Nokia's N97 gets sized up

Nokia's N97 gets sized up
Although the folks at Mobile Review insist that this is not a formal review, they have been kind enough to post their extensive thoughts on the phone -- as well as more UI and comparison shots than you can shake a stick at. Overall, they seem to really dig the handset's design: sure, it's big (a shade larger than the iPhone), but it's well-proportioned, and doesn't seem bulky. And even though it's a slider, it doesn't have that "wobbly" feeling that sliders tend to have. Other features of note include a secondary camera that can serve as webcam and the 3.5-inch, 640 x 360-pixel screen, boasting 16 million colors, which they call "a true marvel." But that's not all! Hit the read link for thoughts on the new, improved music player, all those widgets that you crave, and comparison shots with the HTC Touch Pro, Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, and the Apple iPhone. Video after the break.

TomTom DUB1 navigator

TomTom DUB1
The DUB1 is an up and coming navigator which is designed to operate in a snap-in portal located in your nearest dashboard or in the palm of your nearest hand. It's likely that said portal will be a double-DIN aftermarket accessory, but we suppose TomTom could nail down contracts with automakers to provide it from the factory. There's little left to do but wait and see, but given just how nuts Garmin went at CES 2008, don't be shocked to see this as one of the many coming from its main rival in just under a month.

New Hello Kitty Gadget: the C1 Netbook

New Hello Kitty Gadget: the C1 Netbook
The new Hello Kitty for you gals and girls. It’s the C1 Netbook which has the whole Hello Kitty mark on it. Like any other netbook it weighs under 3 pounts and it packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive and a 10.1 inch display. Two USB ports, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11b/g WiFi and the usual Windows XP Home complete the specs’ list.

But unlike any other netbook, the C1 has Hello Kitty written all over it. That’s why it would cost you no less than $890 to get it.

T-Mobile G1 Comes with a 3.5mm Headphone Adapter

T-Mobile G1
Everyone noticed how the first Android phone was promised to have access to lots of Amazon tracks and despite all that it failed to show a 3.5mm adapter. It looks like that whole problem has been finally solved. New G1s will get a 3.5mm headphone adapted for the ExtUSB port the phone comes with. That means you can get your headphones plugged into that free-of-charge adapter for some better quality music. What do you say? Will that make you buy a G1 today or are you sticking with the Storm?

Trossen Robotics

Trossen Robotics
High torque metal gear servos, LiPo batteries for longer run times, a fluid 3D visual software programming interface for easy custom motions, and a remote control unit are included. Everything you need to have you own walking robot is included in this ready-to-walk kit! With over a hundred pre-installed motions and sounds you can get this robot throwing some dance floor shapes or some killer fighting moves straight from the box.
Trossen Robotics will be making available its new MechRC Humanoid Robot to the masses in the US, and parents can breath easy since this Christmas present won’t break the $1,000 barrier in terms of pricing. That doesn’t mean it is affordable for everyone though, since it is still pretty pricey at $599.99 - definitely not an impulse purchase considering how everyone else is tightening their wallets to weather the current global economic meltdown.

Intel's convertible Classmate PC

The third-generation Classmate PC looked completely unprepared for the real world comin' out of IFA, Intel has clearly hit the books during the fall term. Now, the convertible Classmate has graduated to the FCC, where we're shown a user's manual, label ID and a smattering of pathetic images.

Sharp's AQUOS Photo Player Prints

Sharp's AQUOS Photo Player Prints
Sharp has decided to liberally splash its AQUOS labeling on an all new photo player, which pulls double duty as a photo printer and a photo, um, display-er. So far as we can tell, users can load up images via a variety of memory card slots, Bluetooth, Infrared and even the local network (HN-PP150 only), and from there, they can either print for showing to grandma or output the content through HDMI. For those who connect it to an AQUOS LCD TV, they can also utilize the music playback functionality that's baked in.

Automower solar-powered robotic lawn mower

Automower solar-powered robotic
Good thing we have advances in technology such as the solar-powered Automower. It looks more like a miniature war vehicle or something out of a futuristic video game, but instead of blowing stuff up, it was specially designed to keep your pre-wired green lawn short and trim. Heck, you even have the choice to create ‘islands’ by laying the wire around plants and flower beds. Don’t worry about riling Greenpeace activists since this is 100% solar-powered, which equals to zero emissions. It also comes with safety features that prevents it from harming pets or kids, although I’m not too sure whether it will avoid snakes or not (if you’re into those kind of pets). The Automower will retail for around $3,100 and is able to trim a quarter of an acre with 10 hours of charging.

