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.

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 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.
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.
ZOTAC was among the OEMs named in NVIDIA's second-gen Ion launch earlier today, and the company has wasted no time getting a new nettop out in the open. The ZOTAC ZBOX HD-ID11 pairs Ion with 512MB of its own dedicated DDR3 memory and an Intel Atom D510 1.66GHz dual core processor, all in something compact enough to hang off the back of your LCD display.
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.
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.

Remember the three leaked ASUS Eee PC models from last week, the 1015P, 1016P and 1018P? ASUS have delivered on all three, and while we've already seen live shots of the super-slim Eee PC 1018P Prime, we thought you might like more details on the other two machines. The ASUS Eee PC 1015P has the same white plastic styling as previous "Seashell" netbooks from the company, but throws in a 14hr 6-cell 63Wh battery and Intel's latest Atom N450, N455, N470 and N475 processors.
ASUS have quietly added a third model to their O!Play mediaplayer range, the ASUS O!Play HD2. With no information beyond a name in the CeBIT 2010 press release they've sent us, however, and nothing on the company site, we're left guessing to its complete specifications, though the single photo does reveal USB, eSATA and various forms of memory card reader.
Update: The O!Play HD2 is confirmed to have not only USB 2.0 but USB 3.0 connectivity.
You get the feeling that the ASUS Eee Keyboard has become something of a millstone around the company's neck, a constant reminder of CES 2009 and promises they haven't, so far, been able to keep. We've heard more promised release dates than we've had tepid dinners, but at CeBIT 2010 ASUS chairman Jonney Shih has given us another one: he reckons the Eee Keyboard will ship in April 2010.
ASUS have outed their new ebook reader at CeBIT 2010 this week, the DR-900, a 9-inch super-slim device with an E Ink display. The ASUS DR-900 - according to the brief PR blurb the company have supplied - has integrated WiFi and optional 3G connectivity, and they reckon it's no thicker than a pencil.
