Motorola Presents Android-based Razr Trio

MSI Introduces AMD APU-based Wind Top AE2051

Motorola Presents Android-based Razr Trio

Motorola Mobility added three models to its Razr lineup: Razr M, Razr HD, and the flagship Droid Razr Maxx HD.

Razr M is a 'compact' 4.3-inch smartphone made of Gorilla Glass, DuPont Kevlar fiber, and splash-guard coating. It's currently available in black and white.

Motorola Razr HD has a larger, 4.7-inch diplay and sports all the aforementioned technologies as well. The expected battery life is up to 6 hours for Web browsing and up to 16 hours for chat.

Droid Razr Maxx HD is a 4.7-inch flagship solution capable of up to 8 hours of Web browsing or, say, voice-guided GPS navigation. In addition, its design features something that's called 'water-repellent nanocoating.' This sounds almost like a challenge, and we're sure someone on YouTube will gladly accept it.

Speaking of availability, the RAZR M will be available in the US next week; the RAZR HD and Droid RAZR Maxx HD will follow before the holiday season. European launch dates, as well as any prices, are still unknown.

MSI Introduces AMD APU-based Wind Top AE2051

The MSI Wind Top AE2051 is a new space-saving 20-inch all-in-one PC with minimalistic design and touch-screen capabilities. It is equipped with the AMD Brazos 2.0 APU platform and the E2-1800 APU processor and Radeon HD 7340 graphics.

The MSI Wind Top AE2051 also has two USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports. MSI's Super Charger technology on one of the USB 3.0 ports makes it possible to charge USB devices at higher amperage while the computer is switched off. The HDMI output is also supported for displaying videos on larger displays. Moreover, the MSI AE2051 can also be used as external display with MSI's Instant Display Technology, through HDMI input or the proprietary Instant Display (allowing to use the MSI AE2051 as a monitor by pressing a button, without a PC).

The MSI Wind Top AE2051 supports Smart Media Link and Smart Sync cloud technologies. Smart Media Link allows to play videos, music, show photos and DLNA-supporting TV content on Wi-Fi and LAN. MSI Smart Sync allows to sync the data, including Outlook contacts and calendar, as well as photos, music, texts, and bookmarks with other computers or mobile phones. The MSI Wind Top AE2051 also includes the Quick Fix self-maintenance program to search for and fix the problems with the PC. It determines whether it can repair a particular issue and can provide self-test results to be used as reference by maintenance personnel. Besides, it can also update the necessary drivers online.


The MSI AE2051 will be available in Europe starting from the second week of September.
