After success with previous products LG KP500, LG boast this phone with 5 megapixels camera with autofocus, LED lights up, and 720×480 pixels of audio video recording capability.

The KS600 features a 3 inch touchscreen WQVGA display, tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity, 50MB of memory space upgradeable via microSDHC and an accelerometer to play with. This dual-SIM device has sacrificed the 3G and WiFi connectivity options but we might get those in future versions. This expected to be launched in February 2009, but only in China, Russia, other former Soviet Union countries and of course Korea. Unfortunatelly, there's no word on exact specifications, pricing or availability at present. We hope that LG is going to release other similar models that will reach a larger audience.

LG KS660 Specifications :
  • Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • 3" WQVGA (240×400) TFT touch-screen display with feedback

HPI G-Dog Servo Robot by G-Robots



This is not Aibo, the first robo-dog released by Sony. This is HPI G-Dog Robot, tiny dog robot kit by G-Robots with measures 15 x 5.3 x 7.5 inches, that's looks like it will be lots of fun. I have no idea how they got the servo motors to move so fast! Have a look at the first video that was shot by Robot Watch and notice how quickly the servos move to certain positions. The kits looks like it is easy to assemble and the software appears to be quite powerful.

"Nine small RS304MD servos (new command TTL/ PWM system) are used for the G-Dog. The G-Dog is a high performance and reasonably-priced four-leg robot coming with Processing Unit and Motion Editor. The G-Dog comes with 9 command-type robot servos and each servo has its own command ID. More servos can be added using a hub and no complex wiring is required. Command-type Control Servo contains a built-in CPU. Since servos receive commands for speed and directions for each movement and operate according to the commands, there is less load on Processer. Built-in Temperature Sensor turns off power when servo temperature becomes too high. Servo operation characteristics can be changed according to preferred speed and torque. All the servos are calibrated and have the same performance." source

The Most Expensive Watches: Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical Watch



Do you know what is that? Absolutely not toys for your children, but that's Cabestan Winch Tourbillon Vertical Watch which design created by Vianney Halter and engineered by DMC Group’s Jean-Fran├žois Ruchonnet. The watch comes with a tiny 450 link chain and awesome looking nickel silver drums, altogether there are 1,352 separate components which are highly precisioned.

The watch itself looks rather strange yet beautiful. Though the watch looks sort of unreal, it has a graceful, scientific and luxurious feel all at the same time. However, reading time on a watch like this may prove to be rather difficult and you may need some training. Various cases are available, ranging from brushed titanium, gold and platinum, through to gold encrusted with diamonds. Two rotating drums indicate the time, while further drums show power reserves; you wind the watch using the glorious little capstans. Do you know the price of the watch ? That's very cheap for Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, only $275,000 and you could add some diamonds and platinum with a bill worth $400,000.

It has ability to stream video/music, access e-mails, internet browsing and instant messaging everywhere.

Vinit Shangle, National Sales Manager, Simmtronics Semiconductors, said: "We have kept our distribution and marketing plans at a low-profile owing to ongoing economic slowdown and increasing numbers of delayed payments and defaulter cases. At present, we do not wish to invest in branding and marketing promotions. Nevertheless, whenever market corrects, we will launch full-fledged range of Netbooks, in partnership with Intel. We expect to sell 400 units of Netbooks by end of December. The rationale behind our entry in Netbook is to get prepared for growing bandwidth and Wi-Max opportunities in India. Market is flooded with Netbooks and Notebook giants (HP, Dell, HCL and Lenovo); hence, counting on numbers will be difficult. Early positive acceptability, however, will decide the future course of action."

Presently, Simmtronics Netbook is available in three colors: red, black and white. It will be retailed from December 15, 2008 and carries a price tag of $447 (Rs 21,999).

Acer Aspire One 10-inch coming Q1 2009


Scott Lin, Acer Taiwan president said, "Acer will launch a 10-inch version of the Aspire One netbook in February or March 2009". Lin don't give more information on specifications for the larger Aspire, it will presumably offer the same Intel Atom processor as the existing model, only in a larger package and with a bigger display, adding perhaps some more RAM and a larger battery. No matter what, a 10-inch screen will provide a welcome break from all that scrolling.

As for Gateway, that brand will be used for a 13.3-inch notebook and all-in-one PCs, potentially as rivals to the ASUS Eee Top and MSI Neton. Acer have previously stated their intention to take half the netbook market in 2009.

Hopefully, we will begin to see some other features in this model, such as the inclusion of 3G support on models released here in the US, but it looks like we are going to have to wait a bit longer to get that information because no pricing or information yet.
