Video previews of Nokia's new 5700

The 5700 was announced by Nokia a few days ago. It is a combination of Nokia's 3250 and 5300. It has a twist design and is an XpressMusic phone. I found two clips on the phone. The first one is from symbianfrance. It shows the UI of the phone in action. The second clip is from clipset.net and I have no idea what language it is in. It does have an on screen translation though but it doesn't

Amazing video of Sony Ericsson Night Tennis Miami 2007

Night tennis is a special event which Sony Ericsson created. It was introduced last year in Madrid, Spain. The game is played in total darkness except for UV lighting. Players are dressed in special glow in the dark clothing. The ball glows in the dark along with the paint on the court. This is accompanied by a neon light show and world famous DJ's, Paul Oakenfold and Masters At Work. This looks

Hands on video preview of Sony Ericsson's Z750

Sony Ericsson anounced the Z750, their first HSDPA phone a few days ago at CTIA. This is the first hands on video I have come across (thanks to phonearena). Enjoy.

Flashing K800 to K810 results

I posted before about the possibility to convert the K800 to K810. Well, a member of esato has tried flashing his K800 with K810 firmware. He flashed the K810i R1KC001 firmware with wotanserver with success. Here are the results:- The photofix function is present but not that useful (not much different from photoDJ)- TrackID is also present- Java is updated to version 7.4- Date of firmware is 7/3

Pics of Sony Ericsson's Z310

The Z310 is a lower end version of the Z610. It has the same external shiny flip as the Z610. You can only see the screen when it's lit up. The Z310 doesn't look half bad considering it's price. It even has a camera and light effects.

Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot mock-up

This mock-up was created by 'Meilow'. He used the Ubiquam U-520 phone for inspiration. It has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera with xenon flash. The lens cover slides sideways and it has a shiny front like the K810. This Cyber-shot also supports UMTS. It actually looks quite good.

Video of Sony Ericsson's W580 fitness app

"With the W580 Walkman® phone you can even take your favourite tracks to the track. It will count your steps, your calories and monitor your running speed/distance/time. Add to that your best tunes for motivation and whether you’re on a run, in the gym or just out for a stroll, the W580 is the perfect fitness partner."Above is SE's description of the fitness app that comes with the Z580. This

This is a bit old but still worth checking out. 'Rog' from se-community has posted a pic gallery and a hands on preview video of the phone. Enjoy.

MOTOKRZR SE Z610 hybrid

Well, I guess the folks in China decided to kill two birds with one stone...copy the design of the MOTOKRZR and Sony Ericsson's Z610. It comes in turquoise, pink and black just like the Z610. Well, everything else just reminds me of the KRZR. The phone is a dual band clamshell. It features a 1.3 mega pixel camera, 260k color 176x220 screen and supports t-flash memory cards. It's special feature

Sony Ericsson W850 copycat

This is a dual band slider phone. It features a 1.3 mega pixel camera, 1.8 inch 176x220 260k color screen and supports t-flash memory cards. It also has stereo speakers. One at the top of the phone and the other at the bottom. The main attraction I would say is the colorful lighting effect when a call or message is recieved. Not only did they copy the W850 design, the icons in the menu are copied

Nokia 5300 copycat

This is a dualband phone which features a 2 mega pixel camera, 260 k color 3 inch touchscreen and supports t-flash memory cards. The best part is that it even has a game emulator. I am guessing that it is a NES (Nintendo) emulator meaning there are tons of games (which are included). It is not a slider like the phone it is trying to copy. It also has gaming buttons. All this for only around 130$

Motorola Ming copycat

This phone from China features 2.2 inch 260k color 176x220 touchscreen, 2 mega pixel camera with LEDS and loads of other stuff. It also lists that the mp3 ringtones are very loud. What really catches my eye is the fact that the logo symbol looks almost identical to Motorola's symbol. Like most copycat phones from China, this phone is dualband and alot cheaper than the original Motorola Ming. It

Convert your K800 to K810

Well I don't mean the housing. Now you can flash K810 firmware to K800 phones. The K810 firmware has a slightly improved media player, more advanced themes and Track ID. Sounds good to me. Now all we need is to try to change the housing. Good luck to anyone who wants to flash their K800 with K810 software. The flashing is through wotanserver.

Helio's Ocean dual slider

This is one impressive device. It slides one way to reveal a number keypad and slides another way for a full QWERTY keyboard. It also isn't so big and doesn't even look thick or bulky.I find the screen a tad small though. Mobileburn has a hands on preview and a picture gallery.

Review of Sony Ericsson's K200/K220i

The K200/k220 are SE's low end phones. The handset measures 103х46х16.7 mm at weighs 82 grams. The phone features a VGA camera. The user interface is simple and easy to use. The difference between the K200 and K220 is that the latter has FM radio. Mobile-review has an in depth review of the phone. I think the phone looks good for it's price.

Sony Ericsson K550 vs Nokia 6300 pics

The K550 is SE's second Cyber-shot phone and little brother to the K800. It has lower specifications than the K800. The Nokia is targeted at the same audience as the K550 but it has some advantages over the K550. I personally like the look of the K550 more.

Sony Ericsson se123?

I find these pictures quite funny. It is quite rare that SE would present a phone with the 'se123' label which is used before a phone gets named. These pictures are from CeBit.

Sony Ericsson W580 preview

Se-community has a hands on preview of the W580. There are pics of it next to the W880. The W580 is one fine and slim slider. The more pics I see of the phone. the more I like it. There is also a video clip of the phone. Enjoy.

The K220 is a low end phone from SE. It features a built in camera and FM radio. It comes with large keys and a simple user interface. It actually looks nice for a cheap phone.

Musubi Easter Eggs

Yes, yes, I know Easter is still a week away, but I've been looking forward to this lunch box for months, and besides, next week is Spring Break. Anyway, maybe this advance posting will give some of you time to join me in making adorable Musubi Eggs this Easter!

To make these eggless eggs I followed the recipe for Musubi in Vegan Lunch Box. (Also known as onigiri, musubi are Japanese sticky rice balls.) I pressed the sticky rice into a plastic Easter egg sprayed with nonstick spray to start forming the egg, then used my hands to solidify and finish the shaping. I pushed the filling in where an egg yolk would be. These are filled with cashew butter but tart, salty umeboshi plum is traditional.


To decorate the eggs I used mamenori -- thin, vegetable-dyed sheets of edible soybean paper (please note that the pink sheets are colored with cochineal and are therefore not vegan). I cut the sheets with scissors, pinking sheers, and paper punches, then set them in place with a dab of water. The mamenori tended to curl when wet but wouldn't stick without a bit of water, which was a big pain. In the end, though, I was happy with our little eggs and loved the pastel colors.

As you may have noticed if you followed the mamenori link above, these sheets cost a pretty penny, especially if you want to use an assortment of colors. I was lucky enough to work out a trade with Cooking Cute for a few sheets -- thanks, Ngoc! If mamenori is out of your price range, other options include using nori or dyeing the rice itself with natural food coloring. I even think those thin "fruit by the foot" fruit leathers I've seen at the grocery store would work.

I was also inspired recently by the fruit-filled bouquets over at Edible Arrangements, and decided try my hand at making my own tiny arrangement for Easter. I cut out a pineapple flower with a cookie cutter, used an apple corer to remove the center, then wedged a cantaloupe ball in the middle and surrounded the flower with honeydew leaves.

On the side is Sprout Salad with Mandarin Orange Dressing (also from Vegan Lunch Box). The dressing is hiding in a little plastic carrot down below, nestled next to a happy warren of jicama bunnies. A small container of sunflower seeds can be eaten as is or sprinkled on the sprouts.

