Crunch Pad Internet Tablet computer

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes on the CrunchPad since our last update in April, and have just about nailed down the final design for the device. We’re showing the conceptual drawings here today. In another few weeks we’ll have the first working prototypes in our office.
This launch prototype is another significant step forward from the last prototype. The screen is now flush with the case and we’ve decreased the overall thickness to about 18 mm. The case will be aluminum, which is more expensive than plastic but is sturdier and lets us shave a little more off the overall thickness of the device.
I believe the device now actually looks better than the original concept design we published last summer. Compare the images below to the first prototype and you can see how far we’ve come. If you’re interested, here’s Prototype B. Pictures of Prototype C, which is the device we’re actually demo’ing to people now, are here.

Cuppa Social Laptop

The Cuppa is the brainchild of Ben Arrent, who conceptualized this powerful device as a solution for social networking and controlling household gadgets via one system. The Cuppa sports a very slim form that belies its dominant functions.

It also sports a RFID reader whose range is both short and long. The ambient and detailed display allows interfacing with multiple monitors. The functions keys have been assigned names so that they are much more useful. Cuppa is touted as the bridge between desktop and mobile phone and is designed to be used in the home, but will fit perfectly in an office environment as well. The Cuppa Sensor is a sticker that could be hidden on any device. Some devices may require an extra connector to help stream that data from it.

N81 8GB Smartphone

I have been using Nokia N-Series N81 8GB for last few months and I think its enough time to judge any phone. This phone was launched in August last year by Nokia and it is truly an exciting smartphone with the power of symbian OS and spiced up with the N-Gage platform for games lovers.
I bought this great phone in April 2008 for about $475 not just because of the 8GB disk space but for its rich features. The most exciting feature in N81 for me is its connectivity to WiFi which is very much conveinent to get connected through a publicaly available hotspots. So, you can get connected and check your email in almost all of the good restaurants and hotels which are providing free internet connectivity via Wifi enabled broadband internet connections. I usually connect N81 to use internet with my TP-Link 108M DSL Router.
The phone has state of the art slider feature with a shiny surface, dedicated controls for music playback, an excellent voice quality with DVI sterio speakers and lot more space for your multimedia audio and video files. Other features include 2MP cameras (front and back) with flash, 3G, bluetooth and USB for data transfer. You can find more technical details at GSMArena. During the four month of usage, I did not find any problem in the phone  and overall I a satisfied with my cell phone device.

Rival Tablet PC

Love it or hate it, the $499 entry level iPad is much cheaper than anyone expected. Tablet PC makers which were hoping to ride the wave of enthusiasm Apple was bound to kick up, are now being forced to step back and really question if they have what it takes to compete. Unnamed sources from within Asus and MSI claim they were counting on an iPad that would debut at $1,000 or more, making room for a more powerful and open device for $200-$300 less. Now that the new price to beat is less than half of what they expected, they will need to determine how they will differentiate if they can't win on price.
Apple made a lot of questionable decisions in the design of its new tablet, but its difficult to argue with their business intuition. They clearly understand that in order to create and hold on to early adopters, they will need to lock as many people as possible into the iTunes application ecosystem, even if that means sacrificing their usual fat margins to do it. They are willing to risk making a small profit on the entry level device with the hope that they might convince you to upgrade to a more expensive model when you reach the store, and if all else fails, make up any lost revenue when you come back for accessories or hit up the iTunes store.
The iPad has some pretty serious limitations, sure, but can a $500 tablet PC running Windows 7 really take on Apple?

Sony Rolls Out Goofy Music Player

Is Sony’s egg cracked? Japan never ceases to amaze me with its abundance of new gadgets. The most recent gizmo to come from Japan, the Sony Rolly, is no exception.
Unveiled on Monday, the Rolly is an egg-shaped music player that can flap and rotate its robotic wings, gyrate across the floor, and spin up a storm amidst a neon show of green and blue lighting.
 In addition to playing back music from its internal memory the Rolly can also receive music streamed via a Bluetooth connection.
As far as I’m concerned the best part of the Rolly is its reported ability to analyze music and come up with the dance moves. Users can even program the Rolly’s moves themselves. The gadget is small enough to fit in your hand and comes standard with 1GB of internal memory (some 500 songs, though programing the Rolly with more complex dance moves will diminish that capacity), stereo speakers, and a five hour battery life. It goes on sale in Japan on September 29 for equivalent of about $353 U.S.
If Sony’s marketing campaign is any proof, it appears trying to imitate the thing on the dance floor is half the fun of owning one. Here is a link to an amusing commercial for the Sony Rolly airing in Japan where people try to keep pace with Rolly moves. Finally a dance partner for Sony’s Aibo robotic dog. Lets hope the robotic dog doesn’t eat the robotic egg.

Transformers gadgets in disguise

Just in time for the new Transformers movie to hit screens, Hasbro has released a new series of the classic toys, this time based on today’s most popular high-tech gadgets.

The Real Gear Transformers series conceals little toy robots disguised as cell phones, digital cameras, portable video game systems among other things.
Other designs include an MP3 player, camcorder and some (not so high-tech) binoculars. The toys are expected to hit shelves any day now and should cost about $10 each.
Now if only Hasbro could make these into really functional gadgets, I’d buy ‘em in a minute.

ASUS Eee Phone On Track At The End Of This Year

Not a lot to go on here, but PC World is quoting an "ASUS representative" who says that the Eee Phone will be announced later this year. Unlike the Garmin-ASUS offerings, the Eee Phone would be a low-cost consumer jobbie as previously confirmed by ASUS' chairman, Jonney Shih. As such, we expect it to have a massive bezel, a cheap, over-sized plastic case and some kind of open-source OS that consumers can't resist. Hey ASUS, you got lucky with the Eee PC, don't push it. 
We all know that low cost Eee PC's from ASUS have gained a lot of popularity globally. ASUS also demonstrated some impressive products at the CES 2009 recently and announced that it will be launching an Eee Phone in the near future. Just like the Eee PC, the Eee Phone will be a low budget Smartphone and it's expected to come with a full Touch Screen and 3G connectivity. It is also expected that the Eee Phone will come loaded with Google's Android OS and have interactive features that will allow users to control many digital devices by ASUS.
