For reasons unknown, Nintendo decided to leave out the option to playback DVDs on their ever-popular Wii console. And even though the console is always in demand, it seems like a serious oversight to leave out one of the most basic functions in modern consoles. I mean, the XBox 360 and PS3 have it. Why not the Wii?
Storage manufacturer Kingston has announced a new microSDHC card, which packs 8GB and supports up to 4MB/sec transfers. Intended for use with media files on cellphones and other mobile devices, it can also be used in full-sized SDHC slots courtesy of the card adaptor.
If Flip's latest $180 Mino camcorder is too rich for your blood (or just a little predictable) then RCA might have a few more options to tickle your fancy. The three new devices all use solid-state memory and adopt the upright, somewhat blocky design common in budget camcorders; entry level is the $89.99 MyLife EX200, mid-range is the Pocket EX205 at $99.99, while top-spec (relatively speaking) comes the Traveller EX210, at $149.99, which has a splashproof housing.
Verizon and LG are wowing us today with a few new entrants onto Verizon's network. The new devices are all pretty nice, but the showstopper is no doubt the Dare. The Dare is an all touch device, that will have a 3.2 mega pixel camera with auto focus, and will sport on board image editing. The Dare is a PRADA variant, it is similar to the AT&T offering, of the LG Vu. It is expected to launch next month.
For some reason, this Micro Orb spy camera makes me think of Columbo-star Peter Falk. Perhaps if the TV detective had been fitted with a 1.5-inch sphere capturing 30fps MPEG-4 video (with sound), gathering evidence might've been even easier. On sale in mid-May, the video camera has a three hour rechargeable battery and can record up to six hours of footage onto a 2GB microSD card.

It’s a basic mobile Internet device. It has a rubberized bottoms, touchscreen, and slide out full keyboard, a very simple user interface, and a stylus. On the back is the battery and a 3MP camera for taking photos.
There is also a video walk-thru below so you can see what this new video service ATT is offering is all about. In case you didn’t know the LG Vu is going to be the device that ATT is going to use to launch their new mobile TV service.
This is a pretty solid corporate level device. It has PUSH email, a QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, GPS, a MicroSD Card Slot, and you can save some minutes by using the WiFi networks at your school, work, and/or home.
However, you get stuck with GPRS/EDGE for data when you aren’t near a WiFi network, which is more than sufficient for the integrated mail app, but internet surfing is likely to be abysmal. I must concur with Mr. Davies on this one, it is very nice to finally see a new BlackBerry that isn’t a Pearl and doesn’t have the words “Pearl” or “Curve” or “World Edition” in the title, I like it when already amazing devices return back to the basics.
