Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH 520HS crams in 12x zoom

Canon PowerShot Digital ELPH 520HS crams in 12x zoom

Canon's newest ELPH is tiny. Seriously tiny. While not as quite slim as some of its former models, the PowerShot Digital ELPH 520 HS has an overall volume that's impressively tiny for its specs. A 10.1 megapixel sensor should allow most users to get as many pixels as they like, and a 12x-rated optical zoom will let them get in close to capture them. The whole camera is just a little thicker than and deck of cards, and much shorter and more narrow.

Lenovo A7 does touchscreen all-in-one in style

Lenovo A7 does touchscreen all-in-one in style

It's hard for an all-in-one computer to catch our eyes these days, but Lenovo's new A7 unit managed that and then some. At first sight it looks just like a rather large all-in one, until you see the unit bend down to imitate a podium. Then you realize that the computer supports ten-point capacitive touch input on Windows 7, not to mention a considerable laundry list of media features.

Sensics is showing off its new Android-based 3D SmartGoggles at CES, and we've tried it out.

The screens, sensors and other electronics are all housed in the front unit, with a pair of headphones covering your ears and a large brace arcing over your head.

Motorola Droid 4 Hands-on

Motorola Droid 4 Hands-on

The folks at Motorola have finally come clean with the next in line DROID device for Verizon's 4G LTE network, this a qwerty keyboard slider running Motorola's own user interface over Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and having the same capabilities, to a point, that the RAZR has: this is the Droid 4. What we've got going here is a rather tough (or solid, however you look at it,) slider with a backlit set of keys, a dual-core 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, and they've put it on paper that it'll be running Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future.

Sony Ericsson Xperia ion hands-on

We've gotten the opportunity this week to first bear witness to AT&T's real dropping of the hammer on the LTE world with six new devices, then one by one we've been allowed to get up close and personal with them - here with the Sony Xperia ion. This device is Sony Ericsson's first LTE enabled device and has no less than one massively impressive 12-megapixel camera. The back facing camera is also able to film 1080p video, while the front-facing camera is capable of 720p video. This device is both sleek and lovely.

Logitech Fold-Up Keyboard for iPad Hands-on [Video]

Behold the Fold-Up iPad Keyboard from Logitech, compatible with the iPad and the iPad 2. We've gotten our hands on several Logitech accessories over the past week, but this one takes the strangely enticing cake. What you've got here is a keypad that slides out from the sides of the back of your iPad or iPad 2 and swings out and back together as the iPad reaches standing-up state. When you don't need the keyboard anymore, fold it back out and it sits securely under the iPad without a bit of trouble.

Samsung Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC Hands-on [Video]

Samsung Series 7 CHRONOS notebook PC Hands-on [Video]

A lovely set of laptops is what Samsung is presenting next here at this year's Pepcom Holiday Spectacular 2011, the Samsung Notebook Series 7 CHRONOS. This laptop comes in two sizes, one of them a 14-inch profile, the other a 15-inch profile, both of them with bigger displays than you've ever seen before in such a small set of chassis. What we get to see here isn't so much about the insides - things like the Battery Life Plus tech which keeps 80% of the cell's original capacity in a normal life cycle (this providing up to 15,000 charging cycles), instead our presenter from Samsung shows off the uniqueness in the display technology and the coolness of the chassis - well done since we've already also got an IFA 2011 look of one of the two of these notebooks in some nice photo detail as well.

Zumba Fitness dance exercise video game Hands-on [Video]

Zumba Fitness dance exercise video game Hands-on [Video]

Ever since we first heard of systems like the Wii and the Xbox 360 Kinect, we though gosh, that'd be awesome to utilize for exercise games. Imagine that, this is exactly what happened. But here's the thing: development is slow if you compare the exercise game ecosystem with games of basically every other type. There's been some games for the Wii Balance Board, the Wii Fit has seen some action, but what about Xbox 360's Kinect? How about the PlayStation Move? Is it just that gamers simply do not want to use their gaming systems to do work? Zumba Fitness isn't the first game in history to make dancing and therefore exercise an enjoyable activity, but it's certainly the most interesting to your humble narrator's eyes in the past few weeks, that's for sure.
