The coolest Cell Phone of Sony Ericsson is now in the UK
According to rumors, the much-awaited sony Ericsson Xperia X1 phone will be released in the UK in October for £599.99 ($1140). FYI, the phone has a 3.2 MP camera with flash and autofocus, 3 inch touchscreen display sliding QWERTY keyboard, and an external microSD slot for expansion. Other features include FM radio, Track ID music recognition and MP3/AAC/MPEG4 player.
Microsoft has developed 216 megapixel camera. The UltraCamX collects 216 megapixels per trigger to produce 14,430 across track and 9,420 along track pixels, the largest image format available, with a sustained collection rate of three gigabits per second. The UltraCamX, a large Format Digital Aerial Camera, uses CCD technology, employing 7.2 micrometer pixels thus achieving an even larger image format at 14,430 x 9,420 pixels without sacrificing radiometric performance.
Vexcel Imaging GmbH, a Microsoft® company, has signed a purchase agreement with Aerodata International Surveys, a Belgian-based airborne surveying and mapping company - for an UltraCamX (UCX) large format digital aerial camera system.
“Aerodata is a long standing UltraCam customer and has significant experience operating the camera,” said Rob Agee, Microsoft Group Business Manager for the Vexcel Imaging GmbH business. “The company understands the clear benefits provided by the UltraCam technology and the added value afforded by the advancements available through the UltraCamX. We value their commitment to providing their customers high-quality aerial imagery, quickly and economically, and congratulate them on this purchase.” For more information about UltraCamX visit vexel Imaging, a microsoft company.

Intel had a great idea too, after collaborating with Ziba Design, and came up with this 0.7 inches thick laptop having a width of 17.7 inches and a weight of 2.25 pounds (1Kg).
Again we encounter the e-ink material for an external display that would show a photo, the calendar, or your daily schedule.
The Intel Mobile Metro notebook meets the following requirements: it is modern, supports all wireless network types and the latest mobile computing capabilities.
According to Roger Kay, the president of consultancy Endpoint Technologies Associates, for this concept, Intel used high quality resistant materials such as champagne-colored magnesium and decorated it with gold accents.
In Ziba’s view, this notebook is like a jewelry.
Intel Mobile Metro has a diary-like folder attached to it via magnets, capable of wireless charging.
2. Compenion prototype is on the 2nd place because of its two OLED touch-sensitive displays from which one would be used as keyboard, while the other one as an additional display.
Felix Schhmidberger wanted it to have a slider design and to serve as a series of docking stations.
The home dock would have a projector for viewing videos, and the office would have an ergonomic keyboard for example.
The multi-touch screen would be accessed with both fingers and a senstylus.
This notebook could have many different functionalities and has a great look too but we had to put it in the same balance with the Vaio Zoom concept, and you will see why Compenion remained on this position.
1. For this beautiful glass display that becomes completely transparent when the laptop is not in use, the touch-sensitive keyboard that becomes opaque when not in use, and it’s extremely thin shell, the Vaio Zoom Holographic Concept notebook deserves the first position in top 10 coolest laptop concepts of all times.
We think that this concept is showing us how future laptops would look like, while the designer wanted to create something that satisfies the requests of people for a perfect designed notebook.
Such a system would be extremely thin, the lightest, and would look exactly like in these pictures.
Eno Setiawan designed it after he gathered the latest statistics about how people would want their laptop to look like.
