LG Display’s 31-Inch OLED TV Showcased at IFA 2010

It was the middle of August when we brought your attention to LG's highly-anticipated 31-inch OLED TV. There was some speculation that the set would make an appearance at this year's IFA, and sure enough it looks like the company managed to sneak it in and put it on display for everyone to look at. Actually, just by looking at the image below, we can safely say that they put it out there for everyone to stare at.

Antec Soundscience Virtual 3D Speakers Coming This Fall for $250

If your living room is usually being used to watch movies or play video games, then you know that having the best sound is critical to a fully enjoyable experience.

But what if you just want a simulated 3D experience? An experience that doesn't come with a huge price tag? Then you'll have to wait just a little bit longer to get your hands on Antec's Soundscience speakers.

Huawei are another company going in for Android in a big way, already behind several of the operator-branded budget smartphones on the market and hoping to follow up that success with the new Ideos U8150, a Froyo 2.2 smartphone with what's tipped to be a roughly $150 unsubsidized price tag.  As well as playing with the U8150 at IFA 2010 today, we also grabbed a fleeting moment with the Ideos S7 tablet and a (non-functional) Huawei prototype for their idea of a potential gaming MID.

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos 70 and Archos 101 hands-on [Video]

Archos weren't short of new internet tablets for IFA 2010, though it's their Archos 70 and Archos 101 which stood out when we stopped by their booth earlier today.  Measuring in at 7- and 10-inches respectively, the two Android slates (running 2.1 right now, but set to launch with 2.2 Froyo) are certainly thin and reasonable feature-packed, each toting a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, 3D OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics accelerator and WiFi b/g/n.

Samsung Galaxy Tab: second helping [Video]

Samsung Galaxy Tab: second helping [Video]

Samsung's Galaxy Tab is shaping up to be the device of IFA 2010, and while we spent some hands-on time - complete with video - with the Froyo slate right after the launch yesterday, we thought we'd head back today to see if our positive first impressions held true.  After the cut, more hands-on video and pictures of the Galaxy Tab, plus details on launch plans, Samsung's intentions for future tablets, and more!

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic's second tablet is more of a work-in-progress than the ViewPad 7, with the ViewPad 100 being a 10-inch dual-booting Android/Windows 7 tablet that's still undergoing plenty of finessing. With a 1024 x 600 two-point multitouch capacitive touchscreen, Atom N455 processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory, it makes for a reasonable netbook replacement (as long as you don't mind losing the hardware keyboard) but, thanks to the presence of Android, also doubles as a quick-loading multimedia player and general entertainment slate.

With a sub-£350 price tag for a 7-inch Android 2.2 Froyo tablet, with 3G voice and data, a capacitive touchscreen and digital camera, we were wondering where the catch was with the ViewSonic ViewPad 7. Having used the compact slate at IFA 2010 this morning, we're still left searching for the compromise: on the face of it, you're getting much of what Samsung is delivering with the Galaxy Tab, only at (perhaps) half the price.

Sound Freaq SFQ01 hands-on

Sound Freaq SFQ01 hands-on

Is there still room for more iPod speaker docks?  New company Sound Freaq reckon so, and their SFQ01 is an attempt to take a slice of the lucrative market.  Designed with - as they themselves said - love-it or hate-it aesthetics, the slab-sided dock system promises above-average sound quality thanks to the company's own UQ DSP system.  Meanwhile, a companion iPad app allows for straightforward remote control, together with streaming from the Apple slate itself.

Native Union Moshi Moshi MM04 Bluetooth handset/speaker combo

Native Union Moshi Moshi MM04 Bluetooth handset/speaker combo

We've written about Native Union's range of Moshi Moshi handsets for cellphones before, and while they've always been endearing in a retro way, you could easily dismiss them as pretty gimmicky.  The company's latest models, though, are a little more usable in their functionality however; the new MM04 is a combination stereo Bluetooth speaker and handset, while the MM03 is a more traditional Bluetooth handset and there are brand new colors of the original Pop handsets.

Sharp Quattron-based 3D TV Introduced, 60-Inches of Increased Brightness

Sharp Quattron-based 3D TV Introduced, 60-Inches of Increased Brightness

This year's proving a good year for in-home 3D TVs. Sharp, which has yet to make a real splash in the market, has just pulled the curtain off their brand new 3D TV, which features their Quattron technology. If that sounds familiar, it should. It was formerly known as QuadPixel, and it's meant to expand the colors displayed on your set, while also increasing the overall brightness. In essence, it's supposed to make the picture you're looking at so much better.
