What a massive difference the new Kindle 2 makes when it is compared with the old Kindle. Not only does it have smooth sexy round corners but its also so much more thinner. The redesign of its keyboard also makes the new Kindle much more appealing, but I have to say the most attractive feature to me in terms of hardware is its further improved battery life. Yes I know the display is only grey and white, but you can still read four days non stop on it, that’s striking! Check out the hands on gallery after the jump…
When we were sent the LG Renoir KC910 for some hands on review, we were already well impressed with LG’s ability to have made such major all round multimedia improvements in the new LG Viewty successor. But now it seems LG’s plans are official and they will be taking that even further for the coming 2009. As you will have heard, just last week, a picture of a new full touchscreen phone, the LG Arena KM900 surfaced. We can now be fairly confident that this is true and this latest flagship called the LG Arena will have some very stunning features and even more so, some features which have not yet even been seen on mobile phones (not that I know of)! The LG Arena will have a unique user interface that takes the form of a 3D cube. This new cube-based layout provides four customisable home screens for direct access to all features. This makes accessing music, movies, pictures much more easier than most phones, so if you thought the LG Renoir’s updated user interface already showed vast improvement, the LG Arena’s user interface will definitely strike you as something quite unique.
Though we don’t know all about its specs at the moment, this will be revealed in greater detail in due course – Mobile World Congress, February 16th at 2.00pm (CET). All we do know from our friends at the LG Blog is the below, though I wish I could find out more about whether its got an amazing camera sooner!
Citroen announced plans earlier last week to revive the DS nameplate for a line of mid-range premium models based on the new C3, C4 and C5. They decided that they could no longer wait for the Geneva Motor Show debut of the new Citroen DS3 and published a few images of the concept a few weeks early and rightly so I can understand why!
Just stumbled across a little something Star Wars fans will definitely love and couldn’t resist posting a picture of it here. This is the Star Wars Clone Trooper Voice Changer Helmet that’s currently available on Amazon and claims to fit both kids and adults.
A buyer from Amazon liked it so much that he uploaded his own photo of it worn by his five year old, lol!
Hope you’re having a good morning so far. If you’re a Google Android T-Mobile G1 user, then you’re about to have an even better morning! Not long ago, we showed you a video of multitouch on the G1, well now it could about to become reality for your G1. Because Gizmodo has over the weekend released an excellent guide on how you can (hack) enable multi touch web browsing on the G1, it doesn’t appear to be a difficult process and everything you need for this quick DIY will be available at the Gizmodo link below. Oh and by the way, it is free, just because I hate it when people try to exploit these guides and make it into one page websites charging people loads for it.
The new Google Earth 5.0 has been out for about a week or so now, but for those who have never tried to use it may still not be convinced why you should download it (for free firstly!), try it and have a play with it. The new and updated Google Earth is probably the biggest library of knowledge (and fun) any free software has ever been able to offer. Yes, indeed there is now a Google Earth Pro that costs 400 bucks, but that is hardly necessary considering the amount of information and fun factor you can already get from the free version.
Google Earth 5′s biggest new features include the other final frontier, the 20th century, and the Red Planet: Mars. You can now go back in time, look at shipwrecks, and even track tagged marine animals, I don’t think this has been something that any other free software has been able to offer.