Memorex MVBD-2510 Blu-ray player

Memorex MVBD-2510 Blu-ray player
Memorex's Profile 1.1 MVBD-2510 was only $269 from the get-go, but busting through the unofficial $150 price barrier is a pretty big deal for Blu-ray. Granted, we're totally expecting a few more to join the fold come Black Friday, but who's not all about buying from the comfort of one's home versus braving frigid temperatures only to catch eight airborne diseases and shave 2.85 years from your life due to statistically significant levels of stress on a day off? Bottom line: $139.99 for a BD deck is pretty darn cheap (even for Woot's standards), and even if there's no BD-Live support baked in, it'll still handle the 1080p basics.

Flip Mino jumps on the High Definition

Flip Mino HD
Known as the Flip Mino HD, this is touted to be the smallest high definition camcorder in the world. It is extremely easy on your pockets, tipping the scales at a mere 3oz., making it a snap for you to carry this just about anywhere you travel, capturing those precious moments in high resolution video for future viewing. The price tag also won’t eat into your kids’ college savings, retailing for $229.99 a pop. The Flip Mino HD has the ability to record up to an hour’s worth of HD video, and with the bundled Flip Video’s new FlipShare software, you are able to turn just about any computer into a platform for drag-and-drop video organizing, editing and sharing on YouTube, MySpace, AOL Video or via email.

Features of the Flip Mino HD include :-

* Resolution: HD 720p
* 4GB internal memory
* 1.5″ anti-glare LCD display
* Internal lithium ion battery
* One-touch recording with 2x digital zoom
* Touch-sensitive buttons for recording, playback, fast forward, rewind, pause and delete

Sounds like a decent Christmas present to bring home this holiday season, eh? I would have preferred to see a memory card slot thrown in for expansion options – 4GB of internal memory just isn’t enough especially when you plan to record an event that is longer than a single hour.

The LED Micro Task Light

The LED Micro Task Light
The light has four LED lights which would give you a decent amount of lighting. The light also rotates 360 degrees to make it easier to work. To keep it powered you’ll need three AAA batteries. Apparently the light doesn’t produce any heat either so the batteries will last longer. The light can last up to 100,000 hours. You can pick it up on Solutions for $12. So it would be fairly affordable, plus you can save yourself a battery run and add an extra $2 and they’ll throw in two batteries.

Asus R50A finally arrives

They weren't kidding when they said it would be above $500, but for the price you'll be running Windows Vista on a handheld with a 1.33GHz Intel Atom processor, a gig of RAM, a 32GB SSD hard drive, a 5.6'' screen at 1024 x 600, three USB ports, a microSD slot, a wireless keyboard, and an external DVD reader / writer. Connectivity options include 802.11 b / g WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G. These specs aren't all that different from what you'd find in a netbook (save for the SSD), except you're paying more than twice as much and you get to look like you're playing games on a GP2X while you're using it on the train. Maybe it's supposed to be a status symbol?

Iriver cuts prices on three PMPs

The Fans of iriver's PMPs should be happy to hear that it's cutting prices on three of them for the holiday shopping season. The E100 and tiny Lplayer's prices will be $69.99 for 4GB models and $99.99 for the 8GB ones -- a drop of $40. The priciest of the three, the SPINN, will see its tag drop to $189.99 for the 4GB and $229.99 for the 8GB (they normally fetch $249.99 and $279.99 respectively), though that still seems fairly expensive given its storage capacity. The price drops are in effect starting November 1st

Asus intros WiMAX-equipped M50Vm-A1WM 15.4 incher
Asus' M50Vm-A1 laptop -- the M50Vm-A1WM -- just showed up on Newegg and Amazon. Soulcrushingly long (mostly) alphanumeric string aside, it's a decent 15.4'' machine for its $1,399 price point, with desktop replacement specs: Intel Core 2 Duo P8400, 4GB of RAM, a GeForce 9600M with a satisfying 1GB of dedicated graphics memory, and even a numpad. What's new here is onboard WiMAX, which puts Asus on the post-XOHM launch bandwagon with Toshiba, Acer and other laptop manufacturers.

