New samsung mobile doubles as digital camera

The SCH-V200, which is already on sale in Korea, features a CCD (Charge Coupled Device) image pickup on the back of the telephone handset and is capable of taking pictures at 640x480 pixels resolution. In regular mode up to 20 images can be snapped by the user while a second mode allows 26 images of lower quality to be taken. Images can be transferred to a personal computer by cable.

Samsung imagines the telephone will be a hit with young people and also useful in situations where pictures need to be taken unexpectedly, such as after a road accident.

The telephone is the latest in a line of dual device mobile handsets developed by Samsung. Previous telephones have included an MP3 player, television and internet access and the company has also developed a handset that can be worn on the wrist.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