Verdict: The first thing shmoo said upon seeing this lunch? "Oooh, honeydew!" Yes, melon is exciting when it's out of season! The eggs were a hit, too. Shmoo was tickled that he could actually eat the colored paper. He loves squeezing his dressings out of all these little plastic squeeze bottles, but still doesn't seem too keen on actually eating his salads. 5 stars. Happy Easter!

Tons of K810 pictures

I found at a Chinese forum a thread with tons of pictures of the K810. There are also pics of the K810 next to the K800. Enjoy.

Nokia E62 review

The Nokia E62 is a business phone available through Cingular.The E62 lacks both the 3G UMTS and Wi-Fi of its predecessor, the E61. I have used the E61 in the past. The keyboard was a pleasure to use and the screen was fantastic. I was disappointed that it didn't have a camera. I also found the phone a bit to wide. Phonearena has recently reviewed the E62.

Vegan Lunch Box Accessories Kits

I love all the little napkins, containers, and toys I've been using lately in our lunch boxes. I thought some of you might want to join in the fun, so I've put together a selection of Lunch Box Accessories Kits for sale!



First, each kit will feature one of these 2.5 ounce stainless steel ramekins with a plastic lid. The ramekins will fit inside a Laptop Lunch System or a To-Go Ware container. They are perfect for holding dips, dressings, nuts or small treats. I can't imagine using my stainless steel lunch boxes without them.

Each kit will also include two or more little Lunch Box Napkins, sewn by yours truly. I've been digging through my fabric stash for the last two weeks, sewing up a huge assortment of napkins in all styles and colors, from the demure to the fun and colorful (I went a little crazy on this, so there are many more than what's pictured above).

Finally, as you can see from this picture, my "Lunch Box Toys" drawer is getting rather, well, STUFFED. In the spirit of Spring Cleaning I would be happy to throw in a random toy or two with each order. There are decorative paper and plastic liner cups to hold food and divide larger containers into smaller segments, small plastic containers, party picks and skewers, lunch box notes, soy sauce/dressing squeeze bottles, and more.

Order through PayPal by selecting the "Buy Now" button below. Important: when you place your order you will see a text note field that asks "What's Your Lunch Box Style?" Use this space to tell me anything that will help me choose the right napkins/toys for your order. For example, what kind of lunch box do you use? Is this for a little girl who loves pink, a boy who likes pirates, or a grown-up who likes sock monkeys? Are there any colors you really can't stand? Do you eat with chopsticks? Do you prefer something nondescript? Tell me all about it!

Ooh, I think this will be fun! Supplies are limited, so order quickly before they're all gone.

Nokia N73 clone

This clone of the N73 is called the 'Nokir 828'. It looks almost the same as the N73. It features a 2 mega pixel camera and a 2.6 inch touchscreen. I am sure you have guessed that this clone originated from China. This clone costs only 100$. Nokia is suing every single shop in Hong Kong that is selling this phone.

LG KS20 full touchscreen phone

This is very similar to the LG Prada due to the fact it is a full touchscreen phone. This phone is also not very publicised and listed at very few sites. I stumbled upon it at phonearena. It is a windows mobile smartphone. It is triband phone with UMTS support. It has a 2.8 inch touchscreen with a resolution of 240x320. It features a 2 mega pixel camera, wifi and tv-out. Looks and sounds good.

Nokia N93 vs N93i

The N93 is Nokia's flagship camera/video phone. The N93i is the continuation by improving in size and looks. I personally like the N93i more. The N93 looks big, clumsy and clunky. Spec wise, they are the same. Symbian-freak has compared the two phones head to head.

There has been for quite a while, rumor of a Google phone. It has also been 'kinda' confirmed by Google themselves. This is the latest pic that has popped up on the net. I anxiously await for more info.

Nokia 7088

This is the rumored Nokia 7088. It is a slider CDMA phone. Leather is used in it's construction so this might be a 'L'amour" phone. It has recently popped up at the American FCC site. I think that this will be a low end phone.

Now THAT'S a Lunch Box!

Although I dearly love the kid-friendly Laptop Lunch System I use for shmoo, I still like to keep my eye out for larger, plastic-free lunch boxes that fit us big people and our big, plant-based appetites. Yes, sometimes even my To Go Ware doesn't hold enough salad to satisfy my veggie-lovin' tummy. It's time to Super Size It!

My latest is this 3-tier Food Carrier. It stands about 10 inches high including the handle, which means I can fit it into my insulated cooler for longer trips. With three containers I should be able to pack a nice variety of foods or a set of matching snacks for the three of us. (And hey, if that's still not big enough for you, how about this 4-tier version?)

For its maiden voyage I packed my new food carrier with a hearty lunch for two for shmoo and his Dad, who took off together on a day-long Field Trip of Science. Two white bean hummus and grated carrot sandwiches are packed in the first tier alongside a few radishes. I jammed as many fresh tangerine segments as I could into the second container (shmoo has been known to eat that many all by himself, so I hope he remembers to share!) In the bottom tier are tortilla chips and salsa and a few "seedy fudge balls" made from ground sesame, sunflower, and flax seeds mashed together with tahini, cashew butter, dates, raisins, and a splash of tangerine juice. I rolled them in cocoa so they look like little truffles.

Verdict: Shmoo is quite taken with these stainless steel containers, and is getting old enough to take them apart and put them together by himself. But is he old enough to carry one to school without swinging and denting it, and possibly someone's head in the process? I don't think so. He's sticking with the plastic lunch box.

Shmoo enjoyed the fruit and the fudge balls and ate all but the crusts of his sandwich. My husband took one small bite of his sandwich and ate all the chips and salsa. Guess who's the picky eater in this family? 4 stars.

Let's Hear It For Sneaky Mommas!


After seeing my recent pea-filled St. Patty's Sandwich, Vegan Lunch Box reader Roxy shared this tip: "I like to blend peas into guacamole--it adds more nutrition to the already nutritious dip and you really can't tell the peas are in there. I use about 1/4 cup of peas to every large avocado. Yum!" Thanks, Roxy, I love it! In fact, it inspired me to make a post especially for sharing these kinds of ideas.

Sometimes it seems like the only way you can get children to eat vegetables is to slip a bit in quietly here and there. Kids might also be resistant to eating beans, or nuts, or ground flaxseed, or their daily vitamin. What is a parent to do?

As those of you who have read my book will know, I love getting sneaky! And when it comes to getting healthy foods into reluctant kids, I think a Vita-Mix is a Sneaky Momma's Best Friend. I use mine almost every day to blend vegetables into creamy soups, cooked kale into pizza sauce, even spinach into breakfast smoothies!

Of course, I don't actually lie about what is in my blended concoctions, but even when I tell my son that his favorite black bean soup is filled with onions, zucchini, and peppers, he tends to shrug and keep on eating. I guess it's "out of sight, out of mind", and what he can't see can't gross him out.

What other tips do you have for us desperate Sneaky Mommas (and Poppas)? Please share! And don't worry -- your secrets are safe with us.

Shmoo Review: Benji Bean Sprout Doesn't Eat Meat!

Reviewed by special guest blogger Shmoo.

"Benji Bean Sprout Doesn't Eat Meat!is a kind of neat book. It's about a kid who eats vegetarian and other kids think he's weird because he doesn't eat meat. He eats vegetarian meat. The kids who make fun of him are mean but then they try his food and then they don't think he's so weird anymore. He goes to an animal sanctuary. I want to go to an animal sanctuary some day. I want to see a tiger.

"Vegetarian kids will like this book, or meat eating kids so they can learn about what happens in factory farms and what happens to the animals. Maybe they would lose their appetite for meat, or maybe they would be nicer to vegetarians.

