Pixon's Day Out

According to the reports and a press release this handset is the world’s slimmest full-touch 8-megapixel camera phone.

well features doesn't lie only in slim nature,but its many many things that make the phone among the tops.

The Pixon has a 3.2-inch WQVGA touch screen display and features that include x16 digital zoom, auto-focus, fast-shutter, face detection and geo-tagging since it comes with internal GPS. Other features include a media player that supports Samsung's DNSe for audio, an FM radio, Bluetooth with A2DP and microSD card support for external memory(internal Memory is around 200MB)

But the real highlight here is the 8-megapixel camera which is set to have wide dynamic range, face detection, advanced shake reduction and smile shot

For shooting video, the phone boasts 30fps at resolutions of 720 x 480 and 120fps in QGVA high quality recording mode.

There's no tie-up with DivX or Dolby for this model, unlike LG's baby, but it will play DivX video as well as MPEG4, WMV and XviD files.

Connectivity-wise, the Pixon is a GSM, GPRS, EDGE, quad-band phone, with HSDPA at 7.2Mbps (so the same as the Renoir).

The handset also has a dedicated website called - The Photographic Adventures of Nick

Asus Lamborghini VX3

Asus, which was recently in the news on account of its Eee PC range of small notebooks, has released an updated version of its premier Lamborghini co-branded laptop – the VX3.

In comparison to its elder brothers, the VX3 has shrunk a bit. Firstly it is now a 12.1 inch affair and hence its size reflects its reduced stature. Nothing else has changed with regard to its styling and finish. The VX3 retains the striking yellow finish that characterizes this range, and the black sports-car logo on the lid. The construction as always is solid, with absolutely no squeaks from either the body or the hinges, which are reinforced and look pretty elegant.

The inside of the laptop (keyboard area and LCD panel) have been suitably altered to reflect its new size. For one, the LCD area has been given a simple matte finish, which is a good thing as the LCD panel is ultra-reflective and a shiny finish would have exacerbated this problem. The keyboard area retains its leather finish. It's is now surrounded by a beautifully designed bezel made of magnesium alloy, and sports a gunmetal finish.

The touchpad is a good improvement over previous models. Though it’s somewhat oddly designed, it has a good smooth finish alongside recessed mouse keys that make pointer manipulation easy.

The LCD panel is a backlit 12.1 inch affair with a native resolution of 1280 x 800, but it’s not as sharp as in some other models from Asus. It offers average levels of brightness and contrast, and has poor viewing angles. On top of that it’s got a very reflective screen, which makes working in brightly-lit areas a headache.

Connectivity-wise the VX3 is quite decently loaded. It comes with HDMI, 3 USB slots, a dual layer DVD-RW, and a multi-format card reader.

Asus Eee PC 1000H

The original Eee PC was the very first 'netbook' of sorts, and its popularity opened up a whole new segment.

The 1000H signifies a significant departure from the simple finish and styling that was typical of the Eee PC range. For one, it's given up a plain matte look for a glossy black finish. While this may look elegant the first time you see it, the truth is that it’s a horrible fingerprint and dust magnet.

With a weight of 1.46 kg and dimensions of 10.5 x 7.5 x 1.0 to 1.5 inches, this is easily the largest 10" netbook available today. The build quality is sound, with no extra flex in the body, and the reinforced hinges give it the reliability most Asus products boast of.

The keyboard is easily the best seen in any Eee PC so far. It's well-proportioned at 92 percent of the size of a normal full-sized keyboard, offers a comfortable typing experience via the 'just right' texture finish of the keys, and has adequate space around the mouse pad for you to position both hands easily. This setup allows you to work comfortably and accurately.The touchpad, however, proved to be a disappointment.

Connectivity-wise, the 1000H is similar to offerings from other manufacturers. It offers 3 USB slots, a multi-slot reader, VGA out, Bluetooth (thankfully!), and a Kensington security slot. It also offers 802.11N as a bonus.

As expected, this Eee PC is based on an Intel Atom N270 processor clocked at 1.8 GHz. The device offers 1GB of RAM, and has an 80GB HDD. While the processor is a bit faster than the standard 1.6 GHz offering, it didn’t offer much more with regard to multi-tasking, which was already quite robust.The one thing that does set the 1000H apart from other netbooks is its audio capability. The 1000H comes with Dolby Sound room technology.

The 1000H we tested came with a 6-cell battery. This allowed us to make the laptop battery last well over 7 hours with prudent use, and even rough usage got around 6½ hrs.

Asus has come up with a winner. Despite its irritating glossy finish, the 1000H has extremely good performance, very good battery life, surprisingly good sound, and a well-designed keyboard only at Rs.26,000/-

Technology for Teachers..!! well done india..!!

In India,we say we lack quality education.Technology though is growing at peak rate,we still lack awareness.

But its been few months i see technology growing along with awareness in society.
and it is indeed a good news..!!

Teachers in india,always given high reputation and respect and to highlight the President Pratibha Patil launched a web portal by Friday;where,Teachers from across the country can now share their professional ideas and thoughts.

This portal www.teachersofindia.org was launched on the occasion of Teachers' Day.

"The portal will offer a platform for sharing best practices and generating discussion in teaching community," Patil said while launching the portal.

The initial phase of the portal, developed by Azim Premji Foundation with the National Knowledge Commission, envisages a space for teachers to express their ideas and share their thoughts.

"It also envisages beginning of a district-wise directory of resource organisations working in education, which will help teachers gain access to material and people in their area," said a statement issued by the president's office.

I consider this to be a step towrds unity and integrity.

lets make india the best..!!!

It's "Chrome" Time..!!

At Google, Engineers keep saying: “launch early and iterate.” While this approach is usually limited to google engineers, it apparently applies to google mailroom as well!

All of Google members spend much of time working inside a browser.So What they really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that's what googe set out to build.

Finally landed up with Chrome(Beta).Now lets sort out the featres of this browser.


Every time you open a new tab, you'll see a visual sampling of your most visited sites, most used search engines, and recently bookmarked pages and closed tabs.


Use web apps without opening your browser. Application shortcuts can directly load your favorite online apps


You can drag tabs out of the browser to create new windows, gather multiple tabs into one window or arrange your tabs however you wish -- quickly and easily.


Every tab you're using is run independently in the browser, so if one app crashes it won't take anything else down.


Don't want pages you visit to show up in your web history? Choose incognito mode for private browsing


Google Chrome warns you if you're about to visit a suspected phishing, malware or otherwise unsafe website.


Want to bookmark a web page? Just click the star icon at the left edge of the address bar and you're done.


When you switch to Google Chrome, you can pick up where you left off with all the bookmarks and passwords from your existing browser


No intrusive download manager; you see your download's status at the bottom of your current window.
