Nokia N86 Smartphone

It looks like Nokia has pulled out all the stops in delivering a potentially paradigm shifting N86 cameraphone with a camera that they claim has SLR-like optics and is good enough to replace your current compact digital one. With 8GB of internal storage, and a lens system from Carl Zeiss, this device can capture still images at 8 megapixels, as well as 640x480 video 30 frames per second. The camera has a F2.4 aperture (so it's able to handle low light conditions) and includes a high intensity dual LED flash. Nokia is also using the internal GPS in the device to geo-tag all the photos.  Read More

Not necessarily for the environmentally conscious - the Coral-200-Solar

It's sometimes difficult in a white-bread-world to empathise with the have-nots, and we found some of the other media coverage of this story quite amusing. The Caribbean-based Digicel Group used the Barcelona Mobile World Congress to launch the world’s first low-cost solar-powered mobile phone yesterday and it's not designed for the environmentally conscious, but for the two billion people in the world who have limited or no access to electricity. The reason it doesn't have the high-end functionality we regard as essential is that its target audience is both functionally and technologically illiterate and the Coral-200-Solar will almost certainly be the first and possibly only phone they will ever own.  Read More

17-inch unibody MacBook Pro in pieces

Most sane people wouldn't even think about grabbing a Torx screwdriver, cracking open a brand new 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro, and completely disassembling it...that is, unless they work for iFixit, who do that kind of thing for a living.  Read More

Windows Mobile 6.5

When Apple's iPhone first hit the stores two years ago, it was a revelation in slick, simple user interface design that left competition reeling as it quickly achieved cult status. Such ease of use, however, comes at the expense of some functionality and configurability that many users expect from their smartphones, leaving the door wide open for platforms like Android, Symbian and Windows Mobile to go for the power-user market if they can just address their interface issues and build something slick and sexy that does what the iPhone can't. Gizmodo has shown the first hands-on look we've seen at Windows Mobile 6.5, which doesn't add a lot of new features, but makes WM much more finger-friendly and puts some surprisingly effective lipstick on the old girl.  Read More

HeadsetPresenter – the EUR10 remote controller for your PC

If you have a Bluetooth headset for your mobile phone, HeadPresenter software can now turn that headset into a remote presentation tool for Microsoft Powerpoint, Google Presentations or Open Office Impress. Indeed, the just released V 3.0 of the EUR 10 (USD 12.85) HeadsetPresenter software can turn hardware you probably already own into a miniature remote controller for any Windows software, which can be very handy with f'rinstance, Media Player or iTunes. But wait, there's more! The new version incorporates voice recognition meaning you can combine speech and button control, and there's a Mac version imminent.  Read More
