And the other HTC Rio with a 4 inch screen, 800x480 resolution, 5MP camera, 512MB RAM.

This is all we have for now.

Solar Keyboard for iPad

There are many keyboards for the iPad but none like the Solar Keyboard Folio of Logitech which is the first solar keyboard for Apple's tablet.

The keyboard has no charger. It has the right size to type and it is made of plastic.
One interesting thing about Solar Keyboard Folio is the auto activation. Just place the iPad in the special position and the keyboard activates by itself and is ready for use. It's that simple.

There is not even a USB port to charge it, but Logitech promises that a fully charged Folio will last you 2 YEARS if you use it for 2 hours/day.

It takes 6 hours for Folio to charge when you are in a room and far less than 6 if you are out in the open.

It's price: 129$

No 3G and second camera for the Google Tablet

There are a few things we know about the Google tablet. It will come with a 7 inch screen, 1280 x 768, manufactured from ASUS with a Tegra 3 chip at 1.3 Ghz and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
We still don't know for sure if it will support 3G connection, but it is highly unlikely because of its very low price of 199$. This is also the reason we believe the Google tablet aka Asus Nexus 7 will only have one low resolution camera for video calls.
I guess we will just have to wait and find out. @ Google I/O 2012  27-28 June.
