Gadget Retailer Helps Dads Be Cool and New Graduates Be Cooler with Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers and much more…

ThinkGeek :: Stuff for Smart Masses – the online retail hub for technology enthusiasts and wholly owned subsidiary of SourceForge, is revealing “Dads and Grads,” its list of high-tech gadgets designed to help gift-givers honor that special graduate or father-figure in their lives.

“Graduation is such a big moment for graduates and parents, I remember it like it was just, ahem, yesterday! As a day that will be remembered for such a long time, why not give a gift that’s fun and useful?” said Caroline Offutt, vice president and general manager, ThinkGeek. “Dads can become kids again and graduates get to hold out for a little bit longer.”

Of the many products available, a long-awaited favorite is back, providing a chance for Dads and Grads to bond like never before. Sort of the modern equivalent of playing catch, only much better and with lots of sound effects, the beloved Star Wars Force FX Lightsabers ($99.99) are now available! They come in six different authentic saber styles, each equipped with blades that light from the bottom up and trigger their own sound effects. Please see ThinkGeek.com for a dramatic, yet informative, product description and video.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Now Shipping

Nokia announced that the highly anticipated Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is now, or soon will be, available in select markets globally, including Russia, Spain, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Finland, among others. The latest in Nokia’s XpressMusic range, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic delivers an affordable music device with a touch screen interface to the mass market.

Aiming to put music into the hands of millions, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers all the music essentials including a graphic equalizer, 8GB memory for up to 6000 tracks, support for all main digital music formats, and a 3.5mm jack. Built-in surround sound stereo speakers offer the industry’s most powerful sound.

“When it comes to music phones, people all over the world want a device that is a great music experience and still works really well as a mobile phone, without sacrificing features,” said Jo Harlow, Vice President, Nokia. “The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic delivers on this and allows consumers to quickly and easily access and share the content that is most important to them with the people that are most important to them.”

Making the most of touch screen technology, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic delivers easy and fast access to all music, video and photos through a one-touch ‘Mediabar’ drop down menu. The Media Bar also offers a direct link to the Web and to online sharing. Because the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports Flash content, individuals can surf the entire web.

The innovative ‘Contacts Bar’ lets people highlight four favorite contacts on their home-screen and, through a single touch, track a digital history of recent text messages, emails, phone logs, photos and blog updates.

For the best screen resolution available on a mobile phone, the 3.2″ widescreen display brings photos, video clips and web content to life in vibrant color and true clarity. With a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and 30 frames-per-second playback and recording, the device is ideal for VGA quality video recording and playback. The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also features a 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and, with a single touch, images or videos can be shared via a favorite online community, such as Share on Ovi, Flickr, or Facebook.

Ensuring a seamless music experience, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic also provides easy access to browse and purchase tracks from the Nokia Music Store, where applicable, while the newly updated Nokia Music PC software allows for easy drag-and-drop transfer of songs and management of any music collection.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic supports 60 languages worldwide and offers a variety of input methods including a virtual alphanumeric keypad, a virtual computer-style QWERTY keyboard, a pen stylus — and for true music enthusiasts, a plectrum — are all available.
