A gizmo review

By September 18, 2007

Today, we review what's trendy on the web magazine of our great contributor Ubergizmo.com- dedicated to consumer electronics news and reviews. Enjoy! AT&T readies Moto Q Global Also known as the Motorola Q with integrated

GPS, the Moto Q Global is an extremely slim device filled to the brim with features, where built-in GPS navigation is one of the main highlights. Without a shadow of doubt, AT&T will lock this feature for 3rd party applications while making it available only through TeleNav in order to milk a few extra dollars from you. Other features of this 3G-enabled Moto Q Global include a QWERTY keyboard, a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a microSDHC memory card slot (imagine carry up to 32GB of additional data with you!). No word on pricing, but it should be available pretty soon from the folks at AT&T.

Needless to say, ASCII art is an offshoot and natural progression from the smiley, but I guess the Internet would not have been the same without these cute little critters floating around in emails and forums. What's your favorite smiley? :D

Will you be making the jump over from ye olde PowerPoint when this new beta is released, or is your loyalty not swayed by free software?

New Sony Ericsson concept phone

Sony Ericsson is currently working on a new concept phone which claims to revolutionize the way we use our cellphones. Already? I thought the iPhone just about did that, are folks all over the world ready for another revolution? Time will tell, but here's some skinny on it - the concept will be dubbed Konan: Beauty Renaissance 2.0. It sure as heck looks sweet, but the name sounds more bloodthirsty than anything else.
