  • Archos 7c tablet with Eclair, kickstand now shipping for $220
    Well, isn’t today our lucky day? Just a week after debuting on video, the Archos 7c Home Tablet is shipping in the US for $220 — more than a month ahead of its expected June arrival. As a refresher, this 7-inch tablet offers a capacitive (800 x 480) display, Android 2.1 (Eclair), and a Cortex A8 processor-RK2918 chipset combo that promises smooth 720p video playback. Other specs include 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, two built-in speakers, and that kickstand you see in the photo above. Of course, you’ll also have to forgo niceties like wireless-N, cameras, and access to Android Market. Are those trade-offs worth the dirt-cheap price? That’s a decision you’re going to have to make for yourself.

  • Carnegie Mellon’s GigaPan Time Machine brings time-lapse to panoramas

    We’ve already seen GigaPan technology used for plenty of impressive panoramas, but some researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have now gone one step further with their so-called “GigaPan Time Machine” project. Thanks to the magic of HTML5 and some time-consuming (but automated) photography, you can now “simultaneously explore space and time” right in your web browser — that is, zoom in and around a large-format panorama that also happens to be a time-lapse video. If you don’t feel like exploring yourself, you can also jump straight to some highlights — like the like the construction of the Hulk statue at the CMU Carnival pictured above. Ht up the source link below to try it out — just make sure you’re in either Chrome and Safari, as they’re the only compatible browsers at this time.

  • Exclusive: White iPhone 4 lands at Vodafone UK

    Well, would you have a gander at that? That, friends, is Apple’s long-awaited, hardly-forgotten white iPhone 4, and so far as we can tell, this is actually the real deal. We’ve seen retailers making space for the elusive handset over the past few months, and earlier today, we heard that Vodafone UK’s inventory systems were showing the white iPhone 4 as shipping in. Now, we’ve secured a few images of a 16GB model from a separate source that has seemingly made its way into the hands of one lucky customer (read: bloke) over in Britain.

    As the story goes, the salesperson rang it up as a black iPhone to help facilitate the transaction, and shortly after the sale went down, Voda sent out a notice to halt sale of these gems “until next week.” Just so you know, the MC604B/A model number shown here is particularly interesting when compared to our own in-house UK iPhone 4; the latter, which is also a 16GB edition, sports a model number of MC603B/A. We suspect we aren’t going too far out on a limb by suggesting that the “3” and “4” are there to represent hue variations, and if you’d like to stretch the theory one step further, MC605B/A represents the 32GB black iPhone 4. In other words, don’t be shocked when the white 32 gigger rolls in as MC606B/A. So, is this the first legitimate sign that a white iPhone 4 is but days away from going on sale? We’re hardly experts in meteorology, but it sure felt like spring in Londontown today.

    P.S. – 9 to 5 Mac suggests that it’ll be landing on April 27th, at least in the Netherlands.
