Still on a Samsung tip – the company announced loads of stuff during its press conference – how about the SC-HMX20C Progressive HD Flash-based camcorder? It's got a 1080p mode with 30 frames-per-second recording, and comes with a docking station to recharge it or connect to an HDTV to watch your footage.
