Nokia CBD vs. Apple Retina... fight!



1
Come on, you knew this post was coming. Here we have a prototype Nokia E7 and its new 4-inch, 640x360 pixel Clear Black Display pitted again the iPhone 4's 3.5-inch 960x640 pixel Retina display. To our eyes, the iPhone 4 display has a noticeable blue warmth and wasn't as vibrant or bright as the CBD. The CBD, however, did come across a bit oversatured (just look at those red "breaking news" bars), but hey, it's AMOLED. It certainly looks just as good as the Galaxy S' Super AMOLED. We'll have to see how the polarized layer on the CBD affects sunlight viewing. More on that later. Until then, play nice dear readers.

iWatch! New straps for iPod nano by Incipio



nano6g_linq_mainbanner

Hooray! Incipio has released a real case and watch strap (Ling) for iPod nano iWatch! Now we can certainly say that this new offer will be sold with a great speed.

PR managers of Incipio admit that these straps are the best. Well, we need only to know their price ... but so far we've noticed only the following message: "Incipio offers new and unique design of straps for iPod nano iWatch. They are made of advanced polymer materials and are quite comfortable in use ...".

Thus, we can only hope that their price won't be pretty high for those users who are ready to buy one of them.

Or are these the guidelines for Emergency calls while using VoIP? Here is one more Photoshop error (do you see the picture?)
