Wibrain B1E Review: Flexible Navigation

Wibrain B1E
The computer is being small and smaller. After notebook, than comes the netbook (new name of small notebook/laptop) like Asus Eee PC or Classmate PC. Latter also emerges mini model in tablet form or module with shift keyboard which taking idea from PDA. So, this Wibrain UMPC is unique enough because its form more looks like portable console like GameBoy or PSP.

Wibrain B1E basically like the other UMPC which packaged computer in handy form so can be inserted into pants pocket. Wibrain cut the keyboard area becomes 2 parts. Remind us at Nokia N-gage phone. That layout makes user must get used to typing with 2 thumbs. To economize dimension, Wibrain perforce to locate small character button, so do the touchpad area in right side felt less balmy. Fortunately access to gadget still made easy with touch screen which sensitive when receives finger or stylus touch provided.

To execute various applications, Wibrain B1E is powered by VIA 1,2GHz processor (ULV - ultra low voltage). But during usage, this processor spreads the temperature that is felt enough on-hand. Fortunately, UMPC will turn of automatically when temperature exit canal experiences resistance so that make device safe from over temperature. Besides processor, tiny UMPC cooling system likely must always corrected by manufacturer so that more maximum.

With mini 1,8" harddisk with 30GB capacities plus DDR2 512MB RAM (available 1GB version), Wibrain clearly equivalent with Asus Eee or other Classmate PC. But Wibrain internal connectivity is not as complete both peripherals because only provides audio and a USB port connection. This happen of course because space boundary at gadget which only have ½ kg weight. To support more connectivity, Wibrain also provides additional docking which must be bought separately.

HTC Touch Cruise Review: Integrated GPS

HTC Touch Cruise
Need to be noted that this device do not apply SiRFstar III chip which usually used by most GPS device; this device only uses GPS chipset which integrated in processor. But position accuracy in the map application remains provable. Besides map application, in this device there are QuickGPS, what quickens determination time of GPS position with satellite data which downloaded via internet. We also can strengthen GPS signal capture with installing additional antenna in GPS port at rear of body. Of course this antenna is accessories which do not included in the package.

Not like its two younger brothers which have cute looks, this one looks so solid; reminds us at Dopod P800W. It is possible that this similarity because both device still having family relation. Moreover, all devices are equipped by GPS. As a whole, the appearance felt "smoothly" because the buttons is made flat like the casing. The example is the plate below the screen which loading 4 button. Besides the ordinary Call and End Call button, there is GPS and Internet Explorer shortcut button addition. Both shortcut likely is default feature because icon picture graven in iron case and we do not find setting to change the shortcut.

As member of Touch family, its touch screen is beyond question is equipped by TouchFLO. We just need to "press - scratch" the screen with thumb to operate menu that we want. The Home screen uses Live HTC Home, what provides weather information (real-time if GPRS is active), most use application (quick access to most used applications) and ringtone setting. If required, the stylus at the bottom is easy to pull swiftly.

The connectivity is can be said complete; there is Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi, and 3G. Unfortunately, Bluetooth has not supported A2DP and AVRCP. About the problem of 3G, we can use Cruise for video-call because in up right corner there are addition of VGA camera. Likely the camera is only use for video call, because we fail to finds this camera setting usage in ordinary camera mode. It’s easy to make a phone call: just push the destiny number, and then push the phone icon in virtual key pad.

Windows Mobile 6 Professional in Touch Cruise is equipped by Direct Push. Hence we can enjoy push mail, with a note that our office use Microsoft Exchange server that supporting Direct Push. The setting of mail account, including free mail account, in this device is easy enough with Auto Setup feature.

Sturdy looks usually not modish; but not be relevant at Touch Cruise. GPS plus connection option to internet will make your office works more pleasant.

Canon Ixus 80 IS Review: Stylish Ixus for Woman

Canon Ixus 80 IS
This Ixus design is made so fashionable and stylish to draws in all women user.

