We first heard about the LG X120 back at CES in January. And sure, we got a good look at the device and at its specs but one thing was notably missing: a release date. Can you see where this is going? Well, we've got our hands on a release date (finally) and as it turns out, it's right around the corner.
The design of this Portable Digital Media Center may not be retro, but it's interpretation of "portable" certainly is, taking us back to the days where a 14-inch CRT TV was considered highly luggable. In this case, Chinavision offer an 8-inch swiveling LCD display, DVD and CD player, FM radio and even retro NES gaming.
Last November Nintendo starts selling DSi in Japan, and promised US launch sometimes in 2009. That sometimes has finally gotten a date, April 5th. The DSi is a small step up from current Nintendo DS Lite, with slimmer body, addition of two cameras, SD slot, and larger 3.25-inch screen.
With the announcement of DSi, Nintendo also roll out DSi Shop, a commerce system that allows gamers to buy and download games or demos using DSi points. I’ve been playing with DSi for quite sometimes now and these features upgrades are worth paying for.The DSi will be priced at $170 when it hits the shelf.
You would think a mini 5-inch TV with waterproof feature has no use in your neck of wood, it does has its marketing value around the pool, outdoor and suitable for housewives like to spend time watching soup opera in the kitchen or bathtub. Apparently the Panasonic in Japan thought so, they have announced new models with upgrades to its IPX6/7 portable 5-inch Viera displays with better contrast, reception and improve power efficiency.
Today we got our first look at the latest offering from AVerMedia. The AVerVision VP-1 Portable Visual Presenter is an affordable way to display images and documents in a public setting without having to fork over the cash for a full on projector.
It can be used to display images on a TV or computer screen or on a blackboard if connected to an external projector. The device features a 2-megapixel camera, auto focus and 8x digital zoom. It's small and weighs just 2.7 pounds but can project images sized up to A4 paper.
This device can also apparently utilize a 28mm adapter to show what a microscope can see. You can even connect it to video devices and computers. It features an RCA and a VGA output and a VGA input. You can choose between 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x960 resolutions. You can get the AVerVision VP-1 Portable Visual Presenter for $450 now.
As anyone who has attempted to carry a keyboard - and we're talking musical, not QWERTY - any distance, you'll know it's generally not the most accommodating of shapes. Infinite Response are attempting to address that, with the VAX77 controller; 76-keys, a powder-coated magnesium casing and plenty of presets for all manner of hardware and software synths, its party trick is a hinge down the middle that lets it collapse to a far more manageable 23.3 x 14.5-inches.
A waste of technology but there are occasions one seeks for durability than performance in external storage. The Greenhouse Pocket SSD GH-SSDEGU-M doesn’t promise blisteringly fast transfer speeds, but the use of solid state MLC technology has level of ruggedness and durability which is simply unmatched with moving-part hard disk drives devices.
In this modern era of digital entertainment, it's no wonder that we often burn through our hard drive space in a jiffy. That's why external storage is such a nice option to have. But often, external hard drives are bulky or downright ugly. But not the Iomega eGo Leather Portable Hard Drive. This thing is downright fancy.
