What Motorola’s i576 cellphone lacks in looks, it makes up for with ruggedness. Military certified for dust, shock, vibration and extreme temps, it also includes Bluetooth and GPS.
Sony Ericsson’s sexy G705 slider phone is coming Q1 2009 to the States, and will get tri-band 3G and YouTube compatibility. Also: auto-rotating screen orientation and a built-in GPS.
Sony’s new Vaio NS has a singular, but powerful claim to fame: this 15.4″ laptop gets a Blu-ray drive. Not bad for a sub-$1000 notebook, although you’ll be stuck with integrated graphics.
The Antec Skeleton PC case takes care of ventilation by stripping out most of the walls and slapping a 250mm fan on top; in total, there’s room for 7 expansion slots and 4 drive bays.
Not quite a DSLR yet not quite a point and shoot, Panasonic’s 12.1MP Lumix DMC-G1 uses a micro four thirds system that loses the mirror and prism but allows for swappable lens.
Using a motion sensor a-la-Wii, the Fitbit tracker can monitor your exercise levels and the quality of your sleep. The portable clip-on form factor and Wi-Fi syncing are tres cool, too.
LG’s Lotus is like a cellphone-ized version of the last gen Nano, with a squat clamshell design, full keyboard, 2MP camera and stereo bluetooth. It’ll be available with Sprint in October.
Asus’ Eee PC 901 has dropped by $100, from $600 to $500; we suspect it’s due to competition from other netbooks, including Dell’s Inspiron Mini 9 and the Acer Inspire One.
Boynq’s Wake-Up iPod Dock is uber-stylish, with three backlit LCDs for time, radio station and input channels. It also sports 3″ speakers and an equally stylish remote control.
Although we’re not sold on its ergonomics, Microsoft’s Arc Mouse definitely turns heads with its folding clamshell design. Along with a tiny USB transceiver, it’s ideal for laptop users.
In addition to their Explorer line, Microsoft has added BlueTrack tech to their SideWinder X8 gaming mouse, giving it an impressive 4,000 DPI and 30 hours on a single charge.
Altec Lansing’s iPod-friendly inMotion Speakers both look and sound great: the moondance GLOW is a dual-alarm clock radio, while inMotion MAX delivers crisp, full-spectrum sound.
Ion Audio’s iCue Mixer is a compact, entry level system for those wanting to mix MP3s from their computer. We do recommend a 3.5mm Y-splitter for your headphones, however.
The Sony Vaio AW laptop is ideal for photographers, with an 18.4″ Bravia-based LCD screen. It’ll also get a GeForce 9600M GT, dual 250GB or 64GB SSD drives and a Blu-ray burner.

Like their other remote, the Universal MX-6000 is only available to installers; too bad, because this bad boy has a 4.3″ touchscreen, built-in Wi-Fi and runs on a 533 MHz ARM CPU.
HP’s 14.1″ EliteBook 6930P runs an astounding 24 hours on an optional high capacity battery. Similarly styled to their flagship 8730W, you’ll want an SSD hard drive to maximize time.
Although we’d prefer an LCD, Mitsubishi’s massive 65″ LaserVue TV still has us drooling. The rear projection unit does 1080p but only uses half the power of a plasma or LCD TV.
A 1.9″ QVGA display and 2 MP camera aren’t anything special for a cellphone, but the Meridiist’s $5k pricetag comes from its crocodile leather back and hand-brushed stainless steel keypad.
We’re eagerly awaiting the restocking of these Soft Sector coasters; based on 5.25″ floppies, they even sport the classic read/write notch. We’re totally digging the retro colorway, too.
