HP has today introduced a new 64GB version of its TouchPad tablet via its French website. The image below has been added to the front page of the HP France website and introduces the arrival of the 64GB TouchPad, which is now available to purchase from the site for €599.
It also indicates that the new TouchPad with increased storage will also be available in “White lacquered finish”, i.e. a white case with a black glass front. Together with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 1.5 GHz dual-core APQ8060.

I love racing games on the game consoles I have. I really enjoy Forza, but I don’t like playing racing games nearly as much when I don’t have a decent racing wheel. The cheap racing wheels that I have seen on the market for the Xbox haven’t been good enough to woo me to purchase. Thrustmaster has a new racing wheel that is going official today that I do want.
The racing wheel is the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360. It is licensed by Ferrari and Microsoft and should make Forza and other racing games more fun. The wheel is a replica of the one used in the 458 Italia car featured in Forza 4. The wheel has an 11-inch diameter and has metal shifters for the transmission along with all the knobs you would find in the real car.
The wheel has a d-pad and eight action buttons. The racing wheel has a bungee cord centering system to return the wheel to the center. Thrustmaster will ship in October at a suggested price of $89.99. I wish game devs would support force feedback on racing games for the Xbox 360.

How does $1,399 for a pair of binoculars sound? When they also shoot 1080p HD video and 7.1 megapixel stills — perhaps slightly less ridiculous. Sony’s launching a new category of high-end binoculars with its new DEV-3 and DEV-5, which offer camera-like features and are priced at $1,399 and $1,999, respectively. Each pair includes two Exmor R CMOS sensors for native 3D video capture, dual f/1.8-3.4, 0.5-10x optical zoom lenses, and a pair of 1,227-dot viewfinders. While the pricier model adds a 10x digital zoom, GPS, and accessories like a carrying case and neck strap, those features don’t really justify a $600 jump in price — if you can live without GPS, it probably makes sense to skip the DEV-5. There’s also Memory Stick Pro Duo and SDXC support, stereo microphones with an audio input jack, and HDMI out. Coined as the world’s first binoculars with HD video recording, we wouldn’t expect there to be a terribly huge market for these pricey specs at launch, but if you’ve been looking for a way to record while bird watching, catching close-ups of the action at a game, or whatever it is you look at through your apartment window, then look for these to hit stores in November.
The hunt for the next Nexus phone (also known as the Nexus Prime) is on, and it looks like we could see it donning Ice Cream Sandwich in time for Halloween. According to a report in Korea’s Electronic Times, those oh so familiar “insiders” are fingering an October launch for the Samsung handset. It will apparently rock a 4.5-inch HD AMOLED display and a 1.5GHz dual core processor, which squares mighty nicely with previous reports. Of course, we’ll believe it when we see it — or at least an official announcement — but for now, we’re keeping the Ice Cream Sandwich dream alive.
Since that whole Revue thing didn’t go over so swimmingly, it looks like Logitech’s going back to its accessory roots, with a manic hope that tablet add-ons are the future. The company just announced a fold-out keyboard for the iPad 2 that’s pretty much what it sounds like: a keyboard split in two whose halves flip out and connect to form a full QWERTY. As you can see in those shots below, you can still use your magical, candy-colored Smart Cover when your iPad is docked. At $129.99, it’s hardly a cheap doo-dad and frankly, we would have hoped for higher quality. In our brief hands-on, the keys felt unstable and stiff — an ideal combination for anyone who thought their iPad needed more chintz. Pre-order it at the source link if you must, though you might do just as well gawking at our pics below.
