With the proliferation of netbooks, iPads, UMPCs, tablets and other small fry, the need for some expansion when you're back on base, is paramount.
A DVD drive would be highly desirable, a hard drive probably even more so for the low-capacity SSD netbooks and a few more USB ports are always welcome.
Enter the Apricorn Aegis NetDock 3 in 1 USB Docking Station.
This one features 500GB of storage, a dual layer DVD burner and 4-port USB Hub in a very desirable, good looking package.
We hope to get one in for review so stay tuned!

Read more: Datalogic ELF - introduction of a professional PDAWe bring you today a first presentation on a new device, which we didn’t have physical access to yet, but feel that this info should be shared with our readers. We are trying to get a sample unit to publish a proper review.

Google Maps update - with Voice Search

Written by Vasco Miguel on . Posted in Industry News

Read more: Google Maps update - with Voice SearchGoogle Maps for Windows Mobile just got updated to version 4.1.0. This version includes now the capability to perform voice activated searches. Just need to press Talk button and say what you're looking.

But not everything is great... for now, it only recognizes English, including several accents as Australian, Indian, British, etc, and Mandarim. In my personal case, in Portugal, if I ask for "restaurantes" it searches for "chris nolan". But if I say "restaurants", all is well.

In case you're wondering: "Falar agora" means "Speak now".
