Here's another HTC Touch video that shows it's innovative UI:

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Review : It's got curves!

Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 Image LinkI think I'm one of the few quirky people to have almost every version of Microsoft's Natural keyboard range. The Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 has only deepened my love for these comfortable input gadgets.

These are what makes the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 so good:
1. the palm-rest can be raised which takes pressure of fingers
2. calculator button is well placed and a decent size too
3. Back / forward buttons are placed close to thumbs
4. It's black - white gets too dirty too quickly
5. USB wired powered - had my fair share of cordless keyboards and replacing/recharging batteries was a hassle. Even worse, when there aren't any charged batteries around!
6. Padded palm-rest for added comfort

Please take note that these types of keyboards are designed for touch-typists. If you're a finger-pecker you'll probably be more annoyed at the split hand-aligned sections.

Microsoft, you've still got a fan in me :)
So good I bought 2 : one for home and the other for the office.

O2 Flame : My Uncle's Review!

Check it out! My Uncle Rolly did a review on the O2 XDA Flame and he likes it! Seems like the big screen is a winner.

The best part of having a larger PDA screen is being able to browse the world wide web and get hold of those urgent and important information and emails, as needed, through 3G and wifi technology. Thanks to the 3.6 inch screen and dedicated high resolution graphics of the O2 flame. Of course the trade off is having a mobile phone covering half of your cheek when answering or making calls.

Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset : Absolutely Superb

Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset Image LinkPlantronics sent me one of their Plantronics Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headsets to try out last week and I love it. Having been without a bluetooth headset for a couple of weeks (lost it), the Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset was a welcome addition to my gadget belt. What's more is I got a wireless control for Windows Media Player on my pocketPC as well! Woot!

Easy Setup
After I charged the Pulsar 260 (initial charge should be around 3 hours) all I did was press both the power and play button and I could pick it up on my iMate JasJam PocketPC. Note: the instructions say to press them simultaneously, but this did not work with my unit. I actually pressed the power button slightly before the play and it initiated the pairing state fine.

Light As A Feather
At 25grams, you can wear the Pulsar 260 comfortably in your pocket or use it's clip on your belt. Weight matters when you're going to be using it for most of the day.

Rich Sound
I've never had a pair of the new types of plug-in earphones and I must say that this kind of design definitely provides for a richer sound. Although the Pulsar 260 won't compete against the high-end audiophilic types of Sennheiser and Shure, the sound was definitely above average. I enjoyed controlling media player (hooks up by default) wireslessly to play my favourite MP3s.

Plantronic Pulsar 260 Bluetooth Headset Features:

  • In-line telephony controls, pendant music controls
  • Clothing clip or lanyard wearing options
  • Up to 9 hours talk-time or up to 7 hours music listening time
  • Audio-out feature for Bluetooth connection to powered speakers or home Hi-Fi
  • Pod weighs just 25g
  • Bluetooth V2.0 software for improved co-existence with wireless networks
  • Up to 10 metres range
Fantastic work Plantronics! Another great gadget that fits well in your line-up.

Australian-made supercapacitors boost cellphone audio

BriteSound Image LinkAustralia-based CAP-XX just announced its supercapacitor-based BriteSound power architecture for music phones. As MP3-ready handsets grow in popularity, consumers want a rich, iPod-quality audio experience without the buzzing and distortion caused by wireless transmissions.

In a BriteSound phone, a CAP-XX supercapacitor provides a boost in peak power (up to 5 watts) which can:

1) Double and sometimes triple audio power for richer-sounding music, and
2) Eliminate buzzing and distortion caused by wireless transmissions while listening to music.

BriteSound is the second CAP-XX BritePower architecture for mobile phones, joining the BriteFlash solution which uses a supercapacitor to achieve high-brightness LED flash in camera phones.

The company is working with key mobile-phone manufacturers and expects the first designs that are power-boosted by its supercapacitors to hit the market in 2008, according to CAP-XX CEO Anthony Kongats.

Supercapacitors offload peak-power demands from the battery to improve talk time, battery life, flash power and audio quality.

To demonstrate BriteSound, CAP-XX used three tests to compare audio quality and power in typical mobile-phone audio circuits, both with and without a supercapacitor.

