Okoro OMS-BX300 home theater PC delivers high performance, high price

While companies like Dell and Lenovo are trying to enter the home theater PC market at the low end, with unassuming processors and nary a Blu-ray drive to brag about, Okoro is heading in the opposite direction with its new OMS-BX300 "Blu-ray Digital Entertainment System." Forget an Intel Atom or AMD Athlon CPU—Intel's high-performance Core i7 920 2.

Will pre-teens really adopt the new iPod touch as a VoIP phone?

I generally agree with my friend Andy Abramsom and greatly respect his opinion. He posted today on why he thinks the upcoming rumored iPod touch will be huge for VoIP and multimedia, but I don't think it will have as big of an impact with the teen crowd as he indicates. This new device is rumored to have an integrated microphone, digital camera, and 64GB of memory. I agree that the savvy traveler may desire to use this new device to connect via WiFi and place and receive inexpensive VoIP calls.

HP iPAQ 210 PDA starts shipping for US$449

It is quite rare to find a dedicated PDA without phone functionality today, but it looks like HP is now shipping their iPAQ 210 Enterprise Handheld. This is quite a powerful PDA with a 624MHz processor, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, integrated Compact Flash and integrated Secure Digital slots, 4 inch VGA (480x640 pixels) display, integrated WiFi and integrated Bluetooth radios. Actually, the Dell Axim X51v I have from a couple years ago has just about the same specs, the display is 3.7 inches instead of 4 inches. However, you can no longer find the Axim X51v or HP hx4700 so this new HP is really your only choice for a high-end stand alone PDA.
