Vizio's been awfully busy since we last heard from them, updating three product lines with a total of 31 new HDTVs. The XVT series are more high-end, the M series is more about style, and the E is eco-friendly.

The Palm Pre will cost $US199 with contract or about $US549 (from Sprint) without a contract. So why is BestBuy.com listing the phone itself for EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIFTY FREAKING US DOLLARS?? (Admittedly, that price is lower than the even crazier $US1000 rumour we saw earlier.) Still, we'll assume it's a misprinted placeholder price and carry on with our day, no matter how true or untrue that may be. Because we'll also assume that no one will pay an extra $US300 to buy the Pre at Best Buy rather than just breaking their contract with Sprint.

ColorWare will take your Kindle 2 from B&W to color* for the modest price of $US199, or they'll sell you a pre-colourised model for $599. (*Note: Colourisation process does not include the E-Ink screen.)

Navigon will no longer be selling PNDs (personal navigation devices) in the US. In a statement released today, the company explains, "Due to the difficult economic environment and the aggressive pricing we have decided to withdraw from the PND business in North America for the time being. We are however not closing down our Chicago office which will continue to serve our automotive and mobile phone businesses in North America." With the rise of the smartphone, I wonder how long it will be until we see some of the bigger GPS manufacturers follow suit.
