amp_egg-thumb1.jpgEaster is for the Easter Eggs and Bunnies. The AMP’s Easter Egg MP3 player adds some hi-tech to the Easter Egg as it houses an Inovix IMP-11 128MB MP3 player in it. Break the chocolate egg (made from organic milk chocolate) to find the MP3 player in it. Robed in a golden foil and gifted in a smart gold box, this Easter you can make a music-lover a very happy person.

AMP’s Easter Egg MP3 player is for £19.99 ($40). And a great idea.

Meet the Pulsar 260. A nice integration of a phone and player. The pod enables you to change track and volume without touching the phone (or other Bluetooth stereo device). When a call comes in, the music is paused automatically and you answer the call simply by pressing a button on the corded headset. It has up to 9 hours talk-time or up to 7 hours music listening time and 10-meter range and Bluetooth V2.0.

The Plantronics Pulsar 260 is $ 110. A steal, really.

moto-h680.jpgAnd the last jewel from Motorola’s — H680 Bluetooth headset, that made its debut at the CTIA. The feather-light 0.42 ounce headset comes with a charging case that is made from the same vacuum metal material and clear plastic, and can be plugged into either a wall or car charger. It has eight-hours of talk time and an eight days of standby time.

Let’s wait not for the miracle, but the third quarter of this year.

moto_maxx.jpgMotorola continues showing us some reaaly nice phones, but this one is something — MOTORAZR maxx Ve. This one comes with EV-DO high speed connectivity and a 2 megapixel camera. Also, GPS/LBS connectivity in this one and the touch sensitive controls available. Stereo Bluetooth for hearing your music wirelessly. The entire build up of the phone is slim to keep up with the MOTORAZR family of slimmers. And for me, this is a word.

We can expect this one in the first half of 2007. Yay.
