While having wireless access to your broadband at home allows for a significant amount of freedom to roam about the place, this comes at a price. Running your internet connection through a wireless connection will slow you down by…
Have you ever wished you could tweet about that crazy passanger spinning the crystal ball on his index finger, update facebook, or check your email while on the tube? Well thanks to Europe's larges mobile Wi-Fi provider the Cloud…
The trend with notebooks and laptops right now is to make them smaller and smaller, so much so that they're nearly in danger of being dwarfed by DVD cases these days. But what if you need both the benefits of…
With e-readers set to go mainstream this year, expect to see loads of new e-reader options unveiled at this weeks Consumer Electronics Show. First out of the blocks are Cool-er showing off two brand new additions to their e-reader range….
We're not so sure about the idea of a detachable projector. It makes the handset look a bit like the Elephant Man of the smartphone world. Still, credit to LG for getting their first we suppose.
Do you work in a field where you need rugged equipment? Perhaps you’re a field engineer, a geologist, or maybe even a stuntman? Well, then the Getac PS535F is right up your alley. It’s a super-rugged PDA for use in tough environments.
It comes equipped with a GPS, 3.5″ VGA touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera, altimeter, electronic compass and Windows Mobile 6.1. There’s no modem, annoyingly, but it does have Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. There’s 2GB of onboard memory.
The device weighs 300g, has battery for 8 hours and in keeping with its rugged design, it’s resistant to drops, water, dust and extreme temperatures. I’ve got an email in to Getac asking how much it’ll cost and when it’ll be available, so I’ll update this post when I know more.
The rumours were true. Palm’s got a brand new device to go with its spangly new Nova operating system. All we knew previously was that it had a portrait touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but now there’s a bit more info to go with it.
That touchscreen measures 3.1″ diagonally, at 480×320 resolution. The slide-out keyboard doesn’t come straight out – it sorta curves. There’s oodles of connectivity – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EVDO. There’s a removable battery, microUSB connector, support for USB mass storage and – YAY! – a 3.5mm headphone jack.
It’s running the new Nova OS, but more about that in another post. It’ll be available in the “first half” of 2009. In the meantime, for more CES coverage, click here.

Here’s Susi’s take on the BlackBerry Flip. On the one hand, it has Wi-Fi and 3.5mm headphone jack. On the other, however, it has just a 2 megapixel camera. Oh, and it’s a flip phone. Which was cool sometime around 1998. For more details, check out Susi’s video above.
The other day at a trade show I got some hands-on experience with the Archos 7 media tablet. You can see the results in the video above, but what I really wonder is who the market for these devices is. They’re not easily controllable enough to have a good web experience. The streaming media is good, but if you’re in wi-fi range of your server, then why would you need to stream?
A Dutch coffee shop has come up with a clever ruse to try and drum up business from the freeloaders who nurse one drink all day in order to leach off of the free internet: they’ve started slagging off customers by using their WiFi network names as a passive aggressive outlet.
