New Tech Items

I want one !

The Garmin nuvi is a Personal Digital Travel Assistant that combines a GPS navigator, language translator and travel guide capability, an MP3 player, an audio book player, a currency and measurement converter, a world clock, and a digital photo organizer -- all in one device the size of a pack of cards . One day, no doubt all the functionality we could ever wish for will be available in one device, but until then, companies such as Garmin will continue to recognise market opportunities for suites of functionality that are very compelling to a thin, vertical market – in this case travellers.

Make all sorts of calls : "Cicero Networks Ltd., a leading developer of wireless Voice over IP (wVoIP) solutions and a pulver 2005 company, today announced the launch of CiceroPhone – a converged softphone which supports both VoWi-Fi and Cellular calls. Optimised to run on a range of wireless devices including Wi-Fi enabled mobile phones and PDAs, CiceroPhone enables fixed-line operators and alternative service providers to offer their enterprise and residential customers cost-effective wireless VoIP services."

My next cell phone (maybe). Asian phone wizard Pantech and Curitel is throwing in its PT-K1500 as more competition to the ubiquitous RAZR. Pretty, 16.9mm slim and weighing only 80 grams, it’s got MP3 capabilities and sadly for the Asians, only a 1.2 megapixel camera (c’mon, you can do better than that). But the slideout keyboard is totally cool looking and as a whole, it does catch the eye nicely. Comes in black and silver right off the bat though no pricing is out just yet. More pix here
