Here's something we don't see everyday, a sexy voice recorder with a built-in digital camera. Samsung's YP-VP1 made its first appearance at CES, apparently, and now sees its official Korean launch. The 2GB / 4GB recorder features a directional mic that records up to 30 hours in 192kbps max quality

The SPINN is easily the sexiest device on iriver's tawdry pallet of gadget-lust. Unfortunately, we found the user experience to be a bit lacking at launch. While the feature list is long and impressive, the UI just couldn't pull it all together. Now SPINN's gone 2.0 and with it hope for the device

You read that title correctly, iriver's Spinn is apparently touchscreen (not D-Click as mentioned in the FCC leaked user manual) and features haptic feedback to boot. Now that it's officially spec'd on iriver's Korean site, we're also seeing a slightly degraded audio lifespan of 24-hours (not 27) a

Better get used to it 'cause wood emblazoned consumer electronics is a trend that's apparently here to stay. This time, it's Burl Walnut (not bamboo) on this N3 which Cowon puts up for sale in Korea on April 28th. We're not sure when deforestation become synonymous with ecological so we'll assume t

Samsung returns with the sequel to its SCH-C220 \"Miniskirt\" phone. Besides sporting a handful of new seasonal colors, \"smile shot\" super happy face tracking tech, and models swathed in bad Jersey bridesmaid's dresses, the most notable new feature on the SCH-C225/SPH-C2205/SPH-C2255 (depending upon

Korea loves 'em some 7-inch all purpose media players. Here's another, the W-700 series from their homegrown Inkel. We're talking DMB, SiRFstar III GPS with real-time TPEG traffic data, and all the media your person can set dancing on that Samsung 800 x 400 pixel display. Under the hood you'll find

While Sprint teases us with their beleaguered WiMax offering, Samsung is already shipping product for KT's and SKT's year-old WiBro service in South Korea. In fact, they've already moved onto their second generation of devices available starting today. The list includes the SPH-9200 HSDPA, WiFi, an

Meet LG's latest DAP, the UP3. That name gives a hint as to the device's objective to double-up as both a USB drive and MP3 player. Of course, the vast majority of all MP3 players already do this -- something apparently lost on LG's marketing department. The all metal UP3 shares the stylings of the

In October 2006, Sharp's 4.3-inch SP700 full-screen, touch-sensitive media player was considered quite the looker. Funny how brickley this chunker can appear just one year later at its time of release. Still, those students looking for a decent list of supported codecs -- DivX, MPEG-1/2/4, WMV7/8/9

Ok, it's only a temporary gig but check out the \"Sens e-train\" offered to Seoul's subway jockeys over the next few days. The kids at Samsung and Korea Telecoms have fitted two cars from Seoul's number 2 line train with a dozen WiBro-enabled Samsung Q45 laptops and Q1 Ultra UMPCs. The hippest trip i

Yukyung's got a new Viliv PMP navigator set for launch in S.Korea: the X2. Looking every bit like the P2 found bouncing around the US, the X2 replaces its predecessor's hard disk with either 4GB or 8GB of solid state flash while introducing SiRFstar III navigation and SD/SDHC expansion. Of course,

Meet Kobie, the cuddly Koala on what appears to be life-support. We think Babelfish translation says is best, \"it is a fondling elder brother robot of the nose Allah form which gives an emotional stability.\" Indeed. By which we assume they mean the latest in elderly care robots. This one, developed

LG looks set to loose a new 19-inch XNOTE upon Korea. The S900 series slab pictured is spec'd to go budget with a WXGA+ resolution, 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo, 256MB GeForce 8600M GS graphics, 1GB memory, 802.11 a/b/g WiFi and a total of 320GB of disk.

Damn if iriver can't build'em some sexy. Meet the D5, the Brad to the NV's Angelina. As we heard last week, the D5 is an electronic dictionary... but also so much more. At just 14.9-mm thick closed, the D5 Dicple packs a 3.0-inch, 480 x 272 pixel TFT display for all your flash and MPEG-4 video whil

The iriver NV -- as in NaVigation, initially outed as the M10 -- is now up and official. Chances are, if you're in the market for a PMP, the NV's got your needs covered. The 7-inch, 840 x 480 LED backlit LCD packs T-DMB television; SiRF III GPS; 2 SD slots (1 reserved for navigation maps presumably
