Diweinuo Moka2 Turn and iPhone or Android Phone Into a Dual SIM iPhone or Android Smartphone

Did you ever find yourself in the situation where you needed to carry more than one phone with you? If you did, than you know what I am speaking about – always make sure both phones are charged, don’t loose them, additional weight in your pocket … etc.
If you never been in this situation, continue reading anyway – as technology gets cheaper and cheaper, the corporate world tends to equip all their employees with business phones, so in the near future you will probably be in the same situation ….

The Diweinuo MOKA2, turns your iPhone and any other Android based phone into a dual or triple SIM phone in seconds. You insert the SIM cards into the keychain sized quad band GSM gadget, you tether the Diweinuo MOKA2 to your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth (don’t freak out … there is an app that does that automatically!) and you’re ready to place and receives calls from both SIMs using your smartphone as headset. The unit also allows sharing of contact between the SIMs and features a 300mAh rechargeable battery that allows up to 70 hours of standby and 4 hours of talk time.

Another big advantage of the Diweinuo MOKA2 is that it can turn an iPod touch into a phone without needing to have an internet connection (the SIM cards and the GSM communication is done by the MOKA2 while the info is streamed to the iPod via Bluetooth)

Now that you know how it works and you got where the Dual SIM iPhone is coming from … Let me know your thoughts about it in the comments …

Neptune Pine Smartwatch Keyboard

The Neptune Pine is one of those gadgets that make us wonder how come it did not appear until now!
On one side you have the Wow factor given by it’s unique style, on the other side you have the combined functionality of a smartphone that you can wear at your wrist as a regular watch.

Neptune, the manufacturer of Neptune Pine, is a Montreal company working on creating true smartwatches – we’re not speaking here about a watch that connects to your smartphone to bring additional functionality, but about a real smartphone, with all the features and functions you would expect from a smartphone.

Let’s take a look at Neptune Pine-s features :

  • 2.5in screen (resolution 432×250 pixels – 202 pixels per in)
  • Capacitive touchescreen
  • Connectivity: quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 3G, 802.11
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 (the plug is located in the smartwatch strap)
  • 5MP camera
  • GPS, Bluetooth, Regular headphones (3.5 mm jack)
  • 1Ghz processor
  • 3 storage versions: 8GB, 16GB and 32GB
  • 800 mAh battery (5 hours if talk time; 120 hours of stand-by)
  • Micro-SIM – like the ones used in iPhone
  • HRM (heart Rate Monitor); FM radio

The smartwatch runs on Leaf OS (a modified version of the popular Android). While the Neptune Pine‘s specs are impressive, our only worry is typing experience on a such small screen. Neptune confirmed they modified the way the keyboard is displayed on the screen and all the keys are as big as the keys used in the iPhone keyboard.

The Neptune Pine is available for pre-order with delivery in Q3 2013.

Credit Card Sized Backup Battery Pack For Micro USB Smartphones - Android, Blackberry

Once I was looking to buy binoculars. While I was checking the online forums for reviews, I got onto the best piece of advice I could ever get “The best binoculars are those that you have with you”!! Wow … How powerful is that? Since than, this advice influenced many of my purchasing decisions.
Think about it … how many times you wanted to have that super DSLR with you, or the brand new shinny iPad, or the 6″ GPS unit, or those military grade binoculars … to find out that you left it at home for the convenience of not carrying it with you all day long…

You might wonder what the link between buying binoculars and smartphone backup batteries? Well … The best backup battery is the one you have with you! Most backup batteries are bulky and you have to worry about carrying another “gadget” in your pockets. It’s easy to forget about them and, when you need them, to simply realize that your backup is at home, charging.

Things are different with the Credit Card Sized Backup Battery. Once charged, you can simply slide it in your wallet and keep it there until needed. The backup gives you an additional hour of usage for most smartphones out there. It is compatible with Android and Blackberry smartphone, and basically any phone / gadget that uses a micro USB port for charging (iPhone users can use it via additional plug convertors).
The backup battery has a micro USB cable included, is covered by a Lifetime Warranty and features the following sizes: 3 1/4″ W x 2″ H x 1/4″ D. (1 oz.) – that’s 8.25W x 5.08H x 0.63D (28 grams) for our European visitors.

Chances you will forget your wallet at home are mince, so getting a credit card sized backup battery will make you the owner of the best battery backup up pack ever (for the simple fact that you will always have it with you)!
