Ericsson launches new handheld

A new handheld computer has hit the market, released by Ericsson Australia and bundled with one of the company's infrared modems for seamless connectivity to the GSM cellular network.

The MC 218 runs on the EPOC operating system (developed by the Symbian group, and also used by Psion handhelds), and includes 12MB of ROM and 16MB RAM. The MC 218's 640 x 240 screen is black and white, while its keyboard includes 53 keys and is big enough for touch-typing, says the company.

Included with the $1299 handheld is Ericsson's DI 27 Infrared Modem, which enables users of Ericsson mobile phones (series 600, 700, 800, T18 and A1018), to connect to the Internet and send e-mail faxes and SMS messages.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
