SHINY VIDEO REVIEW: E-matic 4GB MP3 Player/Camera

In the video above, Zara takes a look at a camera/MP3 player hybrid device. It’s a bit of a strange combination, especially as there’s no mobile phone in there anywhere, but considering the specs of the little thing, it’s remarkably cheap for what you’re getting.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be available in the UK yet. Ah well – next Christmas perhaps.

Medion GoPal P5430 – feature-packed sat nav with a 5" screen


I love Medion. They always manage to put out technology with really good specs that doesn’t cost the earth. This Sat Nav is rather pricy compared to its competitors. It’s got some nifty features, though, and a whopping 5″ screen, to compensate.

Let’s start with the price. £175. That’s more than double the price of some of the other sat navs on the market, according to a quick Amazon search. So what are you getting for your cash?

RXS Bluetooth adaptors let you hook up your MP3 player


RXS has just launched a couple of Bluetooth adaptors for MP3 players that’ll let you stream your tunes over to a Bluetooth-capable car stereo, or pair of speakers or headphones. There’s an iPod version (pictured above) and a rather clunkier version that plugs into any 3.5mm headphone jack that’s available.

The iPod version weighs just 4.5g, sits nicely against against your iPod, and comes in black, white and silver. The 3.5mm version is much bigger, contains a rechargable battery, charged via USB, with 10 hours of listening time battery life, and comes in white and black.

If you own a Bluetooth enabled car stereo or set of headphones, then these are a brilliant way to get stuff hooked up. They’re not the best-looking accessories in the world, and a little pricy at £30, but if you need the connectivity, then they’ll provide it.

iRiver Wave – a mp3 player/phone hybrid device. It'll never catch on.


In the lovely Korean girl’s hand above is the iRiver Wave. It’s a *gasp* phone made by an MP3 player manufacturer. The world is imploding. Silliness aside, it’s beautiful, has specs to die for, and the wonderful embedded £2-a-month, all-you-can-stream Bugs Music Service embedded. However, I’m forced to add the phrase that makes any Western techie weep – “Only available in Korea”. Full specs over the jump.
