Good news to fans of solar gadgets, LG’s new mobile phone, the GD510 may appear to look like any LG phone running S-Class UI but in fact its secret lies on its back. The GD510 will apparently have an optional solar panel that will replace the battery cover and can be used to charge the phone’s battery. We are yet to find out how exactly this mechanism will be achieved, but it sounds like this won’t be an accessory you will find on unboxing.
The phone comes with a 3-inch WQVGA touchscreen display with a resolution of 240 x 400, a 3-megapixel camera, and a 8GB of storage space to store your captured pictures or videos. The LG GD510 will be available beginning in mid-October in Europe, it will be interesting to know if this solar panel will in the future be compatible with other currently existing LG phones.
Though only available in 8GB at this moment. Samsung’s latest YEPP YP-M1 portable music players (available in black and white) will boast some pretty impressive features. Measuring in at an ultrathin 9.9-mm thick, the YP-M1 packs a 3.3-inch wide AMOLED touchscreen with an nVidia Tegra chipset for HD video playback, Samsung’s DNSe 3.0 technology, T-DMB, FM radio, dictionary function and stereo speakers. Multimedia formats supported includes MPEG4, XviD, H.264, MP3, and WMV. The new 8GB Samsung YP-M1 will be given a pricetag of around $252.
Apple has finally announced new important updates to their iPod Touch range today at the Apple event. Disappointingly, all the rumors about having an iPod Touch with a camera were untrue (or is Apple saving it for later on?). Though no major physical differences, users will be happy to hear that the 8GB iPod Touch has had a significant drop in pricing, it is effectively from now available at the Apple Store online for $199 (£149 on the UK Store).
This is one Mac that not everyone will be able to get their hands on I’m afraid. The guys from Colorware who love to play around with their customised coloring technology have dished out this very special matte black Stealth Macbook Pro completed using sof*touch hi-tech plastic rubber.
This gives the laptop a complete protection over any scuffs, fingerprints that we know we love to “hand out”…
Update (08062009): We’re blogging the WWDC live now!
This is very exciting news everyone, even before the WWDC gets on the way more images relating to the upcoming iPhone 2009 have leaked. While many have been calling the next generation iPhone, the 2009 iPhone, it seems Apple may have prepared more than was first thought.
The above leaked picture comes from Dutch T-Mobile’s internal network and shows that in addition to black and white versions of the so called “iPhone 2009” which will have capacities of 16GB and 32GB, there will also be an “iPhone 3G 8GB Black V2”. What this actually means remain a mystery, with the WWDC just hours away, might this be covered at some point this afternoon?
