It seems that Brando can't go a month without bringing out yet another slightly-improved domicile for your orphaned SATA HDDs. Following in the footsteps of the very recent Multimedia Dock, the latest unit adds H.264 decoding to the already present DivX, Xvid and MPEG-4, while output graduates to f

With all these foreign-based GPS units suddenly making their way stateside, we're thrilled to see yet another Taiwanese navigation device get that coveted FCC seal of approval. The latest to pave its way to North American soil is Fortuna's NaView GPS-610B, and while we only truly know that it'll spo

Ah, just what we needed -- yet another Chinese navigation system that touts mutiple layers of functionality, but probably doesn't really excel in any of them. Shenzen Leadertone has its Windows CE-powered GPS3000 on deck and ready for showing at next week's CES, and aside from the somewhat gaudy wi

If you're feeling the screenless, shirt-pocket-friendly DAP design, but want a bit more utility / expandability than what's offered in Apple's 2G Shuffle, NOVOMAX has just the thing. The Joypot CP C210 sports a palm-sized enclosure, weighs just 25 grams, and comes sans internal memory if you choose,

Samsung has a couple of 50-inch plasmas on the way in their HP-T5054 and HP-T5064. That's right, plasmas, not the 50-inch LCDs they're building with Sony. Details are sketchy at best, but we can tell ya that the new panels will feature improved contrast ratio in bright rooms and a unique, automatic

While the NAND-based MMCplus format hasn't exactly reached SD status in terms of universal acceptance and recognition, ATP is unveiling a 4GB high capacity (HC) flavor to level up with its 4GB ProMax SDHC card. It sports a speed rating of 166x (25MB per second) and was designed to \"maximize the perf

If you'll be hitting the streets this winter, and want to feel like you're on the autobahn no matter what roadway you embrace, Becker has unveiled a Ferrari-branded Traffic Assist Pro that takes navigation to an entirely different level. Originally crafted to fit in the exquisite F430 automobile, t

You'd think that we would have heard of a company that's made (or perhaps rebadged) literally hundreds of DAPs and PMPs since 2004, but until we came across the swivel-screen M790, we'd never caught wind of a Chinese manufacturer called Newman. Most of its products are simply cookie-cutter devices t

We remember when $70 wouldn't even buy you a decent VCR, but oh, how times have changed. With upscaling DVD players -- not to mention next-gen optical formats Blu-ray and HD DVD -- currently all the rage, now that same $70 will buy you a device that not only plays DVDs but features memory card slot

Accessory manufacturers like Hitachi-owned Maxell must love new memory card formats almost as much as we hate them, because each tiny new card that hits the market requires a corresponding round of high-profit-margin peripherals to support it. We already knew that the new high-capacity SD version 2.

Samsung just laid their 2GB MMCmicro cards on the table. These little slivers of NAND-based flash memory are said to be the "fastest and highest capacity mobile phone" memory cards available... once they uh, actually ship. Come on Sammy, we're still waiting on your 1GB cards to hit the ma

Because what you really want is a $300 device that connects to your TV and displays pictures. If you're still listening, and I'm sure Sony hopes you are, know that the HDPS-L1 will output JPEG or RAW files at 720p over its component output (what, no 1080p or HDMI Sony?), either from the 80GB hard d
