Fluid lenses to redefine inexpensive mobile cameras
Phillips has made practical a whole new level of fluid lens technology that will likely make its way into mobile device cameras. The technology works along similar principles to the human eye, literally altering the shape of the lens in order to focus. In addition to being compact, rugged, and effective, it consumes almost no battery power and focuses from 2 inches to infinity.http://www.philips.com/InformationCenter/Global/FNewPressRelease.asp?lArticleId=3066&lNodeId=13
PalmGear lists Tungsten|E2
The rumors about an impending Tungsten|E2 just got a big boost. When you buy a Palm OS application from PalmGear’s online store, they ask you what device you intend to use the application on. Temporarily available earlier today as an option, smack dab in the middle of the PalmOne models, was “PalmOne: Tungsten|E2”. The listing also appeared on the store that PalmGear maintains for PalmSource. Since the name was first noticed, PG has removed it from the list, but has apparently made no significant effort to explain the incident.
