SlashGear Week in Review – Week 50 2008

With just a few weeks until CES 2009, we've been seeing hints of what tech will be showing its head at the biggest consumer electronics event of the year.  Unsurprisingly, netbooks are taking top billing, with MSI confirming three of them.  In fact the budget ultraportables are selling so well, they bested the ever-popular iPhone 3G in Summer sales.  Acer are sitting pretty in the top spot, with their latest model - a 3G-integrated Aspire One - launching this weekend.

jkontherun give Netgear’s WiFi Skype phone the once-over

We looked at Netgear's SPH-101 Skype phone last December, praising it for the convenience of cheap or low-cost VOIP calls and remaining silently critical of the whopping MRSP.  Well, my favourite cam-whore Kevin Tofel has grappled with the handset itself and finds it comes up trumps if portability floats your sexy boat.

Could the Netgear EVA8000 be the best wireless media streamer yet?

Sometimes it's all just a matter of being in the right place at the right time.  Blogger Jeremy Toeman, on a guest stint with Netgear, managed to get his devilish digits on their brand-new EVA8000 Wireless Digital Entertainer HD, a slab of lounge entertainment that can burrow happily through your standard network shares and stream video, music and images to your TV.


CES 2007 Cherry Picks: NETGEAR Dual-Mode DECT Cordless Phone with Skype

I'm a hard-sell when it comes to VoIP handsets, in fact some might say I was just plain picky.  I can't see the point of anything that has to be plugged in to a USB port (unless you've got a server at home, would you really want to leave your PC on all the time on the off-chance that you want to make a call?) and I want as much of the software functionality available from the handset itself without having to go to a computer to set it up.  Well, NETGEAR have met my arduous demands and actually gone a bit further; their SPH200D works both with Skype and your PSTN landline, allowing calls to and from both to be managed simultaneously.

Based on the DECT standard, a full-colour screen, speakerphone and capacity for up to four handsets registered to each base-station round out what's on offer for the $199.99 MRSP.  It's available now.

Netgear Unveiled Digital Entertainer EVA700

Netgear, one of the leading players in wireless networking industry announced a new set top streaming media box named EVA700. Equipped with 802.11G wireless and 10/100 Ethernet, EVA700 is the first top set player in the market that is verified as an Intel Viiv technology compliant. By default, the EVA700 wireless encryption is protected with WEP, however you can update its firmware to support WPA-PSK.
