as it’s doubtful that the Blade Runner’s 9,999-unit production run will last.

    Get yo’ popcorn ready. When your company is announcing the latest and greatest mobile OS, why not seize the opportunity to scrape up a few million bucks to make sure the entire world gets a proper introduction? Research in Motion will be forking out for a Super Bowl spot (which averages $3.8 million this year), as part of an effort to get the word out about BlackBerry 10. Let’s just hope it’s not shown the exact moment 40 million people head to the fridge. A little presser can be found past the break.
