The world’s first full HD glasses-free 3D laptop
The Toshiba Qosmio F750 3D is the world's first laptop with the ability to display beautiful full HD 3D images on screen without the need for 3D glasses. The 15.6" screen supports the simultaneous display of full HD 2D and 3D content and a webcam tracks users' eye movements so the 3D image is perfectly matched to your eye position. Inside, the Toshiba Qosmio F750 3D runs on a second-generation Intel Core i processor, NVIDIA graphics and audio from Harman Kardon with Dolby Advanced Audio optimization technology. The Toshiba Qosmio F750 3D will be available from August 2011 for £1299.99 (€1450).
A smartphone that will help you get fit
The Sony Ericsson Xperia active is a dust-proof, water-resistant smartphone made tough so you can get active. The Android-powered device sports a 3" scratch-resistant multitouch screen with wet finger tracking plus a range of applications designed to track your fitness, monitor your heartbeat through ANT+, and boost your performance. There is also a 5MP camera, an exchangeable soft touch back cover, detachable ear hooks for handsfree talking, and a wrist strap. The Sony Experia active will be available globally from Q3 2011. Pricing is yet to be revealed.
A nomadic, micro projector with just one cord attached
Acer's Pico-Projector C110 has been designed as a compact companion for mobile consumers with a laptop, tablet or smartphone. There is no power pack, cables or searching for power points. All it requires is a single USB cable to power up, transmit and project multimedia in display sizes ranging from 30cm up to 254cm. The C110 has a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a resolution of 854x480. It weighs in at just 175 grams and measures 110x85x25 mm. No word on pricing or release date.
A dual-core Android smartphone built for the Asian market
Motorola's MT870 is the world’s first dual-core TD-SCDMA 3G smartphone (and Motorola’s second dual-core smartphone for the Chinese market). The powerful smartphone is designed for China’s media-centric mobile consumers and runs Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread mobile operating system. It has two 1GHz processors for faster application handling, a large 4" qHD (960x540) touchscreen display, HD 1080p video recording, an 8MP camera with built-in LED flash, support for HDMI output, DLNA and WLAN. The Moto MT870 is available now in China for RMB 4,680 (€505).
A micro Hi-Fi system for people who like "classic analogue style"
Sony has come up with the simple yet elegant-looking G Series CMT-G1BiP micro Hi-Fi as an understated alternative to many of the gaudier Hi-Fi systems on the market. The compact system delivers crisp sound and offers ample solutions for connecting an iPhone/iPod or for playing music via USB and WiFi. The G Series micro Hi-Fi will be available in August. No pricing information has been announced.
