Oregon Scientific is a name that is synonymous with weather gadgets, not phones.  But contrary to popular belief, the company has unveiled a Dect 6.0 compatible phone called the Photo-Touch Phone. At the core of the device is a 7-inch 480×234 LCD screen that can display up to 200 photos from its built-in memory and includes an SD, XD, MMC, MS card reader.  Surprisingly, it can only store up to 50 contacts and to further sour things, the screen isn’t touchscreen, but at least the keypad is ‘touch sensing’.  No word on a US release date, but you can preorder it from Oregon Scientific’s Hong Kong website for about $260.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
