We’ve seen Benq slimmest 8MP digicam DSC-X800 early this year, they has snuck in another slim digital compact onto its global site. Claiming world’s slimmest 3-inch LCD screen compact with a 10 megapixel Son’y 1 / 2.3-inch CCD sensor; the 16.8mm thick E1050 covers a range of 35.5mm-106.5mm (35mm equiv.) with 3x optical zoom lens and offering web sharing mode for online digital multimedia content. Image storage is taken care of by SD cards or the 10MB internal memory. Metallic gray is the only choice of color with Price and availability to be announced later.
Next on the netbook hit-parade is BenQ's Joybook Lite U101. As has become increasingly common, the specs of the U101 are more of the netbook-by-numbers generic fare: a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 display, together with an 8.9-inch version.
BenQ's Mobile Internet Device (MID) has been hawked around tradeshows for almost a year now, with its official announcement taking place at CES 2008. BenQ has suggested the compact touchscreen device would launch in Europe this quarter, and seemingly put together a new press photo that BusinessWeek have included as part of their IDEA Award Winners 2008 feature.
BenQ have announced what they're calling the "world's slimmest 8-megapixel camera", the T850. Featuring 1600 ISO, a 3x optical zoom and smc PENTAX lens, the T850 measures in at just 14.9mm deep, with a stainless steel body available in either red or black. BenQ have obviously been looking to the latest cellphones for their UI, as the 3-inch touchscreen responds to gestures such as tap, circle and swipe.
BenQ presented a sleek and slim X835 last month with a mere 12.5mm in thickness. Apparently that wasn’t enough, they have went beyond 10mm this time with DSC-X800 claiming World’s Slimmest 8mp digital compact camera at 9.8mm.
BenQ will be officially presenting its MID Companion Device at CES 2008, hoping to rekindle any waning interest in the UMPC ultraportable tablet format with its pocketable internet browsing handheld. Based on Intel's Menlow platform, and fully wirelessly capable thanks to both WiFi and 3.5G cellular broadband, the MID uses a Linux OS rather than something from Microsoft's stable.