LG KC780 to be launched

LG KC780
One of the smart technologies found in the LG KC780 is Face Detection, and this will automatically find and focus on people’s faces so that the photographer is able to capture clearer portrait shots. In addition, LG’s Smile Detection technology is smart enough to recognize the angle of people’s mouths and adjust focus for faces. Good to see such features appear on a cell phone, where they were once the domain of dedicated digital cameras. While the LG KC780 won’t have the full functionality of a digital camera, it has enough to make this function as a backup just in case your primary shooter dies due to lack of battery or some other unfortunate inconvenience. You will be able to choose from automatic modes, a Beauty Mode that removes spots and imperfections on people’s faces, high ISO 1600, SmartLight setting for optimal brightness settings and an integrated Image Stabilizer.

Century LCD-4300U

Century LCD-4300U
Think of this Century LCD-4300U as a way to improve your performance when working on a laptop, or to keep your attention focused on the main screen while the unnecessary stuff goes for the secondary screen, be it a MSN conversation or your RSS reader.

The portable display measures 4.3-inches and is powered by USB. It has a WVGA resolution of 800×480 with a LED Backlight. Interestingly enough, you can connect 7 secondary screens to one computer.

Andrea PureAudio BT-200 Bluetooth Headset

PureAudio BT-200 Bluetooth Headset
The BT-200 is suppose to be used while driving, and as the name suggests it can cancel the ambient noise coming from the outside that you don’t want to hear when having a phone conversation. One of the good details is the integrated wind suppression that is located on the microphone tip. The headset can be used in different scenarios as well, such as VoIP phones, gaming systems such as PS3, and more.

Zepto debuts 14-inch Nox A14

Zepto debuts 14-inch Nox A14
Zepto managed to carve out a tiny niche for itself with its understated Nexus A15 gaming laptop, and it looks like it's now giving it some company with its new Nox A14 model. From the looks of it, this one is mostly identical to its predecessor, with the notable exception of a 14.1-inch 1440 x 900 screen and, consequently, a slightly smaller and lighter form factor. Otherwise, you can expect to get a Core 2 Duo P9500 processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 512MB, up to 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive (or 128GB SSD), a built-in 2-megapixel webcam, and a DVD burner or optional Blu-ray drive.

HTC Touch Diamond

HTC Touch Diamond
The specifications certainly do it justice – great spread of available memory, a complete set of connectivity features that leave little for want, decent processing power and a spectacular VGA screen. Considering what you’re getting, it’s fairly impressive to be packing all of it in its tiny and light frame, which barely tips the scale at 110 g. It’s sharp angular looks isn’t as uncomfortable in the pants as it looks, as the back of the unit is angled off at the edges, although you’d find little to appreciate with regards to the diamond-like facet of the rear cover in which the phone gets its name from. It should also be said that the Diamond’s smooth surface is a fingerprint magnet, and no surface on the unit is safe from it, but that is something most people can live by, and users can take solace in the fact that build quality is sturdy.

HP offers up Special Edition Pavilion dv4t and dv5t

Special Edition Pavilion dv4t
Starting with the former, we've got a flashily designed 14.1-incher with a WXGA panel, 4GB of DDR2 RAM, a handful of Core 2 Duo CPU choices, NVIDIA's 512MB GeForce 9200M GS, up to 400GB of hard drive space, WiFi, optional WWAN and an integrated HDTV hybrid tuner. The equally fashionable Pavilion dv5t SE sports a 15.4-inch LCD, a GMA4500MHD integrated graphics set, optional Blu-ray writer and most everything already mentioned on its smaller sibling.

Okoro intros updated low-profile OMS-SX100

The design not change but get new improve.That latter bit seems to come largely as a result of the low-wattage AMD Athlon X2 4850e processor at the heart of the system, which gets backed up by 2GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive (upgradeable to 1TB), 8-channel LPCM audio via HDMI, NVIDIA 8200 graphics, and an optional Blu-ray drive, to name a few features.

Motor Tunes makes audio alive on your wheels

Motor Tunes
Scooterists and bikers have been crying out for a portable stereo system. Most motor scooters are too small for a built-in audio system. And many bikers don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars for one either. And even the do-it- yourself market is expensive, time-consuming and usually requires you to take apart your vehicle. Now you can musically enhance your motoring experience whether it’s your daily commute, your cruise in the country or your jaunt around town. And the best part is that you can instantly detach it and take your tunes with you once you’ve arrived at your destination.

