a.k.a. Mr. Gadget T, back with a few toys I found this week that I thought were
pretty cool. Let me know what you think!
Research In Motion (RIM) has long been a staple for many
business professionals with their Blackberry devices. They have even recently
made huge strides with the general consumer with the release of their Pearl and
Its been recently leaked by TheBoyGeniusReport.com that RIM
has a new consumer phone called the KickStart.
Its a clamshell design which is a first for them.
Here are a few of the features:
Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE”Next Gen” SureType
keyboard2 Megapixel camera16-bit color LCDsInternal LCD is 240×320,
external one is 160×128Wi-Fi b,g3.5mm headset jackOS is 4.6
No word on the price yet, but it should come out around
The next thing I wanna show you Jott.com. Its an interesting concept; Jott is a free service that
allows you to send emails, texts and reminders to yourself, people in your
contact list and to web services by calling a phone number.
Im ending this week with the A-100 HD ($179) media streamer from Popcorn Hour. What does it do you ask? It takes your
digital media whether from PC, NAS, digital camera, USB device, internal
HDD (not included) and even directly from the Internet via the Media Service
Portal such as Youtube.
If youre into file sharing, you can use it as BitTorrent
peer-to-peer downloader. The list of spec is real deep but I didnt wanna leave
