Apple is expected to unveil its new tablet device next week, and, just like the iPhone, gaming is expected to play a role in its appeal. To that end, it appears that Apple has reached out to mega publisher EA to develop games specifically designed to showcase the new device’s capabilities, reports the Wall Street Journal (via GamesIndustry.biz).
Video footage of the Dell Streak - a 5-inch, touchscreen, Android-based mobile internet device, or MID - has hit the net.
Tinhte has gotten hold of one of the mythical machines and it looks like a pretty nifty internet tablet-type offering, although being much larger than a phone and much smaller than a netbook means it won't appeal to everyone.
With a 800 x 480 resolution screen, it's thought to run Android 2.0 and offer Bluetooth, 3G, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, a microSD card slot and Wi-Fi.
Hit play now to see a good 3 minutes of Streak action and we'll keep you posted with more news on this new device as we have it. More on www.tinhte.com
The potentially revolutionary streaming technology OnLive has demonstrated video games through a PC, TV, iPhone and other output devices -- but not a car. At CES 2010, GameStreamer will make its debut, a new service designed to allow those in a vehicle (we're assuming the driver is exempt!) to download and play some of today's biggest games.
GameStreamer relies on the vehicle being equipped to a Long Term Evolution network (LTE), a wireless broadband network. On the GameStreamer website, the company alludes to users being able to play games like Assassin's Creed II,Batman: Arkham Asylum, and others.
