Gais Faltima Plays, Records

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Music, USB,

Faltima 010

The Gais Faltima Series 010 may have an odd name but can do a lot. It plays music and data CDs, MP3s and WMA by USB, MP3 and WMA files by SD card and analog 33, 45 and 78 records. It also features an AM/FM tuner, front controls and number display. But the best part is that while the tunes are playing, the device will record them to another media form. At a price of $499.99, this one is so far only available in Japan, but we it expect will find its way elsewhere by the next holiday season.

Levi’s Red Tag Cell Phone

Red Tab Levi Cell Phone

We guess that Levi’s last cellie was a big hit because they are doing it again with a Limited Edition Red Tab. The phone also features an MP3 player, stereo Bluetooth capability, and a 2 megapixel camera with flash. Only 100 will be available through Collette online and for your €550 ($870.00) they will include a “premium” box, a cover for the cell phone, a hands free kit, a metal chain, and up to 13 letters of customization. Maybe if Lee jeans puts one out, they will come up with something affordable for the little people.
