New S-XGen Ultra Mobile Personal Computer and Communications Device from Seamless Offers Almost Full-sized Keyboard and up to Eight Hour Battery Life
S-XGen First Practical UMPC for All-Day Computing and Communications on the Road
CARSON CITY, NV, January 09, 2007 / PRNewswire / Ã¢ÂÂ A New Ultra Mobile Portable Computer (UMPC) and Communications device offering an innovative new design debuted today at the 2007 Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The S-XGenÃ¢ÂÂ¢ from Seamless Wi-Fi (OTC BB: SLWF) subsidiary Seamless Internet is the first UMPC to integrate all of the computing and digital functionality of other UMPC's in a design that offers a near full-size keyboard and an ultra-productive eight-hour battery life.
Created for serious business users, the S-XGen combines several digital products into a single, easy-to-access device. The unit's extra long battery life and fold-out keyboard makes the S-XGen a serious full-day work partner that puts an end to frustrating text messaging-style 'dumb thumb' typing and 'low battery' AC-power searches.
"Virtually all UMPC's offer similar applications but the S-XGen combines a variety of productivity-enhancing digital devices into a single platform that offers users the ability to be truly mobile powerhouses," said Al Reda, Chairman of Seamless Wi-FI. "The unit's industry-leading eight hour battery life makes the S-XGen a mobile device that seriously addresses the real needs of today's mobile road warriors Ã¢ÂÂ on a plane, in a taxi or out in the field."
The S-XGen is a handheld device that eliminates the need for a separate laptop, cell phone, Tablet PC and PDA. Based around the intel PXA 270 XscaleÃ¢ÂÂ¢ 520 MHz processor, the base S-XGen includes 256MB of RAM, a 20GB hard drive and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and tri-band cellular wireless and direct Ethernet, USB and RJ45 connectivity. A 4-inch TFT 470 x 280 resolution touch screen provides brilliant imagery and video web cam, microphone and media playback and gaming controls are built-in. The S-XGen comes ready to run with MicrosoftÃÂ® WindowsÃÂ® Pocket PC and Microsoft OfficeÃÂ® Mobile Suite preinstalled. The total size of the S-XGen is approximately 6.5 inches long by 3.8 inches wide and it weighs only 14 oz. For real mobile productivity the most compelling attributes of the S-XGen are its Qwerty layout near full-size fold-out keyboard and a battery life rated at an industry high of up to 8 hours of use.
The MSRP of the S-XGen with Microsoft Office included is $1,395.00. Units are shipping in Q1 2007. Seamless Internet is demonstrating the S-XGen at CES Booth Number IP 255 and IP 271 at the Sands Innovation Pavilion at the 2007 CES.

Color is the name of a new smart phone app that lets users share photos with anyone nearby who also has the app -- even if they didn’t ask for it. Founder Bill Nguyen tells CNN all about it.
Bill Nguyen: “We describe it similar to like going to a wedding where you have all these disposable cameras laying out everywhere. You take pictures and it’s great because you share a moment together. Well, we’ve done that -- except with iPhones. So every camera that takes a picture around you - within 150 ft - is going to be instantly in your application. You didn’t have to upload it. You didn’t have to download it. You didn’t have to share it. You didn’t have the friend anyone. It just happens.”
The big difference with Color is it’s complete openness. The app allows you to effortlessly flip through photos of anyone around you. And Business Insider says - because of this, the app could help jump-start relationships between strangers. (video: Vimeo / Color Labs, Inc.)
“This is huge... Now with Color you can quickly view a photo of that cute girl next door, leave her a comment, and, if you do it right, go out to drinks later that night.”
On the other hand, Forbes points out there could be negative backlash - especially when dealing with celebrities.
“I can imagine scenarios involving snoopers hanging out outside celebrities’ homes in the hope of getting geographically close enough to get access to their Color streams...”
As you can see, Color is getting a lot of imaginative reactions - both in the Twitterverse and on the Blogosphere. Most of them are about the lack of privacy -- and the potential that Color users will get x-rated photos from people nearby -- whether they want them or not.
The Stir thinks it’s “an awesome tool for pervy voyeurs.”
Locker Gnome says it’s “kind of creepy”
It has a 2 out of 5 star rating on the Apple App Store - with one commenter saying it’s, “only a matter time before the porn shows up.”
A lot of others are reacting to the $41 million that Silicon Valley venture capitalists invested in the company - the most a private software startup has ever gotten. Tech Crunch answers the question -- are these investors insane?
“Well, they’re making a bet. It’s a very big bet, but it’s not as insane of a bet as it may seem on the surface... It’s an idea that could add a truly new layer to the world — and augment reality in a meaningful way. Isn’t that an idea worth betting on?”
The Wall Street Journal adds - the investments make sense, because the future is all about mobile devices.
“Behind new services is also the idea that the phone, carried by people at all times, can reinvent the notion of a social network by sharing more real-time information about where people are, what they're seeing and even who they're around.”
Sorry BlackBerry users. This app is only for iPhone and Android devices.

Tired of plugging in your mobile devices? Try charging them while you walk. Scientists from Georgia Tech have created what they call the first commercially viable nanogenerator. It’s a chip that uses your body as a power source.
Metro explains how it works.
“Hailed as a milestone, the tiny chip works by using zinc oxide nanowires so small that 500 could fit in a human hair. When they are strained or flexed, electricity is produced -- meaning any body movement from the pinch of a finger to a beating heart can generate power.”
The researchers say this is the first of these generators that can deliver a high enough charge to power electronics. Lead researcher Z.L. Wang demonstrated to the American Chemical Society how the device produces as much electricity as a pair of AA batteries.
“The major breakthrough we have made in last year is to boost up the power output. … So that means we have ten microwatts of energy output. How do we do this? It’s just any mechanical flicking like this. There’s two volts come off that.”
The technology is so adaptable, it can be used practically anywhere. Wang said they’ve already experimented with lining a car tire with the devices. But Geek**** explains the use that’s getting tech addicts really excited: no more plugging in.
“In principal, the nanowires are small enough to sew or embed into pretty much everything. … So if they were embedded in your pants, every step you take would generate a charge of electricity that could be funneled into an iPod or a battery pack… Pretty neat, huh? We’ll all be walking portable gadget chargers before we even know it.”
If that’s not sci-fi enough for you, there’s even talk of using the human heartbeat to generate power. Tech bloggers are dreaming of heart-powered phones, but a writer for Register Hardware says it’s probably premature to line up for the iPulse.
“Of course, actually implementing these devices as coronary iPod chargers isn't a top priority, but Wang's idea of a heart powered nano chip to run an implanted insulin pump is a more serious suggestion likely to get medical attention.”
Wang says he hopes to bring the chips to the market in three to five years, ready to be put into shoes, tires, train tracks... Where else could they go?
