Toshiba Camileo P30 unboxing video

As you may know, last year we conducted a small group test of digital camcorders as we were looking for for something new to record our unboxing videos on. When we conducted our group test we set a budget of £200 – 250 and at the time the only HD camcorders to fall in to that price bracket were only capable of 720p and in fact not all the cameras on test were HD capable at that price point.

Quite a lot has changed and less than a year later most new camcorders can record 1080p or at least 1080i furthermore many manufacturers have achieved this and have managed to lower prices!

The Toshiba Camileo P30

The Toshiba Camileo P30

 

So here we are looking at one of the latest camcorders from Toshiba, the Camileo P30. This is a pistol-grip style camcorder that looks similar to the Xacti range from Sanyo although the P30 is somewhat smaller and lighter than the equivalent Xacti model.

So as always we are starting our review of the Toshiba Camileo P30 with the unboxing video which you can see below. I’m going to put the P30 through its paces over the next few weeks and will have a written review for you soon.

Documents To Go for iPhone is in the App Store

photo Documents To Go has eventually hit the App Store after what seems like forever waiting for it. There are two versions available one that can sync with Microsoft Exchange to retrieve attachments that you can then edit and a straight forward version without the exchange feature.

The one downside so far is the omission of any ability to edit Excel files although Dataviz have promised that this will be updated very soon and for free to anyone that buys this app now.

Pricing of the application is amazing but apparently is a limited time offer, the two versions are priced at £2.99 and £5.99 respectively.

Matt Miller from ZDnet has already done a review of the software and the video is after the break.

Social Browser for iPhone released – lets you share on Twitter and Facebook

Of course it is not really a “browser” (like Opera Mobile or Internet Explorer) but it is an UI control – the same as the one used in Safari – that is used in app – like many other “browser” apps. However this “browser” adds something interesting: you can easily share links to web pages that you are viewing on 2 currently leading social networks: Twitter and Facebook. Of course next week, iPhone OS 3.0 will bring copy and paste and ability to share also with standard social network clients, but sharing directly from the browser might be faster.

This app is FREE (or rather banner-sponsored to be exact) and here is how this app looks like:
