Motorola's P790 gives your phone a charge

Motorola's P970 charger contains a battery that holds two full charges for a Motorola handset.

Motorola's latest cell-phone accessory will end the search for an electrical outlet to recharge your phone -- at least for a while.

The P790 portable charger has a 1,700mAh battery that can hold up to two full battery charges for a Motorola mobile phone, or up to 10 charges for a Bluetooth headset, the company said at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore. Shaped like a miniature version of the company's Pebl handset, the charger comes in a range of colors, including pink and green.

Designed to extend battery life for additional talk time or multimedia features, the P790 plugs into the Mini USB port on a Motorola handset or Bluetooth headset. The charger, which measures 74 millimeters long and weighs 79 grams, will be available during the third quarter. Pricing was not disclosed.

The colorful charger was just one among a range of Motorola announcements at the CommunicAsia exhibition in Singapore that emphasized the importance of color.

Encouraged by the success of the pink Razr handset, Motorola is expanding its color palette to include green, blue, purple and orange, also called "pumpkin" by company executives. It is also selling a gold-colored Razr under a co-branding deal with fashion label Dolce & Gabbana (D&G).

CommunicAsia runs through June 23.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
