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 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.

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.
