Lost amid the hoopla surrounding Macworld and iPhone has been a bevy of gadgets highlighted by David Berlind in the Testbed at CES.

Here are some of my favorites:

Samsung releases solid state ultra-mobile Q1 with no moving parts.

Berlind: Samsung launched a successor to its popular Q1 ultra mobile PC (UMPC) called the Q1P SSD. It's the first Q1 to use an SSD solid state flash memory-based hard drive in place of a conventional rotational media-based hard drive.  With SSD, there are no moving parts and the results are faster boot times as well as a much improved resistance to shock.

 
Nabaztag is a digital WiFi rabbit that will jump pretty high for you

Berlind: The Nabaztag is a digital WiFi rabbit. From an industrial design point of view, Nabaztag looks like a plastic rabbit. But he (or is it she) is so much more. Inside the rabbit is a WiFi radio that allows it to communicate through any hotspot to the Internet. It's also over this WiFi connection that Nabaztag receives its programming and customization instructions from Violet's Web site where Nabaztag owners can go to program the rabbit to do certain things.


The MoGo Mouse...

Berlind: If you're one of those road warriors that prefers an external mouse to the touchpad or pointing stick used on pretty much all notebook computers, then MoGo Mouse may be for you. It's a wireless Bluetooth mouse that collapses into a form factor that's so small that it fits into a PC Card slot.

 



Black Diamond’s ruggedized Switchback ultra mobile survives the CES “drop” test

Berlind: Among the UMPCs here at the show is Black Diamond's Switchback PC (pictured above left). The company claims that it's the world's first rugged UMPC. According to the brochure for the rugged UMPC, the Switchback and take beating. It's waterproof, shockproof, dustproof, vibration proof and it can sustain temperatures ranging from 32 to 122 degrees without going down.

 



Taser’s hot pink consumer model used to immobilize CES showgoer

Me: Consumer Taser. Immobilized CES folks. What's not to like?

  • Great gadgets, I like the rabbit, but...

    ... they don't have that certain "I-must-have-one-immediately" that the iPhone (or
    whatever it will be called) has. :-)
