Wireless and clear in sound output, these are known to isolate all the sound around so that you can enjoy a perfectly clear sound output, wirelessly. Support wireless protocols like A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP. With a support for operating frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz, the headphones also promise high fidelity sound and a playtime of 17 hours before the next charge. This one’s called the DR-BT50.

retrokeyboard.jpgJust look at this neat and old but glossy retro usb keyboard. It is not for sale (yet?) and is exclusive and one of a kind, but I personally know a bunch of retro-computer geeks who’d pay any amount of money just to have this device

cute01.jpgA5525SA by Sanyo is quite sweet candy phone. The clamshell is available in pink, yellow and blue colors.

It is preloaded with girlie programs like secret diary and a journal for keeping writing day to day events along with photographs. The phone features a 2.4 inch (240 x 320 pixel) internal display supporting 260k colors, 1 inch external color display, 30 MB internal memory, 1.3 Megapixel camera and a Micro SD card for memory expansion. And it is splashproof.

However the most interesting features is the Crime buzzer - all the girl has to do is pull a knob on the phone which activates a loud crime prevention buzzer! It is sure enough to scare the stalker or any pervert person. Simultaneously a Voice Call or Video Call will be automatically sent to the specified recipient of the child along with the child’s location information using the GPS. Nice job and good looking too.

elle-no3-4.jpgElle N??3 Glamphone from Alcatel is available in number of colors. This slick slider comes in orange, pink, purple, white and yellow-green. It has a 1.3 megapixel camera, color screen and MP3 player. Accompanied with necklace with a steel charm to keep your Bluetooth headset safe, the set makes a pretty picture. Nice try, especially after the Elle phone #1, which was a total failure, as to me.

oheocha.jpgThey are already here. These are O’hEocha speakers that resembles a three-legged alien for the first chapter of legendary UFO game. Created by former BMW designer, Aonghus O’hEocha, the O’hEocha Audiophile’s Speakers were designed and manufactured in western Ireland. Each speaker is isobaric, minutely hand crafted to provide sound quality of 200 watt ratings. They are claimed to provide the clearest three-dimensional soundstage performance. For your information,three legs of each speaker tape the speaker to a pinpoint to minimize any resonance transfer. Welcome to Earth, guys!

toshiba-e01-head.jpgToshiba’s new RG4-E01 Smartphone, featuring HSDPA, a 65k color screen, 2 megapixel camera, and Bluetooth with A2DP. And it really doesn’t look like standart Wondows Mobile Device.
