Panasonic was showing off its new lineup of cameras and camcorders at its display table at Digital Experience, but that wasn't what really caught our eyes. Nope, that honor went to the DMP-B500, a portable Blu-ray player that had both a killer screen and a (fairly) slim profile. Better yet, it doubles as a standalone Blu-ray player when you connect it to your TV, and it links up nicely with other VIERA products. Also on display was a WiFi photo frame with a built in CD player and a hidden iPod dock. Calendar and photo widgets looked nice on the crisp display, and let's just put it this way, we don't know how much we'd mind waking up to that in the morning. You don't have to take our word for it though, check our the goods in our hands-on gallery.
