Oregon and Southwest Washington are enjoying more than just the launch of Comcast’s updated A28 guide today, the company also announced it has begun offering Anyroom DVR (not to be confused with Anyroom On Demand) setups in the area. It’s a pretty standard MoCA implementation, one central HD DVR that allows customers to watch and control recorded programming from other hard drive-less set-top boxes in the same house. Comcast say Anyroom DVR is available in 20 markets including the Bay area, Western Mass, Augusta, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Little Rock and others, while forum posts on DSLReports indicate promos have been spotted in Chicago and Pennsylvania with a price tag of $19.95 for the main DVR, and the usual fees for the other boxes (maximum of 3).
We couldn’t get an official confirmation on the amount of storage available, but the reported 500GB is an all too welcome improvement over the 160GB / 250GB drives still sitting in most standard DVRs Comcast issues or the FiOS one we tested a while back, outpaces the 250GB / 320GB options in AT&T’s U-verse setups and would put it on par with DirecTV’s HR24 (can be upgraded) and the new Cox Plus Package. Sure, it’s a little late to record every World Cup match in HD (or 3D) but we’re sure you’ll find something to watch.

Amazon has already boasted that the display in its updated Kindle DX
boasts a 50% improved contrast, but E Ink
has now thankfully come out and provided a few more details on the new display technology used. Dubbed Pearl, the new display builds upon E Ink’s previous Vizplex displays, and not only promises enhanced readability and text that “pops from the page,” but the lowest power consumption of any display used in e-readers today (something also claimed about E Ink’s previous displays). Of course, the display technology isn’t limited to just the Kindle DX — E Ink currently has five different Pearl displays ranging from 5-inch to 9.7-inch, all of which boast 16 levels of gray, and resolutions ranging from 800 x 600 to 1,200 x 825 (and 200 to 150 DPI).

Still haven’t received your HTC Droid Incredible
due to that AMOLED shortage
? Then it looks like you’ll soon be hearing from Verizion, if you haven’t already. Android Central
reports that the carrier has begun sending letters to all customers still waiting for their phones that apologizes for delay, and informs them that they’ll soon also be receiving a $25 Verizon gift card as a little thank you for their patience. As for when you’ll actually receive the phone itself, however, Verizion is only saying that if your order date was June 28th or prior, you “may experience an additional delay of up to 7 business days.”
