IDTI 21.5-inch Full HD touchscreen display for $300

IDTI 21.5-inch Full HD touchscreen display for $300

Touchscreen displays are slowly making their way into the home, accelerated since Microsoft stepped up their touch functionality in Windows 7, but they're still expensive.  IDTI reckon they have a low-cost alternative, however; their 21.5-inch display responds to pen input and two-point multitouch thanks to a proprietary touch technology, but best of all they're expecting to launch it with a $300 price tag.

Intel Atom “storage optimized” platform promises faster NAS

Intel Atom “storage optimized” platform promises faster NAS

Intel's Atom processors may be best known for their role in netbooks, but the low-power chips have also been making inroads into always-on devices such as NAS, RAID arrays and small servers.  It comes as little surprise, then, that Intel have pushed out its first "storage-optimized" Atom-based platform, using the latest D410 and dualcore D510 CPUs paired with the high-throughput Intel 82801IR I/O Controller.  Apparently the platform has already been picked up by LaCie, LG, QNAP, Synology and Thecus for upcoming products.

ASUS EeeTop ET2010PNT and ET2010AGT spotted

ASUS' next-gen all-in-ones have been spotted at CeBIT 2010 this week, lurking at the company's booth.  Two new models were on show, the EeeTop ET2010PNT first tipped back in January, complete with NVIDIA Ion 3 graphics, and the EeeTop ET2010AGT with an AMD Athlon II X2 250u processor and ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics.

NVIDIA GTX 480 Fermi-based video card leaks

NVIDIA GTX 480 Fermi-based video card leaks

It's obviously a week for leaky video cards, as after the first sighting of Sapphire's stonking Radeon HD 5970 yesterday comes in-the-wild images of NVIDIA's rival card, the GTX 480.  Based on the company's Fermi architecture, the GTX 480 is tipped to begin arriving on cards from select manufacturers this month.

ASUS’ iPad-rival tablet strategy includes multiple models this year

ASUS’ iPad-rival tablet strategy includes multiple models this year

Back when ASUS CEO Jonney Shih told us to expect a "killer product" from the company this coming June, we assumed it would be the launch of their Tegra 2 based tablet.  Now, it looks like that's not one device but a range of iPad-rivals; according to Eric Chen, corporate VP of the ASUS systems business group, the company "will have similar products. We have a couple of projects under way."

ASUS RT-N56U “fashion” router plus RT-N76U, RT-N13U & AP-N13M hit CeBIT 2010

ASUS RT-N56U “fashion” router plus RT-N76U, RT-N13U & AP-N13M hit CeBIT 2010

I don't think we've ever played a game of "wireless router, cheese grater or oil-filled radiator?" here on SlashGear, but there's a first time for everything.  Forgive me for giving the answer away, but you're looking at the dimpled front of the ASUS RT-N56U router, an unusually designed and certainly distinctive addition to the company's range.  It's in fact one of a number of new routers ASUS have wheeled out for CeBIT 2010 this week.

Shuttle I-Power GXT Mini external GPU gets video demo

Shuttle I-Power GXT Mini external GPU gets video demo

Gigabyte's external-GPU BookTop M1305 and M1405 notebooks aren't the only machines relying on a separate graphics boost at CeBIT 2010 this week.  Shuttle have brought along their interpretation, in the shape of the I-Power GXT Mini, a compact box fitted - in this case - with an ATI Radeon HD 4650 that hooks up to Shuttle netbooks via a special GXP port that looks a little like a larger HDMI port.

Binatone iHome and DSP Multimedia Handset slap Android on DECT landlines

Binatone iHome and DSP Multimedia Handset slap Android on DECT landlines

The landline phone industry lacks the glamour (or at least the relentless hunger for an upgrade) of its cellular sibling, and so it's perhaps no surprise that manufacturers are looking to borrow some Android hype.  Both Binatone and DSP have added their Android-powered landline phones to the ring, in the shape of the Binatone iHome and the DSP Multimedia Handset.

Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 claims “fastest video card” title

Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 claims “fastest video card” title

My first desktop PC had a single fan; now we're looking at video cards which tote three fans apiece.  Such is the price of progress, and such is the awesome Sapphire Radeon HD 5970, based on ATI's Radeon HD 5970 GPU and quietly brought out to play at CeBIT 2010 this week.  According to Sapphire the triple-thick card is the fastest in the world.

Acer Aspire One 532G Ion 2 netbook priced at €379

Acer may have brought their Aspire One 532G netbook along to MWC 2010 last month, but they were keeping quiet on what the NVIDIA Ion 2 toting netbook would cost.  They've spilt the beans on that at their CeBIT 2010 press conference today, however; the 10-inch netbook will run to €379 ($516) when it arrives on shelves.

1Cross B’ook ereader: Entourage eDGe on a budget? [Video]

Trade shows always bring out some unusual hardware, and the 1Cross B'ook is perhaps one of the odder we've seen from CeBIT 2010 so far this week.  Borrowing from the design of both the Entourage eDGe and the Barnes & Noble nook, the dual-display clamshell ereader has a 6-inch E Ink panel on the left side and a 3.2-inch LCD touchscreen on the right; unlike the eDGe, the majority of the right side is taken up by a physical touch-sensitive keyboard and shortcut buttons.

Mio Moov V780 MID gets hands-on video: promising but pricey

Mio Moov V780 MID gets hands-on video: promising but pricey

Mio's Moov V780 hybrid MID/PND device certainly has potential, at least going from the spec sheet, with a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, WiFi b/g and optional 3G and WiMAX, together with 720p HD video output capabilities.  What we didn't know was pricing, and according to jkkmobile - who caught up with the Moov V780 at CeBIT 2010 this week - that may be where the Mio tablet hides its sting.  Still, there are hints of an Android update in the future, and a bit of a surprise about the CPU.
