Phlash, you’re on camera

Phlash, you’re on camera

Some cameraphones lack the flash in built in it. Owning a Nokia 3230 before I had this Nokia N70, the lack of a flash really annoys you when you want to impress your friends with your nice new camera phone. The nightvision mode were useless. So Foxden made Phlash, a gadget that emits a beam of light that's 12 times brighter than built-in phone flashes. It can be stucked behind the phone and you have to press the flash when you are taking your shot. Phlash retails for about $29.99

Carbon nanotube TVs soon

Carbon nanotube TVs soon

Applied Nanotech's carbon nanotube first generation TV produced really bad low-res videos, until recently Applied has signed an agreement with Taiwanese manufacturer Da Ling to help them with manufacturing trials. Carbon nanotubes sets use tiny flexible tubes to display images and Applied claims that their technology could produce HD-quality like sets and could sell much more lesser than comparable LCD or plasma models. It would be expected for a while before we can get a real cheap display, but lets's just wait for now.

Creative MuVo S200

Creative MuVo S200

Creative has launched yet another boring MP3 player. The MuVo uses the same orange PLED 96x36 pixel display, runs on AAA batteries and the same old 5-way control stick. The only notable difference is that it has a built-in lyric readout on the display. Still better to consider alternative MP3 players.

Benq Joybee N370 OLED MP3 Player

Benq Joybee N370 OLED MP3 Player
This is the latest Digital Audio Player from BenQ, but the specifications for the set is still unknown. As illustrated in the picture, there is a microphone hole, probably good enough to do self recordings. There could possibly be a built-in FM tuner. You should be able to play back videos on its clear OLED display and have USB connectivity to upload pictures into it or download pictures from digital cameras and have it as a temporary storage space. Assuming the size, it would probably not store a lot of capacity.

Memorex FlashDisc

Memorex FlashDisc
Shaped like a frisbee, these FlashDisc only offers in a size of 16MB per piece! Though it is better in capacity than a floppy disc, it is nothing comparable to the bigger capacity thumbdrives these days. It retails $19.99 in Best Buy for 3 pieces, the same amount of money you can get a decent 512MB thumb drive or at least 2 pieces of 256MB drives. But these thumbdrives are babyproof, meaning it would be safe under babies hands.
