The Nokia 6131 NFC is just another sign of a growing trend for use of RFID devices. The Nokia has Near Field Communication capability where it transmits data (payments) wirelessly up to 4 centimeters away. Like Bluetooth but on a microscopic scale.
So the RFID will recognize bar codes off products in stores, sweep past a movie poster to get the trailer via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi download (RFID swipe just starts the process). Nokia teamed with Cingular and is performing beta testing in New York and Atlanta. The Nokia 6131 comes equipped with MicroSD slot, MP3 player, FM radio and 1.3mp camera. Not bad.
HaCha is one clean looking PMP player and some killer resolution too. Andrew from GearFuse stubmled upon this one and from one look GFM wanted to let our readers know. Although the 1GB version seems a littls small in capacity for it’s use the 2 & 4GB should do just about anyone.
The Chinese are among the heaviest commuters in the world, and we know that commuters just love to watch themselves some movies. The Chinese-made HaCha R280S media player features a 16 million color 2.83-inch LTPS LCD display with a clear resolution of 320 x 240. The HaCha has around 4 hour playback for video, supporting WMA and AVI files, along with WAV and MP3 files for music and JPEG images.
Measuring in at 85.5 x 55 x 9.8 mm, the HaCha is expected to be available in 1 GB, 2 GB, and 4 GB models with miniSD card support on each. Weighing in at 57.1g, the R280S is proof that good things come in small packages. Simple, sleek, and useful is how we like â€˜em.
