Sony Ericsson introduces the W710 Walkman phone, which includes a motion sensor plus new fitness applications that measure your running speed, distance and time, or simply count your steps when walking.

Sporty good looks, a high performance Walkman player and easy-to-use interface all combine to make the W710 the perfect sporting partner, whether you’re running for fun or keeping a check on how much you walk each day.

Available in Performance Graphite and Hatha Violet the phone also features a 2 Megapixel camera with digital zoom and comes supplied with 512MB Memory Stick Micro (M2) - enough to keep you going through the longest walk or fitness session, although this can be expanded to 1GB if you’re left wanting more.

Fitness applications included as standard help you take your Walkman phone into new territory. The jogging application can be accessed easily from both the sub display and main display to measure both speed and distance covered while out running. There’s also a daily step counter that resets automatically at midnight and your progress is displayed even when the phone is on standby.

Sony Ericsson’s successful Walkman phone range takes another step forward with the announcement of the UMTS enabled W850. This is Sony Ericsson’s first GSM/UMTS ‘slider’,

The W850 has been uniquely combined with a full horizontal mode camera experience and the latest Walkman player 2.0 for easy music download.

Available in Precious Black or Golden White, the phone has an attention grabbing ‘heartbeat illumination’ feature to light-up the control keys in rhythm with your music. Visually stunning and appealing to use, this phone isn’t just about good looks – it also offers blisteringly fast music downloads direct to the handset.

The phone is configured for operator over the air (OTA) music download services and accepts many popular music file formats including e-AAC+, which reduces download time and space needed for tracks. Memory isn’t an issue either with a 1GB memory stick PRO Duo supplied which is enough for around 1,000 songs in e-AAC+. This can be expanded to 4GB so that you can store a much larger music collection and have it with you all of the time.

The Walkman player 2.0 simplifies navigation through music genres, playlists, individual songs or music albums and there’s also a TrackID feature powered by Gracenote Mobile MusicID. This is a new service which means you can record a few seconds of a song, either via the microphone or the in built FM radio, and then with one click send that clip to the Gracenote worldwide music database which will identify the track and relay the information back to the phone.

The MacBook Has Arrived

The MacBook Has Arrived

The Macbook is recently launched and it comes in black. The specifications are not bad at all, and at similar configuration (1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, faster CPU), the MacBook actually costs less than a Sony Vaio SZ, the ultimate 13.3” reference on the PC side.

The Toshiba Tecra M6 is available with either Celeron or Core Solo processors, the M6 seems like a slimmed-down version of the 14.1-inch M5 we spotted earlier this year, as the $1,059 base configuration only gives you 256MB of RAM, no WiFi, a 40GB hard drive, and that pokey 1.6GHz Celeron M. It costs a little over $1,600 to put together a decent system, which includes a 1.83GHz T2400 Core Duo chip, 1GB of RAM, 100GB HDD, 802.11a/b/g, and Bluetooth, but only integrated graphics and no DVD burner.

AMD launches Turion 64 X2 to fight Core Duo

AMD launches Turion 64 X2 to fight Core Duo

AMD is jumping into the game with their new Turion 64 X2 chips. The chips range from 1.6GHz to 2.0GHz, and range in price from $184 to $354 in bulk purchases. Of course, it's just not nice these days to call a chip by its clock speed, so the models go by names like TL-50 (1.6GHz), TL-56 (1.8GHz) and TL-60 (2.0GHz).

Country Treehouse Concept

This modular treehouse concept from the UK design studio Sybarite incorporates recycled products, is partly self-sustainable and uses wind to generate electricity. Thanks to its prefab modular construction, it can feature from one to five bedrooms. You won’t be able to throw it together on a Sunday afternoon like dad did, but it can be assembled on site in two weeks.

Virtual Assistant from NEC

Virtual Assistant from NEC

Nec introduces a virtual assistant that -they think- will revolutionize how humans interact with electronic devices. The assistant looks like a virtual version of NEC's PaReRo friendly robot. Nec's goal is to use the assistant as the interface for all kinds of devices like PDA, Phone, GPS, you name it. The idea is simple: Nec thinks that it can simplify many tasks by letting the user interact with the assistant, rather than learning from scratch how to use a new device. Users will also be able to transport the assistant's memory from one device to the other to avoid re-teaching each new device.
