A phone strap that gives a charge

Don’t let anyone tell you that phone straps are only for sissies and those with challenged motor skills. Even though they’re not for us–not that we have anything against them–Gear Diary makes a compelling case for one that’s both unusual and affordable.

The $12 strap …

All trip data is stored on WorldMate’s servers and synced in real time when the app opens and auto-connects online.

While HTC has joined the Open Handset Alliance and will certainly have a hand in manufacturing Google Android handsets, it’s still committed to making Windows Mobile devices. In fact, the company just announced another drool-worthy smartphone called the HTC Touch Cruise.
