Sun's Advanced Product Line on Tap
A lot of water has run under the bridge since Sun and Fujitsu vowed to replace their 'co-developed' Advanced Product Line

A lot of water has run under the bridge in the three years since Sun and Fujitsu vowed to replace their respective Sparc/Solaris-based Sun Fire and PrimePower machines with a "co-developed" Advanced Product Line (APL) - using a 90nm 2.4GHz dual-threaded dual-core Fujitsu Sparc 64 VI - but it seems that something is going to come of that pact after all - albeit a year behind schedule.

The pair is planning a "major product" announcement in New York City April 17 that should put Sun squarely in mainframe land.

Ahead of the announcement Sun said it had faster dual-core/non-multithreaded UltraSparcs for the Sun Fire, devices that'll go 1.95GHz and 2.1GHz (someday but not quite yet - there are too few in existence) rather than the 1.8GHz that's been available since last August or the 1.5GHz available before that.

Lenovo To Chase Consumers
Lenovo, which like Dell has been focusing on commercial accounts while HP walked off with the PC market thanks to its retail sales, is going to set up a consumer unit to expand sales outside of China and regain lost market share. The new unit is reportedly still in the planning stages. There has been speculation that Lenovo would be divided in two, one to target the commercial sector, the other to target consumers.
