  • HTW (who?) Announces Solar-Powered Mobile Phone

    Here’s a little something for the solar power proponents in the CG audience. Chinese electronics manufacturer HTW announced the S116 Solar Mobile phone at CeBIT and it seems pretty promising. Unfortunately there wasn’t an actual working model or any model available for display. A 40 minute charge yields 20-25 minutes of talk time, but does anyone carry their phone where it can… Read More

  • Technovision's 205-inch LCD TV: How Big is Too Big?

    Technovision's 205-inch LCD TV: How Big is Too Big?

    TV obsessives take note: the fine folks at Technovision unveiled a 205-inch Luxio LCD TV at CeBIT. (And to think people were drooling over 108-inch TVs at CES earlier this year.) You may well need to move into a bigger house just to be able to fit all 8.3 x 15 feet of the TV. The Italian manufacturer didn’t specify how much the TV would cost, but I’m gonna take a wild guess and… Read More

  • Went to CeBIT for the iPhone? 2BAD4U!

    Went to CeBIT for the iPhone? 2BAD4U!

    Did you fly to CeBIT to see the iPhone up close? Did you dream of the iPhone in your small Hanover hotel, idly stroking your Nokia N80, dreaming of multi-touch? Well, sucks to be you because Apple didn’t exhibit the phone at CeBIT and MyiPhone thinks its because the iPhone lost to Joost as CHIP magazine’s top whatever of the year. Pretty petty, but I wouldn’t put it past… Read More

    Mio C320, C520 and C520T Widescreen GPS Units

    Mio makes, like, a lot of GPS devices of various shapes and sizes and just showed off three hot little numbers at CeBIT. There’s the C320, C520 and C520T, all of which have a 4.3-inch widescreen, touchscreen display and the latest Tele Atlas maps. Awesome. Mio’s also quite proud of its new split screen interface, which supposedly helps show more information on the screen than… Read More

  • Samsung UbiSync USB Monitor

    The Samsung USB monitor we told you about some time ago is at CeBIT and it’s way better than we thought. It was reported that only three to five peripherals would work from one USB port, but it’s been confirmed that six is actually the number. A Samsung rep stated that a setup with 2GB of RAM and a dual-core processor running at 2GHz could easily support six monitors. There was no… Read More

The first thing you’ll notice are the badass graphics that you can get for your machine that range from graffiti, photography, PC artwork and other licensed images. The Commodore’s come in four varieties for… Read More
