Nokia J Headset

Nokia, the Finnish technology behemoth that was one of the first
global mobile phone leaders, calls this new Bluetooth headset its most sophisticated
yet. Light and ergonomic, with an über-sleek stainless steel design that champions
its Scandinavian roots, the J is billed as “Always Ready” — just remove the
earpiece from its holder and you’re ready to talk. The headset does the rest,
powering on, connecting and answering calls. Put the earpiece back in the holder
and the headset will end the call, disconnect and power off. A winner of numerous
design awards, it boasts up to five hours of talk time and up to three months
of standby time. $99.99. www.amazon.com/nokia-j-bluetooth-headset-silver/dp/B004XIB91O

Samsung Series 7 Slate PC

Weighing less than 2 pounds and measuring just a half-inch thick,
the Samsung Series 7 Slate is the ultimate portable PC, equipped with an 11.6-inch
screen, powerful Intel Core i5 processor, a full version of Windows 7 Home Premium
or Windows 7 Professional operating system and an up to 128GB solid-state hard
drive. You can type using the onscreen keyboard and navigate through the Slate’s
features with the highly responsive multitouch screen or write on the screen
using a nifty electromagnetic pen — making it easy to take meeting notes, browse
online or create documents and reports in Microsoft Office 2010. An integrated
microphone and dual 2MP (front)/3MP (rear) cameras can record audio/visual files,
which you can store and share via the full-sized USB port or WiFi, WiMAX and
HSPA connections on the go. The Samsung Power Plus technology means that the
Series 7 Slate battery will retain 80 percent of the original battery capacity
for up to 1,500 charges — so the battery works whenever and wherever you need
it, even after three years of use. $1,099–1,349. www.samsung.com
