Developed in partnership with AMIMON, the system allows uncompressed HD footage to be sent wirelessly up to 100-feet.

Nokia N810 running Android OS – could be better than OS2008 for the N810

Some enterprising fellows over at eLinux.org have found a way to get Google's Android OS onto a Nokia N810 with its OMAP2 chips, which means this particular hack should also work with some Sharp Zaurus models. Anyways, the Android OS looks simply heavenly on the N810 and just goes to further prove that the OS isn't limited by a cellular connection, it can work on a broad range of mobile devices.

Sidekick Slide reviewed

Sidekick Slide reviewed

Well, with Mr. Rubin in the news a lot, one of the creators of Danger, the Sidekick mobile device manufacturer, lets take a look at a Sidekick that wasn’t from his former company, the Sidekick Slide made by Motorola. The Motorola phone doesn’t differ too much in the software department, it still uses the same OS as its Danger-made counterparts, but its screen doesn’t flip, it slides upward.

Overall, they liked it, the main thing they like was the aesthetics of the actual device, the way it looked, was shaped, stuff like that.
