Motorola's P790 gives your phone a charge

Motorola's P970 charger contains a battery that holds two full charges for a Motorola handset.

Motorola's latest cell-phone accessory will end the search for an electrical outlet to recharge your phone -- at least for a while.

The P790 portable charger has a 1,700mAh battery that can hold up to two full battery charges for a Motorola mobile phone, or up to 10 charges for a Bluetooth headset, the company said at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore. Shaped like a miniature version of the company's Pebl handset, the charger comes in a range of colors, including pink and green.

Designed to extend battery life for additional talk time or multimedia features, the P790 plugs into the Mini USB port on a Motorola handset or Bluetooth headset. The charger, which measures 74 millimeters long and weighs 79 grams, will be available during the third quarter. Pricing was not disclosed.

The colorful charger was just one among a range of Motorola announcements at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore that emphasized the importance of color.

Encouraged by the success of the pink Razr handset, Motorola is expanding its color palette to include green, blue, purple and orange, also called "pumpkin" by company executives. It is also selling a gold-colored Razr under a co-branding deal with fashion label Dolce & Gabbana (D&G).

CommunicAsia runs through June 23.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
