The BlackBerry Torch sales packaging is small, and as always for BlackBerry, it is matte black. As soon as we open the packaging, the BlackBerry Torch Smartphone is found in a special cut-away. The new BlackBerry Smartphone has a very sleek design. We find about four buttons and an optical joystick underneath the touchscreen. When we slide the phone open, we also see a QWERTY-keyboard next to the touchscreen. This keyboard is comparable to that of the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and it is a bit sunken down. The back of the BlackBerry Smartphone is completely black with a logo, and on top, the lens with flash is found. The sales packaging also contains a data cable, a headset, a charger, a small CD with software and the instruction booklets.
Canon PowerShot S95 digital camera review : Last year, Canon launched the PowerShot S90, a digital camera that represented a new road in Canon’s strategy. A camera which did not have Megapixels as its most important feature, and was even downgraded on paper in terms of hard specifications, but at the same time was advanced in image quality. It was a camera that was received wholeheartedly and was highly praised. The Canon PowerShot S95, successor to the S90, follows the same road that Canon took with the S90. Luckily, the amount of pixels is still the same, ten Megapixels, and the size of the sensor has also remained unchanged. It is a compact camera that again focuses on image quality, which is a good development.
Samsung NX100 digital camera review - The new Samsung NX100 is a new comer in the popular segment of system cameras. This is a collective term for a group of cameras from different manufacturers but with a common denominator: the lack of a mirror. It is a so-called ‘mirror-less’ system, or as Samsung prefers, a compact system camera. The Samsung NX100 is a remarkably designed camera with relatively small dimensions and an average low weight. Although the true innovation is not found inside the camera, but rather in the lens. Samsung introduces the i-Fn lens with the Samsung NX100. The Samsung NX100 is available in different colors (varies per region). The body’s material feels a bit slippery, but due to the design it is fairly stable to handle.
The Samsung Wave is presented in a hard packaging with a picture of the phone itself on it. As soon as you open the packaging, you see the Samsung Wave S5800. The phone looks neat at first glance. The front is sleek with a set of three keys on the bottom, of which two (to dial and to hang up) have been neatly integrated into the design. The back is completely sleek with a blue/grey tint. Besides the Samsung Wave, the packaging also includes a charger, a data cable, a head set, an instructions manual and a software CD. It is a good first impression of a Smartphone that is comfortable to handle and has a convenient format.
The Samsung TL500 camera is designed for the serious digital photographer. A advanced digital photographer looking for an easy-to-carry digital compact camera. The technical specifications of the Samsung TL500 digital camera are really interesting. Not only the 24mm F1.8 Schneider Kreuznach ultra-wide zoom lens is making a difference, the 3-inch AMOLED display with swiveling function are also details that will make a photographer curious. Direct competition is to be expected from the Canon PowerShot G12, Panasonic Lumix LX5 and the Nikon Coolpix P7000. The high-quality 1/1.7-inch format image sensor with a resolution of 10 Megapixels is also a typical feature of an advanced digital camera.
