I'm letting the video speak for itself! Pictures after the jump. Impressions:
– Ridiculously light
– Keypad feels normal and usable (looks slightly odd, but in a nice way)
– Touchpad smooth as ice
– Backlit LED screen beautifully bright and not as small as you might think
– Totally covetable (as if you didn't know)
I was three rows away. Three freakin’ rows, as Susi might say. Do you understand what this means? It makes your Cons’ laces untie themselves with the sheer untarnished geek cool of it.

And with Steve Jobs announcing that they’re not even going to bother with the 4GB model over here but go straight to an 8GB model for £269 (only about £70 more than the US using the current exchange rate which is unusually generous for the UK as it’s essentially VAT plus a small premium for UK business costs).

For those of you into your pause and play TV, LG also had new 160GB DVRs with dual digital tuners on display. Each will naturally allow you to watch one program while recording another. They’ve got Freeview Playback Certification from the UK’s Digital TV group, so you can record subtitles and closed captions, in addition to video and audio, as well as intelligently schedule recording times in case a TV programme over-runs.
In the midst of telling us about their plans to turn the world HD (stay tuned for video of this for soon!), Sony also found time to launch a colourful new array of WALKMAN Video MP3 players that now include WMA as a supported format and bear the “PlaysForSure” Windows certification logo.

iSusi and iZara embark on further exploration of the iPhenomenon with the iLuv i'D Think About It.
Ashley and Susi talk Samsung and marvel at the size of the…. user guide.
Alex is disappointed by the Sagem my411x, despite its video capability, media player and super-slim looks.
