New Ion Twin Video Camcorder – Capture Two Moments Simultaneously
24 November, 2010
 Not every event happens in front of the camera, that’s why we have the sometimes more interesting behind the scenes moments. Wouldn’t it be nice if there’s also a lens focusing on those videocam totting overly eager amateurs that just poke their camera anywhere? Actually there is, the new Ion Twin Video Camcorder features the world’s first dual-lens video camera that’s capable of capturing both front and rear video and audio footage in high-quality 640 x 480, 30 fps picture resolution. For playback, it displays two separate feeds that you change to the front and rear viewpoints on the Twin Video Cam’s integrated LCD screen. The only downside is that the software does not allow a 50/50 split screen or picture-in-picture viewing but it does show what you’ve captured in real-time.

To aid in video recording, it additionally features 3x digital zoom, big and easy to use buttons, a weighted handle for steady recording and a pair of front and rear lights for low light recording. To use, simply pop in an SD card, then capture away and record a moment with your reaction and finally, load the video into a PC using the included USB connection or review scenes using the TV out ports. The new Ion Twin Video Camcorder can be connected to TV using composite video output. It is also tripod mount ready and SD card expandable. Package includes a USB cable, composite video cable, soft neoprene case, lanyard, CD installer, lithium-ion battery, quick start guide and safety instructions, and warranty information sheet.

Nokia announces entry-level C2-01 and X2-01 featurephones

22 November, 2010
Nokia unveiled a couple of new entry-level additions to its mobile phone portfolio. The Nokia C2-01 is meant to be Nokia's cheapest 3G phone, while the Nokia X2-01 has a full QWERTY keyboard as its key selling point. 

Both C2-01 and X2-01 are feature phones running on the company's proprietary Series 40 platform. The 3G radio on the Nokia C2-01 supports the 850/1900/2100 bands, but there is sadly no HSDPA. The handset packs a 2" QVGA screen, a 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a microUSB port.

Music lovers will appreciate the C2-01 standard 3.5mm audio jack and its built-in stereo FM radio with RDS. There's also a microSD card slot to help you store all your tracks.

It's other highlights include a VGA camera, 3.5mm audio jack and stereo FM radio with RDS. A microSD memory expansion slot is also present.
