Lenovo Drops Two New Laptops and a Desktop
While we were grilling burgers and enjoying our Memorial Day, Lenovo was busy releasing new computers. The company let loose a new netbook, a new laptop and an economical all-in-one desktop destined for the casual Web surfer.

Palm Eos Available in 2009
Palm's Centro was the last big hit for a company that looked to be on the way out before it announced the Pre (and rocked the gadget world) in January. The Pre hasn't even hit the shelf yet (June 6th) and we are already hearing about its successor, the Eos. The second phone to use Palm's sleek WebOS mobile operating system is due for release sometime in the second half of 2009 -- destined initially for AT&T.

Mattel's Mindflex Coming October 1, $99
We got a chance to play with Mattel's Mindflex toy at CES earlier this year and were pretty captivated with trying to move a ping pong ball with our minds. We've now gotten word that the game will be shipping in October of this year. However, the price has crept up from the estimated $80 to a hard-to-rationalize $99.

Nokia's N810 Successor Later This year?
Nokia's next offering in its line of Internet tablets looks like it could be a winner, with
32-gigabytes (GB) of storage and a five-megapixel camera. The rumored next-gen device would also have 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, and sport a 3.5 inch screen. Word on the street says we could see a European release as early as July.
