Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

lg n1 tv-pda-gps combo

LG has re-invented the PDA as a portable telly. Or maybe it's re-invented the handheld TV as a Personal Digital Assistant. It's hard to tell - this boy does it all. Called the N1, has DMB digital satellite TV reception, Windows Mobile 5.0's personal information management and internet access tools, GPS courtesy of a SiRFStar III chip, a 5.1-channel surround sound capability, an electronic dictionary and more.

The unit's driven by a 312MHz Marvell XScale processor and packs in 64MB of RAM and 128MB of Flash. There's an SD card slot for extra storage capacity. Up front is a 3.5in, 65,536-colour, 300:1 contrast ratio display, LG said. By one before 1 April and you get a leather carry-case with it too.

The 9.2 x 8.6 x 1.7cm 160g N1 has a 1,700mAh battery.