Its camera body color available from silver, blue, pink, chocolate, and golden. Shapes of Canon IXUS 80 IS body also rounded and oval causing strengthens the stylish impression of this camera which has 8 megapixel CMOS resolution.

Woman and adolescent generally are wishes practical and automation in photograph. One of innovation in photograph is Motion Detection Technology system which automatically boosts up sensitivity of light sensor (ISO/ASA) so camera can get higher shutter speed and can freeze object movement. But this feature active when user using camera at High ISO Auto mode.

Automation also seen from the inexistence of manual photograph feature, like full manual (M), diaphragm priority (AV), and also shutter speed priority (S). But Canon IXUS 80IS has provided various special photograph styles for various light condition and object type. User can choose Kids & Pets, Indoor, Sunset, Foliage, Snow, Beach, Fireworks, Aquarium, and Underwater scene. Moreover, Canon IXUS 80IS figure in Histogram diagrams facility which can be functioned as lighting indicator, tonal range, and detail/texture when take a picture. At least, user can directly compensated the lighting with topping out ISO or decides to use flash lamp help.

Image stabilizer system equipment that working optically at lens - not at light sensor – giving more plus feature at Canon IXUS 80IS. This system hardly helps us when trying to makes a picture with maximum zoom and also with macro system. With closest photo distance reaches 3 cm, we can record the detail/texture of beetle body excellently.

Logically, with more features activated will make photo process to become slower. We consider this thing doesn't bother at Canon IXUS 80IS. We guess this thing is because the support from DIGIC III processor which added to this camera. At best photo quality style, we note lag time between shutter button release with photo record is very small, that is around 0,5 seconds. Meanwhile, if flash lamp is activated, lag time becomes around 1 second.

Canon IXUS 80IS presents photo record with natural color quality, with accurate focus, and responsive for daily photo documentation. No manual menu of course makes it less compatibly to use for them intend to learning photography, but is compensation with many scene for various requirement.

Canon HG10 Review: Professional Class Camcorder

Canon HV20 HDV Review: Pro Handycam

Canon HV20 HDV
This handycam hardly suited for the newbie filmmaker. Various feature and quality which usually available at middle-up camcorder class presented at this handycam.

Can be said, only the lens which cannot to be detached and replace is differentiating Canon HV20 HDV from serious class camcorder. The lens with 10X optical zoom ability is equipped with image stabilizer to reduce shocking and blur of video picture record. We try the Focus Assist facility; the focus becomes more precision and responsive. The record result to detail/texture also has above average value.

When we test the handycam, we have time to ask around why its video picture color not vibrant and tends to soft-focus. In fact, 1/2,7 inch CMOS light sensor at Canon HV20 HDV is produces video picture character which "film-like".

1920 X 1080 pixels (19:6) video picture and PAL standard rotating speed (25 frame per second) what yielded no longer have the interlace character, but has applied progressive scanning system. So, this handycam records video picture of progressive scanning system into mini DV cassette which the standard using interlace scanning system.

Manual control systems also become "secret weapon" of Canon HV20 HDV. Although manual focus doesn't provide focus ring, but there is a focusing dial button which its speed can be set manually. More, there is shutter speed controller facility from 1/2-1/2000 seconds. This facility hardly helps when we try to record the video in low light condition and also fast moving subject.

Canon HV20 HDV has manual diaphragm control (iris) from f/1,8 to f/8. Wide diaphragm (small number) besides helping when recording in low light condition also gives slight depth of field to isolate object with mix of high optic zoom. While the thin diaphragm (big number) supports wide depth of field when recording landscape.

Result of video record can be transferred to computer through Firewire (IEE 1394) connection or looked on in plasma TV via HDMI connection. Canon HV20 also provides connection slot of Firewire connection, HDMI, and also Composite A/V. Moreover, Analog to Digital Passtrough connection also added at Canon HV20. This slot recognized also by the name of AV-DV input conversion, good for digitalization of analogue video. USB connection is also available to transferring photo file. If you want to save the photo into flash memory, there is available Mini SD slot.

