The Pomera DM10 from King Jim, does not make notes for you if that is what you assume clever gadgets can do these days. But it has been designed for the sole purpose of supporting you in doing so. It’s not only a keyboard as you can see, though it’s not a netbook neither, it’s simply a device which will allow you to take note quickly (and by that, I mean in .txt).
It comes with 4-Inch VGA Display, a very minimalistic built-in memory of just 128KB, a microSD card slot that supports up to 2GB, an USB port. It’s also compatible with Windows Vista / XP and it measures 250x158x45mm.
Regarding the price, this fancy student gadget will cost you around 27,300 yens which is just under £200, more details at the source link below.

LG Electronics and PRADA today announced that the partnership that created the PRADA Phone by LG will release its second handset later this year. Almost identical to the highly successful original, the new very stylish mobile has a hidden secret. An ultra-thin keyboard which slides out from under the handset! As serenely as it appears it slides invisibly, effortlessly away – a modern icon of mobile style and design with an extra competitive edge.
The new Prada phone by LG is the highly anticipated successor to the original Prada phone, which first brought Prada together with LG, one of the most advanced technology companies in the world.
The Prada phone made history as the first full touch-screen phone to reach the market. With all the characteristics of the most digitally enhanced phones it was also a powerful aesthetic pioneer and quickly established its hold on the industry with over 1 million design-conscious users demanding handsets.
Its elegant good looks combined with a digitally sophisticated interface made it instantly appealing. The culmination of Prada research and development in the complete interior as well as exterior design and functionality of the phone and accessories was key to this success.
The unique QWERTY keyboard available only with the new mobile is designed for maximum ease of use. The metallic feel makes it a pleasure to touch and type, complimenting the slick design aesthetic. The silver keyboard along with the additional on-screen, call and hang-up buttons gives fresh tactility to the original minimal concept.
Other major enhanced features include 3G compatibility with video calling, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, full HTML browser, the 5 mega pixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens, and Wi-Fi accessibility.
This second generation of Prada handset if you like by LG is not just for pleasure, as you may already have realised, this is a luxury design accessory that sports some major improvements in comparison to its predecessor. This will allow it to compete on every level with some of the latest mobiles, hand held devices and smartphones currently in or coming into the market.
The latest, new Prada mobile will be available with a starting price of 600 Euros through major mobile dealerships in Italy, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Netherlands in the 4Q of 2008.
When you see the word: Swype, you will probably think about something like a swipe card, possibly the latest technology in swipe bank cards / debit cards?
I’m afraid it’s not related to that, but something even better! Check out Swype, possibly the next generation of input for text messaging created by the very same people who brought us T9 predictive text messaging, included in most phone models. Swype will soon to be released into the market in future phones.
Swype will let you swipe your finger across the keyboard when writing. No more lifting your fingers, no more pressing the wrong letters. It will even have support for stylus too, so you will be kind of ice-skating on the surface of your handset. There’s predictive text too and there are lots of editing choices.
Check out this latest Playstation 3 3-month modification project by PS3Hax, though this ‘laptop’ is abit big (16 x 10.5 x 4 inches when closed), when opened up it features a 17-inch 720p HDTV, 320GB HDD, built-in speakers and a keyboard. Great for ‘portable’ gaming and also websurfing, checking your email, typing is not a problem here!
Have a look at this new ad spotted by PalmAddicts, if this is true and not a photoshop masterpiece then it looks as if Palm will finally be making a combat by introducing a new Centro!? Many feel hopeful about this, I personally haven’t been attracted to touching any Palms for quite sometime and it would be nice if this Centro 2 would have sliding keyboard hidden somewhere too! Does anyone else know anything about this?
Geeks like us are always coming up with new ways to keep ourselves away from anywhere else in the house except at the desktop next to our beloved PC. Here we have another, rather extreme example that I wouldn’t have done, but someone did decide that they needed to cook while sitting at their PC. Their are also instructions published on how to do it over at Instructables (follow the link at the end of the post if you’re interested). The USB frying pan here in the picture, seems to cook rather well in the video, it does appear to take some time to heat up, I would say it looks rather dangerous and probably makes your room and computer all smelly and oily if you decided to fry something up? Might want to consider covering up the keyboard with a keyboard napkin if you want to keep things from getting all greasy!
Check out this video… Continue reading »

Don’t you just hate it when get your laptop keyboard all greasy and oily while trying to type and eat at the same time, the best way is to avoid getting near your computer but this new concept might just render that unnecessary after all!
It may not be very comfortable to type on and it’s not the most environment friendly method neither but at least it will stop the crumbs from getting stuck underneath your laptop keys…
