Intel UrbanMax Tablet PC concept: Video Demo

Intel UrbanMax Tablet PC concept: Video Demo

Far more interesting than their mysterious slate, Intel have been showing off their UrbanMax concept Tablet PC.  Resembling both an HP tc1100 and an HTC Shift, the concept has a sliding/folding display and full keyboard, with an optical mouse controller embedded into the spacebar.  UrbanMax's 11-inch display uses N-trig's DuoSense digitizer, capable of multiple input methods: a batteryless pen and zero pressure capacitive touch, together with multitouch control.

Check out the demo video of the UrbanMax after the cut

Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0

Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0 combines four programs that make your ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) running Windows Vista even easier to use. Origami Experience 2.0 is available as a free download to UMPC owners. Back in January, Origami Experience 2.0 was released to OEMs for potential inclusion in their units and the HTC Shift is probably the only device shipped with it. You can grab it now if you have a UMPC running Microsoft Windows Vista; just like the original, devices running XP are out of luck.

AlphaGrip bulbous UMPC concept: more buttons than sense

AlphaGrip bulbous UMPC concept: more buttons than sense

It must be galling for all the smartphone and UMPC manufacturers who have tried so desperately to slim their products down into wafer-thin tablets, when actually what's needed is a huge, ergonomically-bulging game-controller-on-steroids.  At least, that's what designer of the AlphaGrip Handheld Computer believes; their entry for the Next-Gen PC Design competition is reminiscent of an XBox 360 controller only with masses of buttons and chording keys underneath for text entry.  There's even a flip-up touchscreen display, flanked by - you guessed it - more controls.

Yes, CTIA is over, but the news isn't finished yet. They have announced their E-Tech Award winners for this year's show.

The coveted Best in Show Award wend to Alltel Wireless for their Celltop technology. Celltop will provide customers with an easier way to access, manage and organize information stored in their phones.

Curiously, my two top picks, the HTC Shift and Helio Ocean were both absent from the list of winners. Check out the full list here, and check back for updates on these products as they become available.

Favorites from CTIA Wireless 2007

Favorites from CTIA Wireless 2007

Today marks the end of CTIA Wireless 2007. We've seen a lot of phones and gadgets over the past week, but what were your favorites, and which vendor were you impressed with the most?

For me, my favorite product is a tie. I can't choose between the Helio Ocean and the HTC Shift. They're both awesome in their respective categories, so it must remain a tie for me. I will say that the Sound Leaf Bone Conduction Receiver Microphone has to be the winner for strangest new product. It's really cool, but still very strange.
