Top Ten Tech Totty

Is it wrong to have these feeling about consumer electronics? Crave doesn't think so -- here are the top ten gadgets we're getting our kicks from...

LG KG810
This, dear friends, is the most seductive mobile phone we've ever set eyes on. Following on from its older sibling, the KG800, aka the Chocolate phone (see, even the name gets your mouth watering), the KG810 has the same sensual heat- and touch-sensitive touchpad, a glowing red keypad that tantalisingly lures you in, and the deepest, darkest, smoothest shiny shell to be found on such a creature. Now arriving in the form of a clamshell, however, we've found we can cradle it even closer to our faces and coo into it for all eternity. This is a phone you really want to take you home...

Apple iPod nano
You're looking at the coolest kid on the block. The nano was already top totty, but it's returned after the summer hols with an even better look. Its great taste in music and sharp dress sense was always a turn-on to many, but you'll now be excited by its new curves, brushed aluminium chassis, higher storage capacity and better battery life. Cradle it in your hands, stroke it and keep it with you at all times.

Panasonic Viera TH42PX600
This handsome beast of a plasma oozes style. Its matte-black frame hides an invisible speaker system and it's etched with understated Viera hallmarks to prove its heritage. Its excellent build houses some real substance too -- the TH42PX600 offers peerless sound and picture quality and a future-proof specification. Your interest will not wane in this smart offering.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10
If you're in the contingent who likes their cameras ultra-slim, sleek, lightweight and attractive, you'll agree that the DSC-T10 is a fine, fine specimen. Its 7-megapixel lens will ensure your pictures are sharp and clear, but its body will ensure that all your friends know you have good taste. If you're after a camera that will look good by your side at all times, this loyal example won't let you down.

Sony Vaio TX3
We fell in love -- yes, the 'L' word -- with the Sony Vaio TX2, but it left us for all manner of dirty, sweaty common commuters. So in true style we went out on the rebound and found something better -- the TX2 has a younger, sexier sibling that rendered it insignificant. The TX3 looks almost identical to the TX2 but has more on the inside, and in this instance that matters. It now has an Intel Core Solo CPU and a fingerprint reader, which is just asking for it in our opinion. And it's bragging that it can now go for 6.6 hours -- we can't wait to test it out.

Motorola Krzr K1
Sometimes you want something to come right up to you and flaunt itself and the Krzr does just that. Its blue mirrored, shiny shell is just asking for attention and that name has got floozy written all over it. But before you shun it as a use-once-and-throw-away option, it's worth pointing out that it has actually got some brains inside its flashy exterior -- it boasts a 2-megapixel camera and an MP3 player, so we think this phone is worth more than just one night of action -- it might just surprise you with a place in your heart.

Samsung BD-P1000
You like young, expensive totty? You should get hold of the Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray player quickly -- before it loses its virginal appeal. It's the first Blu-ray player to arrive in the UK and its build and design are immaculate. It can play high-definition Blu-ray Discs, producing image quality that scales new heights, and it will appeal to you ravenous early adopters. Save up and splash out.

Asus S6F
Pink to make the boys and girls wink. And leather-clad... it just doesn't get any better -- the Asus S6F will please the kinky, the kooky and the crazy. At just 11 inches it's so small and portable, you can use it in all manner of places -- and you'll never tire of fondling its smooth contours. It's not just a style icon, either -- it packs some powerful components to keep its performance up, and it promises a long battery life, too, so you can be sure it won't be flaking early.

Philips 42PF9831D
HD Ready 42-inch LCD TV with new Ambilight Surround and ClearLCD technologies -- got you drooling yet? Our review said "quite possibly the finest performer with high definition we've seen", but combined with its gorgeous gloss-black screen surround, its unique white 'canvas' back panel and the fact that the edges glow in the dark, what we actually meant was that we're in love. Yes, you heard it, L-O-V-E. It's a trip to Tiffany's for Crave and this TV.

Samsung X820
We've seen phones get slimmer and slimmer in the last few months, but is there such a thing as too thin? Not in our opinion -- we're all over the Samsung X820 and its minuscule 6.9mm depth. Wear tight trousers (and we frequently do) and this baby can slip in to your pocket unnoticed. And how this can offer a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, speakerphone and a bright colour screen in such a small package is quite beyond us -- we're hooked.
