The Eee Box will be on sale in a month, so it’s a good thing Akihabara News happened across the above images showing the various colours of the budget PC, as until now we’ve only see grainy pictures that vaguely resemble a Wii glued to a basketball hoop.

Black, pink and white are the colours of choice ASUS is offering initially, with the same specs included in each colour-way. An Intel…

Following the successful launch of the Soul mobile phone, Samsung has announced a black version which will be exclusive to Orange. Surely they should’ve made an orange version exclusive to Orange? I guess orange isn’t quite as appealing as bog-standard black, though.

Stocking the same brilliant features as the original phone, the Soul Midnight’s casing is highly polished, as are the specs inside. HSDPA internet is the big one, and the 5.0-megapixel camera with LED flash…

This is one for the business user who has several phone accounts such as a mobile phone, home phone, VoIP and office line. Fusion Voicemail Plus aggregates all voicemail messages onto your handset, and has just become compatible with BlackBerry phones after working on the Windows Mobile operating system for so long now.

All voicemail messages are displayed in a handy colour-coded interface, which detail the caller, time, and which number they actually called. Sadly it’s only in beta at the moment so may be a little buggy for the BlackBerry handsets, however stick with it and it should improve. If you don’t have a BlackBerry…

Are you a frustrated Mac user who’s just dying to use a Logitech webcam with your slinky white machine? Yes, I thought Macs came with integrated webcams too, but it’s a nice gesture from Logitech, who up until now hasn’t actually supported Apple’s operating system.

The QuickCam Vision Pro has a 2.0-megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss lens, and is compatible with both…

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a BenQ product, but the company has come out in top form with the launch of the E72 smartphone. Running on Windows Mobile 6, it’s aimed at the low-end market.

One attractive feature about the E72 is that it’s the first mobile with an integrated IM client that will allow you to chat on MSN Messenger, Gtalk, Yahoo, ICQ, AOL and Jabber. Whilst it lacks 3G internet capabilities, it does have Wi-Fi for browsing in your local hot-spot, and the usual WM6 programs, such as Outlook email…

Katherine Hannaford Mobile phones, Video Reviews 1 Comment

Yesterday I had an opportunity to check out the Airremote application that’ll be launching in the App store in July, for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. It’ll cost $99, or £50, and will act like a universal remote control for your home, allowing you to control your Sky TV service, lighting, iTunes and Kaleidescape systems.

The potential to add more home systems and services to control is definitely there, too – the representative I spoke…

symbian-10-years.jpg

This year, Symbian turns 10 years old! That’s an excuse to crack open the bottle of vodka hidden in my desk draw, right? Right?!

To celebrate, they’ve hired a Las Vegas club and a bunch of models launched a website, which details their past, present and future. It’s one of the nicest flash sites I’ve seen…
