Bottom display on Spring Design Alex
CES 2010 takes place from 5 through 9 January in Las Vegas and we are wandering the show floor and checking out the latest in mobile gadgetry. Most items will eventually appear later this year for you to purchase.
Dual screen ebook reader
The Alex ebook reader is more than just an ebook reader with a full Google Android computer on the bottom. It is zippy and looks fantastic. The top eInk display can also display web pages as well as ebooks.
Another Marvell ebook reference design
Marvell was showing a few different devices powered by their processors. This one was quite compact and had the title of Armada.
enTourage eDGe device
Here we see a rather large dual screen device combining the functions of an e-reader, netbook, notepad, and audio/video recorder and player in one.
MSI Wind U135 netbook
MSI has a couple new netbooks coming in early 2010 and the U135 looks to be replacing the popular U100.
MSI Wind U160 netbook
This is MSI’s top of the line netbook with a chicklet-style QWERTY keyboard that felt great.
The trackpad is integrated in the lower portion of the device. There is still a single button on the bottom of the trackpad.
The ZOMM looks like a simple device and it operates easily, yet it serves some pretty critical functions.
PowerMat 2x with integrated battery
This PowerMat product lets you connect at home, but then pack it up and take it with you with the large battery.
2X PowerMat with battery rolled out
Here you can see I rolled out the stacked battery and PowerMat.
Wilson Electronics Sleek
This universal cradle and assembly increases the receiving power of your cell phone by up to 20 times.
This small Linux-powered device looks to be a fairly functional netbook.
Closed Lenovo Skylight
The Skylight is light and has a very sleek form factor.
Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3 netbook
This is a great looking netbook that has it all.
S10-3 QWERTY keyboard
The now familiar chicklet QWERTY keyboard has a great design that rivals the one on my MacBook Pro.
Lenovo IdeaPad U-1
This is the device that caught my eye and has been stated by others as the one that shows Apple should skip the tablet.
U-1 dropping the display
The display pops out of the U-1 and the 1GHz Snapdragon kicks on to give you a wireless experience.
Samsung E6 ebook reader
I never heard of this device and am not really surprised that someone else is launching an ebook reader. 2010 is definitely the year of the ebook.
Samsung E6 in hand
It is quite a compact ebook reader.
Button on the Samsung E6
The display slides up to reveal some hardware buttons.
Xperia X10 in hand
This 1GHz Snapdragon Android device is coming to Canada.
Xperia X10 graphical interface
The X10 runs fairly standard Android with a few apps from SE to optimize the media experience.
Translucent OLED display
I thought it was cool how you could see through this display.
QUE proReader device
This is not an ebook reader, but an eInk device that lets you take documents on the go to work with.
Palm press conference
Jon Rubinstein entered the stage to kick off the event.
The Palm Pre has done pretty well and will be getting a nice upgrade on Verizon.
Pogo Plus 2
There are four available USB ports for connecting you to your content.
Front USB on Pogo Plus 2
Three ports are on the back with one on the front for easy access.
Side of the Pogo Plus 2
I guess the pink will help keep you from missing the Pogo Plus, huh?
Palm Pre Plus in hand
Same form factor without the center bottom hardware button. The area is touch sensitive so no hardware button is required.
QWERTY keyboard on Pre Plus
The keyboard colors have changed from orange to white so should have a bit better contrast.
SIMS 3 on the Pre Plus
The games look fantastic I you may get lost in this one for hours.
Need for Speed Undercover
Racing in 3D comes to the Pre Plus.
Pixi Plus in hand
The Pixi Plus has the same external form factor as the existing Pixi.
Alternative back of Pixi Plus
There are some available backs to customize your device a bit.