Revised PocketSurfer2 gets unlimited lifetime surfing in UK

The PocketSurfer2R. It shares the prior device's basic layout and 640 x 240 screen, but contains a GPS receiver inside and a small touchpad to the upper-right of the keypad. More notable, though, is the new "Immortality Plan," which won't guarantee that you'll still be rocking out when your grandkids retire, but, for a one-time fee of £60 (a little over $100), offers unlimited surfing over the lifetime of the device. Given we're stuck paying $25/month here, we'd call that a bargain. This new model won't be coming stateside, at least not yet, but the older one has received a $100 price drop to $199.

Aurora Color Changing Clock

Aurora Color Changing Clock
It appears that Aurora has figured out a solution to this time-telling dilemma by creating a clock that changes color every hour. It has twelve colors that represent the hours of the day, and it might take a little while before you learn what color is what hour.
The Aurora Color Changing Clock has a translucent rubber housing, which allows the lights to go on and off with a tap. The alarm clock will flash when it is time to get up.

Sony announces PRS-700 Reader with touchscreen

 PRS-700 Reader
Sony's plan to launch an updated Reader today wasn't exactly a secret, but there are still some surprises to the new PRS-700 -- particularly the new six-inch touchscreen E-Ink display. Page turning is now accomplished by a swipe motion with faster refreshes, and there's a stylus and on-screen keyboard for searching and note-taking -- plus an LED reading light (not a backlight) for reading in the dark. Apart from that, it's basically the same deal as the PRS-505 -- internal storage for about 350 ebooks with SD and MS-Duo expansion and a 7500 page-turn battery life round out the package, as well as an updated online store.

Humping USB Dog

Humping USB Dog
Harley and Duke are naughty doggies. They won't eat out of their food bowls; they track mud all over the place; they are constantly burying our pens; and they have a peculiar naughtiness whenever they spy a free USB port. They...well...they sort of, kind of, um... "go to town," if you will. And they won't stop until you um...separate them from the source of their affections.

The B-Series : Sony Walkman Players

The B-Series
ony may not ever beat out the iPod, but they are still in the portable music game. In fact, this isn’t the first time we have covered Sony’s new Walkman series, but last time, we only had a little information and no picture of the B-Series.

As you can see, the B-Series is a capsule shaped wonder that looks a lot like your typical USB flash drive. That is because the end of the B-Series is designed to pop off to reveal a USB port for some Plug-and-Play action.

The MP3 player is designed with an FM tuner, and has a quick charge function. Unfortunately, I have heard from my sources that the battery life is not long. I have also heard that the display screen is incredible tiny, as you might be able to see.

The Sonoro Cubo Elements alarm clock is oozing with style and slick design, it’s already lost quite a few points in my alarm clock scorebook because of its minuscule LED clock.

Sony Ericsson's GreenHeart

Sony Ericsson's GreenHeart
Sony Ericsson's GreenHeart concept phone -- and if this is what saving the environment looks like, we approve. It looks sorta like a retooled W880, but you won't find any brushed aluminum here; instead, the GreenHeart's made with some crazy plastics that go easy on mother nature. It's bundled with a new charger that shuts off when the phone doesn't need any juice to save energy, but one think it's not bundled with is a manual -- the guide is entirely electronic to save paper.

New Optimus Aux Shots

New Optimus Aux Shots
This site provides free Flash conversion online. It can convert any YouTube movie or any other Flash file online to AVI, MOV, MP4 or MP3. Supposedly, using a special open-source Flash technology, it can convert Flash to MPEG4 faster and losslessy than a typical transcoder. You simply submit the URL of the Flash file and it goes to work.

First up, the service uses a subscription model. Just pay a low monthly fee (Engadget reports it's $2 to $4 per channel) and you can download and watch any shows from any available channel. A handful of channels will also make content available on a pay per download basis.

Sounds like a great service, but if at all possible, please don't support sites like this until the WGA strike is over. No money paid (and dollars earned in advertising, if there is any) right now for this service will go to the people who wrote the shows - it will go to the studios and networks. Once the strike is over and the writers have negotiated "new media" into their contracts, have at it, but please support the writers until that happens.

Amazing 150″ Panasonic Life Wall TV

Life Wall by Panasonic. An extremely thin 150″ TV that does amazing things. It has face recognition so that it recognizes the face(s) that watch it and adjusts the display or program to that person’s preferences automatically.
How about having a TV that will move with you as you walk around the living room to keep the display right in front of you? The display would be large or small depending on how far away from the screen you were. It could display a screen saver instead of a black screen when turned off.

