We invite you to attend an overview of the IPCA610 REV E changes via a webtorial. Over lunch time one of our master instructors will guide you through the major changes instituted in REV E. A nominal fee of $75.00 (compared to the IPC rate of $495.00) gives you a copy of the slides as well as a copy of the IPCA610 differences document. Take advantage of this session to ask your questions. You can buy the REV E document here.
Training materials for REV E for both the IPCA610 and the JSTD-001 Rev E is due out near the end of the summer.
Wishing you a great summer!
As handheld device manufacturers squeeze more in to less space, the POP package has become more and more used in a variety of devices. In many cases there is a combination of both memory and processor power in a single stack.

Dell Streak-Tablet Light or Super Smart Phone?
Little was known about Dell's 5-inch MID, that was until a video of the device popped up last month. The device has been released in the UK and should be released by AT&T the US within 2010. It runs on the Google Android 2.0 OS.
The device has a 5-megapixel camera and has an 800 x 480 capacitive touchscreen. Other features include Bluetooth, 3g and Wi-Fi. Dell has outsourced the production of the small MID to Chinese manufacturer, Qisda.
The Dell MID comes with a 1,300mAh battery, so it should offer more than enough power for your everyday tasks. The Dell Streak does not have much hardware showing on the outside however; there are three touch-sensitive buttons on the right-hand side of the device. On the bottom edge of the device is a multifunction dock connector, as well as the camera on the rear of the device. Dell thought of adding a front facing camera as well, this will be ideal for video conference calls.
Will it give the IPAD a run for this space?
