DSK Digital is launching this Texas Instruments OMAP3 600mhz ARM based full Linux computer system for a whole bunch of low power, even solar powered computing for on the field healthcare, e-government and teacher training applications.
Argosy released a new affordable full HD video player the HV335T based on the Realtec processor and is releasing a new one with DVB-T and composite video recording the HV339T.
New e-ink e-readers shown at CeBIT 2010 by Daza Electronics.
usmart Sun Power Technology Limited is showing what they say is the world's smallest x86 computer, comes with a 4.8" screen, Intel Atom 1.60ghz processor, 512mb RAM, USB port, WiFi, MicroSD slot, removable battery that lasts 2 hours of Windows XP usage. It should cost below $500 if it becomes available. This device when I touched it for a few seconds it seems to be very hot and it was actually shaking because of the small fans that are inside. Though this is a hand made early prototype.
RealVNC software is being used by millions of people around the world for remote access to computers.
This is the first Android device with such a gaming buttons layout. It's affordable available at around $300 unlocked at http://hardkernel.com but does not come with a 3G modem, only WiFi. It does have a pretty snappy ARM Cortex A8 processor from Samsung clocked at 833mhz, with 512MB DDR2 memory, a 3.5-inch capacitive touch screen display and 720p video playback through its built-in HDMI output. This is for now the Developer Edition of this ODroid product to be released in March 2010, followed by commercial editions of this product, to hopefully include full emulators for all game consoles ported to Android up to N64 and Dreamcast games if this device's 3D acceleration and processing power will be able to handle those emulators and if developers port those to this implementation of Android.
The nHD is the next generation of Texas Instruments Pico Projector DLP solutions, this time even more compact, uses lower power, will be available for an even lower cost than the current DLP based Pico Projector solutions. This will enable manufacturers of Smart Phones, of Portable Video Players, of Netbooks, Tablets and more such devices to integrate an amazing projector right into the devices without adding too much weight and cost to the devices. This next generation nHD chip will start to be manufactured by Texas Instruments in the next few months and could soon after be integrated in one of your next devices. The first batches take up less than half the volume and power consumption compared to previous Pico Projector generations, may "only" project a 640x360 image with low lumen output to save battery runtime, but Texas Instruments definitely says they could upgrade those to HD resolutions and improve the brightness of the output all the while consume less battery power.
Check out the recording of the live video coverage from this morning at 10AM from in front of the Archos booth at CeBIT 2010:
Thanks to JKK Mobile for the awesome live video upload system he's using to broadcast live on the http://meetmobility.com/ setup by Chippy of UMPCportal.com. They are streaming during the whole of CeBIT every two hours or so at http://meetmobility.com/live/
Streaming live video from the CeBIT has been kind of like my dream, but I never got to actually experiment with live 3G and WiFi video streaming upload setups, good cameras, video capture, good sound, testing to make sure it works, having backup connections for optimal video bandwidth thropughput and working this way together with someone in a studio to do live video editing to coordinate more than one live video-blogger. So it is really fun to see JKK and Chippy achieve something like it, even though the 3G bandwidth doesn't seem to be optimal in this case.
Asus is showing this 9" e-reader that uses SiPix and comes with a pretty cool capacitative touch screen for navigation, text input and more. It will come in WiFi and GSM versions.
This is a 7" Windows CE tablet, but with a very interesting user interface, comes with GPS, HDMI output, based on a Telechips processor that playsback 1080p video, is based on Windows CE that I think is made to look like Android.
