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.

Archos Vision Series PMPs: 1.4 to 4.3-inches

Not, perhaps, as interesting as the company's new Home Tablets, but Archos also have a line of new and updated PMPs to show at CeBIT 2010.  The Archos Vision Series ranges from the tiny 24g Vision A14VG, with a video-capable 1.4-inch LCD display, FM radio and 4GB of storage, to the 4.3-inch touchscreen Vision A43VB, with 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 30hr battery and a video-output for playing content on a bigger display.

Gigabyte BookTop M1305 & M1405 with external GPU docks get video demo

Remember Gigabyte's BookTop M1405, the docking-station equipped notebook that not only gained extra ports when locked into place, but an external graphics card?  Gigabyte have been demonstrating it at CeBIT 2010 this week, and it looks an interesting prospect.  In fact, there are two new BookTops, the M1405 - with a 14-inch display - and its 13-inch M1305 partner, packing a choice of Celeron ULV, Pentium or Core 2 Duo processors.  Inside the dock, meanwhile, there's an NVIDIA GeForce GT220 with 1GB of its own DDR3 memory.

Averatec N1200 Series netbooks “thinnest, lightest” on the market

Averatec N1200 Series netbooks “thinnest, lightest” on the market

Averatec have launched their latest netbook range, the N1200 Series, and according to the press blurb they've created the thinnest, lightest 10.1-incher on the market today.  At less than an inch thick and weighing under 2.2lbs it's certainly on the skinny size, though inside you're dealing with the same 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor and GMA 3150 graphics as any other netbook.

SteelSeries 6Gv2 gaming keyboard & 7H headset announced

CeBIT 2010 isn't all about netbooks and tablets; there are peripherals there too.  SteelSeries have outed their latest gaming combo, the SteelSeries 6Gv2 gaming keyboard and the SteelSeries 7H headset.  The former can recognize "as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard" for those particularly hectic late-night gaming sessions, while the latter gets closed ear-cups each with a 50mm driver.

ASUS EeeMedia EM0501 HD-capable media center outed

The O!Play HD2 isn't the only media-centric device that ASUS have quietly snuck into their CeBIT 2010 line-up; there's another, somewhat more interesting set-top box on show too.  The ASUS EeeMedia EM0501 is supposedly a "High Definition Media Center", based around an 800MHz Samsung S5PV210 ARM chipset with 512MB of RAM and a 2.5-inch HDD bay.  It can hook up to your network for streaming content, and output 1080p Full HD.

Hanvon BC10C and BA10E multitouch tablets get CeBIT 2010 video demo

Remember Hanvon's Windows 7 tablet slyly spotted all the way back at IDF 2009 last year?  The company has brought along the latest version to CeBIT 2010 this week, and its gained a sibling too.  The Hanvon BC10C and BA10E each run Windows 7, the BC10C having a 1.3GHz Celeron CPU and the BA10E using a 1.6GHz Atom Z-series CPU, and jkkmobile ended up very impressed by both tablets.
