New Paint Could Block Wi-Fi From Nosey Neighbors

New Paint Could Block Wi-Fi From Nosey Neighbors

Living in an apartment building, I can spot about twenty active Wi-Fi networks at a time. And the worst part is that they can all see me, too. While we've had RF-blocking paint to cellphone signals for some time, manufacturers have been thwarted when attempting to stop higher frequencies, lik

World's Smallest Laser Paves Way for 100 Terahertz CPUs

Technically, it's not a laser, but something called spaser. Instead of photons, it uses plasmons, a particle only 44 nanometers across. It could push CPUs' speeds to hundreds of terahertz, according to Mark Stockman, professor of physics at Georgia State:The spaser works about a thousand times fast

Jim Stansfield, an aeronautics graduate outfitted his Puch with a pair of carbon-fiber air cylind

Super Talent SSDs Boost Netbook Flash Storage To 64GB For $169

Super Talent SSDs Boost Netbook Flash Storage To 64GB For $169

Not a bad price at all on a mini-PCIe solid-state drive. These are intended for the Eee PC S101, but will work with any machine that can take mini-PCIe add-ons. As JKOnTheRun points out, these are not the blazing-est SSDs you'll find (they're rated at 90 MB/s read and 55 MB/s write), but for $

SlideScreen Android App Replaces Homescreen With Beautiful Information

SlideScreen Android App Replaces Homescreen With Beautiful Information

[HTML1] Android's stock homescreen is fine; usable, not thrilling. SlideScreen, a homescreen replacement, is a wild departure that totally changes how you use your phone. It's a mix between Zune, MotoBlur and HTC's Sense. And I just made it my default. Instead of the standard grid of icons an

Nokia N8 Official, With 12MP Camera and 720p Video Recording

Nokia N8 Official, With 12MP Camera and 720p  Video Recording

Well now, this is awkward. Only yesterday Mobile-Review was calling the N8 an unpolished turd, and now ’s gone and announced it to the world. As leaks foretold, it’s got a 12MP camera with Xenon flash, and runs Symbian^3.

It’s Nokia’s first Symbian^3 , and while initial videos and photos made it look pretty special indeed, Mobile-Review’s early look at it warranted a big, fat “do not like.” As I said yesterday, that could be because it was an early prototype—time will tell, in any case.

Other specifications of the Nokia N8 include:

  • 3.5 inch 640×360 capacitive display
  • Symbian^3 OS with Qt 4.6.2 support
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • port
  • Internal 16GB memory and microSD card for up to 32GB more memory
  • 12 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash and 720p capture capability
  • Both a FM transmitter and a FM radio
  • Integrated GPS with free Ovi Maps navigation
  • 1200 mAh NON-REPLACEABLE battery (seems a bit low for this device)
  • 5 colors in aluminum casing
  • Dimensions: 4.47 x 2.32 x 0.51 inches and 4.76 ounces

Onto the specs, and that camera has Carl Zeiss optics and the Xenon flash most Nokias are blessed with. It can record video in 720p and thanks to the HDMI output, can play footage on HDTVs.

The screen is a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, and there’s 16GB of inbuilt storage, expandable up to 48GB if you’ve got the requisite microSD memory card. As with all the next-gen Nokia handsets, free Ovi Maps is included.

The US pricing and availability hasn’t been confirmed by Nokia yet, but for now we’ve been told the pre-taxes European cost will be €370, but it’ll of course be available for free on contract. Out in the third quarter, so we’re looking at another few months at the very least. [Nokia Conversations]

UPDATE: Full list of specs here.