Powerful life-size images could dance with you, and videophone linkups would look like the caller was in the same room.

Video games would take on a whole new dimension with endless possibilities. School could be at home while the teacher could be at school. IP cameras would give the feeling of being there. None of this is science fiction. This is all part of Panasonic’s Life Wall TV.

liquid metal-based LM10 CPU cooler

LM10 CPU cooler
Danamics got a lot of attention a while back when stories started to go around that it had a new kind of CPU cooling in development. It was said that Danamics had been able to harvest the power of liquid metal. Not much information could be found on the website, until now. Danamics has updated it with what it calls the worlds first commercially available liquid metal based CPU cooler - Danamics LM10. Danamics mentions two key characteristics when describing the pump: the unique electromagnetic pump with its patent pending multi-string design and the liquid metal with its superior thermo physical characteristics.
Danamics LM10 is the world's best performing air-cooler. By utilizing the unique properties of liquid metal, the cooler has the lowest thermal resistance of any air-cooler in the market. The cooling capabilities exceeds most watercoolers in a single device

ASUS' Eee 904 Gets Official

Eee PC
ASUS is developing a new Eee PC that would offer the comfort of its larger 10-inch models at the cost of the 8.9-inch models, according to reports from supply channels. The Eee PC 904 and 905 would have the same 8.9-inch display as the 901 notebook but with the enclosure of the 1001, giving it a larger keyboard without necessarily changing the price. Battery life and storage may also go up with the larger case but are reportedly uncertain.

Both should still be based on the Intel Atom and will be close enough in feature set and cost to replace the Celeron-based 900 and Atom-based 901 outright, though whether this happens is unclear. ASUS is allegedly mulling keeping one or both of the earlier models in place at a lower cost to better match the Acer Aspire One, which sells for roughly $100 less than the Eee PC 901.

Presumably, the 904 and 905 will use the guts of the Eee PC 901 inside the bigger Eee PC 1000 chassis, although there's no official or even unofficial word on this as yet. At least the Eee PC 904 and 905 will have the better keyboard of the Eee PC 1000-series which is a blessing, as the keyboard on the smaller versions are just too small.

Keep in mind, the Eee Box will come in several configurations. According to PC World, hard drive capacities will range from 80GB to 250GB, and some models will run Linux while others will run Windows XP.

The Eee PC 904 and 905 will use Atom processors. Asus is apparently evaluating whether or not to add improved battery and storage capacity to the Eee PC 904 and 905.

These trendsetter models come in various flashy colours that are resilient to scrapes and scratches. For more screenspace the new Eee PCs�?� series integrate large 8.9″ to 10″ displays and comes with a built-in 1.3M Pixel webcam and a large keyboard. Available on Windows and GNU Linux platforms, ASUS 1000H, 1000 and 901 Eee PC models further the concept of 3 ´E´s to give its discriminating users easy and simple choice.

The new 904 and 905 is expected to keep the same form factor as the Eee PC 1000, but include a smaller 8.9 inch display, which means it will have a slightly larger bezel around the display, similar to the Eee PC 701. The 904 and 905 is also expected to feature a slightly bigger keyboard, but there was not any mention on what is expected to happen (if anything) in terms of storage capacity or battery size. As of now, there is not any expected time frame to see these new models begin shipping, however it is estimated that they will be priced in the same range as the Eee PC 900 or 901. With so many similar model numbers and little change between them spec wise it is becoming harder and harder to keep track of.

Motorola's touchscreen Blaze

Motorola's touchscreen Blaze
Motorola Blaze Posted by: in Latest News The touchscreen Motorola Blaze, slated for release on the Verizon network, boasts a ?2 megapixel camera, EV-DO Rev. A support, GPS, Bluetooth, MobileTV, and the regular standard feature set.? Pricing has not yet been announced. Click here for first picture in gallery. Best part of the phone so far? While limited, you can use the device with the flip closed. Actually kind of cool. In a really not cool sort of way.

From the looks of the branding, this touchy-feely handset is coming to Verizon, complete with a special Verizon-only operating system. BGR says the touch screen is decent, and the mobile browser is "OK," but nothing to write home about. Email and texting functionality are also lambasted by BGR, as is the crush-the-screen-to-make-it-work haptic touchscreen feedback. Specs include a 2 megapixel camera, EV-DO Rev. A support, GPS, and Bluetooth. They didn't sound too keen on the Blaze, but they didn't write it off completely.
