On this unusual day, we find ourselves thinking on whether we should let out word about this new concept and unusual netbook or not. If you are reading this, then guess we did. This netbook which has an unusual ‘no-capital-letter’ name has been designed by Yang Yongchang. It is a nice tiny netbook with a full-sized foldout keyboard. The iweb 2.0 netbook has similar looks of both a ThinkPad and an iPad.
This small netbook can still fit a full-sized keyboard but it has a small screen which is not surprising for a netbook. Its mouse is similar to the one found on a ThinkPad and it also has a long, thin strip trackpad which we guess wouldn’t have much use for. Also it also looks like the Palm keyboard docks or maybe like the iPad keyboard dock. It has a multi-touch screen which makes the tiny screen nicer, again almost identical to an iPad. No word yet when this netbook will be releasing and we can’t wait to read the first review of it.
What comes to mind when we hear of a Nikon camera? Professional photography comes to mind. Nikon does really have a nice couple of DSLRs which are aimed at professionals but they also have cameras for those who just want to take shots and have a great time.
The digital camera we are going to check today is the Nikon CoolPix S640. The camera features a 12-megapixel sensor that is supposed to make shots taken look good but differs in this. It comes with a 2.7-inch screen. It also features 5x zoom lens.
The thing that is striking with this camera is that it is not slow. Normal cameras compared to DLSRs are slow in terms of the time it takes between startup and taking a shot. If you fancy this feature then this camera might be right for you.
The CoolPix S640 is a fast camera, no doubt about it, but afterwards, there’s no fun. For what it’s priced for, we think it’s too much and you can certainly get a better camera for the very same price.
HTC over the years has managed to make a name for themselves in the market. Thanks to good phones/smartphones such as Touch Diamond & Touch Pro, HTC has managed to catch the attention of consumers.
Today we have with us, a favorite of ours, the Touch Diamond from HTC. This phone has a nice design which is what makes it one of our favorites as it can easily fit into our pockets. There’s a 2.8-inch display that supports 262,000 colors which makes the screen as bright as it can be as well as sharp. It also has a 3.2-megapixel camera that can be used to shoot videos. It comes with a headset adapter and it supports 3.5mm and 2.5mm headsets.
With this phone, users will have the option of either using the on-screen QWERTY keyboard and compact QWERTY keyboard (physical). For us, the physical keyboard is better as we don’t accidentally hit a different key when using it. The phone is made for those intending to use it while on the move as it has features like Visual Voice Mail, VZ Navigator, Office Mobile, Mobile IM, Audio Booster, Adobe Reader LE, MP3 Trimmer and Remote Desktop. Currently available at Verizon Wireless, this Windows Mobile phone is priced at $299.99.
LG’s Rumor Touch has been rumored to be out by the end of this month. This LG phone was first unveiled at the CES event where the other phone, the LG Lotus Elite was also unveiled. The LG Rumor Touch will be available to be purchased online and in stores including telesales on its release date.
The release of this phone comes after a long time considering the fact that the other LG phone, the Lotus Elite, was released shortly after it was unveiled at the CES event. Sprint released the LG Lotus Elite and it is rumored to be the same routine for the LG Rumor Touch. Further reports suggest that the phone will be available at all Sprint stores nationwide at the price of $80. The Rumor Touch will released in just one color and later on, it will be released in other colors including red and purple as well.

The Canon A490 and A495 are the updated models of Canon’s PowerShot A480. Let’s talk about the models individually. Both cameras shot great pictures when taken in Auto Mode but somehow they do not respond that fast when we take shots continuously. Shooting with both cameras by choosing different shooting modes is nice as both excel in their own right. Unfortunately, the features that we looked forward to in a Canon camera are not present in both cameras. Those are notably the new creative shooting modes–Super Vivid and Poster Effect and a Face Self-Timer.
The Canon PowerShot A495 is available in different colors. It has a 9-point Face AiAF autofocus system. It uses 18 scene settings for its Smart Auto mode. The Canon PowerShot A490 is available in silver. It has a 5-point Face AiAF autofocus system and uses 13 scene settings for its Smart Auto mode.
If you are looking for a nice camera with good ending results, you can try either the A495 or the A490. There’s a $20 difference between these two models.

Good morning everyone! We have with us here the Lumix DMC-FP3, a new digital camera from Panasonic. First thought about this camera is, it’s full of features, many options to choose from, how exciting! On the whole, how does this camera fare? Well, let’s find out.
From the outside, this Panasonic camera looks really good with its slim and at the same time, stylish body. It is available in several colors such as black, silver, blue, red and purple. It features 14.1-megapixel with a 1/2.33in image stabilised sensor that supports sensitivities up to ISO 1600 and also the ability to record 720p video at 30fps in the Motion JPEG format. Image quality is nothing to boost about in this camera though the video quality is much better but takes too much space on the memory card. Battery life is quite good.
The camera has Lumix DC Vario 6.3-25.2mm f/3.5-5.9 lens with a 4x optical zoom with an equivalent 35mm focal range of 35-140mm. On a last note, if you fancy the idea of playing around a camera’s many features then you will appreciate the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3 but if you care more about picture quality then there are many other better cameras around at cheaper prices.

Today on this tiring Tuesday afternoon, we finally decided to open up and break our Nikon Coolpix L110 into words. Basically, we just want to let out there that this digital camera is designed to consumers who are looking for an ultra-zoom compact camera. Aside from that, there’s not that much special to talk about on this camera. Controls are not that much to speak of and there seems to be a lack of manual options we don’t know why though. The Coolpix L110 has no rechargeable battery which will be difficult but can be resolved by purchasing a new one.
There’s a huge 15x zoom which will help in focusing deep into shots and pictures taken are so-so but not forgetting videos shot with this camera are of HD movie quality. Even though, there seems to lesser appeal in certain areas on the camera, the Nikon Coolpix L110 will definitely appeal to those who just want a point and shoot camera.
