Well, needless to mention we are too touchy with the information technology. However, when this is the time for the gadgetry hardware thing, we run into trouble simply because it is difficult to purchase latest products here in Kathmandu.
It was few years back when I couldn’t find a HDMI cable for my custom made HP Pavilion laptop to be connected to the Samsung’s LCD HDTV. Though after a very hard work, the cable was finally in my hand for as low as NRs 1300. This costs Rs 1000 to 3500 today in Kathmandu.
We have been reported of latest (latest in sense for Kathmandu techies) Digital photo frame, New iPod nano and Compact digicams, along with Sony’s much lauded PSP/ PS3 and Wii.
Digital photo frame from Transcend is T photo 720 capable of displaying both photo and video on resolution as high as 800×720. The supported formats are AVI, MOV, MPG, MP4, MPEG, JPEG, BMP motion pictures and still ones. Interfaced via USB this gadget will cost your purse NRs 9500 (for 2GB and built-in card reader) which is a little more than the one quoted in international market, available at Technoshoppe, NLIC City Center, Kamalpokhari.
All new iPod nano now supports video camera, mic and a speaker with memory of 8GB (costing NRs 14,500) and 16GB (costing NRs 18,500) can be purchased from EvoStore at Sherpa Mall, Durbar Marg. This new model of iPod nano features a built-in FM radio with live pause and iTunes tagging as well as a built-in pedometer. This will end your query to how much does iPod cost in Nepal.
Compact digital camera – this is quite common so a bit later in our article. Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ15 digital camera is available in Kathmandu for Nrs 22,200 which is quite a large for digicam having just 9.1MP and 28mm wide-angle 10x optical zoom Leica DC lens and 3 inch LCD. This gadget is available at Paramount Electronics Pvt Ltd at Sherpa Mall and Panasonic Showroom at NLIC City Center.
