Just recently spotted by our friends at GadgetVenue is this newly introduced wrap around portable device solar charger known as the SolarStrap. We love solar chargers here at GadgetLite mainly because these gadgets are so useful when it comes to powering portable devices for absolutely nothing and they are relatively environment friendly compared to others.
As you can see in the picture, Suntrica’s new SolarStrap has been designed for portable use allowing you to charge your device (eg phones, portable music players, etc) while you’re on the move. You can wrap it up using its velcro around rugsacks, luggages or anywhere where you think there may be sufficient exposure to sunlight.

Sharp has introduced its LE700 series LED TVs, using edge-lit LED backlight technology instead of CCFL. Unlike Sony, Samsung, Toshiba and Vizio, Sharp’s LE700 series have no local dimming function.
The lack of local dimming means that, in tests, the blacks in bright scenes won’t be on par with the best of those TVs above. The Sharp LE700 series lack both video streaming and use of Yahoo’s widget platform for services such as Amazon or Flickr.
