Ms. PacmanWhat’s better than a game of Pacman? A game of Ms. Pacman, of course. The Namco classic is celebrating its 25th anniversary and will soon be available from the iTunes store for your iPod. Last fall the original was released, and we are thinking that Apple is making yet another attempt to compete with the PSP which, with a modicum of hacking, already boasts the ability to carry many of the classic games, such as those produced by Atari. Find Ms. Pacman at the iTunes store at the decently inexpensive price of $5.99.

Cell Phone USBMoixa has already produced an award winning USB connector for charging regular batteries. Now they have unveiled one for cell phones, Blackberries, and other personal devices that will not only save you a few bucks but will also help save the planet. This is truly a gift for those of us who have a tendency to run our cell phone down to empty before we remember we actually have to recharge it occasionally. Contact Moixa for price and future availability or to be put on their product launch alert list.

BlackBerry 8800With all the cell phones and smartphones out there flaunting the latest innovations, choosing the right one can be a daunting process.  Research in Motion just made that decision even harder (or perhaps easier depending on your view) when it introduced the new BlackBerry 8800 at the 3GSM World Congress, a showcase for state-of-the-art wireless devices. While targeted toward the corporate crowd, the 8800—the slimmest corporate Blackberry yet—includes such consumer-friendly features as a media player that supports MP3 and AAC audio as well as MPEG-4 and H.263 encoded video files, and a microSD slot for music and video storage. The smartphone also contains a QWERTY keyboard, trackball, GPS software and Bluetooth capability.

The 8800 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS and supports EDGE - but oddly enough, leaves out HSDPA. That means that while the phone is slick, you won’t be doing any broadband surfing or downloading. It also has a built-in GPS chip, which means it can give you directions and support other location-based applications right out of the box.

The BlackBerry 8800 will be available this month, with pricing yet to be announced.

Fast and Furious TokyoBased on the ever popular “The Fast and The Furious Tokyo” game, the I-play mobile version has managed to capture the Best Made for Mobile Game at the 3GSM World Congress. Released last June, the game received over 6 million downloads in under six months. Based on Universal’s movies of the same name, gamers get to be the new kids on the block and beat their rivals. We think that this is a more viable alternative to its sometimes real life counterpart.

Digby

Gear Live reader “Slezak” wrote in to tell us about Digby:

Digby is a really cool app that lets you shop for all sorts of stuff from your BlackBerry without having to use the browser. It has a local catalog with flowers, chocolates, books, cds, dvd, etc,.. including search capabilities for stuff not already in the catalog. It links up with the address book and the calendar so you can buy and ship stuff to yourself or anyone in my address book without having to rekey info that is already on my BlackBerry. Digby is a free download and the products are at the same price as they are on the vendors normal website.

So there you have it, for all you BlackBerry owning shopoholics out there, Digby might be just the thing you needed to push your credit card bill over the edge.

[Thanks Slezak!]

NYT Electronic CrosswordBill Clinton does them. Jon Stuart and Sheila Franklin do them. What are they? The New York Times Crossword Puzzles, of course. What better way to stave off Alzheimer’s or prove your mental acumen than by doing them in pen? We suggest a stylus and the NYT Electronic Crossword. With a 4 x 2.5-inch LCD screen, it contains 1,000 puzzles and comes with a memory saver, three levels of skill, a spell checker, and a hint helper (although we consider that cheating.) The handheld device runs on 2 AAA batteries (not included) with auto-shut off and adjustable contrast, and is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.99. What’s a six letter word for “expensive?”
