Talk about broadening one's horizon. Samsung took a break from pushing its connected HDTVs
and Galaxy S
line here at CES to introduce something just a wee bit different: a baby video monitor line. Yeah, seriously. The BabyView range is said to be engineered to fit into the wild and crazy lifestyles of "tech-savvy parents," enabling proud mamas and papas to share audio and video of their youngster with friends and family via Twitter and Facebook. How so? It'll log video onto a built-in SD card, which can then be offloaded and transferred -- not exactly the most seamless process in the world, but hey, there it is. The whole line will offer night vision, two-way talking, sound / vibration alerts, a remote nightlight, SD card slot and networked support for up to four cameras. Hop on past the break if you need specifics, and look for the whole lot to land this spring for between $199 and $299.
