Nikon, one of the leading manufacturers of top of the class DSLR’s, has released their latest entry level D3200 camera.

For the frequent travelers, Acer’s K130 can be very convenient as it offers a portable projector that you can use anytime, anywhere. For a price of $499.99, it only weighs 500g with a dimension of 140 x 116 x 41mm. It’s a 3D ready device with a native resolution of 1280 x 800, and sports a USB and an HDMI port. It also has an SD card reader.
Another interesting gadget is LG’s latest addition to its list of smart phones. It might not be the best competitor for the latest iPhone nor the rumored Samsung Galaxy S3. But the LG Optimus Elite is built for the eco friendly and budget tight users. The phone’s most notable feature is that it’s only sold for $29.99 for a two year contract. And comes with the low price are also the not so favorable specs that consumers will get with the Optimus Elite. It has a 3.5 in. touchscreen with a low resolution of 480 x 320. It runs on an older Android 2.3 mobile OS, an 800 MHz single core processor, NFC and a 5MP camera. But it could still be a good steal if you don’t want to shell out large amounts just for these latest technology gadgets.