In these tests, the supercapacitor:

1) Tripled peak audio power from 1.65 watts (W) to 5.2W during a 100Hz bass-beat test: http://www.cap-xx.com/news/photogallery.htm#Bass

2) Eliminated distortion during simultaneous peak-power demands to transmit data and respond to a network poll: http://www.cap-xx.com/news/photogallery.htm#Network

3) More than doubled peak audio power from 2.24W to 4.96W while playing a piece of music using a set of SonyEricsson MPS60 external speakers and audio amplifier: http://www.cap-xx.com/news/photogallery.htm#Listen

Sandisk 64GB SSD : Laptop Storage of the Future

Sandisk 64GB SSD Solid State Drive ImageHere's Sandisk's press release on their 64GB Solid State Drive (SSD):

MILPITAS, CALIF., June 4, 2007 - Reaching for the "sweet spot" of memory storage for laptop computers, SanDisk Corporation (NASDAQ: SNDK) today expanded its line of solid state drive (SSD) products with the introduction of a 64-gigabyte (GB)1 SSD aimed at both enterprise users and early adopter consumers such as gamers. SanDisk 1.8-inch UATA 5000 and 2.5-inch SATA 5000 SSD products, which already are available in a 32GB capacity, are compatible as drop-in replacements for hard disk drives in most mainstream notebook computers.

The announcement was made at Computex Taipei 2007, where SanDisk is showcasing its comprehensive line of storage products for use in industrial and system-level embedded applications. SanDisk's new 64GB SSD will be on display in Hall 1 in Booths C1000, 1002 and C1004 along with other SanDisk OEM embedded flash storage products such as iNAND and mDOC H3.

"Laptop manufacturers have requested more memory capacity for systems that use the Microsoft Vista platform, which can require a number of preloaded accessories and security suites," said Doreet Oren, SanDisk director of SSD product marketing. "Also, there is interest in developing laptops for gaming, and the SSD is well-suited for the performance and memory requirements of those users. Thus, by offering greater capacities on our SSD products, we are making our products more appealing to a wider customer base."

Compared to conventional hard drives still found in most notebook computers, SanDisk SSDs offer key benefits to computer manufacturers and their customers:

* Durability and reliability. SanDisk SSDs deliver 2 million hours mean time between failures (MTBF)2, approximately six times more than notebook hard disks. With no moving parts, SanDisk SSDs are also much less likely to fail when a notebook computer is dropped or exposed to extreme temperatures.

* High performance. With no moving parts, the flash-based SSD starts working almost immediately to achieve far better access speeds than a conventional hard disk drive. For example, in notebook computers, data moves to and from an SSD more than 100 times faster than data moving to and from a hard disk. SanDisk SSDs offer a sustained read rate of 67 megabytes (MB) per second3 and a random read rate of 7,000 inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) for a 512-byte transfer4. As a result, notebooks equipped with a 2.5-inch SanDisk SSD can boot Microsoft Windows Vista Enterprise in as little as 30 seconds5 and access files at an average speed of 0.11 milliseconds6. A notebook using a hard disk requires an average 48 seconds to boot and an average 17 milliseconds to access files.

* Low power consumption. Compared to a typical hard disk drive, which consumes 1.9 watts7 during active operation, SanDisk SSDs consume 1.0 watt (0.5 watts for 1.8") while active and as little as 0.4 watts (0.2 watts for 1.8") while idle. This difference in power efficiency is particularly important in extending battery life for road warriors, enabling them to remain productive while in transit.

Gartner projects global consumption of SSDs in consumer and business notebooks to leap from about 4 million units in 2007 to 32 million units in 20108.

Plantronics .Audio 350 Multimedia Headset : Comfortable and great sound

Plantronics Audio 350 Gaming HeadsetI got a Plantronics Audio 350 Multimedia Headset to review from Plantronics last week and they are fantastic for gaming.

The Plantronics Audio 350 Gaming headset also delivers rich sound via its 40mm ear speakers - the bass was good and we gamers know it's all about the bass :) Inline volume controls, long cable (3 metres) and adjustable boom were also notable features.

Features of the Plantronics .Audio 350 Multimedia Gaming Headset

- 40 mm speakers convey rich, resonant stereo with maximum bass response
- Lightweight, flexible headband delivers plush all-day comfort

Sad thing is, I have to send it back :(

Well done Plantronics, keep up the great audio gadgets rolling!
