There are some dual 2.5-inch RAID enclosures out there, but none can claim to the five drive capacity that Addonics’ latest Compact RAID enclosure supports

The newly revealed Sony Ericsson Cedar cell phone doesn’t look like much, but this affordable handset is actually quite elegant in its presentation. It’s not a smartphone, but appears to offer integrated Facebook and Twitter access. That’s a good start. You may also notice beyond the elegant design, that the Cedar makes uses of recycled plastics, offers a lower power charger, comes with an e-manual, and is wrapped up in compact packaging.

I was able to enjoy some brief hands-on time with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 during CES in January. At first glance, it’s quite clear that the X10 is in direct competition with devices like the Apple iPhone 3GS, it’s big touchscreen display and lack of physical keyboard screams “touch me.” While it does make use of a rather vanilla build of Google Android (1.6) for its core operating system, it’s equipped with two additional user interface features: Mediascape and Timescape. The former is used to manage your pictures, music, and so on, whereas the latter gathers up your social networking and messaging things.

Review: Addonics NAS2XU2 NAS 2.0 adapter

Addonics-NAS2XU2-multi

I just finished testing the Addonics pocket NAS 2.0 NAS2XU2 device that was announced just a couple weeks ago. My first thoughts are that it’s loaded with features, faster than expected, and small enough to use with your mobile office on any budget.
