Ah, at long last. Panasonic's Toughbook line has long since offered argonauts a critical level of protection on their mobile machines, but the word \"mobile\" was subject to interpretation. Pretty much across the board, the Toughbook line has always been fat and chunky, but we've been willing to see

Yeah, 2010 may be the (second) year of the tablet, but we're guessing that Sir Destiny didn't exactly see this coming down the pike. Panasonic just introduced its newest Toughbook in the H1 Field, and we're in no position to argue the \"world's most rugged handheld tablet computer\" claim. Classified

True, it's just an ordinary netbook from an ordinary company, but the Gateway LT2106u is now official and brings with it a contractual obligation to Verizon Wireless in return for a discount off the claimed $500 retail price. Just don't get too excited about your new found frugality since you'll st

Following the introduction of the HP Mini 1151NR earlier this year, Verizon's push into the brave new world of subsidized netbooks continues this coming Sunday with the Gateway LT2016u, essentially a warmed-over LT2000 with enough legalese attached to it to make sure you're a loyal Big Red customer

AMD had (and still has, arguably) a lot riding on HP's Pavilion dv2, with it being the first notable machine to arrive with the outfit's Neo platform. We've already heard what the so-called professionals think, but we're interested to hear from the folks who really matter -- the consumers. Is HP's

Hey, you! VAIO P modder! Hold up on that HSDPA hack just a minute -- er, on second thought, you should probably proceed, 'cause Sony isn't about to take back your current machine when this Gobi-equipped model ships. Quite curiously, Sony has announced here in Barcelona that its VAIO Z, VAIO TT and

We knew good and well HP's Mini 1000 netbook had a thing for integrated 3G, but we never knew it played both sides of the proverbial field. After noticing not two, but three WWAN options on the CTO pages at HP, jkOnTheRun wrote in to figure out what was going on. In sum, those uncomfortable with ch

They might not like it, but Sony looks ripe to enter the netbook market in the US. Unveiled today is the backside of this tiny \"notebook PC\" as described by the FCC under the model numbers PCG-1P1L and PCG-1P2L (PCG synonymous with Sony's VAIO laptop brand). We see tests for Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n

AT&T has freely supported Panasonic's WWAN-enabled Toughbook 19 / 30 on its mobile broadband network for nearly a year now, and for those worried that the two may break things off when Gobi entered the picture can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Qualcomm's hybrid-3G technology (which goes from

HP's already jumped on board, and it looks like Qualcomm's now also managed to convince Dell of the merits of its Gobi dual-3G chipset, which will soon be finding its way into a variety of Latitude, Precision, and other unspecified consumer laptops. For those not up to speed, that welcome addition w
