Garmin Outdoor GPS review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 13th, April 2008

As soon as you hold the Garmin GPS map 60CSx you are aware of the fact that it is a high quality product. The waterproof and shockproof housing not only feels solid but also has a perfect hand-fit. The large 1.5 inch x 2.2 inch TFT monitor stands out and is a 256 colour high resolution reflective colour monitor. With its dimensions of 2.4 x 6.1 x1.3 inches, the Garmin GPS is a tad too big to carry around in your trouser pocket.

Apple iPod Touch Review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Saturday 15th, December 2007

The 16GB Apple iPod touch came in a surprisingly compact reatail box; only inches larger than the Apple iPod touch itself. The iPod box contains a quick guide in 6 languages, Apple earplugs, a USB cable, an iPod connector with a transparent hook, a polishing cloth for cleaning the iPod and of course the iPod itself. The iPod touch comes with a fully loaded battery, so it is not necessary to charge the battery before using the iPod touch. The Apple iPod touch has only one dedicated button at its disposal, just as the iPhone, with one function to return to the main menu or in case screen deactivation is on, to activate the screen of the Apple iPod in combination with a sliding movement on the touch screen.

Porsche Mobile Phone Preview

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Wednesday 17th, October 2007

The name Porsche stands for exclusivity and stylish design. The Porsche mobile phone lives up to these standards; it is a real eye-catcher. Its weight of 140 grams does not make the P'9521 a lightweight but it makes him feel very solid. The high quality finishing is superb with materials like glass and aluminium used as a base. The tight curves with black glass and the brushed aluminium hinge provide the right finishing touch. The Porsche Design cell phone is not ultra thin but thin and compact enough with its dimensions of 91x48x18.4mm to be carried around in a trouser-pocket.

Both the traditional photographer and the camera trade, have always turned up their nose at the camera-phone. The PMA 2011 emphasizes mainly the traditional photography, albeit in a digital way. In terms of image quality, the photographer is right, while the camera cell phone is nowhere near able to come up with the same high quality that puts digital photography ahead of mobile imaging. However, when we consider the possibility of sharing, and the fact that a mobile phone is always at hand, we should not underestimate the impact of mobile imaging. Mobile photography is continuously subject to innovation, and the speed at which these technological advances take place, is at least impressive. Perhaps the PMA 2011 will adopt mobile imaging as a permanent phenomenon?
