Nokia N82 might finally be unleashed

The entire existence of this phone is mostly speculation, but Nokia has gone and pulled a viral marketing stunt that has given the laundry list of rumors some weight. The ad has the N series logo, a red curtain and a countdown timer, which when I checked it, was at 21 hours and some change.

If speculation comes true, this N82 is shaping up to be a better handset than the N95, which doesn’t make much sense. Anyways, some of the more extravagant specs are a 5MP cam with a Xenon flash and auto focus and GPS, the rest are fairly plausible for a Nokia handset.


Is the new 80GB Zune better than the comparable 80GB iPod Classic?

The answer appears to be yes. The guys at Giz took 6 reviews from other sites and did a Frankenreview with them, and all of the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. They all bring up several points where Microsoft is finally making moves.

The first is the wireless syncing, which is, and you have to admit it, an amazing feature. Next is the large screen and the shaved off bulk from its predecessor.


Acelabs S3 PMP

Every time I see the abbreviation for Personal Media Player I want to stick an “I” in there, anyways, this latest PMP from Acelabs is pretty bad ass. Its called the S3 and starts with a 2.8 inch QVGA screen that can show up to 260k colors.

On top of that there is an FM radio, voice recorder, and an FM transmitter, so no extra hardware required when you use it in your car, well, maybe a car charger. It’ll work for 15 hours on sound alone or 4 hours for video playback.


Technonia IXING TM-M1 PMP

Its thin, its pretty, its pretty thin. That’s just about the best way to summarize this 5.6mm thin MP3 player.

Well, that and the fact it has an easily forgettable, far too long, and highly confusing name, the IXING TM-M1. The screen is OLED and it appears to have touch sensitive buttons like that of the LG Chocolate.


Cowon A3 for sale Nov. 14th

There are some pretty amazing features that come with this PMP too. Lets start with the screen, its 4-inches diagonal, 16 million colors, and has a res of 800×480, that’s as good as my TV.

Then there is the FM radio with built in recorder, a USB host, MPEG-4 video recorder, and up to 1280×720 HD output. Codec support includes FLAC, DivX, and OGG, and I assume there is a sufficiently longer list of other codecs supported as that list doesn’t have any picture formats and no MP3 support in the list either.


Nokia E51 available in Germany

The E51, which was announced last September, is now available for purchase in Germany. It’s a business phone, and it can perform business functions like Speedy Gonzales himself with its 3G HSDPA and WiFi connectivity.

You can even use VoIP on the phone when you have a WiFi connection in order to save money. There is also a 2MP camera that has a 4x digital zoom.


NASD Technology NS-2010 Mercedes themed PMP

It has a 2” screen that can display up to 262k colors. You can play MPEG-4 and AVI video files on it too.

MP3 and WMA are the compatible audio formats. It also has an FM radio tuner built in and an SD card slot for storage.


Ruby Red Palm Centro dropping on the 4th

For those of you that have been looking at the Centro, lusting after the Centro, or otherwise have a desire to purchase one, they will finally be unleashing the Ruby Red one to the public on November 4th. I have one, and I have to be honest, I kinda love it.

For those of you that forgot, the Centro is Palm’s latest contribution to Sprint’s lineup and has a touchscreen, 1.3MP cam, EV-DO, support for up to a 4GB microSD card, and a full QWERTY keypad. It really is quite an amazing phone, I can do almost everything, except type, with just the touchscreen, and I can even make phone calls with nothing but the use of the touchscreen.


Boynq WakeUp iPod clock radio

It looks weird, but in a good way, like it could transform into iPodimus Prime at any point. Anyways, the thing perched on its edge are the speaker portions of the device, the front section is the clock and the media selector/controller.

A grand total of 20 watts of output isn’t bad for a clock radio, my Altec Lansing 2.1 system only puts out 12 watts, and I wouldn’t have traded it for a thing, until one of the satellites blew. So there are four quarters if you will to the front of this device, the top right is the iPod dock, top left is the media selector/controller and the bottom two is the clock.


Festival Stereo from MAKE

Well, they don’t actually tell you how to make it, some reader wrote in from Sweden showing off his latest creation. Although there are apparently specs so you can build you own in his Flickr account.

It looks like either a guitar amp or some other professional grade speaker that the guy built in a car radio and cup holders, for beer. I assume there is also a fairly hefty battery built in to power the thing, otherwise its portability is decreased to wherever there is an outlet.


Samsung F110 Adidas phone dropping soon

Well, the co-branding fairies are at it again, this time blessing a deal between Samsung and Adidas. The F110 is actually not that great of a phone if you are a geek, although if you are a more physically fit type of person, it’s great, with and included heartbeat monitor, step counter, and other sports applications.

It’s a 2.5G phone with GPRS/EDGE; there is also a 2” screen, a 2MP cam, and a FM radio tuner. It also has and MP3 player function and I assume a card slot of some sort.


HTC Polaris could get a name change before release

Not much is known about the phone in the first place, really its mainly just the name that was seen in a roadmap from HTC earlier this year. Well now its been confirmed that they are changing the name to the Touch Cruise (what?).

This will be the third addition to the Touch lineup preceded by the Touch, and then the Touch DUAL. Word is this one could show us some upgrades to the whole touchFLO system.
