To go along with our written coverage of Pepcom’s Digital Expereince here is a nice peep show of some gadgets that we got to touch with our sticky BBQ figures.
Sprint Sanyo 6600 Katana – This will be Sprint’s Vision handset while the Samsung A900 is the Power Vision slim-phone. It was thin, light, and had a great screen. Thinness for the masses!
Read on for images and our feelings of the Samsung Q1, Nokia 770, E62, Bluetooth headsets, TomTom GO 910, and more.
Samsung Q1 – This was our first hands-on experience with the Q1. Though our time was limited and the devices is feature rich I could tell that given the time, this would be a product that would make my laptop obsolete. While it takes up about as much space as my laptop, it is certainly a bit more portable, offering many of the same features.
Nokia 770 Internet Tablet – This version of the 770 has new software that included Google Talk, integrated Google search, an onscreen thumb keyboard and much more. We are looking forward to spending more time with the unit in a full Gadgetell Review in the coming weeks.
Nokia’s Blackberry killer, more officially known as the E62 was on show as well. It is almost as thin and light as the Motorola Q, but runs a version of their Symbian OS. The keypad was a nice size, which is key. It will be interesting to see how these new non-RIM models fair against each other (Treo, Q, E62). We are also looking forward to a review of this handset.
Here are some Nokia Bluetooth headsets to go with your new slick phones. Specifically the micro-sized BH-800 and its slightly bigger brother.
HP’s laptops – HP took the guns to the gun show by showcasing their entire line of Pavilion notebooks. I particularly liked the nc4400 12.1″ ultraportable in addition to the HP Compaq tc4400 Tablet PC.
Belkin TuneStage for iPod nano – This wireless audio player can come in really handy, especially by offering the ability to hookup your nano to those sweat speakers you just bought, and hey why not go wirelessly. We can’t vouch for the audio quality yet or it’s ability to send through multiple walls (within the 30 ft. range), but I expect good things from Belkin.
Last but certainly not least, TomTom was showing off their new GO 910 navigation system. As compared to the GO 300 that we had reviewed, this new model blew it away. The screen is brighter, larger, and the system does much more. The models are not a fair comparison considering that besides the screen this model has Bluetooth, maps of the US, Europe, and Canada, 12 GB of free space, and MP3 player…you get the point, this model is loaded.
