SysOnChip has released a new combo add-on solution for Pocket PC owners.The SysOn CF Memory GPS appears to be the world’s first GPS receiver with integrated flash memory. Based on the popular SiRFStar III chipset, it will not only turn your handheld into a portable navigation device but will also provide up to 1 GB of extra storage for maps, POI databases, etc.The solution should work on any CompactFlash-enabled Pocket PC device, except for the Dell Axim X51v (don’t ask me why – I don’t know the answer, unfortunately). It is available with 256 MB, 512 MB or 1 GB of inbuilt flash.The 1 GB version is offered for $219 at Amazon.com.” Thanks to pdalive for this one.
“If you’re not one of those people that camped out for days leading up to November 17th (or if you didn’t unload your life savings on eBay), there’s a good chance that you are not a proud owner of the awe-inspiring PlayStation 3. For this reason, you can’t exactly make use of the PlayStation Network that would let you download legitimate PSone games to your PSP via the PS3.Fret not, retro game enthusiasts, because the homebrew community is just as enthusiastic as you are about Twisted Metal. They’ve come up with an easy way to get PSX games to run on Sony’s handheld. As with most emulators, this latest solution isn’t without its glitches. Sure, it’ll play most games without too many hiccups, but the intro movie in Final Fantasy 7, for example, won’t play properly.Moreover, the L2 and R2 buttons don’t seem to be mapped correctly all the time. Still, it’s gotta be worth a shot. Check out the PSP1 Alpha 1 Playstation One Emulator for PSP here.” via mobilemag.com
“The E62 is close in design to the Nokia E61 that’s sold in Europe, but with a few key differences. The E61 has support for the European 3G networks, while the E62 does not support any 3G. The E61 has Wi-Fi, while the E62 doesn’t. On the brighter side, the E62 dispenses with the proprietary Nokia “Pop Port” for audio and USB, substituting standard mini-USB and 2.5mm audio connectors. Otherwise, the devices are identical in design and specs.On a side note, this review departs from my usual format a bit. Instead of providing detailed discussion of every one of the device’s specs, I’ll be highlighting only the most important elements, leaving the rest of the details in the spec sheet, and thus saving me from having to find yet another new way of saying “this device uses flash memory.” Read more here:
“We have spoken much about Sony Ericsson’s prowess in the field of Bluetooth-accessories development – reviews on some gadgets, including headsets have kept on popping up on our portal. However there is another type of devices, which media centers belong to in particular– these are mediums allowing for wireless communication between a handset and a TV set or home stereo. The article devoted to SE MMV-100 has long since been on our site, today we are getting to know closer its successor – the MMV-200. Though this time, it is no ordinary review – we would rather call it a “look-see” of its major features and conclusion on its viability on the market (or, frankly speaking, this type of gadgets on the whole).” Read more here:
