One of the age-old dilemmas in the technology world is getting both sides of the new technology coin in play at once. When a new technology like SDXC is unveiled it looks great, but before the cards will be adopted by users and manufacturers there have to be readers and SDXC cards on the market at the same time.
Toshiba have announced the world's first 64GB SDXC memory card, capable of data transfer speeds of up to 35MB per second writes and up to 60MB per second reads. Scheduled to go into mass production in Spring 2010, the 64GB SDXC is aimed at high-resolution digital cameras and HD camcorders.
Judging by the frequent of Pretec breakthrough flash-based storage cards, breaking records must be part of Pretec quarterly exercise. The company is set to unveil not only the World’s First SDXC, but also an unprecedented 100GB CompactFlash at 666x. The latter up the ante, broke company’s own CF’s record at 433X.
Even with new standard still in lobbying effort, Pretec has the go-ahead with the SXDC small form factor flash-based memory standard that’s capable of reaching 2TB. Pretec will exhibit both the 32GB SXDC and 666x, that’s capable of 100MB/s transfer rate, at PMA and CeDIA tomorrow. We’ll visit each both tomorrow to dig deeper on the cost.
Nintendo's uncomfortably named "New 3DS" handheld console has thus far eluded fans in North America. Those long dark days of waiting may be nearing their end, however, with a flier that recently surfaced via NeoGAF suggesting an announcement for North America will be happening in the very near future, and that the console's release will be taking place in nearly one month on the dot. It isn't an official announcement at this point, of course, but such fliers often prove accurate.

HP already has a couple tablets that it offers to tablet users that run the Windows operating system. It has the HP Stream 7 and Stream 8 for instance. Those are both rather inexpensive tablets with the Stream 7 selling for around $100 and the Stream 8 for around $150. Those tablets are both mostly aimed at normal consumers rather than professional users.
Samsung has been bringing curved-screen TVs, monitors, and smartphones to the market for a couple of years. Now it's time to hit the PC market with the ATIV One 7 Curved. This is what Samsung suggests is "the industry's first curved All-in-One PC", coming with a 27-inch curved, Full HD display first and foremost. A 4000R curvature and 178-degrees of viewing angle makes for a visual experience that's larger than a flat screen of the same size. Samsung will be bringing this device to CES 2015 in Las Vegas where SlashGear will be getting up close and personal for you.
There are plenty of music players out there from the mundane iPods that just about everyone has to PMPs that are made specifically for audiophiles that want formats with the best possible clarity. A new portable media player has debuted called the Geek Wave and it promises more clarity than other audiophile grade PMPs available today.
A somewhat obscure Easter egg has been discovered in the new Nintendo 3DS. Apparently first spotted by Vine user "ギロ@スマブる", the Easter egg allows owners to turn their recent browser history into pixelated blocks in a rehashed Breakout game where they destroy it bounce by bounce. This only works for the latest version of the Nintendo 3DS, however, so those with the previous version won't be able to replicate it.
When one hears of cameras, especially digital ones, we usually think of a single slab or contraption that we can take along with us for a ride. The new JVC GW-SP100E 4KCAM, however, is anything but portable. Or rather it is, at least in some ways. Instead of a single camera body, this is actually a full system, composed of a remote camera head, its own separate recording and playback unit, and a remote control to, well, control it all from a safe distance.
