Sony Ericsson W902 Walkman phone

Posted by skraghav on July 25, 2008

We know you can never have everything of what you want, but that has not stopped Sony Ericsson from trying to deliver a handset that offers just about any and every feature that you think you might want in the form of the new W902 Walkman cell phone. Since it comes from the Walkman line and not the Cybershot range, you will certainly expect this to be an audio-centric handset, pumping out tunes with vigor. Good thing it comes with a Memory Stick Micro card slot that allows you to tote up to 8GB of music on a single card, which roughly equates to 8,000 songs or so on average. Of course, music playback isn’t the only function available on the W902 as it is more than capable of doing video just fine as well, making this one well-rounded handset that could prove to be a handy and versatile secondary portable media player (the iPod being the primary device, of course).

According to Ben Padley, Head of the Music Category at Sony Ericsson, “We all want more from our Sony Ericsson mobile phones than ever before. If you love music but don’t want to compromise on imaging and video, we have used our expertise as music phone specialists to give users a truly multimedia experience with this latest phone. The Sony Ericsson W902 is one of our most high-performing mobile phones yet and perfect for those who want it all.”

Some of the features available on the Sony Ericsson W902 include :-

  • Fast forward to fantastic sounds
  • Outstanding music sound
  • Clear Stereo + Clear Bass+ premium headphones = clear audio experience
  • Retro music navigation keys – skip forward, back, play and pause with the push of a button
  • Crystal clear video playback
  • 5 megapixel camera – snap your stills and videos
  • Scratch-resistant 2.2” QVGA screen and lens – made with mineral glass
  • 8GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) for more than 8,000 songs
  • UMTS/HSDPA 2100
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900

You will be able to pick one up in Volcanic Black, Wine Red and Earth Green this Q4 for a yet undisclosed price.

Samsung unveils Series 9 LED LCD HDTVs

Posted by skraghav on July 25, 2008

Samsung aims to launch a serious assault in the world of LCD HDTVs (not that they already aren’t trying their darndest best at the moment) with the new Series 9 LED LCD HDTVs. This flagship line is the second generation LCD HDTV from Samsung to utilize LED SmartLighting technology which merges both LED and 120Hz technologies for some truly stunning specifications and performance in the living room. More of these features will be listed down in detail after the jump, but to kickstart the entire new range, we will cover a couple of models – the 46″ and 54″ in this post.

As Samsung’s second generation LCD HDTV to use advanced LED SmartLighting with local dimming technology, the Series 9 LCD HDTV is able to achieve dramatic contrast levels and express “actual black levels” by completely shutting off a pixel’s light source, eliminating the grayish black picture plaguing many LCD HDTVs. Conversely, groups of pixels can be locally controlled to produce more light increasing the brightness of the Series 9’s picture when necessary. Furthering the Series 9’s ability to show deeper black levels, Samsung’s improved Ultra Clear Panel technology eliminates ambient light reflection that may affect picture quality, ensuring perfect picture clarity even in bright viewing surroundings. By enhancing color reproduction level, Samsung’s Ultra Clear Panel technology also lets consumers enjoy the detail and vibrancy of colors. Adding to the superior picture quality in the Series 9 is Samsung’s Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology that reduces the motion blur caused by fast-paced content. It’s ideal for diehard sport fans, avid gamers, and movie mavens alike.

Specifications of the Series 9 950 LED LCD HDTV include :-

  • 46″ and 55″ screen sizes
  • Full HD 1080p resolution
  • 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
  • 4ms response time
  • LED SmartLighting technology
  • Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology
  • UltraClear Panel
  • Wide Color Enhancer 2
  • DNIe Pro (Digital Natural Imaging engine) technology
  • 46”: 10-watts per channel, 2 channels
  • 55”: 15 watts per channel, 2 channels
  • 4 HDMI (HDMI-CEC) version 1.3 inputs (3 rear, 1 side)
  • 1 side USB 2.0 port (WiseLink Pro)
  • 2 component inputs
  • 1 composite input
  • 1 S-Video input
  • 1 PC input
  • 1 Headphone jack
  • 1 Ethernet connection (for InfoLink, and DLNA connectivity only)

You can pick up the 46” and 55” models for $3,199.99 and $4,199.99, respectively.

Mini Volkswagen Bus – 3-feet and 1-inch tall

Posted by skraghav on July 25, 2008

If there was a limbo competition for cars there is now no question on who the winner would be. How low can the Vancake go? Try this out for size. This mini-Volkswagen bus is only 3-feet and 1-inch tall. Meaning for the average 6 foot man, this automobile only reaches to around the waist area.

Officially known as the Camper, but affectionately titled “Vancake”, this super low-rider is the world’s lowest Volkswagen bus. Call us crazy, but we don’t see this niche having a super stringent competition at this point. And to add even more to its wonderful allure, there’s a little back story to go along with its awesomeness.

Designers Just Kampers and Andy Saunders created the Vancake in only three days! Working away during the Bug Jam festival at the UK’s Santa Pod Raceway from June 18 to June 20, the team managed to remove the Volkswagen’s roof, equip an electric sunroof, and completely redo the car’s previous paint job to give the Vancake a more scaled feel.

The Vancake is not only totally snack sized, but is also totally street legal. The only thing we’d worry about is getting rear-ended by fellow drivers who are fascinated by our tiny car. For only three days of work, we’d say it’s a hell of an accomplishment.
