Remember the Palm Foleo? Possibly not - it never came out - but the idea was a mini laptop type device that connected to your smartphone to let you Do Stuff on a bigger screen and keyboard. Anyway, that's also the idea behind the Redfly Mobile Companion, which was announced at CES today.
Okay, so calling something 2.1 doesn't exactly make it sound like a revolution, but anyway. Pick of gaming furniture maker Pyramat's new CES products is the PC Gaming Chair 2.1, which gives you a comfy seat surrounded by all manner of audio goodness.
Kodak has been quick off the mark at CES this year, announcing three big new digital cameras, and a bunch of others. Pick of the bunch is the EasyShare V1273, which is a 12-megapixel cam (pictured above) with 3x optical zoom and a three-inch touchscreen. The V-Series range also gets another new model, the EasyShare V1073, but it's not worth more than a mention on the Kodak CES press release.
We caught up with OQO at last year's CES - it's the grand old inventor of the UMPC market. At least, that's what they say. Anyway, OQO is showing off a WiMAX-enabled version of its Model 02 UMPC at CES this year, in partnership with US telco Sprint, which is rolling out the Xohm WiMAX network.
We're still calming down after seeing Slash rock out with Bill Gates on stage yesterday at CES, but if you're wanting to play a game that tests your proper guitar skills, you should check out Guitar Wizard.
Batteries aren't sexy. Well, unless you're some kind of filthy AAA electrode fetishist. But Energizer doesn't just make batteries. It also makes products that use batteries to do other stuff. That's a bit sexier. Witness the Energi To Go Portable Power for iPod, which was announced yesterday at CES.
Phew. It's been a long day here in Las Vegas (as evidenced by me still working at 12.45am. We attended all the major press conferences, caught Bill Gates' last ever CES keynote, and got a bunch of stories from the Digital Experience press event. See below for links to all the good stuff. Tomorrow, meanwhile, we hit the show itself...
I haven't been blown away by many things so far at CES this year, but Jook is one of the most intriguing startups at the show. The company's technology currently takes the form of a gadget that clips onto your iPod (or iPhone, or Zune, or whatever), and lets you broadcast what you're listening to to people within 30 feet or listen in to their devices.
iLuv was in the house at tonight's pre-CES Digital Experience event, and had a couple of new products on show. The i399 is the company's new iPod speaker dock, with a fat sound and a built-in woofer, and also iLuv's patented Blue Pin technology.
