I’m not a big fan of headsets, but the Nokia J Bluetooth Headset sure looks good. Besides the shiny, curved, stainless steel housing it sports a clip to carry it in (yeah, wearing a headset all the time just to look like you’re expecting important calls isn’t impressing anyone) which automatically turns the headset on/off when used to preserve battery time. Also, you get DSP noise reduction, automatic echo cancellation (AEC), automatic volume control that adjusts to your surroundings and two sets of small, medium and large earpieces. As for the battery you get up to 3 months of standby time and 5 hours of talk time.
The Nokia J is compatible with any phone supporting Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, Headset Profile 1.1 and Handsfree Profile (HFP) 1.5.
Want your iPhone to stand out from the crowd or just give it a bit more back-to-nature look? Check out these wooden iPhone skins by Karvt. These hand-made skins are made of real wood (alder, bamboo, cedar, cherry, hickory, oak, pine.. you name it) which makes each skin unique due to the wood grain and texture. You get both front and back skins for the iPhone 4 but only front skin for the iPhone 3 due to the curved back.
Give your iPhone 4 a retro touch with this genius decal, quickly transforming your phone to a Rainbow OneStep Polaroid Land camera. The sticker is cheap, easy to apply, won’t leave any residue when removed and looks great. What more can you ask for?

Granted, showing your device fixed up close with hands and fingers walking you through the features, all against a bright white background might just be the most logical way to show what your device got, but Bell’s new ad for Palm Predoes feel a bit inspired by Apple’s iPod / iPhone ads, doesn’t it? Just a tiny bit? Anyway, the device and interface still looks good.

Samsung introduced the eco-friendly Blue Earth phone at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona. It’s the first full touch-screen phone to be able to run on solar power and besides efficient energy usage and eco-friendly packaging it’s made of PCM, a recycled plastic material extracted from water bottles, helping to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions in the manufacturing process.
A built-in pedometer allows the user to keep track of how much CO2 emissions earth has been spent by walking instead of motor transport.
Okay, how could I not mention the iPhone 3G today? If you’re one of those who haven’t been constantly refreshing Mac-related websites today I could just mention that as of July 11 you’ll be able to buy an 8GB iPhone for $199 ($300 for the 16GB model) and it’ll feature real GPS, 3G (about three times the speed of EDGE) as well as better battery life (300 hours standby, 10 hours talking in 2G, half in 3G, 5-6 hours browsing, 7 hours of video watching or 24 hours of music).
Here’s Omnia i900, Samsung’s answer to the 3G iPhone. This HSDPA-enabled device sports a 12.5mm waist, a 3.2" touch-screen and comes in two models; one with 16GB and one with 8GB of internal storage. Add up-to-16GB of SD storage to that and you can walk around with 32GB of media in your pocket.
It runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and among the other features we find GPS, a 5 megapixel camera with geo-tagging and image stabilizer, DivX and XviD movie support, USB 2.0, WiFi, FM-radio and both Internet Explorer and Opera for web browsing.
