The Daily Slash: November 24 2010

It's a massive day for posts, where even SlashPhone has a fresh blast of news on this pre-holiday day. Lots of sales, lots of products being introduced. And then there was Black Friday.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 36 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review. Monday we found out that the Samsung Galaxy Tab would cost in the area of $200 to $400 depending on subsidies from wireless carriers. We can assume that the Galaxy Tab will cost on the higher end of that range. Later in the day on Monday the pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Germany surfaced via Amazon. The price of the Tab sans contract was listed at €799 or about $1,030 here in the States.

Mutewatch Features a Hidden Touch-Based Screen and Silent Alarm

Mutewatch Features a Hidden Touch-Based Screen and Silent Alarm

High-profile watches exist. We know this. But, in the case of most of them, the truth is that it takes advanced mathematics to just figure out what time it is. That's usually no fun. So, when we saw the Mutewatch, we had to take a second look, because, as you can see from the image, it doesn't look like there's much going on here. Especially no ridiculous amounts of math. So what makes the Mutewatch cool enough to be considered "high-profile?" Find out after the break.

Kokonatchi is your Japanese USB Twitter peanut [Video]

Kokonatchi is your Japanese USB Twitter peanut [Video]

We're not quite sure what it is that makes tech designers think that everyone wants a gelatinous flashing blob sat on their desk, changing color and shivering to communicate Twitter updates, but they keep cropping up every so often.  Students at the University of Tokyo and Waseda University are the latest to attempt it, with their peanut-shaped Kokonatchi robot changing color depending on the tone and mood of your incoming Twitter messages and even vibrating if "frightened".

Toshiba are looking to bring the wireless camera storage fight to Eye-Fi's door, with the announcement that they're setting up the "Standard Promotion Forum for Memory Cards Embedding Wireless LAN".  A collaboration with Trek 2000, the SPFMCEWL group would promote a standardized WiFi-enabled SDHC card that would communicate with the camera with cross-manufacturer consistency, wirelessly transferring its 8GB of storage to remote servers or directly to other cameras.

Emblaze First ELSE struts new UI in video demo

Emblaze First ELSE struts new UI in video demo

Still curious about the First ELSE smartphone and its nifty user-interface?  Various videos of the handset in action have emerged, including a five minute UI demo from the ELSE's launch in London this week.  The handset is based on the Access Linux Platform 3.0, onto the open-source underpinnings of which designers Emblaze Mobile built the sPlay menu system, which is intended to be navigated via the right-hand thumb.

Rather than digging through numerous menus and pop-up boxes, sPlay aims to keep a consistent UI throughout the ELSE handset.  We touched upon its more headline-grabbing functionality yesterday - the phone will record voice calls and store them along with records of when the call was made, and there are GPS-linked contextual reminders which flag up alerts whenever you’re near a preset position, for instance a shopping list while you’re near a supermarket - but Emblaze are planning an app store and building up to an SDK release for more functionality.
