LG Projector Phone For Everyone!* (*=Business Customers Only)

December 20, 2009 Leave a comment

As I was watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation tonight, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a commercial for an awesome looking phone called the LG eXpo.

Now normally I wouldn’t be all excited about the release of a phone (unless it was the iPhone for Verizon) BUT I saw an interesting feature on the LG eXpo that caught my eye.

Yes…thats right…that is a projector on the back of that phone.

The phone itself runs Windows 6.5 and has the S-Class interface overlayed on to it.  The projector itself is basically an accessory that clips onto the back of the phone.  Some of the other features are a 5 megapixel camera, microSD card slot for increasing storage as well as the usual Wi-Fi connectivity.

This would be a great idea when you have a fun video to show a group of friends or when you have some free time and no TV or computer…..think again.

The LG eXpo is only available for Business Customers.

Why AT&T and LG chose to make it exclusively for business customers I will never know, but I do know it is a dumb decision….although personally….I would probably never use the projector.

Here is a video showing a quick review and demonstration of the projector:

What do you think about it?

Dell Adamo XPS Hands On…Well Not My Hands

November 5, 2009 Leave a comment

What I wouldn’t give to work at a “Gizmodo” or an “Endgadget” simply to be able to work with and review some of the most amazing products to come to market.

That being said…Gizmodo and Endgadget…If you happen to read this…I would LOVE to work for you.

Moving on….

Gizmodo, as well as Endgadget, just released their versions of hands on with the Dell Adamo XPS.

This thing is amazingly/freakishly thin….It opens with a heat sensitive sensor…and looks like a computer straight from Q’s lab.

The Dell Adamo XPS is going to be available for THIS HOLIDAY SEASON at a competitive $1800.  Here are some of the specs in the form of a press release:

DELL ANNOUNCES ADAMO XPS, A DAZZLING GIFT IDEA FOR STYLE-MINDED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
· World’s Thinnest Laptop is 0.4-inch thin

The pencil-thin Adamo XPS weighs just over 3 pounds** and measures 13.39 x 10.71 inches. Dell expects to begin taking orders and shipping the Adamo XPS with Microsoft® Windows® 7 pre-installed in time for the holidays. The Adamo XPS is priced starting at $1799.

· Adamo XPS Reinforces Dell’s Commitment to Craftsmanship and Design

· Advanced Head-Turning Design Offers Full Feature Set for On-The-Go Computing

ROUND ROCK, Texas, Nov 5, 2009 … Last spring Dell set the computing industry abuzz with the introduction of its Adamo brand, and along with it the world’s thinnest laptop PC. Today, the world meets a new champion of thin: The Dell™ Adamo XPS™, measuring 9.99mm or just four-tenths of an inch. Both laptops set new standards for craftsmanship, design and engineering excellence.

Adamo XPS is a stunning laptop whose design provides a unique experience. With the swipe of a finger, the keyboard appears from under the display as the system is open. The feature set challenged engineers to build the latest technology into a compact space, including:

· 4GB* DDR3 800 memory;

· Intel Core 2 Duo (1.4Ghz) ultra-low voltage processor;

· Thin 128GB SSD for faster, cooler, quieter and more durable storage than traditional hard drives;

· A 13.4-inch high-definition display.

The attention to detail is apparent in the black, jewelry box-like packaging that is as striking as the laptop itself. A tug on a cloth loop reveals the Adamo XPS and assorted accessories that accompany the system. The Adamo XPS was recently recognized as the hottest Windows 7 product by leading technology analyst Rob Enderle with Digital Trends.

Adamo, derived from the Latin word meaning “to fall in love,” is a flagship in a line of products created to disrupt the personal computing space with the combination of new design aesthetics, personalization choices and sought-after technologies.

The Adamo by Dell brand was launched last March with the first Adamo laptop, which combined high-performance technologies in a finely-machined aluminum case only .65-inch thick.

For the full hands on, head on over to Gizmodo or Endgadget…get ready to be amazed.

LG’s Transparent Display Brings You One Step Closer To Being Tony Stark

Lets face it.  We all want to be Tony Stark…and after we saw his house in Iron Man….we all wanted his amazing HUD like displays in every piece of glass we’ve ever come in contact with.

Now we’re in luck, thanks to LG:

This stunning piece of concept glory was featured at FPD 2009 in Japan, but didn’t come with much in the area of details because this is about all we know.  It is 15 inches and in full color.  Other than needing to tape a sheet of paper behind it so you can see whats actually on the screen, this thing makes our dreams of becoming Tony Stark that much closer to being a reality.
