12/28/2009, Iqua’s BHS-603 SUN solar-powered Bluetooth headset is pretty self-explanatory – you will be able to carry out all of your conversations hands-free, with its battery offering up to 9 hours of non-stop chatting with a 200 hour standby time. Of couse, another advantage would be prolonging its in-between charge time thanks to an external solar panel which ups the juice levels by some bit each time it is exposed to […]
12/28/2009, Sprint has a third Android smartphone waiting in the wings, where chances are it will be from LG in the form of the LG LS680.

12/28/2009, The Xderia X2 cellphone is a shamless clone of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2, featuring a similar sliding mechanism as the original as well as 3″ display, although it does not run on Windows Mobile (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but of course clone manufacturers’ operating system interfaces are far worse). You get a WQVGA display which is a lower resolution compared to the Xperia X2′s WVGA, while other […]

12/28/2009, Seems as though HTC is working on the release of the Nexus One Dock in the near future, where it will come with integrated Bluetooth connectivity as well.

No idea on whether nunchuck functionality has been integrated or not, but we hope so assuming you […]
