Philips Xenium X830

Philips has finally unveiled two official photos of the Xenium X830 along with some specification. The handset was introduced back in June, this year.

The candy bar phone is said to keep up to the standards set by Philips and offers a amazing battery life, providing a talktime of up to 10 hours and standby time of up to 1.5 months. The handset features 3-inch TFT touchscreen display with 320 x 240 pixels resolution and 262k colors. The dimensions of the phone are 105mm x 53mm x 15.5mm and it weighs 120 grams.

The handset has a 5MP auto focus camera. It looks like users will experience ultimate entertainment with the music and video players and RDS FM-radio. The device comes with an internal memory of 47MB and supports a microSDHC card slot up to 8GB.

The handset also incorporates a mini USB port and stereo Bluetooth. It supports quad-band GSM connectivity with GPRS and EDGE. On the flip-side, the handset apparently does not offer Wi-Fi, GPS and 3G capabilities.

The pricing and the availability details are not yet revealed.

LG Announced Stylish XF1 500GB Multimedia Hard Drive

by on Jul.20, 2009, under Gadgets, Technology

Looking for an external hard drive with a flashy color-shifting case, reasonably stout multimedia credentials, and a website with an outrageously long flash intro?

Look no further than LG’s XF1, a 500GB machine with a USB interface and HDMI output to stream some high-def content straight to your set, but at a maximum of 1080i. The new LG XF1 is the company’s first multimedia HDD that plays high def content from AVI, Xvid, and MPEGs 1, 2, and 4 files directly onto your TV set in 1080i quality.

LG XF1 500GB

Available with smooth curves and gorgeous gloss-black finish, LG FX1 is not much of a Mac lover as it packs a codec decoder that only reads FAT32 and NTFS exclusively. The devices features on-onboard touch-sensitive buttons for navigation (say bye bye to the remote) and for connectivity it also comes packed with a composite AV output and a mini-USB jack.

Although it’s a damn pleasing addition – aesthetically speaking, the new LG XF1 lacks H.264, WMV and MKV support and misses out on a few features that would’ve turned it into a hot seller. Let’s hope LG can do a bit better next time.

No news regarding the price or release date as of now!
