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
