The below list is what many believe will be the specs and features of the next generation iPhone (the one which will come with new OS iPhone 3.0) to be announced at the next WWDC on July 17, this summer. A source has told the Apple iPhone Apps blog that the new iPhone will launch on July 17. Not surprisingly, much of the specifications fit in with past rumors that the device will introduce a digital compass and a video recorder.

We were sent the Brain Fit iPhone and iPod Touch app by Mobirate for a quick review last week. Brain Fit is an addictive little puzzle game app which has been designed to provide endless hours of fun. Released just earlier this month, Brain Fit costs $0.99.

Sony has announced the development of its super tiny penny-like high definition (HD) camera module. Already now entering mass production, the latest in digital technology MCB1172 8.3-megapixel camera module is astonishingly small, smaller than a £1 coin measuring in at just 9.5 x 7.1 mm. Likely to turn up in a range of products later this year, the potential for Sony’s future products to have HD recording capability is overwhelming.

The MCB1172 from Sony Europe’s Image Sensing Solutions Division will have the ability to deliver 720p, at 30fps, it further includes movie stabilisation, face detection, autofocus and motion autofocus.

Having recently talked about Current Cost’s latest energy efficiency monitor system, the ENVI, we’d just like to post some photos of the one which we received just before the weekend. If you’re from the UK, you will know that our government highly recommends the use of monitors like these in every household. Though the ENVI only monitors electricity and not a combination of both power and gas, we’re keen on testing it out over the  next few days and provide you with some of our thoughts on what its like.

The Fit-PC2 has 1GB of RAM, a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive bay and a miniSD card slot. Also included is a HDMI HD output port. Connectivity wise, the Fit-PC2 isn’t bad at all.
