Solar Keyboard for iPad


There are many keyboards for the iPad but none like the Solar Keyboard Folio of Logitech which is the first solar keyboard for Apple's tablet.

The keyboard has no charger. It has the right size to type and it is made of plastic.
One interesting thing about Solar Keyboard Folio is the auto activation. Just place the iPad in the special position and the keyboard activates by itself and is ready for use. It's that simple.

There is not even a USB port to charge it, but Logitech promises that a fully charged Folio will last you 2 YEARS if you use it for 2 hours/day.

It takes 6 hours for Folio to charge when you are in a room and far less than 6 if you are out in the open.

It's price: 129$

There are a few things we know about the Google tablet. It will come with a 7 inch screen, 1280 x 768, manufactured from ASUS with a Tegra 3 chip at 1.3 Ghz and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
We still don't know for sure if it will support 3G connection, but it is highly unlikely because of its very low price of 199$. This is also the reason we believe the Google tablet aka Asus Nexus 7 will only have one low resolution camera for video calls.
I guess we will just have to wait and find out. @ Google I/O 2012  27-28 June.

Kudo is trying a different approach to solar energy. The new Kudocase for iPad besides solar energy it uses the light inside a room to produce energy.

Kudocase costs 199,95 $ but it is so much more than a solar case. It has a battery to save the remaining energy, an HDMI port and a USB port for you to charge your smartphone or another device.

HTC One X


There is alot of competition between high-end smartphones the last two years with Apple and Samsung leading the race. Of course there are many others like HTC that might have setbacks before but now its back in the game with the One series (S,V,X). One X is a superphone that has got everyones attention especially since Galaxy S3 hasn't officially been released, One X doesn't have any true competitors.
HTC decided to create a high end device that is based on last generation hardware, but also concetrated on the device's design. One X is a truly beautiful superphone that will impress everyone who takes a closer look. This is a unibody device made out of polycarbonate, which is durable and easy to form. The only removable part of the phone is the micro SIM port (like iPhone) which is placed on the right part of the phone.

The unibody gives the impression that the phone is more firm and  it is a thin, quality device with very light weight. Its weight and width is smaller compared to iPhone 4/4S except for  the part where the camera on its back has a small lump. On its front there is an impressive HD 4,7 inch screen and a camera for video calls. Right next to it is a volume control, a a micro USB port that can be turned into an HDMI port using the right adaptor.

Right below the screen there are three capacitive soft keys and finally on its back next to the camera there is the loud speaker. It is worth mentioning that most of HTC's smartphones have Beats Audio quality.
