Geode Origami Portable Mobile Communicator

The conceptual Geode Origami portable mobile communicator, introduced at Comdex this past November, is like a combo meal for the digerati. Developed by National Semiconductor Corp. of Santa Clara, Calif., the compact device integrates wireless video communication and phone, digital camera, video camcorder, MP3 audio, PDA, Internet and e-mail access, and Microsoft Windows. Compact in size—4×7.5 inches long and 10 ounces—the folding unit features a 4-inch LCD display, stereo sound, a built-in microphone and speaker, headphones and headset connectors. www.national.com