We impressed with the availability of various slots which supporting addition of vital equipments in film making process. Mini jack slot for headphone enables you to monitors voice input. Hotshoe accessories enable video lamp addition to help lacking of light.

Slot for microphone minijack enables you applies better addition microphone (directional or boom) so can reduces bothering voice. Although, the two built-in microphone on the top body of Canon HV20 HDV able to yield stereo voice record and can reduce wind trouble when recording in outdoor.

Canon HV20 HDV pertained as handycam which rich of professional video record feature. We dare to recommend to all newbie home based user, film maker, and videografer.

Asus U6S Review: Taft Performance

Asus U6S
Asus U6S is inversed approach from Fujitsu Lifebook P8010. If Lifebook P8010 places forward the mobility, Asus U6S is more underline the performance. That thing is seen from inside component specification. Not only because the usage of Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 processor (fastest Intel notebook processor nowadays), but also because the existence of stand alone graphic card, nVidia GeForce 8400M GS 128MB. For your info, the 12,1" class notebook usually only applies onboard graphic card.

GeForce 8400GS actually is including entry-level graphic card, but it’s already can give uppermost 3D gaming ability. Asus U6S successfully reaches great score (1068) at 3DMark 2006, far above the other notebook which using onboard graphic card (300-500).

The usage of GeForce 8400GS also enables Asus to planted HDMI facility. The existence of HDMI in 12,1" notebook which doesn’t have Blu-ray and HD-DVD feature of course questionable, however its still a feature which differentiating Asus U6S with other notebook in its class.

Besides HDMI, feature provided by U6S it’s complete enough. Wireless facility is provided by WiFi a/b/g and Bluetooth, whereas the cable connection is provided by Ethernet. To keep the data is available 120 GB harddisk, which contributed by DVD Writer peripheral. As extras feature its available 0,3MP webcam and fingerprint scan and SIM Card slot (not available for all country).

Though has great machine, this 1,6 kg notebook still try coming up 'beautiful'. This thing seen from the chocolate cover which wrapping the palm rest. The outside which having chocolate nuance also gives elegant impression, and reminds me at former Asus “leather notebook”, Asus U1. The keyboard consisted of 85 balmy buttons. Unhappily, the similar excellence is not found at touchpad and its buttons. The Touchpad felt less sensitive, whereas the button felt hard to be press.

Because its form is small, 12,1" class notebook usually is associated with standard performance and limited facility. But not Asus U6S. The performance is uppermost, and the line of facility seen equivalent (even higher) compared to 14"class notebook. Asus U6S price is around US$ 1659, which felt good match for facility given.

Fujitsu Lifebook P8010 Review: Small and Beautiful

Fujitsu Lifebook P8010
Lifebook P8010 it really an ideal partner for mobile person. Not only because the existence of UMTS slot, but also because its 1,3 kg weight (lightest 12,1 inches notebook we have tested) and its thin design (only around 3cm). Even small, all facilities are available, like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DVD Writer, card reader, until the fingerprint scanner. It’s also available Shock Detection facility which will lock the harddisk if fallen down.

But for inside component, compensation is a must. To take care of temperature and power consumption, Lifebook P8010 applies Intel LV (Low Voltage) SL7100 mobile processor (2GHz). This processor is 60% smaller compared to Intel Low Voltage notebook processor generation before all, so that more power economically and generates minim temperature.

The processor choice of course assists to lengthens the battery duration, seen from its endurance when play on High Definition film continuously during 2,5 hours. But this processor is less suited for heavy-weight computing, so that lag enough when pass the test of video encoding or 3DMark 2006. Lifebook P8010 is designed for standard computing activity like office works and internet browsing.

About the Internet access, we get no difficulty to connect to Internet applies cellular network. After installing SIM card behind the battery - is meaning you must take off the battery before installing it - Lifebook P8010 direct recognizes the card and we just need to enter SIM card setting to access Internet through 3G Watcher application.

