The high-end XQISIT LZ380 stereo wireless headset is fitted with Bluetooth technology to ensure lossless playback wherever you are. Its elegant headband and foldable ear cups make it easy to take them with you. The volume can be adjusted and tracks can be skipped by just touching the set. The XQISIT has a built-in microphone, so you can also use it to make phone calls. The headset is available in three colors: black, white and red.
Illuminating Book Reader
Dimmed light, dusk and cloudy days can be a nuisance when you want to read a book, but the new PER3764BC Lumen e-book reader from Prestigio offers you an undisrupted reading experience thanks to an illuminated display with adjustable brightness. You can choose from five illumination modes, so the device can be used in every setting, from a sunny day to a dark room. The device uses E-Ink technology, which makes pages look just like those in traditional paper books.
Small But Smart
European cell phone producer Kazam has unveiled a new model called the Kazam Q4.5. This smartphone is a trendy premium “mini” device offering advanced features. It supports two SIM cards and has an Android 4.2.2 operating system and a 4.5-inch IPS display. The phone works smoothly thanks to a high-performance quad-core 1.3 GHz processor and 1GB of fast RAM memory. It comes with a detachable long-life 1800 mAh battery.
Peugeot 5008: French Comfort
Even though the compact Peugeot 5008 van was first unveiled in 2009, its highly functional interior and attractive body (with a drag factor of cx-0.29) continue to impress. It might be just 4,529 millimeters in length, 1,644 mm in height and 1,837 in width, but believe it or not, this car can comfortably seat seven passengers in its roomy interior. The seats in the middle can be adjusted horizontally and have reclining back rests. The two seats in the rear are admittedly less comfortable and probably best for children and short people. The 5008 offers passengers many handy compartments with a total volume of 48 liters, while the trunk is 679 liters in size, expandable to 1,754 liters with folded seats.
The car is available with a variety of engines, including a 1.6-liter 120 hp gasoline engine and a 1.6-liter THP 155 hp turbocharged gasoline engine, and three Common Rail diesel engines: a 1.6-liter HDi with 115 hp, a 2.0-liter HDi with 150 hp, and a 2.0-liter HDi boasting 160 hp. The Peugeot 5008 has front-wheel drive and comes with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission.
