The future of networking
Samsung’s new SGH-Z100 is a UMTS handset that boasts tri-band GSM connectivity, GPRS Class 8, MMS, WAP 1.2.1, and J2ME. It also comes with an integrated digital camera and camcorder, and streams audio/visual on a 20-bit TFT color display. Price to be announced.

Thinking affordable
IBM has released its new G Series of ThinkPad notebooks, featuring the G40, a reasonably priced computer designed to combine full features with mobility for those keeping a firm eye on the bottom line. Available with an impressively powerful Intel Pentium 4 processor and 3.5 hours of battery life, it’s priced at CZK 43,000.
Circle shot
Mobile phone maker Nokia has introduced a stylish new way to integrate digital images with its multimedia messaging-ready phones: the Nokia Fun Camera. Shaped like a particularly ripe raindrop, the small camera is attachable directly to Nokia phones, and can store up to 50 low-resolution or 25 high-resolution images at a time. There’s also a built-in flash for murky pub and nightclub interiors. Price yet to be determined.
