The Alex ebook reader is more than just an ebook reader with a full Google Android computer on the bottom. It is zippy and looks fantastic. The top eInk display can also display web pages as well as ebooks.
Marvell was showing a few different devices powered by their processors. This one was quite compact and had the title of Armada.

This is MSI's top of the line netbook with a chicklet-style QWERTY keyboard that felt great.
The trackpad is integrated in the lower portion of the device. There is still a single button on the bottom of the trackpad.
The ZOMM looks like a simple device and it operates easily, yet it serves some pretty critical functions.
This PowerMat product lets you connect at home, but then pack it up and take it with you with the large battery.

The now familiar chicklet QWERTY keyboard has a great design that rivals the one on my MacBook Pro.
This is the device that caught my eye and has been stated by others as the one that shows Apple should skip the tablet.
The display pops out of the U-1 and the 1GHz Snapdragon kicks on to give you a wireless experience.
I never heard of this device and am not really surprised that someone else is launching an ebook reader. 2010 is definitely the year of the ebook.

This 1GHz Snapdragon Android device is coming to Canada.

There are four available USB ports for connecting you to your content.
Three ports are on the back with one on the front for easy access.
I guess the pink will help keep you from missing the Pogo Plus, huh?
Same form factor without the center bottom hardware button. The area is touch sensitive so no hardware button is required.
The keyboard colors have changed from orange to white so should have a bit better contrast.
The games look fantastic I you may get lost in this one for hours.
Racing in 3D comes to the Pre Plus.
Racing was fun and the graphics were seamless on the Pre Plus.
The Pixi Plus has the same external form factor as the existing Pixi.
There are some available backs to customize your device a bit.
