Casio Exilim NX9250 ‘Spy-Shot’ reveals a 5.1 megapixel cameraphone

Casio Exilim NX9250 ‘Spy-Shot’ reveals a 5.1 megapixel cameraphone

A snaphot of the much-speculated Casio Exilim NX9250 has turned up and revealed its exact megapixel count yesterday. Fewer details have we learned about the incoming Casio Exilim camera phone NX-9250. Casio and Verizon were up to release a new Exilim cameraphone from the hunch of an FCC draw-up. It would be a dualband CDMA (800/1900MHz) device with EVDO Rev. A support and was speculated to carry megapixel count digital camera function from its Exilim P&S camera line-up or perhaps to spare parts of its much-advanced W63CA 8MP AMOLED cameraphone. Not by much, the chubby Exilim doesn’t look as sleek as the W63CA from the spy photo. Though out of focus, it’s not hard to tell the 5.1 megapixel imprint from the picture. If anything more to be disclosed, it’s likely a swivel-flip design cameraphone.

Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 goes for an antique look

Just because you love the latest gadgets doesn’t mean you have to forfeit more traditional designs. And if you love antiques, you can still get that priceless look from modern tech. Case in point, the Casio G-Shock G8100A-5. This wrist watch is made from bronze-colored aluminum and has a perforated resin band, giving it a rustic appeal. Some may define it as “steampunk” but I wouldn’t quite agree with that. For me, steampunk requires gears, mechanisms, steam and other Victorian tech. Just because something looks old, doesn’t mean it’s steampunk. But I digress.

Casio Blanview LCD transmissive panels for better outdoor viewing

Transmissive LCD panels are nothing particularly new - they basically reflect sunlight back through the panel so as to mimic the effect of a traditional backlight, and as such make the screen usable outdoors - but Casio's latest attempt is so efficient it doesn't require any supplementary backlighting at all.  Named Blanview LCD, the system boasts 30-percent increased transmittance and 50-percent reduction in power consumption over the previous display technology.
