The Gigabyte M528 is a ultra-portable Mobile Internet Device that is scheduled for release later this year. The mobile device is powered by an 800 MHz Intel Atom processor, 512 Megabytes of on board Ram, a 4 Gigabyte Solid State Disk and integrated graphics.

The screen dimensions are 4.8" with a maximum resolution of 800x480 pixels and a touch panel.

It runs on Linux and comes preinstalled with a browser that is based on the Firefox 3 engine, Open Office, Skype and the Instant Messenger Pidgin.

The suggest retail price for Europe will be around 700 Euros and $750 in the United States but it is likely that Gigabyte will try to cut some deals to reduce the price tag.

    Apple was forced to add USB-C to a phone and the maccultists start talking about “revolution” and “paradigm shift” (as if USB phones had never come out before). It’s so ridiculous it’s reminiscent of comedians doing the “stepped on a water hose” stunt – that was at least somehow funny a hundred years ago.
    Reading this on a site that used to be a technical resource is especially ridiculous.
    How pathetic

    “An iPhone 15 with a USB-C port will mean more than you think”

    That Apple can finally stop hindering progress if spanked hard enough ?

    I’m thrilled to see Instagram taking steps to enhance the user experience with features like Live Activities. This update is a game-changer, especially for those who frequently upload content on the platform.

    The ability to track upload progress in the background is a simple yet incredibly useful addition. It not only keeps users informed about the status of their uploads but also allows for a more seamless experience on the platform. No more constantly checking if your post has successfully uploaded or worrying about interrupted uploads due to a weak signal.

    As an active Instagram user, this feature is a relief. It showcases Instagram’s commitment to improving user satisfaction and addressing common pain points. It’s all about making the platform more user-friendly, and this feature certainly accomplishes that.

    I can’t wait to try out Live Activities and enjoy a stress-free posting experience. Kudos to Instagram for continually innovating and making our social media lives easier!

    Keep up the great work, Instagram, and thanks to ghacks for keeping us in the loop with the latest tech updates!
