The Lapara Mini Bluetooth keyboard has come out the right time when all Smartphones are ditching the traditional keyboards and placing a virtual keyboard as a substitute.

The much awaited Motorola Droid X a.k.a Droid 2 is outed and ready for review and other formal announcements about pricing and availability. The android 2.1 powered Droid X will be carried by Verizon like its earlier version. Coming to the package, the Droid X is undoubtedly one of the best Android Smartphone to have in already competitive field with the advent of iPhone 4 and EVO 4G.

Worth Reading: What Will You Prefer iPhone4 or HTC EVO 4G ?

A lot of similarities exist between the earlier droid and this Smartphone but there are lots of good features it has packed additionally within a year that needs a mention. The Smartphone features a 4.4-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution capacitive screen which again is “OK” if you overlook the ordinary screen resolution.

Motorola Droid X

Droid 2

The new Droid gets some serious attention on improving its multimedia features. The phone has got a new  Blockbuster application, DLNA type app, separate HDMI dock and is loaded with a new MotoBlur kind of skin which helps you shift between various multimedia channels.

The 8-megapixel camera records video at 720p which again is a disappointment to me as HD video recording would correctly befit the big android Smartphone. Finally Droid gets the much needed multi-touch virtual keyboard and it preloads Swype when the keyboard is triggered for action.

Motorola Droid X  got a competitive processor this time around. With 1GHz ARMv7 processor sitting at its heart you must expect a snappy performance. The memory option is just 8GB and that again is a kind of a less in my opinion. The Smartphone also has kind of battery management software to keep your Droid running for long hours before the need to pack juice reappears.

Droid X Review Summary

Overall the new Droid packs a punch in few areas like multimedia and performance but suffers badly when coming to screen resolution and video recording when compared to its competitors. Motorola Droid X would be great competitor to Evo 4G head on but it being the gadget of the year like the one last is a big doubt.

Official announcement of the Droid X

The Droid  will be officially announced on June 23rd and invitations have already sent out. The meeting will be addressed by Google, Adobe, Motorola and Verizon Wireless representatives.

Pricing and Availability

The Verizon Motorola Droid X will be available from July 19th in America and possible pre-orders would start a week ahead of the date.

For the rest of the details regrading the pricing availability in other parts of the world and more about the phone we need to wait for the BIG DAY 23rd of June to arrive.

We will let you know the updates if something special falls into our hear about this cool Droid 2 Android spectacle. Do check the big gallery of Droid X pics at engadget.

The floating rumor that Apple will be selling SIM-Free iPhones has now been confirmed. Apple is selling fully unlocked and SIM-free iPhone 4 in its UK stores. This is great news, indeed, for all of us awaiting the iPhone 4.

How is this Good News?

For most countries including India and US, Apple has only been selling iPhones which are locked to a particular career like Airtel or AT&T. Hence, we were forced to remain tied to that career for the remaining period of the contract if we wished to try the iPhone. Software hacks had earlier made it possible to use some of the iPhones with other careers worldwide but now it seems we can skip all that trouble.

The SIM-free iPhone is contract-less so it can be used with any GSM provider worldwide no matter which country you purchased it in. Yes, I’ve been considering the idea of getting one imported too! :)

Also Read:

What is the Price?

Here are the prices of the iPhones available in the UK Store

  • iPhone 3GS 8GB – £419 – Rs. 28,900
  • iPhone 4 16GB – £499 – Rs. 34,400
  • iPhone 4 32GB – £599 – Rs. 41,300

The prices seem very attractive and actually are cheaper than the so called subsidised prices here in India.

I hope Apple strikes some proper deals with the Indian providers when the iPhone 4 arrives in India. Till then you can rely on your friends abroad.

Apple also answered a few other questions that might have come up in your mind. Here they are:

  • Does iPhone work with any SIM card or carrier worldwide?

    iPhone 3GS works with SIM cards and iPhone 4 works with micro-SIM cards from compatible carriers, including prepaid cards. Non-GSM carrier networks do not support iPhone. Availability of 3G data depends on carrier support for the radio frequencies used by iPhone.

  • Do I need to commit to a long-term contract for my iPhone?

    Buying a SIM-free iPhone from the Apple Online Store allows you choose your own carrier and change carriers at any time. iPhone may also be available at a reduced initial price with a contract directly from your wireless carrier.

  • Can I use my iPhone outside my home country?

    Yes. iPhone is enabled to work on carrier networks using GSM around the world. Because the iPhone sold by the Apple Online Store is SIM-free, you can purchase a SIM or micro-SIM card and service from a local carrier at your destination. Or check with your home carrier regarding international roaming charges.

  • If I buy iPhone from this Apple Online Store, can I ship it to another country?

    No. Orders placed through this Apple Online Store can be shipped only within the country of purchase. You can also shop for friends and family in countries where iPhone is sold. Just visit the local store of the country where you want your products delivered. Or for fast, easy ordering and expert advice, just call an Apple Online Store specialist at 0800 048 0408.

The phone will run on Google android 2.1 when bought and can be updated to higher versions later. The other noteworthy feature of this device is the 8 megapixel auto-focus camera with flash and HD video recording.

The battery life is good enough to play full length movies on the projector, thanks to its 1,800mAH battery. Phone buyers will have 4 memory storage options to buy from which includes 4Gb, 2Gb, 1Gb or 16Gb.

The projector phone is destined to hit Singapore this July and should be in select European and Asian markets in a quick time thereafter.

Few days back I shared with you a cool Gaming keyboard from Logitech. But I don’t think that for a game lover only keyboard is enough, a combination of gaming mouse will be a true fun. Thus, here is the review of gaming mouse from Logitech it is “MX518 Optical Gaming Mouse”.

Logitech mx158

MX518 have all the features which you want to play games and which you won’t get in ordinary mouse. With 1800 dpi optical engine it gives you perfect precision. The two sensitivity levels let you shift easily from targeting points. A low-friction feet and comfortable grip makes your gaming experience better.

mx518

Few features of Logitech MX158 are:

  • 1800 dpi optical engine
  • 5.8 megapixel/second image processing
  • Sculpted comfort grip
  • Low friction feet to slide easily
  • In-game sensitivity switching
  • Eight programmable buttons
  • Advanced software with up to five custom sensitivity settings
  • Can be used with Windows versions only
  • 3 years warranty

The sad part is that this gaming mouse is only compatible with windows, so if you are using any other OS you have to find any other option. With Logitech MX158 kit, you will be getting a USB, adaptor and a Software CD which you can use to change your mouse settings and sensitivity settings.

If you want a perfect gaming experience then I would suggest you to use this gaming mouse rather than using ordinary mouse.

What you think about Logitech MX518 optical gaming mouse, is it worth purchasing?

There are many gadgets for listening to music like iPod, mobile phones and many more. But some times it’s just fun to have small MP3 to listen music anywhere. Even if you like to have a MP3 then Samsung YP-U4 is a right option.
