Latest Video: Unboxing Live 128: Exclusive! White Xbox One “I Made This” edition
James Kendrick over at jkonthrun is a lucky geek these days. He recently took possession of a Sony UX50 Micro PC (can’t officially call it a UMPC, I guess), and gives us a whopping 44 minute Unboxing Ceremony video:
Head on over, and check it out.
Another lucky geek, Reggie, sent word that he got a UX50 as well, and he has some Unboxing Ceremony photos and impressions posted up on his site, Micro PC Talk.
Blogging buddy Mark VandeWettering over at brainwagon.org brings out the nostalgia in honor of Unboxing.com, and shares a recreation of the Unboxing Ceremony for his Nintendo Virtual Boy:
Matt “palmsolo” Miller has got some initial impressions of Nokia’s E61 “BlackBerry Killer” device over at his new Mobile Gadgeteer blog on ZDNet. He’s also shared some Unboxing Ceremony pics:
You can see the rest of his pics in this Flickr set.
How does Matt like this device? Is he going to replace his reliable Treo 650 with the E61? Read the article, and stay tuned to find out. I never really gave a second thought to any device from Nokia until I saw this one, and read Matt’s thoughts on it. I’ll have to have a closer look…
Apple has updated the Special Edition U2 iPod (all black with red clickwheel) to the current 5G iPod with Video, and iLounge has got a great first look at it, along with some great Unboxing Ceremony photos:
Check out the article for lots more photos. The packaging of the U2 iPod is even more elaborate than the benchmark standard iPod with Video.
This is kind of old, but I’ve been meaning to post it anyway, and Diogo actually emailed in and requested an Xbox 360 Unboxing Ceremony, so since I don’t have one of my own yet, this will have to do.
I wouldn’t mind having one of those. Thanks, Joystiq!
Nick Starr recently got a new camera, a 10 megapixel Casio Exilim EX-Z1000, and he has diligently taken photos of the Unboxing Ceremony for all of us:
Thanks for sharing, Nick! You can check out the rest of the photos in this Flickr set.
I’m sort of in the market for a new compact digital camera (and lusting after the Canon SD700 IS), but I’ll definitely check this Casio out. 10 megapixels is nothing to sneeze at!
Tycho and Gabe over at Penny Arcade just got a DS Lite PR package from Nintendo, and as is Nintendo’s way, they packed in a little something special. The PA guys posted a video to show us:
You really have to watch the video to see the surprise. Nice one, Nintendo!
Flickr user Tidemann comes through again with some great Unboxing Ceremony shots of the Altec Lansing inMotion portable audio system (for iPods, but works with other audio sources):
Man, you guys submit some awesome stuff to the Unboxing Flickr group. And you’ve probably noticed, that’s where most of the things I’ve posted have come from.
But, I’ve gotten some great suggestions via email, too. Problem is, I’m way behind on answering emails. Don’t worry - I haven’t forgotten you! And I appreciate you thinking of me, and sending in your suggestions!
From time to time I’ll post up some quick links of various unboxing activities that have caught my eye. For whatever reason (probably because I’m too lazy), I didn’t do a full post on each of these, but they’re still worth a link.
Flickr user mitchrusk11 has some Unboxing pics of a white iPod nano…
Tidemann has some shots of a Fullrate.dk, which appears to be a DSL or cable modem:
Read his blog post describing the speedy arrival of his new toy, and check out the rest of the Unboxing Ceremony photos on his blog.
That’s it for this installment of Unboxing Drive By - stay tuned for more!
