Allerta inPulse Watch Priced And Dated


By Chris Scott Barr

Remember that interesting BlackBerry watch that I told you about last week? Details were a bit sparse, but Allerta, the gadget’s creator, has finally released some of the more important details. The watch features a 1.3-inch full color OLED display, Bluetooth 2.0, glass lens, vibrating motor (for alerts) and a microUSB port for recharging. Firmware updates will actually be done over-the-air. Battery life is expected to be around four days.

As for which phones will work, it seems that any running BlackBerryOS 4.3 or higher will be able to install the necessary application. The device will ship in February 2010 and can be pre-ordered now for $149.

inPulse BlackBerry Accessory Could Be The Dick Tracy Watch We’ve Always Wanted


By Chris Scott Barr

Ever since Dick Tracy, people have been wanting phones on their wrist. We’ve seen various, albeit poor implementations of this very thing, but nothing that feels right. One of the biggest hurdles in crafting the perfect wrist-mounted phone is that it’s tough to cram everything you need in a tiny watch. So what if you had your regular phone, and the watch merely complemented it, and gave you easy access to core functions? That seems to be the idea behind this inPulse.

The inPulse is said to be a Bluetooth accessory for your BlackBerry. It doesn’t appear to give you control of your BlackBerry per se, but it does do something rather useful. When a new message (or perhaps phone call?) comes in, it will appear on the screen of your watch. This lets you check the message with just a quick glance to your wrist. If it’s nothing important, you can go about your business. Otherwise, you’ll pull out your phone and take the necessary actions. Honestly, if this thing could let you make phone calls, I’d say it’s the perfect accessory.

Joby Releases Gorillamobile For iPhone 3G/3GS


By Chris Scott Barr

Joby has made some of the coolest little tripods for your cameras over the past few years, and now they’re bringing it to the iPhone. Their latest offering comes in the form of a soft-touch case for your iPhone 3G/3GS. The case features a locking clip which can be used to attach a set of Joby’s famous flexible, bendable legs.

As an added bonus, the Gorillamobile for 3G/3GS also has a universal camera adapter (1/4” tripod screw). This means that your new tripod isn’t just limited to your iPhone. If you have a regular camera, it can be attached as well. If you take a lot of pics with your iPhone, then this $40 tripod might be worth the investment.

New Kindle DX Accessories Offer Screen Protection


By Shane McGlaun

You know, I think the kindle is really cool. I’d like to have one, but I am more of a sci-fi fan and I am not sure if they have any books I would like. The real reason I don’t jump up and buy a Kindle DX is that the dang thing costs $500.

For that much coin it should come pre-loaded with naked girls and at least include a cover to protect the expensive and large screen. Alas, it comes with neither of those things, but M-Edge can help you with protection for the screen. The company has announced two new protective covers for the Kindle DX called the Executive Jacket and the Platform Jacket.
