Folding mini keyboard

March 14, 2007


I used to think a folding keyboard for my smartphone was a necessity because I imagined doing all sorts of things on my old Treo — revise Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, balance my checking account, write elaborate emails with attachments — without anyone knowing I wasn’t at my computer. Little did I know then that trying to do real work on a palm device on a regular basis would kill my eyes and make me bitter. These days, I rarely do any work on my phone that requires typing, beyond sending one-line replies to emails.

Still, there are those times (for instance, when I’m on a plane and we’re two hours delayed in taking off), when a functional keyboard would be useful. I want one that I can carry in my purse (I want to carry everything in my purse). The Freedom Mini Duo Keyboard from ($69.95) has a full Qwerty keyboard, but is described as being just a little bigger than a credit card when folded up. It provides two modes, SPP (Serial Port Profile) and HID (Human Interface Device), so is compatible with Blackberrys, smartphones, and other Bluetooth-enabled devices, as well as devices using HID technology. Specific compatibility information is available on the site.

Weighing in at just 3 ounces, it provides 9 hours of continuous use battery life, or 45 hours of standby time (charges through USB cable).

Sony Cyber-shot G1 digital camera has Wi-Fi

March 14, 2007


One of the highlights at PMA 2007, the Photo Marketing Association’s annual tradeshow, was the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-G1 digital camera. A wireless digicam is by no means a new invention (Canon, Kodak, and Nikon have been shipping them since 2005), but it’s suprisingly a first for Sony.

Available next month for a whopping $600, the 6-megapixel G1 has a large 3.5-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, impressive 2GB of internal memory (expandable with Memory Stick Duo and PRO Duo cards), slide show with music capabilities, and a bevy of wireless sharing options.


The camera-to-camera feature enables up to four cameras to wirelessly send photos to one another (as long as those photos aren’t copyright-protected, of course), and users can even upload images directly to a DLNA-enabled computer for instant uploading to the Internet.

Red Blackberry Pearl

March 14, 2007

RIM/Blackberry just announced a new color for their Blackberry Pearl, a deep red, to go along with the piono black and pearl white versions. With its digital camera, multi-media player and expandable memory slot, it comes closer to rivaling competitors in features, but still beats them all at it’s main functionality — emailing.

The Pearl from AT&T features an easy-to-use phone, an improved web browser, plus Push To Talk capability (which allows you to see whether family or coworkers are available to talk) and a GPS-based wireless navigation service. The built-in digital camera boasts 3 zoom levels (up to 5X) and flash, and the multi-media player supports MP3 and AAC music files, as well as MPEG4 and H.263 video formats.

Allowing up to10 supported personal and corporate email accounts, including most popular ISP email accounts, it’s quickly modeling itself to become more than an executive email-based device. Small and stylish, it’s bound to attract new users to the Blackberry platform.

Radio SHARK for Internet radio

March 14, 2007


You love your radio, but why are you listening to it on someone else’s terms? Time to take computerized control over your radio listening. With Internet radio and time-shift recording, it works on your schedule. Plug the radio SHARK “fin” into your computer’s USB port, load the software, and start tuning in. With your new SHARK , you can record AM and FM radio broadcasts in real time, or set up recordings to occur later, or according to a repeating schedule. Recordings are saved to your hard disk, and can be added (automatically) to your iTunes library for listening to on your iPod.

SHARK 2 can “pause” live radio, so if you need to take a break hit “pause” and come back later to right where you left off. Along with the SHARK “Fin,” you get the optional antenna extension (in case you live or work or play in the shadow of poor reception), and the easy-to-use radio SHARK 2 software.

The best part is that in addition to your usual AM/FM drivel, you get to explore the varied world of Internet radio.