Internet access speed can be higher if you stayed in good signal coverage because Lifebook P8010 supports access level until HSDPA (3,5G).

If till now your back felt stiff because has to bring the notebook all day long, Fujitsu Lifebook P8010 is your savior. With 1,3kg weight, this notebook has light weight, even if it is compared to other 12,1” class notebook. And differs from small computing product like UMPC or personal digital assistant, this notebook has more powerful computing ability, though applies Low Voltage processor class.

Sony Vaio FZ25G Review: Thin with Bright Screen

Sony Vaio FZ25G
Sony is known as the notebook with cool design, and it returns in this FZ25G series. One of important factor which making this notebook seen classy is its thin body (flimsiest part only 2,9cm at the time of closed) and the combination of silver color in external side and black in the internal side. Classy impression is also seen from circular multimedia control panel in upside of keyboard, which facilitates us to control this notebook multimedia side.

Sony Vaio FZ25G itself is 15,4" a notebook which positioned by Sony for multimedia segment. Besides the existence of control panel as we describes above, the segmentation also seen from HDMI facility which enabling us to plug in this notebook to TV (with HDMI facility) to look on High Definition format film. This notebook is also equipped with good speaker quality to play your favorite song.

But the most special multimedia ability from this notebook is its screen. Firstly sees it, we directly like the screen great feature which is so light and sharply, with accurate color.

This thing is stand-out when we implement Eizo Test program, because this notebook can show difference of black color gradation of 6% - 8% clearly; shows high contrast ratio from the screen applied by Vaio FZ25G. According to Sony, the bright screen is the effect of Clear bright High Color LCD 90 technology which also applied in its Bravia series TV.

One thing that always did by Sony at its notebook is its fully equipped software. At this notebook, line of software already installed, starts which related to DVD Creation, Video & Photo until music. Partly mentioned here is DVD Creation (to make DVD Movie), Roxio Easy Media Creator (file backup), Movie Story (video editing), Adobe Premiere Elements (video editing), and Vaio Media to share file in local network.

So many software can be ranked as plus value of FZ22G, but also able to become boomerang because fulfilling the harddisk; especially if it a boatware (loading when notebook booting). So, it’s better to choose which software that you needed.

With great screen quality, Sony Vaio FZ25G can present picture detail with finely. Its thin form and light weight (for 15,4"notebook class) increasingly adds attractiveness of this notebook. But the performance of this notebook not as good as if compared to one class notebook likes Acer Aspire 5920G. Sony Vaio FZ25G is more matched for you who placing forward the design and screen quality factor.

I-Phone : Now @ 199$ in USA

The iPhone is an Internet-enabled multimedia mobile phone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It has a multi-touch screen with virtual keyboard and buttons, but a minimal amount of hardware input. It also offers Internet services including e-mail, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity. Apple announced the iPhone on 9 January 2007.The iPhone was initially introduced in the United States on 29 June 2007 and is in the process of being introduced worldwide. It was named Time magazine's Invention of the Year in 2007.



BANGALORE:

Vodafone and Airtel started pre-registering customers for the iPhone 3G this week, and ever since, offices and blogs have been abuzz with discussions on what Apple’s much-awaited product will be priced at. Many think it will be just a shade over Rs 8,000 — the rupee equivalent of the price in the US, which is $199. Now, that’s a fantastic price for the 8GB product, and will certainly have every competitor worried. Nokia’s 8GB N95 smartphone , for instance, is priced at well over Rs 25,000, and its new N96 is expected to come at over Rs 36,000. But we think the iPhone, expected to hit the Indian market in September, will be priced substantially higher than Rs 8,000. The $199 price is a hugely subsidised one, subsidised by the US operator AT&T. Market researcher iSuppli has just estimated that mobile phone service providers are subsidising each handset to the extent of $300
