This Week in Gadgets
This week we highlight the news from Microsoft along with some other cool technology that caught our eye.
Seven Phones for the Seventh Operating System
Okay, so it’s actually more than seven phones that were announced at the Windows Phone 7 launch held on Columbus Day in New York City and we're also not sure if this is really the seventh mobile OS (there have been so many) but it's nice to see Microsoft get back in the game. The official launch date for the U.S. is November 8th. There were no major surprises at the announcement other than the sheer number of phones announced. Journalists and analysts appear to be remain cautiously optimistic with praise for the innovative UI along with some healthy skepticism over Microsoft’s chances of gaining much market share from Android and Apple.

Canon PowerShot G Series
is 10 Years Old

The Canon PowerShot G series began life as the G1 about 10 years ago. It was a 3.3 MP camera that users raved about. Fast forward 10 years and we’re looking at the G12 a 10 MP compact camera with a 5x optical zoom that shoots 720p videos. Camera enthusiasts say it comes close to a DSLR experience. The PowerShot G12 costs around $500.
A Lexus Hybrid that Sips Gas
We don’t ordinarily cover cars but occasionally a car grabs our attention for its techie factor. If you’ve driven a Prius we sure you’d agree although it’s a great car it’s no Lexus and if you’ve ever owned a Lexus we’re sure you’d agree it’s not the most gas-friendly car around. The 2011 Lexus CT 200h (hybrid) might change all that. While not a car for the performance-minded, word is, you can get 42 mpg from this bamboo-appointed, eco-friendly luxury sedan.
AT&T Satellite Phone Gets Great Reception
Remember Iridium, a network of LEOS or Low Earth Orbit Satellites that was supposed to make satellite phones cheap and easy to use? Well Iridium, despite some high profile investors like Bill Gates, didn’t fare all that well. AT&T is now selling a hybrid satellite phone called the TerreStar Genus for $799. You should be able to call virtually anywhere in the United States and territorial waters for $25 a month and 65 cents a minute. Data goes for $5 a megabyte.
