We were hoping that the Lumix DMC-TZ7 camera Panasonic was offering was connected with the RED (Product) line since we couldn’t find another one, but it turns out that the company is offering a limited edition because their research found that hue to be a “favored” color choice. The hybrid cam, with Intelligent Auto Mode and LEICA DC Vario-Elmar Lens is also available in black, silver or brown. You can find them all at Panasonic’s e-shop for $399.95 each.
With all the hype from the new Star Trek movie, we figured it wouldn’t be long before someone came up with a Special Edition Phone. The Nokia 5800 Star Trek Edition is a basic 5800 with a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 3.2 megapixel cam and GPS. The fun starts with the wallpapers, 8 ringtones and screensavers and ends with a Phaser application. Most of the major providers will carry the phone before you go see the flick May 8.

Remember that Gears of War 2 Zune and Game giveaway we started last week, that ran through Christmas eve? Well, we’ve got ourselves a winner. The winning entry can be found in this comment, left by our winner SmileyXX. We’ve confirmed his name and shipping address, and he will
soon be enjoying his Gears of War 2 Zune 120, Gears of War 2 Limited Edition Xbox 360 game, the Aspho Fields Gears of War prequel novel, and a couple other Gears collectables.
Didn’t win? Don’t fret. Despite giving away a bunch of stuff over the last couple of months (the HP Magic giveaway, our HP Mini 1000 giveaway, and this Gears of War swag,) we’ve still got more coming at you over the next few weeks. Keep it locked on Gear Live so you don’t miss it - especially if you’ve been eyeing a new HDTV but just haven’t had the funds to pick one up. Yeah, we might be able to help you out with that dilemma.
Hey, if you haven’t already entered our Gears of War 2 Zune and Game giveaway, what are you waiting for? Today is the last day that we are accepting entries into that particular contest, so if you want in, you’d better head on over to the entry page for the rules. Seriously, entering is quick and easy, and you can walk away with a few hundred dollars worth of Gears of War 2 memorabilia (including a Limited Edition Gears of War 2 Zune!). Nothing to lose, everything to gain kind of thing.

Remember those limited edition white Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones we told you about? Well, we got a pair in our studios and decided to do up a video showing them off. In this episode, we compare the white Ron Herman Beats by Dr. Dre to the standard glossy black Beats, and give you a close-up look at all the major and subtle differences between the two. Of course, the internals are exactly the same, so these $700 white Beats are all about style and high fashion. But hey, they are definitely fun to look at.
Hat tip goes to Colorware, who Monster tells me worked really hard on developing a custom finish that would stand up to bending and everything else people do with headphones. They look fantastic.
Also, in case you missed them, we’ve also got galleries up of the pink Charles Hamilton Beats, and the red LeBron James Beats. Or, you prefer the original, we’ve got the standard Beats by Dr. Dre gallery as well.
