Apple iPod Mobile Speakers Look Like Bags but Aren’t

Apple iPod Mobile Speakers Look Like Bags but Aren’t

We're always keeping our eyes open for crazy contraptions, or gadgets as we like to call them, and usually that means we have to point our eyes across the ponds, to really find something of interest. This time around, we've struck gold. These speakers look like bags, and are even just as mobile as a bag, but we assure you: they aren't.

ENT Android MID Makes Another Appearance; This Time With Live Images

ENT Android MID Makes Another Appearance; This Time With Live Images

Back at the beginning of the month, we had a whole slew of Android information come swirling into our offices. We did our best to cover it, and part of that coverage was this little piece of Mobile Internet Device (MID) Heaven. It's a pretty slick, piano-black piece of tech that's running some might Android goodness. And, despite the coverage we splattered all over it before, we were lacking any real live shots of the device. Well, now's as good a time for change as any other, right?

Creative Zii Egg Nests in Developer’s Hands

Android is a venerable Operating System, whether you prefer to use it or not, and it's popping up on all sorts of peripherals. One of the good ones coming down the pipe line, is Creative's Zii Egg. We're still excited about this thing, even if there isn't even the faintest of words about an official, consumer-based release for the device yet. But, if you're a developer, then you can start to get excited, because Creative is starting to release its first shipment.

TomTom iPhone Car Kit Gets Approved by the FCC, Still No Launch Date

TomTom iPhone Car Kit Gets Approved by the FCC, Still No Launch Date

It's been about 10 days now since we last spoke about TomTom's upcoming iPhone Car Kit, but it's getting a bit exciting now, with the device slipping through the FCC inspection with a passing grade. And although we knew there wasn't a ton of information to be had the first time around, we're still pretty excited by what the FCC filing has laid out for us. Right up front, we've got the TomTom Car Kit showing off its own GPS chipset. And if that wasn't enough, it also comes along with Bluetooth, for some good old hands free communication.

Little Prince is Both Terrifying and Awesome

Little Prince is Both Terrifying and Awesome

Science fiction is a means to realize the things of our imaginations, and put them to task in the real world. But let's face it, if this keeps up, machines are going to take over the world. And, if they're anything like the Little Prince here, they'll look cute, terrifying, and shiny while doing it. This little piece was inspired by the Naked Sun, written by Isaac Asimov; R2-D2 from Star Wars; an egg; and insects. And while it's obvious this thing looks like all of those at once, it gets even creepier.

Nokia N900 showing up live on Twitter

Nokia N900 showing up live on Twitter

Live footage of the Nokia N900 hasn't been in short supply - in fact Nokia themselves provided some decent walkthrough videos of their new smartphone/internet tablet hybrid - but there's nothing like a few in-the-wild shots to get the blood pumping.  Happily there's more than just one prototype N900 in the wild, and now that the touchscreen Maemo marvel is finally official they're starting to come out of the woodwork.

Nokia E52 and E55 Review

Nokia E52 and E55 Review

Nokia World is just around the corner, and the tech world is already gaping at some of the company's more unusual devices.  SlashGear, though, have already been living with some of the Finnish company's more mainstream handsets, those which will probably sell far more than flagships like the N900, in the shape of the Eseries E52 and E55.  Differentiated primarily by an unusual, half-QWERTY keyboard on the E55, they both promise lengthy battery life and smartphone strengths in a compact form-factor.  Check out our full review after the cut.

Medion Akoya “The Touch” X9613 touchscreen all-in-one [Video]

Medion have unveiled a new all-in-one PC, the oddly named Akoya "The Touch" X9613.  Based around a 24-inch multitouch-capable touchscreen, rather than stuff the X9613 full of nettop components Medion have taken the far more sensible route and used Intel's 2.0GHz Core 2 Quad Q9000 CPU with 4GB of RAM, NVIDIA's GeForce GT 240M graphics card and a Blu-ray drive.  Newgadgets were on hand to grab a live demo video, which you can see after the cut.
