    posted by Evelina

    psp2It has been rumored that Sony could launch the PSP 2 this june at E3.

    The popular portable gaming device is long over due for an upgrade and it looks as if it could be available for fans in the UK just in time for Christmas.

    As shown in the picture (right) the PSP v2 is much bigger and guaranteed to offer a much better gaming experience. The sleek design and large screen are key changes for this new PSP.

    Sony is set to pitch the PSP v2 against the Nintendo 3DS which will be announced at E3 as well.  Apple is also rumoured to be launching the next generation iPhone 4G or iPhone HD by the end of next month.

    So for all you tech geeks out there… June could well be the month for you.

    posted by Evelina

    skobbler-iphone-300x221Top-selling iPhone navigation app Skobbler has launched in the UK for just £1.19, giving a decent alternative to shelling out for a dedicated piece of GPS hardware.

    Having seen over 150,000 downloads in Germany, the new app comes to the UK at the £1.19 introductory price, with the normal price being quoted as £2.39.

    The app uses OpenStreetMap and relies on a community-led approach with users crowdsourcing information in order to update maps quickly. Any issues that motorists or pedestrians come across can be highlighted, making for consistently updated and, more importantly up-to-date maps.

    Features include; turn-by-turn GPS navigation, being both visual and voice guided; day and night display modes; automatic continuation after incoming calls and a handy pedestrian mode.

    The app is available on the iPhone 3G and 3GS from the App Store at the £1.19 price for a limited time only.

    Panasonic 3D TV Hits the UK

    Panasonic 3D TV Hits the UK

    Panasonic have entered the fray with this massive 50 inch flat screen P50VT20B 3D Plasma Television. Although it may not be the first 3D TV to go on sale in the UK, it is by far the most attractive of the 3D models on sale.

    The first noticeable aspect about this television is probably that it’s a plasma model. Though LCD TVs have of late gotten the upper hand on their plasma rival, the technology is not at all substandard. In fact, Panasonic point to a number of advantages with using a 3D plasma TV over a 3D LCD Television.  These include super clear images for any fast motion, improved luminance efficiency, cross talk reduction, and, evidently, better quality when viewing ordinary 2D content as well.

    Unfortunately, no discussion about 3D televisions could be complete without talking about the dreaded glasses. The P50VT20B uses active 3D goggles, which means they’ll cost a lot (in the £100 range). Fortunately two are included by default, so you won’t have to immediately purchase more like with some Samsung 3D TV models. They also look quite stylish, resembling a new pair of designer sunglasses, in contrast to some of the very dorky pairs we’ve seen through the years.

    Microsoft takes gaming battle 3D with upgrade to Xbox 360

    posted by Evelina

    Xbox+360_2524_19770172_0_0_7041218_300Video game companies have taken their fierce battle for customers into the realms of the third dimension, with Microsoft challenging Sony head-on by upgrading its Xbox 360 console to support 3D games.

    The US technology giant revealed yesterday that it had signed a strategic partnership with the electronics company LG, as it prepares to bring 3D gaming to the Xbox 360. Gamers in the UK will have to control their excitement for now, as plans seem to be limited to the Asian market at the moment. Yet experts believe the rise of 3D in other formats makes the format’s expansion more likely. The move follows recent announcements by Sony, which has upgraded its PlayStation 3 console to support 3D, and Nintendo, which is planning to release a 3D version of its popular DS  and Wii Consoles.

    Microsoft has been concentrating heavily on taking the fight to Nintendo’s extraordinarily successful Wii console, whose motion-sensor-based games have encouraged a whole new group of players into the market. This culminates in the launch of Project Natal at the E3 expo next month. Yet the group clearly believes it needs to offer an alternative to Sony, and yesterday news from South Korea emerged that the Xbox 360 will support 3D games.
