This keyboard design known as the Yu Type keyboard created by Royal College of Art student Yusuf Muhammad in the design competition held by Toyota. The design should prove to be helpful especially for those who struggle to learn and type with all ten fingers (you know, the two finger typist or aka hunt and peck typist…), the Yu Type keyboard would give the opportunity to increase their speed and confidence as they would be able to hunt, peck and see what they’ve typed on the mini display instead of painfully extending their neck contantly just to check whether they’ve made a mistake. Still though, the best way is really to learn to type properly if you asked me!

Here comes another very glossy Inspiron Mini from Dell. The Mini 10 is a 10-inch deal powered by an Intel Atom Z530 processor running at 1.6GHz, with a glass screen, a multi-touch trackpad with gesture support, built-in GPS, 802.11n Wi-Fi, mobile broadband and even an integrated TV tuner.

That glossy 10-inch display can show 720p high-definition content, and the screen itself is a widescreen 16:9 model. An edge-to-edge keyboard helps take advantage of what little typing space is available on a laptop this size, so all being well the Mini 10 won’t be out of the question for speedy typists!

Dell didn’t release much other details at its press conference, but we’d expect Windows Vista or Windows XP on board to be likely, a couple of gigabytes of RAM and a solid-state disk option, just like the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. No prices or availability details yet, but we’ll keep you posted.

Video: HP Data Messenger smartphone

On January 12, 2009, in Cell Phones, Featured, by KLS

A very quick video preview of the HP Data Messenger, one of the latest smartphones by HP with a style that very much so suits businessmen. The HP Data Messenger is a quad-band GSM smartphone with HSDPA support. It features 65k color touch screen, 3-megapixel camera, GPS, QWERTY keyboard, WiFi and runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

As some of you will probably have learnt Palm just got back in the game! Seriously. For those of you who have missed this news or skipped the news regarding Palm from our CES 2009 roundup, this you don’t want to miss. The latest Palm Pre is a svelte new smartphone that runs Palm’s all-new, touch based webOS mobile platform. The Pre boasts a 3.1-inch touch screen with a gesture area below, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 8GB of internal storage, on board is WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3-megapixel camera with LED flash. The Pre, initially will be available only from Sprint. The Palm phone will be sold alongside the Touchstone, an inductive charging dock that lets you charge up wirelessly just by laying the Pre on top of it, which leaves me absolutely speechless. It’s quite clear that Palm is up for a challenge, is it comparable to iPhone or RIM BlackBerry Storm or Google Android G1 or even Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, I think definitely and no doubt we will be hearing about Palm Pre for the rest of this year.


Here’s a quick hands on gallery [via Engadget, Gizmodo] featuring the Palm Pre in greater detail…

We’ve talked quite abit of CES 2009 all this week and that has dried out most of our brain juice! As you know this year’s CES is almost coming to an end. Of course, we weren’t able to cover everything. CES is always that time of the year when we are super excited about seeing all the new and emerging technology, gadgets but we hardly have enough time to show you them all. So we’ve decided we won’t do a weekly roundup like usual this week, because it’s actually been an all CES week. So in case you’ve been away for a few days, here’s a quick roundup which we’ve put together of some of the hottest new gadgets featured at the CES 2009 this week.

This list we think are already the very essence of CES this year, though we only left out a few which we felt were rubbish… Penultimately, I think we will come back and have a flickr through some of these and talk more about them because I don’t think I’ve read even 70% of these yet!