"I have different lunches like this kid. Sometimes other kids wonder what I have for lunches. What was funny was one time this other kid said he liked the smell of my lunch. I like my lunches, too!"

Nokia launches new Nokia N95 campaign

Nokia’s new N95 is a tri-band GSM handset with 3G and HSDPA support. Like others in the N series it makes a big noise with its numerous bells and whistles, not the least of which is built-in GPS and a 5-megapixel camera. I’ve found phones in the N series to be a bit hit and miss both in terms of design and how all the features are managed. Take the superbly designed N73, for example, and

If you are currently a user of Nokia’s N70, which I reviewed a while ago alongside the CoPilot navigation software, then you could well want to cast an eye over its natural successor, the N73.

Nokia’s handsets can sometimes seem over-designed, and/or rather too

This picture was posted by a member over at Esato's forum. I have checked Sony Ericsson's site and have confirmed that these banners do indeed exist there.

St. Patty's Lunch Box

St. Patrick's Day (coming up on March 17th) is quite the event in the McCann household, with lots of wearin' and eatin' o' the green. Well, we eat green every day, but on St. Pat's lots of things start turning green! Case in point: these St. Patty's Peanut Butter sandwiches from Disease-Proof Your Child. Cooked peas are blended with peanut butter to make a stunning green spread. I added some agave syrup to make it a bit sweeter for shmoo.

Other green goodies include grapes, romaine lettuce with pumpkin seeds and a little shamrock squirt bottle filled with raspberry-balsamic vinegar.

And what would St. Patrick's Day be without potatoes? Here are two Potato Beetles from Vegan Lunch Box, packed with a container of ketchup. Chive antennae and nori smiles make these two very happy beetles.

Verdict: The potatoes were a huge hit, with demands for many more "potato 'polies" (he says he thinks they look like "rolypoly" bugs now) for snacks later. He left most of the salad but finished everything else. 4 leaf clovers. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Sony Ericsson Z310i

This is SE's second 'emotional' product. This meaning, it's focus is on the design and styling. It reminds me of their first 'emotional' phone, the Z610i (especially the outer screen).

Pupusas

A Vegan Lunch Box reader named Melissa emailed me a few months ago suggesting that this recipe for pupusas would make a tasty vegan lunch. Pupusas are traditional El Salvadorian corn masa "cakes" filled with meat, cheese, or beans that are patted flat and fried. They are often sold by street vendors in El Salvador and Honduras.

My lumpy little pupusas are filled with refried black beans and cilantro. I must admit I have not yet achieved Masa Mastery; my dough kept tearing and sticking, leaving bits of refried bean poking out as I tried to round the dough balls and pat them flat. Eventually I came out with a few decent-looking pupusas, but even the really ugly ones still tasted good. I packed them with a small container of salsa.

Melissa serves her pupusas with a simple pickled radish slaw, so I followed her lead. This slaw is filled with green and purple cabbage, radishes, vinegar, and cilantro (I'm on a real slaw kick lately, now that I know I like it).

I also made my recipe for Calabacita con Elote (Mexican zucchini and corn) from Vegan Lunch Box. As I revisit some of my recipes with the nutritional knowledge I now have, I'm finding ways to make them healthier. In this case, I steam-fried the veggies with a bit of water instead of oil, then stirred in the marjoram with a tablespoon of Late Harvest Riesling Vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar, sugar and salt. We actually preferred the lighter taste of the white grape vinegar over the original recipe.

To finish the meal on a sweet note I tucked in an organic baby banana and a tangelo. (After taking the picture, shmoo requested that I score the tangelo for easier peeling and wrap it in plastic.)

Verdict: Sadly, this wasn't one of shmoo's favorites, although I thought it made a nice-looking, healthy, well-balanced lunch. He liked the fruit and pupusas and ate them all, but just picked some of the radishes and corn out of the veggie dishes. 3 stars.

Thanks so much, Melissa, for introducing us to pupusas!
