For some who didn’t believe Powermat could really charge our gadgets wirelessly, here’s a video of it in action. I too was a tiny bit skeptical about all this, I never thought this was possible, but they have now done it at a CES demonstration for Engadget.
Powermat gadget chargers consists of a no conductive charging mat and a series of adapters which you can either plug into your gadget, or you can add a case to your gadget, which charges it via the charging mat without any wires.
The handwriting calculator application featured below is a showcase of Nokia’s new handwriting recognition technology being tested out at Nokia Beta Labs. It allows you to calculate handwritten math expressions using touchscreen Nokia device and featured in this video is the N800.
As expected from the news we heard via the iPhone Dev Team’s blog last week, one of the team member MuscleNerd demonstrated live today their iPhone 3G unlock tool ‘yellowsn0w’. MuscleNerd first showed that his iPhone 3G was running AT&T, then after running the tool, his iPhone was able to recognise and get a signal through his T-Mobile sim.

When you think of LG mobile phones nowadays, you would probably think of the PRADA phone, while LG isn’t renowned for quality camera phones, it doesn’t mean they can’t make one! The LG KU990 is actually one good example, though it isn’t the first time LG has launched a 5-megapixel phone, the appearance of the new LG KU990 certainly isn’t as nerdy as the LG KG920!
What makes the “Viewty” special is that it has been improved based on KG920’s attractive functionality. What we mean by that is… a camera with 5-megapixel (Schneider Kreuznach Lens), 2592×1944 pixels, autofocus / manual focus, video (VGA 30 frames per second, QVGA up to 120 frames per second), LED photo light and image stabilisation. In my opinion, the ability for the KU990 Viewty to shoot up to 120 frames per second is truly incredible. That rate could possibly be 2-4 times faster than any normal video camcorder, that being said, such a rate is highly capable of shooting fast moving action videos.
If that hasn’t attracted you yet, on top of all that high-tech machinery the Viewty will also come with a 3-inch touchscreen which produces gentle responsive vibrations when touched much like the of Motorola’s V8. With the new KU990 being a 3G (HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps) phone, the phone will be able to directly upload and watch videos straight from YouTube, now this certainly is something that iPhones haven’t been able to offer!
Check out the LG KU990 Viewty demo video and also a video taken at 120 frames per second right after the break:
