A new waterproof HD ultra-portable camcorder from Sanyo

ASUS Eee Tablet preview

Darren Murph writes about a new e-reader device from Asus, called the Eee Tablet.

“The Eee Tablet is half e-reader, half note taker, and it’s an interesting twist on a played product category. Gone is the painfully slow E-Ink page refresh that Kindle owners are so accustomed to, with this particular LCD proving deliciously quick at changing screens. The only hang-up comes when you attempt to flip through too many pages, too fast — we managed to harness a loading wheel on two occasions, both of which took around six or eight seconds to vanish and the next page to finally appear. We also confirmed that the screen only works with the included stylus, much like pen-enabled Wacom tablets.”

Paul Miller writes about a new waterproof HD portable camera product from Sanyo.

“The DMX-CA100 will be launched at the end of June for some unnamed price, and shoots 1080p video to H.264, 14 megapixel stills, and offers a 6x optical zoom augmented by a 6x ‘Advanced Zoom’ that crops the image sensor instead of just blowing up the pixels like a regular digital zoom.”

Nokia N900 fails to impress

Adrian Kingsley-Hughes writes why research firm, Gartner, thinks Nokia’s N900 handset device isn’t as successful as the manufacturer hoped it would be.

“According to Gartner, Nokia’s flagship N900 handset has failed to get much in the way of mainstream traction, with less than 100,000 sold during it’s first five months of availability. While the N900, with it’s chunky look-and-feel, slide-out keyboard and touch-screen might have won the hearts of small number of hardcore hardware geeks, the handset has failed to ignite much interest amongst mainstream users … but it’s not Android, and it’s not iPhone, and that’s an automatic black mark against the device. Shame, because the N900 is a pretty good handset.”
