Known for their Stunning cutting edge Technology, combined with astonishing functions and applications, these phones are more of Coolest Gadget. Taking picture becomes much simpler, besides creating and posting to your blog and surfing for other blogs standing on the roadside. Or while taking a bus ride. Like a mobile office that moves with you. That includes surfing for other Technology Blogs to see what’s next in the pipeline. Sony makes some distinguished Gadgets you can count PS3 is one of them.

Digital Hour Glass Watch

Text Link Ads

Sand+Time Watch is a project that unites modern technologies and old ways of measuring time. Sand+Time offers its wearer the time in modern electronic hours, but the form of the interface has also been borrowed from an old sand hourglass. The watch functions in two modes. The first, the screensaver, takes the form of a sand hourglass counting a certain time unit set by the user to their preference. (The default setting for the hourglass is to count one minute.) The second mode displays the time in numbers – the most common electronic interface for the modern person.

20GB PS3 Discontinued by Sony

Text Link Ads

Apr 13, 2007
According to reports, Sony has confirmed the discontinuation of the 20 GB model of PlayStation 3.

The official announcement from Sony reads,
At launch, we offered two separate models of PlayStation 3 to meet the diverse needs and interests of our PlayStation fan base. Initial retail demand in North America was upwards of ninety percent in favor of the 60GB SKU, so we manufactured and shipped-in accordingly.

The announcement further reads,
Due to the overwhelming demand for the 60GB model from both retailers and consumers, we have ceased offering the 20GB model in North America. In addition to the larger internal hard drive, the 60GB PlayStation 3 features added storage media slots and built-in Wi-Fi not found in the 20GB system. Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model.

Apparently, the reason behind discontinuing of the 20 GB model has much to do with pricing and lack of certain features in this model vs-a-vs the 60GB one. The 20 GB model was available for a price of $499, where as the 60 GB model is available for $600.

It's obvious most buyers would prefer buying a bigger and better PS3 for a few dollars (read: $100) more...

However, those who already own a 20GB model need not worry, as the company has reportedly assured these customers of continued support the same as promised upon purchase.

Toshiba Qosmio G40 LapDesktop

Text Link Ads

Here s a sneak peek at the specs for one of Toshiba s Qosmio GXX line of desktop replacements:
The Qosmio G40. Not only does it have a 17 1920 x 1200 screen, its dual 200GB hard drives, T7300P Core 2 Duo processor (Santa Rosa) and 2GB of RAM make it rocking!

The other usual basic necessities for such a high configured system are obviously included, but with the 512MB GeForce 8600M GT graphics, an HD DVD-R drive and HDMI 1.3 in the mix makes it even more interesting. The laptop will most probably be out initially in Europe sometime in June, with a whopping price of around 3000/$4000 (Rs.1, 71,070). So this one is just a look-but-don t-touch item for now.

Xbox 360 QWERTY thumb Keyboard

Text Link Ads

Rumors about a QWERTY keyboard to support the Xbox 360 have been around for quite some time now and I am sure you will be glad to know that Microsoft has come up with a thumb keyboard for the 360, adding this to its ever growing list of peripherals.

There are a few things you must know before you decide to get one of these:

* The thumb keyboard plugs into the headphone/data jack on the bottom of the controller.

* It comes bundled with its own headset since it doesn't pass the signal through, and
cannot work with current peripherals.

* The keyboard is backlit; the chat bubble icon in the photos is an MSN icon.
