What better way to start posting again than to talk about the new iPod Nano. The new fourth generation nano bears a strong resemblance to its original avtaar - with a longer body and a larger display. Its also the slimmest and lightest iPod ever. Love the ‘Shake to shuffle’ feature and the landscape option on screen. The new iPod nano works with the new iTunes 8 Genius feature, allowing customers to automatically create playlists while on-the-go with their iPod nano. Users can preview the playlist Genius creates, refresh the list to choose different songs and save Genius playlists to enjoy again later.
Now available in 8Gig and 16 Gig flavors, there are plenty of delicious shades to pick from: black, silver, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
This blog has been left in deep hibernating mode for way too long! What can I say except that I had been really busy! Hardly an excuse! And writing on technology is something i really enjoy. So, let me say this today : I am back! And I will be posting regularly!
The Creative ZEN Vision W (30GB) premiered at COMEX 2006 for S$649. The 60GB model will be available in end September 2006 for S$749. Its definitely pricey for a device that cannot record video. Archos can breathe easy for now!
KRZR features a glass surface on top and brushed magnesium on the bottom, and is equipped with up to 1GB of removable memory and a 2-megapixel camera with an 8X zoom lens. The CDMA version of the phone, KRZR K1m, will feature high-speed EV-DO (evolution-data optimised) capability, and will include a dedicated keys on the outside of the phone for controlling an integrated music player.
Motorola's first GSM slider, the RIZR (right image) handset features a 2-megapixel camera, music capability, stereo Bluetooth, 20MB of internal memory, external touch-sensitive music player controls and a micro SD slot that can hold 2GB memory cards.
After weeks of speculation that Microsoft was planning an iPod-killer, the software giant finally confirmed that company will, later this year, launch Zune, an umbrella brand for "a family of hardware and software products". The first implementation of this will be the portable music player and digital music service that will take iPod-iTunes offering head-on. The hard-drive based wireless player will be shown off at the end of the month with a launch planned before christmas season.
I am back from a long hiatus from blogging. Its been crazy few months and spare time was at a huge premium. Well, now that things are a bit settled on all fronts - you will see more regular updates.
Sony Ericsson W950i
This one could be the phone of the year! Billed as the Walkman Phone, the Sony Ericsson W950 comes with 4GB of storage and a touch screen for simple navigation through music genres, playlists, individual songs or albums. We would have been happy with this but Sony Eric’s also squeezed in 3G, Bluetooth and – the knockout tech punch – the new version of the smartphone operating system, UIQ. Okie, we are crazy already!
Sony Ericsson K790 and K800
First we saw the "Walkman" range of Sony Ericsson phones, and now Sony Ericsson present the "Cybershot" range, using another Sony sub-brand to apply to this new range of 3.2 megapixel camera phones. The K790 and K800 are, respectively, tri-band GPRS and 3G versions of the same phone, capable of taking 3.2MP photos and offering all the Bluetooth 2.0, web browsing, music playback and FM radio talents of the formidable K750i. Another big feature is the ability to directly send your photos to a blog, thanks to Sony Eric’s partnership with Google. Once you’ve taken a snap, you can go to straight to a drop down menu, select ‘blog this’, add text and then post it directly to a Blogger page.
Sony Ericsson W300
The Walkman party is now rocking with the introduction of a seventh member: the budget W300. It’s the first clamshell Walkman mobile, and is on the lower end of the range with a basic VGA camera, Bluetooth and FM radio. The internal memory is yet to be confirmed, but it will ship with a 256MB Memory Stick Micro card.
Other Models: There's a new entry-level option - the K310, which offers a VGA camera and basic 65k colour screen. The Z530 is basically the W300 without Walkman software. If you need a better camera, check out the K510 which sports a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth, 262k display and a basic push e-mail service.
