Samsung W7900 "Show" – a projectorphone with OLED display and digital TV tuner

w9700-projector-phone.jpg

If you’re a fan of media consumption on the move, then you’ve likely got some sort of big screen PMP like an Archos 7. If you’re not invested in a particular device yet, though, then you could do worse than consider the Samsung W7900, aka the Show, which comes packed with a 3.2″ 240×400 OLED display, 5-megapixel camera, 3G, HSDPA, and most notably, a 10 lumen 480 x 320 projector, that’ll project upto a 50″ diagonal.

It also has a digital TV tuner so you’ll be able to watch telly on a (dark) bus, and all that is crammed into a body just 4.4″ x 2.2″ x 0.7″ thick. Impressive! Although it’ll initially only be available in Asia, here’s hoping that it’ll make it over this side of the world at some point over the next year.

LG showing off three new smartphones this week

There’s another one of those technology trade shows happening this week, so expect at least 50 consecutive updates about marginally different forms of mobile telephone. We will try our hardest to appear enthused, even when reporting on the budget models.

The three phones LG will be showing off are, from left to right, the LG CU920 (aka LG Vu), the VX9100 and the AX830 (aka LG Glimmer). And here they are, being demonstrated with enthusiasm – and a smile!

Sony announces A300 and A350 entry-level D-SLRs at PMA show

sony-a300.jpg
Sony’s got some special entry-level D-SLRs spinning over at the PMA show, with the A300 and A350 being satisfactory enough even for the most discerning of hobbyists.

The A300, shown, is almost identical to the A350, but has 14.2-megapixels as opposed to the latter’s 10.2. Both have a 2.7″ LCD screen, with live view being touted as a big feature. Both take photos at 3 frames…

6.) 2008’s touted iPhone killer –
Sigh. How I hate writing those words, but we all know it’s true. Whilst 3GSM is the big mobile-con of the year, handset manufacturers can hardly avoid the temptation of announcing the year’s ‘must-have’ fingerprint smeared devices – after all, the whole world’s technology media is in attendance, promising…

BBC says its wi-wi radiation Panorama programme was "misleading"

bbc-wi-fi-radiation.jpgIt’s OK. You don’t have to encase your wireless router in concrete and bury it or go back to having bright green Ethernet cables snaking through your house.

According to the BBC, its controversial and slightly ludicrous Panorama programme that claimed wi-fi generated three times as much radiation as mobile phone masts was misleading…

Opinion: Why online ticket retailers like Ticketmaster need to ban ticket touts

kat-TD-pic.jpgExcuse me for five minutes whilst I vent and rant about how angry I am with Ticketmaster and other online ticket-sellers. You may be aware that this morning, tickets for six Morrissey gigs went on sale at 9am. Or you will be, when tonight’s papers come out proclaiming the gigs as being the fastest-selling concerts since the guitar was invented.

Like all die-hard Morrissey fans, I logged on at 9am sharp to buy two tickets to just one of the gigs. I was actually using my HTC Touch on the bus, navigating through the pages with GPRS, which was actually behaving itself for once. Not only that, but I had someone else attempting to buy tickets for me as well, on a computer at home. By 9:04am however, we discovered that our attempts to see the quiff-tastic Mozfather were in vain, as all the tickets were sold out.

Hang on – a 3,300 capacity venue, sold out on all six nights, within minutes of the tickets going on sale? It reeked of ticket tout exploitation, and has angered me to the point where I’m urging Ticketmaster and the like to implement new measures to block touts from ruining actual fans’ chances of purchasing tickets. For the love of Morrissey and all good music!…
