Camera You Can Call With

leave a comment »

Mobile phone s equipped with small cameras aren’t anything new. But with its new gadget Samsung goes one step froward. At least when the perception of gadget is considered. Looking at SCH W880 its hard to decide, what it is – is it a camera? Or is it a phone? Well, for me, with its 3x optical zoom lens and dedicated shutter button it looks more like small, pocket-size digital camera. SCH-W880 is the second Samsung’s mobile ith 12 mpx camera (the first one was the Pixon). New gadget ot only takes pictures but also shots HD videos (30 fps) which you can play on the 3,3 AMOLED screen. Price remains unknown.

Samsung M1 Player

Samsung M1 Player

In last (I think;-) post form IFA I just wanted to show you some new multimedia pocket players – aka “iPod alternatives”. Well, I am not sure if anything now could be called iPod killer (it seems that Jobs’s toys are kill-proof ;-), but here are some new gadgets you’d consider when looking for some small music and video playing things. First we have Samsung M1 with AMOLED 3,3″ touch screen. It has an nVidia Tegra chipset (with HD capability) and a flash-based UI. It will handle MP3, AAC, MP4, OGG, WMQ, WAV, DivX and Xvid files and store from 8 to 32 GB of your stuff. Nice thing – it weights only 91 grams.

The second kiddo in town is Creative X-Fi2. Again, it has a 3-inch touchscreen and is equipped in memory from 8 to 32 GB which you could expand with the microSD card. It has FM radio, voice recorder and handles MP3, WMA (DRM9), Audible4, AAC, FLAC, WMV9, MPEG4-SP, DivX 4/5 Xvid files.
Both M1 and X-Fi2 are nice looking, ascetic in form. Congrats!

The last thing to mention here is the new player from Sandisk. Sansa Clip+ is a simple player, made to play music, period. It has 2 to 8 GB of internal flash memory and also uses microSd cards (also special slotRadio and slotMusic cards with music on them). Moreover it is equipped in FM radio and 1″ OLED screen, showing you all crucial information about tune played . And it really really tiny and with the clip You can easily put in on your jacket or bag strap.
