Equipment and display
The ROKR E8 dispenses with a large screen and offers no UMTS or wi-fi for fast surfing in the internet. Motorola is breaking new ground with the operating concept: No fixed numbers are printed on the keyboard, instead a display panel that pops up matching icons depending on the application while listening to music is located under the keyboard as start, stop, pause.
Operation and navigation
That gives relatively small blaupunkt navi 8.9 cm screen diagonal s since march, according to new is the map. A long press on the blue dot is needed to bring it to life. But then it showed sprinter qualities. It was flash navigation ready and needed only 10 seconds to calculate the test long distances over land. The calculated routes were slightly longer than the reference routes in the cut. Default navigation selects not the quickest route, but a mixture of fast and short track.
That is myguide 3100 since september 2007 on the market, but still beyond the shop counters. The maps in the navi comes from july 2007. The pilot brings navigation, but otherwise no extras.
Thanks to no-frills user experience is the goal quickly typed. After the turn it took, however, right until the unit was ready for navigation. The test route calculation brought the processor under the hood of the myguide properly thinking: Even for the 23 kilometres short city route needed the device 17 seconds.
Speed and equipment
Recently, Aldi sold the NetBook Medion Akoya mini E1210 is actually a wind U100. Under the hood, there is technology of MSI. There is little difference in speed and features: the MSI unit has also an atom processor by Intel (clock frequency: 1.6 GHz), as well as one gigabyte memory. Motherboard and graphics card are also from Intel. The Bluetooth interface, which you wirelessly connect devices, such as mobile phone or headset with the NetBook is new. In contrast to the Medion notebook, the MSI unit has no input and switch on the power supply.
Navigons flagship 8110 proved when calculating routes particularly fixed. Even for the more distant destinations the navi in record time tinkering around the shortest routes. Only the interurban routes were slightly longer than the COMPUTER image reference route.

With its pentium processor dual core T2390 intel (two computing cores, 1.86 ghz clock frequency) the medion akoya MD 96850 managed a brisk pace of work. Thanks to three gigabytes of memory, memory-hungry programs ran very quickly. The speed of the game was, however, very low: The graphics processor calculated on average only 8 frames per second. For graphically elaborate 3D games, the notebook is thus not suitable.
