With a bunch of announcements happening soon, I thought I’d republish this with some updating.
This is in no order at all. Stream of memory dredging list.
HP/Palm Pre 3 — dead as of August 18th
HP TouchPad Go (7″) — dead to begin with
3) Kindle with Touch — I doubt this will happen this year
4) Amazon color tablet (7″) — tomorrow, September 28th
5) NookColor II and III
Sony Reader — August 31
TabCo tablet (debuts August 15th) — should have never been made
8) iPhone 5 — October 4th announcement
9) iPod Touch update — October 4th announcement
iPad HD (thin rumor) — dead according to latest rumors
I’m not even including things already announced that haven’t yet appeared on stores shelves, like the Samsung Galaxy WiFi 5.0 (which might never, given Apple’s legal actions against Samsung). Update: Now scheduled to arrive October 16th.
I’m also not including second-tier shit no one is interested in: Archos, Coby, Cruz, Pandigital. Those are just made for landfills, not people.
The Nokia N9 isn’t listed because Nokia is delusional and thinks Windows Phone has a future. Windows Phone will follow in the glorious successful footsteps of Microsft’s Kin phone (that is bitter sarcasm, if you don’t know) — and I won’t even list one of those. Waste of pixels.
Update: The N9 is now released. But not coming to the USA.
