To commemorate the French Independence Day, MobiFrance has come out with a concept phone which is a perfect tribute to one of the best fought independence in the history. To begin with the design it speaks for itself as the phone has been designed on Eiffel Tower, the best known landmark in France. It has been named FL (French Luxury) which is a touch screen phone and has a 7.2 mega pixels camera. Also it stands like a tower and has speakers on sides. It can be used for all the multimedia functions including video and it has vibration mode to go with. Though the manufacturers have not disclosed the price or availability but surely this one will have many takers.
Microsoft Surface Pro 3 offers the power of laptop with the flexibility of a tablet. It features 12-inch display, lightweight body, and pretty versatile. We really love the kickstand and of course the optional type cover, this combination boosts your productivity even more, not to mention the full-size USB 3.0, mini displayport, and microSD card reader. The multi-position kickstand certainly comes in handy to allow you to work comfortably whether you are at your office desk, on the plane, or relaxing in front of TV, the Surface Pen also helps you mark up documents and take notes intuitively. Perhaps this is the Microsoft tablet that delivers what it promises, unfortunately, we don’t have any hands-on experience on this one, but it does sound good on paper.
Scion, Toyota’s youth brand, has launched its concept at the New York Auto Show, Hako Coupe concept. At first sight, this car might look like a classic car for you, but the inside is fully futuristic. Designed by Tokyo Design Division, this Hako Coupe Concept was inspired by the American vintage among young Tokyo trendsetters, it is intended to reflect “youth-inspired trends”. As Jack Hollis (Scion vice president) says “Scion�s Hako Coupe Concept embodies a distinct global perspective on today�s youth”.
“This type of forward thinking complements the Scion philosophy of intently listening to our customers and being willing to take risks to help us see where our brand should be. We took the xB�s iconic boxy shape and explored something more vivacious, yet just as emotionally appealing. This concept is the sporty version of a box.”
Inside, the Hako is accented with orange and metallic detailing that exudes a modern environment with entertainment possibilities. The front and rear seats are covered with urethane and rubber-like upholstery for easy cleaning.
The entertainment system consists of two video monitor screens mounted on the dash for radio, video, and music capabilities. Users can upload their videos and music through a Bluetooth connection.
The shifter looks like a joystick and a track-ball controls the entertainment. Blending vintage style and a gamer’s groove, the Hako Coupe stands out.
