asus-aura-concept-sm.jpg So, everyone who waited the Apple iPhone and wondered if there can be a better phone, than here is something. Asus shown the brilliant Aura phone concept which is slimmer than the slimmest and the slickest one around. The phone has a frontal adorned by a fantastic 3.9 inch LCD screen that surfaces the entire phone. A touchscreen, yes!

That’s not all; the 97×49×6mm frame also accommodates a 2 megapixel shooter, a QWERTY keyboard that is ridiculously slender and a microSD card slot. as far as network and connectivity specs are concerned, there’s a lot to smile about as it provides support for GSM, HSPDA, UMTS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The second really nice try after the LG Prada KE850 in challenging the iPhone.

The entire setup consists of a dock and an adapter that helps in recording of video to various external media. It can transfer media to both SD and MMC cards. It provides with the capability of recording media from various sources like DVD players, TV sets, camcorders, etc. Time intervals can be set to each recording so that you can regulate your record time and memory consumed. These intervals range from 30, 60, 120, or 180 minutes. It is also possible to synch the device with a PC or a Mac. With all these capabilities, we can say that here’s another well thought of accessory to the ever flexible iPod.

No idea how much the iLuv i182 will cost.
It’ll be availible in March for $229.99, thanks for the comment.

iviewpvp.jpg The transition from people using portable DVD players to playing video from portable devices is in full force right now. While those portable DVD players were great while they lasted, they suffered from the same problem portable CD and tape players suffered from: the CD or tape. The Sakar iView is solving the problem of video through the solution of the iPod. You just plug your iPod into the dock, and it both plays your videos on it 7″ screen and charges your iPod. Suppose that you don’t want to limit it to your iPod, you can always use its audio and video inputs to play other content. So you probably already have an iPod, just pay $150 for the iView, buy a few videos from iTunes, and you are set you go for that cross-country road trip.
