Keeping time is a challenge for some people who are always perpetually late, and they often give out the flimsy excuse of following their own watch. Perhaps you could send them the Casio Wave Ceptor Radio Controlled Clock in order to end such excuses, since this timepiece received radio controlled timekeeping/date/calendar signals that are transmitted from Mainflingen, Germany and Rugby, England. Other than such immaculate timekeeping, it also boasts an auto tuning system, alarm and snooze functions, temperature display in °C or °F, a LED backlight, 12/24 hour format, and an auto-calendar. You can pick one up today for £19.95.
Looks like Dell's XPS M1710 gaming notebook will bid its adieu in a short while, as the M1730 steps forward as a replacement. This 17" system will feature the newer Intel Santa Rosa-based platform, featuring a 2.6GHz Core 2 Extreme processor, a free slot that accepts 1GB Turbo Memory cache for superior loading times, a 256MB mid-range video card, support for up to 4GB of RAM, a Blu-ray burner, and wireless connectivity (802.11n or Bluetooth - it remains to be seen). Sounds pretty power packed - I've always wondered why gaming notebooks were never marketed with a free gaming mouse of some sort. After all, nobody games with their touchpad, do they? I mean, you can include a high end gaming mouse from Logitech or Razer into the package as an added bonus.
Fancy having a mouse that does more than just move your cursor about on the screen? The Navilock BT-451 Bluetooth GPS mouse fits the bill perfectly, functioning as an external Bluetooth receiver when hooked up to your cellphone, PDA, UMPC, or notebook. GPS functionality will only be connected when required, helping you save on battery in the GPS mouse. The internal antenna must be pretty powerful since it offers great tracking performance, according to the manufacturers. The Navilock BT-451 Bluetooth GPS mouse comes with the u-blox ATR0635 high-sensitivity GPS chip inside, boasting SuperSense indoor GPS functionality for easy tracking indoors and outdoors. It is currently available in Europe for €79.00 with no word of a US release.
The folks at the FCC has just approved the Sagem my300H clamshell handset - although very little was released in the listing, we do know that the my300H will be compatible with GSM 850Mz and PCS 1900MHz networks. Feature-wise, the my300H isn't too hot, featuring the standard integrated camera, Java support, and WAP connectivity. There was no mention about Bluetooth in the manual whatsoever, which is definitely a bummer. Pricing details have not been released, although anyone would have to common sense to file this as an entry level handset - anything else more than that would be a travesty.
Word on the street has it that Nokia will launch the N81 at the end of this month, and what you see here is nothing more than a mock up. Then again, the final product shouldn't differ too much by far. The N81 will be classed as a music phone and will probably go head-to-head against Sony Ericsson's best Walkman handsets. Unconfirmed specifications include 8GB of internal memory, a 2.4" QVGA 16 million color display, and a 2 megapixel camera and a VGA camera for video calls. Music playback time is currently rated at 12.5 hours, while gaming time stands at 3 to 4 hours at best. TheN81 will measure 102mm x 50mm x 17.9mm and weigh 140 grams. Sigh - technology moves so fast that everything gets obsolete the moment it walks out of the store.
The LG Wave AX-380 from Alltel is definitely a looker, featuring a rolling design that mimics the curl of a wave. In addition, it gets deep colors that fade to black, ensuring that you will turn heads wherever you go. Features of the AX-380 include a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity, external music controls, a microSD memory card slot, MP3 playback capability, and an integrated GPS navigation module. It also comes with EV-DO connectivity for high speed mobile surfing wherever you go. The LG Wave is positioned as a mid-range handset and will replace the AX-355 on the Alltel network, although I don't see what's so mid-range about the inclusion of GPS. It can be yours for a relatively affordable $79.99 with a 2-year contract.
LG has just dropped some news on its upcoming iCool G700 handset. It looks like a candybar cellphone at first glance, but upon closer inspection you will notice that this is also a clamshell handset. The reason of this unique design being the iCool G700's ability to support two GSM SIM cards, where each SIM card will feature its own display screen. The candybar form factor supports GSM dual band network and comes with a rather weird keypad and the promise of international brand support (T-Mobile, etc). As for the clamshell mode, a 3G GSM SIM card is welcome, accompanied by a 2" internal display. Both lines can run simultaneously since they are operated separately. No idea on how much it costs nor when will it be available, but only busy bees need pick this handset up.
The Sonic Impact Video 55 Speaker & LCD is the best rated "big screen" iPod accessory add-on and once carried a very hefty price tag of $300. The 7-inch widescreen LCD display supports up to 480x234 resolution and the aluminum cone neodymium drivers with Class D digital amp pump out some awesome sound. I've been reading reviews on the...
