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.

Toshiba BDX3100KB 3D Blu-ray Unveiled, Due in the UK This October

Toshiba BDX3100KB 3D Blu-ray Unveiled, Due in the UK This October

There's no denying that companies all over the place are jumping onto the 3D bandwagon. Obviously someone, somewhere up on the corporate food chain in all of these manufacturers believe that 3D is the way to go. And, as long as that means we don't have to pay a hefty price tag at the theaters every time we want to enjoy some 3D goodness, we can see where they're coming from. (Of course, 3D in the home is still pretty expensive too.) With that being said, Toshiba is making another push into the 3D Blu-ray market today, with the announcement that the BDX3100KB 3D Blu-ray player will be released later this year.

Toshiba Camileo S30 & P20 Unveiled, 1080p Recording in One Hand

Toshiba Camileo S30 & P20 Unveiled, 1080p Recording in One Hand

Having a camera small enough to hold in one hand comfortably, but pack enough recording power to make it worth your while isn't a new feat, but it is indeed something that we still look forward to. Not that there's plenty of options out there, mind you. But, when something like the Camileo S30 and P20 break cover, and look as attractive as they do, we can't help but get excited about the future of our 1080p recording endeavors.

Philips Fidelio iPad speaker dock

Philips Fidelio iPad speaker dock

It's not exactly a stretch: the iPad has the same dock connector as the iPhone and iPod, so why not make a speaker-dock that will accept Apple's slate as well as its smaller PMPs?  That's what Philips has done with the Fidelio [PDF link], a stereo speaker dock that takes the iPad not just the smaller models, and also packs Bluetooth so the music can continue even when the tablet isn't in place.

Toshiba Folio 100 hands-on [Video]

Toshiba launched their Folio 100 smartpad earlier this week, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the Android 2.2 Froyo table at IFA 2010 today.  The second significant Android slate of the day - after we played with the smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab earlier on - it's a bigger beast too, with a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen (with 4-point multitouch) and NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset like its AC100 sibling.  The good news is that it's a reasonably decent slate; the bad is that it looks like it won't be reaching the US.

Philips GoGear Connect hands-on [Video]

Philips' GoGear Connect PMP was meant to make its debut here at IFA 2010, but the company took the wraps off a few days early after leaks. We grabbed hands-on time with the Android-based media player today, and - after a somewhat glitchy start - found it's actually a decent attempt to twist Google's OS into a more narrow focus of device. Check out our first impressions and some video after the cut.
