Sharp unveil highest-density methanol fuel-cell

Sharp have announced the development of a prototype direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) that it claims achieves the world's highest power density. The cell is constructed of a stack of multiple reed-shaped thin cells, sandwiched together with similarly shaped porous spacers. That increases surface area and maximises air-flow (essential for the fuel cell to produce power), resulting in 0.3W/cc power density.

Sharp intro 52 and 47 inch HD LCDs with built-in web browser

These serious looking business-people have heard you're not giving Sharp's new range of professional HD displays the respect they deserve, and they're not impressed. The TL-M4600 and TL-M5200 measure 46-inches and 52-inches respectively, with full 1920 x 1080 two-megapixel high-definition resolution. Intended primarily for commercial use, I can see their fan-free passive cooling and ethernet port winning them fans in the home install crowd.

Sharp are offering a solution, in the shape of the WHDI "wireless HDTV" accessory for their new X-Series LCDs. 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.

Oh, add onto the end of that model number another hyphen (-) and your choice of B, R, or W for Black, Red Wine, or White which are your bezel color choices (are they really marketing to gamers with colors like Red Wine?). They are apparently very bright and offer a 176 degree viewing angle.
